Project Description

University of Manchester
Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl)

This joint university / industry PhD offers an exciting opportunity to undertake research on novel ground penetrating radar (GPR) systems. The research is aimed at advancing the state-of-the-art in the deployment of GPR from unmanned air and ground vehicles. The specific focus of the research is the design and fabrication of bespoke antennas and arrays.

The successful candidate will join a well-established team of engineers and scientists, with a proven track record of research and technology transfer across a broad range of electromagnetic inspection applications. The research will be split between sites and is likely to involve some travel.

Funding Notes

Funding: The award will cover tuition fees at the UK / EU rate. The annual stipend, including enhancement, is £18,000 (tax free) p.a. In addition, the necessary travel and consumable costs associated with the project are also supported.


Candidates must be a UK citizen and have a 1st or high 2i in a relevant Engineering subject, Physics or Mathematics. The ideal candidate will also have a strong interest in problem solving, an enthusiasm for modelling and hardware design, an ability to convert theoretical understanding into practical solutions and an ability to work in a multidisciplinary team with physicists, application engineers, business managers and end-users.
