  Use of Machine Learning for Helicopter Ship Operational Research
  Prof M White, Prof I Owen
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flight Science and Technology (FS&T) research group at the University of Liverpool are international leaders in the use of flight simulation to support aircraft/ship and helicopter/ship clearance operations.
  Probing organic composition of the atmosphere with Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof H Coe, Dr J Allan, Prof G McFiggans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a huge number of organic compounds present in the atmosphere. They are emitted from a wide range of sources that are both natural and man-made.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Viscoelastic Damping of Vibrations that Occur in Space Flight
  Dr A Viquerat
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During flight vibrations up to 2000 Hz may be experienced. These vibrations can affect the behaviour of sensitive components and potentially the overall flight characteristics of the system.
  Flocking dynamics in birds : the role of personality and experience
  Dr S Portugal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many birds travel in flocks comprising many individuals. During flights, decisions have to be made about who leads and follows, and who is positioned where in the flock.
  Robot design and construction of jumping-take off unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) for use in precision agriculture
  Dr E Frasnelli
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to address two research challenges. (1) an engineering challenge, with respect to design of energy-efficient biologically-inspired flying robots; and (2) an application challenge, with respect to high-precision sensing for agricultural settings.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Advanced Deployable Structures for Space Flight
  Dr A Viquerat
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The objective of this project is to produce a lightweight, stowable memory-material for deployment in vacuum (i.e. space) to form a general “rigid” composite structure.
  Integrated Sense and Avoid Algorithm for the Operation of Multiple UAS PhD

  Future Rotorcraft Human Machine Interface
  Prof M White, Prof I Owen
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flight Science and Technology research group at the University of Liverpool has established itself as a leading academic institute in flight simulation research.
  Aerospace optical sensors (GE Aviation)
  Research Group: Photonic Systems Circuits & Sensors
  Dr C Holmes
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christopher Holmes, Prof Ling Wang. Project description. Sensors are crucial components for flight. In addition to providing information to the flight crew, they are increasingly providing information for Artificial Intelligence systems, in order to predict and thus avoid faults.
  Simulation of large-amplitude gust interaction with rigid wings
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr A Da Ronch
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Andrea Da Ronch. Project description. This is a unique opportunity for an enthusiastic and self-driven student to join a vibrant team with a well-proved expertise in nonlinear computational aeroelasticity and aerodynamics.
