  Better discrete-element simulations through detailed finite-element contact modelling
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Discrete Element Method (DEM) is increasingly used in industry and academia, to simulate particulate materials. DEM models individual particles, and thus requires efficient yet realistic calculation of inter-particle forces through an appropriate contact law.
  Fuel structure effects on wildfire hazard assessments
  Dr R Hadden
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wildfire risk is changing in the UK. As the climate changes it is anticipated that the UK will experience longer periods of drier, hotter weather and that this will result in conditions that mean wildfire occurrence and fire danger will increase.
  Novel Camera Technology for Imaging of Cell Collectives - Start date: 1st October 2019
  Prof D Faccio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Glasgow (UofG) is home to world-leading research in the fields of imaging and computing science. UofG is also home to the UK Hub for Quantum Imaging Technologies, QuantIC (https://quantic.ac.uk/) who are co-funding this PhD research project in collaboration with a Horiba.
  Experimental and Theoretical Understanding of Rhenium Precipitation in Tungsten for Nuclear Fusion Applications
  Dr J Hinks, Dr M Molinari
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear fusion promises unlimited supplies of low-carbon energy but major technological challenges must be overcome before this becomes a reality.
  Ductility & Brittleness in Refractory and High-entropy Alloys
  Dr C Brandl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For a significant increase in operating temperatures in energy conversion processes, alternative constituent phases for new high-temperature alloys beyond tradition Ni-basis superalloys have to be explored.
  Research Studentship in Development of a Practical Soil Constitutive Model Suitable for the Design of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations in Sand, Considering Cyclic Loading – Numerical Analysis
  Prof C M Martin, Prof H Burd
Application Deadline: 12 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Studentship in Development of a Practical Soil Constitutive Model Suitable for the Design of Offshore Wind Turbine Foundations in Sand, Considering Cyclic Loading – Numerical Analysis.
  Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures.
  CONTROL OF CAPILLARY TRAPPING BY VIBRATIONS
  Research Group: Energy Technologies
  Dr A Vorobev
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr A. Vorobev. Project description.
  Nucleation of organic crystals in flows: Discover how organic crystals nucleate and how fluid flows can be used to influence this
  Prof J Sefcik, Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nucleation is a birth of new crystals.
  X-ray studies of dynamic fluctuations in Nano-scaled artificial Spin-Ices
  Dr T PA Hase
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geometric frustration, in which pair-wise interactions are incompatible with the underlying lattice can be found in many fields. Exploring the effect in bulk crystals is limited by the inability to modify the interactions in a systematic manner.
