  PhD studentship opportunity in enhancing the performance of ceramic armour and protective coatings
  Prof R Dorey, Dr M Whiting
Applications accepted all year round
The performance of ceramic armour and protective coatings is critically dependent on the interface between the ceramic and the underlying substrate.
  Modelling reactions between Ti-alloys and ceramic shells in turbine component castings
  Dr N Warnken, Prof S Blackburn, Prof N Green
Applications accepted all year round
Future jet engines will have to be lighter and more fuel efficient. A major contribution to this will come from creating lighter rotating parts, which are still being able to endure extremely high temperatures.
  Analysis of novel metal-ceramic composites with graded microstructures
  Prof M Kashtalyan, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round
Metal-ceramic composites offer many advantages over monolithic metals and their alloys such as high specific stiffness and strength, better creep, fatigue and wear resistance, and good thermal properties.
  Development of innovative additives targeting glazed ceramic surfaces
  Prof P Fryer, Dr Z Zhang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
EPSRC supported PhD with Integrated Studies. Development of innovative additives targeting glazed ceramic surfaces. Company title(s).
  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.
  Glass to ceramic transition in sodium solid-state electrolytes
  Prof P Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Glass-ceramics are special materials, whose composition and microstructure can be tailored to deliver the properties of both glass and polycrystalline materials, which include a low coefficient of thermal expansion, optical transparency, machinability and biocompatibility.
  Low Temperature Sintering of Monolithic Ceramics and Ceramic Composites – PhD Engineering (Funded) Ref: 3259
  Prof S Zhang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences, is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in March 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  PhD studentship in ceramic anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells
  Dr S Sengodan, Prof S Skinner
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
Applications are invited for a three-year PhD studentship on ceramic anode materials for solid oxide fuel cells, available at Imperial College London starting in October 2019.
  Synthesis of non-oxide ceramic powders via routes that suit industry
  Prof J Binner
Applications accepted all year round
This project is funded by the UK’s Ministry of Defence and involves Kennametal and Novamat, two UK companies, and the University of Birmingham.
  Damage and Fracture in Nuclear and Aerospace Ceramic-Matrix Composites over Multiple Length-scales
  Dr D Liu, Prof M Kuball
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Ceramic-Matrix Composites (CMCs) are considered to be prime structural materials to replace metals for high temperature applications such as accident tolerant fuel cladding in nuclear reactor core (post Japanese Fukushima accident) and aerospace gas-turbine engine components of the immediate future.
