  The Effect Of Osteoporosis On Bone Cell Response To Strontium.
  Dr S Clarke, Dr F Buchanan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis mainly affects older people and causes an increased risk of vertebral, hip and wrist fractures with every decade over 50 years of age leading to an incidence of nine million fragility fractures per year worldwide.
  Cathepsin Z as a novel potential biomarker for osteoporosis
  Dr D Barraclough, Prof L Ranganath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Dr. Dong Barraclough, Professor Lakshminarayan Ranganath and Professor Sobhan Vinjamuri.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
  Applications of Advanced Imaging and Simulation Methods in Failure Analysis of Composite Materials
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof I. Sinclair
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The exploitation of lightweight composite materials represent a vital element in the future efficiency and sustainability of the transportation sector.

  Dr T Sui, Dr M Oldfield
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Driven by the rising ageing population in the UK who suffer from oral disease and need dental treatment, there has been a growing demand for reliable dental restorative products (e.g.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Life enhancement of aerospace structures using laser surface modification
  Prof M Fitzpatrick
Application Deadline: 24 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate the application of laser shock peening to aerospace alloys, combining experimental and modelling approaches to optimise the application of the technique to trial components for current development programmes.
