Open Positions

PhD Studentship in Data-driven Low-dimensional Methods

We have an open position for an excellent EU/UK student for a PhD project sponsored by the U.S. Air Force Office of Scientific Research. The start date is October 2017. Flows of interest in many disciplines, from aviation to energy production and atmospheric sciences, are turbulent. In such applications, the Reynolds number (Re) is high and the dynamics are characterized by a wide range of scales, with the separation between large and small length eddies growing as Re3/4.

PhD Studentship in Multi-fidelity Aero-servo-elastic Analysis

We have an open position for an excellent EU/UK student for a PhD project sponsored by Airbus. The start date is October 2017. Aircraft in service today were all designed assuming a weak coupling of the different disciplines involved in the aircraft development process (aerodynamics, structures, etc.) leading to relatively rigid aircraft. Future aircraft will have to be flexible since this leads to increased performance and reduced environmental impact. To this goal, the project will … [read more]

PhD Studentship in Any Relevant Subject Area

We have an open position for an excellent EU/UK student for a PhD project sponsored by the University of Southampton. The start date is October 2017. Project details will be defined with the prospective student in the broad areas of numerical methods for aerospace and wind turbines. Expressions of interest are welcomed and should be addressed directly to Dr Andrea Da Ronch.
