  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Engineering laser beams for novel interaction with materials and enhanced application functionality
  Prof G Dearden, Dr S Edwardson
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate optical techniques for modulating and manipulating light from solid-state pulsed lasers operating in the nanosecond, picosecond and femtosecond regime, and applying these to explore novel mechanisms of interaction with engineering materials.
  Heat Energy Transfer – Nanomaterial, Nanofluid for Heating & Cooling (PHDCEPS192004)
  Dr M Yaseen
Application Deadline: 17 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inter disciplinary research –chemical and engineering science graduate welcome. Fully funded for UK or EU students. With the global requirement for energy consumption increasing efforts to find alternative energy source as well as to increase the efficiency of available energy usage are in now paramount.
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  The Migration of Droplets in Multi-Material Problems and Dispersed Multiphase Flows
  Dr M Lappa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The relevance of droplet dynamics and related non-equilibrium phenomena in several industrial applications and manufacturing techniques calls for new advanced studies using the tools of thermodynamics and computational fluid dynamics.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  Electronic Engineering: Self-funded PhD Project: Hot electron transport through nanowires
  Dr R Cobley, Prof R Palmer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subject areas. Electronics, Physics, Engineering, Surface science. Start date. January 2020. Project description. In electronic devices, electrons with significantly more energy than the background are termed ‘hot’.
  The Simulation of Quantum Transport in Topological Insulators (TIs) and TI Based Nanoscale Field Effect Transistors (TI FETs)
  Dr G Edwards, Dr T. Papadopoulos
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).
  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.
  Modelling the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for continuous manufacture
  Dr M Jorge, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-Organic Frameworks, or MOFs for short, are exciting nanoporous materials at the forefront of many new scientific discoveries.
  Functional nanoparticles for plant systems (EPS2020/37)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop nanoparticle-based reagent for delivery of bioactive molecules to plants. Food shortage is likely to be a major concern in the next decade if the global population grows at the current rate.
  Magnetic molecular imprinted polymers (MMIP) for detecting biohazard pollutants (EPS2020/35)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop MMIP for binding and detecting harmful biomolecules in the environment. Biohazard pollutants are health concerns but they are usually at a very low concentration that many conventional monitoring techniques are inefficient.
  Hybrid piezoelectric films and smart icephobic coatings with acoustic wave strategies for active ice protection in wind turbines (Ref: RENU20/EE/MPEE/FU)
  Prof R Fu, Prof G McHale
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU)is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
  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).
