Supervisor – Professor Debra Bernhardt
We are looking for PhD researchers to join our team which is investigating processes occurring in clean energy storage systems and/or polymer processing using molecular simulations. Computer simulations at the molecular level allow an understanding of the behaviour of a system to be obtained under operating conditions. This provides the knowledge and information to assist in improving processes. Our group is interested in sustainable energy applications and processing as well as developing new methods to simulate these systems. The PhD student will use state-of-the-art simulation methods developed in our group and by others, to study these out-of-equilibrium systems and contribute to the development of more sustainable technologies in this way.
A working knowledge of undergraduate-level mathematics and a keen interest in either clean energy applications and/or polymer processing would be of benefit to someone working on this project.
