  Optical Simultons in Atomic Vapours
  Dr R M Potvliege, Dr S A Wrathmall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited by the Quantum, Light and Matter group of Durham University for a theoretical Ph.D. project on the formation and control of simultons in atomic media (two-colour solitonlike optical pulses, which can propagate with little attenuation over surprisingly long distances).
  Modelling Wetting on Structured Surfaces using the Lattice Boltzmann Method
  Dr H Kusumaatmaja
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The wetting behaviour of liquids on solid surfaces plays an important role for current and emerging technologies involving liquids from the nano- to the macro-scales.
  EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment invites high-quality applications from students from a broad range of academic backgrounds for 4-year taught and research PhD scholarships.
  Platform Technology to Enhance the Growth of Human Tissues In Vitro for Use in Biomedical Research and the Assessment of New Molecular Entities
  Prof S A Przyborski, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many molecules fail when tested in humans as activity data do not always extrapolate into man. Accordingly, there is demand to develop new biomedical in-vitro assays to test compounds in human tissues earlier in product development.
  PhD Opportunities in Fusion. Training the next generation of fusion scientists….

Funding Type

PhD Type

Training the next generation of fusion scientists…. Fusion has the potential to meet our energy needs in a sustainable way, with minimum impact on the environment.
  Local Tracking of Single Ions Dynamics at Solid-Liquid Interfaces
  Dr K Voitchovsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ions are everywhere in nature and technology. They play a crucial role in countless processes, from the salt we use in food to keeping the electrostatic balance in our bodies.
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Sciences for Medicine - 4 year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The CDT in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed) is a joint venture between Newcastle and Durham Universities. It will train the next generation of researchers at the interface of molecular and medical sciences, business skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

Funding Type

PhD Type

16 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT) commencing in September 2020, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
