PhD in Computational Sciences at The Cyprus Institute

PhD in Computational Sciences (Modelling and Simulation for Engineering Applications)

The Modelling and Simulation for Engineering Applications (SimEA) WIDENING Horizon 2020 project is accepting applications for the academic year 2020-2021. SimEA offers 3 fully-funded PhD studentships to undertake research projects at the interface of materials science, data analytics, and engineering. It entails the modelling and simulation of complex systems in condensed matter, through the development of modern tools and methodologies, from high-performance computing, multi-scale modelling, data science, and artificial intelligence. All research projects concern systems/materials of great scientific and technological interest, such as nanocomposites, polymers, graphene-based nanostructured materials, proteins and biomolecular systems.

The students will become members of the interdisciplinary team of the ERA Chair holder, Prof. Vangelis Harmandaris, and will also have opportunities to participate in research and innovation activities undertaken with the industrial sector.

The PhD program is designed to educate future researchers in mathematical modeling, computational methods, and data analytics methodologies, needed to solve complex scientific and engineering problems, as well as in the management, mining, and visualization of complex data sets. Students will be equipped with the necessary competencies and skills to become equally adept to assume roles in academic and industrial settings.

For more information about this position see:


Applications are welcome from candidates worldwide with a keen interest in simulation and data science, and with a relevant scientific background, e.g. in mathematics, physics, chemistry, engineering, and computer science. Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or be in their final year of a Master’s degree program.

The selected fellows will be admitted to The Cyprus Institute and will receive a PhD degree upon successful completion of their program of studies.

Financial Support

Each studentship includes the tuition fees, a monthly stipend, and a generous travel budget for conferences and training events. This project has received funding from the European Union’ s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under grant agreement No. 810660.
