  New metasurfaces for acoustic control - meta-atoms as passive resonant elements to yield highly directional radiation or detection of sound
  Prof A P Hibbins, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof Alastair P Hibbins, Prof J Roy Sambles. External partner. Dr Ben Hodder (QinetiQ). ***. The ability to emit or receive sound with directional dependence is of great relevance to acoustic imaging and navigation applications.
  Making the world sound better – acoustic metamaterials for manipulating sound in air and underwater
  Prof A P Hibbins, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship is part of the UK’s Centre of Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2) based in the Departments of Physics and Engineering on the Streatham Campus in Exeter.
  Acoustic Black Holes for Noise and Vibration Control
  Dr J Cheer
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Jordan Cheer. Co-supervisor Prof Steve Daley. Project description. A fully funded industrial studentship is available for a high-quality student to work in the area of acoustic black holes for noise and vibration control.
  Nonlinear acoustic-gravity wave theory
  Dr U Kadri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the linear theory, gravity waves are virtually decoupled from acoustic (compression) waves, because the propagation speed of acoustic waves far exceeds the maximum phase speed of gravity waves.
  Virtual acoustic simulation for auralisation
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Auralisation is the audio equivalent of visualisation – the accurate rendering of an acoustic environment such that the listener perceives the result as being natural or real.
  Mathematical analysis of acoustic wave scattering in finite metamaterials.
  Dr A Kisil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns analytical methods of wave scattering problems in metamaterials with edges. Research work on the project will involve new mathematical analysis of the wave propagation problems and implementation of the developed analytical methods.
  Natural porous vibro-acoustic media
  Dr S Oberst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV) was formed in 2017 and now has nine full time academic staff. The Centre is based at Tech Lab, which is a brand new research led facility that is close to the airport in Sydney.
  Realistic Underwater Acoustic Propagation Model for Medium Access Control Protocol Evaluation
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful prediction of the performance of medium access control protocols is dependent on a realistic model of the underlying propagation channel.
  PhD or Masters’ position in building acoustics and mechanical metamaterials
  Dr A Hall, Dr George Dodd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in metamaterials and their potential to improve people’s living conditions? The Acoustics Research Centre at the University of Auckland is inviting applications from highly motivated students to participate in an exciting new research programme on acoustics and mechanical metamaterials for radically improving sound insulation.
  Quantum Optomechanical Ultrasound Sensing
  Prof Warwick Bowen, Dr G Harris
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. Quantum optomechanics explores the interaction between light and mechanical motion at a level where the quantised nature of light, or the zero-point fluctuations of motion, play a significant role.
  Advanced tracking methods and machine learning for multi-modal monitoring of fish behaviour
  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr P Kemp
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Professor Paul White, Prof Paul Kemp. Project description. This project will develop advanced tracking method for the analysis of fish behavior.
  Radiation of acoustic-gravity waves by an impacting object
  Dr U Kadri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When solid objects, such as an aircraft or meteorite, impact the water surface in the deep ocean they generate propagating compression-type waves known as acoustic-gravity waves (AGWs).
  Characterization and early detection of hydrogen embrittlement in offshore boltsusing Acoustic Emission - NSIRC228 PhD Studentship - sponsored by Lloyd’s Register
  Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The effect of hydrogen on steel has been the subject of several investigations due to its ability to cause corrosion and cracking which has costly consequences on several industries.
