  Design and control of magnetic soft robot for surgical applications
  Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This vacancy is created by a major European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to the STORM Lab, which aims to define a new generation of surgical tentacle-like robots that can be magnetically guided within the human body by magnetic fields.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Dr A Revell, Dr A Skillen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK experiences as many tornadoes as the USA as a whole. 1.2 vs 1.3 tornadoes per 10,000 km2 per year on average (Mulder and Schultz 2015).
  Understanding and improving wind risk assessment for farm forests in Ireland
  Prof N Metje, Prof Mark Sterling
Application Deadline: 31 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Strong winds can result in tree uprooting (windthrow, the most common one) and/or breakage (windsnap) causing considerable damage and leading to major financial losses for forest owners.
  Control of Magnetically-driven Soft Continuum Robots
  Prof P Valdastri, Prof R Harris
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetically-driven Soft Robots are of increasing interest due to the range of new transformative applications they may enable. Within these are continuum robots which are of particular focus due to their potential to be used within the body to perform diagnostics and treatments.
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  Modelling coastal cliff erosion/collapse as a result of extreme weather impacts: case study at east coast of the UK
  Dr M Heidarzadeh
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for our EPSRC funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentship for the project titled “Modelling coastal cliff erosion/collapse as a result of extreme weather impacts.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Effects of flexible vegetation on oscillatory flow hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics
  Dr D Van der A, Prof T O'Donoghue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coastal vegetation such as seagrass protects against coastal erosion by attenuating wave energy and demobilising suspended sediments.
  Regulation of water and nutrient cycles with Nature-Based Solutions (NBS) in a changing environment
  Dr A Ollauri, Dr A Escudero, Dr S B Mickovski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-20-002-AGOSF. Climate change and population growth are threatening the quality and resilience of the Earth’s ecosystems. On the one hand, climate change is dramatically increasing the recurrence and impact of floods throughout Europe.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
  Using deep learning to improve emergency response in natural hazard management. PhD Computer Science. PhD Studentship (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Prof G Fu
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join a world-leading, cross-continental research team.
  Numerical modelling of sediment transportation and surface roughness on vegetated coastal dune systems
  Assoc Prof S Wakes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coasts and coastal communities around the world are vulnerable to sea level increases and intensity of storm events. Vegetated sand dunes are relied upon for protection, buffering coastal communities from the sea.
  What are the impacts of future changes in Tropical Cyclone activity in the Arabian Sea
  Dr K Hodges, Dr R Schiemann, Dr AG Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arabian Sea Tropical Cyclones (TCs) occur once or twice per year on average. Yet they have significant impacts, through their intense rainfall, strong winds and storm surges, on the coastal regions of Oman, Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan and western India.
  Curly, a novel IQGAP protein domain that bends actin filaments: characterisation and novel applications
  Dr D Köster, Prof M Balasubramanian
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Actin filaments are central to a large number of biological processes in all domains of life. Dirven by the interplay with molecular motors, actin binding and actin modulating proteins, the actin cytoskeleton exhibits a variety of geometries.
  Discerning the mechanisms of cell membrane budding by coronavirus non structured proteins nsp3, nsp4 and nsp6
  Dr D Köster, Dr A Dixon
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are positive strand- non-segmented RNA viruses, infect a wide range of hosts including mammalian species and have recently caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), the Middle-East respiratory syndrome (MERS) and the current SARS CoV-2 (Covid-19) pandemic.
