Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in Air Traffic Management (ATM). This studentship is funded by NATS.
NATS is the main UK air navigation service provider.
The PhD research will build on existing work at the Centre for Transport Studies (CTS), NATS and elsewhere to study the factors that directly affect airspace capacity and develop a methodology to quantify the impact of new ATM technologies and procedures on airspace capacity.
The successful candidate will be based formally at the CTS (Imperial College London) but will be expected to spend a proportion of their research period at NATS.
The studentship comprises a bursary for three years and payment of College fees at the home/EU rate.
Applicants for the studentship should have or expect to obtain a first or good upper second class honours degree or equivalent, in a relevant aspect of engineering, physical sciences, or mathematics.
A background in ATM would be advantageous, but is not essential.
Applicants should send an up to date curriculum vitae, full contact details (including email addresses) of 2 referees (at least one of whom must be an academic) and a one page personal statement to:
Dr. Washington Y. Ochieng
Centre for Transport Studies
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
