Applications for the David Crighton Fellowship Programmes are now invited. This call is intended to scholars from all over the world who wish to do research in the area of applied mathematics concerned with fluid mechanics acounstics, waves and vibration at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), Cambridge University. Up to four best applicants will be selected to receive the fellowship. Expires in 52 days!
The David Crighton Fund was set up in memory of the late professor David Crighton FRS, to provide support for yuong scholars in his research field. i.e. the subfield of applied mathematics concerned with fluid mechanics acounstics, waves and vibration. The Managers of the Fund are accordingly offering up to four David Crighton Fellowships for research students and postdoctoral fellows in these areas. Applications are welcome from candidates based in Departments of Mathematics, Engineering or Physics in Cambridge and elsewhere.
The David Crighton Fellowship award is to be used to cover actual travel and subsistence expenses, up to a maximum amount of £3,800, to facilitate two to three months study and research.
Level and Area of Studies
Research program in applied mathematics concerned with fluid mechanics acounstics, waves and vibration.
Place of Study
The study will be taken in UK.
Eligibility and Criteria
Under normal circumstances we would expect fellowships to be taken up within 12 months of the successful candidates being notified of the outcome of the competition. Candidates based outside of Cambridge will have the opportunity to undertake study and research in Cambridge, whereas award winners currently based in Cambridge can utilize funds to travel elsewhere, Applicants should normally by in the second half of their PhD research, or have no more than three years postdoctoral experience.
There is no nationality restriction.
