PhD Positions to Work on Projects in Composites Manufacturing

A PhD scholarship in material sciences is available at The University of Nottingham. Potential candidates should apply before September 17, 2019.

Applications are invited for two PhD positionsto work on projectsin composites manufacturing. Successful candidates will join the University of Nottingham's Composites Research Group which leads the EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub, a 10.3m investment in fundamental research that aims to deliver a step change in the production of polymer matrix composites. More information on the Hub can be found at

As part of a larger research programmefocusing on control of composites manufacturing processes and product quality optimisation, one PhD candidate will work on the implementation of novel numerical process control algorithms. The other PhD candidate will focus on experimental work and implementation of new methods in a lab environment.

The studentship offers atax-free bursary of up to 19,000 p.a. (equivalent to 23,000 gross p.a.) and covers fulltuition fees, subject to a satisfactory research progress. This funding is for UK and EU applicants only. Candidates should be available to start on 1st October or 1st December2019.

We require an enthusiastic graduate with a 1st class degree in a relevant discipline, such as engineering, material science or physics(in exceptional circumstances a 2:1 class degree, or equivalent, can be considered). Candidates are expected to have experience in composites manufacturing or have excellent experimental or numerical modellingskills.

Deadline: September 17, 2019
