EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics

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.

The CDT also benefits from membership of the Leeds Institute for Fluid Dynamics (LIFD), a cross-disciplinary research institute bringing together the expertise of over 200 researchers from 12 Schools in 4 Faculties at the University of Leeds. The institute provides a hub to facilitate world-leading research and education in fluid dynamics and to bring interdisciplinary perspectives to complex flow challenges.

Please note that recruitment to the CDT is now closed. We are currently in the process of applying for further funding from EPSRC, alongside all other CDTs in the UK that have gotten through to the full application stage (see EPSRC call). We will know if we are able to offer further funded places for 2024 entry in December 2023. Register your interest with us to be kept up to date.
