  Biophysics of light-induced motility in microalgae
  Dr M Polin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
  Crystallography and Functional Evolution of Atomically Thin Confined Nanowires
  Dr J Sloan, Dr J Lloyd-Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Encapsulated nanowires can be as small as a single atom in width and are the smallest one-dimensional materials. Their simplicity and robustness makes them ideal platforms for the study of fundamental properties of matter, such as phase transformations and the energetics of confined crystal structure formation.
  Diamond Magnetometry in Cars and Aircraft
  Dr G Morley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The sensing of weak magnetic fields has important applications in geo-surveying, navigation, and medicine. To measure them requires that we use the most sensitive detection techniques, however, to be commercially viable this must be done at an affordable cost.
  Hidden and conspicuous magnetic order in hyper-kagome magnets
  Dr O Petrenko
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main goal of the project is to experimentally study highly unusual magnetic properties of several gadolinium-containing garnets, primarily Gd3Ga5O12 (GGG), Gd3Al5O12 and Gd3Te2Li3O12.
  In-situ manipulation of ferroelectric structures at the atomic level
  Prof A Sanchez-Fuentes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ferroelectric materials are characterized by the existence of a finite electric polarization in absence of an external field below the Curie temperature.
  Platform Development for Diamond Quantum and Photonic Technologies
  Prof M E Newton, Dr B Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to optical initialisation, manipulation and readout of spin state of the nitrogen vacancy (NV-) defect in diamond at room temperature has ensured that this defect is recognised as one of the most promising systems for quantum magnetic/electric field as well as temperature sensing and a range of other quantum technologies.
  Quantum sensors for fundamental physics
  Dr A Datta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This theoretical project will produce the design principles for quantum sensors to tackle some of the most fundamental open problems in physics.
  Selective epitaxial growth of Silicon Carbide thin film materials
  Dr M Myronov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Silicon carbide (SiC) is a wide band gap compound semiconductor material attractive for future applications in high power and high frequency electronic devices, UV photonic devices and sensors including those for bio-medical, industrial, IoT and automotive sectors.
  Statistical Mechanics of Decision Making
  Prof R C Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optimisation under Uncertainty is a pervasive problem in real life. decisions have to be made (for example about a design) before one knows the full detail of how it will be challenged to perform.
  Structural and Spectroscopic Imaging with Advanced Electron Microscopies
  Dr R Beanland, Prof A Sanchez-Fuentes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project makes use of state-of-the-art aberration-corrected scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) for structural and spectroscopic imaging of extended defects in diamond.
