  Versatile Machine Learning-based detection technology for supercooled liquid clouds in polar regions
  Research Group: Climate and Climate Change
  Dr A Battaglia, Dr I Tyukin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Clouds are a key regulator of Earth’s surface energy balance. The cloud cover along with cloud phase are the primary factors modulating the amount of radiation incident on the surface.
  Laser-driven fusion: the Polar Direct Drive Shock Ignition approach
  Prof N Woolsey
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Join Robbie Scott at the Central Laser Facility (STFC) and Nigel Woolsey in the Physics Department (York) and contribute to an international effort to achieve fusion energy gain through Inertial Confinement Fusion (ICF).
  Tetrazines as Traceless Carriers for Polar Drugs
  Research Group: Medicines Development and Pharmaceutical Sciences
  Dr R Wheelhouse, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round
A recent invention in Bradford has identified a new carrier molecule that reduces the polarity of polar drugs.
  The role of microorganisms in the cycling of climate active gases (Ref: OP19_16)
  Prof D Pearce
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Microorganisms are likely to play an increasingly important role in the Earth’s climate system (Falkowski et al., 2008 Science 320.
  Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply
  Prof U Witte, Dr K O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Transformation of Antarctic Benthic Food Webs on the Larsen Ice Shelf following climate-change driven changes in food supply.
  Graphene modified Bitumen: Impact of Graphene Nano Particle on the Rheological and Engineering Properties of Bituminous Mixture
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Dr N Habib, Dr I Kamaruddin
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Almost 85% of annually produced bitumen are used by paving industry as a binder of aggregate to form asphalt concrete. It is also reported that in 2019, the global demand for bitumen is projected to grow by 2.8 % per year to 122.5 million metric tons.
  Understanding how Antarctic Ice Sheets control the climate of Antarctica (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/GES/ROBERTS)
  Dr W Roberts
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
This project will unravel how the size and shape of Antarctica influences its climate. One of the key predictions of climate models is “polar amplification”.
  DTC GEO 6 - Geophysical field exploration of firn aquifers on ice caps in Svalbard, High Arctic
  Prof B Kulessa
Applications accepted all year round
In the last few years the major discovery of firn aquifers on Polar ice sheets and glaciers has led to the appreciation that hundreds of gigatonnes of water may be stored within them for years to decades, thus causing major delays in the ice masses’ contributions to sea level rise.
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  PhD in Tuning structure and properties in layered perovskites
  Dr E McCabe
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
A PhD position is available in the field of materials chemistry/physics working on the synthesis and characterisation of polar (ferroelectric) materials, complemented by computational work carried out with collaborators.
