Next generation components for quantum communications

The . Single‑Photon Group.  at . Heriot‑Watt University.  offer a four year fully funded PhD position examining aspects of quantum communications, including quantum amplifiers and quantum random number generators. Read more

Elucidating the Environmental Impact of Nanoplastics (NP) through a Mechanistic Understanding of NP-induced Cell Membrane Damage

Plastic pollution is one of the main environmental problems of our time. Due to mismanagement or inadequate recycling practices, up to 300 million tons of plastic end up annually in landfills or are discharged into ecosystems, posing potential threats to aquatic and terrestrial life. Read more

Modelling of phase change in dense particle assemblies

This project aims to deliver a new modeling approach to efficiently simulate the powder flow and phase change (solid-liquid-solid) in dense packings of powder consisting of tens of millions of individual grains with application to manufacturing processes. Read more

Non-contact handling of small particles

In this multi-disciplinary project, the successful candidate will concentrate on non-contact handling of fine powders. We are interested in stabilisation and uniform bulk delivery of micron-sized particles with application to advanced manufacturing processes. Read more

Remote Destruction & Sterilization of the Coronavirus by RF/Microwave Wireless Power Transmission

The proposed PhD research plan is to develop further a new methodology that can help combat the COVID-19 pandemic by remote microwave sterilization of surfaces and air particles using antenna radiation and wireless power transmission. Read more

Finite element analysis on the evolving surfaces

A PhD project is available in the group of Andrew Goryachev to develop and/or adapt existing finite element methods for solution of the free boundary problem involving the equations of continuous mechanics on the evolving 3D surface. Read more

Waves, flares, oscillations – complex mechano-biochemical dynamics on the surface of vertebrate cells

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Looking to join a successful international project on the nexus of cutting edge biophysical modeling and biological experiment?. A PhD project is available to study complex nonlinear dynamics on the cell surface of large vertebrate cells, oocytes and embryos. Read more

Patterning biological cells by directed molecular transport

Are you interested in joining research on the interface of cutting edge biophysical modeling and biological experiment?. A PhD project is available to model the role of directed molecular transport, powered by molecular motors moving along the microtubule cytoskeleton, in spatial organization of biological cells. Read more

Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains

Summary. This project will develop an "instrumented grain" for tracking granular flows, allowing lab-based experimental modelling (and eventually field-based monitoring) of geohazards such as landslides. Read more
