  (MERI) Atmospheric Ice Nucleation of biological particles
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping, Prof M Gallagher
Application Deadline: 6 February 2019
The formation of ice in natural clouds occurs at temperatures below 0 °C. Pure liquid water drops do not freeze until temperatures are as low as -36 °C, or so, due to the homogeneous nucleation of ice.
  Crystal shape alteration using combined wet-milling and temperature cycling approaches
  Dr T Vetter
Applications accepted all year round
Crystallization is the most frequently used separation process in the manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), where it provides purification and form control and enables isolation of the API as solid particles that can be further processed into a formulated drug product.
  Micro- and nanoplastics: the fate and the impact on marine life
  Dr S Yang, Dr W Norton
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
By 2015, humans had generated 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics, 6.3 billion tons of which had already become waste. Of that waste total, only 9 percent was recycled, 12 percent was incinerated and 79 percent accumulated in landfills or the natural environment.
  Contact models for DEM simulations of non-spherical particles
  Dr K Hanley, Dr J Blackford
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The discrete element method (DEM) is a simulation tool originally developed in the 1970s. DEM allows complex systems of particles to be modelled, enabling analysis of the particle-scale mechanisms that underlie the complexity of the overall material response.
  Characterisation of particles from non-exhaust sources
  Prof I Williams, Dr N Symonds
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Each year, 7 million deaths globally and 40,000 in the UK are caused by air pollution.
  The formation of ice in clouds and the impact on climate
  Prof K Carslaw, Dr B J Murray
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The aim of this PhD project is to understand how ice-nucleating particles in the atmosphere affect clouds and climate. The formation of ice in clouds is one of the least well-understood aspects of the Earth’s climate system.
  Modelling movement of large sediment in river flows
  Prof J Hooke, Dr J Cooper
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Motivation and wider context. In high magnitude flood events very large particles, including boulders and large pieces of masonry can be carried, especially in ephemerally-flowing channels of dry climates.
  Phase behaviour and Dynamics of Colloidal Liquid Crystals of Board-like Particles
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Dr A Patti, Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round
Colloids consist of particles dispersed in a solvent, whose size, between 10 nm and 10 μm, is small enough to neglect sedimentation with respect to Brownian motion.
  Non-exhaust particulate matter from road traffic
  Prof R Harrison, Dr Z Shi
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Our group has been at the forefront of work internationally to characterise and quantify non-exhaust emissions from road traffic1.
  Particle Dynamics in Thermally Driven Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round
We propose an investigation into a variety of dynamics and effects produced by the interaction of particles with fluid flow driven by a temperature gradient.
