PhD Studentship in Computational Modelling for Sustainable Aviation

Imperial College London - Brahmal Vasudevan Institute for Sustainable Aviation

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: London
Funding amount: £20,622
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 24th January 2024
Closes: 4th March 2024
Reference: AE0044
 

Applications are invited for a Ph.D. studentship at the Brahmal Institute, a collaborative research centre at Imperial College enabling blue-sky thinking to address adverse environmental impacts of aviation. The project is cross-disciplinary and the successful candidate will collaborate with leading researchers within Imperial. 

A key challenge of achieving sustainable aviation is the high level of uncertainty in the environmental impacts arising from non-CO2 emissions, including emissions of nitrogen oxides and the formation of contrails. This studentship is aimed at improving our understanding of these impacts, potentially including effects on the climate, air quality, the ozone layer, or other environmental outcomes. 

The project will involve the development and application of novel computational techniques to advance our understanding, evaluating the accuracy of these advances against observations and designing new solutions to these problems. Whilst the specific direction of the research is flexible depending on the candidate’s interests, experience and/or genuine interest in computational models/numerical simulation will be a benefit as the project will involve development of complex numerical simulation codes. 

Applications are invited from candidates with (or who are expected to gain) a first-class honours degree or equivalent in a suitable field such as engineering, computer science, physics, or atmospheric science. 

Funding

This studentship is available to students eligible for home fees. Information on fee status can be found at https://www.imperial.ac.uk/study/pg/fees-and-funding/tuition-fees/fee-status/
