10-12 Fully funded PhD Positions within HetSys Centre for Doctoral Training at Warwick for October 2020 start

HetSys is a new EPSRC-supported Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) which trains people to challenge current state-of-the-art in computational modelling of heterogeneous, real-world systems across a range of research themes such as nanoscale devices, new catalysts, superalloys, smart fluids, laser-plasma interactions etc.

The HetSys team are recruiting its second cohort of enthusiastic students from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems to join our new EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems at the University of Warwick, UK. Our exciting range of PhD projects can be found on our webpage.

HetSys is built around a closely knit, highly collaborative team of academics from five science departments (Physics, Engineering, Chemistry, Mathematics and the Warwick Manufacturing Group) at Warwick. With its project partners HetSys is developing talented, energetic PhD students to push boundaries in this exciting field. The students will therefore inspire new ideas, approaches and innovation and become future leaders in developing new technologies.

The next HetSys Open Day will be held on the afternoon of Wed 22nd January 2020 on campus at Warwick, registration is now open via

Full funding is available for 10-12 UK/EU candidates (who meet the required UK residency criteria). For other EU students, fee-only funding is available. In addition, one studentship per year may be offered to an exceptional student of any citizenship. Applications for this studentship close on 31 January 2020. We require at least a 2(i) honours degree at BSc or an integrated masters degree (e.g. MPhys, MChem, MSci, MEng etc.) in a physical sciences, mathematics or engineering discipline. The studentships pay a stipend to cover maintenance as well as paying the university fees and research training support. The stipend is at the standard UKRI rate (for 2019/20 that is £15,009 per annum).

Please pass this message on to potentially interested candidates. For more details of the HetSys training programme, our current PhD Projects or to register for the open day see the HetSys webpage at or contact us by email at
