  Heat Energy Transfer – Nanomaterial, Nanofluid for Heating & Cooling (PHDCEPS192004)
  Dr M Yaseen
Application Deadline: 17 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inter disciplinary research –chemical and engineering science graduate welcome. Fully funded for UK or EU students. With the global requirement for energy consumption increasing efforts to find alternative energy source as well as to increase the efficiency of available energy usage are in now paramount.
  Understanding and Engineering E. coli biofilm formation
  Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biofilms are communities of bacteria living together, bound by a self-produced extracellular matrix, often attached to a solid surface (Hall-Stoodley et al., 2004).
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  The Migration of Droplets in Multi-Material Problems and Dispersed Multiphase Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The relevance of droplet dynamics and related non-equilibrium phenomena in several industrial applications and manufacturing techniques calls for new advanced studies using the tools of thermodynamics and computational fluid dynamics.
  Process and material design and enhancement for the additive manufacturing and 3D printing of the wax materials
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project is on designing the process and material for 3D printing of the wax objects used in the investment casting process of automotive and aerospace parts.
  NSIRC195 PhD Studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd) – Multimodal Drones for Remote Inspection of Inaccessible Surfaces
  Mr G Asfis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Institution. National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC). PhD Industrial Supervisor. Georgios Asfis. Application Deadline.
  A crystal engineering approach for novel Pickering formulations with controlled release properties
  Dr E Simone, Prof B Murray, Dr A Sarkar
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.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  Neptune – Inkjet printing digital image generation and compensation for surface chemistry effects
  Prof C Tuck
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD studentship Sponsored by Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI). Based at the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM). University of Nottingham.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Magnesium alloy implants: corrosion effects on its mechanical performance
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resorbable metals, including magnesium- and iron-based metal alloy, were investigated intensively as biomaterials for production of orthopaedic implant and stents.
