PhD opportunity on LBM - GPU computing at Liverpool-NTHU, UK
An exciting PhD opportunity is available at the Department of Power Mechanical Engineering (NTHU), 
And Department of Geography and Planning (UoL)
Project Title: Computational Efficiency and Better Understanding of River Deltas Using Lattice Botlzmann Method 
Supervisors:  Dr Nicoletta Leonardi (UoL); Prof Chao-An-Lin (NTHU)
Project Description:
River deltas are home to half a billion of people, are among the most productive ecosystem on earth, and constitute the main food source for many nations.
This project has the dual goal of:
i)                    Improving the computational efficiency of numerical methods for the model of coastal areas
by exploring the use of numerical techniques more suitable for parallel, and GPU computing;
ii)                  Investigating the influence of hydrodynamic, and turbulence characteristics on river deltas.
Potential candidates:
Suitable candidates include people with background in: Civil engineering; Mechanical engineering; Computer Science; Mathematics; Physics; Ocean science; similar;
We welcome and encourage diversity, and encourage any applicants from all qualified women and men, members of visible minorities, different nationalities, person with disabilities, etc.
Funding Notes:
This project is a part of a 4-year dual PhD programme between National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) in Taiwan and the University of Liverpool in England.
This PhD is partially funded. It is planned that students will spend time studying in each institution.
Both the University of Liverpool and NTHU have agreed to waive the tuition fees for the duration of the project.
Moreover, a stipend of TWD 10,000/month will be provided to cover part of the living costs.
When applying please ensure you Quote the supervisor & project title you wish to apply for and note
‘NTHU-UoL Dual Scholarship’ when asked for details of how plan to finance your studies.
