TitlePhD Studentship - Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) ENG1226
CategoryPhD Studentship
EmployerUniversity of Nottingham
LocationUnited Kingdom, Nottingham
InternationalYes, international applications are welcome
Closure DateMonday, December 31, 2018
Description:
Applications are invited for a PhD student to conduct computational fluid dynamics (CFD) research on 
two-phase flow representative of aero engine bearing chambers/gear boxes.  The successful candidate 
will join the University of Nottingham’s Gas Turbines and Transmissions Research Centre (G2TRC) which 
works on a range of projects the majority of which are for the Rolls Royce University Technology Centre 
(UTC) in Gas Turbine Transmission Systems.  The G2TRC comprises a team of around 50 researchers, 
academics, engineers, technicians and administrators.  This well-established research group has taken 
part in a number of EU and TSB/IUK funded research programs.

The G2TRC is conducting exciting and leading research supporting the formulation of two-phase flow 
strategies for engine transmission systems, gear boxes, engine core and accessories. We are interested in 
high-fidelity CFD simulations of air and water for shearing flows to identify values for the interfacial shear 
stress and to inform interfacial turbulence models.  The successful candidate will use a variety of two-
phase flow CFD methods across a range of operating points and liaise closely with the experimental team.  
We are looking for an enthusiastic and self-motivated person who meets the academic requirements for 
enrolment for PhD research at the University of Nottingham. Ideally you will have a 1st class or good 2:1 
honours degree in a relevant engineering or related subject, and an enquiring and rigorous approach to 
research together with a strong intellect and disciplined work habits. A keen interest in numerical 
simulation for multiphase flow applicable to aero engine transmissions is essential. Good team-working, 
flexibility and communication skills are all essential for this post.

A stipend of £16,800 will be paid per annum for 3.5 years.  Due to funding restrictions this studentship is 
only available to UK and EU citizens.  Candidates should be able to start on 1st February 2019.

Due to the nature of this post, all offers of employment will be subject to the appropriate level of security 
clearance and an independent verification of unspent convictions obtained by means of a Basic Disclosure 
Certificate obtained from Disclosure Scotland, or an overseas police check.

For application, please submit a CV, cover letter including your research interests, and the names and 
email addresses of two referees to Dr. Richard Jefferson-Loveday (richard.jefferson-
loveday@nottingham.ac.uk).  Further information or enquiries about the vacancy can also be asked from 
the same contact.  Suitable applicants will be interviewed, and if successful, invited to make a formal 
application.
