  Robotic Molecules: Self-repairing and Self-assembling Machine
  Dr S Miyashita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to develop a totally new approach for the realization of self-repairable and self-assemble machines. We literally aim at making "living LEGO".
  Self-Assembly of Colloidal Structures in Living Liquid Crystals
  Dr T Shendruk, Prof A Archer
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. TS/MA/2020. Start date of studentship. 1st January 2020. Closing date of advert. 14th November 2019.
  Responsive biomaterials with tunable self-healing properties
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The use of biomaterials to regrow or repair damaged biological tissue has the potential to revolutionise how we treat disease.
  Self-healing polymer composites with graphene and carbon nanotubes
  Dr A Abdelkader
Application Deadline: 8 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic waste is a critical global environmental and health issue. A good means of tackling plastic waste is to reduce polymeric material failures.
  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  (BBSRC DTP) Solubilising Insoluble Proteins using Self-Assembling Supramolecular Structures
  Dr I Riddell, Dr L Wong, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein insolubility is a common problem for researchers working with isolated proteins that, due to hydrophobic patches on their surface, misfold and/or aggregate outside of their natural environment.
  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.
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a self-funded project, match-finding option may be available for qualifying candidates. Please include a detailed CV with any enquiries.
  EPSRC Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (BCFN) is now recruiting for 2019 entry to our PhD programme.
  Three-Dimensional Active Liquid Crystals: Defects and Topology
  Dr GP Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Active matter is a class of materials in which the individual constituents continually consume energy to generate work or motion, maintaining the system in dynamic, self-organised, nonequilibrium states [1].
