[UK] PhD Studentship in Gas Turbine Engineering - Cranfield Universty

The Gas Turbine Engineering Group is based within the Department of Power, Propulsion and Aerospace Engineering, School of Engineering, Cranfield University.

A key focus of this group is peformance research. The core of performance analysis is a model of the power system assembled from aerodynamic, thermal or electrical component characteristics within a thermodynamic framework. Currently aircraft propulsion is dominated by the gas turbine, but the modelling techniques are adaptable to other, novel power systems, both for propulsion and land based power generation. Accurate performance prediction is crucial to identifying the optimum vehicle configuration as well as the technologies and the risk mitigation strategies required to realise it. Cranfield has a proven track record in power plant performance analysis together with expertise in airframe design, aircraft systems and aircraft operation which has been built up over the last 50 years. This provides a unique capability within the UK for optimising the power system in the context of the whole vehicle and meeting the long term needs of the community.

PhD Studentships are available in the field of propulsion and strong interaction with industry in this field means that individuals are well prepared for a rewarding career after successful completion of the PhD.

These studentships offer stipends of
approximately £12,000 - £15,000 per year

Cranfield is the largest academic centre for postgraduate studies in science and technology in Western Europe. Focused on developing applied research to meet the demands of industry, Cranfield is ranked among the very best and attracts far more industrial funding than its peers.

Applicants should have or expect to gain a UK 1st or upper 2nd class degree or equivalent in aeronautical or mechanical engineering. An MSc or experience in numerical modelling, fracture mechanics, and/or aircraft structures is desirable. Application form can be found from here.

The application form, CV and the names and addresses of two referees should also be posted to: Professor Pericles Pilidis, Gas Turbine Engineering Group, School of Engineering, Cranfield University, Bedford, MK43 0AL. For further information about the studentship please contact Professor Pericles Pilidis;;
