Dr Quigley is a Reader in the Department of Physics. His research is in the area of computational condensed matter physics, particularly with regard to structure, stability and growth mechanisms of organic solids, biomaterials and low dimensional crystals.
Open postdoctoral position
Applications are open for a PDRA position within the EPSRC programme grant on Crystallisation in the Real World. The position will involve development of minimal computational models to capture non-trivial crystal nucleation behaviour within inhomogeneous and non-equilibrium environments, working closely with experimental groups to identify representative model parameters. The position will also involve development of improved models of nucleation kinetics.
The position is initially available for two years, with a possible extension to four years. Applicants should have a strong interest/background in statistical mechanics and scientific programming.
