  A novel technique for handling missing data for structural health monitoring of HIC / SOHIC
  Dr S Soua, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Hydrogen Induced Cracking (HIC) / Stress Oriented Hydrogen Induced Cracking (SOHIC) is the process of hydrogen forming metals becoming brittle as a result of the diffusion mechanisms of hydrogen into the microstructure of steel structures.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Recycling of thermoset resins via the development of a solvent trigger de-curing system.
  Dr G Durand, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Most composites use thermosetting resins (>50%), there is currently no commercial recycling process for thermoset composites.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Development of methods to evaluate dynamic fracture toughness of metallic materials at very high loading rates under conditions of limited plastic deformation
  Dr Y Janin, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Many important industrial applications require that dynamic fracture toughness of materials is quantified and the accuracy of safety assessments depends on this material property.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) – Composite casing with variable thermal conductivity for passive cooling of battery elements
  Dr M Kazilas, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. The need for clean electric powered vehicles (EVs) will lead to a growth of battery elements both in size and power output.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat)
  Dr S Paul, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Structural Longevity for advanced marine vehicles in extreme environments
  Dr S Soua, Mr P Jamshidi, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. To ensure safety of any engineering system so that human life is protected and the environment is safe it is logical to be able to define when it is operating outside of its design condition.
  Structure and Function of Innate Immune Signalling in Mosquito Vectors
  Research Group: Dr M Gangloff
  Dr M Gangloff
Applications accepted all year round
Over the course of a long evolutionary history vector-borne pathogens have developed mechanisms to successfully disrupt natural defences in both their mammalian hosts and insect vectors in order to survive and establish infection.
  Mechanism of transmembrane receptor activation
  Dr M Hyvonen
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a PhD position, starting in October 2019, in the group Dr Marko Hyvonen at University of Cambridge (http://hyvonen.bioc.cam.ac.uk/) to study the mechanism of transmembrane signalling by TGFbeta family growth factors.
  Structure, regulation and dynamics of small G proteins and their interactions with membranes and effector proteins
  Dr H Mott
Applications accepted all year round
Our lab are interested in cell signalling via small G proteins of the Ras superfamily. We use a range of biochemical, biophysical and structural approaches to understand these fascinating proteins, which are involved in multiple cellular processes and are often deregulated in diseases such as cancer.
