  Compressible Turbulence Models from Transformed Navier-Stokes Equation Perspectives (EPS2020/49)
  Dr S K Dadzie
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

High speed flow aerodynamics rely on the fundamental understanding of compressible gas dynamics. This project involves constructing new compressible turbulence flow theory using continuum flow equations beyond the classical Navier-Stokes conventional model.
  Crumbling reefs: Simulation based monitoring of coral reefs (EPS2020/31)
  Dr U Wolfram
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to develop computational models to analyse the impact of ocean acidification on cold-water coral reefs. Results will be used in the development of monitoring strategies to preserve some of the most vulnerable ecosystems.
  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.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Optical sensors for monitoring and control of ultra-short pulsed laser manufacturing processes (MTC)
  Prof D Reid, Prof D P Hand
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Free-space quantum communication technology
  Dr R Donaldson
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum communications offers a realistic possibility to share encryption keys that are future proof against advances in hacking algorithms and secure against eavesdropping attacks.
  Free-space quantum communication technology (EPS2020/26)
  Dr R Donaldson
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of free-space optical links rather than optical-fibre for quantum communications offers a range of new applications. During this PhD, the student will investigate the use of satellites, aerial platforms, and static links for quantum communications.
  Modelling growth, deposition and breakage of dynamic particle structures (EPS2020/52)
  Dr V Francia
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Investigation of the structure of cohesive powders under various flow regimes. Combining AI driven tools with state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and discrete element methods (DEM), we will look into how dynamic particle structures form in complex systems.
  MyFemur: Multiscale modelling from clinical image to personalised model to manufacture (EPS2020/30)
  Dr U Wolfram
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our vision in this project is to create a computational framework for the proximal femur that can allow clinicians to take limited clinical imaging data, e.g.
  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 - Development of Planar Waveguide Based Gas Sensors for Challenging Environments (AWE)- University of St Andrews
  Prof D Reid, Dr A Di Falco
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. This project looks to draw on the expertise within the CDT in Applied Photonics to support the development of novel optical sensing technologies to support AWE in its mission to support and maintain the UK’s nuclear deterrent.
