  Understanding the cracking behaviour of reinforced concrete elements subjected to the restraint of imposed strains (EPSRC DTP)
  Dr N Nikitas
Application Deadline: 18 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In design, the minimum required amount of secondary (horizontal) reinforcement in members such as retaining walls, bridge abutments and walls of reservoirs is often controlled by early thermal cracking, which results from the restraint of imposed thermal and shrinkage strains.
  ISIS Beamline Facility Development Studentship: Opto-Electronic Control of Magnetism
  Dr O Cespedes, Prof S Langridge
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project to be carried out in collaboration between the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, a world-leading centre for research at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) near Oxford, and the University of Leeds.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment
  Dr E Valleley, Dr L Coletta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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).
  CMOS-Based Nanocapacitor Arrays
  Dr P Actis, Prof S Lemay
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity is part of the SENTINEL programme (https://sentinel-itn.com/) and will be based at the University of Twente in the Netherlands.
  Multi-Objective Optimisation for Sustainable Steel Structures Employing Artificial Intelligence
  Dr KD Tsavdaridis
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will engage with Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods recently developed for structural engineering applications, as is proving to be an efficient alternative approach to classic modelling techniques, and attempt to reduce the percentage of uncertainty of the results as well as saving significant human time and effort spent in experiments.
  International PhD Academy: Medical Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our vision is to impact locally, nationally and globally on biomedical and clinical research with a primary emphasis on health outcomes.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
  Geopolymer reinforced concrete structural elements
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof A Ashour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geopolymers is an alkali-activated amorphous aluminosilicious cementitious material exhibiting the ideal properties of rock-forming minerals.
  Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Stay In Place (SIP) formwork for structural concrete elements
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof A Ashour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The concept of using FRP composites for structurally integrated stay-in-place (SIP) formwork for structural concrete elements maximizes the advantages of both FRP and concrete; not only can the high strength of FRP be utilized effectively, but also FRP profiles can serve as permanent formwork.
