  Application of novel ceramic synthesis to the development of lithium-containing fuels for nuclear fusion
  Dr A Gandy, Dr R Boston
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear fusion is an attractive alternative to fission because it offers the potential for power generation without the production of greenhouse gases and long-lived radioactive waste.
  Bioengineered Heart Tissue for the treatment of heart failure
  Prof I Roy, Prof J Haycock
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a huge burden in the UK and a leading cause of death in the country. Myocardial infarction (MI) is one of the most common causes of CVD.
  Development of novel powder routes for the manufacture electrical drives and motors.
  Prof I Todd
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacture (sometimes referred to as 3D Printing) of metals is starting to become more widely accepted a technology for the production of critical structural components.
  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  FAST-forge of AM metal-metal composites
  Dr M Jackson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Critical aerospace components manufactured from titanium alloys and nickel superalloys tend to be over engineered due to the restrictive melt-wrought-machining route.
  Magnetostrictive 4D printing for aircraft damage monitoring and repair
  Prof N Morley
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to use additive layer manufacturing to develop 4D magnetostrictive structures for use in structural health monitoring of carbon fibre composites.
  Novel magnetic architectures for next generation electric vehicles
  Prof D Allwood
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will develop high performance permanent magnet materials based on Nd-Fe-B materials for automotive applications. This research will be guided by computer modelling being performed by another PhD student project.
  Optimising safe electrochemical performance in nanoparticulate lithium-ion battery conversion anodes through smart synthetic control
  Dr N Reeves-McLaren, Dr R Boston
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available for the study of novel conversion anode materials for lithium-ion batteries.
  Oxide ion conductors for intermediate temperature fuel cells
  Prof I M Reaney, Prof D Sinclair
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking candidates with an undergraduate degree in materials science and engineering or a related discipline with a strong interest in sustainable functional materials and devices to work on the development of intermediate temperature oxide fuel cells in collaboration with Johnson Matthey PLC.
  Peripheral Nerve Tissue Engineering using Natural Polymers
  Prof I Roy, Prof J Haycock
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peripheral nerve injuries through trauma, and sometimes surgery, result in over 300,000 cases each year in the EU. In contrast to the central nervous system, peripheral nerves have some ability to repair.
  Ultra-low temperature sintering of Li based ceramics for energy storage
  Prof D Sinclair, Dr R Boston
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cold sintering is a revolutionary ceramic technology in which densification is induced at. Structure microstructure and properties will be investigated using XRD, SEM, TEM and impedance spectroscopy.
  Understanding glass melt chemistry in thermal treatment of nuclear waste
  Research Group: Immobilisation Science Laboratory
  Prof R Hand
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This fully funded 3.5 year PhD project, which is part of the TRANSCEND programme, is intended to develop a deeper understanding of how glass chemistry can be used to maximise waste incorporation while minimising volatilisation during the nuclear waste vitrification.
