1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Mechanisms of Interoception and Stress in Medically Unexplained Symptoms

Summary of PhD Program:

The overall aim of this project is to investigate mechanisms of MUS by means of multimodal data, by combining MRI, EEG and ECG, and behavioural paradigms which will aim to explore Interoceptive mechanisms and attentional biases. We will use an ’emotional stress induction’ procedure, to explore Interoception, central brain networks and attentional bias before and during emotional stress.The PhD student will play a crucial role in conducting in-depth research on the interplay between mind and body in conditions like Medically Unexplained Symptoms.

2. Fully Funded PhD Position in Experimental Particle Physics

Summary of PhD Program:

CMS group makes a significant contribution to the study of top quark production in proton-proton collisions using CMS data. The group also plays an active role in the maintenance, operation and upgrading of the Silicon Tracker, having contributed to the construction and commissioning of this detector and the current end cap electromagnetic calorimeter. We are looking to recruit a student to study the production of the top quark in both Standard Model and Beyond the Standard Model scenarios using CMS data from Run 2 & 3 and to contribute to activities related to the upgrade of the current CMS tracking detector. Successful applicants will also contribute to detector performance studies. A period of long-term attachment at CERN is associated with the CMS studentship.

3. Fully Funded PhD Position in Advancing Aluminium Extrusion for Side Sill Structures

Summary of PhD Program:

This research project will be in the area of production and manufacturing engineering, with a focus on digitalisation of aluminium extrusion. The aim is to bridge the gap in digitalisation of the extrusion process of 6xxx series aluminium alloys for targeted automotive applications. This will be pursued by developing and implementing integrated process modelling techniques and digital process control, while considering energy efficiency and economic analysis of digitalisation. The project will be part of the activities of the Constellium University Technology Centre (UTC) at Brunel and will be aligned with the objectives of the Materials Made Smarter Research Centre (MMSRC) in delivering multidisciplinary research in the area of Digital Manufacturing.

4. Fully Funded PhD Position in Development of high performance and highly impurity-tolerant recycled Al alloys

Summary of PhD Program:

Aluminium recycling saves up to 95% energy and reduce 95% greenhouse gas emission compared to the primary aluminium production, therefore plays an important role in delivering Net Zero. The traditional Al recycling process requires large investment on the scrap Al sorting, and the extra cost in adding alloying elements and removing unwanted alloying elements to meet the customers specifications. Impurities is one of the biggest challenges for Al recycling. This project is aiming to develop the high impurity-tolerance and high-performance recycled Al alloys. This project includes both fundamental understanding and the technique development.

5. Fully Funded PhD Position in Precipitation hardening by Fe-containing phases in recycled aluminium alloys

Summary of PhD Program:

In this project you will develop a framework for the design of Al alloys with Fe-containing hardening phases, which may potentially open the route for the new class of Al alloys made with recycled feedstock. The research will include thermodynamic modelling, making the alloys, their testing and characterisation using most advanced facilities available at BCAST (TEM, HRTEM/HAADF, APM etc.). You will receive a multi-faceted training and should demonstrate the ability to learn, take initiative, adapt, and interact with the team members.

6. Fully Funded PhD Position in Nanoscale chemical characterisation of high strength Al-6XXX produced with recycled aluminium

Summary of PhD Program:

The use of recycled aluminium is important for reducing CO2 emissions and moving towards a circular economy. It also presents challenges and opportunities arising from the distribution of other elements contained in the recycled aluminium. This project will focus on characterising the distribution of elements arising from using recycled aluminium. The successful applicant will utilise the newly installed LEAPTM 5000 to collect atom probe tomography data to reveal the 3D nano-scale chemical distribution in matrix and secondary phases, as well as at interfaces between these phases. The project will also provide the opportunity to use complementary techniques, including transmission electron microscopy and focussed ion-beam techniques.

7. Fully Funded PhD Position in Understanding the role of alloying additions in the development of high-performance strain-induced precipitation hardenable AA6xxx series aluminium alloys

Summary of PhD Program:

The project is sponsored by Constellium, a global leading manufacturer of high-quality technically advanced aluminium products and systems. Utilizing innovative thermomechanical processing routes and alloying additions, Constellium achieves optimal combinations of strength, ductility, and crack resistance to further reduce vehicle weight. The project aim is to establish a greater understanding of the impact of alloying additions (e.g. Cu, Sn, In etc.) on the natural ageing retardation and precipitation kinetics of AA6xxx Al-alloys and, also, to understand, step-by-step the entire thermomechanical processing through advanced high – resolution TEM investigations.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in automotive aluminium alloys

Summary of PhD Program:

The automotive industry is shifting towards reducing fuel consumption and emissions. Constellium’s 6XXX series aluminium alloys, play a vital role in creating lighter, safer, and more fuel-efficient vehicles, especially for structural and safety components in battery electric vehicles (BEVs). To meet the requirements of these applications, Aluminium alloys must also ensure high strength and crashworthiness. The main objective of this research project is to utilize the Gleeble thermomechanical simulation system to optimize processing parameters for controlling the microstructure and texture of aluminium alloys, with the goal of achieving both enhanced crash performance and high strength.

9. Fully Funded PhD Position in development of manufacturing-induced property enhanced AA6xxx series Aluminium Alloys

Summary of PhD Program:

This project is in partnership with Constellium who are leading the way in lightweighting the future generations of sustainable vehicles by the development of high strength AA6xxx series aluminium extrusion alloys, with tensile yield strength (Rp0.2) above 400MPa and >10% elongation. Innovative thermomechanical processing routes have been developed to achieve the best combinations of strength, ductility and crack resistance and further reduce weight. The process involves a pre-aging step carried out after extrusion and quenching followed by a plastic deformation processing step and subsequently a post-deformation artificial ageing. The deformation process increases dislocation density by interaction with the precipitates formed during pre-ageing.
