We have been awarded a Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) with a focus on
Water Informatics in Science and Engineering (WISE). WISE is a
collaborative effort across the Universities of Exeter (focus is urban
drainage), Bristol (hydrology), Cardiff (hydraulics) and Bath
We are looking to recruit up to 20 PhD students per year for the next five
years into WISE. Students can come from any engineering or physical
sciences discipline, as well as mathematics or computing. UK and EU
students will be fully funded for 4 years (others can be partially
funded). The first year includes a set of courses in informatics and water
subjects, followed by a period to develop a specific research idea for
every student. Each student will then execute the research at their
institution of choice. Students are part of the program, but will receive
their degree from only one of the institutions involved.
More information about WISE and the application process can be found here.
Please pass this information on to any BS or MS student interested in the
computational aspects of water research.
I would also be happy to interact with any interested candidates.
