PhD Studentship Biologically Inspired Underwater Soft Robotics at University of Southampton

University of Southampton, UK is inviting excellent candidates to apply for a PhD position in fluid mechanics. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 5 years in UK. Potential candidates should apply before August 31, 2020.

Animals glide effortlessly through amazing underwater acrobatics, while our best underwater vehicles fight against the water during the simplest accelerations and manoeuvres. Using soft robotics, the student working on this project will develop highperformance underwater vehicles capable of biological levels of performance and efficiency. Southampton leads the UK in underwater robotics and biological fluid mechanics, and previous work in this direction has led to world record vehicles (Guinness Book 2019, fastest underwater acceleration) and high profile publications.

Key skills: Fluid mechanics, and depending on the student – interest in either computation/simulation or hands on robotics

A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent).

:applications should be received no later than 31 August 2020 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

Funding: full tuition fees for EU/UK students plus for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 15,009 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Applications should be made online here selecting "PhD Eng & Env (Full time)" as the programme. Please enter Gabriel Weymouth under the proposed supervisor.
