  Development of methodologies to accelerate alloy design for additive manufacturing
  Research Group: MAPP - Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes
  Dr K Christofidou
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to produce parts with complex geometries, previously inaccessible via traditional fabrication methods, has made additive manufacturing (AM) an enabling production process for a host of industries.
  Coupled homogenization and precipitation kinetics during additive manufacture and processing
  Research Group: MAPP - Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes
  Dr M Anderson, Prof H Basoalto
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The additive manufacture of metal alloys through powder processing is an exciting field where the potential benefits to industry are numerous and the scientific problems are challenging.
  Active wearables for efficient living
  Dr D Damian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There has been a surge in the use of wearables for sensing health indices such as blood pressure or body stress, to replace or augmenting physical capability [1-4].
  Adaptive Learning in brain-robot interactions
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop a non-invasive brain-machine interface (BMI) that allows a user to direct a semi-autonomous robot to perform different tasks through brain signals.
  Cybersecurity in Electricity Grids
  Dr I Esnaola
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increasing interconnectivity between information systems, communications, and the electricity grid gives rise to numerous benefits, but it also amplifies the impact of potential threats, both intentional and unintentional.
  Multimodal Control of Prosthetic Limbs/Paralysed Muscles
  Dr M Arvaneh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to enhance the quality of life of patients with amputees, spinal cord injury, stroke and brain injury by developing advanced control strategies for artificial limbs.
  Robotic Implants to Control Body Functions
  Dr D Damian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we explore a new class of medical robots – robotic implants, which reside inside the body for the repair, reinforcement, and control of physical functions for a long period of time.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Multilayer networks and Games of incomplete information for infrastructure resilience
  Dr G Punzo
Application Deadline: 25 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infrastructure are socio-technical systems. they are comprised of (1) the technical, engineered side and (2) the social layer, that exchange stresses and strains leading at times to system failures.
  EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from qualified graduates for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the area of Advanced Biomedical Materials.
  Towards the vehicle of the future: advanced modelling and state estimation for enhancing vehicle safety
  Dr B Lenzo, Dr A Holloway
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The programme of research between the university and Siemens Industry Software NV offers a unique opportunity to gain both academic and industrial experience in vehicle dynamics modelling and test.
  Enhancing passenger safety through path planning and control of autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles
  Dr B Lenzo, Dr A Holloway
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Traffic-related fatalities are the eighth leading cause of death worldwide, ahead of HIV/AIDS, and the first leading cause of death for children and young adults between 5 and 29 years old.
  Development of Modular Large Wind Turbine Blades
  Dr A Asthana, Dr F Kara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wind turbine blades measuring up to 85 m, are manufactured from a single piece of glass fiber and can cost up to £100,000. The transportation of these large blades requires expensive specialist machinery and often new road construction, costing ~£50,000/blade.
  Manufacturing using Digital Reconfigurable Architectures
  Dr S Pope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Would you like to work on an exciting project that has the potential to revolutionise the way we manufacture existing and next generation devices, using an approach that has reconfigurability and sustainability at its core?.
  Multi-Sensor Data Fusion and Smart Decision Making
  Prof L Mihaylova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop scalable models and algorithms for fusion of big data in complex systems. The project will focus on problems from smart cities –such as traffic modelling, mobility prediction and control.
