Dr Sara Sangtarash

PhD studentship in Quantum Transport through Graphene Nanoribbons

Qualification: Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering (PhD)

Start date: 1st April 2024

Funding for: 3.5 years, as part of the Horizon Europe EIC Pathfinder open grant ATYPQUAL

Supervisor: Dr Sara Sangtarash and Professor Hatef Sadeghi

Project Description:

The aim of the project is to exploit the quantum transport properties of graphene nanoribbons for nanoelectronic applications. Visit for more details. The candidate will receive broad training in computational materials modelling and gain experience with cutting-edge quantum transport simulation methods, conduct a world-class research project with high publication potential be involved in the ATYPQUAL project and collaborate with internationally leading experimental groups in the EU.


This fully funded scholarship will cover the tuition fees at the UK/Home rate £4,712, plus a stipend of £18,622 per annum for 3.5 years of full-time study and research training support. This PhD studentship is a part of Horizon Europe EIC Pathfinder open grant ATYPQUAL.


Due to the scholarship rules, this is for UK students only with a first-class or 2.1 honours degree at BSc or MSc in physical science or engineering disciplines and a strong interest in computational materials modelling. Experience with molecular scale simulation is desirable but not essential.

How to apply:

Applicants should prepare a cover letter outlining motivation and suitability for this project, and a full CV that includes your BSc or MSc with GPA, a list of all publications and contact details of two referees to opens in a new window.

If you are successful at the interview, you will be invited to submit a formal application and fulfil the entry requirements set by the University of Warwick.
