  Programming anisotropy into responsive soft materials
  Prof JR Stokes, Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to develop new kinds of soft nanomaterials using our recent discovery of liquid crystal hydroglass phase in suspensions of nanocellulose colloidal rods.
  Realising Industry 4.0: Joining Machine Learning with Additive Manufacture for Design Optimisation (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Prof M Dargusch
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Industry 4.0 is a group of disruptive technologies that is transforming manufacturing and has the potential to revolutionise the manufacture of a range of high value products leading to significantly improved more efficient and more sustainable designs.
  Understanding the changing risk of severe thunderstorms by novel stochastic modelling of extreme hail and wind hazards (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr M Mason
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe thunderstorms are responsible for billions of dollars in damage to buildings, critical infrastructure and agricultural crops every year.
  Nano-hydrogel bandage for non-invasive Raman monitoring of chronic wound healing (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wounds (CW), wounds that persist more than 3 months, have been referred to as a major and snowballing public health burden which adversely affects the quality of life.
  Maximising the benefits of desalinated seawater supply networks for agricultural sustainability (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Prof N McIntyre
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Globally, water stress is driving the replacement or augmentation of traditional freshwater supplies with desalinated seawater supplies.
  Programming and Real-Time Monitoring Light Degradability of Polymers
  Dr H Frisch, Dr B Poad
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic polymers are arguably the class of man-made materials that have most shaped the last century. However, the majority of polymers results from radical polymerization techniques yielding all carbon backbones, which critically prevent their degradation and pose a vital threat to the future of our planet.
  Single atom on ferroelectric layers for controlled photocatalytic CO2 reduction
  Dr L Kou, Dr J Xu
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will focus on the use of atomistic simulations to calculate the optical adsorption, band alignment and reaction barriers/pathway, based on the density functional theory.
  Mapping oxidation state and crystallisation dynamics in metal oxide thin films for catalysts and energy storage devices
  Prof A O'Mullane, Dr M Jones
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the heterogeneous chemical and structural changes that occur in thin metal oxide films when used as catalysts for water splitting to produce hydrogen is critical for the development of more efficient materials.
  Single-layer 2D heterostructures on epitaxial graphene for future electronics
  Prof N Motta
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we aim at growing new two dimensional (2D) heterostructures based on graphene epitaxially grown on insulating SiC.
  Characterising sequence-controlled polymers in real space: polymer genome through submolecular imaging
  Prof L Barner
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student is needed for a project focused on developing an approach to the characterisation of sequence-controlled polymers (SCPs) by direct spatial investigation using high resolution scanning probe microscopy.
  Dissecting the ageing transcription factor network to set a rational basis for age-intervention strategies
  Dr C Nefzger, Dr M Naval-Sanchez
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

On a cellular level, ageing appears to be a largely epigenetic phenomenon that can be manipulated by pluripotency induction. Transdifferentiation and iPS technologies are forms of transcription factor (TF)-mediated cell reprogramming.
  Programming Polymers
  Dr H Frisch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD position on the interface of organic and polymer chemistry available in the Soft Matter. Materials laboratory located at Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia).
  Hearing colour and seeing sound - switchable polymer molecular imaging agents for visualizing disease progression
  Dr N Boase
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular imaging aims to use non-invasive techniques to probe and visualize molecules in the body, which can be used to measure biochemical processes and disease progression.
  Identifying pharmacological targets for osteoporosis intervention using whole-genome and exome sequencing of bone related phenotypes
  Dr J Kemp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoporosis (OP) is an often asymptomatic multi-factorial condition that is characterized by a progressive loss of bone mass resulting in increased fracture (FX) risk and reduced lifespan(1).
  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
