The Committee of the Institute of Physics Computational Physics Group welcomes applications for its annual thesis prize. The prize is awarded to the author of the PhD thesis that, in the opinion of the Committee, contributes most strongly to the advancement of computational physics. Runner-up prizes may also be awarded. Prize winners will be invited to write a feature article in the Computational Physics Group newsletter.
Entry is open to all students from an institution in the UK or Ireland, whose PhD examination has taken place since 1st January 2017 and up to the submission deadline of 30th April 2018, and who did not apply for the CPG Thesis Prize in the previous year.
Candidates are asked to note that if a similar thesis prize is offered by another IOP group (such as the Theory of Condensed Matter group), the Committee intends to liaise with that group so that both prizes will not be awarded to the same applicant.
- A four page (A4) abstract
- A one page (A4) citation from the PhD supervisor, including confirmation of the date of PhD examination, that the student passed and whether the thesis has also been submitted to another IOP group for a PhD thesis prize
- A one page (A4) confidential report from the external thesis examiner
Entries (PDF documents preferred) should be submitted by email, with “IOP CPG Thesis Prize” as the subject header, to Dr Arash Mostofi (firstname.lastname@example.org). Any queries should also be directed to Dr Arash Mostofi.
