  Efficient discrete-element modelling of flexible elongated particles
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particulate materials are ubiquitous in nature and in industry (e.g. sand, sugar, corn, ore pellets) and are fundamental to many industrial fields (e.g.
  Improving Throughput in a Wireless Mobile Network using Successive Interference Cancellation with Power Randomization
  Dr M Tunnicliffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) allows simultaneous transmissions on a common physical channel to be detected simultaneously by receivers, given that the received power levels are sufficiently different both from each other and from the ambient noise.
  Studying quantum motion using a vibrating carbon nanotube
  Dr E Laird
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To predict the behaviour of a small particle, for example, an electron moving through a molecule, it is essential to use the concept of quantum superposition – the particle may traverse a superposition of multiple paths simultaneously.
  Finite element modelling of heart valve deformation and mitral regurgitation after mitraclip implantation - Ref: LG2UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

he mitral valve (MV) is a complex structure regulating forward flow of blood between the left atrium (LA) and left ventricle (LV) of human heart.
  Quantum memory effects in charge density wave transition metal chalcogenides
  Dr E Da Como, Prof S J Bending
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Dr Enrico Da Como (https://people.bath.ac.uk/edc25/) and Prof Simon Bending (https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/simon-bending) in the Department of Physics.
  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Research Studentship in Impact Engineering: On the shock compression response of single crystal tin
  Prof D Eakins
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Studentship in Impact Engineering. 4-year D.Phil. studentship. Project. On the shock compression response of single crystal tin.
  Animats - neural culture controlled robots for closed-loop neuroscience
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will continue research started at the University of Reading on animats - robotic platforms controlled in real time by activity of biological neuron cultures and will investigate the methods for implementing efficient conditioning protocols.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Viscoelastic Damping of Vibrations that Occur in Space Flight
  Dr A Viquerat
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During flight vibrations up to 2000 Hz may be experienced. These vibrations can affect the behaviour of sensitive components and potentially the overall flight characteristics of the system.
  Phase engineering 2D materials for next-generation membrane technologies
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr A Pratt
Application Deadline: 30 April 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.
  Control of drill-string vibrations
  Dr S S Aphale, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Drill-strings possess a rich nonlinear dynamic behaviour. Torsional vibrations are a main cause of concern and current area of research interest in the wider academic as well as industrial research community.
  Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Responsive Foams
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiphase flow systems such as foams contribute considerably to the world economy and have a wide range of applications from food, medical and fire-fighting to environmental treatment, mineral processing and oil and gas industries.
  PhD in Novel Nanophotonic Phenomena
  Dr F Rodríguez Fortuño
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanophotonics is a thriving field of science which studies the interaction between light and matter structured at the nanoscale, with myriads of applications in information technologies, imaging, security, sensing and healthcare.
  Modelling of Dislocation-Microstructure Interaction at a Short Crack Tip - Ref: LG1UF2018
  Dr L Zhao
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel-based superalloys are particularly used in applications involving high temperatures and stresses, such as the critical gas-turbine blades and discs in aerospace and power-generation industries.
