A fully-funded PhD Scholarship for 3½ years is available to develop Nanoscale Interfacial Fluid Dynamics modelling capabilities. Funded within a flagship £3.4M EPSRC Programme Grant awarded to Prof Duncan Lockerby and Dr James Sprittles (University of Warwick), Prof David Emerson (Daresbury Laboratory) and Prof Jason Reese (University of Edinburgh), the successful applicant will join our collaborative network of researchers designing next-generation nano-engineered flow technologies.
● creating a new framework for robust, efficient, and accurate multiscale multiphysics simulation of interface-driven nano-engineered flows;
During this PhD you will contribute to these research objectives through:
● developing novel fundamental theory in fluid dynamics and/or molecular dynamics;
Research and Training
● collaborating with a large interdisciplinary network of researchers;
A short introductory video is available at youtu.be/OKjRxeFVSTY

The research is rewarding and challenging, so applicants should have (or be close to obtaining) a 1st or 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in applied maths, computer science, engineering science, physics, or a related subject with a strong mathematical content. Experience of high-level programming languages, particularly C++, and/or the OpenFOAM software would be an advantage. The successful applicant will be located at Daresbury Laboratory, in the heart of the Cheshire countryside, working under the leadership of Prof David Emerson.
