  Cardiovascular Elastography: to develop computational and experimental methodologies to characterise cardiovascular tissue, implants and biocompatible materials in-vivo and ex-vivo
  Dr L Thomas-Seale
Applications accepted all year round
The biomedical engineering research group in the School of Engineering, University of Birmingham develop computational and experimental methodologies to characterise cardiovascular tissue, implants and biocompatible materials in-vivo and ex-vivo.
  Contact lenses for colour blind patients
  Dr H Butt, Prof S Dimov
Applications accepted all year round
Nanotechnology has a myriad of possible biomedical applications. A PhD position exists in the area of wearable bio-technologies with the focus on producing contact lenses for colour blind patients.
  Design and testing of spinal implants
  Prof D Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round
Severe back pain may be treated surgically by removing the intervertebral disc and replacing it with a disc replacement. This project will investigate new designs of disc replacement and use a spine simulator to mechanically test them..
  Developing Algorithms for Intelligent Predictive Manufacturing Systems
  Dr M Saadat
Applications accepted all year round
The project involves developing intelligent algorithms for predictive manufacturing systems applied to shopfloor operations and/or supply chain within a manufacturing enterprise.
  Development of a gas turbine engine as a range extender
  Prof K Jiang
Applications accepted all year round
The Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Birmingham has a worldwide reputation in developing microengines. We are currently looking for a student to a radical microturbine engine as a range extender for electric cars.
  Dynamics of fire whirl in open and closed spaces: fundamental physics and modelling
  Dr M Jangi
Applications accepted all year round
A fire whirl is an intense and potentially devastating phenomena which under the correct conditions can result in the formation of a tornado-like structure, i.e., the heat released from a fire changes the dynamics of the surrounding air causing a rotating column of air to form, which in turn increases the flame height and burning rate of the fire.
  Machining of advanced materials.
  Dr R Hood, Dr L Soo
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are accepted for a PhD project in the area of Machining of Advanced Materials (titanium alloys, nickel based superalloys, composite materials and nuclear materials).
  Novel Design and Additive Manufacture: applying fundamental concepts to solve industrial and clinical problems
  Dr L Thomas-Seale
Applications accepted all year round
The biomedical engineering research group in the School of Engineering, University of Birmingham develop novel design and additive manufacturing technologies by drawing innovation from nature and applying fundamental concepts to solve industrial and clinical problems.
  Prediction of the collapse of high rise buildings in the event of extreme fires by the means of high-fidelity CFD-FEM tools
  Dr M Jangi
Applications accepted all year round
Extreme fire events such as those in World Trade Centre in 2001 and the Grenfell Tower in London caused loss of lots of life and resources and distress in national and international scales.
  Robotic disassembly as a key enabler of remanufacturing
  Prof D T Pham
Applications accepted all year round
A key step in remanufacturing is disassembly of the “core”. As it is complex, disassembly tends to be manually executed and is labour intensive.
