  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat) (NSIRC 179)
  Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  Development of novel coatings for the protection of high strength steels (NSIRC 217)
  Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Due to its toxicity and carcinogenic effects, cadmium (Cd) has been a “substance of very high concern” to the EU. The aerospace and defence sector specifies cadmium on many safety-critical high strength steel (HSS) components and it is likely that this will continue for a few more years.
  Development of high performance coatings for geothermal drilling applications (NSIRC 220)
  Dr M Riley, Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.
  Photocatalytic and antimicrobial properties of magnetron-sputtered bismuth oxide and its potential for water treatment application
  Dr M Ratova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photocatalysis is known as a promising and environmentally sustainable method of water purification. Photocatalytic water treatment is a cheap, yet efficient process as it is initiated simply by light irradiation.
  Novel Nanohybrid Coatings for Controlling the Degradation Rate of Bioresorbable Medical Devices
  Dr D Sun, Dr F Buchanan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioresorbable implants offer significant advantages over permanent implants for both cardiovascular and orthopaedic applications and offer the potential for restoration of normal tissue function.
  Fully-funded PhD Studentship in A novel coating technology based upon polyatomic ions from plasma.
  Dr T Douglas
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We wish to recruit a full-time Research Associate for 3 years, starting in October 2019. You will work with Dr Timothy E.L.
  MECH ENG-NCATS-600: Modelling of cobalt hard facing in sliding wear applications
  Research Group: nCATS
  Prof R J K Wood
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cobalt-based hard facings are used extensively within the nuclear industry for sliding wear resistant applications, such as where there is a risk of galling.
  Graphene mediated erosion resistant protection for wind turbine blades (Advert Ref: RDFC19/EE/MCE/ELMARAKBI)
  Prof A Elmarakbi
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In collaboration with Applied Graphene Materials in the UK, the Northumbria University is looking for a PhD candidate to develop and design new graphene related materials with high erosion resistance for wind turbine blade.
  Mechanics of Advanced Materials: the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions - Ref: VS2UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
  Application of Advanced Materials to Future Internal Combustion Engines
  Prof S Akehurst
Application Deadline: 12 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materion Corporation is a Global Leader in Advanced Materials and provider of performance alloys, precision coatings and other advanced materials, including Metal Matrix composites, Beryllium based products and ceramics.
