Modelling electron collision and surface reactions in technological plasma

18 February 2016

A studentship is available as part of the UCL Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Modelling & Materials Science to work with UCL  spin-out company Quantemol Ltd (www.quantemol.com). The studentship will commence in September 2016. 

The project will involve theoretical studies of electron - molecule collisions using the R-matrix method and calculations of surface reactions, with an emphasis on processes important for plasmas used in the manufacturing of semiconductor devices (i.e. microchips).

The studentship is available for 4 years, which cover fees and stipend (~£17557 per annual, tax free).  Applications are welcomed from UK/EU nationals, who have been resident in the UK for at least 3 years preceding their start on the programme, or those have indefinite leave to remain in the UK. The candidates should have a good degree in physics, chemistry or a close-related discipline, and high level computer skills.
