long distance PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 25 long distance PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Low-power long-range (LoRa) wireless sensor network for smart cities.

Wireless sensor network offers a more cost-effective, accurate and faster Internet of Things (IoTs) solution compared to traditional technologies, which require excessive labour and maintenance costs. Read more

Design and Modelling of DC/DC converters for HVDC tapping

These projects are open to students worldwide, but have no funding attached. Therefore, the successful applicant will be expected to fund tuition fees at the relevant level (home or international) and any applicable additional research costs. Read more

Exploitation of the shadowing-free very high Spectrum in the Millimetre waves (60 GHz or more) at longer distances in New Radio (NR) 5G

Proposed supervisory team. Dr Sufian Yousef. Theme. Smart cities, 5G Networks. Summary of the research project. There is a substantial amount of spectrum at very high frequencies, which makes it very attractive, but the engineering challenges are intense. Read more

Space-based constraints on UK ammonia emissions and air quality impacts

We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity, in the School of Earth and Environment, to undertake novel research targeting one of the major air quality challenges facing the UK – the ammonia problem! Ammonia (NH3) is emitted primarily from diffuse agricultural sources and difficult to quantify for legislative purposes. Read more

Alternative Earths and their habitability for complex life

This fully funded PhD place provides an exciting opportunity to pursue postgraduate research in Earth science and astrobiology. The list of ‘potentially Earth-like’ rocky exoplanets in the galaxy continues to grow, and recent instrumental advances are paving the way to the analysis of their atmospheric compositions. Read more

Numerical models for a new combustion era

Hydrogen will be, among the synthetic fuels, the preferable energy carrier able to address the spatial and temporal separation between energy production (renewable source) and consumption. Read more

Film Studies - Postgraduate Research Opportunities

Research degrees in Film Studies at Birmingham are supervised by faculty in the Department of Film and Creative Writing and in the Department of Modern Languages, which allows you to benefit from our interdisciplinary approach and breadth of expertise. Read more

Controlling beam dynamics in high-power X-ray FELs with novel magnets

X-ray Free-Electron Lasers (XFELs) are large-scale accelerator facilities generating radiation beams with intensity far exceeding that of any other available source of high-energy photons. Read more

Reconfigurable Surfaces for High-Efficiency RF Energy Harvesting

The objective of energy harvesting is to convert electromagnetic waves into usable direct currents that can be stored. A promising innovation in this field is the use of two-dimensional artificially engineered reconfigurable surfaces. Read more


Project description. Investigating axonal transport of mitochondria as a therapeutic target in Neurodegeneration. Applications are being invited for a 3.5-year Basic Science PhD Studentship, starting in October 2024. Read more
