  Flexible substrate rectenna devices for energy recovery (Ref : RENU20/EE/MPEE/DODD)
  Dr L Dodd, Prof D Wood, Dr H Torun
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU)is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
  High sensitivity micro/nano optical fibre biosensor for bacterial detection (Advert reference: RDF20/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Earlier diagnostic/detection for diseases (cancer, chronic or foodborne) enables doctors making rapid clinical decision, which considerably enhance the success of treatment and medical intervention and ultimately benefits to human health.
  ONE Planet DTP - “Quantifying the impact of artificial lawns on the structure and function of urban ecosystems” (Ref: OP20295)
  Dr M Goddard
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Understanding how the management of urban habitats affects biodiversity and the provision of ecosystem services is essential for creating sustainable and liveable cities.
  ONE Planet DTP - The importance of microorganisms in cloud formation (though ice nucleation) and its influence on albedo in the Arctic (Ref: OP202070)
  Prof D Pearce
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria and other primary biological aerosol particles are now known to enhance cloud formation through acting as cloud condensation nuclei (CCN) or through the expression of ice nucleation proteins in their cell membranes, hence acting as ice nucleating particles (INP).
  Tapered microstructure fibre and its application for bio-chemical sensing (SF19/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu, Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently there is an increasing demand for human health monitoring due to the development of the society. This requires to monitor a larger number of analytes, and hence it is crucial to develop an efficient and cost effective detection method.
  Transparent silver electrodes for clean and renewable electricity generation and storage (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MPEE/ZOPPI)
  Dr G Zoppi, Dr V Barrioz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional layers such as transparent conductive oxides can offer excellent electrical and optical properties in electronic devices (touch screens, LCDs etc).
  3D printing of drug delivery implants
  Dr P Boyd, Prof K Malcolm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing (3DP) encompasses a wide range of. processes that create structures through deposition or binding of materials in successive.
  Microfluidic Synthesis of Nanomedicines for the Delivery of Biologic Drugs
  Dr D Lamprou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in drug design has led to the development of new molecules. However, the limited ability to selectively deliver these molecules at well-defined dosing regimens remains a significant challenge.
  Responsive hydrogel platforms towards the prevention of medical device-associated infections
  Dr N Irwin, Dr C McCoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catheter-associated urinary tract infections represent a high priority global healthcare challenge. We have recently identified a suite of non-antibiotic active agents with promising antibacterial and anti-encrustation activities.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
