  A Multi-Sensory Approach To Buried Asset Detection
  Prof N Metje, Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Faramarzi
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well known that currently no technology exists which can locate a buried asset with confidence across all expected working scenarios.
  Assessing the condition of roads and buried infrastructure using geophysical technologies
  Prof D N Chapman, Prof N Metje
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With a growing urban population around the world, we are more than ever reliant on a healthy and functional infrastructure system.
  Creation of real-time gravity maps through data quality control and survey optimisation
  Prof N Metje, Dr M Holynski
Application Deadline: 30 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

One challenge with existing gravity measurements is associated with the time-consuming and complex post-processing required to convert the measured data into meaningful gravity information in order to produce initially 2D gravity maps.
  Investigating the relationships between geotechnical and geophysical properties of the ground for assessing condition change of geotechnical assets
  Prof D N Chapman, Dr A Royal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geophysical surveys are becoming increasingly important in understanding the performance, and change in performance, of geotechnical assets (embankments, earth dams, etc.) over time.
  Large-eddy Simulation of Particulate Plastic Pollution Transport in Turbulent Flows
  Dr B Fraga
Application Deadline: 10 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project intends to investigate how turbulence affects the transport of light plastic bodies, with special attention to the effect of secondary currents and the shape and density of the bodies.
  Multi-hazard risk and uncertainty quantification for rail infrastructure systems
  Dr S Kaewunruen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Birmingham, as part of a multi-university multi-disciplinary rail research team, has recently been The University of Birmingham is host…
  Numerical Simulation of Sustainable Anaerobic Baffled Reactors for Wastewater Treatment
  Dr B Fraga, Dr S Sharifi
Application Deadline: 10 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diseases that originate in poor sanitary conditions cause 2.1M deaths every year. This situation particularly affects developing countries, as indicated by UNICEF and WHO, with only 56% of the population having access to sanitation facilities in 2010.
  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.
  Causes of stress induced cardiac arrhythmia
  Dr J Winter, Dr D Pavlovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Abnormal heart rhythms, known as arrhythmia, are a major cause of morbidity and mortality, particularly in individuals with pre-existing cardiovascular disease.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
