Epsrc Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub Modelling of Liquid Composites Moulding Processes

The University of Nottingham, UK is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in polymers. The funding allows successful candidate to work for three years. Applications are invited up to May 11, 2020.

Applications are invited for a PhD student to conduct research in manufacturing of fibre-reinforced polymer composites, in particular, resin transfer moulding (RTM). The PhD project will address key challenges RTM in process modelling, which are related to the presence of defects and irregularities in the fibrous reinforcement. This will ultimately lead to more precise, faster and more realistic modelling techniques which can be used for advanced design of composite processes.

The project will be aligned with one of the Hub Core project "Resin injection into reinforcement with uncertain heterogeneous properties" and include the opportunity to perform experimental validations of the developed modelling approaches and to work closely with the industrial and academic partners.

The successful candidate will join the University of Nottingham's Composites Research Group which leadsthe EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub, a 10.3m investment in fundamental research that aims to deliver a step change in the production of polymer matrix composites. More information on the Hub can be found at

For further information please contact:

Successful applicants will receive a tax free bursary of up to 19,000 p.a. (equivalent to 23,000 gross p.a.) and tuition fees for three years, subject to satisfactory research progress. This funding is for UK and EU applicants only. Candidates should be available to start on 1st June, 1st October or 1st December 2020.

To apply for a research studentship, please upload a CV and covering letter to quoting reference number ENG1352
