  2D materials for bio- and chemical- sensing applications
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene and graphene-like two dimensional (2D) materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and transition metal oxides (TMOs), have attracted great attention for a wide variety of biosensing technologies in recent years.
  Defects and stress in 2D light-emitting materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional materials “beyond graphene”, including transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and 2D layers of pure elements, like phosphorus, have shown some exceptional properties.
  Emerging targeted radiation therapies: simulations and benchmarking of cellular response to radiation.
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr C Diget
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ionizing radiation is a highly effective way to treat cancer. It is used in about 50% of all cancer patients, either alone or in combination with surgery or chemotherapy.
  First principles modelling of defects in solar absorber materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of materials are emerging as promising candidates to replace silicon in the next generation of solar cells. They offer the prospect of high efficiency, low cost and flexibility allowing for their incorporation into building materials for example.
  From Big Bang nucleosynthesis to medical science: advanced electronic signal analysis for extreme-light experiments in nuclear science.
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr C Diget, Dr C Matei
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Extreme-Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) is currently under construction in Bucharest, Romania.
  Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording Using Exchange Bias
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr G Vallejo Fernandez
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) is considered to be the next technology to improve current magnetic recording densities. The principle of HAMR is that a laser delivers heat pulses via near field optics to the surface of a conventional disc with grains oriented in the perpendicular direction.
  Identifying promising materials for antiferromagnetic spintronics
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna, Prof A Hirohata
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Conventional microelectronic components such as transistors and solid-state memories process and store information by the manipulation of electrical currents.
  Modelling the properties of electron and hole polarons in materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strong coupling between electrons and phonons in some materials leads to the formation of small polarons (quasiparticles comprised of a localised electron and an associated polarisation field).
  Phase engineering 2D materials for next-generation membrane technologies
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr A Pratt
Application Deadline: 21 February 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.
  Using advanced camera image and data analysis to address an important hurdle for magnetic fusion energy
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr B Dudson, Prof B [email protected]
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A magnetically confined fusion tokamak reactor does not operate in isolation. Fusion reactions generate power which, in steady state, is transferred to surrounding surfaces.
