  Environmental fracture mechanics testing of dissimilar metal welds - NSIRC242 PhD Studentship
  Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Dissimilar metal welds (DMWs) are used across the energy sector from traditional fossil fuel industries, through to renewables, the emerging hydrogen economy, nuclear fission and even nuclear fusion.
  Development of Effective Corrosion Testing Approaches for Performance Evaluation of Organic Coatings
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr M Curioni, Prof X Zhou
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary project which aims to, for the first time, connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of protective coatings and nanocomposite materials.

  Dr S Heaven
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof Sonia Heaven. Co-supervisor Dr Yue Zhang. Project description. Industrial and environmental biotechnology is a rapidly developing field that covers both well-established sectors such as anaerobic digestion and wastewater treatment, and innovative processes needed to underpin the circular bioeconomy.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
