  CFD Modelling of Metal Powder Production
  Dr A Mullis
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advent of 3D printing with metal powders has opened up a new era in manufacturing technology and is driving demand for fine, highly spherical metal powders.
  Combining nanoparticles, ultrasound and lasers for a new approach to identifying and treating lung cancer
  Dr J R McLaughlan, Dr D Cowell
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This multidisciplinary project will focus on the development and integration of our existing ultrasound hardware with EBUS style transducers and pulse laser illumination, to create a prototype system for testing the potential future clinical use.
  A digital manufacturing process for creating 3D fluidic channels
  Dr E Saleh
Application Deadline: 9 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to fabricate 3D micro robots digitally from a CAD model enables enormous opportunities to the development of robotic systems.
  Poroelasticity and lubrication mechanisms of cartilage in natural synovial joints
  Dr G de Boer, Dr M Bryant
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the most recent understanding of the lubrication mechanisms in natural synovial joints it remains uncertain as to how ultra-low friction is generated.
  Chiral spin structures in antiferromagnet-ferromagnet bilayers
  Dr T A Moore
Application Deadline: 21 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chiral twists in atomic magnetic structure are seen in ferromagnets at the interface with heavy metals such as Pt and Ir, leading to topologically stable magnetic domains known as skyrmions.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Quantum dot superstructures
  Dr K Critchley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet chemical synthesis methods can produce semiconductors that consist of 100s to 10,000s of atoms – known as colloidal quantum dots.
  Teaching a machine to move atoms
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr A Sweetman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is now routine in world leading laboratories to perform experiments where single atoms can be placed with atomic precision. These experiments are performed using scanning probe microscopes, and allow us to study the electrical and chemical properties of matter with sub-molecular, and even “sub-atomic” precision.
  The physics of glass - fundamental mechanisms and novel applications
  Dr J Mattsson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and behavior of glassy disordered non-equilibrium solids is one of the deepest unsolved fundamental questions in physics.
