  1. Ph.D. FELLOWSHIP ON THE NON-LINEAR STATES OF CONVECTION IN THE EARTH CORE AT COVENTRY UNIVERSITY (UK)
    —————————–
    (from Alban Potherat, UK )

LEVERHULME TRUST Ph.D. FELLOWSHIP ON THE NON-LINEAR STATES OF CONVECTION IN THE EARTH CORE AT COVENTRY UNIVERSITY (UK)

A Ph.D. position in theoretical fluid mechanics is offered at Coventry University (UK). The project concerns convection under a magnetic field in the so called “tangent cylinder” region of the Earth’s core. Much of the mystery surrounding the Earth’s dynamics (its magnetic field, plate tecnonics) lies in the nature of the convective patterns within the Earth’s liquid core, and in particular in the region called the “Tangent Cylinder”. What are the possible convective states under the combined influence of the Earth’s rotation and magnetic field, and how erratic are they? This thesis is part of a theoretical and experimental research
program funded by the prestigious Levehulme Trust (http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk), that aims at answering these questions. The purpose of this thesis is to theoretically predict the possible nonlinear convective states for the first time. We will then evaluate which of these states are mostly likely to underpin the Earth’s core convection.
The student will conduct the theoretical and numerical analysis of the problem under the joint supervision of Prof. Alban Pothérat (http://users.complexity-coventry.org/~potherat/index.html) and Dr Chris Pringle. The study will seek the possible structure of convection by means of advanced stability theory and branch tracking method, to unveil the possible states. In the frame of the research program, the PhD work will be conducted in collaboration with an experimental study that will seek to reproduce and visualise these non-linear states in an experimental model of the Earth Core.

Successful candidates are expected to hold or be on course for a MSc or equivalent, in fluid mechanics or a related discipline (Physics/Mathematics), and to have demonstrated excellent abilities in mathematics and programming. Applicants having validated the theoretical part of their Masters and needing an internship to validate their Masters degree are encouraged to apply too. The student will receive a net, tax-free bursary of £15k per annum.

The successful candidate will be part the vibrant team of internationally recognised academics and PhD students forming the fluid dynamics group within the Applied Mathematics Research Centre, whose work has been ranked at 87% world-class at the UK’ latest Research Excellence Framework in 2014. This unit is part of the Flow Measurement and Fluid Mechanics Research Centre, specialises in theoretical and experimental fluid mechanics. It is especially renowned for its work on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), turbulence, stability and geophysical flows,. The group closely collaborates with partner groups in world-leading institutions in Australia, China, France, Germany and the UK.

Informal enquiries are welcome: please forward a CV and academic records to Prof. Alban Pothérat (Coventry University, alban.potherat@coventry.ac.uk).

    1. Ph.D IN THEORETICAL FLUID MECHANICS ON QUASI-TWO DIMENSIONAL ATMOSPHERIC FLOWS AT COVENTRY UNIVERSITY (UK) – MONASH UNIVERSITY (AUSTRALIA)

—————————–
(from Alban Potherat, UK)

Applications are invited to apply for a PhD studentship in theoretical fluid mechanics, as part of the Applied Mathematics Research Centre (http://complexity-coventry.org/home/) at Coventry University. This PhD is to develop mathematical models for quasi-two dimensional flows in collaboration with Monash University in Melbourne, Australia (http://sheardlab.org).

Flow patterns observed in planetary atmospheres such as the hexagonal structures at Saturn’s north poles, or large patterns in the Earth’s atmosphere are so much wider (>1000 km) than they are thick (a few km) that they are almost two-dimensional (2D) objects. Even though their fine structure involves complex three-dimensional phenomena, their evolution within the global structure of the atmosphere can be expected to be reasonably well represented by 2D equations of motion. Simulating these events with 2D equation requires so much less computational power than the full 3D equations that they open such
possibilities as simulating entire planetary atmospheres in a single computation, or studying the very long-term evolution of these structures. Yet, to be physically accurate, these 2D equations still need to account for some of the 3D effects due to planetary rotation and curvature, ground friction, and other phenomena such as the transfer of heat to and within the atmosphere. The purpose of the project is to mathematically derive such 2D models from the full 3D equations and, by means of numerical simulations and stability analsysis, understand the mechanisms driving large atmospheric patterns, possibly at the scale of the entire planet. The 2D models will also be used to simulate laboratory-scale experiments where these mechanisms could be reproduced and where the
models themselves could be validated.

Successful candidates are expected to hold or be on course for a MSc or equivalent, with a grade of 70% or above, in fluid mechanics or a related discipline (Physics/ Engineering/ Mathematics), and to have demonstrated excellent abilities in mathematics and programming. Applicants having validated the theoretical part of their Masters and needing an internship to validate their Masters degree are encouraged to apply too. The student will receive a tax-free bursary of £15k per annum.

The successful candidate will be part the vibrant team of internationally recognised academics and PhD students forming the fluid dynamics group within the Applied Mathematics Research Centre, whose worked has been ranked at 87% world-class at the UK Research Excellence Framework in 2014. AMRC is especially renowned for its work on magnetohydrodynamics (MHD), turbulence, stability and geophysical flows. The group closely collaborates with partner groups in worldleading institutions in Australia, China, France, Germany and the UK. This specific project is part of a collaborative program between Coventry and Monash Universities funded by the British Royal Society, and offers the student an opportunity to travel and work in Melbourne during their PhD.

Informal enquiries are welcome: please forward a CV and academic records to Prof. Alban Pothérat (Coventry University, alban.potherat@coventry.ac.uk) or Dr. Greg Sheard, Monash University (greg.sheard@monash.edu.au). The position will be open until a suitable candidate is found.
