  PhD Studentship: Kinetic and kinematic determinants of block / turn propulsion and their influence on the performance of underwater phases in elite swimmers
  Dr M King
Application Deadline: 12 December 2018
Reference number. SSEHS/MAK. Start date of studentship. 1st January 2019. Closing date of advert. 12th December 2018. Interview date.
  CDT-SIS-527: Geo-chemical and geo-mechanical seabed characterisation using autonomous underwater vehicles
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 31 December 2018
This industry funded Ph.D. will investigate methods to perform geo-chemical and geo-mechanical seabed observations for mineral prospecting and infrastructure planning using Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) with landing capabilities.
  CDT-SIS-534: Hydrodynamic Drag Reduction for Underwater and Surface Vehicles
  Research Group: Sustainable Infrastructure Systems (SIS)
  Prof R J K Wood, Dr B Ganapathisubramani
Application Deadline: 15 December 2018
The hydrodynamic drag experienced by moving underwater and surface vehicles can have a significant impact on their mission energy budgets in to propelling them through the oceanic fluidic medium, with the drag and the required power increasing non-linearly with the speed of travel.
  Innovative launch and recovery of low-cost, compact underwater vehicles to form scalable ocean sensor networks
  Dr J Downes, Dr B Thornton
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. This project will develop scalable approaches to form distributed networks of sensors by launching and recovering small, low-cost autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) from the surface or air.
  Understanding and optimisation of hydrodynamic properties of micro Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) configurations resulting from the installation of different payload profiles
  Dr J Downes, Prof S Turnock
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Project Rationale. The study will investigate how minimum data sampling requirements can be met in a robust manner using a shoal of heterogeneously instrumented micro-AUVs.
  Measuring carbonate chemistry using state of the art sensors on underwater robots
  Dr S Loucaides, Dr S Papadimitriou
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Programme website. http://inspire-dtp.ac.uk. Project Rationale. Understanding the temporal and spatial variability in CO2 concentrations and fluxes in the ocean, year-round high spatial resolution measurements are needed[1].
  Rational Orthogonal Wavelet Applied to Target Detection and Tracking in Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networking
  Dr L Yu, Dr X Zhu, Dr E G Lim, Dr F Ma
Applications accepted all year round
The candidate should have a first class or upper second class honours degree, or a master’s degree (or equivalent qualification), in Telecommunications Engineering or Electrical and Electronic Engineering.
  The application of artificial intelligence to benthic species identification (HowellP19ARIES)
  Dr K Howell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2019
Background. Marine benthic ecosystems are chronically under-sampled particularly in environments >50m. Yet a rising level of anthropogenic threats makes data collection ever more urgent.
  Quantum-Enhanced Imaging in Extreme Environments
  Prof G Buller
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
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.
  Design and Optimization for the Noise Reduction Marine Ducted Thrusters
  Dr W Shi
Application Deadline: 15 September 2019
Qualification type. PhD. Location. Glasgow, UK. Funding for. UK/EU (UK preferred). Funding amount. The funding covers UK/EU student tuition fees and stipend in line with University rates (£14,777.00 per year).
