  Bayesian Networks for Value of Information Analysis in Energy Projects
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr B Jafarizadeh
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The big bets of the oil and gas industry increasingly involve uncertainty. These decisions in exploration, development, and production of hydrocarbons, along with more recent challenges of CO2 storage and sequestration or hybrid energy solutions, are uncertain because of lack of information.
  Engineering a clinical microprobe platform for continuous analyte monitoring during labour
  Dr M Crichton, Prof F Denison, Dr P Hands
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every year in the UK, over 1,100 term babies die or are left severely disabled as a result of. incidents that occur around the time of birth.
  Co-design of medical technology to manage lipoedema symptoms
  Dr L Macintyre
Application Deadline: 21 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of 16 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO).
  Tomographic Laser Imaging of Gas Turbine Engine Exhaust
  Dr C Liu, Dr H McCann
Application Deadline: 17 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas turbine engines (GTEs) are meeting ever-increasingly stringent emission requirements on the concentrations of toxic compounds, minimising the adverse environmental effects of civil aviation activities.
  Characterising energy demand profiles for future low-carbon homes
  Research Group: Institute for Sustainable Building Design
  Dr D Jenkins, Prof E Owens
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is currently faced with extremely challenging targets for decarbonising our homes, with a particular emphasis on forms of low-carbon heating.
  Understanding fluid flow in fracture networks within the upper crust, experimental investigation, numerical modelling and environmental influence
  Dr C McDermott, Dr A Fraser Harris, Dr A Bond
Application Deadline: 10 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As we transition to a low carbon economy, alternative energy technologies need to be developed that either deliver alternative energy sources or facilitate other low carbon technologies.
  Laser-based manufacture of a micro-needle sensing platform for electrophysiology testing
  Prof D P Hand, Dr M Crichton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we seek to develop a multi-mode microneedle sensor that can measure electrical properties and physical tissue changes concurrently.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Answering Questions about Medical Images (Canon Medical Research Europe, Ltd)

  Prof D Reid, Dr F Deligianni, Dr J Dalton
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Visual Question Answering (VQA) [1] is the task of answering free-text questions about the content of images. For example, given an image of a room - ‘What colour is the chair standing in the corner?’ - answering this question requires joint understanding of vision, language, spatial reasoning, and common sense.

  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Prof M Sorel
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Integrated photonics is a major emerging technological field with the potential for massive impact on the biomedical, security, defence, transportation, telecoms and other sectors.
  PhD: Atmospheric monitoring for next generation cable free optical communication technologies (British Telecom)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type
