  Micro-rheology of active matter
  Dr V Kantsler, Prof R C Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns microrheology of active matter - to study properties of biological microscopic constituents and its complex environment via optical microscopy and microfluidic methods.
  Dynamics of Foam Flow Through Processing Equipment
  Prof M Barigou
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas-liquid foams are structured two-phase fluids in which gas bubbles are separated by interconnecting thin liquid films, and the volume fraction of the continuous liquid phase is small in dry foams but can be substantial in wet foams.
  UK/EU Studentship: Linking fluid flow to cleaning performance via tailored food-grade soils
  Prof D I Wilson, Prof S Cant
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

(3.5 year fully-funded PhD CASE studentship with Professor Ian Wilson (CEB) and Professor Stewart Cant (Department of Engineering); industrial partner TetraPak (www.tetrapak.com).
  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Programming anisotropy into responsive soft materials
  Prof JR Stokes, Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to develop new kinds of soft nanomaterials using our recent discovery of liquid crystal hydroglass phase in suspensions of nanocellulose colloidal rods.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Responsive Foams
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiphase flow systems such as foams contribute considerably to the world economy and have a wide range of applications from food, medical and fire-fighting to environmental treatment, mineral processing and oil and gas industries.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  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.
  VC International Scholarship in Large-scale 3D Printing of Sustainable Indigenous Material
  Dr W Jabi
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Large-scale robotic 3D printing has focused almost exclusively on concrete, a primary producer of greenhouse gases.
  EPSRC supported PhD with Integrated Studies. Optimisation of Electrode Dispersions for Advanced Lithium Ion Batteries
  Prof M Simmons, Prof E Kendrick
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As society transitions to renewable and often variable power sources and drives towards decarbonizing the energy economy, energy storage will play an increasingly important role.
  Sustainable formulations based on cellulose based colloid-nematic gels.
  Dr T Wood, Dr M. Dorris
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An opportunity has arisen for a 4-year PhD studentship within the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh funded by the BBSRC through the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC).
  Towards the predictive design of PAEK-based polymers - from fundamental polymer physics to advanced materials applications
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr J Mattsson, Dr P Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is focused on developing a predictive framework to control glass-formation and crystallization in polymers, with a particular focus on the efficient design of high performance polymers within the Poly Aryl Ether Ketone (PAEK) family.
  Probing Structural Order in Concentrated Dispersions of Block Copolymer Worms using SAXS
  Prof SA Armes, Dr OM Mykhaylyk
Application Deadline: 25 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD studentship is focused on the synthesis and characterisation of block copolymer nanoparticles via polymerisation-induced self-assembly (PISA).
  What makes particle packings stable? Novel answers to a baffling question
  Dr M Haw, Dr L Lue, Dr K Dobson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils, catalysts, nanoporous materials, pharmaceutical tablets, sand dunes. all are packings of particles, with microstructure on scales from nanometre to centimetre.
