South Bank University (LSBU) Fully funded PhD Studentship in the School of Engineering
Fully funded PhD Studentship in the School of Engineering
At London South Bank University (LSBU) our applied research tackles real-world issues. We are the top modern university in London for world-leading and internationally excellent research in General Engineering (REF 2014) with 80% of this research awarded the highest quality ratings of 4* or 3* for its ‘impact’ (reach and significance).
The School of Engineering is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD Studentship with industry collaboration. Funding will comprise of a stipend of circa £15,000 per annum plus UK/EU rate tuition fees.
The purpose of the research project is the Design, Simulation, Manufacture and Test of a Highly-Boosted Single-Cylinder Gasoline IC engine. The project may involve 1D and 3D Computational Fluids Dynamics (CFD) simulation, design (3D solid modelling, drafting), instrumentation and experimental testing. The successful applicant will focus on two or more areas of interest.
Candidates should normally hold a good degree in Engineering or Science related discipline, a keen interest in IC engines, and a willingness to engage with the Industry collaborator working to achieve project deliverables.
How to apply
Applications must include the following:
- Cover letter
- Curriculum vitae (CV)
- 1000 word research proposal based on your own literature review which discusses the challenges in “Developing a Highly-Boosted Single-Cylinder Gasoline IC Engine”. You should detail which areas from 1D and 3D Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), design (3D solid modelling, drafting), instrumentation, or experimental engine dynamometer testing you wish to focus on, and your relevant expertise in these areas.
Applications must be submitted by email or posted to:
Dr Mark Ellis
Senior Lecturer in Mechanical Engineering
London South Bank University
