Recommended Posts


Department of Mechanical Engineering


Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Tribology, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The post is supported by a bursary and fees (at the UK/EU student rate) provided by Caterpillar inc.


The work is aimed at improvements to the durability of mechanical powertrains and specifically to the effects of lubricant properties and composition. It consists of experimental investigations into the underlying mechanisms by which lubricants affect the durability of contacting mechanical components.


Travel to the United States for short periods will be a necessity.

You will be an enthusiastic and self-motivated person who meets the academic requirements for enrolment for the PhD degree at Imperial College. You will have a background in Mechanical or Chemical Engineering, Materials Science or a related field and an enquiring and rigorous approach to research together with a strong intellect and disciplined work habits. Training will be given in tribology and investigative techniques including metallography, electron microscopy and surface topography. You will become a skilled communicator, comfortable in an international situation.


For further details of the post contact Dr Andy Olver a.v.olver@imperial.ac.uk -44 (0) 20 594 7066. Interested applicants should send an up-to-date curriculum vitae to Dr Olver.
