  Development of a coupled cargo-ship model for bulk carriers
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Dr D Taunton
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dominic Taunton. Co-supervisor Ivan Haigh, Susan Gourvenec. Project description. Solid bulk cargoes are granular materials including products like metal ores, that are carried within the hold of a bulk carrier (ship) without other containment.
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Prof A M Graham, Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vein graft failure is a significant issue in cardiovascular disease patients, with restenosis caused by alterations in flow patterns leading to remodelling and disease progression.
  KESS2 MRes Studentship: Design and development of a cryogenic pressure vessel for spacecraft application
  Dr R Navaratne
Application Deadline: 26 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a funded MbyRes, including a generous stipend and tuition fees, with well-resourced circumstances for a successful scholarship.
  Two-Lobe Swirl Duct Design Template for Blood Flow
  Prof D McGlinchey, Dr E Smith, Dr T Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-20-018-DMSF. Background. The first design of swirl-inducing duct was patented in 1899 to improve the dredging of river sediments.
  Mapping the radiation tolerance and local mechanics of nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel steels
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr E Jimenez-Melero, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of the local microstructure on the radiation damage and mechanical performance of neutron-irradiated Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) steels at relevant reactor conditions and in the bulk microstructure, with sufficient spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity to identify local changes in chemistry, phases, microstructure and plasticity/hardening.
  Using zebrafish models to investigate cerebral arteriovenous malformations
  Dr P Kasher, Prof S Allan, Dr A Parry-Jones, Dr H Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cerebral Arteriovenous Malformations (cAVM) relate to a spectrum of conditions associated with blood vessel abnormalities of the brain [1].
  Impact of normal and premature ageing on human macro- and microvasculature
  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman, Dr M J Thornton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is growing, with the number of births consistently higher than the number of deaths. This is because people are living for longer, due at least in part to improved lifestyle and healthcare provision.
  Go with the flow: the why and how of cardiovascular disease
  Dr E Tzima
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered why and how cardiovascular disease and atherosclerotic plaques develop in the areas that they do? Why is it that some arteries are prone to blockage while others are protected? The answer lies with blood flow.
  Reducing shipping emissions through accurate assessment of energy efficient technologies using statistical analysis of operational data
  Research Group: Fluid-Structure Interactions
  Prof D Hudson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Dominic Hudson, Dr. Adam Sobey, Prof. Sujit Sahu, (Mathematical Sciences). Project description. Global shipping is responsible for 3.1% of CO2 emissions (IMO, 3rd Greenhouse Gas report, 2014), yet is outside of UNFCCC commitments to reduce emissions.
  Molecular Imaging of Collagen in Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms
  Dr A Phinikaridou
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Summary. Abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) are permanent dilations of the aorta that exceed 50% of the original size of the vessel or that are greater than 3cm in maximum diameter.
  Making the link between weld process and long term in-service performance: multi-scale modelling and characterisation for low alloy steel welds in advanced nuclear reactors
  Prof M C Smith, Dr J Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-value, low-volume, safety-critical metallic components in nuclear plants almost invariably contain welds. Welding is an aggressive process that causes microstructural changes in the weld and adjacent heat affected zone, develops residual stresses and structural distortion, and changes the material properties.
  Investigating the mechanism of action of dual antiangiogenic/ antineoplastic drugs using organotypic co-culture of fibroblasts and endothelial cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Elies Gomez, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Can neutrophil microvesicles influence the phenotype of monocytes - linking systemic inflammation with heart disease
  Dr V Ridger, Prof E Kiss-Toth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide. Atherosclerosis, the build up of fibro-fatty plaques in the wall of arteries, is the underlying cause of the heart attack and stroke.
  Pore-scale modelling of drug transport in brain tumour tissue
  Dr W Zhan, Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malignant glioma is characterised as aggressive and invasive in clinic owing to its high mortality rate.
