Applications for 2022-23 are now open!

We are pleased to announce that applications for studentships starting 2022-23 are now open!

We are looking for enthusiastic students from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. 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.

We have a range of exciting projects from across the three HetSys research themes. Our Centre for Doctoral Training has several funded scholarships available, which cover full fees and stipend payable at current UK Research Council rates along with a generous research training support budget.

The Computational Toolkit: Student Lead Seminar Series - Call for Participants

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems (HetSys) is delighted to support an excellent initiative from Idil Ismail (3rd year PhD student) and some of her colleagues.

The group are organising a HetSys student-led seminar series throughout terms 2 and 3 of this academic year. This will involve students giving short talks on key computational skills used in everyday research to create a so-called "computational toolkit" of resources and tutorials, aimed at helping those just beginning in the field, and offering a more practical introduction to computational science as a whole.

The aim of this seminar series will be to share the tools and methods they have acquired through their training and perhaps present an opportunity to gain some informal teaching experience.

The group wants to keep it really simple and introductory and give these talks in a casual tutorial style. They also want to appeal to as many levels as possible, so they will want to cover topics relevant to someone who’s just taking an interest in computational science as a whole, or a programming tool, but then also, maybe give talks on more complex tools that only postgraduate students are likely to use. All talks will be delivered via Youtube Live.

Below is a link to a spreadsheet of suggested topics, but they would ideally like students to suggest their own topic, as long as it's related to computational science/ maths.

For further information, and if you would like to get involved please contact Idil via
