  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

Funding Type

PhD Type

16 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT) commencing in September 2019, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
  Chiral spin structures in antiferromagnet-ferromagnet bilayers
  Dr T A Moore
Application Deadline: 21 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chiral twists in atomic magnetic structure are seen in ferromagnets at the interface with heavy metals such as Pt and Ir, leading to topologically stable magnetic domains known as skyrmions.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  ISIS Beamline Facility Development Studentship: Opto-Electronic Control of Magnetism
  Dr O Cespedes, Prof S Langridge
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project to be carried out in collaboration between the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, a world-leading centre for research at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) near Oxford, and the University of Leeds.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Quantum dot superstructures
  Dr K Critchley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet chemical synthesis methods can produce semiconductors that consist of 100s to 10,000s of atoms – known as colloidal quantum dots.
  Teaching a machine to move atoms
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr A Sweetman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is now routine in world leading laboratories to perform experiments where single atoms can be placed with atomic precision. These experiments are performed using scanning probe microscopes, and allow us to study the electrical and chemical properties of matter with sub-molecular, and even “sub-atomic” precision.
  The physics of glass - fundamental mechanisms and novel applications
  Dr J Mattsson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and behavior of glassy disordered non-equilibrium solids is one of the deepest unsolved fundamental questions in physics.
  The physics of microgels and other soft colloids
  Dr J Mattsson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transitions where a material goes from a fluid state to an arrested but still disordered state arise in a diverse range of systems (colloidal dispersions, molecular or polymeric fluids, granular systems, emulsions, foams, pastes, and biological cells).
