  Penguin propulsion mechanics in underwater swimming
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  Variable Stiffness Actuation for Bioinspired Underwater Vehicle Design
  Dr F Giorgio-Serchi, Dr A Stokes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Background of the Project. Fish and other aquatic organisms propel themselves by performing various types of flapping foil routines.
  Exploitation of Full-Duplex Capability in Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks at the Medium Access Control Layer
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Full-duplex has the potential to double the capacity of point-to-point communication links, but these benefits can only be fully realised in communication networks through development of a suitable medium access control layer.
  Intelligent Medium Access Control for Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most research in underwater acoustic communication deals with the physical layer, with primitive and inflexible multiple access, despite the medium access control layer playing a crucial role in providing efficient communication.
  Application of digital holography for underwater measurements
  Dr T Thevar, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Underwater digital holography is a powerful technique to study marine organisms and marine pollution (e.g. micro-plastics), marine evolution, etc.
  Development of Robust Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping Techniques for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Operating under the Polar Sea-Ice
  Prof E Rogers, Dr A. Phillips, Dr G Salavasidis
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Despite the considerable effort directed towards AUV navigation, a self-contained solution remains a key challenge.
  Application of Satellite Medium Access Control Principles to Underwater Acoustic Communication Networks
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acoustic waves are widely accepted as the most suitable means of communicating underwater, since radio waves suffer from severe attenuation through water.
  Realistic Underwater Acoustic Propagation Model for Medium Access Control Protocol Evaluation
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Dr P D Mitchell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successful prediction of the performance of medium access control protocols is dependent on a realistic model of the underlying propagation channel.
  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  Quantum-Enhanced Imaging in Extreme Environments
  Prof G Buller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single-Photon and photon-pair correlated imaging has opened up a number of exciting possibilities for three-dimensional imaging in extreme environments such as imaging through obscurants (eg fog, smoke), and underwater.
