This is a unique opportunity for an enthusiastic and self-driven engineer to join a vibrant multi-disciplinary team comprised of experts in the areas of: aerospace design, applied aerodynamics, flight dynamics and control, aerospace structures, avionics and air traffic management.
The PhD candidate will be encouraged to further develop their analytical and computational skills, work closely with the team members, and submit the research results for publication in the academic literature. An original contribution to knowledge in the field is expected. After three years of study the successful candidates will be well-prepared for a rewarding industrial or academic career.
You must have at least a 2:1 Honours degree or international equivalent, in aeronautical (aerospace) or mechanical engineering, mathematics, or related subject. In addition, MEng or international equivalent will be an advantage.
The candidates will be selected on the basis of their qualifications, experience, including publications and/or project work, the quality of their proposed PhD research project and its relevance to the Aeronautics Centre’s research areas*.
* The topic may be subject to alignment with existing projects after discussion with the supervisors
A bursary of up to £20,000 p.a. (tax-free) plus fees* for three years. This will be reviewed annually and renewed, subject to satisfactory progress.
