  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.
  A fully coupled XFEM model for hydraulic fracturing in multi-phase porous media, Engineering – PhD (Funded)
  Dr A Javadi, Prof J Coggan
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. Engineering, Streatham Campus. The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in February 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  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.
  Quantifying patch-scale eco-hydraulic interactions in rivers
  Dr T Marjoribanks
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Reference number. CENTA18-LU10. Start date. October 1st 2019. Closing date. January 21st 2019. Interview date. Week beginning February 11th 2019.
  Prediction of proppant distribution during hydraulic fracturing process
  Dr M Manzari, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
Shale reservoirs are one of the important unconventional hydrocarbon resources, and play an increasingly significant role among energy resources worldwide.
  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.
  The hydraulic control of the rhizosphere on rainfall-induced fast-moving shallow landslides
  Prof A Tarantino
Application Deadline: 1 January 2019
Rainfall is a major triggering factor of shallow landslides. When heavy and/or prolonged rainfall events occur, water infiltrates into the slope causing pore-water pressures build-up.
  Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others?
  Dr R Brienen, Prof E Gloor, Dr D Galbraith
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Why are some trees more sensitive to climate than others? A study on the functional linkage of tree hydraulics and their sensitivity to climate.
  Modelling and assessment of diffusion processes of strontium-based bone fillers and its effect on human tissues
  Dr H Batchelor, Dr J Camilleri, Prof PR Cooper
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
Loss of bone can occur due to disease or trauma. From the dental and orthopaedic perspective, bone loss can occur following dental infections in non-vital teeth, infections after implant placement and trauma.
