  Effects of flexible vegetation on oscillatory flow hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal vegetation such as seagrass protects against coastal erosion by attenuating wave energy and demobilising suspended sediments.
  The effects of vegetation on wave hydrodynamics in coastal environments
  Prof T O'Donoghue, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seabeds covered with vegetation such as seagrass protect against coastal erosion due to their ability to attenuate wave energy and demobilise suspended sediments.
  Hydrodynamics of Particle-Laden Flows: aerosols
  Dr S K Dadzie, Dr A Ozel, Professor R Ocone
Application Deadline: 30 April 2021

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air quality control relies on the simulation of aerosol dynamics. This research is to develop new theoretical model and simulation tools for these particle-laden flows.
  15 PhD/Early Stage Researchers (ESR) positions available in Ecohydraulics MSCA-ITN European Training Network RIBES “River flow regulation, fish BEhaviour and Status”

Funding Type

PhD Type

The European Training Network RIBES “River flow regulation, fish BEhaviour and Status”, funded by the European Commission under the EU Horizon 2020 programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (Grant no.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Turbulence dynamics under breaking waves
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hydrodynamics and turbulence dynamics of wave breaking are important in the context of breaking wave forces on offshore and coastal structures, as well in the context of coastal sand transport in shallow water because of the impact of breaking on the near-bed turbulence and bed shear stresses, and on sediment entrainment, suspension and advection.
  Characterisation of flow around a bivalve (Pecten Maximus) shell
  Dr M Stewart, Prof V Nikora
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of studies have highlighted the ability of freshwater mussels to behave as so-called ecosystem engineers; actively modifying their local environment through mechanisms such as filtering and passively by modifying bed roughness.
  Numerical Investigation of Flow Boiling Heat Transfer in Water-Cooled Reactors
  Dr J Gomes, Dr L Akanji
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are approximately 500 nuclear power reactors in operation worldwide with capacity to produce 375 GWe, 28 reactors are under construction and a large number are in different stages of planning and designing.

  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Development of a Lift-Based Wave Energy Converter
  Dr C Frost
Application Deadline: 8 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project involves the numerical and physical modelling of a novel wave energy converter that exploits wave-induced lift forces.
