CCP5 (Computational Collaboration Project 5 - simulation of condensed matter ( wishes to strengthen links between the CCP5 community by supporting a number of student bursaries for collaborative summerprojects. The scheme provides funds for a student, with UK academic supervisor support, to either
1.     Work with industry or
2.     Work with a European academic group or
3.     To provide teaching material for use within the undergraduate teaching environment (e.g., a molecular modelling course). The teaching material must use CCP5 software (e.g. DL_POLY, DL_MONTE, DL_MESO) or
4.     To provide outreach material using computer simulation with CCP5 software.

For options 3 and 4, Daresbury Laboratory staff will act as sponsors of the project and any project involving DL staff should be discussed with them prior to submission.

These projects can last for up to three months and are ideally for students just about to start a Ph.D. The application must be received from a UK academic (i.e. not a student, member of CCP5). We envisage that applications will request  £200-£250 per week, to include travel as appropriate. The maximum sum available per busary is £3000,

NB If successful you are required to write a short report for CCP5 and for software projects the course material must be given to CCP5 so that it can be made available to the whole community via our web pages.

If interested please refer to for the application procedure which requires emailing a brief outline of the project (no more than one page), indicating the costs and the potential impact to [email protected]

The closing date for applications is midnight 1st April 2018. The CCP5 executive committee will decide soon thereafter which are funded based on the potential value to the CCP5 community and/or the industrial company(academic group) as well as the quality of the research and funds available.
