  Processing and characterisation of ceramics for nuclear applications
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Prof P Xiao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful candidate(s) will join the ceramic coating group in School of Materials, University of Manchester to develop ceramics for nuclear applications.
  EngD Studentship Opportunity in the Oxidation & Environmental Degradation of non-oxide ceramics.
  Prof R Dorey, Dr M Whiting
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-oxide ceramics have been selected as a future material system in a next generation Dyson product line. The properties of this material include good thermal conductivity, low thermal expansion, and good thermal shock resistance.
  Controlled and uniform cooling of steel and ceramics products to reduce residual stresses and defects.
  Prof H Jouhara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful applicant will look closely into the current existing methods of controlled cooling of products derived from the ceramic and steel production facilities.
  New light-responsive energy harvesters for energy storage
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy harvesting will play a central role to offset the variability of renewable energy sources and achieve decarbonisation in global economies.
  Mechanics of Advanced Materials: the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions - Ref: VS2UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
  Development of novel sensors for measuring porewater pressures in soils (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Dr J Mendes, Dr M Lim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High capacity tensiometers (HCT) are sensors used in geotechnical engineering to monitor positive and negative porewater pressures (soil suction) up to 2MPa in soil infrastructures and for the study of unsaturated soils in the laboratory.
  PhD in glass and glass-ceramic materials for solar energy and environmental applications
  Prof Paul Bingham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD candidates with a passion for materials science, engineering, physics and/or chemistry, applied to the fields of energy and the environment, should apply.
  EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from qualified graduates for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the area of Advanced Biomedical Materials.
  Dynamics of Foam Flow Through Processing Equipment
  Prof M Barigou
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas-liquid foams are structured two-phase fluids in which gas bubbles are separated by interconnecting thin liquid films, and the volume fraction of the continuous liquid phase is small in dry foams but can be substantial in wet foams.
  Investigation of the bonding mechanisms in agglomerates and compacts to enable next-generation formulated product design
  Dr A Ingram
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Powder compaction is widely used in several industrial sectors, such as ceramics, batteries, detergents, food, and pharmaceuticals.
  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Long-term behaviour of nuclear wasteforms under geological disposal conditions
  Dr AH Mir
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geological disposal of nuclear waste is an internationally accepted methodology for nuclear waste management and pursued by the United Kingdom.

  Prof D Walker, Prof T.L. McCluskey
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise optics underpin diverse applications, including remote-sensing from space, astronomy, laser-physics, medical-diagnostics, security & defense.
  Assessing stored energy due to radiation effects in nuclear waste forms
  Dr M Patel, Dr F Blanc
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a graduate to join the research group of Dr. Maulik Patel (Department of Mechanical, Materials and Aerospace, University of Liverpool) in a project in collaboration with Dr.
  Development of electroceramics for next generation high capacitance Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors
  Prof D Sinclair, Dr J Dean
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity for an EPSRC-iCASE funded PhD studentship to work with the Functional Materials and Devices group at the University of Sheffield in collaboration with AVX Ltd to develop new and/or modified electroceramics for applications in Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs).
