We are always interested in talented PhD students or Postdocs
who want to join our group. Our work is interdisciplinary and so we
welcome people with backgrounds in theoretical physics, theoretical
chemistry, applied mathematics, engineering, and biology.
Familiarity with computer simulations and theoretical techniques of
statistical mechanics is important. Please contact Ard Louis
by email if you are interested.
Oxford is a beautiful city, see e.g. these photos ,
or this pictoral depiction of student life.
Please see our Research Interests
page for a description of the topics that we currently work on in our group.
Joining as a DPhil student
You are welcome to email me if you are interested in applying.
Oxford Theoretical Physics runs its DPhil applications jointly,
see this page for some more details.
The main deadline is in early January for a start the following October.
I can also supervise students through some of the interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Programmes
run at the University, as well as students
on the Oxford-IBM sponsored Computational Discovery Programme.
Joining as a postdoc
- There are several Leverhulme-Peierls Fellowships available in the Rudolph Peierls Centre. Deadline 18 October 2021.
This competition will run annually.
Other potential funding options
Note that funding for postdocs changes rapidly, so the list above is certainly incomplete and outdatedy.
