University of Bristol - Electrical and Electronic Engineering

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Bristol
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students
Funding amount: Minimum £15,609 p.a. for 3.5 years subject to eligibility status and confirmation of award

The project:

Are you a materials engineer or chemistry graduate looking to apply your background to next generation electrical technologies in pursuit of Carbon Net Zero?

We are seeking a motivated PhD candidate to join The Electrical Machine Works to develop high-performance electrical insulation coatings for metal 3D printed components. You will work in a multi-institution, multi-disciplinary team across material science, process development, design for additive manufacture and experimental testing with opportunity for industrial collaboration and commercialisation.

A multidisciplinary supervisory team will provide training and project supervision. The student will be involved in the following activities (non-exhaustive):

  1. Learning relevant underpinning material science, chemistry, and application context
  2. Development of mechanical-, chemical- and electro-polishing post-processes to control AM part surface roughness
  3. Undertake surface, bulk and material property characterisation via, for example, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), Computed Tomography (CT), Optimal profilometry, Grain structure analysis and electrical conductivity measurement
  4. In-depth study and development of coating technologies ranging from organics to inorganics
  5. Collaboration with industrial and academic partners within The Electrical Machine Works
  6. Publication of findings at appropriate international conferences and in journal proceedings
  7. Play an active role in the research group community for your own development and development of others.
