  Numerical and experimental investigations of compressive behaviour of FRP-confined waste-containing concrete columns
  Dr G Gong, Dr J Xia, Dr L Di Sarno
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prosperous construction industry causes enormous carbon-dioxide emission and demolished building wastes which have significant negative environmental impacts.
  The responses of rare anadromous fish to river reconnection: using fish movement behaviour to measure population recovery
  Dr J Bolland
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Habitat fragmentation is a major source of biodiversity loss in freshwaters, with rivers around the world fragmented by weirs and dams that create impoundments.
  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.
  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.
  Investigation of Tectonic Effects on Pipeline Stabilty
  Dr S Ullah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pipelines make an important group of structures called lifelines, as they support conducting water, oil and gas essential for life.
  Enabling Effective Transdisciplinary Working with the Automotive Sector
  Prof LBN Newnes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past few decades transdisciplinarity (TD) has been the subject of increased discourse in the context of large, complex, ill-defined, ‘wicked’ problems.
  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.
  Integrated approach to assess tree stability in storms and risk assessment (SRPe-Industry Doctorate Programme)
  Dr M Ciantia
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

More frequent intense storm events, associated with climate change, increase the likelihood of tree collapse adjacent to transport corridors that lead to costly disruption of road and rail journeys.
  Modelling and predicting flotation froth stability
  Dr P Brito-Parada, Prof S Neethling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The performance of flotation cells is highly dependent on the behaviour of the froth phase. The phenomena taking place in the froth not only control the water that reports to the concentrate, and thus the entrainment of gangue material, but also have a significant impact on the overall recovery.
  Advanced CFD methods for porous media flows (JS2UF2019)
  Dr J Szmelter, Dr A Clarke
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship to work on the development of modelling techniques, based on existing novel high resolution, massively parallel schemes with the immersed boundaries approach employed for simulation of flows in porous media.
  NSIRC243 Scaling modelling for annulus environments.
  Miss M Mitzithra, Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

NSIRC243. PhD Studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd) - Scaling Modelling for annulus environments. Institution. National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC).
  ONE Planet DTP - Antarchitecture: constraining East Antarctic Ice Sheet dynamics with radar-derived englacial stratigraphy and structure (OP202028)
  Dr N Ross
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Antarctic ice sheet contains a significant potential contribution to future global sea level rise. Satellite-observations of ice sheet change, numerical modelling and geological evidence demonstrates that several parts of the ice sheet could undergo unstable collapse, unlocking this sea level potential.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing novel geophysical tools to investigate urban plant-water processes.
  Dr R Stirling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD aims to improve our understanding of how street vegetation influence soil-water capacity in the built environment through the use of geophysical tomography.
  ONE Planet DTP - Developing probabilistic precipitation datasets for high mountain regions in a changing climate (OP20298)
  Dr E Lewis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precipitation data is fundamental to understanding hydrological processes, yet precipitation patterns and variability in mountain regions are poorly understood.
