  (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.
  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.
  Super-macro-particles to improve in Particle-in-cell codes.
  Dr J Gratus, Dr H Owen
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisor. Dr. Jonathan Gratus (Lancaster University) and Dr. Hywel Owen (Manchester University). A studentship is available from Oct 2019 on the development of the theory, computer coding and testing of an exciting new idea for improving the numerical simulation of charged particles.
  (A*STAR) Engineering of virus-like particles and novel multimeric assemblies as scaffolds for presentation of viral antigens
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr F Hayes
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will use structural vaccinology to investigate the potential for de novo engineering of large, synthetic macromolecular assemblies.
