12, International PhD Scholarship in School of Computing, Engineering and
Physical Sciences at UCL, UK

The University of Central Lancashire Announce International PhD Scholarship
in Modeling of the Fluid-Structure Interactions for Aero elastic Characterization of
Wind Turbine Blades, UK

Study Subject: Modeling of the Fluid-Structure Interactions for Aero elastic
Characterization of Wind Turbine Blades
Employer: The University of Central Lancashire
Level: PhD
Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for a full-time scholarship available in
the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences. The scholarship is tenable for
up to 3 years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to satisfactory progress] and is open to
international applicants only. UK/EU applicants are not eligible to apply. The scholarship will
provide £15000 towards the cost of the International tuition fee over 3 years.
  Manufacturing limitations and operational strains placed on wind turbine blades lead to
fatigue and a shortened working life. The advent of flexible, aero elastic blades (rather than
rigid forms) will offer advantages in increasing fatigue life but challenges in geometrical,
structural and aerodynamic characterization. Wind tunnel trials do not scale up well to real
life blades so that a fundamental understanding of the underlying physics is necessary if
innovative large scale flexible blades are to be modeled successfully.
Against this background, the main objectives are:
1. The development of structural dynamic and FEA models for the complete wind turbine
rotor or blades that can handle highly nonlinear effects e.g. from flexible blades with
complex laminated composite and composite sandwich skins and webs;
2.The development of advanced models on rotor and blade aerodynamics, covering full 3D
CFD rotor models, free wake models and improved BEM type models;
3. The advancement of computational mathematical models for the complex fluid-structure
interaction problems that play a critical role in wind-turbine blade design, providing also a
fundamental tool for a better understanding of the underlying physics;
4. To calculate the torque and thrust on the wind turbine generator under different wind
speed and rotor geometry and therefore to predict the material strength needed in different
environment and minimize the damage to the rotor.
5. To predict the rotor speed on varying wind speed, rotor geometry, and rotor load. And to
simulate both transient state and steady state motion of the rotor, finally optimize the
shape of the rotor blade and therefore maximize the power capacity.

26, International PhD Scholarship in the School of Psychology, University of
Central Lancashire, UK

University of Central Lancashire Funded International PhD Scholarship
in Psychological Effects of Rape on Male Survivors, UK

Study Subject: Psychological Effects of Rape on Male Survivors
Employer: The University of Central Lancashire
Level: PhD
Scholarship Description: Applications are invited for a full-time scholarship available in
the School of Psychology. The scholarship is tenable for up to 3 years for a PhD (via MPhil
route) [subject to satisfactory progress] and is open to international applicants only. UK/EU
applicants are not eligible to apply. The scholarship will provide £15000 towards the cost of
the International tuition fee over 3 years.
The aim of this PhD project is to build on previous work by investigating the psychological
effects of rape on men recruited from a range of settings, such as survivor‟s Internet
support groups. The first phase of this project will utilise a range of qualitative and
quantitative psychological measures to assess whether issues such as social support,
psychological intervention, and individual differences can predict which men suffer the most
detrimental psychological effects after rape. A particular aim of this phase will assess how
victim self-blame hampers recovery, and factors that may influence to what extent the
victim blames himself after rape. Such findings inform treatment services on how best to
offer help to survivors. Later phases of this project might compare male victim responses
with those of female victims; such work, somewhat surprisingly, is lacking, yet is timely and
very publishable. Investigating male rape from an international perspective would also be
extremely publishable.

With China‟s leaders calling for „innovations to enhance the international competitiveness
and influence of Chinese culture‟, and the US voicing fears of losing a global information
war, a competition between China and the West for economic and political authority is
starting to emerge, finding expression in a contest for cultural representation.
This research initiative will aim to work within the frame of debates on Western
representations of China and on China‟s efforts to counter misconceptions of the negative
impact of its rise, analyzing these new cultural contestations in the context of the changing
global power dynamics. From a broad overview of Western and Chinese cultural
representations of China, as it has emerged from subordination after 1949 to rise as an
international power in the world today, the research will focus especially on such
representations in Western and Chinese film/TV output since the 1990s. Highlighting
particular case studies, the work will explore continuities/discontinuities in Orientalist
reassertion and Chinese responses.

52, 2 PhD Scholarships – New Environmental Governance: Examining new
approaches to governing climate change and groundwater, Australia

The Legal Governance Concentration of Research Excellence (CORE)
the Macquarie Law School Macquarie University, call for Scholarship application
for two full time Macquarie University Research Excellence PhD Scholarships.
Study Subject: Law
Employer: Macquarie University
Level: PhD
Scholarship Description: Two outstanding doctoral candidates are sought to undertake
studies in either of the projects below. Both projects are focused on novel forms of
governance that seek to address two of the greatest environmental challenges facing
Australia and the international community: climate change and scarce groundwater
resources.

Climate Project: Given the continuing failure of governments and multilateral treaties to
deliver effective climate outcomes, this project investigates an emerging, but potentially
powerful new „actor‟ in climate governance regimes both in Australia and globally. These
new actors take the form of climate change civil society movements (eg „Get Up‟, „1 Million
Women‟, „350.org‟ and „1010‟). The project examines the circumstances under which these
new movements can shape law, policy and practice (eg direct action mechanisms, lobbying
and partnerships) to produce effective and legitimate climate outcomes. The project aims to
develop principles to guide these new movements to better influence climate law regimes
and deliver improved climate outcomes.

Groundwater Project: This project responds to the recent call for a „water reform revolution‟
to empower communities to collaboratively manage water buy-back and entitlements in
Australia. The project will examine the circumstances under which collaborative forms of
groundwater management are likely to be effective both as a standalone governance
approach and as a component of wider legal and regulatory systems. It aims to provide
necessary guidance and prescription to policy makers so they can deliver this „revolution‟
and mobilise collaborative groundwater governance to achieve improved environmental
outcomes for Australia.

The successful applicant will join an innovative team of researchers at Macquarie Law School
who are undertaking interdisciplinary research on contemporary issues related to legal
governance and public policy.

These scholarships are open to both domestic and international applicants, although only
one is currently available for an international student.
