  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  Corrosion of Additively Manufactured Ni-Superalloys
  Research Group: PROCESSING
  Prof M Attallah, Dr S Cruchley
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from graduates with a first class, or upper second-class degree in an appropriate discipline such as, materials science and engineering, physics, aerospace, nuclear materials, or mechanical engineering for a PhD project on the understanding the corrosion properties of additively manufactured Ni-superalloys.
  Development of Effective Corrosion Testing Approaches for Performance Evaluation of Organic Coatings
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr M Curioni, Prof X Zhou
Application Deadline: 27 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary project which aims to, for the first time, connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of protective coatings and nanocomposite materials.
  Reliability of pipelines under spatially varying corrosion defects
  Dr S Sriramula, Dr H Tan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrity of pipelines is greatly affected by the initiation and progression of corrosion defects. It has been widely recognised that random variations in these characteristics can be rationally quantified with probabilistic approaches.
  Computational modelling of corrosion processes at metal-electrolyte interfaces
  Dr C Cucinotta
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ICL Chemistry department is offering a fully funded studentship to a highly motivated candidate. The position is immediately available.
  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.
  Molecular modelling insights into the performance of polymeric coatings containing active corrosion inhibitors
  Dr F Siperstein, Prof X Zhou, Dr C Avendano
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary project which aims to, for the first time, connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of protective coatings and nanocomposite materials.
  Railway stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete linings
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Railway electrification represents an important carbon strategy in the UK. It is estimated that an electric train consumes at least 20% less power (per passenger per mile) compared to a diesel-powered train.
  Developing an Imaging-Diffraction Method for Corrosion and Steel Degradation Studies
  Dr A Matamoras Veloza, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project provides an excellent opportunity for doctoral training on corrosion and steel degradation as part of a collaborative work between the School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds and ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility, at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford.
  Rational Design of Stable Electrocatalysts on Corrosion Free Carbon Supports: Improving Fuel Cell Performance
  Prof J Macpherson, Prof M E Newton, Dr C Dancer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two of the main global challenges that humanity faces, climate change and the depletion of traditional fossil fuel energy resources, are intrinsically connected.
  Mitigation against stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Railway stray current induced corrosion will become more prominent in the UK alongside the development of high-speed rails. This project will look into the provisions to mitigate railway stray current induced corrosion in reinforced concrete.
  Prediction for stray alternating current (AC) induced corrosion in oil/gas pipes in close proximity to high-voltage transmission lines and railways
  Dr K Tang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In comparison to stray direct current (DC) induced corrosion which is a long-recognized engineering challenge, stray alternating current (AC) induced corrosion was more recently reported.
  NSIRC237 PhD Studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd) – Repair of high strength corrosion resistant alloys using laser assisted cold spray
  Mr H Begg, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Institution National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC). PhD Supervisor Tanvir Hussain University of Nottingham. Application Deadline Open throughout the year.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
