  A Single Particle Nanomechanical Model for Cold Sintering
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Prof B Derby
Application Deadline: 17 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ceramic materials are often manufactured by sintering at high temperatures, an energy intensive process that can introduce defects during cooling from processing temperatures.
  A soft sensor for die melt temperature profile prediction of polymer extrusion
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage, Dr A Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymeric materials play a major role in production industry and hence advanced process monitoring is invaluable for improving the product quality and process efficiency.
  Automation of clothing pattern construction from body scan data
  Research Group: Textiles and Apparel
  Dr S Gill, Dr A Harwood, Dr S Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to harness new technologies to create pattern blocks for clothing that better reflect the individual’s size, shape and proportion.
  Bio-Inspired complex and adaptive materials and surfaces
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr A G Dumanli-Parry
Application Deadline: 28 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature produces hierarchical and complex nanostructures and patterns through the self-assembly of polymeric building blocks.
  Computational design and development of rotating heat pipes for gas turbine cooling
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas turbines are critical elements for power generation and transportation systems. They transform the chemical energy contained in the fuel by combustion, into mechanical energy.
  Correlative microscopy for studying graphene-based materials in biological environment
  Dr E Prestat, Dr C F Blanford, Dr C Bussy
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of nanomaterials for biomedical applications has the potential to provide new solutions to so-far unsolved clinical need.
  Designing peptide based hydrogels for 3D-bioprinting applications
  Research Group: Biomaterials
  Prof A Saiani
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogels have shown significant potential as scaffold of 3D cell culture and tissue engineering applications.
  Developing a class of self-immolitive near-infrared (NIR) responsive polymers for triggered drug delivery
  Dr S Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of polymers for drug delivery is a well-established field. Typically drugs are loaded into polymer micelles, vesicles or hydrogels and passively released overtime.
