Our Research Opportunities
Coventry University £7million Postgraduate Research Studentship fund
Coventry University is a top-50 placed (Complete University Guide 2019,) globally-connected university with research collaborations across the planet and multinational research staff and postgraduate researchers. We give as high a priority to top quality research as we give to top quality teaching. 92% of our research was rated as ‘world-leading’, ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘recognised internationally’ (REF 2014 – assessed every seven years)
Coventry University has a growing reputation as a successful research university with a strong international profile, investment and expertise in professional development for researchers, and an excellent track record in delivering programmes to develop research capability with international partners. We have committed £250m to research, through investment in our estate, infrastructure and facilities, and programmes and initiatives that support researchers.
We have a network of 14 multi-disciplinary Research Centres and a Doctoral College and Centre for Research Capability and Development which offers a home and a community to our 700 researchers, working on an expansive portfolio of research across the themes of: Safety and Security, Sustainability and Resilience, Health and Well-being, Intelligent Products and Processes, Creative Cultures and Global Learning, Education and Attainment.

Magnetohydrodynamic Turbulence In Extreme Conditions
The PhD student will be conducting an experimental project during which a turbulent flow is generated within a cell filled with liquid metal and placed inside of one the large magnets available at LNCMI in Grenoble, which are capable of producing some of the strongest magnetic fields in the world.
We are seeking candidates to explore the nature and experience of social enterprises in a specific country context or even from a comparative perspective.
Performance evaluation of galvanic anodes used as part of repair systems in RC structures
Galvanic anodes have been designed to enhance patch concrete repairs and also provide protection to sound but chloride contaminated concrete. A range of galvanic anode products are available on the market with a number of them being fairly new. The proposed research motives will result in development of a range of physical and electrochemical test method(s) to be used in the evaluation of performance and service life of galvanic anode systems.
