  The Calculation of the Switching of Molecular Quantum Dot Cellular Automata for Mixed Valence Molecules
  Dr G Edwards, Dr G. Spink
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of Nanoelectronics is concerned with the materials, devices, circuits and systems relevant to contemporary integrated circuits (ICs).
  Nature-Inspired Low Friction Lubricated Surfaces
  Prof G McHale
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large amount of the world’s disposable energy is lost through friction and drag. This project will create new types of liquid and liquid-like surfaces which remove liquid friction and drag.
  NSIRC243 Scaling modelling for annulus environments.
  Miss M Mitzithra, Dr S Paul, Ms H Stedman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

NSIRC243. PhD Studentship (Sponsored by TWI Ltd) - Scaling Modelling for annulus environments. Institution. National Structural Integrity Research Centre (NSIRC).
  Developing NMR methods to characterise water transport through graphene-based membranes
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene oxide membranes (GOMs) have shown significant promise as filtration devices since they are impermeable to many substances but not to water.
  High Power Renewable Energy Nano Catalysis – Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry
  Prof A Schechter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of a low-cost, high-performance fuel cell is hindered by the lack of an active and electrocatalysts at the anode and cathode.
  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: 25 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3DMed scales up well-established researcher driven and strategic organisational collaborations between University of Brighton (UoB), UK and York University (YU), Canada.
  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.
  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].
