  • Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
    Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

Project Description

Recent years have seen significant advances in the usage and deployment of large supercomputing resources. However, to harness the full power of existing and future large high-performance computing (HPC) facilities, requires new ideas, algorithms and software solutions. The Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) at the University of Surrey invites applications for a post-graduate (PhD) researcher, to investigate efficient parallel algorithms for computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for turbomachinery applications (turbine aerodynamics, hot gas ingestion, etc.) on large scale HPC machines.

The UTC group includes six academics, three post-doctoral researchers and several PhD students and is a leading developer of the Rolls-Royce Hydra CFD code.

The student will join the CENTRE FOR AERODYNAMICS AND ENVIRONMENTAL FLOW Rolls-Royce UTC on Thermo-Fluids in the Department and of Mechanical Engineering Sciences.

This project will be commencing in January 2020.

Entry requirements:
You will need a 2:1 degree level or higher in a relevant subject area.
IELTS requirements: 6.5 or above (or equivalent) with 6.0 in each individual category.

How to apply:
Applications can be made through our Aerodynamic and Environmental Flow PhD course page: Please state the project title and supervisor clearly on your application.
Initial enquiries should be sent to Dr. S. Marques ().

Funding Notes

The studentship is partially funded by Rolls-Royce UTC. You will receive a stipend of £16,000 per annum.
