  Exploiting the Collective Behaviour of Catalytic Colloids to Make Optoelectronic Devices
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalytic active colloids are able to produce rapid enhanced motion but also possess unusual additional interactions. The interactions can cause colloids to organise into new arrangements that can have interesting optoelectronic properties, which may be used for new technologies.
  Understanding Elastomer Behaviour in the Development of Performance Tires
  Prof D G Bucknall
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will explore the use of elastomer-polymer blends to develop improved performance in car and truck tire performance. The project is a collaboration between HWU and Continental Tires (Germany).
  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Recycling and degradation scope of anhydride-epoxide co-polymers
  Dr B Ward, Dr A Paul
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The demand for plastics is vast, with 348 million tonnes being produced in 2017 alone,1 and the trend for plastic production is increasing exponentially year-on-year.
  NSIRC 175 PhD Studentship – Prediction of fatigue limit of additive manufactured materials
  Dr M Dore, Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In fatigue design, it is important to know the fatigue limit of the material to be used in order to avoid fatigue failure.
  EPSRC supported PhD with Integrated Study: How well do models of particle motion represent industrial reality?
  Dr A Ingram
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular or particulate materials are common in nature and in process engineering, particularly as products such as instant foods, pharmaceuticals and consumer goods such as washing powders.
  Compartment fire-fighting and fire dynamics - Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship
  Dr R Carvel, Dr R Hadden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship. Fire adapts to its environment. When a fire becomes established in a compartment within a building or structure, the fire behaviour depends upon the nature of the fuel, the airflow dynamics in the space and the heat exchange between the fire and its environment.
  Efficient discrete-element modelling of flexible elongated particles
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particulate materials are ubiquitous in nature and in industry (e.g. sand, sugar, corn, ore pellets) and are fundamental to many industrial fields (e.g.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
  Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Sessile Droplets
  Prof S K Wilson, Dr A Wray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The behaviour of sessile droplets is an area of very active international research, with new publications appearing on an almost daily basis and entire conferences now dedicated to the topic.
  Hydrogen and Ammonia production integrating high pressure chemical looping
  Dr V Spallina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced energy and chemical plants require new reactors and processes designed to combine high efficiency, attractive economics and reduced pollutant emissions.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In polymer extrusion, the behaviour of the flow of materials along the screw shows highly variable nature as it is gradually changing from solid to molten state.
  Life cycle assessment of current and future passenger transport technologies in the UK
  Dr S Parsons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the coming years, the electric powertrain is expected to replace fossil fuelled vehicles. From an environmental perspective, there are still many uncertainties when assessing the potential life cycle impacts of future powertrain technologies.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS). The Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Automotive Propulsion Systems (AAPS) at the University of Bath is offering at least seven fully funded four-year studentships to join the second cohort of students in September 2020.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on mechanical testing of recyclable vitrimer composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitrimers are a groundbreaking development in polymer chemistry. This new class of polymers is neither thermoset, nor thermoplastic, but inherits properties from both polymer classes.
  A crystal engineering approach for novel Pickering formulations with controlled release properties
  Dr E Simone, Prof B Murray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims at developing novel sustainable, biocompatible multiphase formulations (e.g., emulsions, foams) for the controlled release of active ingredients, applying a unique crystal engineering approach.
