About the Project
This project will exploit state-of-the-art experimental techniques to examine the evolution of water-repellent soil hydro-mechanical behaviour on the microstructural (water retention and pore size evolution) and macrostructural (strength and stiffness) scales. The project will take advantage of the long-term strong collaborative relationships between leading UK universities studying unsaturated soil behaviour to deliver an engaging and rewarding PhD experience.
Minimum entry qualification - an Honours degree at 2:1 or above (or International equivalent) in a relevant science or engineering discipline, possibly supported by an MSc Degree. An undergraduate degree in Engineering with a focus on Civil Engineering is preferred however candidates with a degree in Engineering(any discipline), Mathematics or Physics will be considered.
31st December or until position filled
Applications are welcomed from international students but the funding will only cover the Home/EU fee rate. International students must therefore source funding to pay the difference between Home/EU fees and International fees.
