  Applications of topology to soft matter physics
  Dr M Grant, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address mathematical problems in the research field of algebraic topology, inspired by the theory of topological defects in soft materials.
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  New responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells have high efficiency, generate low levels of emissions, and can consume renewable sources, in combination with energy vectors, making them excellent candidates as for alternative power production technologies.
  Process models for Portland cement manufacturing
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cement is the most ubiquitous product after drinking water, with 4.1B tons produced in 2017 alone, enough for half a ton per person per year worldwide.
  Thermally superconducting and superinsulating nanofluids and their use in nanodevices
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology is the forefront of a new industrial revolution. As the scale of new devices shrink, the design bottle-neck becomes getting rid of waste heat.
  Developing graphene-reinforced aluminium based nanocomposites through heavy shear deformation
  Dr A Abdelkader
Application Deadline: 8 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The unique set of properties exhibited by 2D materials suggested significant enhancements over traditional fillers in many composites.
  Confined epitaxial growth of InP on silicon for advanced photonic structures
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr Q Li, Dr D Wallis
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the widespread use of mobile devices, the level of data traffic in the world is going up very quickly.
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
  Index-near-zero-embedded optical resonators
  Dr M Ferrera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical cavities (nanoantennas, micro-ring resonators, Fabry-Perot nanocavities, etc.) immersed in an index-near-zero environment will be modelled, fabricated, and characterised.
  Ultra-nonlinear epsilon-near-zero flat optics
  Dr M Ferrera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design and characterisation of different artificial materials for the design of ultra-fast tuneable photonics devices. Giant epsilon-near-zero nonlinearities are targeted to allow subwavelength manipulation of light in both classic and quantum regime.
  Intertwined order in correlated quantum systems
  Dr D Lee, Dr A Ho
Application Deadline: 16 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

What happens when different kinds of order occur at the same time in the same material? This basic question builds on a long line of studies in trying to understand the structure of matter, which has always been a key goal in physics.
  Funded PhD place in experimental quantum and low temperature physics
  Dr E Laird
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lancaster University invites applications for funded PhD positions starting in October 2020, working in the fields of quantum and low temperature physics.
  Long wavelength (>1400 nm) GaSb quantum ring VCSELs for consumer applications
  Prof M Hayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs) are high-speed, compact (low cost) laser diodes used in laser printing, datacoms and other applications.
