fbosi's picture

A 4-year PhD studentship is available in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at University College London. 

Description: The project aims to model, design and optimise three-dimensional micro- and nano-architected metamaterials for engineering applications in extreme environments. It will involve the development of a robust and efficient computational framework that includes finite element analysis and machine learning. The PhD research will be conducted in one, or more, of the following topics: (i) multifunctional carbon microlattices, (ii) highly morphable metamaterials, (iii) damage tolerance enhancement through engineered metamaterials, and (iv) multi-objective topological optimisation through latticing. Predictions from the numerical simulations will be validated experimentally using specimens manufactured by additive manufacturing techniques.

Value of award: Full tuition fees and a tax-free stipend of £19,668 per annum for 4 years. The scholarship covers tuition fees at home/UK rate (£5,690 per year).

Person Specification: Applicants must have a UK-equivalent first degree in solid mechanics, structural/mechanical/materials engineering or a related discipline. Experience in one, or more, of the following: material and structural modelling; numerical and finite element simulations; machine learning; experimental characterisation. Excellent organisational, interpersonal and communication skills are essential.

Application Process: Eligible applicants should first contact Prof F. Bosi ( enclosing a CV (including the names and contact details of two referees), the transcript of results (listing all subjects taken and their corresponding grades/marks), and a cover letter stating how the project meets your research interests.

The position is open until filled with a start date by mutual agreement, no later than October 2023.
