  An integrated approach for damage identification in composite materials (KB2UF2019)
  Dr K Baxevanakis, Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 30 November 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-destructive inspection based on acoustics is today one the primary methods for the identification of damage precursors in components and structures.
  Heterogeneous materials in extreme environments: multiscale models of chemo-mechanical processes
  Dr L Figiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extreme volumetric expansion, high temperature gradients, and/or high-frequency vibrations can compromise structural integrity and safety of modern electronic systems (e.g.
  Statistics of porous media attributes and mixing processes state variables across scales
  Dr M Mousavi-Nezhad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typical observations of porous media attributes arise from a variety of techniques which have their own spatial resolution and associated uncertainty.
  Development and optimisation of novel pultruded Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) cellular–concrete hybrid beam
  Prof E Ganjian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate the structural performance/behaviour of new pultruded FRP cellular ‘PolyCell’ – concrete hybrid beams.
  Electrical interactions between Cathodic Protection systems and surface- bonded CFRP composites in RC structures
  Prof E Ganjian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In practice the application of cathodic protection systems in conjunction with CFRP- strengthening work to RC structures, is often required if the structural element remains exposed to a corrosive environment during its extended service life.
  Various treatments of Crumb Tyre rubber to improve concrete properties
  Prof E Ganjian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of this project is to study the effectiveness of surface pre-treatment by Ultraviolet (UV) light and Ultrasonic treatment as a replacement for the natural aggregate in concrete mixtures on the rubberised concrete properties.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Enhancing the long-term performance of advanced engine materials by controlling microstructure
  Dr K Baxevanakis
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. KBUF2019. Start date of studentship. 01 July 2019, 01 October 2019, 01 January 2020 or April 2020. Closing date for applications.
  Ultraprecision machining in Silicon Carbide - Ref: ARUF2518
  Dr A Roy
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Silicon carbide is of great importance as a structural ceramic as it is amongst the hardest materials known. Machining silicon carbide parts into the required shape and form for a given application is extremely difficult, yielding unwanted defects.
  PhD Studentship in flood and landslide risk to transport infrastructure
  Prof S Glendining, Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 24 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. September 2020, 4 years. Overview. Road and rail networks typically follow long, level routes adjacent to rivers making the ground that supports them particularly vulnerable to flood induced modes of failure.
  Innovation readiness of public sector procurement practices in the construction industry (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/SAMWINGA)
  Dr V Samwinga, Prof D Greenwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carillion’s collapse in January 2018, which will cost taxpayers at least £148 million and affected up to 30,000 subsidiary businesses, has intensified debate over the effectiveness of UK public procurement practices and how risk is dealt with.
  7 fully-funded 4-year MRes + PhD studentships at the EPSRC CDT in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently looking to recruit talented students from different academic backgrounds for a number of fully funded studentships to carry out cutting edge research within the broad, cross-disciplinary and interconnected field of Resilient Infrastructure.
  Advanced Optical Fibre Fabrication and Applications
  Prof J Canning
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced Optical Fibre Fabrication. Areas can include new Bi fibres (led by Prof. Peng at UNSW; Prof Canning is a Conjoint Professor) for amplifiers, lasers and sensors and novel structured fibres including photonic crystal fibres, Fresnel fibres, spun structured optical fibres and so on.
  Multi-Sensor Data Fusion and Smart Decision Making
  Prof L Mihaylova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop scalable models and algorithms for fusion of big data in complex systems. The project will focus on problems from smart cities –such as traffic modelling, mobility prediction and control.
  Nonlinear control of grid-tied inverters for stabilising future smart grids
  Dr G Konstantopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Power systems stability has been an active area of research for many decades. However, recently, the large number of renewable energy sources being integrated to the power network has started to significantly affect the stable and reliable operation of the grid.
  The role of the road network on city economic performance
  Dr G Punzo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims at mapping the transport enabled connectivity of the city economy. Using traffic data from Sheffield City Council and insights from the census, this project will draw a picture of mobility within Sheffield an across the City Region.
