The Department of Physics is delighted to host two highly-prestigious UKRI Future Leaders Fellows.
Heather Cegla will join the Astronomy and Astrophysics group working on the project "A Pathway to the Confirmation and Characterisation of Habitable Alien Worlds", and Benjamin Richards will join EPP to work on the "Search for diffuse supernova background in Gd based water Cherenkov experiments".
The University has signed an agreement with Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU) to establish a new framework that enables all interested departments to offer a joint PhD programme.
Physics is the first department to set up a Joint PhD programme under this agreement, organised by John Hanna.
Part of a new £20 million investment by EPSRC in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) equipment across UK institutions, the £8M, 1GHz NMR instrument at Warwick will provide new structural and dynamic information in chemistry, materials science and biology. It will add to our already significant NMR capabilities that include the 850MHz high-field solid-state NMR National Research Facility, which has been serving a broad academic and industrial user-base since 2010.
Professor Marin Alexe has been awarded grants for two research projects in the field of ferroelectricity – which may lead to breakthroughs in nanotechnology, and memory storage in everyday devices.
FINAL REMINDER: we all, staff and RCUK-funded PhD students (normally in their third year of study), have until Thursday, March 16th, 2017 (inclusive) to complete our “researchfish” submissions. Please make sure that you have indeed “submitted”. Your reward should be an email similar to the one I received below. So, if in doubt whether you have indeed been successful in finding the “submit” button on researchfish, you can also search for “successfully submitted the award” among your received emails (please make sure you search the 2017 one, not last years).
The Warwick Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) has invited two leading Chinese professors with a theoretical and computational physics background to spend 1 week at the IAS in collaboration with the Warwick Centre for Scientific Computing, the GRP Materials (Multiscale Modelling) and the Department of Physics. Profs. Lin and Guan are senior professors in the Chinese academic environment. Both have returned from outside mainland China in the last 5 years to take up prestigious positions.
