About the Project
Research Environment: The student will benefit from an excellent research training environment provided by the Applied and Computational Mechanics group at Cardiff University’s School of Engineering and also by Airbus. Airbus is a world leader in wing design, engineering and manufacturing and is a key centre for the design, testing and integration of fuel systems and landing gear. Airbus will host and train the student at their research facility in Filton (Bristol) for about 15% of the time of the PhD studentship. The student will also receive training in the use of high performance computing facilities which will provided at both Cardiff and Airbus.
Learning and Development Opportunities: Training will be provided by the supervisors on Bayesian machine learning approaches, especially with regard to stochastic surrogate models and inverse problems. During the time spent at Airbus, training will be provided on the use of industry-grade simulation software for testing aircraft configurations. The wide range of professional development courses available in Cardiff will equip the student with a wide range of skills ranging from project management to research methodology and use of advanced software. The student is expected to produce high quality journal articles for scientific publication during the course of his/her PhD and will be expected to participate and present his/her research in international conferences.
Candidates should hold or expect to gain a first-class degree or a good 2.1 (or their equivalent) in Engineering or a related subject, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK. Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will be considered if they also have a Master’s degree or relevant industrial experience. Desirable skills: · A good background in coding in Matlab / Python / Fortran / C. · Good project management and communication skills · Research experience Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to demonstrate proficiency in the English language (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent).
