  3D nanoprinted cell scaffolds for oxygen and pH sensing
  Dr N Radacsi, Dr S Smith, Prof I Underwood
Application Deadline: 15 February 2019
Fully funded PhD studentship available on 3D optically responsive nanostructured cell scaffolds. This is a 4-year PhD (unlike the standard 3.5 year UK PhD), as it is within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Intelligent Sensing and Measurement.
  Advanced methods for shale characterisation
  Dr E Mangano, Prof S Brandani
Applications accepted all year round
Shale gas has been recently recognised as a strategic energy source with the potential to revolutionise the worldwide energy layout and bridge the transition to a low-carbon future.
  Ammonia-based ionic liquids for chemical conversion of CO2
  Dr I Tudela-Montes, Dr F Garcia Garcia
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Self-funded students are welcome to apply for a PhD project to study the potential use of ammonia-based ionic liquids for chemical conversion of CO2.
  Antimicrobial coatings for biomedical applications
  Dr M Chen
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Antimicrobial coating industry is rapidly growing. This is to prevent the serious problems caused by bacterial adhesion and subsequent biofilm formation on the surfaces of many devices.
  Applying bioengineering to energy challenges: analysing and modelling electrical devices made using synthetic biological components
  Dr K Dunn
Application Deadline: 10 February 2019
Synthetic biology and bionanotechnology can be used to create electrical devices such as biophotovoltaics. These systems have the potential to make a significant impact in the renewable energy sector, but in order to make them effectively we need models that can predict how they will behave.
  Big Data Analysis from Bridges: Developing Structural Health Monitoring Instrumentation
  Prof M Forde, Dr H Chai
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Most bridges worldwide lack Structural Health Monitoring instrumentation. Part of the reason is that older bridges pre-date the development of appropriate instrumentation; and part of the reason is that bridge owners do not have the staff/resource to analyse the “big data” emanating from an instrumentation system.
  Big data of multiphase flow measurement for optimising oil and gas production
  Dr Y Yang
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Oil and gas occupies a significant sector in the world’s energy structure. The trend to construct digital oil fields based on internet of things has raised increasing demand for accurately monitor the health and production of the entire oil field down to individual wells in a real-time manner.
  Biocompatible and biodegradable nanomaterials for targeted biomedical imaging
  Dr M Chen
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Biomedical imaging is a very important tool in cell biology and disease diagnosis. It not only allows investigating the basic biological processes at cellular level but also facilitating early diagnosis and understanding the pathological processes.
  Bio-inspired high-efficient arrays of tidal energy converters
  Dr IM Viola
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
The UK tidal sector has recently achieved remarkable progress, including deploying the first two arrays of tidal turbines (Nova Innovation and MeyGen) and deploying the world’s largest twin-rotor floating tidal turbine (Scotrenewable).
  Contact models for DEM simulations of non-spherical particles
  Dr K Hanley, Dr J Blackford
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The discrete element method (DEM) is a simulation tool originally developed in the 1970s. DEM allows complex systems of particles to be modelled, enabling analysis of the particle-scale mechanisms that underlie the complexity of the overall material response.
