BPI Scholarships for a PhD in Fluid Flow or Surface Science

The BPI is delighted to announce 2 fully funded BPI Scholarships to fund PhD research for 3.5 years. These are open to candidates interested in fluid flow or surface science. Research in the BPI covers a broad range of problems in fluid science, ranging from volcanic eruptions, carbon sequestration, ice sheet motion and ocean mixing through to micro-encapsulation techniques, wetting, corrosion, numerical simulation of droplets and also flow in porous rocks.

Applications for the Scholarships should only include (i) a one-page c.v. including your name, address and email address, a statement of university exam results and the name, address and email address of two academic referees; and (ii) a one page research statement which relates to one of the available PhD-projects in the BPI (see www.bpi.cam.ac.uk/phd), or which may be a research project proposal of your own choosing.

If possible, we encourage candidates to discuss their research plans with members of the BPI faculty (see www.bpi.cam.ac.uk/people). The successful candidates will be supervised by one (or more) of the faculty in the BPI, and will be registered in one of the parent departments of the BPI (Earth Sciences, Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology, or Engineering).

The closing data for applications in this round is December 3, 2019. Please submit applications to catherine@bpi.cam.ac.uk. We strongly encourage candidates also to submit an application to the University of Cambridge Graduate Admissions system to ensure they meet the deadlines for various other awards for PhD funding in the University of Cambridge.
