  FoodBioSystems DTP - Food Processing with Solid State Microwave Technology for Higher Product Quality and Lower Carbon Footprint
  Prof S Tassou, Dr M Oruna-Concha, Dr V Stojceska, Dr J Rodriquez Garcia
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Microwaves are well-established as sources of dry heat and are very widely used in the home and some industrial applications in the food sector.
  Biorefining of seafood processing waste (EPS2020/46)
  Dr S R Euston
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste from the processing of fish or shellfish contains a range of valuable co-products (including proteins, oil, carotenoids, carbohydrates and minerals).
  Co-processing of biomass and fossil fuel as feedstock to the fluid catalytic cracking uni
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr Y John, Dr R Patel, Prof I Mujtaba
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The simulation model of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit and many other refinery processes maximise the yields of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, propylene and minimise the yields of CO2.
  Optimisation of Industrial Food Production using Ultraviolet Fluorescence
  Dr EB Woolley, Dr P Webb
Application Deadline: 2 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Food manufacturing is the largest and one of the most resource intensive sectors in the world. Within this industry, cleaning of food processing equipment is a critical operation to control safety, cross contamination of allergens and maintain food quality.
  High-Speed Millimetre Wave Wireless Communications
  Prof X Huang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing demand for high speed wireless communications systems means that new signal processing algorithms and hardware implementations are necessary to meet low cost and high performance requirements.
  Engineering laser beams for novel interaction with materials and enhanced application functionality
  Prof G Dearden, Dr S Edwardson
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate optical techniques for modulating and manipulating light from solid-state pulsed lasers operating in the nanosecond, picosecond and femtosecond regime, and applying these to explore novel mechanisms of interaction with engineering materials.
  Hedgerow and field margin monitoring technologies: value and acceptability for agri-environment payments (IAF2008)
  Dr R Gaulton, Dr G Jones
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Public money for public goods is a common mantra within government. Proposed new agri-environment schemes are expected to move from a model of prescriptive management options to ones based on outcomes, in terms of preservation of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
  Remaining useful life and lifetime extension of wind turbine drivetrains
  Dr J Carroll, Dr S Koukoura
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EngD in the new EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Wind and Marine Energy Systems and Structures at the University of Strathclyde collaborating with Natural Power.
  Aircraft Electrification
  Research Group: Energy Systems
  Dr J Marco, Dr A Barai
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT OVERVIEW. This fully funded PhD studentship represents a unique opportunity to undertake advanced characterisation, control system design and modelling research in close partnership with Vertical Aerospace (http://www.vertical-aerospace.com).
  QUADRAT DTP: New methods for the ’visualisation’ of dynamic and multi-dimensional data in Earth and environmental systems
  Dr C Bond, Prof J McKinley
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digitalisation and large, multi-dimensional, dynamic data are now the main stay of Earth and Environmental Science, but how we visualise, handle, analyse and make decisions from these datasets is still a significant challenge.
  Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Production of Chemicals and Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Aberdeen has been awarded over £1million in funding to establish a centre that will train a new generation of researchers to develop technologies that convert organic waste into sustainable materials.
  KESS2 Scholarship: High-resolution sub-seafloor characterisation to optimise zonal appraisal and front-end engineering for renewable energy projects.
  Dr K Van Landeghem
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We urgently need to accommodate a zero-emissions society using technology that is available today. We are in a climate crisis and we cannot wait for new technology to emerge.
  Estimation of Arsenic Contamination in Agricultural Soils by Combining the Reflectance Spectroscopy of Soils and Plants.
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Prof B Sen Gupta
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arsenic contamination in soil and water is of great concern in many parts of the world. In South and South-East Asia, millions of people are affected by high arsenic exposure due to consumption of arsenic-contaminated rice, which has led to an international health crisis.
  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.
  Funded PhD Studentship in Engineering: An acoustic analysis tool for detecting hydrogen gas in sealed pressurised storage packages and containers
  Dr P Holborn
Application Deadline: 8 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded PhD research opportunity exists to develop an acoustic analysis tool for detecting hydrogen gas in sealed pressurised storage packages and containers.
