  Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.
  Dr M Jones, Dr G Hunter, Dr M Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.
  Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  The Migration of Droplets in Multi-Material Problems and Dispersed Multiphase Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The relevance of droplet dynamics and related non-equilibrium phenomena in several industrial applications and manufacturing techniques calls for new advanced studies using the tools of thermodynamics and computational fluid dynamics.
  NERC GW4+ DTP PhD studentship: Dynamics of the Antarctic Atmosphere – From the Surface to the Edge of Space
  Prof N J Mitchell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Numerical and analytical studies of early universe Einstein-Euler-scalar field models
  Dr F Beyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The point of this project is to study the Einstein’ equation (as a model of gravity) coupled to the Euler equations (as a model of cosmological matter) and the scalar field equations (as a model of the “inflaton” driving “inflation”) in the cosmological setting close to a big bang singularity.
  Fluid Dynamic Instabilities and Solid Particle Transport in Thermal Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With this Ph.D.
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Numerical simulations of drop motion in open microfluidics (Advert Reference: SF18/MPEE/SEMPREBON)
  Dr C Semprebon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a drop is placed on a solid substrate, surface defects induce pinning of the contact line and the ubiquitous phenomenon of contact angle hysteresis.
  One Belt and One Road Initiative
  Dr J Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One Belt and One Road "is not an entity or a mechanism”. Rather, it is a concept and initiative of cooperative development that relies on the existing dual multilateral mechanism between Asia, Europe, non-mainland China, neighbouring oceans, and the existing platform for regional cooperation.
  Finite noncommutative Riemannian geometries
  Research Group: Geometry and Analysis
  Prof S Majid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Mathematical Sciences of Queen Mary University of London invite applications for a PhD project commencing either in September 2019 for students seeking funding, or at any point in the academic year for self-funded students.
