The School of Mathematics and Physics is seeking an exceptional doctoral candidate in Computational Physics or Applied Mathematics for a fully-paid for PhD Studentship.
The successful candidate will join the dynamic and rapidly growing Computational Physics Group and will work on computer modelling of collective dynamics in active matter, such as large systems of self-propelling particles. Nature examples would be: flocks of birds, schools of fish, ants, groups of bacteria, etc. These systems develop coherent motion, amazing the observer by the diversity of its forms and shapes.
The aim of this project is to construct computational models to describe the collective behaviour of self-propelling particles observed in nature.
All tuition fees are included (capped at UK/EU fee level)
