  Understanding the properties of van der Waals heterostructures from transmission electron microscopy imaging
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Prof A Geim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The possibility to create new ‘designer’ materials by stacking together atomically thin layers extracted from layered materials with different properties…
  Cleaner Fuels via Atomic Imaging and Elemental Engineering
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Prof C Hardacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis is a method to produce high performance fuels with a decreased environmental impact. For example, Fischer-Tropsch fuels can be generated from municipal waste and have 80% lower environmental impact compared to traditional fuel approaches.
  Development of microfluidic devices to support actinide analysis
  Dr C Sharrad, Dr B Treves Brown
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The primary objective of the project is to develop methods for the analysis of actinide materials using minimal sample amounts and generating the lowest volumes of radioactive wastes requiring costly treatment and disposal processes.
  Chemical Looping Technology integrated with dehydrogenation process
  Dr V Spallina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced energy and chemical plants require new reactors and processes designed to combine high efficiency, attractive economics and reduced pollutant emissions.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Numerical modelling and design of geothermal heat recovery from subsurface systems
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the geothermal energy technology, this is a common practice to drill a doublet (i.e. an injection and production well pair) system.
  Coupled flow-geomechanics for prediction of propagation and collapse of wormholes in matrix acidizing
  Dr M Babaei
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acidizing is an established technique to stimulate enhanced hydrocarbon recovery from carbonate reservoirs.
  Making the link between weld process and long term in-service performance: multi-scale modelling and characterisation for low alloy steel welds in advanced nuclear reactors
  Prof M C Smith, Dr J Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-value, low-volume, safety-critical metallic components in nuclear plants almost invariably contain welds. Welding is an aggressive process that causes microstructural changes in the weld and adjacent heat affected zone, develops residual stresses and structural distortion, and changes the material properties.
  Gas-solid processes for decarbonised steel industry
  Dr V Spallina, Prof A Azapagic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced energy and chemical plants require new reactors and processes designed to combine high efficiency, attractive economics and reduced pollutant emissions.
  Hydrogen and Ammonia production integrating high pressure chemical looping
  Dr V Spallina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced energy and chemical plants require new reactors and processes designed to combine high efficiency, attractive economics and reduced pollutant emissions.
  Modelling of primary water stress corrosion cracking (PWSCC) of nickel based alloys (NBAs) in nuclear (PWR) primary coolant
  Prof M C Smith, Dr A Jivkov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nickel based alloy (NBA) materials and their associated weld metals are of interest to new build and advanced nuclear reactors due to their superior structural performance when compared with traditional steel materials.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  Online electromagnetic sensing technique for welding inspection
  Prof A Peyton, Dr WY Yin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Welding is one of the most commonly practiced fabrication techniques within manufacturing today.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  Computational fluid dynamics modelling of sprays of liquids into gases and vapours
  Prof H Iacovides, Dr A Cioncolini
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project addresses the kinematic and thermal behaviour of sprays of liquids into gases, with a particular focus on the dynamics of the type of pressurisers used to control the operating pressure in pressurised water nuclear power stations.
