  Durability in concrete: understanding the influence of capillary pressures for controlling shrinkage and cracking in early age concrete (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/MCE/MENDES)
  Dr J Mendes
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The build-up of capillary pressures in the pore space in early age concrete can be responsible for the formation of cracks throughout a concrete element that can be ultimately responsible for the failure of a structure.
  Controlling Droplet Impact and Penetration
  Dr JRCP Castrejón-Pita
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project we aim to expand our understanding of the physics of liquid droplet impact on to structured surfaces (including fabrics).
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  (BBSRC DTP) Flying underwater: multidisciplinary approaches to understanding the swimming dynamics of penguins
  Dr B Parslew, Dr K Smith, Prof W Sellers
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Penguins are highly adapted for both efficient cruising and rapid manoeuvring during underwater locomotion. From a biomechanical perspective some progress has been made into understanding the fluid dynamics surrounding their morphology, including the potential role of bubbles in reducing drag.
  Droplet Adhesion on Liquid-Repellent Surfaces
  Dr N Gao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student position funded at UK/EU rate is available to work on droplet wetting and adhesion behaviours in the group of Dr Nan Gao within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Birmingham.
  Suppression of coffee-ring effect for printing pharmaceuticals (ASKOUNISAU20SCIEC)
  Dr A Askounis, Dr S Qi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The coffee-ring effect (CRE) is ubiquitous in our lives from the drying of a spilled coffee drop (hence the name) to the drying of rain drops on our windows.
  PhD inTurbulent Flow Induced Vibration
  Dr A Krynkin
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is the opportunity for a PhD research student to join a cross-disciplinary project funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) which is based in Sheffield and will be carried out in collaboration with University College London (Prof.
  Bioinspired sensing: distributed sensory surface
  Dr T Assaf
Application Deadline: 25 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Informal enquiries. Dr Tareq Assaf ([email protected]). Robotic perception is crucial for robotic systems to advance and perform more and more complex tasks autonomously or semi-autonomously.
  Simulation Modelling of Distortion and Shrinkage in Stereolithography 3D Printing.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  NSIRC232 Use of Microwave (MW) frequencies for NDT of non-metallic pipes.
  Mr G Asfis, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Microwaves (MW) are part of the electromagnetic spectrum with wave lengths in the centimeter range and frequencies from 0.3 to 300 GHz.
  A combined framework of machine learning and full waveform inversion for electromagnetic sensing of infrastructure (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/WARREN)
  Dr C Warren, Prof J Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electromagnetic sensing systems, such as Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), are critical tools to allow us to evaluate the condition of surface and sub-surface infrastructure.
  Adhesion of powders to metal surfaces during compaction
  Dr C Sinka
Application Deadline: 27 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adhesion of powders to the surfaces of tooling used for compaction of pharmaceuticals, detergents, food, catalysts, ceramics, etc.
  Experiments of rain droplet penetration of porous media using laser diagnostics
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Prof T. Roose
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Improving the Performance of Flexible Packaging Adhesives
  Mrs N Hartley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in collaboration with Huntsman Polyurethanes based in Everberg Belgium. Polyurethanes are used in many technological applications ranging from adhesives for a variety of products to foams for furniture and sandwich panels.
  Various treatments of Crumb Tyre rubber to improve concrete properties
  Prof E Ganjian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main aim of this project is to study the effectiveness of surface pre-treatment by Ultraviolet (UV) light and Ultrasonic treatment as a replacement for the natural aggregate in concrete mixtures on the rubberised concrete properties.
