We have 46 flight PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Unmanned aerial vehicle thrust optimization with ducted propeller in various flight modes

A clear resurgence in ducted fan research in recent years can be noticed due to the growing interest in UAV/MAV (Unmanned/Micro Aerial Vehicle), PAV (Personal Aerial Vehicle) and electric propulsion. Read more

Flight mechanics and stability in birds during extreme manoeuvres of take-off and landing

During take-off birds accelerate primarily through from the ground reaction force, with aerodynamics playing a lesser role. In landing things are quite different; birds use mainly aerodynamic drag on the wings to decelerate, with the legs bringing them finally to rest after touchdown. Read more

Adaptive sensor fusion for optimised 3D sensing

Single-photon avalanche diodes (SPAD) enable the detection and timing of individual photons of light and have become a key technology in applications such as automotive LIDAR and biomedical imaging. Read more

High-speed intake aerodynamics

PhD Supervisor: Neil Sandham. Project description. You will join a group of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers using high performance computing to advance understanding of high-speed aerodynamics, relevant to next generation supersonic and hypersonic flight vehicles. Read more

Modelling and simulation of fluid-structure interaction problems with variable flexibility

Would you like to continue your academic journey with a PhD in Aerospace Engineering? A 3.5-year fully funded PhD studentship for UK home students and EU students with settled status is available in the group of Dr. Read more

Transition to turbulence in hypersonic flow applications

Supervisory Team.   Neil Sandham. Project description. You will join a group of PhD students and post-doctoral researchers using high performance computing to advance understanding of high speed aerodynamics. Read more

EPSRC DTP - Exploring low temperature physical properties of materials

The physical properties of solids are vital to understanding many physical phenomena. Elastic properties govern behaviours from the propagation of phonons to the dynamics of phase transitions. Read more

Computational Fluid-Structure Interaction with Turbulent and Multiphase flows

Fluid-structure interaction (FSI) problems involving turbulent and multiphase flows and flexible structures find numerous applications in Science and Engineering, e.g., aeroelasticity of aircraft wings and wind turbine blades, wave-structure interactions of offshore structures, flexible wave energy converters, floating solar farms, and flight of birds and insects. Read more

Distribution, function, and modulation of sodium and calcium channels in the neuro-cardiac junction

PhD Studentship in “Functional nano-imaging of neuro-cardiac junctions”. 3-year NHLI-funded PhD post. Applications are invited for a 3-year PhD studentship starting on October 2024 from candidates with a Master’s degree (Merit and above) in Biology or a related discipline. Read more

Virtually the same? Examining perception and learning in immersive VR. Public Health & Sport Science PhD Studentship (QUEX Institute Funded)

The QUEX Institute studentships are available for January 2024 entry. This prestigious programme provides full tuition fees, stipend of £19,237 p.a, travel funds of up to £15,000, and RTSG of £10,715 over the life of the studentship. Read more

Constraints and causes of brain evolution in birds

Birds differ from their non-avian dinosaur relatives in many respects. One key feature that evolved as birds acquired powered flight and began to diversify is a relatively large brain. Read more
