  PhD Studentship in Tribology: the mechanisms by which soot causes problematic wear in heavy-duty diesel engine components
  Dr T Reddyhoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Tribology, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The studentship is for three and a half years starting spring 2020.
  PhD Studentship in Shell University Technology Centre in the field of Fuels and Lubricants
  Dr J Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Fuels and Lubricants, leading to the award of a PhD degree. Lubricants are used in engines to reduce friction, to improve machine efficiency and thus reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  Bio-Tribology of synovial joint arthroplasty (NMUF2019)
  Dr N Morris, Dr H Rahnejat
Application Deadline: 7 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An increasing proportion of the population suffer from joint pain which stems from wear and tear, injury and arthritis. In severe cases the only option is to completely replace the joint.
  High Temperature Tribology and Wear
  Dr A. Zabala
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temperature can have a significant effect on the frictional behaviour and the extent of wear damage of metallic components. This phenomenon presents a complex nature involving thermal, microstructural and surface interaction and process parameters.
  Cost and efficiency focused optimisation of domestic waste water heat recovery application
  Research Group: Engineering Analysis Simulation and Tribology Research Group
  Dr A Ramezanpour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Engineering Analysis Simulation and Tribology Research Group. https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-technology/research/our-research-institutes-and-groups/engineering-analysis-simulation-and-tribology-research-group.
  Aerospace optical sensors (GE Aviation)
  Research Group: Photonic Systems Circuits & Sensors
  Dr C Holmes
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christopher Holmes, Prof Ling Wang. Project description. Sensors are crucial components for flight. In addition to providing information to the flight crew, they are increasingly providing information for Artificial Intelligence systems, in order to predict and thus avoid faults.
  Compound degradation modelling within heavy machines
  Research Group: nCATS
  Prof R J K Wood
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Robert Wood. Project description. This EPSRC funded PhD is aligned with a major EPSRC funded research on early wear detection being conducted at the national centre for advanced tribology at Southampton (nCATS).
  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.
  Understanding of the Rehbinder effect across length scales
  Dr S Goel
Application Deadline: 15 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rehbinder in 1928 reported that when a wetted surface is brought into contact with a metallic surface, it results in reduction of surface energy and hence diminishing strength of the material (doi:10.1038/1641127a0).
  Influence of laser shock peening on environmentally assisted cracking in 7xxx aluminium alloys
  Research Group: nCATS
  Dr J Wharton
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020
