Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to conduct exciting new experimental research on single and two-phase flows in rotating machines.

 

The successful candidate will join the University of Nottingham’s Gas Turbines and Transmissions Research Centre (G2TRC) which works on a range of projects the majority of which are for the Rolls Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Gas Turbine Transmission Systems. The G2TRC comprises a team of around 50 researchers, academics, engineers, technicians and administrators. This well-established research group has taken part in a number of EU and TSB/IUK funded research programs.

 

The G2TRC is conducting exciting and leading research supporting the formulation of two-phase flow strategies for engine transmission systems, gear boxes, engine core and accessories. The successful candidates will learn a range of state-of-the-art techniques, including advanced optical methods to make vital measurements in an existing test facility. These measurements will be used to inform CFD turbulence model development. 

 

We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated person who meets the academic requirements for enrolment for PhD research at the University of Nottingham. Ideally you will have a 1st class or good 2:1 honours degree in a relevant engineering or related subject, and an enquiring and rigorous approach to research together with a strong intellect and disciplined work habits. A keen interest in experimental multiphase flow applications is essential and the ability to work well in a team, flexibility and communication skills are all essential skills for the successful candidate.

 

The PhD studentship will cover fees and stipend of £16,800 p.a. for 3.5 years. Due to funding restrictions this studentship is only available to UK and EU citizens. Candidates should be able to start on or before 1st October 2019.

 

Due to the nature of this post, all offers of a studentship will be subject to the appropriate level of security clearance and an independent verification of unspent convictions obtained by means of a Basic Disclosure Certificate obtained from Disclosure Scotland, or an overseas police check.

 

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Dr David Hann (David.Hann@nottingham.ac.uk).

 

Applications with a CV, a brief statement of your research interests, and the names and email addresses of two referees should be sent to Dr David Hann: david.hann@nottingham.ac.uk
