Supervision

PhD and post-doctoral opportunities

Dr Mulvihill is always keen to supervise high quality PhD or post-doctoral researchers.  Please contact him at daniel.mulvihill@glasgow.ac.uk if you are interested in current opportunities related to materials engineering, solid mechanics, experimental and computational mechanics, composite materials or tribology. He is also happy to work with self funded doctoral students and support scholarship and fellowship applications.  

 

Current PhD Opportunities:

1. Tribology of nano and microstructured surfaces

2. Processing and/or structural integrity of composite materials

Teaching

Dr Mulvihill was College Lecturer at Hertford College, Oxford for the academic years 2009/10 and 2010/11 covering undergraduate mechanics courses (statics, dynamics, vibrations and strength of materials).

Subsequently, at Cambridge, Daniel was tutor for the third year Machine Design course for the academic year 15/16

Dr Mulvihill presently teaches on the third year Mechanics of Solids 3 and fourth year Mechanics of Solids 4 courses at Glasgow.
