Vibration-based Structural Health Monitoring through self-diagnosing structural components made of Nano Enriched Composites

Deadline:15 August 2016 Opens:1 July 2016

The Lloyd’s Register Foundation funds the advancement of engineer-related education and research and supports work that enhances safety of life at sea, on land and in the air, because life matters. Lloyd’s Register Foundation is partly funded by the profits of their trading arm Lloyd’s Register Group Limited, a global engineering, technical and business services organisation.

NSIRC is a state-of-the-art postgraduate engineering facility established and managed by structural integrity specialist TWI, working closely with, top UK and International Universities and a number of leading industrial partners.NSIRC aims to deliver cutting edge research and highly qualified personnel to its key industrial partners.


The main goal of this proposal is to develop the foundations of dynamically self-sensing and self-diagnosing structures capable of measuring their vibrations and using them to diagnose their structural integrity. The background stems from vibration-based structural health monitoring, which uses the structural vibrations to make conclusions about its integrity and health. This is combined with the idea of using conductive or piezo-electric nano-inclusions as sensors, which is based on the piezo-resistive and piezo-electric properties of some materials. The first relate the conductivity and the strain of the structure and hence its vibrations, while the latter convert the strain into voltage and vice versa and they are used for dynamic/vibration transducers. This proposal suggests to employ piezoresistive and/or piezo-electric nano-inclusions for measuring and assessment of the structural vibrations and use these vibrations to assess the structural health.

Developing Energy Applications with Mobile Information Solutions for Social Housing Stakeholders

Deadline:26 August 2016 Opens:10 August 2016

Joint PhD: Departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering & Computer and Information Sciences, University of Strathclyde

The Departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering  and  Computer & Information Sciences are seeking an outstanding and committed graduate to undertake research leading to the award of a PhD from the University of Strathclyde.

Poor indoor conditions are a serious problem in the UK social housing sector, with around 10% of households being classed as fuel poor. The inability to adequately heat a home and consequent low temperatures causes high humidity, condensation and mould growth; these conditions can lead to health problems, particularly respiratory disease, and can also cause deterioration of the building fabric and furnishings. Energy and environmental monitoring can help address poor indoor conditions, providing the basis for new energy services targeting improved comfort and health outcomes for occupants, avoided costs from degradation of materials and data for effective fabric and system improvements. 

This 3-year multi-disciplinary PhD project will investigate the use of pervasive sensing in social housing to help alleviate the problems highlighted. Making use of monitored data, energy-related applications and interfaces will be developed providing tailored information to end users. Applications will include environmental monitoring, energy performance assessment and cost estimation.

PhD Studentship Assessment Strain Effects in Pipeline Dents

Deadline:31 May 2016 Opens:3 May 2016

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde under the supervision of Dr Julia Race and Dr Selda Oterkus. The aim of the PhD research is to develop a validated, pragmatic and useable model for determining the strain in pipeline dents from geometric measurements. Historically, industry codes and guidance for dent assessment have relied on a measurement of dent depth to determine acceptability. Subsequently the standards moved to set a limit on the level of strain induced in the pipe as a result of the dent as it was considered that this would give a better indication of dent acceptability than the depth. What is required is a methodology for calculating total dent strain that: i) is easy to use with measurements that can be readily made in the field or obtained from pipeline In-line inspection (ILI) data; ii) does not require intensive and expensive FEA to be conducted on every dent and iii) recognises the key parameters that contribute to strain concentration in the dent.

John Fitzsimons Memorial Scholarships

Deadline:13 May 2016 Opens:30 November 2015

Applications are invited from suitable mature candidates for the award of a John Fitzsimons scholarship.

John Fitzsimons was one of Strathclyde University Law School’s first and most inspirational lecturers. He taught Criminal Law & Jurisprudence for twenty years before becoming a highly-respected judge (Sheriff). To achieve this, he and his family made considerable sacrifices – not least when he became a mature student at the age of 25.

John Fitzsimons believed that talented individuals should have proper access to education on the basis of academic merit, rather than financial.

School of Social Work and Social Work Policy - Strathclyde Research Studentship Scheme - Research Excellence Awards

Deadline:15 May 2016 Opens:21 March 2016

PROJECT TITLE : Mandatory reporting of child maltreatment in the UK and USA: professional decision-making of nurses working with families of disabled children

This PhD studentship aims to explore the controversies surrounding mandatory reporting of child abuse and neglect within the particular context of nursing disabled children in the UK and USA. A system of mandatory reporting by certain occupational groups has existed in the USA since the 1960s. Within the UK, the introduction of such a system has been advocated by some and resisted by others. In the context of health services, concerns have been expressed regarding legal, professional and ethical tensions inherent within the clinician/patient relationship where a statutory duty is imposed to report suspected cases of abuse. It has also been suggested that such measures would act as a disincentive for families to seek help. 

The study will use a multi-method approach including systematic review, survey and interview methods to examine policy and practice in the UK and USA and decision-making processes of health professionals. There will be a strong element of informing practice and dissemination of findings to relevant organisations.

The studentship is funded by the University of Strathclyde. It will be jointly supervised by Dr Christine Jones and Prof Bernard Harris from the School of Social Work and Social Policy, University of Strathclyde and Prof Julie Taylor from the School of Nursing, University of Birmingham.

Physical Activity for Health Group (PSH) Strathclyde Research Studentship Scheme - Research Excellence Awards

Deadline:18 April 2016 Opens:21 March 2016

“Reducing Sedentary Behaviour in Office Workers”

Too much sitting has a detrimental effect on health. Office-based workers are a high risk group who engage in large amounts of prolonged sitting and are a key target group for intervention. 

