  Development of Spin based Transistors with 2D Materials
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Prof Y Xu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past few decades, size of transistors has been tremendously reduced from a few centimetres to a few tens of nanometres. This trend in down scaling the device size has almost reached its ultimate physical limitation, challenging Moore’s Law which has been valid for almost half a century.
  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.
  Nanoscale Materials for Energy Harvesting
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Dr M Newton
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr. Marcus Newton. Project description. The development of portable energy harvesting power sources as an alternative to batteries is an attractive prospect that will permit a new class of renewable energy devices that can operate indefinitely.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Tumour exosome-functionalised magnetic nanoparticles for magnetic resonance imaging guided precision medicine and personalised breast cancer treatment
  Dr M Chen, Dr B Qian, Prof R Vellaisamy
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. One of the difficulties in cancer treatment is the tumour heterogeneity. Therefore, the conventional “one size fits all” approach and even the targeted therapeutics will not efficiently treat all cancer patients.
  Atom probe tomography for next generation 3D semiconductor nanodevice characterization
  Dr W Vandervorst, Dr J Scheerder
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ever-ongoing downscaling of semiconductor technology has led to a paradigm shift from planar to 3D devices. Industry has already started moving towards 3D architectures such as FinFETS, nanosheets and nanowires because they offer better electrostatic control and reduced power dissipation [1].
  Evolving novel and unconventional methods for making precise angstrom capillaries using 2D materials, and exploring molecular separation through them
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angstrom-scale pores and capillaries have been studied intensively because of their importance in many natural phenomena and use in numerous applications.
  Microfluidics based core-shell droplet generator: design, construction, drop characterization and bio-compatibility
  Prof M Marengo, Prof M Santin, Dr K Rodriguez-Echavarria
Application Deadline: 20 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you looking for a big research challenge in biomedical and pharmaceutical devices? We are looking for a brilliant mechanical engineer or bio-engineer with the ambition to design and construct a prototype of a personalised drug delivery system able to generate micro- or nano-pills, which can be ‘printed’ using the concept of a droplet generator.
  Synthesis and Structural Characterisation of Calcium Thickened Greases
  Dr OM Mykhaylyk, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 23 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lubricants have been in use for centuries. Their primary purpose is to increase efficiency of movement and reduce friction and wear between components.
  Band structure measurements in van der Waals heterostructures
  Dr N Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) beautifully reveals the momentum-resolved electronic structure at the surface of crystalline solids.
  Transparent silver electrodes for clean and renewable electricity generation and storage (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MPEE/ZOPPI)
  Dr G Zoppi, Dr V Barrioz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional layers such as transparent conductive oxides can offer excellent electrical and optical properties in electronic devices (touch screens, LCDs etc).
  Design of functional chitosan films: antimicrobial and heavy metal capture applications
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chitosan is a biodegradable polymer obtained from natural, abundant and renewable sources. Chitosan has been the focus of much research into its applications as an antimicrobial, and for its ability to capture heavy metals from contaminated water.
  Carbon nanotubes in the boron neutron capture therapy of cancer
  Dr G Calabrese
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The early promise of boron neutron capture therapy as a method for the treatment of brain cancer has been mainly inhibited by the inherent toxicity associated with 10B-containing pharmacophores and the need for the ability to cross biological membranes.
  CNT/cement nanocomposite materials for structural applications for buildings
  Prof M Limbachiya, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) with remarkable mechanical and electrical properties have been used for enhancement of mechanical properties of polymer matrix materials but its capability for enhancement of cement based materials has not been widely explored yet.
  Enhancement of electrical conductivity of carbon fibre composite for resisting lightening strike on aircrafts
  Dr H Hadavinia, Prof T Zhang, Prof D Wertheim, Dr A Curley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the structure of new advanced civil aircrafts the main fuselage structures are being redesigned to use carbon fibre-reinforced composites (CFRP) mainly due to their lightweight, high specific stiffness and strength.
  Direct characterisation of TRPC channel dynamics triggered by drug-like modulators using high-speed atomic force microscopy
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr G Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rapid expansion in the structural understanding of membrane proteins through recent progress in electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography is leading to an ever greater need for techniques which provide high temporal resolution dynamics.
