  The aerodynamics of freight trains
  Prof Mark Sterling, Dr D Soper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developments in the capabilities of rail freight, including increased freight speeds and larger, better connected rail networks, will enable greater competition between rail and road markets while having many environmental benefits.
  Rail Innovators PhD Scholarship
  Prof D Creighton, Prof CP Lim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Institute of Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation (IISRI) currently offers an industry-funded PhD scholarship to a student who is ready to enrol on a full-time basis for conducting cutting-edge research in the transport/rail sector at Deakin University, together with our industry partner, Downer EDI Rail.
  Railway stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete linings
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Railway electrification represents an important carbon strategy in the UK. It is estimated that an electric train consumes at least 20% less power (per passenger per mile) compared to a diesel-powered train.
  Network Function Virtualisation Resource Management using Artificial Intelligence and Dig Data
  Prof J Cosmas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Network Function Virtualisation requires a Management and Orchestration system to manage the allocation of computer, storage and communication resources between tenant of the cloud network.
  Development of finite element-based computational framework for assessing the structural performance of advanced composite structures
  Dr Z Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites consisting of two-dimensional reinforcement are used in a variety of industrial applications such as aerospace, automotive, marine, rail, energy, civil structures, biomedical, and oil and gas.
  Soft Robotics for Medical Imaging and Robotic Surgery
  Dr A Stilli
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UCL Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering is inviting applications for a studentship in the area of soft robotics for medical imaging and surgical robotics.
  University of Reading, PhD Opportunities

PhD Type

Each year, the University of Reading awards over £8 million of funding in research studentships to home/EU and international students and these great opportunities are open to high quality students for funded research in a wide range of subject areas.
  Delivering Sustainable Energy Solutions to Ports
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Ports are major sources of greenhouse gas emissions as they have to move up to 10,000 containers a day from ship to road or rail transport and correspondingly in the reverse direction from land transport onto ships.
  Investigation of the topographic control for geohzards prone zone ecosystem functional properties by multiple remote sensing sensors
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr X Geng
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. With 71% of the earth’s surface covered by water, hydro-hazards, including floods, droughts, onshore and offshore landslides and storm surges, can pose direct threats to lives and impact livelihoods by damaging and destroying critical lifeline infrastructure (e.g.

  Research Group: Nanocomposites
  Prof T Peijs, Prof T McNally
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship in Composite Materials at WMG, the University of Warwick. A recent UK Materials Landscaping Study identified composites as the second largest manufacturing sector in the UK after steel, followed by plastics.
  Soundscape Research: Analysis, Auralisation, and Assessment
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof D Murphy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The simulation of sounds in our natural environment is important for us be able to more reliably model and analyse the acoustic results of small or large-scale, human interventions, such as a newly proposed road, airport or rail project.
  Anaemia of Chronic Kidney Disease: An All-Wales primary and secondary care prevalence and incidence study
  Prof M Gumbleton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aim. The project will investigate the prevalence of ACKD in Wales across primary and secondary care. It will follow patients with CKD G3-5 to explore the association between ACKD and hospitalisation and mortality.
