  Unsteady aerodynamics of micro drones for Offshore Wind Farm Monitoring
  Dr IM Viola, Dr F Giorgio-Serchi
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

4-year PhD with Integrated Studies. Aim of the project. The aim of the project is to investigate, through bio-inspired fundamental research, a mechanism to exploit wind gusts to keep small flyers afloat.
  Data-mining the Built Environment SEBE0032
  Dr BD D'amico, Dr FP Pomponi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Given the current forecasts in global population to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 [1], a huge increase in construction activities is expected to follow on the same trend.
  Vibrational Performance of timber floor – an Investigation of influence of construction parameters SEBE0026
  Dr A Khokhar, Dr R Hairstans
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditional timber floor systems are usually composed of a series of parallel timber joists (eg. solid and engineered I-joist or Laminated-Veneer-Lumber) which support wood-based sheathing.
  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: 31 May 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.
  Hydrodynamics of Particle-Laden Flows: aerosols
  Dr S K Dadzie, Dr A Ozel, Professor R Ocone
Application Deadline: 30 April 2021

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air quality control relies on the simulation of aerosol dynamics. This research is to develop new theoretical model and simulation tools for these particle-laden flows.
  Process Modelling and Optimisation of Biomolecular Separations for Advanced Pharmaceutical Manufacturing
  Dr D Gerogiorgis, Dr M Luberti
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rapid design and deployment of efficient biopharmaceutical production lines in light of exogenous uncertainty worldwide is a pressing societal need, as global health and safety risks loom, new pathogens appear and aggressive infectious diseases induce a demand of vaccines and reliable therapeutics in a matter of months (or even weeks) as opposed to years.
  Biopharmaceutical process modelling and optimisation for advanced manufacturing of critical biotherapeutics
  Dr D Gerogiorgis, Dr M Luberti
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ever-increasing quest for rapidly designing and deploying efficient biopharmaceutical production lines worldwide is timely more than ever, as mankind faces global health and safety risks, from ageing to epidemics and from well-understood ailments to new pathogens.
  Big Data analytics for plantwide fault detection and process intensification in the pharma industry
  Dr D Gerogiorgis, Dr N Polydorides
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This collaborative research project between the University of Edinburgh (UoE) and a major multinational pharmaceutical company will employ advanced data-driven modelling and statistical methods in order to gain new process knowledge from datastreams, identify and visualise suboptimal modes/regimes, and optimise the operation of key unit operations (e.g.
  EPSRC and NERC 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.
  A Digital Twin for technoeconomic modelling and optimisation of VOC abatement in the pharma industry
  Dr D Gerogiorgis, Dr N Polydorides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This collaborative research project between the University of Edinburgh (UoE) and a major multinational pharmaceutical company will employ high-fidelity numerical modelling to capture, visualise and optimise the design and operation of organic solvent removal processes towards the sustainable and environmentally benign production of medications.
  The synthesis of novel alkaline materials for carbon mineralisation to prevent climate change
  Assoc Prof P Renforth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type
