Developing a Novel High Frequency Resonator Rheometer

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The retrieval of nuclear waste from legacy facilities and its transfer to long-term storage is a top priority for the UK nuclear industry. Read more

Nanoparticle-based therapeutics to combat multidrug resistance and biofilms in chronic wound infections

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Read more

Dynamic Motion Generation of Multi-link Robots for Manufacturing

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
We are looking for an outstanding candidate to join the cutting-edge robotics research carried on at the Real Robotic Lab (. www.realrobotics.co.uk). Read more

Stability Control of Polyaromatic Compounds

Polyaromatic compounds find a range of uses in various industries including agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, pigments and fuels. Their behavior in fluids is strongly influenced by the physicochemical properties which are typically defined by the carbon number and double bond equivalent. Read more

CDT (GREEN) Understanding the effects of natural SCMs in cementitious grouts designed for the safe disposal of nuclear wastes

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
Nuclear waste cementation is one of the UK strategies for the safe disposal of intermediate and low-level nuclear waste. These processes rely on the availability of Portland cement, along with cement replacements referred to as supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) (e.g. Read more

A coordinated approach for power system security to support smart grid transition

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The power and energy system is facing landscape change in order to meet the net-zero target by 2050. The convergence of the information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) in power and energy systems brings numerous advantages including improved efficiency and reliability. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Water and Waste Infrastructure Systems Engineered for Resilience (Water-WISER)

A Water-WISER PhD offers a unique opportunity to contribute to the generation of new knowledge to improve water, waste & sanitation infrastructure and services for the poorest and most marginalised members of our global community. Read more

Bubble growth and gaseous release dynamics within viscoelastic nuclear wastes

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
We are looking for an enthusiastic graduate with 1st class honours or 2:1 in an Engineering or related discipline, for a 4 year funded joint PhD, as part of the Doctoral Training Centre in Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear (GREEN CDT). Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize. Read more

Domain-aware deep learning models for fast and accurate biomechanical simulation

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Background. Physics-informed neural networks (PINNs) provide a powerful means of incorporating domain knowledge into the training of deep learning models, so as to improve their accuracy and reliability in simulating complex real systems. Read more

Stem Cells: Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases

Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide. Read more

Cancer: Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC). Read more

Terahertz quantum cascade lasers

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The terahertz frequency range sits between the microwave and mid-infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, but has long resisted exploitation owing… Read more
