Training in Upscaling particle Systems: Advancing Industry across Length-scales

Welcome to TUSAIL Training Program

TUSAIL is an Innovative Training Network funded by Horizon 2020 which comprises 16 academic and industrial partners in total, led by the University of Edinburgh. TUSAIL stands for “Training in Upscaling particle Systems: Advancing Industry across Length-scales”. Over the course of four years, from the beginning of the project in March 2021, TUSAIL will train 15 early-career researchers to meet industry’s requirements for highly skilled staff in the multi-disciplinary field of upscaling industrial particle processes. The reliable, validated simulation methodologies and tools developed in TUSAIL will be disseminated to industry, enabling quantitative predictions of large industrial processes which will be of value for design, operation and optimisation.

We are now recruiting researchers for 15 specific PhD projects which will begin around September 2021. If you are interested in doing a PhD with us, we invite you to take a look at the project descriptions and application procedure.
