  Optically transparent armour reinforced with microbially-synthesized cellulose nanofibres with self-repair capability
  Dr K Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbially-synthesised cellulose nanofibres, more commonly known as bacterial cellulose (BC), is an ultra-pure form of cellulose nanofibers with mechanical performance exceeding that of single E-glass or Kevlar fibre.
  Peripheral Nerve Tissue Engineering using Natural Polymers
  Prof I Roy, Prof J Haycock
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peripheral nerve injuries through trauma, and sometimes surgery, result in over 300,000 cases each year in the EU. In contrast to the central nervous system, peripheral nerves have some ability to repair.
  Polymers capable of Self-Repair
  Prof W C Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A synthetic-focussed project, this will target the generation and materials assessment of novel polymers that are capable of either autonomous or stimuli-responsive repair in order to recover the mechanical characteristics of the pristine material.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  Magnetostrictive 4D printing for aircraft damage monitoring and repair
  Prof N Morley
Application Deadline: 21 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to use additive layer manufacturing to develop 4D magnetostrictive structures for use in structural health monitoring of carbon fibre composites.
  Development of Smart Memory Alloy with Enhanced Structural Performance under fire (Advert Reference: SF18-2/MCE/GONZALEZ SANCHEZ)
  Dr S Gonzalez Sanchez, Dr K Poologanathan, Dr B Nagaratnam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shape memory alloys (SMAs) are special materials with a substantial potential for various structural engineering applications. The novelty of such materials lies in their ability to undergo large deformations and return to their un-deformed shape through stress removal or heating (shape-memory effect).
  Sustainable multifunctional polymer foams (ref: SF18/APP/Perry)
  Prof J Perry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chitin is the second most abundant biopolymer after cellulose it being found in the exoskeletons of insects and other invertebrates as well as providing structural rigidity to fungi.
  Artificial Intelligence to accelerate Materials Discovery: Developing artificial intelligence computing tools to discover new nanostructured materials
  Prof K Choy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New advanced materials are required to fuel innovations in clean energy, transport, electronics, engineering and health care sectors.
  Intelligent biomaterials for the development of high-performance label free biosensors and medical devices
  Prof K Choy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New biomaterials are needed to enhance the performance of biosensors and medical devices.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Composites Science, Engineering and Manufacturing

Funding Type

PhD Type

University of Bristol, Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science Doctoral Training Centre (ACCIS DTC) Four-Year PhD Advanced Composites Programme University of Bristol Advanced Composites PhD Research.
