  Integration of Real-time Rail-track Monitoring with 4G LTE over Fibre (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MPEE/NG)
  Dr W.P. Ng
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
In the UK rail industry, one of the key measure for train operators is public performance measure (PPM) which is defined as on time if it arrives within 5 minutes of the planned destination arrive time or 10 minutes for long distance travel.
  Multi-hazard risk and uncertainty quantification for rail infrastructure systems
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round
The University of Birmingham, as part of a multi-university multi-disciplinary rail research team, has recently been The University of Birmingham is host…

  Prof A Blyth
Application Deadline: 27 January 2019
*This is a KESS 2 East scholarship opportunity. Please note the eligibility information in the advert text or contact the team for further information.*.
  Wheel/Rail Interface Tribology PhD - ’Influence of Microstructural Properties on wheel and Rail Wear and Damage’
  Prof R Lewis
Applications accepted all year round
This project is funded by the Virtual Vehicle Research Center in Graz, Austria and will involve close collaboration with another PhD student based there.
  Co-Simulation for test and validation of future rail vehicles
  Dr P Hubbard
Application Deadline: 28 January 2019
Reference number. WS17. Start date of studentship. 1st October 2019. Closing date of advert. 28th January 2019. Interview date. TBC.
  Modelling of Rail Corrugation Growth in Curved Track
  Research Group: Acoustics
  Prof D J Thompson
Application Deadline: 12 January 2019
Railway corrugation is frequent wavy wear on the running surface of the rails that has its origin in a complex coupling between the wear in the wheel-rail interface and the vibratory dynamics of the track-vehicle system.
  Innovative Development of Platform Train Interface Hardware.
  Dr C Johnson
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. CIJ-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. This research will look into developing realistic and adaptable technologies for improving the platform train interface for those with a disability or impairment.
  Future Railway Systems: Mechatronics and Autonomy for Railway Infrastructure
  Prof R Dixon, Dr E Stewart
Applications accepted all year round
Railway infrastructure systems (such as track switches and level crossings) rely upon mechanical technology which has changed very little over the last two centuries.
