  The variability of the Earth’s electron radiation belt
  Prof R Horne, Dr G Del-Zanna, Dr S Glauert
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Earth’s electron radiation belts consist of high energy (relativistic) electrons which are trapped by the Earth’s external magnetic field and which circulate around the Earth.
  Innovative characterisation of historic contaminated sites using rapid measurement tools
  Dr F Coulon, Dr M Alamar
Application Deadline: 27 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aligns with Cranfield University’s programme of research on contaminated land remediation and management, enhanced landfill mining and resource…
  Understanding domestic water use behaviour - PhD
  Dr H Smith, Dr P J Jeffrey
Application Deadline: 17 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting fully funded PhD, will deliver innovative insights around domestic water use behaviours and the use of ‘smart’ water use sensors, in order to support more resilient water services well into the future against a backdrop of significant challenge.
  PhD - Advanced optical systems for terabit free-space communications (Huawei Technologies Sweden AB)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Next generation mobile communications networks, such as 6G will revolutionise the way we interact with technology, enabling super high-speed connections to our mobile devices.
  PhD - Laser sources and semiconductor optical amplifiers for free-space orbital angular momentum communication systems (Huawei Technologies Sweden AB)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr L Hou, Prof J Marsh
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wavelength division multiplexed(WDM)optical transceivers and semiconductor optical amplifiers have been highly engineered for use within optical fibre networking and are a key enabling technologies that are at the heart of our optical communications systems.
  PhD: Atmospheric monitoring for next generation cable free optical communication technologies (British Telecom)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr M P J Lavery
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cable-free optical communication systems are vital for building the communication networks of the future. Traditionally wireless connections have been based on radio or microwave systems.
  Quantum Mechanics in Phase Space
  Dr M Everitt, Dr J Samson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference. PH/ME-Un2/2019. School. School of Science. Location. Loughborough. UK/EU Fee band. Research Band 1 Classroom Based (£4,327).
  Development of novel energy-efficient integrated systems for building operation optimization (Application Ref: SF19/EE/ABE/Zingre)
  Dr K Zingre, Prof B Kumar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The climate change and the rising living standard have significantly increased the electricity consumption by the building sector worldwide from 26% in 1980 to 54% in 2010, and predicted to further increase at alarming rate to 84% in 2050 (Zingre et al., 2017).
  Microbial survival in the energy-limited deep biosphere
  Research Group: Earth Surface Science
  Dr J Bradley, Prof M Trimmer, Prof L Belyea
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The deep subsurface biosphere contains a vast proportion of Earth’s microbial life and organic carbon. In deep, energy-limited settings, microorganisms persist over extraordinarily long timescales with very slow metabolisms – constituting an important analogue to the potential for life beyond Earth.
  Computational Fluid Dynamics Modelling of Tornadoes along Quasi-Linear Convective Systems
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof D Schultz, Dr A Revell, Dr A Skillen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK experiences as many tornadoes as the USA as a whole. 1.2 vs 1.3 tornadoes per 10,000 km2 per year on average (Mulder and Schultz 2015).
  Probing organic composition of the atmosphere with Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof H Coe, Dr J Allan, Prof G McFiggans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a huge number of organic compounds present in the atmosphere. They are emitted from a wide range of sources that are both natural and man-made.
  Studying the formation of ice fragments during freezing and riming using high resolution holographic imaging.
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr J Crosier, Dr P Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice and mixed phase clouds have important effects in the atmosphere, via interactions with incoming solar radiation and outgoing terrestrial radiation, and generation of precipitation which impacts on the surface.
  Understanding the formation and impacts of pockets of high ice crystal concentrations in mixed-phase layer clouds
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Dr P Connolly, Dr D Topping
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to understand how small-scale heterogeneity observed within clouds – so called “pockets of high ice crystal number density” – affect mixed-phase layer clouds (see Lloyd et al, 2015).
  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  Dynamics of Midlatitude and Tropical Convective Storms
  Prof D Schultz, Prof G Vaughan, Dr L Garcia-Carreras
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Convection is ubiquitous in the atmosphere. Although the ingredients of deep moist convection are well known (lift, instability, and moisture), how those ingredients come together to produce the observed panoply of convective storms worldwide remains an active area of research.
