Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in applying physics to situations that could benefit medical diagnosis?. Terahertz (10^12 Hz, THz) pulsed imaging is a new technique with high resolution (about 20 μm) and has only emerged recently as a potential new clinical tool for medical imaging.
  Trust In Autonomous Vehicles
  Prof J Giacomin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Problem Statement. Several recent research studies have suggested that “lack of trust” is one of the major factors which is slowing the commercial introduction of autonomous vehicles.
  Digital Design and Fabrication of Low Carbon Flexibly Formed Concrete Structures Reinforced With Natural Fibres
  Dr S Spadea, Dr T Dyer
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020
