Funded PhD studentships for September / October 2018 are now closed. We expect to open PhD applications for 2019 starts by November 2018, when more information will be available here.
All applicants must have or expect to have a 1st or 2:1 class MChem, or equivalent degree by Autumn 2019. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype).

ICS2018/01: Polymers in Extreme Environments: Exploring the ballistic impact behaviour of polymers and ultimately polymer composites
The very wide spread use of polymer means they are often subjected to extreme conditions (high temperature, pressure, strain and strain rate). However, their behaviour in these regimes is not well understood, and this project will explore this behaviour particularly under very high (ballistic) strain rates.
