  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
  Development of a spatially resolved spectroscopy probe for application in pharmaceutical drying processes
  Dr Y Chen, Dr C Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being the most widely studied PAT technologies, to date, most applications of NIR and Raman spectroscopy are carried out using standard measurement geometry without specifying and differentiating spatial arrangement between the incident and collecting optics.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
  Measuring and modelling agglomeration and breakage during agitated vacuum thermal drying
  Dr C Price, Dr P Mulheran
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the last two decades considerable emphasis has been placed on the role API particle attributes play in both drug product performance and processability.
  Nucleation of organic crystals in flows: Discover how organic crystals nucleate and how fluid flows can be used to influence this
  Prof J Sefcik, Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nucleation is a birth of new crystals.
  Biofilm formation and loss under dynamic conditions
  Prof V Phoenix
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biofilms cause significant challenges in systems under flow, causing bioclogging, corrosion, and contamination. How biofilms respond to these dynamic conditions is poorly understood.
  Studying drug delivery in micro and nano flows.
  Dr M Zagnoni, Dr E Graham
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is a 36-month full-time, fully-funded PhD, supported by the University of Strathclyde and TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory (NEL).
  Global warming, plankton functional diversity, and the biological ocean pump
  Dr B Chen, Dr N Banas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We all know that global warming is a serious issue for the future of humankind and is intimately related with anthropogenic CO2 emissions.
  Protecting our seas using computers - Modelling and forecasting the expansion of a highly invasive seaweed
  Dr B Chen, Prof M Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This fully-funded 3.5 year studentship will remain open only until filled. We recommend applying immediately. In this project, you will meet with the challenge of developing an individual based model to simulate the growth and dispersal of a highly invasive seaweed (Japanese eelgrass) driven by coastal ocean currents.
  Design Optimisation of Energy Saving Technologies for Energy Efficient Ships
  Dr Y Demirel, Dr W Shi, Prof M Atlar
Application Deadline: 30 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Shipping has been, and still is, one of the most important methods of transport, with more reliance and importance now being placed on this mode of transport as a consequence of advances in shipping technology and the ability of ships to store and transport increasing capacities of goods.
