Showing 1 to 10 of 15
  All cellulose and all keratin composites
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr M Ries
Applications accepted all year round
Processing of cellulose with ionic liquids gives the possibility to tap into nature’s most abundant biopolymer unlocking its remarkable natural properties via “green” dissolution routes.
  Chiral spin structures in antiferromagnet-ferromagnet bilayers
  Dr T A Moore
Application Deadline: 21 September 2019
Chiral twists in atomic magnetic structure are seen in ferromagnets at the interface with heavy metals such as Pt and Ir, leading to topologically stable magnetic domains known as skyrmions.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round
Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  Dynamics of complex magnets – non-colinear and frustrated antiferromagnets
  Dr J Barker
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Historically, antiferromagnets have been difficult to study and utilise as they do not couple strongly to external fields. Recent scientific advances have found new ways to directly control them, giving rise to the new field of antiferromagnetic spintronics.
  Multi-phase CFD modelling of biological tissue (with applications in liver surgery)
  Dr S Van Loo
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has been used extensively in medicine to model the flow of blood in large arteries and veins and in the heart, but our understanding of the spatial propagation of body fluids on the microscopic level is more limited.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round
Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Probing the molecular composition of planet-forming regions with ALMA
  Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
ALMA, the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array, is a state-of-the-art telescope in Chile. It has the resolution and sensitivity to observe emission from dust and gas on size scales similar to that of the Solar System in nearby young exoplanet-forming systems.
  Quantum dot superstructures
  Dr K Critchley
Applications accepted all year round
Wet chemical synthesis methods can produce semiconductors that consist of 100s to 10,000s of atoms – known as colloidal quantum dots.
  Quantum Many-Body Scars: developing a deeper understanding of quantum many-body scars as a new class of systems where ergodicity is weakly broken
  Research Group: Qunatum Information
  Dr Z Papic
Applications accepted all year round
In recent years, investigations of out-of-equilibrium phenomena in quantum many-particle systems have become one of the most active research areas in physics.
  Simulating the atmospheres of rocky exoplanets
  Prof D Marsh, Dr C Walsh
Applications accepted all year round
The current generation of exoplanet discovery missions has revealed the diversity of exoplanetary systems that include rocky worlds within the habitable zone of the host star.
