  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.
  International Cotutelle PhD project: Self-diffusion in iron alloys at extreme conditions
  Dr O Lord, Prof S Clark
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project gives the candidate the opportunity to perform experimental research into the structure and chemistry of planetary interiors at two world class institutions, the University of Bristol (UK) and Macquarie University (Sydney Australia).
  PhD Studentship in Creating New Glass-Based Metal-Organic Framework Materials
  Dr T Bennett, Prof D A Keen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Start Date. October 2020 / January 2021 / October 2021. Supervisory Team. Dr. Thomas D. Bennett, Prof. David. A. Keen. A fully funded, 3.5 year studentship is available in the Hybrid Materials group, in the Materials Science and Metallurgy Department, University of Cambridge.
  Electron Microscopy and Tomography of Ion Irradiation Effects on Nano-Structures
  Dr J Hinks, Prof S Donnelly
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to study the modifications that occur when nanostructures (such as spheres, rods and wires) are irradiated with energetic ions.
  Experimental and Theoretical Understanding of Rhenium Precipitation in Tungsten for Nuclear Fusion Applications
  Dr J Hinks, Dr M Molinari
Application Deadline: 26 June 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.
  Long-term behaviour of nuclear wasteforms under geological disposal conditions
  Dr AH Mir
Application Deadline: 26 June 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.
  Enhancing graphene-based sensors with metal-organic nanosheets, 3.5 years PhD studentship, Oct 2020 start
  Dr A Chauvet, Dr J Foster
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in using cutting edge two-dimensional materials and advanced spectroscopic techniques to create new sensors?.
  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’.
  Chalcogenide and Heavy Metal Oxide based waveguide devices for on-chip Mid-IR spectrometer
  Dr S Ganapathy, Prof J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

University of Southampton - Optoelectronics Research Centre. The Optoelectronics Research Centre has a 40-year track record of pioneering contributions in photonics and is currently one of the largest and most dynamic research centres in this field world-wide.
  Instant-on solid oxide cells for hydrogen production and power generation
  Dr D Neagu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

If humanity were to replace fossil fuels, it would need to find a way to store vast amounts of renewable energy cheaply for use when the sun is not shining or when the winds are still.
  Tuning materials from within: growing endo/exo-particles for energy conversion devices
  Dr D Neagu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to disperse nanoparticles on the surface of materials has revolutionised surface science and catalysis, speeding up a wide range of chemical reactions of great practical importance.
