  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-lifting air bearings
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funding availability. Scholarships are available for students worldwide, and will be awarded on first come first served basis. Self-funded applications are welcome.
  Self-powered cardiac implantable devices enabled by energy harvesting from heart motions (HFUF2019)
  Dr H Fu, Prof S Korossis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nowadays, implantable medical devices are widely used in patient assistance, monitoring, and diagnosis. However, these devices are powered by batteries inside the implants that have limited discharging capability or via transcutaneous power leads connected to wearable batteries.
  Adaptive self-learning vision systems
  Dr P Kinnell, Dr N Lohse, Dr A Soltoggio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many computer vision systems make use of artificial neural networks to undertake complex image analysis tasks, such as locating objects in a clutter scene.
  Manufacturing 4.0: Design of Smart Manufacturing Systems
  Dr J Milisavljevic-Syed
Application Deadline: 1 November 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. Conventional manufacturing processes are designed for mass production at a low cost. In recent years, globalization of markets has imposed demands on enterprises to respond rapidly to technological advances and changing preferences of a large customer base.
  Simulation and optimisation of a spacecraft propulsion system based on a Field Reversed Configuration plasmoid using deep learning and machine learning algorithms
  Dr P Shaw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate an enabling technology for a more significant and complex system based on a High-Energy Density Electromechanical Thruster based on Stabilized Liner Compression of Plasma that could lead to manned exploration of the Solar system [1].
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Advanced design of fibre reinforced composites - using multiscale reliability analysis and optimisation
  Dr P Dunning, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to advance the design of components made from fibre reinforced composite materials, by combining techniques in multiscale analysis, structural reliability and design optimisation.
  Application of Nanotechnology in Drilling Engineering
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production from unconventional hydrocarbon resources, such as shale gas, shale oil, deepwater and arctic reservoirs requires advanced drilling and extraction technologies.
  Bio-inspired joints for metal-composite structures
  Prof M Kashtalyan, Prof I Guz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining dissimilar materials such metals and fibre-reinforced composites in structural components has potential to reduce weight and improve structural performance in many applications.
