  Designing novel electrode materials for lithium-ion batteries using operando techniques and smart synthetic control
  Dr N Reeves-McLaren, Dr R Boston
Application Deadline: 21 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The energy grids of the future will be increasingly dependent on renewable sources of power generation, such as wind, solar and wave.
  Fully-funded PhD studentship - III-nitride semiconductors and devices
  Prof T Wang
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to work on (1) Advanced MOVPE epitaxial growth of novel III-nitride semiconductors and advanced material characterisation (2) Advanced fabrication of the integrated devices combining III-nitride and other III-V semiconductors.
  Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
  Towards heterogeneous integration of photonic and electronic devices in microsystems
  Prof J Heffernan, Dr K Groom
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded PhD Studentship (UK/EU only) is available for research into III-V compound semiconductor structures tailored specifically for integration within a micro-transfer print process for heterogeneous integration of photonic and electronic devices in microsystems.
  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.
  Ingestible Origami Robots for Biomedicine
  Dr S Miyashita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft robots that can be swallowed (ingested) and can accomplish various surgical tasks are no longer a fiction for engineering. Instead a medical doctor cutting and suturing, we expect robots to perform equivalent surgical operations.
  Robotic Molecules: Self-repairing and Self-assembling Machine
  Dr S Miyashita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to develop a totally new approach for the realization of self-repairable and self-assemble machines. We literally aim at making "living LEGO".
