  Multimodal imaging of airborne particulate matter (PM) pollution as a means of source apportionment
  Prof G Foster, Dr M Loxham, Dr R B Cook, Dr JA Milton
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Airborne particulate matter (PM) is a key risk factor for premature death (8.9 million per annum worldwide) and reduced quality of life due to a range of diseases of the respiratory and cardiovascular system, with growing evidence for roles in metabolic and cognitive impairments [1].
  New generation of brake pads – design and tribological testing (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/ZABIEGAJ)
  Dr D Zabiegaj
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road traffics and industrial processes that are well-known as exhaust emissions producers; however, released Particulate Matter (PM) originates also from a number of non-exhaust processes, brake and tyres, involving corrosion and mechanical abrasion.
  Fully Funded Public Health England PhD Scholarship: Use of advanced multi-cellular models of the human respiratory system to investigate the mechanistic effects of particulate and gaseous air pollutants
  Dr M Clift
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This scholarship is funded by Public Health England (PHE). Start date. January 2020. Subject areas. In Vitro Systems; In Vivo Models; Cell Biology; Cell Culture; Toxicology; Air Pollution; Particulate; NO2.
  Insights into eye disease: understanding the molecular basis of age-related macular degeneration
  Prof T Day, Dr S Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dysregulation of innate immunity has been implicated as playing a key role in the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) – a major form of blindness in the industrialised world (see [1-5]).
  The impact of air pollution on bacteria colonisation and virulence.
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof J Ketley, Prof P W Andrew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2014).
  Joint PhD with RWTH Aachen: A comparative study of engine performance and pollutant formation during diesel and dimethyl ether injection
  Prof M Brear
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compression ignition engines are likely to remain a dominant prime mover for the foreseeable future, particularly in heavy duty road transport, sea transport and power generation.
  Planting for silence: the role of domestic gardens in mitigating urban noise pollution
  Dr P.E. Osborne, Dr P White, Prof A Griffiths, Dr T Blanusa
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. According to the WHO, noise pollution is second only to ultra-fine particulate matter in its impact on human health.
  Developing new laser-based instruments to characterise optical properties of aerosol particles from road traffic
  Dr K Manfred, Dr D Carslaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road traffic remains among the most significant sources of particulate matter (PM) pollution in the UK. With the decline in tailpipe emissions, non-exhaust sources – including resuspended road dust and tyre and brake friction – of PM are becoming increasingly important.
  Understanding the impact of trace level sulfur dioxide on air pollution and climate
  Dr P Edwards, Dr J D Lee
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use a newly developed laser induced fluorescence instrument to investigate the chemistry of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and its role in atmospheric particle formation.
  Centres for Doctoral Training - 4 Year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year.
