Fluid dynamics sits at the centre of our lives. The weather we experience, the products we use, the food we eat, cars we drive, medical care we receive all depend on fluid dynamics.
The ability to measure, model and predict fluid flows is therefore critically important to the innovation of processes and products across almost all industries, and to the monitoring and prediction of environmental processes.
Our EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics tackles fundamental and applied problems providing students from a wide range of academic backgrounds with the opportunity to undertake cutting-edge, multidisciplinary research.
We also work with the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics at the University of Leeds (https://fluids.leeds.ac.uk/)
Applications for places in 2019 are now open. Deadline is the 4th March 2019. Apply here: https://fluid-dynamics.leeds.ac.uk/programme/
We are now recruiting to two specified PhD projects (one with Sellafield and one with GSK). Deadline is the 3rd May 2019. For more information please see: https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/bubble-growth-and-gaseous-release-dynamics-within-viscoelastic-soft-sediments/?p108149 and https://www.findaphd.com/phds/project/the-surprising-application-of-tornados-in-the-manufacture-of-pharmaceuticals/?p108147
We have a programme of continued investment in facilities and infrastructure ensuring that our staff and students benefit from state-of-the-art, high quality equipment and laboratories.
Fluid Dynamics arises across a multitude of industrial and environmental sectors, and the need for highly-skilled employees, with a broad and deep knowledge of fluid flow, is growing rapidly.
