  Buildings as a global carbon sink: investigating realistic pathways addressing the temporal mistmatch between supply and demand SEBE0027
  Dr FP Pomponi, Dr BD D'amico, Dr G Fountas
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The built environment contributes some 40% to global greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, and in similar shares to the consumption of finite resources and the generation of waste flows [1].
  Global potential for bamboo in construction: a dynamic flow analysis and impact assessment coordinating long-term production and consumption SEBE0034
  Dr FP Pomponi, Dr BD D'amico, Dr J Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many countries have committed to net-zero carbon targets in the coming decades, and the world as a whole must embark on an unprecedented carbon reduction journey to address the current climate crises and keep global warming below 1.5 degrees C.
  Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to Deliver Enhanced Through-Life Nuclear Asset Management
  Prof S McArthur, Dr B Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Strathclyde’s Advanced Nuclear Research Centre (ANRC) is offering a 3 year fully funded PhD in the field of industrial informatics, to investigate the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) techniques to Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) in the nuclear industry.
  Enhancing the performance, condition, safety and reliability of offshore wind energy infrastructure systems using optimal design, inspections, structural health monitoring and structural control
  Dr P Omenzetter, Dr P Dunning, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbines are exposed to frequent structural damage increasing the cost of wind energy generation. To drive these costs down, this project will develop new automated methods for detection of structural damage to wind turbines by examining vibration responses measured by sensors attached to the structure.
  Smart stone construction technology
  Dr A Tomor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current civil engineering projects, for example housing or infrastructure are primarily led by construction costs and speed. Low-cost construction however often results in low-quality with high maintenance costs and large environmental impact during the life of the structure.
  Recycling of thermoset resins via the development of a solvent trigger de-curing system - NSIRC180 PhD Studentship - Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation
  Dr G Durand, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most composites use thermosetting resins (>50%), there is currently no commercial recycling process for thermoset composites.
  Broad spectrum antiviral and antibiofilm materials to treat hospital acquired infections
  Dr RA D'Sa
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications will close as soon as a suitable candidate is found.
  Integration of environmental signals in plants
  Prof G Bassel, Dr M Gifford
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diversity of signals from the environment to make decisions during their life cycle. This project will focus on understanding how multiple signals from the environment are integrated to control seed dormancy.
  Understanding and engineering virus resistance in plants
  Dr J Walsh, Dr G Teakle, Dr D Hackenberg
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant viruses are responsible for approximately half of the emerging plant diseases worlwide and cause severe yield losses in commercial crops.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  EPSRC DTP Hub – Sustainable Plastics

Funding Type

PhD Type

These studentships will be part of Cardiff University's interdisciplinary doctoral training hub in sustainable plastics. The manufacture, performance and end-of-life (recycling, environmental fate) of polymers (plastics) is an area of intense current interest and importance.
