Up to three fully-funded studentships are available for highly-motivated candidates to undertake PhD research within the Department of Mathematics at Aberystwyth University.
The research group in Mathematical Modelling of Structures, Solids and Fluids has an international reputation in the study of complex fluids and structures, offering a unified approach to the mathematical modelling, computation and analysis of materials.
Projects should be in the area of mathematical modelling of multiphysics phenomena in complex materials with microstructure, for example deformation, waves, fracture and damage propagation in inhomogeneous structures.
These three-year studentships are available from September 2015, paying the usual stipend and tuition fees at the level appropriate for UK and EU students. Candidates should have a first or upper second class degree (or equivalent) in applied mathematics or a related subject. They will be expected to travel and present at conferences and undertake secondments with industrial and/or academic partners overseas.
