In support of the research activities of the recently launched EPSRC funded Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing Hub, Rolls-Royce is offering a PhD scholarship to undertake a programme of research allied to the core research programme of the Hub.

Title: Metallic Rotor Containment Sleeves for Permanent Magnet Machines

This project will address the challenges of modelling, designing and manufacturing high strength metallic sleeves for high-speed and high power density electrical machines. The project will encompass design of the stator and rotor to minimise the sleeve losses, evaluation of different candidate sleeve materials, manufacturing technology development and assessment and the manufacture of an experimental demonstrator machine. This project would suit candidates with a background in electrical or electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, physics or mathematics. Studies will be based predominantly in Sheffield with an opportunity to spend periods at Rolls-Royce and The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) at The University of Strathclyde. The studentship covers Home tuition fees and stipend of £15,009 per annum. It is anticipated that this studentship will commence in September 2019, but there may be some degree of flexibility in start dates.
