News & Events-Frazer-Nash supports PhD studentship: The impact of oceanic internal waves on sheared density interfaces


Frazer-Nash is supporting the PhD studentship, "The impact of oceanic internal waves on sheared density interfaces" and the University of Bristol, with G K Batchelor Laboratory, University of Cambridge is seeking applications now. The project is expected to last for over three years.

You can find out about the research project and the application process by clicking here.

The project provides the opportunity to work in two internationally leading universities. The successful candidate will be based at the University of Bristol, supervised by Dr Andrew Lawrie, but will spend around 25 per cent of their time at the University of Cambridge with Dr Stuart Dalziel, who is co-supervising this project. The project involves elements of theoretical, experimental and numerical modelling, making it an ideal launch pad for a successful career in academic or industrial research.

A first-class honours degree in Mathematics, or a physical science with strong mathematical content. A good understanding of fluid mechanics and inverse problem theory will be considered highly desirable; applicants with equivalent industrial experience are strongly encouraged.

Due to funding restrictions, this studentship is only open to UK nationals.
