  Constraining CO2 emission of cities with sensor networks
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Physics Boesch 2020. Reducing carbon emissions to prevent damaging climate change is one of the grand challenges of our time.
  The first supermassive black holes
  Dr J Aird, Prof J Osborne
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supermassive black holes, with masses up to billions of times the mass of the Sun, are found at the centres of most galaxies, including our own.
  Mechanics of Advanced Materials: the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions - Ref: VS2UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  What’s the Matter with Walruses?
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Walruses, the tusked and massive marine mammals, spend much of their time resting on polar sea ice, but when that ice recedes in the summer months, they must find shore.
  Microbial Micro-Engineers
  Dr M Mazza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms occupy every crevice within global ecosystems and impact all aspects of life. However, too little is understood about their movement within physical crannies, and how they can restructure these microspaces for their own benefit.
  Adding a New Layer to Biophysics
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, there has been an explosion in applying liquid crystal theory to biological systems. Dense suspensions of swimming microbes, cytoskeletal components, fibrous tissues and bacterial colonies all exhibit properties associated with nematic liquid crystals.
  Porosity tailored titanium scaffolds for bone engineering
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Replacing a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, long-lasting and economic manner is the main motivation of this study.
  Self-Assembly of Colloidal Structures in Living Liquid Crystals
  Dr T Shendruk, Prof A Archer
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. TS/MA/2020. Start date of studentship. 1st January 2020. Closing date of advert. 14th November 2019.
  Controlling the emergent dynamical phenomena in neural circuits engineered in vitro
  Dr N Janson, Dr A Balanov, Dr P Roach
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be dedicated to mathematical modelling of the collective dynamics in complex living neural networks engineered in vitro.
