Winton PhD Studentships Physics of Sustainability x 10 (Fixed Term)

Department of Physics
Closes: 
Tuesday, 3 December, 2019

Advances in fundamental physics have the potential to address the demands of a growing population and strained natural resources. The Winton Programme for the Physics of Sustainability will support outstanding people with the radical ideas that will bring practical solutions to these problems. The research will be primarily in the Physics department with interdisciplinary activities with other departments in the university encouraged to explore new directions in basic science.

EPSRC iCASE Studentship- Making decisions within complex systems

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Sunday, 15 March, 2020

Many decisions made within organisations are linked, yet the information governing such links is often scarce. A simple model of agents, decisions and consequences has been developed with BT as a foundation for investigating the utility of probabilistic networks in predicting the connectedness of decisions. There is a need to develop the model further and investigate a range of algorithmic approaches to estimating such connectedness, looking at the trade-offs between model complexity, model build cost and the validity of its predictive ability.

EPSRC DTP Studentship - In-Flight Measurement of Nanoparticle Surface Area and Volume

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Sunday, 15 March, 2020

The measurement of nanoparticle size and morphology is crucial for climate, health, and engineered nanomaterials. Unfortunately, the ability to measure the surface area and volume of particles is extremely limited with no techniques allowing for real time measurement. This project seeks to develop a new device that allows for measurement of particle volume and surface area in real time, allowing for broad applications in the field of emissions, pollution, pharmacueticals, nanotechnology.

EPSRC DTP Studentship - Modelling of composite fabric processing

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Sunday, 15 December, 2019

The overall goal is to provide simulation and design tools, which will enable industry to design and manufacture composite components from textile preforms more efficiently. The project will focus on double-diaphragm forming of dry non-crimp fabrics (NCFs), guided by the priorities of our industrial partners. The aim of the project is to develop experimental and analysis tools to predict wrinkle formation in NCF components and incorporate that into a design methodology.

EPSRC DTP Studentship - Cyclic Loading Effects of Rock Scour Protection for Offshore Wind Applications

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Friday, 31 January, 2020

Offshore wind (OW) plays an important role in the transition to low carbon energy supply, and has enormous potential for providing renewable energy across the globe, with projects starting to be developed in East Asia and the USA. The majority of foundations built for offshore wind consists of steel monopiles of up to 10 m in diameter. The use of rock protection to protect seabed mounted offshore foundations from scouring is growing. Loose rock protection is currently the primary method used to protect offshore foundations.
