MPhil Studentship (Industrial Sponsor) – University of Liverpool

Job description

Airflow resistance measurements on porous materials at high temperatures.

Applications are invited for a postgraduate student to join the Acoustics Research Unit (https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/architecture/research/acoustics-research-unit/about/) for a fully-funded, one-year period of full-time research awarding an MPhil. Morgan Advanced Materials are funding the research.

The project concerns designing, building and validating a test rig to measure airflow resistivity of materials at high temperature (>500°C)

The minimum requirement is a first degree (First or Upper Second) in engineering, acoustics or similar.

The stipend is £14,553pa, and the MPhil registration fees for Home/EU students will be paid for one year (International student applications, with at least 6.5 IELTS, are welcome but they will need to fund the difference between Home/EU and International fees).

The studentship begins August/September 2017
