  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Controlling Microstructure of Metal and Polymer Aerogels via Advanced Templating Approaches
  Dr R Menzel
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aerogels are highly-porous, nanostructured materials with great potential in advanced technologies including energy generation, (electro)catalysis, and sensing.
  Identification of mlm receptor antagonists for treatment of cancer
  Dr R Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent high impact publications have identified antagonism of the mlm receptor as a possible target for treatment of cancer. The native ligand of the receptor has been linked to cell proliferation which has been proven to be as a result of increased nitric oxide (NO) concentration.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) offers a four year programme that combines an integrated MSc (completed over the first two years) paired with a three year PhD-level research programme.
  Control of Magnetically-driven Soft Continuum Robots
  Prof P Valdastri, Prof R Harris
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetically-driven Soft Robots are of increasing interest due to the range of new transformative applications they may enable. Within these are continuum robots which are of particular focus due to their potential to be used within the body to perform diagnostics and treatments.
  Design and control of magnetic soft robot for surgical applications
  Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This vacancy is created by a major European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to the STORM Lab, which aims to define a new generation of surgical tentacle-like robots that can be magnetically guided within the human body by magnetic fields.
  Reducing risk of hip fracture in women using data linkage.
  Prof J E Cade
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dietary risk factors for hip fracture using the UK Women’s Cohort Study (UKWCS) is the project focus. The UKWCS has followed ~35,000 women for >20 years and is one of the largest and longest follow up studies of women with detailed dietary information.
  Metadata integration in Networks analysis with unobserved edges
  Dr L Cutillo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Networks arise naturally in many areas of life; supermarkets use networks of customers to propose specific deals to targeted groups; banks orchestrate a…
  Plague hazard assessment toolset
  Prof C Molina-París, Prof G Lythe, Dr M Lopez-Garcia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pathogen of interest in this project is Yersinia pestis, a gram-negative bacterium and the causative agent of plague, a disease of humans and mammals which has been recognised since antiquity.
  Pricing and hedging in non-linear financial market models
  Dr M Grigorova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Contemporary mathematical finance, especially in the aftermath of the financial crisis of 2007-2008, faces important challenges which include better taking into account of various market imperfections, thorough understanding of default risk, studying complex strategic interactions between agents, to name a few.
  Tidal flows in extrasolar planets and stars
  Dr A Barker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since 1995 astronomers have discovered and partially characterised several thousand extrasolar planets. Many of these planets have masses similar to Jupiter’s, and orbit their host stars in only a few Earth days -- a fascinating class of planets that we refer to as hot Jupiters.
  Developing an Imaging-Diffraction Method for Corrosion and Steel Degradation Studies
  Dr A Matamoras Veloza, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project provides an excellent opportunity for doctoral training on corrosion and steel degradation as part of a collaborative work between the School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds and ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility, at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford.
  Fabrication of Magnetically-driven Soft Continuum Robots
  Prof R Harris, Prof P Valdastri
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

Magnetically-driven Soft Robots are of increasing interest due to the range of new transformative applications they may enable. Within these are continuum robots which are of particular focus due to their potential to be used within the body to perform diagnostics and treatments.
  Functional Evaluation of the Meniscus and Meniscus Replacement using MRI
  Dr R K Wilcox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this PhD study is to develop new methods for examining the human knee joint under load using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  The Effectiveness of Esters in Cooling and Lubricating Transmission Systems in Electric Vehicles-Dielectric Fluids
  Dr S Kosarieh, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy conservation and emissions reduction have become increasingly significant for automobiles due to high energy demand, fuel economy and environmental concerns.
