  Prediction of microscale geometry and performance of 3D-printed medical implants (AGUF2019)
  Dr A Gleadall
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cutting-edge medical implants for bone fracture repair are manufactured from biodegradable polymers because, unlike permanent devices, they are fully absorbed by the body over several months and do not need surgical removal after healing.
  Mapping a glassy “phase diagram”
  Dr A Liu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the nature and structure of materials far-from-equilibrium is one of the remaining grand challenges in condensed matter physics [1].
  QUADRAT DTP: Assessing the restoration of UK Carbon sinks using geophysics and microbiology
  Dr R Doherty, Dr J C Comte
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Occupying just 3% of the Earth’s land surface, peatlands are our largest carbon store on land. Worldwide they store 550 gigatonnes of carbon, representing 42% of all soil carbon and exceeds the carbon stored in all other vegetation types, including the world’s forests.
  Limb trauma & reconstruction in East, Central & Southern Africa: the socioeconomic burden and prospects for change (GCRF)
  Dr A Reid, Dr J Wong, Dr D Walter, Prof S Birch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Open lower limb fractures (OLLFs) are life-changing injuries defined by a wound associated with an underlying fracture.
  Structural batteries mechanical resilience
  Dr ATR Rhead, Prof MSI Islam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Batteries based on carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) have the potential to supply power with an improved overall efficiency (vehicle power to weight rather than battery power to weight) compared to current battery technologies.
  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.
  Improving design against fatigue
  Dr H Basoalto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fatigue life prediction in the aerospace components relies on fracture mechanics for relatively long cracks (>1mm). Nevertheless, most of the fatigue life is spent while the crack is relatively short (.
  PhD in Bcc Titanium Superalloys for Aerospace Gas Turbines
  Dr S Knowles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded 3-year UK/EU PhD studentship is available in the group of Dr Sandy Knowles within the School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham, with a stipend of at least £14,777 per year (industrial top up of ~£2000 expected).
  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  Fabrications and strength analysis of green composites hosting plastic wastes
  Dr J Antony, Dr S Barbhuiya
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop new understandings on utilising domestic plastic wastes as ingredients in manufacturing new structural composites.
  Ductility & Brittleness in Refractory and High-entropy Alloys
  Dr C Brandl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For a significant increase in operating temperatures in energy conversion processes, alternative constituent phases for new high-temperature alloys beyond tradition Ni-basis superalloys have to be explored.
  Source mechanics of fluid driven volcanic Earthquakes
  Dr P Benson, Dr G Tozzi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full time PhD, to commence in October 2019 or February 2020. The PhD will be based in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences and will be supervised by Dr.
  Bioprinting to Treat Osteochondral Defects
  Dr P Petkov, Dr M Roldo
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded three-year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Technology and will be supervised by Dr Petko Petkov and Dr Roldo.
  Identifying pharmacological targets for osteoporosis intervention using whole-genome and exome sequencing of bone related phenotypes
  Dr J Kemp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis (OP) is an often asymptomatic multi-factorial condition that is characterized by a progressive loss of bone mass resulting in increased fracture (FX) risk and reduced lifespan(1).
