Sponsored by the EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership scheme. This studentship will provide a bursary of up to £14,296/pa (tax free) plus full fees for three years
The research project aims to investigate the application of novel X-ray characterisation techniques for rapid assessment diagnostics in a number of contemporary manufacturing processes. This is an exciting project with the potential for high impact publications and the possibility of a step change in process control within several industries.
The project will seek to solve the fundamental principles underpinning the science and engineering of novel techniques. To achieve this, the main research elements to be undertaken will include both modelling, engineering and experimental testing (setting up a new camera/detector for assessments). The work will be undertaken with manufacturing and pharmaceutical industrial partners.
The PhD programme will be supported by all the resources available at Cranfield Forensic Institute including a number of bespoke X-ray imaging and analysis laboratories..
This position will be available for the October 2016 or January 2017 intakes. The project is suitable for those having or expected to obtain a first or upper second class honours degree in materials science, physical science, or engineering. Selected applicants will be invited forward for a formal interview process.
It is expected that a student receiving this funding will be able to meet one of the three UK residence requirements specified by EPSRC.
The student should be aware of and accepts the relevant Research Council terms and conditions.
Due to funding conditions, only applicants with UK/EU fee status are eligible for the award, although exceptional candidates from outside the EU may also be considered.
