  A crystal engineering approach for novel Pickering formulations with controlled release properties
  Dr E Simone, Prof B Murray
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims at developing novel sustainable, biocompatible multiphase formulations (e.g., emulsions, foams) for the controlled release of active ingredients, applying a unique crystal engineering approach.
  Adapting Road Infrastructure for Autonomous Vehicles
  Dr Y Huang, Prof O Carsten, Dr J Wang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autonomous vehicles are emerging as a solution to human driver limitations, such as imprecise control of speed and road position.
  Co-benefits of a Low Carbon Economy: Improved Air Quality and Reduced Global Warming
  Dr JB McQuaid, Prof D Marsh
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to the World Health Organization, it is estimated that air pollution kills approximately 7 million people worldwide, and 90% of the population breath air with high levels of pollutants.
  Combining machine learning and decision science to model transport and energy choices using emerging data sources
  Dr C Choudhury, Prof S Hess
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Machine learning and choice modelling techniques have been developed in parallel as tools for modelling human decisions.
  Effect of sediment and groundwater flow heterogeneity on accurately modelling radionuclide transport at UK nuclear sites
  Dr I Burke
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority oversees the removal of buildings and radioactive wastes present at UK nuclear sites.
  Exploring the Biophysical Constraints and the Socio-Economic Implications of a Global Transition to Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr P Brockway, Prof P Taylor, Dr L Brand Correa
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Concerns have been raised that declining energy return on energy investment (EROI) from fossil fuels, and low levels of EROI for alternative energy sources, could constrain the ability of national economies to continue to deliver economic growth and improvements in social wellbeing while undertaking a low-carbon transition.
  Ice and Light: Improving our ability to measure the environment with computational electromagnetic modellingSupervisor
  Dr R Neely, Dr PD Rosenberg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fundamental understanding of how ice crystals scatter light is critical for understanding the natural world. As this understanding is based on computational electromagnetic modelling, it is rooted in physical and mathematical sciences.
  Ice speed & Artificial Intelligence (AI): Using satellite data and advanced computer techniques to detect ice sheet change
  Dr A Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers an exciting opportunity to work at the interface of climate and space science, making an important contribution to international efforts to study the effects and impact of climate change.
  Incorporation of contaminant metals into waste derived nanoparticles
  Dr I Burke, Dr A P Brown
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction and rationale. The production and refinement of metals ores produces a multitude of heterogeneous wastes (e.g. during steel manufacturing, aluminium extraction and chromium ore processing).
  Iron Snow in Planetary Cores
  Dr C Davies, Dr A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Planetary magnetic fields exhibit remarkable variability in both strength and structure. These fields are generated in metallic cores and thus provide a unique probe into the dynamics and evolution of planetary interiors.
  Landslide nowcasting using advanced data analytics
  Dr A Abellan, Dr B Murphy, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fast proliferation of new satellite, aerial and terrestrial remote sensing techniques has provided new technological and scientific opportunities to investigate geohazards during the last decade.
  Machine learning to detect earthquakes in energy extraction and storage
  Dr A Nowacki, Dr S de Ridder
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, you will study microearthquakes caused by energy production with machine learning to understand why and how they occur.
  Managing complexity and uncertainty in the transition to net-zero energy systems
  Dr C Bale, Dr K Roelich
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In June 2019, the UK committed to a legally-binding target to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This provides a hugely challenging, yet necessary goal to radically and rapidly decarbonise the UK’s energy systems.
  Modelling behaviours for future policy analysis: Integrating choice modelling and microsimulation
  Dr N Lomax, Prof S Hess, Dr D Birks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Creating simulations of future outcomes on the basis of model assumptions is essential for resource planning and policy formation across a wide range of disciplines.
  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.
