  A soft sensor for die melt temperature profile prediction of polymer extrusion
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage, Dr A Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymeric materials play a major role in production industry and hence advanced process monitoring is invaluable for improving the product quality and process efficiency.
  Automation of clothing pattern construction from body scan data
  Research Group: Textiles and Apparel
  Dr S Gill, Dr A Harwood, Dr S Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to harness new technologies to create pattern blocks for clothing that better reflect the individual’s size, shape and proportion.
  Bio-Inspired complex and adaptive materials and surfaces
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr A G Dumanli-Parry
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature produces hierarchical and complex nanostructures and patterns through the self-assembly of polymeric building blocks.
  Computational design and development of rotating heat pipes for gas turbine cooling
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas turbines are critical elements for power generation and transportation systems. They transform the chemical energy contained in the fuel by combustion, into mechanical energy.
  Correlative microscopy for studying graphene-based materials in biological environment
  Dr E Prestat, Dr C F Blanford, Dr C Bussy
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of nanomaterials for biomedical applications has the potential to provide new solutions to so-far unsolved clinical need.
  Fabrication of ceramic coatings for next generation aeroengines
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Prof P Xiao
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful candidate(s) will join large research team in School of Materials, University of Manchester to develop thermal and environmental barrier coatings for next generation aeroengines.
  High-performance smart ceramic coatings on light alloys
  Dr B Mingo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vision set out by the UK government is that by the year 2050 almost every car and van should be Ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV).
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  Metal dithiocarbamates and xanthates as potential masked labile precursors to metal oxides
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr D Lewis
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traditionally, a range of high temperature powder processing techniques was used for the synthesis of metal oxide powders – the so-called shake and bake method.
  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.
