PhD scholarship for UK or EU applicants in the field of: Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science
Subject study: Parallel computing for advanced engineering simulations
The project will research and develop a framework where the latest massively parallel computing engines (GPU’s/Co-processors) and multi-core CPUs are utilised within an engineering simulation system to accelerate targeted areas of the computational model. The nature of the PhD research work is multidisciplinary, involving mathematics, computer science and engineering applications in material, manufacturing and energy sectors. The PhD project is open ended with a large degree of freedom to explore further into several related directions in parallel computing, computer simulation, data analysis, and engineering applications. The project is collaborative between a large academic research team and a leading industrial partner.
Candidates with a background in engineering and physics (civil, mechanical, aerospace, geotechnical, or related subjects), computer science, and mathematics are encouraged to apply, and relevant MSc degrees would be appreciated.
