MReS+PhD in Sensor Technologies (Fixed Term)

Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology
Closes: 
Sunday, 12 February, 2023

This is a four-year studentship funded by Astra Zeneca and will be in collaboration with the Cambridge EPSCR Centre for Doctorial Training in Sensor Technologies for a Sustainable Future. It is an interdisciplinary and research focused training programme which introduces our students to the breadth of sensor technologies and applications while providing depth in key topics. The programme ranges from the physical concepts of sensing via the interpretation and management of sensory data to modern developments in sensor applications.

EPSRC DTP Studentship - Systematic flow manipulation in wind-turbine arrays

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Tuesday, 28 February, 2023

The objective of wind turbine arrays design is ultimately to minimize the levelized cost of electricity over its lifespan. The objective of this project is: (i) to derive a fundamental understanding of the fluid dynamical constraints on the scale of the array that limits its performance, (ii) to translate this understanding into a technology that relaxes or modifies the fluid dynamical constraints, (iii) to determine experimentally and rationalize theoretically the fundamental performance characteristics underlying any proposed technology,

By 2035, UK's building stock is expected to deliver 63% reduction in total carbon emissions from 2019 levels. These reductions will require that new buildings conform to and maintain the highest energy efficiency standards, whilst also providing a healthy living environment that is resilient to future climate change.

Wednesday, 15 March, 2023

By 2035, UK's building stock is expected to deliver 78% reduction in total carbon emissions from 2019 levels. Implementation of effective retrofits that yield both embodied and operational energy savings is thus critical. Glazing systems constitute a key element of a building as they are essential for a visual, safe, and thermally comfortable indoor environment. At the same time, they are also responsible for significant heat gains/losses. Indeed, there have been wide-ranging advancements in highly efficient and responsive glazing systems that harness new materials and IoT.

Large glass products are manufactured around the world, including in the UK, using the float glass technique [1] and are shipped globally to be found in many sectors, such as automotive and architectural. These are functionalised with nanoscale layer deposition techniques to create antimicrobial, anti-reflection, or conductive surfaces before the glass is then formed into curved shapes. Current manufacturing of float glass and advanced coatings is highly efficient with continuous production.

EPSRC DTP Studentship: Contextually Adaptive Mixed Reality User Interfaces

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Friday, 10 February, 2023

This project seeks to provide a structured and effective method for dynamically adapting mixed reality user interfaces to be most suitable for the current context of use. Context here is treated broadly and may refer to physical location context, task context, and user capability context. Such adaptations must be smooth and preserve awareness of interface elements to ensure productive and enjoyable interaction experiences.
