PhD Studentship - Warwick Manufacturing Group

Title: Understanding Parent / Child Interactions and Family Mealtimes in the Context of Clinically Obese Patients

Value: The studentship covers full tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and a standard stipend of (£14,254 at the 2016/17 rate per annum) for three years.

Eligibility: This funding is available to UK/EU students.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible for a start date of October 2016.

This PhD provides an exciting opportunity to be involved in research to determine the role of parent/child feeding practices and family mealtimes in understanding obese parent and child eating behaviour.

This is a unique, interdisciplinary project combining developmental, clinical, and health psychology with medical science. The successful candidate will be located at WMG, University of Warwick, but will also be part of the Warwickshire Institute for the Study of Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism (WISDEM), University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust (UHCW). The full scope of the work will be determined in the initial stages of the project.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Theory and simulation of phonon transport at the nanoscale

Value: The studentship covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (£4,109 at the 2016/17 rate) and standard stipend (£14,254 at the 2016/17 rate) per annum for three years.

Eligibility: This funding is available to UK/EU students.

Deadline: The closing date for receipt of applications is 30 June 2016.

The goal of this PhD project is to understand phonon transport in nanostructured and low-dimensional materials by exploring both their particle and wave nature through theory and (large-scale) simulations. A variety of theoretical models and simulation approaches will be developed and used to describe phonon transport, spanning from employing the simplified Callaway model, to the particle based Monte Carlo approach, and to the wave based Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function approach. Each model explores a different phonon transport regime and different phenomena. The unified phonon transport computational framework that will developed during the project will provide understanding to a large variety of open problems related to nanoscale heat transfer. This PhD project will be aligned with a larger effort to understand electrothermal properties at the nanoscale that will be initiated within a European Research Council funded project.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Computational Design of Nanomaterials

Value: The studentship covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (£4,109 at the 2016/17 rate) and standard stipend (£14,254 at the 2016/17 rate) per annum for three years.

Eligibility: This funding is available to UK/EU students.

Deadline: The closing date for receipt of applications is 30 June 2016.

This project provides a unique opportunity to perform theoretical research through the use of atomistic and quantum mechanical computational methods, to explore the optimal design of material properties at the nanoscale. It will provide the opportunity to the student to use and develop advanced theoretical methods and computational tools that can be used for the design of new nanomaterials, guide the works of experimentalists, and open the path for new and exciting applications. This PhD project will be aligned with a larger effort to understand electrothermal properties at the nanoscale that will be initiated within a European Research Council (ERC) funded project.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Wide Bandgap Semiconductor Materials for High Voltage Power Electronics

Value: The studentship covers full tuition fees at the UK/EU rate and standard stipend of £14,254 (2016-2017) per annum for three years.

Eligibility: This funding is available to UK/EU students.

Deadline: The closing date for receipt of applications is 1st July 2016.

This project will work alongside an industrially-led Technology Strategy Board (TSB) sponsored project entitled “Silicon Carbide power electronics: The route to Energy Resilience (SiCER)”. It aims to address technical barriers that effect commercial power electronics that are typically used in hybrid / electric vehicles and renewable energy systems. It will provide a unique opportunity for the PhD student to engage with external industrial specialists from varying industrial sectors and gain working experience in the highly regarded power electronics group at the University of Warwick.

PhD Studentship - Warwick Medical School

Title: EPSRC CASE Bioinformatics Studentship : Development of novel statistics to study the human microbiome

Value: The studentship includes full tuition fees and the EPSRC stipend (currently £13,863 per annum) and an additional Unilever top-up (£4,000 per annum) for three years.

Eligibility: The award is open to UK/EU students.

Deadline: The closing date for receipt of applications is 1st September 2016

Microbiomics is one of the most exciting areas of current research. New tools, in particular next generation sequencing, have transformed our understanding of the microbial world. We now appreciate that the human microbiome plays a key role in both maintaining health and in preventing disease. It is also central to Unilever’s research, for instance, understanding the response of the skin microbiome to personal care products.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Nanoscale Interfacial Fluid Dynamics

Value: The annual stipend will be £14,254 for 3.5 years with all university fees paid.

Eligibility: This scholarship is available for UK/EU students only (or for non-UK/EU students who can provide the difference in university fees.

Deadline: The start date will be by arrangement in the period 1 April 2016 to 31 December 2016

A consortium of three internationally-leading UK research institutions is offering a fully-funded PhD Scholarship for 3½ years, to develop new modelling capabilities and simulation-for-design tools for Nanoscale Interfacial Fluid Dynamics. This prestigious opportunity is funded by a flagship £3.4M EPSRC Programme Grant awarded to Professor Duncan Lockerby and Dr James Sprittles (University of Warwick), Professor David Emerson (Daresbury Laboratory) and Professor Jason Reese (University of Edinburgh). The PhD students will be integrated into the Programme’s extensive collaborative network of international researchers and nine industrial partners in order to deliver the knowledge required to understand and design next generation nano-engineered flow technologies.
