Project title: Advanced Composites PhD - supported by Rolls Royce
A fully funded PhD studentship, supported by Rolls-Royce and the EPSRC, is available for study at the University of Bristol on the Advanced Composites PhD Programme. We are looking to recruit a student with an interest in structural applications of composites, novel material development and characterisation, manufacturing advances and simulation, development of novel analysis methods for failure prediction. The exact project definition will be confirmed during the recruitment process.
The four-year Advanced Composites PhD programme is based in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Composites Science, Engineering and Manufacturing (CoSEM CDT). It comprises a one-year innovative taught component and a three-year research project (as specified above). The taught component will fast-track graduates with science and mathematics backgrounds to acquire core engineering skills, while engineering graduates will broaden their scientific knowledge before specialising in industrial applications.
The three-year research project will be jointly supervised by the academic and industrial supervisors.
For more information on the programme structure and the opportunities available to you on this degree please visit the CoSEM CDT website.
