  Collective Behaviour of Autonomous Organisms: From Bio-Particles to Robotics
  Dr F Paillusson, Dr A Millard, Dr A Zvelindovsky
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Active Matter is an emerging interdisciplinary field in physics and applied mathematics which refers to systems comprising interacting agents which can drive their own motion (for instance birds, fish, insects, “smart” artificial micro-particles, or bio-mimicking robots).
  Ergodicity Breaking and Many-Body Scars in Rydberg-Atom Quantum Simulators
  Dr Z Papic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A perennial mystery of nature is how order can exist amidst chaos. Familiar systems such as the clock pendulum exhibit regular periodic motion.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Laser shock and shot peening induced surface nanocrystallisation
  Prof M Fitzpatrick, Dr V Janik, Dr W Yuefan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University and the Agency for Science, Technology and Research in Singapore (A*STAR) are inviting applications from suitably qualified UK/EU/international graduates for one fully-funded PhD studentship for the project ‘Laser shock and shot peening induced surface nanocrystallisation’.
  Emergent electronic phenomena due to twist degree of freedom in van der Waals heterostructures
  Dr M Mucha-Kruczynski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Dr Marcin Mucha-Kruczynski in the Department of Physics.
  The physics of flowing suspensions with viscoelastic continua
  Dr C Ness
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Suspensions of particles in liquid are found throughout nature and industry, for instance slurries and ceramics. We are just beginning to understand the dramatic influence that particle-particle interactions have on their flow behaviour when the liquid is Newtonian.
  Foam improved oil recovery
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure.
  Phase transitions in open quantum systems
  Dr P Kirton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing accurate simulations of quantum mechanical systems unavoidably involves taking into account coupling to the outside world.
  Control of nonlinear systems motivated by linear control theory
  Dr S S Aphale, Dr V Vaziri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improvements in hardware and software tools has facilitated the probing, understanding and control of complex nonlinear system dynamics.
  Novel physics arising from phase transitions in biology
  Dr C F Lee
Application Deadline: 10 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phase transitions, such as the freezing of water and the magnetisation of a ferromagnet upon lowering the ambient temperature, are familiar physical phenomena.
  Investigating Noise in Ageing Cellular Power Stations
  Prof N Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Project. Imperial College Mathematics. Student Background. Theoretical Physics, Mathematics/Statistics, Electrical Engineering (Biological knowledge not required).
  Quantum atomic gases and photons
  Prof J Ruostekoski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the success stories of quantum physics is how individual quantum particles have been controlled and manipulated for quite some time.
  Exploring the Sun’s Plasma Environment with the Parker Solar Probe Spacecraft
  Dr C Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun’s atmosphere, the solar corona, remains one of the last major areas of the solar system to be directly explored by a spacecraft, but over the next few years this will change with the NASA Parker Solar Probe (PSP) mission.
  Design principles for active solids
  Dr A Souslov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft materials surround us and compose us. Biological functions rely on active components embedded in soft biological matter. For example, muscles move because molecular motors convert chemical energy into work.
  Simulations of charge transport in organic polymer semiconductors
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Prof Alison Walker in the Department of Physics.
