Invenia-sponsored PhD Scholarship: Optimising power grids and chemical reactions with graph neural networks.

Collaborations and Supervisions /
Applications are now open for a fully-funded PhD project at the Warwick EPSRC Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT) in the Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems program (HetSys) starting in the 2022-23 academic year. The project, ‘Optimising power grids and chemical reactions with graph neural networks’, will be co-supervised by Albert Bartok-Partay and Reinhard J. Maurer (University of Warwick), and Letif Mones (Invenia Labs). The aim of this project is to explore the wider applicability of graph neural networks, to answer questions such as "How does power flow in an electrical grid?" and "How do atoms arrange in space to form molecules and materials?". Results of this work will be useful in optimising electricity grid operations and schedules as well as in understanding chemical transitions between different molecules.


This studentship is open to candidates with at least a 2.i honours degree at BSc level, or an integrated masters degree (e.g. MPhys, MChem, MSci, MEng etc.) in a physical sciences, mathematics or engineering discipline.
