School of Engineering Sciences

University of Southampton

A PhD studentship is now available within the Computational Engineering & Design Research Group, School of Engineering Sciences (SES), which will fully cover University tuition fees (at EU/UK level**) and provide a tax-free bursary of £12,300 per year, rising annually in line with the UK Government (EPSRC) recommended rate, for a three-year duration.

Further financial support for deserving international students is available.

The PhD student will work in the area of uncertainty quantification and robust design of gas turbine components.

The primary focus of the work will be on constructing parametric CAD models to represent geometric variability using measurement data and developing advanced numerical techniques to quantify the resulting variability in performance.

The analysis tools developed will be applied to optimize performance robustness in the presence of uncertainty.

The nature of the work is primarily computational and analytical. Good programming skills are essential.

The student will be required to work with a group of post-doctoral research fellows in a coordinated fashion.

SES is a top 5 rated research school with an international reputation.

The successful candidate will work with a group of highly motivated, first class research students in the areas of stochastic mechanics and aerospace design optimization.

The School is a diverse community which is committed to creating an inclusive working and learning environment in which all individuals are equally treated and valued, and can achieve their potential.

The School considers all studentship applications in relation to academic criteria and regardless of the individual's race, gender, or belief.

Entry requirements: The studentship is available to candidates with the equivalent of a first class or upper second class degree in a relevant discipline, e.g. Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Statistics, Mathematics or a related quantitative discipline.

The studentship is at the standard EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) rate, commencing as soon as possible.
