  Long-term behaviour of nuclear wasteforms under geological disposal conditions
  Dr AH Mir
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Geological disposal of nuclear waste is an internationally accepted methodology for nuclear waste management and pursued by the United Kingdom.
  Understanding Radiation Damage in Zircaloy-4 for Current and Future Nuclear Applications
  Dr J Hinks
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation-induced defects can have significant effects on the performance of materials and hence need to be accurately quantified and understood for the continued use and future development of nuclear reactor technologies.
  Elasticity of geological and planetary materials using novel X-ray imaging
  Dr A Thomson, Prof J Brodholt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The structure and composition of the Earth’s deep interior cannot be directly measured, but instead must be inferred from seismic velocity data generated by Earthquakes.
  Next generation solid-state sodium electrolytes for battery and sensor applications
  Prof P S Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is on the development of sodium-based solid-state electrolytes for re-chargeable battery and sensor applications.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Experimental and Theoretical Understanding of Rhenium Precipitation in Tungsten for Nuclear Fusion Applications
  Dr J Hinks, Dr M Molinari
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear fusion promises unlimited supplies of low-carbon energy but major technological challenges must be overcome before this becomes a reality.
  Ductility & Brittleness in Refractory and High-entropy Alloys
  Dr C Brandl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For a significant increase in operating temperatures in energy conversion processes, alternative constituent phases for new high-temperature alloys beyond tradition Ni-basis superalloys have to be explored.
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators.
  PhD position in the field of nonlinear and quantum optics with polaritons in semiconductor nanostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Dr D Krizhanovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in semiconductor nano-technology lead to a new generation of robust controllable structures where manipulation of coupling between light and matter can be performed on a submicrometer scale.
  Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling.
  Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics: 2D materials and beyond
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
  Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.
  Fundamental Excitations of monolayer 2D Semiconductors
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Prof D Smith
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. We are offering a PhD position suitable for a candidate who has a real interest in understanding the properties of technologically important materials.
