Development of versatile, bespoke, low-volume fabric manufacturing processes.

Project Description

We offer a fully funded PhD opportunity to work with leading experts in technical textiles. The nature of fabric manufacture can cause fabric producers to enforce long lead times and large minimum orders on their customers, making it difficult to produce bespoke fabrics in limited quantities. The research programme will be directed at materials development in one or more of the following areas: polymer development, textile functionalisation, and stratified fabric production. In addition to process development and characterisation, you will design new or adapt existing fabric manufacturing processes and establish underpinning structure-property relationships.

Please contact Professor Parikshit Goswami () or Dr Sohel Rana () for enquiries on the project.


To apply, please complete an online application (please see link: under course Chemical Sciences, and highlight Professor Parikshit Goswami and Dr Sohel Rana as the supervisors. You should also send your CV and supporting documents to .

Funding Notes

The studentships will pay full cost of UK or EU tuition fees, and an annual tax-free bursary of £15,000 for three years. Successful applicants will have a very good first or upper second degree or Masters degree in Textile Technology. The course will begin in September 2019.
