  Development of novel energy-efficient integrated systems for building operation optimization (Application Ref: SF19/EE/ABE/Zingre)
  Dr K Zingre, Prof B Kumar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The climate change and the rising living standard have significantly increased the electricity consumption by the building sector worldwide from 26% in 1980 to 54% in 2010, and predicted to further increase at alarming rate to 84% in 2050 (Zingre et al., 2017).
  Building energy efficiency triage ecosystem SEBE0031
  Dr J Bros Williamson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retrofitting of the existing building stock has a significant role to play in a national decarbonisation strategy. Despite improvement in building regulations, the UK’s housing stock has some of the oldest and least efficient buildings in Europe.
  UCL Bartlett: PhD studentships in Digital Building Services Engineering or Sustainable Facilities and Asset Management

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital Building Services Engineering with Skanska Facilities Services Ltd and Modus Services Ltd based at Ministry of Defence Main Building London.
  Climate Responsive Building Design
  Prof D Mumovic
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD will focus on developing climate responsive building design hierarchies of strategic decision making to suit different climatic zones, to identify the relative impacts of design and operational decisions in relation to seasonal and diurnal variations in sunlight, temperature, air movement, and precipitation.
  VC International Scholarship in Human-Building Interaction in a Changing Climate (HBICC): Delivering Resilience in Performance, Wellbeing, Health and Safety (eligibility criteria apply)
  Research Group: Complex Systems
  Dr J A Gwilliam, Dr P Eslambolchilar
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

Buildings account for about one third of greenhouse gas emissions globally. exacerbated by poor maintenance, building systems inefficiencies and other human activities.
  Design and Synthesis of Bifunctional 3-D Building Blocks for Use in Medicinal Chemistry
  Prof P O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in collaboration with Professor Mike Waring (Newcastle University). Background. Fragment-based methods are established for the identification of lead compounds in drug discovery.1 Fragments are small molecules (molecular weight ~150-300) which bind weakly to proteins.

PhD Type

Infectious disease pandemics are brutal killers in human history. The recent COVID-19 outbreak in China has killed over 2.4K people globally, and more than 78K people are infected across 28 countries (As of 22th Feb 2020).
  Adaptive design of the UK dwellings to reduce summertime overheating
  Dr I Wong, Prof A Klemm, Dr D McCormick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-20-001-ILWSF. Background. The traditional UK dwellings are generally designed with small area of façade openings and building facades with lower U-values to reduce heat losses in winter.
  Development of a bio-based membrane for application as weather barrier in the building industry
  Prof P Blanchet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Weather barriers are membranes used in the building wall envelopes. Their function is to prevent water (and wind) from entering the vulnerable sections of walls and roofs, while allowing moisture to escape to the outside.
