PhD studentship @ University of Oxford

v.tagarielli's picture

A fully funded PhD research studentship is available at the University of Oxford, in the Solid Mechanics Group.

The associated research project is funded by EPRSC, DSTL and a number of industrial partners including BAE Systems and Rolls-Royce Marine. The aim of the project is to investigate the dynamic loading of composite components of submarines, including fluid-structure interaction phenomena and the non-linear mechanical response of fibre composite materials. The approach will integrate experimental observations, numerical simulations and theoretical analyses, and the research student will have access to excellent laboratory and computing resources.

The successful applicant must have a good first degree in engineering and great passion for mechanics and structures. Some knowledge of composite materials and finite element analysis, as well as some experience in a laboratory environment is also desirable. Preference will be given to UK/EU citizens but overseas applicants that fulfil all requirements will definitely be considered.

The PhD student will become a graduate member of an Oxford college and will conduct research in a vibrant, intellectually stimulating environment. The studentship will cover University and college fees and provide a stipend at the standard EPSRC rate.

Applications should be sent to Dr Vito Tagarielli ( and should include a cover letter, a CV and any other relevant material (such as summary of previous research experience, list of exams taken, names of referees…). 

The starting date is any time from 1st of October 2009.
