Nanoscale Fluid Dynamics
School of Engineering, University of Warwick
Application deadline: open, subject to the position being filled
Start date: 8th January 2018
Duration: 3 years
The University of Warwick is offering a fully-funded 3 year PhD Scholarship in nanoscale fluid dynamics. The broad aims are 1) to discover, explore and understand new flow phenomena at the nanoscale, and 2) develop and implement new mathematical models (beyond Navier-Stokes) that capture the relevant molecular-scale physics, allowing predictive simulations to be performed.
A range of projects are available: [see http://alturl.com/bwj5e for more details]
This prestigious opportunity is funded by a flagship £3.4M EPSRC Programme Grant awarded to Professor Duncan Lockerby (Engineering) and Dr James Sprittles (Maths) at the University of Warwick, who will be your co-supervisors.
Eligibility: UK or EU candidates with a 1st or 2.1 UK Honours degree or equivalent with a background in applied mathematics, physics, and physical biology. Applicants with a background in: information theory, fluid dynamics, or SPDEs are deemed advantageous. Note: To be eligible a student must have; settled status in the UK, meaning there are no restrictions on how long you can stay, been 'ordinarily resident' in the UK for three years prior to the start of the studentship grant. This means you must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences). UK and EU students may have been resident for the purpose of full-time education.
Funding: The annual stipend will be £14,254 (tax free), for 3 years, with all university fees paid. The scholarships are for EU/UK students only.
