  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  3D Vision for Robots with Photonic Chip Interferometers (SAM10)
  Prof J Huntley, Dr P Ruiz
Application Deadline: 14 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF2014). In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field.
  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.
  Next generation hybrid-hybrid machining of critical aerospace parts
  Dr A Roy, Dr L Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Please describe the project, up to 250 words. *. The application of laser assisted machining/processing has shown promise in reducing tool wear in the machining of difficult-to-machine aerospace materials, such as, metal matrix composites (MMCs).
  Durability in concrete: understanding the influence of capillary pressures for controlling shrinkage and cracking in early age concrete (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Dr J Mendes
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The build-up of capillary pressures in the pore space in early age concrete can be responsible for the formation of cracks throughout a concrete element that can be ultimately responsible for the failure of a structure.
  Dynamics of complex fluids on Slippery Liquid Infused Substrates (SLIPS) (Advert Reference: FAC19/EE/MPEE/SEMPREBON)
  Dr C Semprebon, Dr G Wells
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a liquid comes into contact with a solid surface, its interface can be pinned by surface texture, giving rise to the ubiquitous phenomenon of the contact angle hysteresis [1].
  Rational engineering of NMDAR subunit-specific peptide affinity reagents and their pharmacological and functional characterisation as novel subtype specific NMDAR ligands.
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to engineer subunit-specific anti-GluN1/2/A/B polypeptide affinity reagents and to characterise their pharmacological specificity and functional activity on the recombinant NMDARs expressed in heterologous expression systems and on native NMDARs in hippocampal slice preparations.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  (BBSRC DTP) Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  PhD in Tactile Biomechanics and Neuroscience: How Do Humans Feel Friction?
  Dr RS Redmond
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Prosthetic and robotic hands demonstrate poor dexterity during object manipulation, often dropping objects. Humans rarely allow objects to slip because we can sense if an object is slippery and adjust our grip.
  Engineering electronic states in twisted van der Waals heterostructures
  Prof S J Bending, Dr E Da Como
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Prof Simon Bending (https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/simon-bending) and Dr Enrico Da Como (https://people.bath.ac.uk/edc25/) in the Department of Physics.
  Droplet Adhesion on Liquid-Repellent Surfaces

  The Simulation of Quantum Transport in Topological Insulators (TIs) and TI Based Nanoscale Field Effect Transistors (TI FETs)
  Dr G Edwards, Dr T. Papadopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of Nanoelectronics is concerned with the materials, devices, circuits and systems relevant to contemporary integrated circuits (ICs).
  Suppression of coffee-ring effect for printing pharmaceuticals (ASKOUNISAU20SCIEC)
  Dr A Askounis, Dr S Qi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The coffee-ring effect (CRE) is ubiquitous in our lives from the drying of a spilled coffee drop (hence the name) to the drying of rain drops on our windows.
