  Applications of topology to soft matter physics
  Dr M Grant, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address mathematical problems in the research field of algebraic topology, inspired by the theory of topological defects in soft materials.
  Design principles for active solids
  Dr A Souslov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft materials surround us and compose us. Biological functions rely on active components embedded in soft biological matter. For example, muscles move because molecular motors convert chemical energy into work.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Computational modelling of dynamics due to gradients in living cells, drying paints and other out-of-equilibrium liquids
  Dr R Sear
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Soft Matter research group of the Department of Physics of the University of Surrey has a PhD studentship for an October 2020 start.
  Modelling Wetting on Structured Surfaces using the Lattice Boltzmann Method
  Dr H Kusumaatmaja
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The wetting behaviour of liquids on solid surfaces plays an important role for current and emerging technologies involving liquids from the nano- to the macro-scales.
  Centres for Doctoral Training - 4 Year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year.
  Programming Polymers
  Dr H Frisch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD position on the interface of organic and polymer chemistry available in the Soft Matter. Materials laboratory located at Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia).
  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.
  Characterising sequence-controlled polymers in real space: polymer genome through submolecular imaging
  Prof L Barner
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student is needed for a project focused on developing an approach to the characterisation of sequence-controlled polymers (SCPs) by direct spatial investigation using high resolution scanning probe microscopy.
  Mapping oxidation state and crystallisation dynamics in metal oxide thin films for catalysts and energy storage devices
  Prof A O'Mullane, Dr M Jones
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the heterogeneous chemical and structural changes that occur in thin metal oxide films when used as catalysts for water splitting to produce hydrogen is critical for the development of more efficient materials.
  Programming and Real-Time Monitoring Light Degradability of Polymers
  Dr H Frisch, Dr B Poad
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic polymers are arguably the class of man-made materials that have most shaped the last century. However, the majority of polymers results from radical polymerization techniques yielding all carbon backbones, which critically prevent their degradation and pose a vital threat to the future of our planet.
  Single atom on ferroelectric layers for controlled photocatalytic CO2 reduction
  Dr L Kou, Dr J Xu
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will focus on the use of atomistic simulations to calculate the optical adsorption, band alignment and reaction barriers/pathway, based on the density functional theory.
  Single-layer 2D heterostructures on epitaxial graphene for future electronics
  Prof N Motta
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we aim at growing new two dimensional (2D) heterostructures based on graphene epitaxially grown on insulating SiC.
