University of Leeds PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 126 University of Leeds PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

Space-based constraints on UK ammonia emissions and air quality impacts

We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity, in the School of Earth and Environment, to undertake novel research targeting one of the major air quality challenges facing the UK – the ammonia problem! Ammonia (NH3) is emitted primarily from diffuse agricultural sources and difficult to quantify for legislative purposes. Read more

Investigating a novel exercise intervention in peripheral artery disease

This funded PhD project will be based in the Vascular Physiology Laboratory within the School of Biomedical Sciences. It aims to investigate a novel exercise intervention to improve vascular and functional outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease. Read more

Using super-resolution Imaging to image living cells in 3D

  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
Our lab at the University of Leeds is looking for a PhD student with a strong interest in super-resolution imaging, and in imaging live cells, and to participate in a European Doctoral Network as a UKRI Guarantee Doctoral Network Student Researcher. Read more

Modelling of precipitation reactors in the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
Nuclear power generation is expected to rise to meet increasing UK and global energy demand, whilst maintaining net-zero targets. Read more

An investigation on the tribochemical surface interactions of molten salt reactors

  Research Group: School of Mechanical Engineering
Materials challenges have always been critical for delivering low-carbon energy towards the UK’s goal to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Read more

Developing a digital twin for validation of packing optimisers used for nuclear decommissioning

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
When sorting and packing nuclear waste items, the current practice typically involves human operators wearing full PPEs and/or remotely controlled robotic arms. Read more

Modular intensified ion exchange utilising agitated tubular reactors

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
As the UK prepares to invest in new nuclear power plants, industry and research organisations are also looking towards developing the next generation of effluent and waste treatment processes. Read more

Preparing Corroded Magnox Fuel Waste for Long Term Storage: Rheology Mapping of Complex Fluids

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The UK’s nuclear sector is actively undertaking substantial decommissioning projects of its legacy facilities. One key challenge is the safe recovery and processing of waste for long term storage. Read more

Investigating porosity changes and stress mechanics of corroding nuclear wastes under confined expansion

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
As the UK prepares to invest in new operational nuclear power plants, industry and research organisations are also looking to decommission the UK’s existing nuclear legacy facilities. Read more

Collaborative Intelligent Computing Services in Integrated space-air-terrestrial Networks

  Research Group: School of Computing
With the advent of 6G, the proliferation of connected devices continues its exponential growth, spanning diverse applications such as IoT devices, video streaming platforms, surveillance cameras, and AR/VR, among others. Read more

Active Control of Topological Devices for Quantum Integration

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
Topological Insulators (TIs) are materials that possess a topological surface state (TSS). This surface state allows for low-loss electrical transport, integration of spin/electrical/optical signals and the formation of bound Majorana states for topological quantum computation. Read more

Defects, Disorder and Dynamics in Topological Insulators and the Implications for Functional Next Generation Quantum Devices

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Topological insulators (TIs) are an emerging class of materials that are generating considerable interest worldwide with potential for many device applications as part of next generation quantum technologies. Read more

Identifying quantum advantage via tensor networks

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Rapid technological progress has ushered in the era of quantum computers and, with them, the race for quantum advantage. However, identifying problems for which quantum devices can show true advantage over classical ones can be non-trivial. Read more

Quantum Key Distribution at Terahertz Frequencies

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The possibility of developing quantum computing machines that can break the widely used public key cryptosystems has required us to look into new solutions for scenarios where long-term data security is needed. Read more
