  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.
  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.
  Modelling memristive artificial neurons
  Prof S Saveliev, Dr P Borisov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Does the brain operate as a computer? In short the answer is no, but why? We use logic when thinking and coming to a decision by linking events in a causal relationship.
  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.
  Addressing unmet clinical needs in the repair and rehabilitation of non-union fractures (SL4UF2019)
  Dr S Li, Dr D Fong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A non-union is a broken bone that fails to heal. These result from both civilian and military injuries and lead to pain, suffering and loss of dignity.
  Medical image-based computational modelling and an AI algorithm development for lung disease diagnosis (MKUF2019)
  Dr K Kim, Dr T Kim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Medical imaging is a clinically established tool to assess structural or (and) functional abnormalities in a respiratory system. It may provide valuable information beyond the human senses.
  Multi-scale modelling of bone fracture (SLUF2019)
  Dr S Li, Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone fracture affects millions of people’s life worldwide. In UK alone, there are approximately more than 850,000 new fractures each year, and the estimated annual cost for bone fracture related treatment reached more than £2 billion.
  Optimizing muscle mechanics for smart prosthetic (SL3UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  Performance aspects in the development of the smart prosthetic lower limb (SL2UF2019)
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Restoration of human functional activity has been a drive for many centuries dating back to early Egyptian and Greek civilizations.
  Self-powered cardiac implantable devices enabled by energy harvesting from heart motions (HFUF2019)
  Dr H Fu, Prof S Korossis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nowadays, implantable medical devices are widely used in patient assistance, monitoring, and diagnosis. However, these devices are powered by batteries inside the implants that have limited discharging capability or via transcutaneous power leads connected to wearable batteries.
