  Phase engineering 2D materials for next-generation membrane technologies
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr A Pratt
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

2D material membranes allow the investigation of processes vital to the existence of life and provide a platform for developing next-generation nanofiltration, purification, and healthcare technologies.
  Advanced Raman spectroscopy of bioreactor production processes to develop enhanced feedback control strategies
  Dr C Spencer, Dr S Goldrick, Dr M Thomas
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Metabolic profiling of mammalian cultures enables a greater understanding of the physiological state of cells throughout a bioreactor run in addition to monitoring the key metabolite concentrations.
  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 Micro/Nanofabricated Anti-icing Surfaces
  Dr S Lowrey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available in the experimental development of anti-icing surfaces. This position will be hosted by The University of Otago's Department of Physics and will be carried out in Prof.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  Photovoltaic Engineering: Revolutionary Technologies for Silicon Solar Cells
  Dr K C Fong, Prof A.W. Blakers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar photovoltaics and wind currently constitutes more than 60% of global annual net new generation capacity. We are on the pivotal point of a massive revolution in favor of renewable energy sources.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) Intelligent and directed laser-based spectroscopy(Fraunhofer UK Research Ltd)
  Prof D Reid, Prof S Marshall
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser-based spectroscopic techniques - encompassing LIBS, Raman and deep-infrared absorption spectroscopy – offer unprecedented performance for molecular and elemental diagnostics.
  Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.
  Dr M Jones, Dr G Hunter, Dr M Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.
  Bioinspired sensing: distributed sensory surface
  Dr T Assaf
Application Deadline: 25 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Informal enquiries. Dr Tareq Assaf ([email protected]). Robotic perception is crucial for robotic systems to advance and perform more and more complex tasks autonomously or semi-autonomously.
  Ultra high resolution SRAS
  Prof M Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of development of advanced non-destructive evaluation (NDE) techniques leading to the award of an Engineering Doctorate (EngD) degree.
  Modelling the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for continuous manufacture
  Dr M Jorge, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-Organic Frameworks, or MOFs for short, are exciting nanoporous materials at the forefront of many new scientific discoveries.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Functional nanoparticles for plant systems (EPS2020/37)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop nanoparticle-based reagent for delivery of bioactive molecules to plants. Food shortage is likely to be a major concern in the next decade if the global population grows at the current rate.
  Magnetic molecular imprinted polymers (MMIP) for detecting biohazard pollutants (EPS2020/35)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop MMIP for binding and detecting harmful biomolecules in the environment. Biohazard pollutants are health concerns but they are usually at a very low concentration that many conventional monitoring techniques are inefficient.
  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.
