  Modelling middle actors in the building energy retrofit system
  Prof A Heppenstall, Dr A Owen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Transforming the UK’s existing buildings to a zero carbon building stock by 2050, in order to meet statutory targets, remains an enormous challenge and a major business opportunity.
  Mechanical Behaviour of solid state lithium ion batteries
  Dr D E J Armstrong
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ceramic lithium ion conductor Li7La3Zr2O12 (LLZO) has been shown to be promising electrolyte materials for solid state lithium ion batteries.
  NSIRC 175 PhD Studentship – Prediction of fatigue limit of additive manufactured materials
  Dr M Dore, Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In fatigue design, it is important to know the fatigue limit of the material to be used in order to avoid fatigue failure.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
  Mathematical modelling of poro-mechanics of soil
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Tiina Roose. Co-supervisor William Powrie. Project description. Soil is one of the most complex and important self-assembling organo-mineral composites in the world.
  Mathematical Modelling and Analysis of Sessile Droplets
  Prof S K Wilson, Dr A Wray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The behaviour of sessile droplets is an area of very active international research, with new publications appearing on an almost daily basis and entire conferences now dedicated to the topic.
  Bio-inspired joints for metal-composite structures
  Prof M Kashtalyan, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining dissimilar materials such metals and fibre-reinforced composites in structural components has potential to reduce weight and improve structural performance in many applications.
  Improving Throughput in a Wireless Mobile Network using Successive Interference Cancellation with Power Randomization
  Dr M Tunnicliffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Successive Interference Cancellation (SIC) allows simultaneous transmissions on a common physical channel to be detected simultaneously by receivers, given that the received power levels are sufficiently different both from each other and from the ambient noise.
  Hydrogen and Ammonia production integrating high pressure chemical looping
  Dr V Spallina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced energy and chemical plants require new reactors and processes designed to combine high efficiency, attractive economics and reduced pollutant emissions.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In polymer extrusion, the behaviour of the flow of materials along the screw shows highly variable nature as it is gradually changing from solid to molten state.
  Life cycle assessment of current and future passenger transport technologies in the UK
  Dr S Parsons
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the coming years, the electric powertrain is expected to replace fossil fuelled vehicles. From an environmental perspective, there are still many uncertainties when assessing the potential life cycle impacts of future powertrain technologies.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on mechanical testing of recyclable vitrimer composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vitrimers are a groundbreaking development in polymer chemistry. This new class of polymers is neither thermoset, nor thermoplastic, but inherits properties from both polymer classes.
  Conversion of waste plastics to fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Maximizing damping of wind energy structures through the use of locally resonating yarns embedded in 3D woven composites (Ref: ReNU/Szyniszewski)
  Dr S Szyniszewski
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU) is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
