  Machine learning and dynamics: Soft materials under stress
  Prof P Bartlett
Application Deadline: 4 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD, which is a collaboration with Bayer CropScience labs in Mannheim, Germany, will use laser sheetmicroscopy and machine learning to predict the dynamics of soft materials under a load.
  Exploring family experiences, beliefs, and perspectives on service provision for Somali children and their families living with type 1 diabetes in Bristol.
  Prof J Shield, Dr S Redwood
Application Deadline: 22 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for a suitably qualified MRes student to study how Somali families view the diagnosis and care received when their child is diagnosed with Type 1 (insulin dependent) diabetes.
  Bio-inspired and biomimetic ceramic composites for medical applications
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural structural materials such as seashell nacre, human teeth and bones exhibit remarkable mechanical properties i.e. with combined high strength and toughness.
  Photocatalytic antimicrobial and antiviral coatings
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Surface contamination in public places plays an important role in the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens. Traditional cleaning and disinfection methods are proven largely ineffective for complete decontamination of surfaces by microbes and viruses, such as multidrug-resistant ‘superbugs’ and coronavirus.
  International Cotutelle PhD project: Self-diffusion in iron alloys at extreme conditions
  Dr O Lord, Prof S Clark
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project gives the candidate the opportunity to perform experimental research into the structure and chemistry of planetary interiors at two world class institutions, the University of Bristol (UK) and Macquarie University (Sydney Australia).
  Fatigue Characterisation of Composites at Cryogenic Temperatures
  Prof O Thomsen
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The materials and design techniques used in superconducting whole-body Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) magnets have been refined over time and now make more extensive use of composite materials than previously.
  Materials for Zero Carbon Energy Systems
  Prof CE Truman, Dr M Mostafavi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK has recently become the first major economy to commit to net zero greenhouse gas emissions, aiming to achieve this by 2050.
  PhD in SiC and GaN Power Electronics.
  Prof B Stark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Innovative semi-conductor materials, GaN and SiC, offer significant design and performance-based benefits over silicon and are a real competitive advantage.
  Laser driven novel particle sources
  Prof D Neely, Prof P McKenna
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD project involves investigation of the use of ultra-intense lasers to drive novel sources of secondary particles and radiation, with particular emphasis on the generation of muon beams or penetrating radiation capable of being used for imaging applications.
  Aerodynamics and Aeroacoustics of Novel Propellers
  Prof M Azarpeyvand
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an opening for a PhD student to work on aerodynamic and aeroacoustic performance of novel propellers.
  Nanoelectromechanical relay-based computing
  Dr D Pamunuwa
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to develop nanoelectromechanical relay-based computing and memory circuits for emerging paradigms such as the Internet of Things (IoT), all-electric vehicles and more-electric aircraft that require extreme energy efficiency and harsh-environment capability.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Composites Science, Engineering and Manufacturing (CoSEM CDT)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine shape-changing aircraft, cars or wind-turbines which have thermal management, sensing, actuating and self-repair functionality embedded within their materials and structures.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Doctoral training in Aerosol Science is now recruiting to our 4-year PhD programme for 2020 entry.
  Nanotopographical modulation of bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Prof B Su
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Surface topography has been known to alter bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation. It has become evident that surface hydrophobicity/hydrophilicity and effective contact area are the two main factors that are responsible for the different bacterial adhesive behaviour on surfaces.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantum Engineering

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded four year PhD studentships commencing in September 2020 are available for exceptional graduates with a background in mathematics, engineering, computer science and the physical sciences.
