  Dr A El-Kharouf, Prof R Steinberger-Wilckens
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded project with an industrial sponsor. This project focuses on the development of a low weight, low volume portable fuel cell device that can be used either as an APU system for heavy duty vehicles or power supply for portable applications.
  EPSRC supported EngD project. Modelling of wet milling.
  Prof S Blackburn
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet milling is a key production operation that is utilised to control particle size distribution (PSD) in slurry materials.
  EPSRC supported Engineering Doctorate. Prediction of complex industrial flows in the transitional regime.
  Prof M Simmons
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst the simulation of flow in industrial reactors is now relatively well mastered for a wide range of chemical and process engineering applications, there are still several areas that require research effort, including the simulation of multiphase flows, flows with complex rheology and microstructure, and transitional flows (i.e.
  EPSRC supported PhD with Integrated Studies. Improving Efficiency of Screening and Optimizing Processes for the Development of Specialty Chemicals – a ‘bottom-up’ Methodology
  Dr Z Zhang
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Innospec and University of Birmingham, Chemical Engineering. Dr Zhenyu J Zhang & Prof. Jon Preece. Tax free bursary of approx. £16,000 p.a.
  Flow dynamics of industrially relevant two-phase particle-liquid suspensions
  Prof M Barigou
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have recently been awarded a large multi-disciplinary EPSRC research programme grant to conduct research on multiscale two-phase particle-liquid flows in various flow systems (e.g.
  Formulation of a novel suspending medium for immobilised culture and tissue processing
  Dr L Grover
Application Deadline: 11 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone damage following blast or ballistic wounding results in the mechanic destruction and death of tissue at the site of injury. Surgeons debride away the tissue, removing any necrotic regions and this generally enables complete regeneration of the defect.
  Fundamental Studies on Submersible Bead Mills
  Prof M Simmons, Dr F Alberini
Application Deadline: 11 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet milling is a key production operation used to control particle size distribution (PSD) in high solids content solid/liquid suspensions, or slurries.
  Investigating the effect of nanoscale vibration cues on material surfaces for preventing bacterial adhesion
  Dr P Mendes, Dr T Overton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms respond to vibration, and bacteria are no exception. It is well established that external vibration can affect bacterial phenotypes, including surface adhesion, proliferation and virulence.
  Microfluidic manipulation of the properties of soft biocompatible materials via thermophoresis
  Dr D Vigolo
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit an innovative way to locally manipulate the mechanical properties and porosity of a soft material at the micron scale, and thus develop a new class of functionalised materials.
  New Point of Care Diagnostic Technology for Cancer Biomarkers
  Dr P Mendes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is now overwhelming evidence that glycosylation, the process by which sugars are attached to proteins, changes during the development and progression of various malignancies.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability. It is common for medical professionals to recommend patients to use viscosupplementation, injection of artificial lubricant into arthritic joints, as a non-surgical intervention, for treatment of early stage arthritis.
  Project Optimal Design of Sustainable Capsules for Targeted Delivery of Actives.
  Prof Z Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC supported EngD Project Optimal Design of Sustainable Capsules for Targeted Delivery of Actives. Supervisor Professor Zhibing Zhang.
  The application of positron emission particle tracking to the study of flow and mixing of solid-liquid systems in industrial stirred vessels
  Prof M Barigou
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research is concerned with the use of the novel non-invasive technique of Positron Emission Particle Tracking (PEPT) to study particle-liquid suspensions in mechanically agitated vessels.
  The development of a fuel cell stack (power generator) for APU applications
  Dr A El-Kharouf, Prof R Steinberger-Wilckens
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project focuses on the development of a low weight, low volume portable fuel cell device that can be used either as an APU system for small military vehicles or as a power supply for soldiers’ operation.
  Using Tribological Principles to Optimise Grinding Process for the Manufacturing of MFC
  Prof Z Zhang, Prof S Blackburn
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

During the manufacturing process of Micro-Fibrillated Cellulose (MFC), grinding media (beads of mm/cm diameter) are used to break down pulp into MFC.
  Long Period Hydrogel Grating on Optical Fibre for Biosensing
  Dr R Gupta, Dr S. Korposh
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project will bring together the expertise of Dr Ruchi Gupta (University of Birmingham, UoB) and Dr Serhiy Korposh (University of Nottingham, UoN) in hydrogel gratings [1] and optical fibres [2] to deliver a sensing platform.
