Study

Our Centre is involved with the Aerodynamic and Environmental Flow PhD course.

Studentships

Numerical investigation of the flow and structural deflections in advanced adaptable seals that operate in harsh environments within rotating machinery

Funding information:
Annual stipend (£15,609 per annum in 2021-22) and UK fees covered.

SCENARIO: the effect of non-neutral winds on wind power aerodynamics

Funding information:
This research project is one of a number of projects at this institution. It is in competition for funding with one or more of these projects. Usually the project which receives the best applicant will be awarded the funding.This project is potentially funded by the Scenario NERC Doctoral Training Partnership, subject to a competition to identify the strongest applicants. Due to UKRI rules, the DTP can only fund a very limited number of international students. We will only consider applications from international students with an outstanding academic background placing them in the top 10% of their cohort.This studentship covers both fees and stipend – a tax-free maintenance grant which was £15,609 per year in 2021-22. You will also receive a Research Training and Support budget to cover costs such as conferences, workshops and equipment.

What our students say

Expert support

The Doctoral College supports the academic and professional development of postgraduate researchers to ensure our world-leading research continues to grow. There is also an extensive Researcher Development Programme run at university level.

Student using wind tunnel

Facilities

We have numerous wind tunnels including a meteorological wind tunnel and EnFlo tunnel which is one of few in the world which allow experiments to be carried out in controlled conditions simulating the Earth's atmosphere.
