The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Modelling of Heterogeneous Systems (HetSys) training programme is designed to enable students to become high-quality computational scientists who are comfortable working in interdisciplinary environments, have excellent communication skills, and are well prepared for a wide range of future careers in areas where there is demonstrable need.
The four-year training programme consists of PhD project and integrated taught modules, leading to the award of a postgraduate diploma.
We are looking for enthusiastic students from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. We require at least a 2(i) honours degree at BSc or an integrated masters degree (e.g. MPhys, MChem, MSci, MEng etc.) in a physical sciences, mathematics or engineering discipline.
Scale effects on reactive turbulent mixing
Spatial and temporal fluctuations in fluid behaviour control mixing and reaction processes. Observations show that velocity fluctuations are correlated with mixing and reaction rates, and degree of these correlations vary across the scale. These provide compelling evidence that the key statistics of reaction parameters driving the transport processes are scale dependent and functions of the increments of porous media geometrical characteristics. This project aims to develop theoretical and computational frameworks to assimilate data associated with diverse variables collected at a range of scales and combine these to provide predictions of reactive solute dynamics and quantify associated uncertainties across the scales. The candidate will benefit from HetSys CDT training on computational data science and geostatistical methods and will perform research in the field of reactive transport and turbulent mixing processes in porous media in collaboration with partners at Bayer A.G. (Germany).
HetSys provides funding for the four-year programme to UK students.
We expect a small number of fully funded international places to be available on a competitive basis to exceptional students of any citizenship. Applications must be submitted by 21 January 2021.

The studentships pay a stipend to cover maintenance as well as paying the university fees and research training support. The stipend is at the standard UKRI rate (for 2020/21 that is £15,285 per annum).
