22 November 2018 Fully funded PhD position on battery materials modelling available for EU and UK applicants

1 August 2018 Gabriel Constantinescu, who was until recently a PhD student in the TCM Group at the University of Cambridge, has won the IOP Computational Physics Group Prize for his thesis, which involves method development within ONETEP and applications of ONETEP to 2D materials systems. Gabriel's thesis, "Large-scale density functional theory study of van-der-Waals heterostructures", is available on the Cambridge repository website. An article by Gabriel will appear in the forthcoming IOP Computational Physics Group newsletter.

A new EPSRC-funded project led by Nicholas Hine, along with Chris Skylaris, Jacek Dziedzic, Peter Haynes and Arash Mostofi is about to get underway! "Excitations in Complex Environments: Multiphysics embedding for large scale electronic structure" is the CSE Flagship project for the CCP9 Consortium.

As part of this project, we are looking to hire two new Postdoctoral Research Associates. The first position, at University of Warwick, will be to work on the development of methods for excited state forces, and consequently geometry optimisation and molecular dynamics. Click here to apply. The second position, at Imperial College London, will be to work on embedding methods for excited state calculations. Go to this page, select “Job Search” and enter the job reference no EN20170130LE to apply. Joint applications for both positions are encouraged.

Three new pieces of exciting work have recently been published with the help of calculations using ONETEP. The 'Focus' pages have been updated to describe them:

  • The Nanostructures and Defects page now describes fascinating work by David O'Regan and co-workers, published in Nature Materials, on a new type of quantum dot that self-assembles in core-shell GaAs/AlGaAs nanowires, and involving ONETEP simulations of up to 12168 atoms!
  • The Biomolecular simulations page now describes Cedric Weber's exciting recent Physical Review Letters paper describing the application of ONETEP Dynamical Mean Field Theory calculations to the heme molecule, investigating its binding to CO and O2.
  • The Methodological Advances page now describes Louis Lee's work on Natural Bond Orbital analysis, which made it onto the front cover of J. Comp. Chem!
