  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.
  Penguin propulsion mechanics in underwater swimming
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  Integrated deep learning and model structure detection strategy for physical laws development and photobioreactor design
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Designing industrial scale reaction systems and unit operations takes a sophisticate procedure and involves a range of multiscale modelling and experimentation steps.
  The Influence of Combined Oxidation and Fatigue Conditions on the Endurance of Titanium Alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Prof P Prangnell, Dr J Fonseca
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

High performance titanium alloys are being increasingly used in airframes where elevated temperatures can be experienced in the engine pylons.
  Developing a sizing methodology for women’s sports compression garments
  Research Group: Textiles and Apparel
  Dr K Brubacher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will look to develop sizing systems suitable for sports compression garments. Sports compression garments (SCGs) are skin-tight, elastic garments that are designed to apply pressure to the underlying body with the aim to improve exercise performance and recovery.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  Foam Flow in Porous Media: From Fundamentals to Applications
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

During oil production from underground oil reservoirs, only a fraction of oil tends to be extracted during the primary recovery phase, prior to the oil reservoir becoming too depleted to push additional oil out naturally.
  Porous Media for a Green World
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable use of soil and water resources is crucial to preserve healthy terrestrial ecosystems and maintaining food security.
  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.
  Systems modelling for concentrated crystallizing systems
  Dr T Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to be conducted in the School of Chemical Engineering & Analytical Science in the University of Manchester.
