Ph.D. scholarships in the structure and dynamics of Matter

Ph.D. scholarship in theoretical and computational physics

Ph.D. scholarship in experimental physics

Application deadline: August 1, 2018

From September 1 or soon thereafter we are looking for 2-3 PhD students.

Funded by the VILLUM Foundation for the period 2017-2023 and directed by Prof. Jeppe C. Dyre, Matter is an integrated part of the Glass and Time center ( at Roskilde University's Department of Science and Environment. Over the coming years the project will employ a number of Ph.D. students and postdocs.

The purpose of Matter is to determine the range of validity of the isomorph theory for the structure and dynamics of liquids and solids with "hidden scale invariance", see, e.g., J. Phys. Chem. B 118, 10007 (2014) or J. Phys.: Cond. Mat. 28, 323001 (2016).

Research at Glass and Time focuses on understanding the universal physical properties of highly viscous liquids approaching the glass transition. This problem is attacked experimentally as well as by extensive computer simulations in combination with theory; in fact close collaboration and daily interactions between theorists and experimentalists is characteristic feature of the Glass and Time group. Glass and Time consists of several Ph.D. students, postdocs, and experienced scientists. More information about the group can be found at
