Work Opportunities with Micro & Nano Flows
A consortium of three internationally-leading UK research institutions is offering a fully-funded PhD
Scholarship for 3½ years to develop new modelling capabilities and simulation-for-design tools for
Nanoscale Interfacial Fluid Dynamics. This prestigious opportunity is funded by a flagship £3.4M
EPSRC Programme Grant awarded to Professor Duncan Lockerby and Dr James Sprittles (University of
Warwick), Professor David Emerson (Daresbury Laboratory) and Professor Jason Reese (University of
Edinburgh). The successful PhD student will be integrated into the Programme’s extensive
collaborative network of international researchers, nine industrial partners, and five PhD students to
deliver the knowledge required to understand and design next generation nano-engineered flow
Enthusiastic and talented researchers are encouraged to apply for Postdoctoral Fellowships and PhD Scholarships to join our vibrant collaborative Micro and Nanoflows for Engineering network. A number of potential funding routes exist, depending on the applicant’s circumstances, and these can be explored by contacting us at ‘firstname.lastname@example.org‘.
Potential funding routes include:
- Commonwealth Rutherford Fellowships
- EPSRC Fellowships
- European Commission Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowships (supporting applications from outside UK)
- Fulbright Commission Awards (for US citizens)
- Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowships
- Newton International Fellowships (for early-career researchers from China, India, Mexico or Turkey)
- Royal Commission of 1851 Research Fellowships
- Royal Society Dorothy Hodgkin and University Research Fellowships
Below are some possible sources of funding for PhD and PDRAs. Please update whenever you find a new source or have more details of an existing one. Eligibility is often unclear, so if in doubt email the appropriate contact and then update the details below.
- access to ARCHER – there are 2 RAP calls for 2017 for 6 – 12 months of access to ARCHER, funded by EPSRC
- embedded CSE (eCSE) support – only one eCSE call remains (see here); this call provides money to employ PDRAs/computational scientists to help maintain software sustainability and that runs on ARCHER
- American Physical Society, DFD meeting – usually provide travel grants (see specific conference)
- EUROMECH – provide support for Fluids Conference and Workshops (see specific conference)
- EPSRC international travel awards
- Institute of Physics Research Student Conference Fund (members only)
- EUROMECH who currently fund the European Postgraduate Fluid Dynamics Conference (an event you may consider bringing to your institution).
- Institute of Advanced Study in Warwick, a range of funding.
- London Mathematical Society funding for Postgraduate Research Conference Grants (organise for and by PhD students).
