1. Fully Funded PhD Position in Geospatial Engineering

Summary of PhD Program:

One of the processes that challenge this assumption is related to crustal deformation due to fluctuations in terrestrial water storage. The seasonal exchange of water between the continents and the oceans generates changes in surface loading that causes elastic deformation of the Earth’s surface. This project will focus on using GNSS observations to characterize crustal deformation caused by the redistribution of water mass across a broad range of timescales, and assess how this affects our ability to estimate meaningful secular velocities of the Earth’s crust. This will also improve our understanding of the broad-scale continental hydrological signals.

2. Fully Funded PhD Position in Condensed Matter Physics

Summary of PhD Program:

Theoretical physics plays a central role in understanding diamond, with an increasing focus upon accurate, quantitative computational methods. Such modelling is computational demanding, and this project includes the use of high-performance computing, coding and data analysis. Training in the materials physics, the use of the operating system and application of the software used will be provided; although not essential, previous experience using computational methods and coding would be an advantage. Postgraduate students can also take part in a range of paid teaching activities for which training is provided.

3. Fully Funded PhD Position in Computer Science

Summary of PhD Program:

Autonomous agent systems have the promise to improve our lives with applications ranging from a swarm of drones in mission-critical tasks to sophisticated robots in care homes. To realise this potential, these systems need to be trustworthy (safe to employ by users), transparent (accountable for humans to scrutinise), and self-ware (capable of collaborating with other agents/humans), in particular, under an environment pervaded by uncertainty.

8. Fully Funded PhD Position in Chemical Engineering

Summary of PhD Program:

This research aims to understand how process parameters and initial particle size distribution affect size distribution changes in AFDs, by developing and carrying out drying experiments in a small-scale jacketed vessel, which mimics the AFD process. A population balance model will be developed from the experiments and coupled with differential equations for moisture evaporation and temperature rise throughout the bed, to predict particle size distribution from a given drying operation. Such predictions will be compared to pilot or industrial scale results.

9. Fully Funded PhD Position in Bayesian computational statistics

Summary of PhD Program:

In Bayesian inference, the posterior distributions often exhibit a multi-modal characteristic. It is a challenging problem to draw random realisations from such multimodal posteriors via traditional Monte Carlo methods, such as Markov chain Monte Carlo (MCMC) which could get stuck in a local mode of the posterior. To tackle this challenge, methods based on ‘mode jumping’ or ‘space augmentation’ have been proposed in the literature.

11. Fully Funded PhD Position in Archaeology: Windows into Ancient Recycling at Fishbourne Roman Palace

Summary of PhD Program:

The luxury and everyday glass from the Roman Palace at Fishbourne will for the first time be fully catalogued and published, with a particular focus upon the site’s exceptional collection of early window glass. This will address a pressing conundrum – the scale and nature of Roman recycling, and its impact upon our understanding of the economy – via a tailored ‘round-robin’ of techniques, from chemical analysis to experimental reconstruction. Key transferable skills will be developed in examining this assemblage of manageable size yet major potential, addressing the question: are windows the missing pieces to the puzzle of Roman glass recycling?

12. Fully Funded PhD Position in Animal Reproduction

Summary of PhD Program:

In this project a bovine in vitro embryo production model will be used to develop a post-hatching model of embryo development and biopsy procedures in preimplantation embryos. These techniques will be critical for future experiments investigating embryo toxicology and for the identification of biomarkers of embryo viability. Our goal is to minimise losses in animal production systems using advance breeding techniques, which has a knock-on effect of improving livestock animal welfare and environmental sustainability.

15. Fully Funded PhD Position in Molecular Microbiology

Summary of PhD Program:

ExPEC encode an arsenal of virulence determinants and clinical isolates are often resistant to multiple antibiotics. The bloodstream triggers unique gene expression patterns in ExPEC, but how these complex pathways are regulated to promote infection, resist drugs and evade host defences remains unknown. This project therefore aims to identify the genetic regulatory pathways and underlying molecular basis of BSI.

16. Fully Funded PhD Position in molecular transport at confined interfaces

Summary of PhD Program:

The exploration of molecular transport at small scales is less studied compared to its electronic transport counterpart. However, a remarkable progress has been made in the last decade in creating nanometer-sized artificial capillaries, giving rise to new research frontiers, notably in nanofluidics. Now is the opportune moment to transcend traditional molecular transport measurements and pioneer contemporary experiments to probe and elucidate the physics of molecular transport. Therefore, this PhD project involves creating confined interfaces and investigate physics of static and dynamic molecules. The student will gain expertise in cleanroom activities including electron microscopy, lithography, and electrical measurements. Additionally, certain aspects of the project may involve electrokinetic and spectroscopic measurements.

17. Fully Funded PhD Position in Astrophysics: Magnetism in hot Jupiters

Summary of PhD Program:

Hot Jupiters are Jupiter like planets very close to their host stars. They are hot enough that much of their atmospheres are ionised which allows magnetic fields, generated in their deep interiors, to be coupled to their atmospheric dynamics. This coupling can lead to variation in atmospheric winds, Ohmic heating which could “inflate” the planet and atmospheric dynamos. All of these behaviours can be observed to help us understand hot Jupiter atmospheres and evolution. Yet, much of this rich dynamics has yet to be explored. This project will use primarily multi-dimensional numerical simulations, in conjunction with observational constraints to investigate the effects of magnetism on hot Jupiters.

32. Fully Funded PhD Position in Psychology 

Summary of PhD Program:

Accelerating global urbanisation is having significant detrimental impacts on human and non-human species and environments. This is an intellectual and practical challenge in cities globally as governments struggle to meet the needs of growing populations with increasing demands on natural resources. Suites of concepts for environmental policy have been embraced by the planning profession to promote sustainable cities. However, most approaches have fault-lines: they separate ‘humans’ from ‘nature’ thus failing to account for mutual interdependence, and view land as a commodity to be owned and exploited, failing to recognise it as a vital resource for ecosystems and communities to flourish together.

Application Deadline: 9th January 2024
