  Meltwater Ice-Sheet interactions and the changing climate of Greenland
  Dr A Leeson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

At present, future GrIS changes (e.g. estimates of sea level contribution which feature in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change - IPCC - assessment reports) are predicted using ice sheet models which do not fully account for the feedback processes outlined above.
  Fully-funded PhD Studentship in Linear Particle Accelerators for X-ray Cargo Screening and Radiotherapy
  Dr G Burt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The need to control borders has led to a rapid growth in the use of X-ray cargo imaging at ports, airports and rail depots. Many projects inspired by high energy physics (HEP) have led to rapid developments in detector technology.
  iPotato: Using smart technologies to spot internal defects in potato
  Dr M McAinsh
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Damaged crops cost the UK potato industry over £200 per hectare. Although disease contributes to crop losses, internal tuber defects that are undetectable from the outside (e.g.
  Full-funded PhD Studentship in Design of 3D printed alloys for medical implants
  Prof P Rivera, Dr W Wen
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A full PhD studentship on alloy design for 3D printed medical devices is offered. The project is led by Dr Wei Wen (Advisor) and Professor Pedro Rivera (Principal Supervisor) at the Department of Engineering, Lancaster University, in collaboration with Carpenter Technology.
  Sun drenched or sun starved: Evaluating climate and ecosystem impacts of solar energy development
  Dr A Armstrong
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rationale. Decarbonisation of energy supplies to mitigate climate change is triggering notable land take across the world. Land-use change is the greatest driver of decline in nature and therefore, such decisions risk trading global-scale climate change for local-scale ecosystem degradation.
  Atomically precise quantum molecular materials
  Dr S Jarvis, Prof C Lambert
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this experimental project is to develop new materials for use in sub-molecular scale electronics and as surface templates.
  Heavy quarkonium physics with ATLAS
  Prof V Kartvelishvili
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A heavy quark-antiquark bound state has been an object of experimental and theoretical investigations over more than 40 years.
  Quantum effects in high-intensity laser-driven plasma and novel searches for dark matter
  Dr D Burton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The new generation of high-intensity laser facilities is expected to provide a new avenue for probing quantum electrodynamics in parameters ranges that are currently inaccessible to high-energy colliders.
  ESRC CASE PhD Studentship: Understanding how people living with bipolar disorder talk about risk on social media
  Prof S Jones, Prof F Lobban, Dr P Rayson, Dr J Palmier-Claus
Application Deadline: 18 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individuals living with bipolar disorder are likely to engage in behaviours which can be risky for themselves or others. This includes increased prevalence of suicide and self‐harm, excessive spending, alcohol or drug use and risky sexual behaviour.
  Measuring Neutrino Oscillations with the T2K Experiment
  Dr H O'Keeffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

T2K is one of the leading neutrino oscillations experiments and located in Japan. A 500 kW proton beam from J-PARC at the east coast of Japan generates an intense beam of muon (anti-)neutrinos that travel almost 300 km to the Super-Kamiokande detector in the west of Japan.
