  Design optimisation in tall buildings
  Research Group: Institute for Sustainable Building Design
  Dr M Gormley
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

dramatically changing the landscape of global cities. The creation of these complex vertical communities poses major operational challenges for the systems relied upon for occupant safety and the responsible management of water resources.
  Network integration for tall buildings
  Research Group: Institute for Sustainable Building Design
  Dr M Gormley
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of high-rise buildings is now at an unprecedented rate, with their number and scale rapidly and dramatically changing the landscape of global cities.
  Compartment fire-fighting and fire dynamics - Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship
  Dr R Carvel, Dr R Hadden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fire Service Research and Training Trust Scholarship. Fire adapts to its environment. When a fire becomes established in a compartment within a building or structure, the fire behaviour depends upon the nature of the fuel, the airflow dynamics in the space and the heat exchange between the fire and its environment.
  Multiscale modelling of shale gas flows
  Dr M Borg, Dr L Gibelli
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Edinburgh is seeking an excellent student to award a prestigious PhD scholarship to investigate the behaviour of methane gas inside porous rock media.
  Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) in Construction
  Dr F Bosche, Dr S Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern visualisation technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR) / Mixed Reality (MR), along with Building Information Modelling (BIM), AI and Robotics are collectively revolutionising the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry.
  Water treatment with membranes in Scotland: what affects their performance, and how to improve their lifespan?
  Dr A Semião, Dr S Romero-Vargas Castrillon, Dr M Graham
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mankind cannot survive without potable water. Despite this, our potable water resources are becoming more polluted due to human activity (e.g., mining, industry and agriculture), rendering them unfit for consumption.
  New numerical integration approaches for finite element simulations
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Numerical integration of area and volume integrals (also known as cubature) is a fundamental, but often overlooked, component of many computational techniques in continuum mechanics.
  Digital Education in STEM: automated evaluation of students interacting with remote laboratories
  Prof T Drysdale
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Remote laboratories comprise experimental apparatus that can be observed and controlled in real time, from a remote location. When used in undergraduate education, remote laboratories allow more active learning to be included in a course than would otherwise be possible.
  Variable Stiffness Actuation for Bioinspired Underwater Vehicle Design
  Dr F Giorgio-Serchi, Dr A Stokes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Background of the Project. Fish and other aquatic organisms propel themselves by performing various types of flapping foil routines.
  EPSRC InDustrial CDT for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE)
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

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.
  Finite element (FE) modelling of the additive manufacture (3D printing) of metals
  Prof A J Moore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded PhD studentship starting in September 2019. It is suitable for well-qualified students who have (or expect to obtain) a first class degree in engineering, physics or other relevant subject.
  Industrial CASE PhD Studentship – Process fundamentals for the additive manufacture (3D printing) of metals
  Prof A J Moore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded EPSRC industrial CASE PhD studentship starting in September 2019. It is suitable for well-qualified students who have (or expect to obtain) a first class degree in engineering, physics or other relevant subject.
  Energy transfer processes at gas/wall interfaces under extreme conditions
  Dr B Peterson
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This funded PhD studentship involves the on-going development of a numerical code to model spectra and time-dependent signals obtained using a hybrid femto-second/pico-second (fs/ps) rotational coherent anti-Stokes Raman Spectroscopy (R-CARS) near gas/wall interfaces.
