  Development and Applications of Diffraction Anomalous Fine Structure Technique
  Prof G Sankar
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Studentship. This position is fully funded by the UCL-Diamond Collaborative Programme. The student will be registered for a PhD at UCL where he/she will spend initially for a period at UCL and substantial amount of time during PhD at Diamond Light Source.
  Extending the use of time-resolved electron diffraction to perform pump-probe experiments for molecular species
  Dr D A Wann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Wann group has a time-resolved electron diffraction apparatus in York capable of time resolution of around 1 ps. We also use the Stanford ultrafast election diffraction set-up for 100 fs time resolution experiments.
  Mapping the Spatial and Temporal Progression of Enamel Biomineralisation using Synchrotron X-ray Diffraction
  Dr M Al-Jawad, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Human dental enamel formation begins in utero and for most teeth takes several years to complete. It is a complex biological, physicochemical process where mineralisation progresses heterogeneously in space and time.
  Reaching the diffraction-limit of acoustic imaging with autonomous underwater vehicles
  Dr A Hunter
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project team. Dr Alan Hunter (University of Bath), Dr Thomas Fickenscher (Helmut-Schmidt University) & Dr Holger Schmaljohann (Bundeswehr, Maritime Technology & Research).
  Non—invasive instrumentation development for particle accelerators on the basis of Cherenkov diffraction radiation
  Dr P Karataev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cherenkov diffraction radiation appears when a charged particle moves in the vicinity of and parallel to a dielectric interface. The intensity is proportional to the length of the radiator.
  Developing an Imaging-Diffraction Method for Corrosion and Steel Degradation Studies
  Dr A Matamoras Veloza, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project provides an excellent opportunity for doctoral training on corrosion and steel degradation as part of a collaborative work between the School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds and ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility, at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford.
  Protein ghost recognition using deep learning
  Research Group: Sustainable Electronic Technologies
  Prof A Brown
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof Andrew Brown. Project description. POETS (Partially Ordered Event Triggered Systems) technology is based on the idea of an extremely large number (millions) of small processing cores, embedded in a fast, bespoke, hardware, parallel communications infrastructure – the core mesh.
  Laser shock and shot peening induced surface nanocrystallisation
  Prof M Fitzpatrick, Dr V Janik, Dr W Yuefan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research in Singapore (A*STAR) are inviting applications from suitably qualified UK/EU/international graduates for one fully-funded PhD studentship for the project ‘Laser shock and shot peening induced surface nanocrystallisation’.
  Doctoral Student (m/f/d): The Microstructure and Phase Formation of Titanium Aluminide Alloys
  Dr F Pyczak
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht (HZG) operates an outstation at DESY in Hamburg and provides access to highly brilliant synchrotron radiation to its own researchers and guests within its German Engineering Materials Science Center (GEMS – http://gems.hzg.de).
  Mapping oxidation state and crystallisation dynamics in metal oxide thin films for catalysts and energy storage devices
  Prof A O'Mullane, Dr M Jones
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the heterogeneous chemical and structural changes that occur in thin metal oxide films when used as catalysts for water splitting to produce hydrogen is critical for the development of more efficient materials.
  Next-Generation Lithium-ion Cathode Materials
  Dr P Allan, Prof P Slater
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wide-spread electrification of vehicular transport is reliant on the development of batteries with high energy density which can extend the achievable range of electric vehicles.
  PhD studentship in Composite Electrodes for Sodium-ion Batteries
  Dr P Allan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sodium-ion batteries have potential cost and sustainability advantages over lithium-ion batteries, making them attractive in emerging applications such as large-scale energy storage for the electric grid.
  Improving design against fatigue
  Dr H Basoalto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fatigue life prediction in the aerospace components relies on fracture mechanics for relatively long cracks (>1mm). Nevertheless, most of the fatigue life is spent while the crack is relatively short (.
  Understanding amorphous explosives
  Prof CR Pulham, Prof C Morrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amorphous explosives offer a number of advantages in comparison to conventional (crystalline) explosives. They are generally safer, can be more powerful, and easier to mould and shape.
  Application of artificial intelligence to analysis of chemical and structural data
  Dr S Chong, Dr L Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Please note that this project will remain open until a successful candidate is found. The analysis of structural characterisation data is a time-consuming stage in the development of new functional materials.
