  Dr G Weymouth
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. G D Weymouth. Co-supervisor , B Ganipathisubramani. Project description. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is increasingly used to analyze the hydrodynamic features of the built and natural environment; from warming ocean currents to high-speed ocean liners.
  Experimental Aerodynamics and Environmental Flows
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Flight Mechanics
  Dr C Vanderwel
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Christina Vanderwel. Project description. There are two openings for PhD students to work on “Simulating urban air pollution in the lab”.
  Integrated optical elements for miniaturised atom traps
  Research Group: Photonic Systems Circuits & Sensors
  Prof P Smith
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Peter Smith,. Co-supervisor Dr Corin Gawith, Dr James Gates & Dr Christopher Holmes. Project description. This project will involve development of glass on silicon waveguide components to couple light into magneto-optical traps.
  ISVR-SPCG-569: Development of a small -scale, low cost underwater vehicle for acoustic noise assessment
  Dr J Cheer, Prof S.R. Turnock, Prof S Daley
Application Deadline: 6 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing international trade is leading to an explosion in the amount of shipping worldwide, which in turn is increasing the levels of noise pollution in our oceans.
  Sensing tribology within heavy machines
  Research Group: nCATS
  Prof R J K Wood
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Robert Wood. Co-supervisor Terry Harvey. Project description. This PhD is aligned with a major EPSRC funded research being conducted at the national centre for advanced tribology at Southampton (nCATS) in collaboration the machine learning and sensors research groups in ECS.
  Avalanche dynamics on desert dunes: Processes and drivers, from ancient to modern
  Dr J Nield, Dr R Ewing, Dr M Baddock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Avalanching is responsible for wind-blown dune migration on Earth and Mars and because avalanches are preserved in dune stratigraphy, they are the most direct way that we can interpret past wind-climate conditions.
  Development of Robust Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping Techniques for Autonomous Underwater Vehicles Operating under the Polar Sea-Ice
  Prof E Rogers, Dr A. Phillips, Dr G Salavasidis
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Despite the considerable effort directed towards AUV navigation, a self-contained solution remains a key challenge.
  Dynamics of a wave propelled surface vessel
  Dr N Townsend, Dr D Taunton, Dr M Tan
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to establish the fundamental principles of a novel, submerged tandem flapping foil mechanism to convert ocean wave energy directly into propulsion for ASVs.
  Earth and Environment from Fiber Optic and Seismic Wave Analyses
  Dr C Rychert, Dr A Masoudi, Dr N Harmon, Prof M Srokosz
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Much of our direct imaging and understanding of Earth’s subsurface comes from data collected by relatively sparse deployments of seismometers.
  Getting the most out of deep-sea images for ecological assessment
  Dr B Thornton, Dr J Durden, Dr B Bett
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Monitoring benthic communities is a fundamental, and in many jurisdictions legal, requirement for the conservation of habitats (e.g.
