  Large-eddy Simulation of Particulate Plastic Pollution Transport in Turbulent Flows
  Dr B Fraga
Application Deadline: 10 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project intends to investigate how turbulence affects the transport of light plastic bodies, with special attention to the effect of secondary currents and the shape and density of the bodies.
  Quantum Technology gravity sensors - Creation of real-time gravity maps
  Prof N Metje, Dr M Holynski
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One challenge with existing gravity measurements is associated with the time-consuming and complex post-processing required to convert the measured data into meaningful gravity information in order to produce initially 2D gravity maps.
  Droplet Adhesion on Liquid-Repellent Surfaces
  Dr N Gao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student position funded at UK/EU rate is available to work on droplet wetting and adhesion behaviours in the group of Dr Nan Gao within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Birmingham.
  A microfluidic approach to assess the effectiveness of stabilisers on product shelf-life.
  Prof M Simmons
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Professor Mark Simmons and Dr Nina Kovalchuk, School of Chemical Engineering. Funding. University PhD scholarship (UK/EU applicants only).
  Nature Inspired Optical Nanostructures for Sensing
  Dr R Gupta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The wings of a morpho butterfly show vivid blue colour because of the presence of periodic nanostructures. We have been developing photochemistries and materials to fabricate similar nanostructures made of hydrogels.
  Advanced Dielectric Antennas for Future Terahertz Systems
  Dr S Hanham
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Terahertz waves (0.1 to 10 THz) have a range of useful properties that make them promising for future imaging, communication and radar systems.
  A microstructure-informed model to predict the deformation and shear bands formed during a nickel superalloy machining operation
  Dr H Basoalto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Metallurgy and Materials is seeking a high calibre candidate for a PhD studentship in materials modelling.
  ICase PhD Studentship - Discovery, Processing and Characterisation of Reactive Structures
  Prof M Attallah
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from graduates with a first class, or upper second-class degree in an appropriate discipline such as, materials science and engineering, physics or mechanical engineering for a PhD project on the discovery, additive processing, and characterisation of reactive structures.
  Advanced THz microscopy for biological applications
  Dr M Navarro-Cia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sandwiched between microwaves and infrared in the electromagnetic spectrum, THz radiation (ca. 0.1 – 3 THz) holds promise for medical diagnosis, security applications (chemical fingerprinting and standoff screening) and industrial control processes.
