PhD Studentship - Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies

Title: Interfacing Scientific Data and Complex Policy

Value: The studentship covers full tuition fees and a standard annual stipend at the RCUK rate (£14,296 for 2016/17) for 3 years.

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

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 1 September 2016 (12 noon GMT).

This is a PhD studentship in Interdisciplinary Studies for students seeking to make interdisciplinarity and methodological innovation central elements of their doctoral research. The studentship is linked to the UK’s Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN), a new multi-disciplinary research centre funded by the ESRC and NERC in collaboration with Defra, DECC, the Environment Agency and the Food Standards Agency. CECAN aims to enable more effective policy-making through enhancing the development and application of policy evaluation approaches that can address complexity across the Energy Environment Food nexus; and the capacity of policy-makers, evaluation practitioners and researchers to understand and use these methods.

PhD Studentship - Warwick Manufacturing Group and Physics Department

Title: Optimisation of Production and Performance of Diamond-like Coatings for Automotive Applications

Value: The studentship includes a tax-free stipend at the national minimum set by EPSRC (£14,296 per annum for 2016-17) and full tuition fees will be paid for UK/EU nationals for up to 4 years.

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

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 16 September 2016 for a start on 26 September 2016.

This studentship (comprising a 1 year MSc and 3 year PhD training programme) will be undertaken in WMG at the University of Warwick as part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Diamond Science and Technology.

Diamond-like coatings (DLCs) provide a wear-resistant solid lubricant with a low coefficient of friction and are used in a wide range of applications. The deposition process and conditions play a critical role in determining the performance of the coating. These coatings are manufactured commercially but as new applications, particularly high demand automotive, are explored there is a need for further understanding of the relationship between processing parameters and performance. Coatings produced in partnership with the industrial sponsor Miba (http://www.miba.com) will be evaluated using a variety of complementary experimental techniques. The project will correlate the attributes of the coating (internal stress, defect types and density, doping, surface characteristics) to the tribological performance.

For further details can be found on the link provided or alternatively contact Professor Barbara Shollock (b.shollock@warwick.ac.uk) for further information on of the project and details of how to apply for this position.

PhD Studentship - EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Diamond Science and Technology, Department of Physics

Title: First Principles Modelling of the Excited State and Simulated Spectroscopy

Value: The studentship includes full tuition fees at Home/EU rate and a standard annual stipend at the RCUK rate of £14,296 for 2016/17 for 4 years.

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

Deadline: This is flexible with the project available to start on 26 September 2016.

1 year taught MSc at the University of Warwick followed by 3 years PhD based at the University of Newcastle under the supervision of Dr Jon Goss and Professor Patrick Briddon.

One of the key challenges in the quantum-mechanical simulation of condensed matter systems lies in a well-documented short-coming of density functional theory. However, it remains a crucial aspect of quantum-chemical simulations that directly comparable data must be available between the theory and experiment, and that this data should be as quantitatively accurate as possible. Over recent years, the calculation of key observables including electrical levels, vibrational quanta and hyperfine interaction tensors have been key to the unambiguous identification of point defect structures, with aspects such as stress coefficients and isotopic shifts being of particular importance.

Lithium batteries are multi-material, multi-component systems where it is difficult to separate and recover materials of value at the end of life. As such, only a small percentage of these batteries are recycled and the rest are sent to landfill. This is a lost economic opportunity and a growing source of waste in the UK. The aim of this project is to develop a molten salt method of recovering materials of value from batteries.
