  Intelligent Human-Robot Collaboration for Smart Factory
  Dr Y Lu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in sensing, computational intelligence, and big data analytics have been rapidly transforming and revolutionizing the manufacturing industry towards robot-rich and digitally connected factories.
  Funded PhD position in variable autonomy Human-Robot systems in extreme environments
  Dr M Chiou, Prof R Stolkin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Robotics systems used in time- and safety-critical domains (e.g. disaster response, nuclear decommissioning) are often remotely teleoperated, with little or no autonomy used to assist the human operator.
  Virtual Human-Robot Collaboration: developing an immersive human-robot collaboration testing environment using virtual reality tools
  Prof A Tiwari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this research theme is to develop an immersive human-robot collaboration testing environment using virtual reality tools, such as HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and VR CAVEs.
  Digitisation of Skill-intensive Manufacturing Processes
  Prof A Tiwari
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The focus of this project is to develop and demonstrate, in a realistic factory environment, digitisation solutions that deliver a step increase in productivity of high-value manufacturing and assembly.
  Human-Robot Interaction (HRI) in Construction
  Dr F Bosche, Dr S Smith
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern visualisation technologies like Virtual Reality (VR) / Augmented Reality (AR) / Mixed Reality (MR), along with Building Information Modelling (BIM), AI and Robotics are collectively revolutionising the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry.
  Investigating the relationship between human responses and major safety incidents in the process industries
  Dr E Ventura-Medina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically safety events, including major safety incidents, can have far reach consequences in terms of losses for businesses and society as a whole.
  Porous Media for a Green World
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable use of soil and water resources is crucial to preserve healthy terrestrial ecosystems and maintaining food security.
  Design and control of magnetic soft robot for surgical applications
  Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This vacancy is created by a major European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to the STORM Lab, which aims to define a new generation of surgical tentacle-like robots that can be magnetically guided within the human body by magnetic fields.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Microneedle poration as a drug delivery technology to treat nail fungal infections: addressing an unmet medical need
  Dr B Delgado-Charro
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Toward Next generation of Brain Computer Interfaces
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A brain-computer interface (BCI) provides a direct communication pathway between a human brain and an external device. Using appropriate sensors and data processing algorithms, a BCI maps patterns of brain activity associated with a volitional thought onto signals suitable for communication and control.
