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.

At Home in Coventry 1945-1975
This PhD will explore the notion of what a home meant to the diverse populations within Coventry in the immediate post-war period. Choosing from the extensive collection of art, artefacts, photographs, and archives that are held by the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, the research will combine art and/or design research with social and cultural history.
Computational Modelling of Conformal Cooling
The project aims to developing a validated mathematical model of the cooling of aluminium casting tools, to achieve optimum cooling channel layout for complex tool geometries.
The non-linear states of convection in the Earth core
The purpose of this thesis is to theoretically predict all 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.
