  Electro-catalysis over 2D materials
  Dr R Arrigo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Supervisor. Dr Rosa Arrigo, Lecturer in Inorganic Chemistry, University of Salford and Honorary Research Scientist, Diamond Light Source.
  PhD in Understanding the interaction of galling and oxidation in hard facing materials.
  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems CDT
  Dr F Scenini, Prof M Preuss
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hard facing materials are widely used in valves for industrial applications where wear and galling resistance is a key requirement.
  Enabling synthesis of fine chemicals through heterogenized catalysis
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Multi-Scale Modelling of Composite Materials
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Dr P Carbone
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description A PhD position at the University of Manchester working on “Multiscale Modelling of Polymer Composites” is available starting from September 2020 in the group of Dr Paola Carbone.
  Assessing the impact of long-term SO2 exposure on aviation
  Research Group: Volcanology
  Prof M Burton, Dr C Hayer, Dr S Loughlin, Dr R Clarkson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air travel is increasing globally, especially within regions surrounding the Pacific Ocean. The high density of volcanoes within that region means that the interaction between volcanic plumes and aircraft is expected to rise in the future.
  Global Volcanic SO2 Flux and Ground Deformation, using Sentinel mission data
  Research Group: Volcanology
  Prof M Burton, Dr C Hayer, Prof A Hooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Satellite remote sensing allows for continuous monitoring of hazardous and geographically distant volcanoes. Two key methods involve monitoring gas emission, using spectrometers, and measuring ground deformation, using InSAR (Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar).
  Thermal Barrier Coatings for Next-Generation Aircraft Engines
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Dr Y Chen, Prof P Xiao
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD candidate to join the coating group at Department of Materials in University of Manchester to study advanced thermal barrier coatings for next-generation aircraft engines.
  Mapping the radiation tolerance and local mechanics of nuclear Reactor Pressure Vessel steels
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr E Jimenez-Melero, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of the project is to evaluate the impact of the local microstructure on the radiation damage and mechanical performance of neutron-irradiated Reactor Pressure Vessels (RPV) steels at relevant reactor conditions and in the bulk microstructure, with sufficient spatial resolution and chemical sensitivity to identify local changes in chemistry, phases, microstructure and plasticity/hardening.
  (iCASE Award) Advanced method development and materials characterisation
  Prof P Xiao
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A partnership between Dyson, National Physical Laboratory and the University of Manchester is offering a materials focused PhD studentship funded by EPSRC and Dyson Ltd.
  Through Process Modelling for Sustainable Aluminium
  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems CDT
  Prof J Robson, Dr J Fonseca
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With industrial partner – Novelis, Switzerland. The collaborative industry partner for this project, Novelis, is a world leader in the manufacture of technically demanding rolled aluminium products and in aluminium recycling.
  Double Exchange Spin Dynamics within Valence Delocalised Molecular Magnets
  Dr M Baker
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applicants are invited to pursue a fully funded PhD studentship affiliated with the University of Manchester and hosted at international neutron research centre, Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), France.
  Hydrogen Transport and Trapping Mechanisms Controlling Embrittlement of Nickel Alloys in Low Carbon Energy Systems
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many current and next generation energy systems are reliant on the production, transportation, storage and use of gaseous hydrogen, often at high pressure.
  Synthetic engineering of nanoporous graphene and 2D-polymer sheets
  Dr A Keerthi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One atom-thick sheets of graphene and other 2D materials have attracted tremendous interest as membranes for molecular separation and sieving.
  Spin Waves Dynamics for Spintronic Computational Devices
  Prof T Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spin waves (magnons) are fundamental excitations found in magnetically ordered materials. Recently spin wave phenomena have been proposed as a new paradigm for dedicated computational tasks due to the inherently low energy of this type of excitation.
  Improving sensitivity and specificity to detect epileptogenic foci by coregistered PET and MR
  Prof K Herholz, Dr R Hinz, Dr S Muthu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Epilepsy is a frequent disorder that can be caused by focal abnormalities in the brain, which may be treatable by surgical resection.
