  Dynamics of Foam Flow Through Processing Equipment
  Prof M Barigou
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas-liquid foams are structured two-phase fluids in which gas bubbles are separated by interconnecting thin liquid films, and the volume fraction of the continuous liquid phase is small in dry foams but can be substantial in wet foams.
  EPSRC supported PhD with Integrated Studies. Optimisation of Electrode Dispersions for Advanced Lithium Ion Batteries
  Prof M Simmons, Prof E Kendrick
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As society transitions to renewable and often variable power sources and drives towards decarbonizing the energy economy, energy storage will play an increasingly important role.
  Investigation of the bonding mechanisms in agglomerates and compacts to enable next-generation formulated product design
  Dr A Ingram
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Powder compaction is widely used in several industrial sectors, such as ceramics, batteries, detergents, food, and pharmaceuticals.
  Materials for metastable helium atom beam lithography
  Dr A Robinson, Prof J Preece
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Project. Materials for metastable helium atom beam lithography. Supervisors. Dr A Robinson and Prof J Preece. Tuition fees paid plus a stipend of £15,285 per annum.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability. It is common for medical professionals to recommend patients to use viscosupplementation, injection of artificial lubricant into arthritic joints, as a non-surgical intervention, for treatment of early stage arthritis.
  Understanding The Unusual Behaviour of Nanobubbles and Exploiting Their Extraordinary Properties For Industrial Applications
  Prof M Barigou
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nano-bubble dispersions are a novel type of nanoscale bubble system. The most peculiar characteristic of these nano-bubbles is their apparent extraordinary longevity, being able to last for weeks and months.
