PhD Studentship Marie Sklodowska-curie Fellow Itn Multi-disciplinary Design Optimization of Cellular Heat Exchangers

University of Southampton is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in artificial intelligence. The funds for this fellowship are available for four years. The deadline to apply is April 11, 2019.

A position in the area of Multi-disciplinary Design Optimisation of Cellular Heat Exchangers (InDESTruct ESR1) leading to a PhD is available at the University of Southampton.

For up to 18 months of the post you will be based at Boldrewood Campus at the University of Southampton, with the remaining time spent at Vestas Aircoil in Denmark.

You will pursue research in the area of multi-disciplinary design and optimisation. This is an exciting project lying at the interface of design, optimisation, machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), fluid and structural mechanics, vibration, mathematical modelling, and material science. The project will focus on the multi-disciplinary optimisation of a heat exchanger system.

The recruited PhD student will aim to develop a novel automated design framework based on cutting edge machine learning and AI approaches in order to explore and improve the multi-disciplinary performance of novel cellular heat exchanger topologies. Specific focus of this studentship will be on fluid dynamic simulation and the development of a generic framework within which other performance criteria e.g. stresses, vibration response, life etc. can be assessed and optimised. The successful candidate should have an undergraduate degree or equivalent in a numerate discipline e.g. engineering, physics or applied mathematics (or equivalent), ideally with experience in computational fluid dynamics, computer aided design and experience of programming in Matlab, Python or similar.

Dr David Toal and Dr Edward Richardson within the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences are the academic supervisors. Additionally, there will be industrial co-supervisors from Vestas Aircoil.

A bachelor's degree, or equivalent, in a numerate discipline (engineering, physics, applied mathematics or materials science) with computational as well as experimental interests. This will have been earned prior to joining the doctoral programme.

For research students whose first language is not English, a Certificate of English language proficiency (of Band C minimum). Details of the requirement are given in the link below:

Self motivated with the ability to define your own research questions.

Applicants shall, at the time of recruitment, be in the first four years (full-time equivalent research experience) of their research careers and not yet have been awarded a doctoral degree. Full-time equivalent research experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree which would formally entitle him/her to embark on a doctorate.

An exciting training environment at the University of Southampton and the other industrial partner organisations
