This project is suitable for a student who has a first degree in either geology, chemistry or materials science. You will be trained in the use of state-of-the-art experimental and analytical equipment available in the Departments of Earth and Environmental Sciences and MACE at The University of Manchester. The studentship will include a placement at Rolls-Royce, involving learning about engine operation and examining contamination on engine components following operation in dusty environments. The supervisory team of both earth scientists and engineers at The UoM and Rolls-Royce, makes this an exciting project which will have impact in the aviation industry.
