TUSAIL - 15 PhD positions in modelling of industrial particle systems

TUSAIL - 15 PhD positions in modelling of industrial particle systems

The European Training Network TUSAIL (Training in Upscaling particle Systems: Advancing Industry across Length-scales) invites applications for 15 PhD positions. The duration of the appointment is 36 months, full-time employment contract.

TUSAIL is an EU/ Horizon 2020 Initial Training Network which comprises 16 academic and industrial partners, led by the University of Edinburgh. It will train 15 early-career researchers to meet industry’s requirements for highly skilled staff in the multi-disciplinary field of upscaling industrial particle processes. The reliable, validated simulation methodologies and tools developed in TUSAIL will be disseminated to industry, enabling quantitative predictions of large industrial processes which will be of value for design, operation, and optimisation.

We are now recruiting researchers for the following 15 specific PhD projects which will begin around September 2021. If you are interested in doing a PhD with us, we invite you to take a look at the project descriptions and application procedure.
