PhD Studentship: Industrial PhD Scholarship in CFD of Acoustic Cavitation

University of Warwick - School of Engineering

Start date: By arrangement, in the period: 01/09/2017 to 31/12/2017

Project start date: 22/09/2017

Duration: 3.5 years

The project:
The University of Warwick and Waters (developer of innovative analytical science solutions;, are offering a fully-funded 3½-year PhD Scholarship in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) of acoustic cavitation.

The accurate simulation of acoustic cavitation is extremely challenging, due to the wide range of time and space scales that must be captured. The PhD will focus, first, on simulation of acoustically-driven cavitation in generic micro geometries, leading to more specific industrially-focussed research in later years. Strong industrial interaction is to be expected throughout the PhD (potentially including secondments to the company). Your academic supervisors in the School of Engineering will be Professor Duncan Lockerby and Dr Yongmann Chung.

Environment: Warwick is always in the top ten of all UK League tables and in the latest research assessment (REF2014), over 90% of the research in Engineering and Mathematics was rated as world leading or internationally excellent. You will be integrated into our large (10+) interdisciplinary research group, existing within an extensive UK network (see, and will benefit from strong links with the Fluid Dynamics Research Centre and Centre for Scientific Computing. Your training will give you the opportunity to become a leader in either academia or industry.

Eligibility: UK or EU candidates with a 1st or 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in applied maths, computer science, engineering science, physics, or a related subject with a strong mathematical content.

Funding: The annual stipend will be £14,553 (tax free), for 3½ years, with all university fees paid. This scholarship is for EU/UK students only.

How to Apply
