  Digital Hydraulic System Control - investigating novel digital switched hydraulic converters and their feasibility via analytical modelling and experimental validation.
  Dr M Pan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
In most hydraulically powered systems, the speed and/or force of a load are controlled using valves to throttle the flow and thus reduce the hydraulic pressure.
  Physiological and molecular characterisation of altered root hydraulic properties in rice due to allelic variation or genetic manipulation of plasma membrane intrinsic proteins (PIPs, a class of aquaporins)
  Prof A Price
Applications accepted all year round
A cluster of three PIPs on chromosome 7 of rice are all candidate genes for a drought avoidance locus. These genes are highly expressed in roots and thought to have a major role in root hydraulic conductance.
  Secondary currents in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Secondary currents in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals play a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Very large scale motions (VLSM) in rough-bed open-channel flows and their effects on hydraulic resistance
  Prof V Nikora, Dr S Cameron
Applications accepted all year round
Turbulence in open-channel flows such as rivers and canals plays a key role in transport of momentum, sediments, nutrients, and other substances.
  Controls on the hydro-geomorphological impact of the 2017 El Niño Costero floods, northern Peru.
  Dr A Russell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project is part of the ONE Planet DTP. Find out more here. https://research.ncl.ac.uk/one-planet/. Background.
  The Impact of Thermal Plumes on Aquifer Properties and Groundwater Quality
  Dr U Ofterdinger, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
"Global energy needs are steadily rising with a predicted increase of 45% within the next 15 years. In the long-term, sustainable energy is hoped to connect economic growth to increased social equity while preserving natural resources in line with the UN sustainable development goals.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round
Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Employing artificial intelligence & machine learning to optimise flood control for 21st Century cities
  Prof O Bokhove
Applications accepted all year round
Summary Rational and unique mathematical strategies for active flood control will be developed and tested in the design of flood alleviation schemes for UK rivers, such as Yorkshire’s Aire and Calder Rivers, based on increasing flood-plain storage capacity.
  4 year Engineering Doctorate (EngD): Advanced manufacturing methods for aerospace actuation systems (sponsored by Collins Aerospace)
  Dr M Marshall, Dr P Crawforth
Applications accepted all year round
Start date. 1 September 2019. Stipend. £18,000 pa plus tuition fees paid at Home/EU rates. Project details.
  Isotopic characterisation of methane and ethane within groundwater aquifers: assessing sources, flow pathways and the impact of shale gas exploration in the Vale of Pickering, UK
  Dr A Smith
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
Hydraulic fracturing (‘fracking’) is highly controversial with public concerns over environmental impacts, not least the risks to groundwater.
