  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.
  Diamond Formation in Giant Ice Planets
  Dr D Gericke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The internal structure of a planet, that is its radial material and density distribution, is largely defined by hydrostatic equilibrium.
  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.
  3D and 4D Printing of Functional Polymers: Adding Function to Printed Objects
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will transform commodity polymers used in 3D printing to control their properties for advanced applications. The student will utilise a number of techniques to synthesise and characterize the polymers to create new materials with interesting properties.
  Designing Catalysts Inspired by Enzymes with Real World Applications
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  Engineering Enzymes to address global plastic pollution problems
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  The Science Fiction Legacy of H. G. Wells: how his works of science fiction and predictions of the future have influenced generations of sci fi writers and filmmakers - SACI0004
  Prof L Dryden, Dr S Artt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

H. G. Welts is perhaps best known popularly as ’the father of science fiction’ because his scientific fantasy novels of the late nineteenth century did more than any others to inaugurate a new genre that became known in the 1920s as ’science fiction’.
  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).
  Quantifying star formation
  Dr R Parker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stars form in relatively dense groups containing tens to millions of other stars, and these environments directly influence both young planets as they are forming, as well as the global evolution of galaxies.
  Engineering material properties by ultrafast laser writing for photonics and information technology
  Research Group: Fibre & Systems Group
  Prof P Kazansky
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Professor Peter Kazansky. Project description. High-power ultrafast lasers enable the new technique of direct optical writing for patterning waveguides, micro- and nano-structures in three dimensions, to provide entirely new functionalities in optoelectronics.
  Printed optics by ultrafast laser nanostructuring of transparent materials
  Research Group: Fibre & Systems Group
  Prof P Kazansky
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Professor Peter Kazansky. Project description. High-power ultrafast lasers enable the new technique of direct optical writing for patterning waveguides, micro- and nano-structures in three dimensions, to provide entirely new functionalities in optoelectronics.
  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.
