Research opportunities

Fully funded PhD studentship for data-driven and physics informed learning of multi-scale mechanics

Liu's group is looking for highly motivated and talented PhD candidates to work on the exciting field of data-driven and physics-informed learning of multi scale mechanics. A fully funded PhD studentship is available which covers the university fees and in addition, a stipend of £14,830 per annum for 3 years, with no nationality restrictions.

We are looking for highly motivated and talented candidates with bachelor's or master's degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Computer Science, Civil and Material Engineering, or related fields. Applicants should have (or expect to obtain by the start date) at least a good 2.1 degree in Engineering, Applied Mathematics or Computer Science. A strong background in solid mechanics, applied mathematics or computer science is a plus. 

To apply for this studentship, please send your CV to Dr Burigede Liu ( The review of the application will start immediately. To be given full consideration for admission in Fall 2022, please submit your application by February 1, 2022.
