  Photochemical Pathways of Photoinitiators: a Study for Inkjet Applications and Beyond
  Dr J N Moore, Prof S Duckett
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will explore the mode of action of the latest generation of organic photoinitiators used in industrial UV inkjet printing and beyond.
  Dstl Research PhD Studentship: Resilient, ultra-dense mesh networks for infrastructureless communications
  Research Group: Communication Technologies
  Prof A Burr
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are many situations in which high rate, reliable wireless communications are crucial but where the necessary infrastructure (base stations, etc) is either unavailable, non-existent or damaged.
  Defects and stress in 2D light-emitting materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional materials “beyond graphene”, including transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and 2D layers of pure elements, like phosphorus, have shown some exceptional properties.
  From Big Bang nucleosynthesis to medical science: advanced electronic signal analysis for extreme-light experiments in nuclear science.
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr C Diget, Dr C Matei
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Extreme-Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) is currently under construction in Bucharest, Romania.
  First principles modelling of defects in solar absorber materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of materials are emerging as promising candidates to replace silicon in the next generation of solar cells. They offer the prospect of high efficiency, low cost and flexibility allowing for their incorporation into building materials for example.
  2D materials for bio- and chemical- sensing applications
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene and graphene-like two dimensional (2D) materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and transition metal oxides (TMOs), have attracted great attention for a wide variety of biosensing technologies in recent years.
  Modelling the properties of electron and hole polarons in materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strong coupling between electrons and phonons in some materials leads to the formation of small polarons (quasiparticles comprised of a localised electron and an associated polarisation field).
  Plasma-Enhanced Pulsed Laser Deposition of metal-oxynitride thin films for photoelectrochemical water splitting to enable a hydrogen economy.
  Research Group: York Plasma Institute
  Dr E Wagenaars
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hydrogen economy, the use of hydrogen as a clean fuel, is under development as a part of the future low-carbon economy. An important part of this is the efficient and cheap production of hydrogen.
  Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our Department of Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media offers innovative research degrees, teaching from industry professionals and a vibrant creative community.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for improved targeted delivery of growth factors
  Dr V Chechik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can be heated by applying oscillating magnetic field. MNPs can hence be used to thermally destroy biological tissue (e.g., cancer cells) by remote magnetic activation.
  Developing dual-mode therapeutic systems to attack cancer tumours
  Prof D K Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a challenging disease target, requiring wide-ranging strategies for intervention. Given the difficulties in treating recalcitrant tumours, multi-mode therapies are of significant potential value.
  How the chemistry used to attach proteins to biomaterial surfaces influences how cells grow
  Dr C Spicer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The use of synthetic materials as scaffolds for growing cells and tissues is a key concept in tissue engineering. Tissues grown in the lab could potentially be used to repair damage in vivo for the treatment of disease.
  Redox-active twistacenes: putting new twists on pi-electron acceptor design
  Dr A-J Avestro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Avestro Group seeks a talented and motivated PhD student to carry out a 3-year research project on the development of a new class of functional organic materials based on twisted π-conjugated polyaromatics.
  Dyes and Liquid Crystals: Molecular Designs for Guest-Host Applications
  Dr J N Moore, Dr S Cowling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A variety of devices for colour and monochrome displays can be obtained by incorporating a dye as a guest in a liquid crystalline (LC) host, providing a flexible route to light-scattering devices that can operate in strong ambient light, including outdoors.
  Thermally Activated Delayed Fluorescence for application in Organic Light-emitting Diodes displays
  Prof D W Bruce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic Light-emitting Diodes (OLEDs) have moved quickly from basic design concept to commercial displays and have gained popularity on the basis of the image quality possible, due in part to the better blacks than are possible with liquid crystal displays (LCDs).
