  Mesoscopic modelling of Polymer Nano-composites
  Dr A Parnell, Dr B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The statistical theory of transport in polymer networks and gels, which are examples of mesoscale porous structures holds many challenges, including connections between structures across length scales, their associated mechanics, and role of thermal fluctuations.
  Band structure measurements in van der Waals heterostructures
  Dr N Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) beautifully reveals the momentum-resolved electronic structure at the surface of crystalline solids.
  Developing a Combined 105Pd NMR and XRD/Neutron Diffraction Approach to Enable the Study of Pd Metal Nanoparticle Systems Used in Industrial Catalytic Processes
  Dr J Hanna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An ability to clearly relate local (short range) structure to the function of any material is a critical feature for any catalytic system.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
