  Applications of topology to soft matter physics
  Dr M Grant, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address mathematical problems in the research field of algebraic topology, inspired by the theory of topological defects in soft materials.
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  New responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells have high efficiency, generate low levels of emissions, and can consume renewable sources, in combination with energy vectors, making them excellent candidates as for alternative power production technologies.
  Process models for Portland cement manufacturing
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cement is the most ubiquitous product after drinking water, with 4.1B tons produced in 2017 alone, enough for half a ton per person per year worldwide.
  Thermally superconducting and superinsulating nanofluids and their use in nanodevices
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology is the forefront of a new industrial revolution. As the scale of new devices shrink, the design bottle-neck becomes getting rid of waste heat.
  Development of a new optical sensor that combines plasmonics, RF photonics, interferometry and deep learning
  Research Group: Electrooptics Group
  Prof S Sternklar, Dr Yuri Gorodetski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When light interacts with the environment, one or more of its properties change. These properties include. amplitude, phase, wavelength and polarization.
  Quantum dynamics of frustrated spin systems
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr S Giblin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We investigate the magnetic spin dynamics of bulk systems as quantum effects start to become relevant at low temperature. We do this by looking at spin relaxation using a variety of experimental probes.
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 15 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
