The EPSRC IRC Proteus (Proteus) - Multiplexed ’Touch and Tell’ Optical Molecular Sensing and Imaging - Lifetime and Beyond” is an Interdisciplinary Research Collaboration between the Universities of Edinburgh, Bath, Heriot Watt, Durham and Dundee.
  Mining Arguments from Natural Language Resources - Project ID SOC0015
  Dr S Wells
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Argument Mining is the automatic identification and extraction of argumentative structure from within real world textual resources such as Internet discourse, legal documents, or newspaper articles.
  PhD studentship in Security and Privacy of Distributed Systems, Networks, and the Internet of Things.
  Dr T Elahi
Application Deadline: 15 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One fully funded PhD position to work with Dr. Tariq Elahi in the School of Informatics at the University of Edinburgh, in the area of Security and Privacy of Distributed Systems, Networks, and the Internet of Things.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Computational Techniques for the Flat Imager
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA has patented a novel infrared (IR) imaging device known within the company as the Flat Imager. The Flat Imager is similar in design to a TOMBO* imaging system, in so far as the device will capture multiple similar images of a scene.
  Doctor of Engineering (Eng D): Process optimisation strategies for multiple COSI techniques
  Prof D Reid, Dr C Clemente, Prof S Marshall
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA is expanding its research into Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI). One area of interest is Structured Imaging using, for example, Ladar (Laser Detecting and Ranging) to map a scene in real-time.
  Quantification of global impacts of static fishing gear using systematic review and meta-analysis
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof M Kaiser
Application Deadline: 25 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of static (passive) fishing gears is widespread around the globe. While static gear are considered more selective and less disturbing to marine environments than fishing gear such as bottom trawls, they are associated with their own unique environmental impacts.
  Understanding the consequences of scallop dredging in relation to seabed habitat types, conservation features and other industry sectors
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Prof M Kaiser, Dr M Bell
Application Deadline: 25 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will look at both broad scale and regional issues associated with scallop dredge fisheries in the UK.
  The effect of cyclic subsurface hydrogen storage on the mechanical and transport properties of reservoir rocks
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr S den Hartog, Dr A Busch
Application Deadline: 4 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen storage is a promising technology to account for fluctuations, e.g. seasonal, in the global energy demand. However, little is known about the response of the reservoir rocks to the related fluctuations in pore fluid pressure and chemistry.
  Modelling the effects on tumour phenotype and mutational landscape of common genetic variance linked with colorectal cancer susceptibility
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Prof M Dunlop, Dr R Jackstadt
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD studentship funded by CRUK and is available to start in November 2019 at the MRC Human Genetics Unit, which is part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.

  3D printing of micro-scale graded shape memory components for in-vivo actuated medical devices
  Prof D P Hand
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
