  Use of Machine Learning for Helicopter Ship Operational Research
  Prof M White, Prof I Owen
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Flight Science and Technology (FS&T) research group at the University of Liverpool are international leaders in the use of flight simulation to support aircraft/ship and helicopter/ship clearance operations.
  Design of propeller and propeller-energy efficiency devices for realistic ship operations
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 9 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dominic Hudson, Joe Banks, Dominic Taunton (Maritime Engineering). Project description. International shipping contributes ~ 3.1% of global GHG emissions, which without change may increase to 18% by 2050.
  Development of a coupled cargo-ship model for bulk carriers
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr D Taunton
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dominic Taunton. Co-supervisor Ivan Haigh, Susan Gourvenec. Project description. Solid bulk cargoes are granular materials including products like metal ores, that are carried within the hold of a bulk carrier (ship) without other containment.
  Improving Ship Safety through closing the design loop
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dominic Hudson, Dominic Taunton (Maritime Engineering). Project description. Despite increased training of ship’s crew there are still a significant number of accidents and incidents.
  Machine Learning for Stress and Fatigue Detection in Ship Crews
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dominic Hudson, Dominic Taunton, Sarvapali Ramchurn. Project description. It is often reported that 80% of maritime accidents are due to human error, with a large proportion of these attributed to a failure to follow procedures.
  Reducing shipping emissions through accurate assessment of energy efficient technologies using statistical analysis of operational data
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Dominic Hudson, Dr. Adam Sobey, Prof. Sujit Sahu, (Mathematical Sciences). Project description. Global shipping is responsible for 3.1% of CO2 emissions (IMO, 3rd Greenhouse Gas report, 2014), yet is outside of UNFCCC commitments to reduce emissions.
  Developing an intervention to maximise nurse antibiotic prescribing for Upper Respiratory Tract Infections (URTI).
  Research Group: Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention
  Dr V Ness, Dr L Price, Dr K McAloney-Kocaman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20034 Ness. Antimicrobial resistance is a public health priority with human, financial and social costs. One of the main contributors to this resistance is the inappropriate prescribing of antibiotics.
  Investigating the causes and prevention of healthcare associated pneumonia.
  Research Group: Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention
  Dr J Reilly, Prof K Currie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20032 Reilly. Epidemiological data from Europe and the USA suggests that pneumonia is the most common healthcare associated infection, with the majority of cases being non-ventilator associated.
  Optimising the nursing contribution to improving antimicrobial stewardship in hospitals: development of a multi-component intervention
  Research Group: Safeguarding Health through Infection Prevention
  Dr V Ness, Dr D McDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. SHLS20033 Ness. ‘Antimicrobial resistance’ (AMR) means that many antibiotics may not work in future, putting hospital patients at increased risk of serious infections.
  Boundary Layer Drag Reduction via Periodic Control of Chaotic Systems
  Dr T Eaves, Dr A Cuthbertson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Turbulent fluid flows are ubiquitous in the engineering sciences. Particularly prominent examples include pipeline transport of liquids, air flow over aircraft wings and around land vehicles, and water flow around ship hulls.
  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.
  Feasibility of Shipboard Carbon Capture, Storage and Utilisation
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Dominic Hudson. Co-supervisor Dr. Lindsay-Marie Armstrong. Project description. Global shipping is responsible for 3.1% of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions (IMO, 3rd Greenhouse Gas report, 2014), yet is outside of UNFCCC commitments to reduce emissions.
  Intelligent Sensor Perception to Improve the Autonomy of Unmanned Aerial Systems (PHDCEPS1920006)
  Dr J Riordan, Dr S Matalonga
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

University of the West of Scotland are leading the €5 million European Commission H2020 RAPID project (Risk Aware Port Inspection Drones), which will extend drones to autonomously monitor maritime transport infrastructures such as bridges, ports, and ships.
