PhD at ECoMMFiT

PhD opportunity

The ECoMMFiT group is looking for talented, enthusiastic and motivated applicants wishing to undertake research work for a PhD in Fluid Mechanics. Applications are invited from suitably qualified candidates with strong interests in fundamental or applied fluid mechanics. Opportunities are available in both experimental and theoretical aspects of fluid mechanics.
The research interests of the group are varied. If you are interested to join us for a PhD, we suggest that you have a look through our research pages as well as taking a look at the work carried out by our present and past researchers.
Further information on how to apply can be found in the Universitat Rovira i Virgili pages for Doctoral Programmes.
To make an informal enquiry contact Lluis Vazquez with a recent cv and general information about the area you would like to study.
