PhD in Development of Experimentally Validated Numerical Tools for Evaluation of The Response of Masonry Structures Against Flood.

A PhD scholarship in civil engineering is available at The University of Nottingham. This position is available for 3 years. Applicants should apply before November 08, 2019.

The main aim of this project is to develop experimentally validated numerical modeling strategies for evaluating the safety of masonry structures against floods.

With the increasing risk of floods in several countries around the world, it is critical to evaluate the safety of existing structures against this hazard. Masonry structures are particularly vulnerable to tensile and out-of-plane loads and therefore are expected to undergo a severe damage under flood loads. However, the literature on this subject is still limited and there is little fundamental knowledge on the actual forces induced by floods and the performance of masonry against these forces. The aim of this project is to evaluate this vulnerability through combined experimental testing and computational modeling. The results will be used for development of vulnerability analysis and design guidelines for protection of existing masonry structures against floods.

The PhD position is available from 1 December 2019 (earlier start dates will be considered). The studentship covers both tuition fees and a tax-free student stipend at RCUK rates (15,009 per annum) for 2019/20 academic year. Duration is 3 years.

PhD Studentship Artificial Nervous System Distributed Optical Fibre Sensing Systems and Their Applications in Structural Integrity Analysis

University of Southampton is delighted to offer a PhD position in computer science. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 5 years. Applications are welcome before August 31, 2019.

This PhD project aims to open new frontiers in the field of structural health monitoring by designing and developing a new class high resolution distributed optical fibre sensors. Such sensors use an optical fibre to measure physical quantities such as temperature, strain, and vibrations at tens of thousands individual points along the fibre. Hence, by integrating an optical fibre inside any structure, crucial physical properties of such structure can be monitored, and any anomaly can be quickly detected. In other words, the optical fibre plays the role of a nervous system of that structure.

Such technology has the potential to yield a wealth of new applications in areas such as structural health monitoring (SHM) in aircrafts, ships, civil structures, performance analysis of race cars designed for Formula One competition, and medical applications, to name just a few.

A fully funded PhD place on this project is available for Eligible UK applicants supported by an EPSRC Studentship.The project will involve close collaboration with the institute of sound and vibration research (ISVR), one of the world's renowned research institute for its contributions to reducing noise and vibration in engineering applications such as rail and aircraft.

We welcome applications from future experts who have, or expect to shortly have, a very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent), in computer science, electronics, or other closely related subject such as mathematics or physics.

:applications should be received no later than 31 August 2019 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

We accept applications from those who wish to receive a funded scholarship, those who already have a funded scholarship from another source, or self-paying applicants, (proof of funds will be required).

Funding: full tuition plus, for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 18,000 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Candidates should apply as soon as possible to be considered for a place for September 2020 entry. All shortlisted applicants will be invited for interview at the University of Southampton.

PhD Studentship Understanding The Role of Promoters in Heterogeneous Catalysis

University of Southampton is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a PhD position. This position is available for 4 years. Candidates are welcome before August 16, 2019.

Catalysts play a crucial role in our current way of life; they increase the availability of food through nitrogen fixation, via the Haber-Bosch process, as well as playing a key role in the petrochemicals industry, amongst many other applications. As society moves towards more sustainable technologies, catalysts will play a vital role in enabling these emerging industries.

Promoters are additives to catalysts which either enhance performance, suppress unwanted side reactions (this might also be called selective poisoning), or stabilise structure/surface area. Current industrial technologies use promoters across many applications, e.g. pollution control catalysts, fuel cells, and catalysts for the chemical industry.Often the role of promoters in catalysts is poorly understood, not least because they are added in such low levels and can be difficult to locate using traditional analysis methods. In collaboration with Johnson Matthey (www.matthey.com), a global science and chemicals company, this project will examine the role of promoters in catalysts for chemical synthesis, developing methods to locate the promoters and relate their performance and function to preparation methods.

Throughout the course of the project the successful applicant will get first-hand experience of catalyst preparation, materials characterisation, and catalytic activity testing. This will be coupled with exposure to state-of-the-art techniques facilitated by modern synchrotron radiation sources, e.g. Diamond Light Source (www.diamond.ac.uk).

This project is a unique opportunity to be at the frontier of materials characterisation and demonstrate how it can impact on future technologies; funding is for 4 years and requires applicants to have, or soon to obtain, at least an upper second class degree in Chemistry or relevant disciplines. Funding will cover fees and stipend at current research council rates.

Eligibility criteria can be found on the EPSRC website -https://www.epsrc.ac.uk/skills/students/help/eligibility/

Applications for an PhD in Chemistry should be submitted online at https://studentrecords.soton.ac.uk/BNNRPROD/bzsksrch.P_Login?pos=4990&majr=4990&term=201617#_ga=1.23945465.2120898106.1412059827

PhD Studentship Crystal Structure Prediction Based Nmr Crystallography

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in computing systems at University of Southampton. The deadline for applying is September 01, 2019.

A fully funded 4 year PhD studentship is available in computational materials chemistry at the University of Southampton. You will join a computational chemistry research group developing methods for crystal structure prediction and their applications in various exciting applications to molecular solids (http://www.crystalstructureprediction.net). Your project will focus on NMR crystallography of organic molecular materials. The determination of crystal structures from solid state NMR is an important complementary method to traditional diffraction-based structure determination. A crucial ingredient in these methods is the generation of realistic trial structures whose simulated NMR spectra are compared to experiment. We have developed the use of unbiased crystal structure prediction methods as a basis for NMR crystallography [1-3].

The project will continue the development of these methods, contributing to the crystal structure prediction software developed in the research group, with a specific focus on using calculated chemical shifts to constrain and guide crystal structure prediction calculations towards optimised structures. An example of recent related work is the determination of conformational constraints to reduce the structure search space for highly flexible molecules [4].

You will gain experience in a wide range of computational techniques, including force field methods, quantum mechanical modelling and global optimisation, making use of the University of Southampton's powerful high performance computing system (ranked as one of the worlds' most powerful HPCs: https://www.southampton.ac.uk/isolutions/news/2018/03/14-one-of-the-worlds-most-powerful-supercomputer.page). The research group also regularly uses national supercomputing facilities in their research.

In addition to carrying out PhD research you will be closely involved in undergraduate teaching (20% time commitment in years 1-3), and will be supported by mentoring to achieve Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy. You will participate in undergraduate teaching in physical chemistry. In year 1 this will involve teaching lab activities and support teaching with a member of staff (e.g. workshops), but in years 2 and 3 after some experience there will be opportunities to host tutorials or undertake other more responsible roles.
