  Contact lenses for colour blind patients
  Dr H Butt, Prof S Dimov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology has a myriad of possible biomedical applications. A PhD position exists in the area of wearable bio-technologies with the focus on producing contact lenses for colour blind patients.
  Development of a gas turbine engine as a range extender
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham has a worldwide reputation in developing microengines. We are currently looking for a student to a radical microturbine engine as a range extender for electric cars.
  Dynamics of fire whirl in open and closed spaces: fundamental physics and modelling
  Dr M Jangi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fire whirl is an intense and potentially devastating phenomena which under the correct conditions can result in the formation of a tornado-like structure, i.e., the heat released from a fire changes the dynamics of the surrounding air causing a rotating column of air to form, which in turn increases the flame height and burning rate of the fire.
  Exploiting Nonlinearities for Broadband Vibration Energy Harvesting
  Dr P Alevras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. Ever larger quantities of sensors, microcontrollers and data transmitters are installed in buildings and machinery, supplying data and information that is key for a wide range of applications, such as healthcare, energy and transport to name but a few.
  Prediction of the collapse of high rise buildings in the event of extreme fires by the means of high-fidelity CFD-FEM tools
  Dr M Jangi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extreme fire events such as those in World Trade Centre in 2001 and the Grenfell Tower in London caused loss of lots of life and resources and distress in national and international scales.
  Production of two-dimensional materials with multiphase flows
  Dr J Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have received significant scientific attention due to their exceptional properties. The most well-known of this class of nanomaterial is graphene, however, there are numerous 2D materials which have the potential to transform existing and future technologies across a wide range of sectors.
  Self-lifting air bearings
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funding availability. Scholarships are available for students worldwide, and will be awarded on first come first served basis. Self-funded applications are welcome.
  The mitral valve: next generation of cardiovascular engineering replacement devices and materials
  Dr D Espino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Severe heart valve failure can require surgical repair or replacement of the mitral valve. Current medical devices do not fully exploit the next generation of materials, or their design, for targeted patient treatment and monitoring.
  Turbulence and mixing in transitional to supercritical two-phase flows: fundamental physics and modelling
  Dr M Jangi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project deal with the problem of injection of liquid jets into an environment where the pressure and temperature are higher than the critical point of the liquid.
