  Development of Accident Tolerant Fuels for Light Water Reactors
  Dr A Evans
Application Deadline: 9 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will develop the physical vapour deposition (PVD) route to produce coatings with improved mechanical stability and high temperature oxidation resistance, suitable for use as accident tolerant fuel coatings in light water reactors.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  Computational Studies on Tip Clearance Influence Regarding Flow and Heat Transfer Characteristics of Modern Aero Turbines (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This study addresses the study of the flow and heat transfer at the tip clearance region in aero turbines. Fluid dynamics at this region tends to be extremely complex.
  A soft sensor for die melt temperature profile prediction of polymer extrusion (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymeric materials play a major role in production industry and hence advanced process monitoring is invaluable for improving the product quality and process efficiency.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In polymer extrusion, the behaviour of the flow of materials along the screw shows highly variable nature as it is gradually changing from solid to molten state.
  Chemical control of vibronic coupling for optical materials
  Dr N Chilton, Dr J Skelton
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vibronic coupling is the connection between molecular vibrations and the electronic states, and has a pervasive influence throughout chemistry, for instance in photosynthesis, catalysis, magnetism and even organic chemistry.
  Chemical control of vibronic coupling for magnetic materials (Experimental)
  Dr N Chilton, Prof E McInnes
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coupling of molecular vibrations to electronic states (vibronic coupling) is a fundamental process that affects the outcome of chemical reactions and physical processes, but it is remarkable how little we know about it.
  Up to 10 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 10 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics, commencing in October 2019.
  Printed graphene based sensors for real-time and wireless monitoring of nuclear waste storage containers
  Prof C Casiraghi, Dr M Gresil, Dr Z Hu
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life cycle management of radioactive materials packaging is of fundamental importance because it ensures the safety functions of the waste container during the entire life cycle, from storage to transportation and disposal.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
