HETSYS PhD studentship in Data-driven materials modelling

PhD in Data-driven modelling of non-linear heterogenous materials

We are looking for an enthusiastic candidate with a sound background in micromechanics/solid mechanics, and interest in data-driven multiscale modelling of heterogeneous materials to work on a project 'Heterogeneous Materials in Extreme Environments' within the Centre for Doctoral Training HetSys at the University of Warwick (see https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/hetsys/).

 

Entry requirements

We are looking for enthusiastic students from across the physical sciences who enjoy using their mathematical skills and thinking flexibly to solve complex problems. We require at least a 2(i) honours degree at BSc or an integrated masters degree (e.g. MPhys, MChem, MSci, MEng etc.) in a physical sciences, mathematics or engineering discipline.

Funding

  • UK/EU Applicants. HetSys provides funding for the four-year programme to UK and EU students (who meet the required UK residency criteria). For other EU students, fee-only funding is available.
  • International Applicants. In addition, one studentship per year may be offered to an exceptional student of any citizenship. Applications for this studentship must be submitted by 31 January 2020, and must include responses to the following questions within the supporting statement:
    • Describe your academic history, skills, expertise, professional experience and awards or publications and how these prepare you for the HetSys training programme (300 words maximum).
    • Describe how your skills and interests match with your chosen PhD project or projects. You might want to consider the significance of the project and any prior engagement with relevant topics (300 words maximum).

Fully funded studentships pay a stipend to cover maintenance as well as paying the university fees and research training support. The stipend is at the standard UKRI rate (for 2019/20 that is £15,009 per annum).

We normally expect to have allocated these studentships by late Spring for the course starting in October.

Self-funded applicants of any citizenship who meet the Entry Requirements are also encouraged to apply.
