  Designing peptide based hydrogels for 3D-bioprinting applications
  Research Group: Biomaterials
  Prof A Saiani
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Hydrogels have shown significant potential as scaffold of 3D cell culture and tissue engineering applications.
  A Single Particle Nanomechanical Model for Cold Sintering
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Prof B Derby
Application Deadline: 17 September 2019
Ceramic materials are often manufactured by sintering at high temperatures, an energy intensive process that can introduce defects during cooling from processing temperatures.
  Fabrication of ceramic coatings for next generation aeroengines
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Prof P Xiao
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
The successful candidate(s) will join large research team in School of Materials, University of Manchester to develop thermal and environmental barrier coatings for next generation aeroengines.
  Evaluating the structural integrity of nuclear materials by long duration neutron diffraction
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr K Yan
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
In nuclear reactor, structural components experience complex cyclic loading associated with start-up/shut-down and following electricity demand.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round
The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  Imaging damage and failure mechanisms in aerospace alloys using neutrons and high energy X-rays
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr E Jimenez-Melero, Prof X Zhou
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to apply complementary neutron & X-ray techniques, supported with advanced analytical electron microscopy, to image the microstructure evolution in real time at high temperatures (500ºC and above) and during monotonic and fatigue loading, simulating service conditions inside aeroengines.
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round
Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  Mechanistic Studies of Fatigue in Austenitic Stainless Steels in a Pressurised Water Reactor Primary Coolant
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr F Scenini, Dr J Fonseca, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Introduction. This project represents an exciting opportunity to work closely with Rolls-Royce in an active international research area and the Materials Performance Centre (MPC).
  Modelling environmentally assisted cracking in Ni-based superalloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr J Fonseca
Applications accepted all year round
Ni-based superalloys in aircraft engines are routinely subjected to temperatures in the range of 650-700oC during operating conditions.
  Understanding recrystallisation: atomistic simulations of defect-driven grain structure evolution
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr C Race
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
At the cutting-edge of technological development, we are placing ever more exacting demands on the performance of metallic components and so we need an ever increasing degree of control over the properties of our metallic materials.
