  Haptic Teleoperation for Space applications
  Dr A Tzemanaki
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a prestigious EPSRC iCASE studentship co-funded by Thales Alenia Space (Bristol Office). This is a PhD opportunity to join the dynamic and inter-disciplinary research communities of the Bristol Robotics Laboratory and the University of Bristol via the FARSCOPE CDT programme.
  Advanced multiscale modelling and simulations of nucleate boiling on special surfaces – EMBOSS project
  Dr P Valluri, Dr T Krueger
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Boiling is a common but fundamental phenomena required in modern manufacturing equipment. Typically, boiling begins with nucleation on a heated surface.
  Development of a PMMA- ZrO2 core shell composite for the next generation bone cement
  Research Group: nCATS
  Dr R B Cook
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr. Richard Cook. Co-supervisor Prof. Andrew Hector, Prof. Martin Browne. Project description. Applications are invited for a fully-funded industrially sponsored multidisciplinary PhD aiming to develop a new bone cement formulation for use in orthopaedic surgery.
  Biomass Combustion Ash in the Removal of Micro-pollutants from Water
  Dr S Soltani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK is committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80% compared to the 1990 emission levels by the year 2050. Negative emission technologies such as biomass combustion with carbon capture is vital to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets.
  Developing Squeeze-Film Levitation
  Prof M Atherton, Prof T Stolarski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Squeeze-film levitation (SFL) is a means of separation and non-contact movement of one surface over another, e.g. conveying and bearings.
  Design and Fabrication of an In-line Hemolysis Sensor For the Quality Control of Clinical Blood Samples (EPS2020/09)
  Dr M Kersaudy-Kerhoas
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, the candidate will develop an in-line hemolysis sensor for non-contact measurement into microfluidic cartridges.
  Nature Inspired Surgical Tools (EPS2020/44)
  Prof M Desmulliez
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The stings of insects provide a wealth of information on how to design and manufacture better cutting surgical tools. By close examination of specimen obtained from museums, lessons from the profiles of stings of insects will be applied towards the manufacture and tests of novel surgical blades.
  PhD Studentship in Tribology: the mechanisms by which soot causes problematic wear in heavy-duty diesel engine components
  Dr T Reddyhoff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a research studentship in the field of Tribology, leading to the award of a PhD degree. The studentship is for three and a half years starting spring 2020.
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  Design and development of paper/responsive polymer hybrid micro-device (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/XU)
  Dr B Xu, Dr Y Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Paper micro-device is a technology that is particularly well-suited for use in public health, diagnostics for resource-limited settings, veterinary medicine, testing of food and water quality, and environmental monitoring.
  Microscale characterisation of composite matrix materials: a state-of-the-art study
  Prof R Butler, Prof C R Bowen, Dr A J G Lunt
Application Deadline: 5 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Prof Richard Butler, Prof Chris Bowen & Dr Alexander Lunt. Project. Composite materials now make up over 50% of the structural components used in aerospace structures.
  Rolls Royce sponsored PhD scholarship – Machining of new aerospace materials
  Prof D Axinte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a 3 year PhD programme in partnership with industry to address key challenges in manufacturing engineering.
  Sensing tribology within heavy machines
  Research Group: nCATS
  Prof R J K Wood
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Robert Wood. Co-supervisor Terry Harvey. Project description. This PhD is aligned with a major EPSRC funded research being conducted at the national centre for advanced tribology at Southampton (nCATS) in collaboration the machine learning and sensors research groups in ECS.
  Modelling and predicting flotation froth stability
  Dr P Brito-Parada, Prof S Neethling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The performance of flotation cells is highly dependent on the behaviour of the froth phase. The phenomena taking place in the froth not only control the water that reports to the concentrate, and thus the entrainment of gangue material, but also have a significant impact on the overall recovery.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
