Project detail

Understanding the transport and deposition of nano-particles within the human lung, whether delivering life-saving drugs or damaging material, is of vital importance. This research project will enable experimental investigation into flow-particle interactions using state-of-the-art optical diagnostic techniques in conjunction with physical lung models and controlled breath simulators. This work will develop much-needed insight into the fundamental physical interactions that occur during inhalation and aid mathematical model development.

The candidate undertaking this research will gain an in-depth understanding of multiphase flow, high-level skills in experimental techniques using optical-diagnostics, and experience of computational model development.

The PhD student will be supported by a dedicated and experienced supervisory team to enable the student to contribute to this important field within healthcare engineering.

Start date of studentship: 01 October 2020.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in engineering, physics, or a related subject. A relevant Master’s degree and/or experience in one or more of the following will be an advantage: thermofluids, fluid engineering, healthcare engineering.

How to apply

All applications should be made online at http://www.lboro.ac.uk/study/apply/research/. Under programme name, select ‘Mechanical, Electrical & Manufacturing Engineering’.

Please quote reference number: SAM25.

Funding Notes

Applicants who apply for this project will be considered on a competitive basis in March 2020 against candidates shortlisted for this and other projects with the advert reference beginning ‘SAM’. Early submission is advised, and a complete application must be received before the advert’s closing date.

If successful, candidates will be awarded a 3-year school studentship providing a tax-free stipend and tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (currently £15,009 and £4,327, respectively, in 2019-20 which are likely to rise by 2020/21). Non-EU-nationals may apply but the studentship will cover the cost of the international tuition fee only.

Successful candidates will be notified by 26 March 2020.
