Theoretical Physics of Soft Active MatterA fully funded PhD position in the theory of soft active materials is available at the Department of Mathematics, University of Bristol for UK/EU students, starting in October 2009 (though an earlier start is possible). The project is part of an international collaboration and will require the student to spend a significant amount of time in the USA (Syracuse, NY) as well as to make a number of trips to Stellenbosch, South Africa.

The department of Bioengineering is a 5* research rated department based at South Kensington and has a strong track record in areas such as Physiological Mechanisms, Biomedical Systems, and Neurotechnology. Its thriving PhD community, large undergraduate population, and strongly multi-disciplinary academic staff build an ideal scientific and internationally competitive environment for our PhD programme.

We invite applications for two Research Council funded (BBSRC) studentships to start in October 2009.  One of the studentships will be industry supported (CASE).

Dorothy Hodgkin Postgraduate Studentship in CFD for Gas Turbines -Thermo-Fluid Systems University Technology Centre

Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, University of Surrey, and Rolls-Royce plc

Starting date: 1st April 2009

The main research focus will be on the development, evaluation and application of CFD based methods for compressor disc drum thermal analysis. This includes development of models and stability analysis of complex buoyancy affected flows in rapidly rotating disc cavities. The research will contribute to ongoing developments in CFD and its applications to turbomachinery in the Rolls-Royce supported University Technology Centre.

Applications are invited for nine MRes/PhD 4-year studentships within the British Heart Foundation (BHF) Centre of Research Excellence at Imperial College London, to start in October 2009. These studentships will be funded by the BHF for 4 years, on a tax free starting bursary of £18,000 per annum.  Please note that tuition fees will be paid at the Home/EU rate. These are funded through a training grant from the BHF. There is no provision for overseas student fees..
