Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Department of Mathematics at University of Manchester funded by EPSRC Industrial CASE and IBM Research UK.
  Effective models for function-structure relationship in complex biological media
  Dr I Chernyaysky, Prof O Jensen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A complex multiscale relationship between the structure and function is common in many human organs (such as the lung, liver and placenta), and many diseases are associated with an imbalance in the relationship.
  Fast and Reliable Algorithms for High-Performance Numerical Linear Algebra
  Prof N. J. Higham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project focuses on developing a new generation of numerical linear algebra algorithms that exploit current and future computers.
  Mathematical analysis of acoustic wave scattering in finite metamaterials.
  Dr A Kisil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns analytical methods of wave scattering problems in metamaterials with edges. Research work on the project will involve new mathematical analysis of the wave propagation problems and implementation of the developed analytical methods.
  Multi-Scale Modelling of Composite Materials
  Prof W J Parnell, Dr P Carbone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Accurate modelling of the mechanical behaviour of elastomeric materials including microscale filler particles represents a challenge in terms of the range of length scales involved.
