  Low-power electronic interface for environmental sensors
  Dr S Mitra
Applications accepted all year round
The deterioration of water quality, caused by climatic/seasonal changes, global-warming, or industrial waste etc. is a major global concern.
  Crumbling reefs: quantifying risk of cold-water coral habitat loss in a changing ocean
  Dr S Hennige
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Cold-water corals (CWC) are key habitat-forming organisms found throughout the world’s oceans from 30 to 3000 m deep. The complex three-dimensional frameworks made by these vulnerable marine ecosystems support high biodiversity and commercially important species.
  Facilitating the circular economy in India’s food security: the social, economic and agronomic barriers and opportunities of sewage
  Dr A Gathorne-Hardy, Dr K V Heal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Project summary. This interdisciplinary project combines social and environmental science to quantify the potential benefits of sewage for Indian agriculture, as well as understanding the social barriers to sewage use, and identifying opportunities to overcome these.
  Seismicity induced by geothermal energy production
  Prof I Main, Dr M Naylor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Extraction of geothermal energy commonly induces micro-earthquakes, and sometimes these are large enough to be felt by the general population.
  Forecasting of catastrophic failure in porous media
  Prof I Main, Dr A Bell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2019
Catastrophic brittle failure of porous materials results from the co-operative behaviour of a large population of growing micro-cracks, eventually organising themselves to produce a through-going fault.
  Contact models for DEM simulations of non-spherical particles
  Dr K Hanley, Dr J Blackford
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The discrete element method (DEM) is a simulation tool originally developed in the 1970s. DEM allows complex systems of particles to be modelled, enabling analysis of the particle-scale mechanisms that underlie the complexity of the overall material response.
  School of Engineering & Physical Sciences – Fully funded PhD studentships available
The School of Engineering & Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University is now advertising fully funded Doctoral Training Partnerships and James Watt Scholarships in the School of Engineering & Physical Sciences for 2019.
  3D laser beam shaping
  Dr R Carter
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Combining 2D beam shaping elements (including refractive and diffractive elements) with bespoke focussing optics to shape a laser beam though the entire focal volume rather than in a single focal plane.
  3D printing of micro-scale graded shape memory components for in-vivo actuated medical devices
  Prof D P Hand
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Micro-robots for medicine require highly controlled actuation at a micro-scale to provide controlled motion, testing of tissue compliance, biopsy, etc, and this is a prospect offered by functionally-graded shape memory alloys (SMAs).
  Advanced computational methods for improved cancer monitoring and personalised treatment
  Prof S McLaughlin
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
This project consists of investigating advanced image processing methods (2D/3D segmentation, image restoration, object detection…) to extract information about tumours and surrounding tissues in order to complement information provided by local measurements (e.g., pH/O2 readings, biopsis…).
