Biocultural Restoration of Kenyan Ecosystems

Restoration of degraded ecosystems is a predominant component of the environmental agenda. However, uncertainty on how methods of ecosystem restoration can also meet social needs still remains unclear. Read more

Reconfigurable tensorial impedance surfaces for modulating RF scattering and antenna function (enhanced stipend) Ref: 5053

Project Description. It is the focus of this project to design, model, fabricate and characterise active 2D metasurfaces that demonstrate a reconfigurable tensorial surface impedance [1-3] to enable temporal modulation of the amplitude, frequency, phase, directionality, or polarisation state of RF/mm-wave radiation. Read more

Magnetoelectric material based miniaturized and multifunctional antennas (enhanced stipend) Ref: 5052

Project Description. The main hurdle in advancing antenna technology is the issue of miniaturization. Traditional antenna’s function based on electromagnetic (EM) wave resonance and their size is typically larger than one tenth of the EM wavelength, λo. Read more

Fully Funded Studentships in Engineering and Physical Sciences Research

EPSRC funds studentships to provide the next generation of skilled individuals in the Engineering and Physical Science. The University of Kent is delighted to offer four fully funded EPSRC studentships starting in September 2024. Read more

Development of a new class of biosensors with unique capabilities

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
The sensor industry sees great promise in whole-cell-based biosensors, but because it relies on silicon-based microelectronics it requires biosensors with electrogenic outputs. Read more

PhD Studentship: Lawn grass microbial fuel cells for widespread energy harvesting - ENG 1738

The University of Nottingham is offering a fully funded 42-month UK-based PhD studentship as part of the Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant, focusing on "Lawn grass microbial fuel cells for widespread energy harvesting." Supervised by Dr. Read more

The effect of General Relativity on super-Eddington accretion

Supervisory Team:  Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. Compact objects (neutron stars and black holes) can accrete material through a disc which is bright across the EM spectrum. Read more

Resolving the unresolvable: using lenses to map accretion onto black holes and neutron stars

Supervisory Team: Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. White dwarfs located in the halo of Andromeda (M31) are expected to lens some of the 100s of X-ray bright, accreting compact objects (black holes and neutron stars) located in that galaxy. Read more

Hidden black holes and the search for self-lensing binaries

Supervisory Team: Dr Matthew Middleton. Project description. Binary systems containing high mass stars evolve through a number of stages, and in many cases can appear as a black hole or neutron star orbiting at a large distance from a ‘normal’ companion star. Read more

PhD Studentship: Quantum light to see the invisible at nanoscale

A PhD studentship is available at the intersection of quantum optics, nanophotonics, plasmonics and molecular spectroscopy. How to confine, control and manipulate light at atomic scales has been an area of immense fundamental and technological interest. Read more
