  A new quantum theoretical approach to predict new room temperature superconductors and rewrite our understandingof deep carbon storage in the Earth’s mantle
  Dr C Weber
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years progress has been made on developing density functional theory (DFT) approaches to equation of state calculation,.
  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.
  Quantum effects in high-intensity laser-driven plasma and novel searches for dark matter
  Dr D Burton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The new generation of high-intensity laser facilities is expected to provide a new avenue for probing quantum electrodynamics in parameters ranges that are currently inaccessible to high-energy colliders.
  Adding a New Layer to Biophysics
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, there has been an explosion in applying liquid crystal theory to biological systems. Dense suspensions of swimming microbes, cytoskeletal components, fibrous tissues and bacterial colonies all exhibit properties associated with nematic liquid crystals.
  Controlling the emergent dynamical phenomena in neural circuits engineered in vitro
  Dr N Janson, Dr A Balanov, Dr P Roach
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will be dedicated to mathematical modelling of the collective dynamics in complex living neural networks engineered in vitro.
  Fractal structures in multidimensional chemical reaction dynamics
  Dr T Bartsch
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In many chemical reactions the reaction rate is determined by the crossing of an energy barrier. In order to predict whether a reaction will occur, one must understand the dynamics of the crossing in as much detail as possible.
  Microbial Micro-Engineers
  Dr M Mazza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms occupy every crevice within global ecosystems and impact all aspects of life. However, too little is understood about their movement within physical crannies, and how they can restructure these microspaces for their own benefit.
  Quantum Field Theory Applied to Nanotechnology
  Prof C Eberlein
Application Deadline: 22 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Claudia Eberlein. Properties of quantum systems, like the energy levels of an atom, depend on the interaction with the quantized electromagnetic field.
  What’s the Matter with Walruses?
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Walruses, the tusked and massive marine mammals, spend much of their time resting on polar sea ice, but when that ice recedes in the summer months, they must find shore.
  PhD Studentship in Mechanical Engineering - Novel Subsurface Inspection Radar to Inspect Tunnels and Tunnels Linings for improved maintenance
  Prof M Robinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. April 2020 for 3 years. Overview. The PhD study is to prepare for commercialisation and demonstration of a novel, portable radar system that provides a simple non-invasive mechanism for inspecting tunnel infrastructure.
  Complex network analysis and resilience in large-scale multi-layer networks (Application Ref: SF19/EE/CIS/SHANG)
  Dr Y Shang, Prof A Bouridane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to investigate and develop new data science approaches to model large-scale networks.
  Beam-beam and crab cavity proton dynamics for the LHC luminosity upgrade
  Dr R Appleby
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD project, starting October 2020. The luminosity upgrade of the Large Hadron Collider will increase the delivered instantaneous luminosity by an order of magnitude to search for new, rare, particles and perform precision measurements of the standard model of particle physics.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
  Deep Learning for Temporal Information Processing
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Temporal information process covers a broad class of learning problems where knowledge can be acquired from data of a sequential order, e.g.
  Information Component Analysis via Deep Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As their prominent characteristics, perceptual data often convey the mixing information, which often results in the inadequate performance for a specific perceptual information processing task due to the interference of irrelevant information components.
