  Four-year EngD scholarship with the National Composites Centre: Continuous Fibre Composites – Fatigue Behaviour Prediction
  Prof IK Partridge
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Faculty/School/Department. Faculty of Engineering (University of Bristol). Location. National Composites Centre, Bristol (BS16 7FS).
  Reliable Response and Behaviour of Autonomous Robots
  Prof S Veres
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autonomous robots sense the world, accept instructions in abstract form and decide what to do. They need to decide whether they accept the command or suggestions and make plans to achieve an objective.
  Rheological and mechanical behaviour of fibre composite with nanobiocomposites matrix for aerospace applications
  Dr S Vahid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The applications of nanocomposite materials derived from natural biopolymer components gaining more attraction because of their renewability, biodegradability, flexibility, and their capability of novel functionalities.
  Four-year EngD scholarship with the National Composites Centre: Exothermic reaction behaviour of single part aerospace grade epoxy resins
  Prof IK Partridge
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Faculty/School/Department. Faculty of Engineering (University of Bristol). Location. National Composites Centre, Bristol (BS16 7FS).
  PhD studentship sponsored by Nissan: Cognitive models of human traffic interaction for real-time behaviour interpretation
  Dr G Markkula, Prof NM Merat
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a strong push towards the development of driverless, automated vehicles (AVs).
  Joint PhD with RWTH Aachen: Behaviour of methanol/gasoline injection in spark ignition engines
  Prof M Brear
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spark ignition engines are the dominant prime mover in passenger vehicles today, and this will remain the case for decades to come whilst the vehicle fleet evolves towards greater hybridization and electrification.
  Cooperative Behaviour of Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles
  Prof S Veres
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a group of autonomous vehicles are on a mission to explore an unknown area and they cannot be remotely controlled, they need to collaborate with each other on gathering the maximum amount of information.
  Experimental and numerical characterisation and modelling of viscoelastic/viscoplastic crack growth in adhesive joints
  Dr G Alfano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesive bonding is a widely used technique in the aerospace and automotive industry, whose advantages with respect to more conventional connections of structural components include the great reduction of stress concentration and weight.
  Finite Element Modelling for Optimisation of Renewable packaging
  Dr G Menary
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims at developing fundamental knowledge of the processing behaviour for a new bio sourced polymer that will transform the packaging industry (an industry worth 57 billion) by replacing petroleum based PET containers for the carbonated soft drink (CSD) and water industries.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
  Optimising Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured (3D Printed) Titanium Alloys
  Dr M Kartal, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a common term used to describe the technology in which three-dimensional (3D) objects are fabricated by successive layers of material.
  Enhancing the long-term performance of advanced engine materials by controlling microstructure
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Life cycle assessment of current and future passenger transport technologies in the UK
  Dr S Parsons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the coming years, the electric powertrain is expected to replace fossil fuelled vehicles. From an environmental perspective, there are still many uncertainties when assessing the potential life cycle impacts of future powertrain technologies.
  Additively manufactured morphing components for aeroelastic applications
  Dr E Loukaides
Application Deadline: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Informal queries should be directed to Dr Evripides Loukaides ([email protected]). Fuel consumption and structural performance of aeroplanes strongly depends on the geometry and behaviour of the wings.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS). The Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS) at the University of Bath is offering at least seven fully funded four-year studentships to join the second cohort of students in September 2020.
