  New light-responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Mr J Cavanagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project, we will develop new electrolytes with high ionic conductivity to increase the efficiency of fuel cells and batteries.
  Programming anisotropy into responsive soft materials
  Prof JR Stokes, Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to develop new kinds of soft nanomaterials using our recent discovery of liquid crystal hydroglass phase in suspensions of nanocellulose colloidal rods.
  Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence for application in Organic Light-emitting Diodes displays
  Prof D W Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic Light-emitting Diodes (OLEDs) have moved quickly from basic design concept to commercial displays and have gained popularity on the basis of the image quality possible, due in part to the better blacks than are possible with liquid crystal displays (LCDs).
  Super flexible electronics for wearable smart healthcare applications (Advert Ref: SF19/EE/MCE/LI)
  Dr Y Li, Dr B Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Micro/Nano sensors (MEMS/NEMS) and network technologies in future engineering domain have been significantly developed in the last decade.
  Understanding the formation and impacts of pockets of high ice crystal concentrations in mixed-phase layer clouds
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how small-scale heterogeneity observed within clouds – so called “pockets of high ice crystal number density” – affect mixed-phase layer clouds (see Lloyd et al, 2015).
  Atomic imaging in liquids
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Dr RG Gorbachev
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) is one of the few techniques able to image the structure and chemistry of a wide range of materials at the atomic scale.
  Role of structure in glass formation and mechanical properties
  Dr A Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In condensed matter physics, the structure of a material is integral to its nature. Glasses are not an easy fit in this model. At a fundamental level, it is not known how their structure reflects their formation or the properties they subsequently display.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability. It is common for medical professionals to recommend patients to use viscosupplementation, injection of artificial lubricant into arthritic joints, as a non-surgical intervention, for treatment of early stage arthritis.
  A 3-year PhD studentship in deep-learning assisted design of active hyperuniform materials
  Dr G Volpe
Application Deadline: 20 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This position is fully funded by the UCL-A*STAR Collaborative Programme via the Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Modelling and Materials Science (M3S CDT) at UCL.
  Photochemical synthesis of new drug-like scaffolds
  Dr C Smith, Dr A T Russell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Our laboratory is interested in the application of enabling technologies, such as continuous flow[1] and photochemistry,[2] for the synthesis of useful functional molecules such as drugs, agrochemicals and materials.
  Investigation of pharmaceutical crystallisation using small angle x-ray scattering
  Dr Y Chen, Prof J Sefcik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) offers various ways to characterize nanoscale structures of pharmaceutical crystal and large molecules.
