  Magnesium alloy implants: corrosion effects on its mechanical performance
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resorbable metals, including magnesium- and iron-based metal alloy, were investigated intensively as biomaterials for production of orthopaedic implant and stents.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  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.
  Heusler alloy films for nano-spintronic devices
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Prof A Hirohata
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heusler-alloy films are theoretically predicted to show 100% spin polarisation and is therefore ideal to be used in spintronic devices [1],[2].
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  Ultrasonic Imaging of Titanium Alloy Textures
  Dr K Tant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of ultrasonic non-destructive evaluation (NDE), leading to the award of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) degree.
  Carbon foams and hydrogen from zero emission fossil fuels
  Dr N Bimbo, Dr R Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A four-year fully funded PhD studentship for UK/EU citizens is available at the Leverhulme Doctoral Training Centre for Materials Social Futures to start in October 2020.
  Development of Accident Tolerant Fuels for Light Water Reactors
  Dr A Evans
Application Deadline: 9 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop the physical vapour deposition (PVD) route to produce coatings with improved mechanical stability and high temperature oxidation resistance, suitable for use as accident tolerant fuel coatings in light water reactors.
  Development, processing and understanding of high entropy alloys
  Prof P S Grant
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High entropy alloy is a term applied to a relatively new type of metallic alloy system that comprises near equiatomic concentrations of at least three or more alloying elements.
  Modelling of joining technologies for novel metal matrix composites for offshore applications
  Prof I Guz, Prof M Kashtalyan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal matrix composites (MMCs) present remarkable properties by combining the properties of the metal matrix and of ceramic reinforcement.
  EPSRC CDT in Nuclear Energy - GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  Cellular Automaton to Model Rapid Crystal Growth and Recrystallisation
  Dr A Roy, Dr K Baxevanakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Texture in materials plays a crucial role in metallic products. A thorough study of the underlying morphology and its evolution is relevant for producing cast parts of innovative technological products.
  Development of next generation thin film solar cells
  Prof M Walls, Dr J Bowers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of clean, sustainable energy is one of the greatest challenges facing modern society and solar photovoltaics (PV) provide the best opportunity for rapidly expanding renewable energy.
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  EPSRC CDT in Nuclear Energy - GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
