  Quantifying Uncertainties Associated with Source Influences on particle-laden buoyant PLUMES (QUASI-PLUMES)
  Dr A Cuthbertson, Dr YS Park
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
Understanding the environmental impacts of wastewater discharges into oceans, dredged material disposal in coastal marine waters and atmospheric emissions from industrial stacks and volcanoes, requires detailed knowledge of how the multiphase (fluid + particulate) behaviour of buoyant jets and plumes is affected by the source conditions (e.g.
  Fluid flows through porous obstacles
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round
Environmental and industrial fluid mechanics problems often involve flows through porous obstacles. Examples of practical applications include flow through atmospheric and aquatic vegetation, offshore structures, buildings exposed to flooding and arrays of turbines in tidal channels.
  Transition in rotating boundary-layer flows
  Prof S Garrett, Dr A McMullan
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
This project is across the distinct disciplines of mathematical and computational fluid mechanics and aims to provide insight into open problems in fundamental fluid physics.
  Research Studentship in Wind Farm Modelling: reducing the cost of future large wind farms through the development of new wind farm flow interaction models.
  Prof R Wilden, Dr C Vogel
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
3.5-year D.Phil studentship, available from E.ON and The University of Oxford. This studentship is a collaboration between the University of Oxford (Department of Engineering Science) and E.ON (Climate and Renewables).
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Secondary currents in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals play a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  The Energetics and Dynamics of Fluid-Structure Interaction in Blood Vessels and Industrial Hoses (WHITTAKERR19SF)
  Dr R Whittaker
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Fluid-conveying elastic-walled tubes arise in many engineering and biomechanical systems. Examples include blood flow in veins and arteries, flow in the airways, and industrial fluid transport and pumping systems.

  Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
  Dr L Lue, Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round
Engineers have traditionally used continuum equations to model processes, such as the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flow. These methods require constitutive relations that encode the properties of the fluid; these are typically determined empirically and have limited predictive capabilities.
  DEFTPORE: “Deformation Control on Flow and Transport in Soft Porous Media with a focus on miscible flows, including solute transport, dispersion, and miscible viscous fingering”
  Prof C MacMinn
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This studentship is part of the major ERC Starting Grant project DEFTPORE. “Deformation Control on Flow and Transport in Soft Porous Media”, being undertaken by the University of Oxford under the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme.
