  PhD: Atmospheric monitoring for next generation cable free optical communication technologies (British Telecom)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cable-free optical communication systems are vital for building the communication networks of the future. Traditionally wireless connections have been based on radio or microwave systems.
  Atmosphere blocking dynamics: Persistence, re-intensification and interaction with other weather systems
  Dr O Martinez-Alvarado, Dr R Schiemann, Dr K Hodges, Dr D Ackerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric blocking occurs when persistent high-pressure systems (or anticyclones) remain quasi-stationary over a given location or region at mid- or high-latitudes.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 10 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  Probing organic composition of the atmosphere with Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof H Coe, Dr J Allan, Prof G McFiggans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a huge number of organic compounds present in the atmosphere. They are emitted from a wide range of sources that are both natural and man-made.
  Activating Carbon Dioxide Utilising Atmospheric Pressure Gas Plasma
  Dr B Buckley, Dr F Iza
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be part of the Doctoral Training Centre on Plasma interactions with Liquids. The Buckley group has embarked on a programme of research directed at carbon dioxide utilisation (CDU) and has reported initial efforts in the area.
  Could cold atmospheric air plasma be a potential novel therapy for treating infected diabetic foot ulcers?
  Dr N Stevens, Dr H Humphreys
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In Ireland, diabetes mellitus is reported to affect 207,490 people, or 6.5% of the population in the 20-79-year-old age group (www.diabetes.ie).
  Ice accretion on wind turbine blades
  Dr Y Lin, Prof J Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The abundant wind resource in cold and high altitude regions in the world is attractive for the increasing demand for renewable wind power production.
  Clouds in Earth’s changing climate
  Dr T Dinh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clouds are the largest source of uncertainty in climate models’ prediction of global climate change.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
  Impact of Sand and Dust on Engines
  Dr M Jones, Dr S Covey-Crump, Dr A Pawley, Dr N Bojdo
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sand and dust from arid regions is increasingly a problem for aircraft gas turbine engines, both military and civil.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  The effect of microstructure on the localised corrosion and environmentally assisted cracking of ultra-high strength stainless steels
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr F Scenini, Prof P Prangnell
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultra-high strength Maraging steels are subject to a complex processing route to optimise their performance, which involves forging, and heat treatment, to develop a quenched and tempered martensitic microstructure with yield strengths over 1500 MPa.
  Could airborne microplastics play a role in climate change?
  Dr L Revell
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funded PhD studentship. Could airborne microplastics play a role in climate change?. Microplastics are ubiquitous contaminants in aquatic and terrestrial environments, and have recently been discovered in the atmosphere in several megacities and remote locations throughout the Northern Hemisphere.
  Platelets and hypoxia: how do varying oxygen concentrations affect platelet function and signalling?
  Dr M Arman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets have key functions in regulating haemostasis and maintaining vascular integrity, which can cause cardiovascular disease if unbalanced.
  Exploring the potential of cyanobacteria to produce extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) (ENG1347)
  Dr K Kourmentza
Application Deadline: 11 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyanobacteria are widely known for their ability to fix atmospheric carbon through photosynthesis.
