The academic team in the Engineering alloys theme are excited to collaborate with enthuasiastic and interested students. We work across a range of areas in the theme and individual academics are keen to hear from students. When contacting a potential supervisor, please identify your areas of interest and overlap. Funding for PhD students depends on your residency, support from industry of the individual academic, and the ability for the candidate to seek funding from external sources. Imperial College London operates a number of competitive scholarship schemes and bursaries.
The academic staff list for the theme, and their interests, can be found within the theme's "About Us" page.
There are specific projects where funding is identified:
- PhD Studentship: Oxidation of nickel superalloys for aero-engine applications with Dr Stella Pedrazzini and Dr Baptiste Gault. More details will be uploaded shortly - please contact Dr Pedrazzini if interested.
- PhD Studentship in hot corrosion of nickel superalloys for aero-engine applications with Dr Stella Pedrazzini and Prof Mary Ryan. More details will be uploaded shortly - please contact Dr Pedrazzini if interested.
- PhD Studentship: Elastocaloric heat pumps for decarbonisation with Prof David Dye. Further details can be found here: Elastocaloric heat pumps for decarbonisation.
- PhD Studentship: Better titanium in jet engines that don’t break: advanced characterisation of deformation (sponsored by Rolls-Royce) with Prof David Dye. Further details can be found here: Better titanium in jet engines...
