Two PhD projects are available in the Materials Group of the Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge, co supervised by Dr Graham McShane and Dr Hugh Shercliff. Both projects are for 3.5 years, starting in October 2017.
Applicants should have First class or high Upper Second Bachelors and Masters level qualifications in Mechanical/Manufacturing Engineering, or Materials Science and Engineering. Some prior knowledge of finite element methods would be an advantage.

Overseas students with equivalent excellent qualifications are also eligible to apply, provided they can fully cover their own maintenance and fees (approx. £40k p.a.) from other sources, or by self¿funding.
