  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Modelling growth, deposition and breakage of dynamic particle structures (EPS2020/52)
  Dr V Francia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigation of the structure of cohesive powders under various flow regimes. Combining AI driven tools with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element methods (DEM), we will look into how dynamic particle structures form in complex systems.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  Reed Bed Use Within Scotch Whisky Distilleries to Treat Wastewater: A New Toolkit to Help Maximise Performance
  Dr M Taggart, Dr B Morrissey, Dr L Maricello, Dr P Gaffney
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for ‘greener’ wastewater treatment (WWT) is increasing globally. In particular, there is a need for more sustainable ‘passive’ approaches that do not rely so heavily (if at all) on hard engineering and continuous energy and chemical intervention/inputs.
  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.
  EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership: Complex Biological Products Manufacture

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological products and their manufacture are progressing to unparalleled levels of complexity. Examples include engineered biocatalysts, antibody-drug conjugates, multivalent vaccines and cellular therapies.
  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.
  Modelling Gas Turbine Blade Degradation in a High Fidelity Digital Twin
  Dr J Sumner, Dr N Simms
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponsored by EPSRC and Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,000 (tax free) plus fees* for four years.
  Hybrid dynamic modelling framework for bioprocess digitalisation and optimisation
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The background of this research is to explore and integrate a range of mechanistic and machine learning based modelling strategies to develop a multilevel digital framework (digital twin) for industrial bioprocess dynamic simulation and prediction, online optimisation (online learning), and product quality control.
  Multiscale dynamic visualisation framework for industrial mutants design and biological knowledge discovery
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current industrial bio-production processes exclusively uses yeast and bacteria as the microorganism hosts to synthesise valuable commercial compounds.
  Thermo-Mechanical Modelling for Structural Ceramics with Johnson Matthey
  Prof S Blackburn
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fatigue fracture is one of the failure modes in engineering ceramics where crack initiates, propagates, and finally results in failure under cyclic thermal loading.
  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat is the biggest form of energy use in the UK, accounting for more than 85% of the energy use in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  Classical Force Fields to Model Solid-State Molecular Organometallic Chemistry
  Prof S A Macgregor
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in computational chemistry and will involve the development of new molecular mechanics force fields to model solid-state molecular organometallic chemistry (SMOM-Chem).
  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).
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  Catalytic Origins of Organic Compounds in Extraterrestrial Space
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has been proposed that organic compounds are formed in protostellar nebulae through heterogeneous catalytic reactions, analogous to Fischer-Tropsch synthesis.
  Redefining Single Use Plastics: Life Cycle Analysis
  Dr RH Rothman, Prof P Styring
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently > 7.3 billion tons of plastic in the Earth System, rising to 40 Bt by 2050. ~10 Mt of plastics reach the oceans every year; 12 Bt are projected to be in landfill by 2050.
