EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems - HetSys

HetSys CDT

HetSys is an entirely new EPSRC-supported Centre for Doctoral Training. It is recruiting enthusiastic students (first intake October 2019) from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. By developing these skills HetSys 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.

HetSys is built around a closely knit, highly collaborative team of academics from five science departments at Warwick with a strong track record in leading large projects. With its project partners HetSys will develop 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. HetSys builds on Warwick’s Centre for Scientific Computing (CSC) and the Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling (WCPM).

Asst Prof in Computational Materials Modelling joint between Physics and Engineering at Warwick

The Department of Physics and the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick are seeking an exceptional individual to contribute to the research and educational goals of the Theoretical Physics Group and Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling (WCPM), and to play an active role in support of the new EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems (HetSys) at Warwick. At Warwick, Assistant Professor is a tenure track position leading to appointment as Associate Professor after successful completion of probation.

HetSys CDT Launched!

EPSRC have announced funding for a Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems at the University of Warwick. HetSys involves academics from the departments of Physics, Engineering, Chemistry and Mathematics and the Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and is now recruiting its first cohort of students to start in October 2019. The University of Warwick has issused a press release.

First HetSys PhD Projects Announced for Oct 2019 start

The first batch of HetSys PhD projects for an October 2019 start have been announced and are now open for applications. The computional modelling and simulation projects span a range of application themes including novel electronic devices, high performance alloys and smart nanofluidic interfaces.
