  Biomaterials for design - utilising fungi to develop a thick mat-like mycelium for use as an alternative textile - SACI0008
  Dr S Vettese, Prof I Singleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. The textile industry is based largely on the use of cotton, leather and oil derived polymers and these industries are resource intensive and unsustainable.
  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].
  VC International Scholarship in Large-scale 3D Printing of Sustainable Indigenous Material
  Dr W Jabi
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large-scale robotic 3D printing has focused almost exclusively on concrete, a primary producer of greenhouse gases.
  The material and mechanical response of metals to multiple shock loading impacts
  Dr J D Painter, Dr G Appleby-Thomas
Application Deadline: 6 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into the behaviour of materials in extreme dynamic environments, such as an explosive blast, is of continuing interest and importance.
  Bamboo-Timber Composite Materials for Tall Buildings and Long Span Structures SEBE0033
  Dr J Zhang, Dr BD D'amico, Dr FP Pomponi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK and several other EU countries are the leading countries on developing advanced sustainable construction materials such as timber and engineered wood products.
  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.
  PHD in Miniaturised Cellulose Nanomaterial-based Antennas and Arrays Design and Performance Evaluation for Internet of Things applications. SEBE0029
  Dr C H See, Dr M Dorris, Dr D Sun, Prof H Yu
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advances in wireless networks and electronics have led to the emergence of Wireless Sensor networks (WSNs), which are considered to be one of the most important technologies that can revolutionize healthcare systems.
  Towards a self-healing hydrogen-powered fuel-cell: Fully funded PhD studentship in Engineering Department at Lancaster University, funded by the Leverhulme Centre for Material Social Futures Research and Engineering Department.
  Dr H Lin, Dr R Dawson, Prof M Büscher
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leverhulme PhD Training Centre for Material Social Futures brings together concepts and approaches from across the disciplines to help produce futures that people want and the world needs.
  Developing a Computer Aided Design Interface for Multi-Material Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing)
  Dr E Pei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The next generation of Additive Manufacturing technologies will utilise the combination of different materials at extremely small scales to produce multi-functional structures.
  Enhancing the material performance of medical devices fabricated using Additive Manufacturing
  Dr D Dowling
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (3D printing) is being increasingly being employed for product applications in both the medical device and aerospace sectors.
  Mechanical Properties of Interfaces in 3D Printed Single- and Multi-Material Parts
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacturing techniques can be seen as an important change in the manufacturing methodology as the final form is achieved through a bottom-up approach, via the addition of material in a layer-by-layer fashion.
  Developing novel coatings for improved performance of fasteners for dissimilar material joining applications - NSIRC245 PhD Studentship
  Ms H Stedman, Mr A Oliveira
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In a range of industrial sectors, multi-material constructions are used to optimise the performance of structures. In the transport sector, metal-to-carbon fibre reinforced polymers (CFRP) and steel-to-aluminium joints are seeing a dramatic growth in both R&D activity and commercial applications.
  Use of polymer concrete as a lining material for small diameter tunnels installed using Microtunnelling Machines
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trenchless technologies are used to install buried infrastructure without the need for open cut excavations. One such technique is microtunnelling; this uses microtunnelling machines to excavate the bore whilst the lining is traditionally installed via pipe jacking or auto-erecting segmental systems.
  PhD in Engineering: Defect Simulations and Material Growth of III-V Nanostructures – European Industrial Doctorate (DESIGN-EID)
  Dr V P Georgiev
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Information.
  Designing efficient search strategies for new material discovery in complex phase and data space
  Prof M J Rosseinsky, Dr J Claridge, Dr M Gaultois
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we search for higher-performance materials with a particular function, we need to explore systems that contain more chemical elements, referred to as more complex phase space.
