Detailed Project Description

Centrosomes are the principal microtubule organising centres in animal somatic cells. They assemble the poles of the mitotic spindle, regulate cell polarity and movement, and form the base of primary cilia. Changes in the number of centrosomes and in centrosome stability are frequently seen in cancer or in senescent cells. Such changes can cause significant problems in mitosis and cause cell death or aneuploidy. This PhD project will explore how key centrosome structures are assembled and the molecular details of how they function after DNA damage and replicative senescence. Centrosomes are composed of one or two microtubule-based centrioles within a cloud of pericentriolar material. We will use reverse genetics and expansion microscopy to explore how key centriolar protein complexes ensure centriolar integrity and cohesion during the cell cycle and after genotoxic stress or cellular senescence.

University of Galway

Located in the vibrant cultural city of Galway in the west of Ireland, the University of Galway has a distinguished reputation for teaching and research excellence

For information on moving to Ireland please see www.euraxess.ie

Detailed Project Description

As wind turbines continue to evolve towards larger and more flexible configurations, the complexity of their aeroelastic behaviour becomes crucial. This necessitates the use of sophisticated high-fidelity modelling approaches to capture intricate physical details aiming for less conservative and more efficient designs. However, the computational expense of high-fidelity models hinder their applicability in real-life iterative design optimisation processes. To address this issue, reduced-order models offer a balanced solution between computational efficiency and accuracy.

This research aims to develop an efficient high-fidelity numerical tool using reduced order modelling techniques, able to capture the complicated nonlinear aeroelastic behaviour of wind turbine blades. This project will couple the geometrically exact beam model and CFD tools such as OpenFOAM to establish a high-fidelity aeroelastic analysis tool. Consequently, it will leverage deep learning techniques to develop efficient and accurate reduced-order models.

Funded by the College of Science and Engineering, this 4-year full-time structured PhD project offers an opportunity for the successful candidate to work under the supervision of Dr Pedram Masjedi. Through this project, the candidate will gain valuable expertise in aeroelasticity, Fluid-Structure-Interaction (FSI), and wind energy engineering.

Living allowance (Stipend): €22,000 per annum, for four years

University fees: The funding will cover university fees for four years.

Start date: September 2024

Academic Entry Requirements: First or Upper Second Class Honours degree and preferably Master’s degree in Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering, Mechanical, or closely related engineering disciplines.

We are seeking a strong, self-motivated, and enthusiastic candidate with prior experience in computational modelling of Fluid-Structure-Interaction (FSI) problems and/or aeroelasticity. A solid understanding of computational methods in fluid and structural dynamics and proficiency in programming and manipulating these methods using languages such as Python, Julia, MATLAB, Fortran, or C/C++  are highly desirable.

Demonstrated ability to conduct independent research and contribute to scientific knowledge in relevant fields and a track record of publishing research findings in peer-reviewed journals would be advantageous. In addition, the ideal candidates should possess exceptional interpersonal skills, demonstrating a strong ability to collaborate effectively within a multidisciplinary research team.

To Apply for the Scholarship: Applications should be submitted via email to Dr Pedram Masjedi (Pedram.Masjedi@universityofgalway.ie) and must include:

PHD FELLOWSHIP OPPORTUNITY Advancing on-farm management and treatment options for dairy soiled water

Background

Water quality and quantity are under rising pressure from agricultural activities that may cause overexploitation of natural waters and pollutants runoff. These stresses are also compounded by climate change effects. To address the complex challenges of agri-water management, this EU-funded project, entitled UNIVERSWATER, will adopt a ‘system of systems’ approach by developing and improving technologies designed to optimise water resources uses in a fully integrated way. A dedicated interdisciplinary and intersectoral consortium of 15 partners from six European countries will: a) develop innovative portable and in-situ sensors for a number of parameters and pollutants (salinity, nutrients, CEC, microbiological indicators), b) couple them with earth observation imaging and advanced explainable and robust artificial intelligence techniques, c) develop cost-effective, sustainable methods based on nature-based and technology-based solutions for water remediation at the point of need, and d) promote the adoption of the developed methods through pricing incentive provision. These technologies will be integrated into decision support systems (DSSs) that will be tested at three case studies, including one in Ireland which aims to tackle on-farm treatment of dairy soiled water, while others investigate the mitigation of soil salination through water reuse and the optimisation of fertiliser/pesticide application for freshwater preservation. Going beyond, UNIVERSWATER will upscale these local DSSs into a common platform where a suite of DSS tools can be adapted to different situations after being tailored to the local factors, thereby developing a modular, extensible and holistic universal DSS.

 

Working in collaboration with the UNIVERSWATER project partners, the successful PhD candidate will be tasked with designing, operating and evaluating a suite of water treatment technologies (which may include: solid separation techniques, nutrient attenuation phases, hybrid constructed wetlands, advanced oxidation processes, filtration systems, UV disinfection). Thereafter, they, along with colleagues, will be tasked with monitoring the performance of treatment systems for a range of water quality parameters (including nitrogen, phosphorus, organics and antibiotics), conducting experiments evaluating the reuse potential of the residual sludge from the system as fertiliser, and developing a DSS to guide recommendations on the operation of an optimised the hybrid constructed wetland and advanced oxidation processes.

 

Requirements

Applications are invited from graduates holding a first or upper second-class primary degree or equivalent or M.Sc. in a relevant discipline (Environmental Science, Environmental Engineering, Water Resource Management, Agricultural Science, etc.). The successful candidate should be practically minded and self-motivated.

 

Award

The PhD Fellowship is a joint research project between the Teagasc Animal & Grassland Research and Innovation Centre, Moorepark, and the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences and Civil Engineering at University of Galway. The student will be based at Teagasc Moorepark and will be registered at University of Galway, working under the direct supervision of Dr Pat Tuohy and Prof Owen Fenton (Teagasc) and Dr Alma Siggins and Prof Mark Healy (University of Galway). The Fellowship provides an annual stipend of €22,000 (excluding fees) tenable for 4 years.

 

Application Procedure

Applicants should submit a CV and covering letter detailing their qualifications and experience to Dr Pat Tuohy (patrick.tuohy@teagasc.ie) and Dr Alma Siggins (alma.siggins@universityofgalway.ie)
