  Investigating fatigue damage mechanisms in welds and in additively manufactured parts by cross-referencing 3D defect distributions from CT scans, stress conditions and actual crack path
  Prof M Brochu, Prof R Tovo
Application Deadline: 25 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project takes part partially in both Canada and Italy!. The project, "Investigating fatigue damage mechanisms in welds and in additively manufactured parts by cross-referencing 3D defect distributions from CT scans, stress conditions and actual crack path" is part of project FATCO 2019.
  Development of Convolutional Neural Networks and Associated Error Estimation Techniques for Vertebral Segmentation in Axial Computed Tomography Image Slices
  Dr N Thacker, Dr P Bromiley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis is a common skeletal disorder that increases the risk of fractures and causes significant morbidity and mortality. Vertebral fractures (VFs) are often an early manifestation of osteoporosis but are significantly under-diagnosed in clinical practice.
  Does Stripping Topsoil of Carbon Cause Irreversible Physical Degradation?
  Prof P Hallett, Prof J Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe soil degradation is prevalent across much of sub-Saharan Africa, driven primarily by the depletion of carbon from the soil.
  The diagnosis and assessment of respiratory disease with a novel technology
  Dr R Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diagnosis, assessment and management of many respiratory diseases (e.g. chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; COPD), is largely dependent on traditional lung function tests such as spirometry.
  Taphonomy of the exceptionally-preserved Cambrian Chengjiang biota, Yunnan Province, China: how fossilization affects ecological and evolutionary interpretations
  Prof S E Gabbott, Prof M Williams
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Geol Gabbott 2020. The Early Cambrian Chengjiang biota in Yunnan Province, China preserves the fossilized remains of a diverse and ecologically complex early Cambrian marine ecosystem.
  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 24 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  Numerical Modelling of 3D Microstructure of Nonwovens
  Dr E Demirci, Dr A Gleadall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of the proposed project is to develop a novel scheme for the analysis of a 3D orientation distribution function (ODF) of fibers in nonwovens using non-destructive testing methods, such as, X-ray micro computed tomography (CT), and to benchmark nonwovens analytically & graphically based on their 3D fibrous structure.
  (MRC DTP) Multimodal data-based modelling of placental function for precision diagnostics in obstetrics medicine
  Dr I Chernyaysky, Prof O Jensen, Dr E Johnstone
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The placenta is responsible for sustaining fetal life and enabling fetal growth during pregnancy. It is characterised by a unique complex arrangement of densely packed fetal blood vessels drawing oxygen and nutrients from maternal blood.
  Computer-aided Detection of Osteoporotic Vertebral Fractures in Clinical Images Using Convolutional Neural Network Constrained Local Models (CNN-CLMs)
  Dr P Bromiley, Prof T Cootes, Dr EP Kariki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis is a common, degenerative skeletal disorder that increases the risk of fractures and causes significant morbidity and mortality.
  Does Histone Deacetalyse Inhibition Reduce Atherosclerosis and Stroke Risk (PhD only) 
  Prof H Markus
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Cambridge Stroke Group led the identification of the HDAC9 (histone deacetalyse 9) gene as a risk factor for stroke. The association is specific for large artery stroke due to atherosclerosis.
