Our Aeroelastic and Structural Design Lab, led by Dr Andrea Cini and Dr Rauno Cavallaro, offers a fully funded 3-4 years PhD studentship. The studentship should be on the topic of Design tools for aeroelastic and structural virtual certification of new generation wings.
Applicants should hold or expect to obtain a first-class or upper second-class honours degree, preferably at master level or equivalent, in aerospace engineering or a relevant discipline, such as mechanical or structural engineering. Students with a background in aeronautical structures are particularly encouraged to apply. Candidates should be self-motivated and capable of working under pressure to meet deadlines. They should also have good communication skills, inclination to research and proactive behaviour. Previous experience in finite element modelling (Abaqus, Nastran, Ansys, OptiStruct) and programming skills (Matlab, Pyton, C++) would be advantageous.
Closing date is 30/06/2021
