  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).
  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.
  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.
  Image-Based Methods for the Dynamics of Ceramic Interfaces in Ballistic Armour Applications
  Research Group: Materials and Surface Engineering
  Prof F Pierron
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
The Ministry of Defence (MOD) Defence and Security PhD scheme has a current focus on ‘Novel Materials for Defence’. As part of this program, interfaces between armour ceramics and polymers/metals have been identified as key to improving the performance of ballistic armour for military personnel and vehicles.
  Development of Ultra High Capacity Tensiometers (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Prof J Mendes
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
The proposed research aims to develop Ultra High Capacity Tensiometers (UHCT) that can measure soil suctions in the range of 7-10MPa with the intent of overcoming existing limitations with high capacity tensiometers (HCT).
  Novel high temperature capable electromagnetic materials for Rolls-Royce
  Prof J Binner
Applications accepted all year round
This project is funded by the UK’s Ministry of Defence and involves Rolls Royce and the University of Birmingham. It is a PhD studentship that is focused on developing new materials that both possess specific electromagnetic properties and are also capable of withstanding high temperatures.
