Modelling the structures, stabilities, properties and chemistry of nitrocellulose

Publication date:

A 3-year PhD studentship is available in the UCL Chemistry Department to work with Professor Nora de Leeuw and project partners AWE on a computer simulation project to gain atomic-level insight into the physico-chemical properties of the complex energetic polymer nitrocellulose. The project will focus in particular on the chemical reactions involved in the initial polymerisation of the monomeric structure, the (partial) nitration of the cellulose, and the degradation processes. The project will require the application of both electronic structure techniques and classical molecular dynamics simulations to model the reaction pathways and mechanisms as well as the 3-dimensional material.

A 3.5-year PhD Studentship in Self-assemble Multifunctional Nanomotors for Intelligent Active Delivery of Drugs

Publication date:

Supervisors: Dr. Tung Chun Lee Department of Chemistry, UCL, Dr. Xian Jun Loh (A*STAR IMRE, Singapore)

A 3-year PhD Studentship in Statistical Regularisation

Publication date:

Start Date: September 2015

Applications are invited for a PhD funding opportunity offered jointly by the Faculty of Mathematical and Physical Sciences, UCL and the Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (JAIST). The studentship will commence in September 2015 and is based both at JAIST and the UCL Department of Statistical Science.
