  The aerodynamics of freight trains
  Prof Mark Sterling, Dr D Soper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developments in the capabilities of rail freight, including increased freight speeds and larger, better connected rail networks, will enable greater competition between rail and road markets while having many environmental benefits.
  The climatology of thunderstorm downbursts
  Prof Mark Sterling, Prof G Kopp, Dr M Jesson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thunderstorm downbursts are relatively short-lived, extreme winds which can result in wind speeds matching those of medium-strength tornadoes.
  Design of a device for resection of bladder tumours
  Prof D Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For all patients with bladder cancer, the initial surgical procedure comprises endoscopic bladder cancer surgery. transurethral resection of bladder tumour (TURBT) (This surgical procedure originated in the 1930s and has changed little since.
  Development of a bladder phantom
  Prof D Shepherd
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Realistic physical models, or phantoms, of the human bladder are essential for testing new medical devices and techniques before clinical trials, and to reduce the need for animals in device development (3Rs).
  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.
  Temporal Design for the Additive Manufacturing of Medical Devices
  Dr L Thomas-Seale, Dr R J Dyson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dr Lauren Thomas-Seale is a principle investigator in the Biomedical Engineering Research Group, School of Engineering, University of Birmingham.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
