  Investigating the Interactions between Drilling Mud and Surrounding Soil in Horizontal Directional Drilling
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Horizontal directional drilling is a technique that offers the ability to install pipes and cables without the need for open cut excavation.
  Numerical modelling of cement-bentonite barriers under various in situ loading, and hydrogeological, conditions
  Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hardened low permeability slurry walls are used to control groundwater/contamination plume flows in various engineering applications.
  Potential use of Recycled/Secondary Aggregates in Geotechnical Engineering
  Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The amount of primary aggregates, a finite and non-renewable resource, used annually in Europe is in the Gigatonne range, whilst more than a Gigatonne of wastes are landfilled each year.
  Use of polymer concrete as a lining material for small diameter tunnels installed using Microtunnelling Machines
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trenchless technologies are used to install buried infrastructure without the need for open cut excavations. One such technique is microtunnelling; this uses microtunnelling machines to excavate the bore whilst the lining is traditionally installed via pipe jacking or auto-erecting segmental systems.
  Droplet Adhesion on Liquid-Repellent Surfaces
  Dr N Gao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student position funded at UK/EU rate is available to work on droplet wetting and adhesion behaviours in the group of Dr Nan Gao within the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Birmingham.
  A New Paradigm for Quantum Materials Discovery: S = ½ Kagomé Magnets in the Two-Dimensional Limit
  Dr L Clark
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking applications for a highly motivated and enthusiastic PhD candidate to join the research group of Dr Lucy Clark in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham.
  Catalysts for the low-temperature production of hydrogen from ammonia
  Dr J Makepeace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from enthusiastic and motivated students are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.
  Development of precise polymer nanoparticles
  Prof R O'Reilly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is only open to UK or EU nationals. The successful applicant should possess a good (1st or 2.1 UK or equivalent) degree in chemistry from a well-regarded institution.
  Engineering Microbial Physiology through Polymer and Computational Sciences
  Research Group: Materials Chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr S Jabbari
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, there has been an increasing use of polymers to interface with bacteria and other microorganisms, either to treat microbial infections, to prevent and control biofilm formation, or as a platform to grow and maintain microbial cultures for biotechnology.
  Metal-nitrogen-hydrogen materials for solid state electrolytes
  Dr J Makepeace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from enthusiastic and motivated students are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.
