  LED-driven photocatalytic oxidation technology for water purification
  Dr E Chatzisymeon
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This interdisciplinary project in collaboration with Scottish Water, our industrial partner, aims to provide a safe and reliable technology for the treatment of drinking water as well as for the effective treatment of natural organic matter and other organic substances.
  Cold-water coral reef growth and loss in a changing ocean
  Dr S Hennige, Prof M Roberts, Dr U Wolfram
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cold-water corals (CWC) are key habitat-forming organisms found throughout the 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 compared to neighbouring, less complex habitats.
  Experimental and numerical investigation of methods to dynamically influence the permeability of fractured rock in the near field environment using thermal stress and fluid pressure.
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD will form part of a larger industry sponsored project developing smart pumping technology capable of delivering controlled location specific fluid pulses to rock.
  Vulnerabilities’ and ‘Capabilities’ within the Context of Protracted Displacement Crises
  Dr K Sharapov, Dr T Guma
Application Deadline: 9 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Whilst the ’vulnerabilities’ of individuals forced to cross borders and of internally displaced persons have been often highlighted and documented over several decades, less is known about the ’capabilities’ of displaced people themselves to respond to contexts of exile/displacement.
  Assessing the impact of multiple environmental stressors on Atlantic Ocean deep-sea ecosystems
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the mid-20th century, pressure from fishing has increased along continental margins and offshore banks and seamounts worldwide, with many pelagic and benthic ecosystems having already been heavily impacted by trawling and substantial international concerns raised over the potential impacts of deep-water hydrocarbon exploration and production.
  Novel nanostructured materials for distinguishing molecules and ions with small size difference
  Dr Y Huang
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

All across the world, people are facing a wealth of new and challenging problems, particularly the energy and environmental issues.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  New EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems and Structures

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Strathclyde will train researchers to PhD level in wind and marine energy.
  Quantum-Enhanced Imaging in Extreme Environments
  Prof G Buller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Single-Photon and photon-pair correlated imaging has opened up a number of exciting possibilities for three-dimensional imaging in extreme environments such as imaging through obscurants (eg fog, smoke), and underwater.
  EPSRC InDustrial CDT for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE)

Funding Type

PhD Type

A jointly awarded Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, Exeter University and Strathclyde University, offering ten places per year funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
