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.
  Modelling environmentally assisted cracking in Ni-based superalloys
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr J Fonseca
Application Deadline: 15 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ni-based superalloys in aircraft engines are routinely subjected to temperatures in the range of 650-700oC during operating conditions.
  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.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

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.
  EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from qualified graduates for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the area of Advanced Biomedical Materials.
  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  CFD of coupled multiphysics in scraped surface heat exchangers
  Dr I Afgan, Dr R Prosser
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scraped surface heat exchangers (SSHE) are widely used in (for example) the food industry, where there is a requirement for heat exchange, crystallization, aeration and other continuous processes.
  Understanding structure-property relationships in non-Newtonian fluids
  Prof C Hardacre
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 and the UK’s neutron facility (ISIS) based in Oxfordshire.
