Detail information about job PhD Studentship: Simulation and Modelling of Casting. Terms and conditions vacancy

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the experimental investigation of the formation of iron-containing intermetallics in recycled aluminium alloys in the Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST). Successful applicants will receive an annual stipend (bursary) of £16,553 plus payment of their full time tuition fees at the published home/EU rate for a period of 48 months.

BCAST is a speciality research institute focusing on solidification related research with an international reputation and is the host of the national centre of excellence in liquid metal engineering (the Future LiME Research Hub). Our research covers fundamental research, technological development and industrial applications in the field of solidification and materials processing. BCAST is well equipped with state-of-the-art facilities for both solidification processing and materials characterisation. See BCAST website for further information.

The successful candidate will work on the computer modelling and simulation of shape casting processes. Applicants should have a strong background and interest in mathematical modelling and computer simulation. Experience in finite element (FE) method and computation fluid dynamic (CFD) modelling would be an advantage. You should be willing to interact with other researchers in BCAST for experimental verification of the models.

Informal enquiries should be emailed direct to Professor Alain Jacot at [email protected] or by telephone, direct line +44(0)1895 265358.


Applicants will have a first degree at 2:1 or above in metallurgy, materials sciences, chemical engineering or a related field of science or engineering. A Master’s level qualification is an advantage but not essential. In addition, applicants should be highly motivated, able to work in a team and have good communication skills.

Applicants must also have been resident in the UK for 3 years, not wholly or mainly for the purpose of receiving full time education, to receive the studentship.

How to Apply

Please email the following to [email protected] by 30th September 2017. Interviews will take place in October 2017.

  • Your up-to-date CV;
  • A single page (A4), single-spaced personal statement setting out why you are a suitable candidate and interested in undertaking this project;
  • A copy of your degree certificate(s) and/or transcript(s);
  • Evidence of English language proficiency to IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent), if appropriate;
  • Names and contact details for two academic referees.
