  Finite temperature superfluid turbulence flow-structure interactions via immersed boundary methods
  Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a multidisciplinary research project that combines the quantum physics of superfluid turbulence flows with advanced computational fluid dynamics for flow-structure interactions.
  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Direct numerical simulation of polymeric-fluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymers and turbulence are two of the most difficult problems in statistical physics. In the past, the study of polymeric liquids was divided in two categories.
  Foam improved oil recovery
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure.
  Sustainable paper making using foam
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the advent of 21st century electronic communications, paper remains one of the most widely utilised materials in the world.
  Coherent and incoherent attosecond x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions
  Prof D Jaroszynski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhDs are offered in an exciting and challenging research area, with a vibrant group of experimentalists and theoreticians developing and applying ultra-compact accelerators and x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions.
  Hybrid plasma wakefield acceleration
  Dr B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron-driven plasma wakefield acceleration (PWFA) allows production of electron beams with energy gains and brightness orders of magnitude larger than with state-of-the-art accelerators via the plasma photocathode (dubbed “Trojan Horse”) approach [1,2].
  Phase transitions in open quantum systems
  Dr P Kirton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing accurate simulations of quantum mechanical systems unavoidably involves taking into account coupling to the outside world.
