Experimental Investigation of Singular Two-phase Pressure Losses Relevant to Nuclear System Thermal-hydraulic Applications

  • Preferred start date: Monday 30 September 2024
  • Application deadline: 10th听May 2024

A fully funded 4-year EPSRC ICASE PhD Studentship, co-sponsored by Westinghouse, is available in the Nuclear Futures Institute at 欧美性爱片 to design and perform experiments at the THOR loop to measure two-phase pressure drop across selected simple geometrical singularities within a relevant range of conditions. The project is in collaboration with Westinghouse Electric Sweden AB and the University of Sheffield (c/o Prof. Shuisheng He). In addition, the project will benefit from the support from international experts as part of the FONESYS (Forum & Network of System Thermal-Hydraulics Codes in Nuclear Reactor Thermal-Hydraulics) and SILENCE (SIgnificant Light and Heavy Water Reactor Thermal Hydraulic Experiments Network for the Consistent Exploitation of the Data) networks.听听

In nuclear reactors, singular pressure losses are fundamental to the overall behaviour of the reactor coolant under both normal and accident conditions. For most design basis accidents, the predicted reactor transients by thermal-hydraulic system codes can be significantly impacted by pressure losses, affecting the overall dynamic behaviour of the system and associated safety margin to design criteria. Under two-phase natural circulation conditions upon which safety system of advanced reactor relies, singular pressure losses can significantly affect the coolant flow rate and hence the long-term heat removal capabilities of the reactor. Singular pressure losses are relatively well known under single-phase conditions. However, under two-phase flow condition (typical of reactor transients and two-phase natural circulation) large uncertainties are expected due to the lack of fundamental understanding of the irreversible form losses across singularities. In the proposed project, this knowledge gap will be addressed based on a specific test program at the THOR facility at 欧美性爱片. Examples of geometries that will be investigated include an orifice with varying inner diameter and length in an expanding and contracting manner, and/or geometries with obstacles, either in a vertical or horizontal orientation.

The student stipend is 拢19,237 per annum in the first year, with all fees and other costs covered. Generous funding is also available for training, conference and workshop attendance.

  • The successful candidates are expected to hold a first class or upper second-class degree in engineering, physics or applied mathematics. Interests in experimental thermal-hydraulics, CFD, and nuclear engineering are desirable but pre-knowledge and experience are not essential.
  • The student is expected to present their research outcomes to the project team/sponsors on a regular basis in both written and oral formats.
  • Proficient in English (speaking and writing; 欧美性爱片 requires an IELTS score of 6.5.听/international/future/englishlanguage) (essential).

For further information please contact Dr Walter Villanueva听w.villanueva@bangor.ac.uk.

Business

欧美性爱片 is offering an exciting fully funded PhD Studentship that鈥檚 co-funded by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol (50%) and 欧美性爱片 Business School (50%) that includes tuition fees (Home) and a stipend at the UKRI minimum.

We are looking for a highly motivated doctoral candidate to join听欧美性爱片 Business School鈥檚听Institute of European Finance research centre. The aim of this project is to study Sub-Sovereign regions in Europe that have bond issuing powers, and to draw similarities to the case of Wales. The studentship is for 3 years and covers Home (UK) tuition fees and stipend at the UKRI minimum currently starting at 拢18,622 (2023/24 academic year).听

This project is co-funded (50%) by the听听and in-line with the Coleg Cymraeg鈥檚听, the project will be conducted and presented through the medium of Welsh. Therefore, the successful candidate must be a fluent Welsh speaker who is confident in speaking and writing through the medium of Welsh.

About the project

This research will explore the characteristics of Sub-Sovereign borrowing across the UK and Europe. Currently, Wales has limited borrowing capacity, but the devolution of powers may lead to greater capacity in the future.

Many Sub-Sovereign regions in Europe have years of experience of borrowing in the international bond markets and Credit Ratings play a key role in this process. In the UK, it is only a recent development that Sub-Sovereign regions can borrow in the bond markets. This research aims to seek important lessons for Wales by analysing Sub-Sovereign borrowing in regions of Europe that are experienced.

The candidate will be affiliated with the听Institute of European Finance research centre听which conducts topical and innovative academic research in banking, finance, accounting, and data analytics. The Centre works with multilateral organisations, national governments, regulatory authorities, and public and private financial institutions to promote evidence-based policy decisions, competitiveness within the industry, economic growth, and to achieving more inclusive economies and societies.

The candidate will be affiliated with the听听whose Research Scholarship scheme has the aim of developing researchers of the highest standard who can work through the medium of Welsh.听

Eligibility and entry requirements

The minimum entry requirement is a 2:1 undergraduate degree or equivalent and ideally a Master鈥檚 degree with at least a Merit or equivalent. Exceptional candidates without a Master鈥檚 degree will be given due consideration. This call is open to UK/Home fees applicants only, and for candidates who must be a fluent Welsh speaker who is confident in speaking and writing through the medium of Welsh.

We are seeking applicants with a strong background in areas related to Accounting, Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Mathematics or Statistics. The applicant may be a recent graduate or an individual that has considerable (public or private) financial sector work experience. It is desirable for the applicant to be proficient in statistical techniques and data analysis. However, a research training programme will be offered in the first year of study, which will include quantitative techniques.

The Biased Blame Game: Understanding why we blame others for our own mistakes in cooperative settings

Dr. Paul Rauwolf
Closing date: May 31, 2024

Applications are invited for a three-year fully funded PhD studentship within the School of Psychology and Sport Science, 欧美性爱片. The studentship covers the full cost of tuition fees for PhD students, plus a maintenance stipend (approx. 拢19,237 per annum for 3 years) as well as a generous research allowance. The studentship can commence any time between October 2024 and January 2025, but with a preference for an October 1st start date.

