  Elasticity of geological and planetary materials using novel X-ray imaging
  Dr A Thomson, Prof J Brodholt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The structure and composition of the Earth’s deep interior cannot be directly measured, but instead must be inferred from seismic velocity data generated by Earthquakes.
  International Cotutelle PhD project: Self-diffusion in iron alloys at extreme conditions
  Dr O Lord, Prof S Clark
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project gives the candidate the opportunity to perform experimental research into the structure and chemistry of planetary interiors at two world class institutions, the University of Bristol (UK) and Macquarie University (Sydney Australia).
  Simulating Thermal Images for Spacecraft Navigation, Guidance and Rendezvous
  Dr I Martin, Dr K Edwards
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermal cameras responsive to frequencies in the infra-red range are being considered for future spacecraft landers and orbital rendezvous missions because they can provide information for autonomous navigation systems that may not be available in the visible light range.
  Autonomous cooperation of bio-inspired adaptable lightweight mobile robots
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Dr M A Post, Prof A M Tyrrell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In challenging planetary environments such as Mars, a diverse range of terrains must be traversed to deliver sensing instruments and achieve scientific goals.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Social impacts of decision-making processes under wildlife conservation conflicts in Scotland
  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
  Dr H Wheeler, Dr N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG), Global Sustainability Institute (GSI). https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/applied-ecology.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  PhD in Engineering: Diamond-based electronic devices for operation in extreme environments
  Dr D Moran, Prof I Thayne
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is based in the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow and will focus on developing nanoscale diamond-based electronic devices for operation in extreme (high and low) temperature and radiation intense environments.
  Tidal flows in extrasolar planets and stars
  Dr A Barker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since 1995 astronomers have discovered and partially characterised several thousand extrasolar planets. Many of these planets have masses similar to Jupiter’s, and orbit their host stars in only a few Earth days -- a fascinating class of planets that we refer to as hot Jupiters.
  Aerospace optical sensors (GE Aviation)
  Research Group: Photonic Systems Circuits & Sensors
  Dr C Holmes
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christopher Holmes, Prof Ling Wang. Project description. Sensors are crucial components for flight. In addition to providing information to the flight crew, they are increasingly providing information for Artificial Intelligence systems, in order to predict and thus avoid faults.
  Shared intelligence for machines in extreme environments
  Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Blair Thornton (FSI) & Jon Hare (Electronics and Computer Science). Project description. Understanding the Earth’s environmental frontiers - from planetary interiors to space - is essential for tackling global challenges and hazards, but they are inaccessible using conventional means.
  Theory and Simulations of Space Weather in the Earth’s Magnetosphere
  Dr AN Wright
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The environment surrounding a planet dominated by its magnetic field (called the magnetosphere) shields the planet from the solar wind.
  Exploring trirutile materials as a platform for energy storage
  Dr D Arnold
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

DSTL PhD Studentship. Exploring trirutile materials as a platform for energy storage. Supervisors. Dr. Donna C. Arnold (Kent) and Professor Olivier Mentré (Lille).
  Controlling Microstructure of Metal and Polymer Aerogels via Advanced Templating Approaches
  Dr R Menzel
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aerogels are highly-porous, nanostructured materials with great potential in advanced technologies including energy generation, (electro)catalysis, and sensing.
  Identification of mlm receptor antagonists for treatment of cancer
  Dr R Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent high impact publications have identified antagonism of the mlm receptor as a possible target for treatment of cancer. The native ligand of the receptor has been linked to cell proliferation which has been proven to be as a result of increased nitric oxide (NO) concentration.
