Showing 1 to 10 of 26
  Synthetic Antiferromagnetic Skyrmions
  Prof C H Marrows
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
In this project we will study magnetic skyrmions, nanoscale swirls of spins that possess a special topology. They appear in properly designed magnetic multilayers at room temperature and are candidates for next-generation data storage technology.
  Machine learning to detect earthquakes in energy extraction
  Dr A Nowacki, Prof D Hogg
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Our society depends on the safe extraction of energy from a mixture of natural resources, including heat from the ground in geothermal power production, and the exploitation of hydrocarbons.
  Miniaturised microfluidic technology to probe the fundamentals of heterogeneous ice nucleation
  Dr B J Murray, Dr J Shim
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The heterogeneous nucleation of ice is a critical process in fields as diverse as cryopreservation through to atmospheric cloud formation, yet it is extremely poorly understood.
  Optimal Grid schemes for Full Waveform Inversion of Fractures
  Dr M Hildyard, Dr S Titarenko
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Elastic wave interaction with individual and multiple fractures can be accurately modelled through numerical schemes. However, even for forward modelling alone this can require long runtimes.
  Vitamin C microbubbles as therapeutic agents for colorectal cancer
  Prof SD Evans
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Recent published studies have shown that Vitamin C can target and kill colorectal cancer cells that contain gene mutations that are present in approximately 50% of colorectal cancer tumours.
  Warm climate, high seas. How did sea level change in Europe during the Last Interglacial?
  Dr N Barlow, Dr L Gregoire
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The big picture. Global sea-level rise is one of our greatest environmental challenges and is predicted to continue for hundreds of years, even if global greenhouse-gas emissions are stopped immediately (Clark et al., 2016).
  Understanding how climate change affects the tropical rain belt over Africa and its variability
  Dr J Marsham, Dr D Parker
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
SUMMARY. The tropics cover 40% of Earth’s area, include 36% of its land, and are home to 40% of its people. Africa is the continent with the largest tropical land mass, and its rapidly growing population includes many of the people who are most vulnerable to climate change.

Elastic wave interaction with individual and multiple fractures can be accurately modelled through numerical schemes. However, even for forward modelling alone this can require long runtimes.
  Stratified or not-stratified or somewhere in between: Multi-disciplinary study of partially stratified layers in Earth’s outer core
  Dr S Rost, Dr J Mound, Dr A Nowacki
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Earth’s outer core, the source of Earth’s magnetic field, is considered to be well mixed due to the fast convection (with velocities on the order of 10s km/yr) and the low viscosity of the liquid iron-nickel alloy.