Project:
Our ability to cooperate with each other is one of humanity鈥檚 greatest evolutionary and societal successes, allowing groups to achieve more than they could individually. However, cooperative interactions are often fragile, and can easily break down due to misperceptions. Research has shown that individuals particularly struggle to cooperate with others in uncertain environments, where it is difficult to assess who is to blame for the break-down of cooperation. In such cases, individuals tend to biasedly redirect blame away from themselves. This is problematic because it further injures the chances of a successful cooperative interaction. If individuals inaccurately blame others for their own uncooperative behaviour, then everyone involved is less likely to cooperate, but if individuals accurately blame themselves for missteps, then behaviour can be altered, improving the outcomes for all parties involved.

This project seeks to understand when and why we biasedly blame others more than ourselves even when it negatively impacts us. We will also seek to find ways to reduce this bias, in order to help individuals improve their outcomes in uncertain, social environments.
To do this, we will use behavioural economic, cooperative games to evaluate how individuals ascribe blame under uncertainty. Our experimental designs will be informed by game theoretic models of cooperative behaviour (as such, some knowledge of game theory is desirable). The project will involve building both online and in-person experiments using Qualtrics (as such, some knowledge of Javascript and HTML will be helpful). If the applicant is interested, there is also scope for building agent-based models to better understand how biasedly blaming others impacts cooperation in social networks.

Supervision:
If successful, you will be supervised by Dr. Paul Rauwolf, a Lecturer in the Department of Psychology at 欧美性爱片. Dr. Rauwolf received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bath. He then worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Mathematics Institute at the University of Oxford. He completed his postdoctoral work in Psychology at 欧美性爱片.
Broadly, Dr. Rauwolf seeks to better understand and improve how individuals make decisions in uncertain, social environments. He is particularly interested in environmental psychology and improving sustainable / cooperative behaviours in complex, social environments. Given Dr. Rauwolf鈥檚 diverse background in computer science, mathematics, and psychology, his lab uses a combination of experimental psychology, behavioural economics, machine learning, and computational modelling to better understand biases in social decision-making.

Requirements:
Essential requirements:
鈥⑻ 听First or upper second class undergraduate degree in psychology, economics, computer science or a cognate subject.
鈥⑻ 听A strong work ethic and genuine enthusiasm for social decision-making.
鈥⑻ 听The ability to work both independently and cooperatively.
鈥⑻ 听The ability to communicate effectively, with evidence of strong scientific writing skills.
鈥⑻ 听A willingness to learn statistical techniques in R.

Desirable qualities:
鈥⑻ 听A masters level qualification in psychology, economics, computer science, or a cognate subject.
鈥⑻ 听Experience designing and running human experiments, either in the lab or online.
鈥⑻ 听Knowledge of game theory, decision-theory or behavioural economics.
鈥⑻ 听Experience analysing experimental data, using R or a similar statistical tool. 听
鈥⑻ 听Programming skills. As many of the projects will be written for online participants, knowledge of Qualtrics, HTML or JavaScript would be helpful. 听
鈥⑻ 听Knowledge of, or experience with, online participant pools such as Prolific.
鈥⑻ 听Some knowledge of computational modelling and predictive analytics, such as cross-validation or evolutionary agent-based models.

Research Environment:
Dr. Rauwolf鈥檚 lab currently consists of 2 other PhD students and several MSc and BSc project students. The lab is always running several projects simultaneously and meets regularly to collaborate and discuss the various projects. The lab has expertise in behavioural economics, programming, and advanced statistical techniques. You will join a collaborative group that helps each other gain the skills required to succeed.

Project

Speech production is one of the most complex processes that humans perform. In just one second of speech, we can produce approximately ten speech sounds that require the precise coordination of over 100 muscles. However, producing fluent speech is not always easy. Dr Wiltshire鈥檚 research aims to understand how the brain controls speech production in typical and diverse speaker populations. Her research addresses the entire speech production system, from the brain to the vocal tract. To do this, she takes an interdisciplinary approach, often combining tools from cognitive neuroscience (brain MRI, brain stimulation) and phonetics (vocal tract MRI, electromagnetic articulography, acoustics). For example, a recent project combined Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) with techniques that record the movement of the articulators (lips, tongue, velum) to understand the role of the Supplementary Motor Area in rhythmic speech production in people who stutter and people who do not stutter (Wiltshire & Hoole, 2022; .

Project proposals can be developed in two ways:

  1. The project is developed by the applicant with support from Dr. Wiltshire. Any topic within the scope of speech production is considered.
  2. The applicant expresses an interest in a specific project that has already been developed by Dr. Wiltshire. This project involves using MRI and brain stimulation to study sensory-motor control in speech production.

Project

Women are underrepresented in sports science research; only 34% of participants are women and only 6% of scientific articles exclusively investigate women compared to 31% in men. Although there is limited research in women, emerging data indicates there may be many differences between men and women in physiological responses to sport and exercise. As such, the data we gleaned from research in men, may not apply to women. Additionally, menstrual cycle symptoms, such as abdominal pain, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, heavy menstrual bleeding, sleep disturbance, and psychological stress, are major factors impacting the wellbeing, training and performance of female athletes. This PhD aims to examine how the menstrual cycle and related symptoms, and contraceptive use, impact health and performance.

As a PGR you will join the听Institute for Applied Human Physiology,听and receive research and laboratory skills training in human and exercise physiology, biochemical, questionnaire and interviewing techniques to monitor physiological, immunological, cardiorespiratory, metabolic, and psychological responses.