This PhD will utilise the RE-AIM framework as a basis to explore the Reach, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance of interventions to reduce sedentary behaviour in working adults. The proposed PhD will build on preparatory work with the overall objective of exploring the translation and implementation of an intervention into a medium- to large-sized external business. 

The research will involve quantitative and qualitative methods to explore changes in sedentary behaviour during work and leisure time, in addition to impact on work productivity and quality of life. In alignment with the Medical Research Council guidelines on evaluating complex health interventions a systematic process evaluation will also be conducted with data collection before, during and after the intervention to identify key issues related to delivery of the intervention in practice.

The Neural Basis of Creativity - EPSRC PhD Studentship (School of Psychological Sciences and Health)

Deadline:31 May 2016 Opens:24 March 2016

This is a call for applications for a fully funded PhD studentship at the University of Strathclyde, in the area of applied cognitive neuroscience. The aim of this PhD project is to explore the nature of creativity in the design process using brain imaging (fMRI) techniques.

 

There are many different approaches to design in both current industrial practice and academia and many of them are strongly influenced, if not partially guided by the technology and the tools available to the practitioners in their specific field. This is reflected not only in the daily activities of design practitioners, but also in the way they perceive the design process. This is framing the design process itself and hindering its potential, as well as potentially limiting the innovative and creative capabilities the actors in the process could achieve.

 

The aim of this project is to explore the broader nature of creativity within design and to examine this in the behaviours and brain activation patterns of experienced designers. This project will contribute to a better understanding of the nature of the design process and its effect on human behaviour, which could then be used to modify, in order to improve, or develop new design methodologies, tools and activities.

 

Applicants must be able to demonstrate enthusiasm, responsibility, creativity, quick uptake of new concepts, an interest in cognitive neuroscience and a mature approach to learning. Collaboration with other academic institutions and designers will be expected; therefore good interpersonal skills and collaboration capabilities will be an asset.

Transatlantic PhD Studentship - Centre for Health Policy (Social Work)

Deadline:31 May 2016 Opens:6 April 2016

3 fully-funded PhD studentships (within the School of Social Work and Social Policy) with stipends are available to start in September 2016 at the University of Strathclyde. These include the opportunity to spend up to 12 months at Yale or New York University (with funding available to pay for flights and accommodation in the US).

The PhDs will be based in the inter-disciplinary Centre for Health Policy, focusing upon mental health, social inclusion or poverty-impacted families. The Centre for Health Policy is part of the University of Strathclyde’s International Public Policy Institute and has developed collaborations with the NHS, third sector organisations, business and Government. These PhDs are linked to a 4-year transatlantic partnership, which includes a number of high-level European and U.S. academic institutions and NGOs. The PhDs are located within the CHP’s new Centre for Doctoral Training and are partly sponsored by NHS Lothian and NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

The research themes of the three PhDs are:

  • Supporting poverty-impacted children and families (in partnership with NYU McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research)
  • Health citizenship and human rights (in partnership with Yale University Medical School)
  • Mental health recovery and homelessness (in partnership with NYU Silver School of Social Work)

These studentships provide a unique opportunity to inform both local and international health policy and practice and will be of interest to top class students from a range of disciplines.

Applicants must either be UK nationals, or EU citizens who have been resident in the UK for at least 3 years.

'Healthy Habits Happy Homes: Translation of an Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Intervention to Socio-economically Deprived Families in Scotland' (funded by the Hannah Research Foundation)

Deadline:31 May 2016 Opens:6 May 2016

This is a call for applications for a fully funded PhD studentship at the University of Strathclyde, in the area of physical activity and health. The aim of this PhD project is to evaluate the feasibility of an early childhood obesity prevention intervention in socio-economically deprived families in Scotland.

 

The ‘Healthy Habits Happy Homes’ (HHHH) intervention was recently developed at Harvard by collaborators Taveras et al. (2012) and Haines et al. (2013). HHHH is a home-based intervention which encourages healthier family habits to modify the most ‘obesogenic’ early childhood health behaviours: high child screen-time; low child sleep/lack of sleep routines; absence of family meal routines.  Efficacy of HHHH has been demonstrated in low socio-economic status families of young children in Boston. The HHHH intervention is novel, almost unique in being successful, and has the potential to be ‘rolled out’ because it is low cost. The feasibility of the intervention and trial in Scotland needs to be evaluated to plan a future ‘definitive’ randomised controlled trial, as recommended by the MRC in their framework for the development and evaluation of complex interventions.

 

The PhD will focus on evaluating the feasibility of the HHHH and will involve: i) a systematic review of a relevant topic and ii) a long-term feasibility trial of the HHHH in Scottish families involving both qualitative and quantitative elements.

 

Applicants must be able to demonstrate good interpersonal skills and experience in behaviour change techniques and/or motivational interviewing would be desirable. Previous experience working with children and families in a research capacity would also be considered beneficial.

Its objectives have closely followed the interests of the Ferguson family in their commitment to education, peace and development in the Third World. In 1997, the substantial holding of Taylor and Francis shares became valuable when the publishing company was floated, and its subsequent merger with Informa further enhanced the value of the shares in the Trust. Over the last 15 years, more than £30 million has been distributed to a range of charities working in the UK and overseas.

For further details of who is eligible to apply, please visit the relevant website pages :

Testing the limits of the ‘hard man’ in film: Masculinity and male health behaviour in Scotland’s public health films 1934-2000

Deadline:24 June 2016 Opens:31 May 2016

The stereotype of the ‘hard man’ has an established place in written and cinematic Scottish fiction and is examined in a number of empirically based studies, for instance, in linguistics and labour history That stereotype is conventionally associated with manual labour in ‘big’ industries (such as ship building), with heavy drinking, violence, cynical humour and the performance of machismo. More recently, with the decline of larger manufacturing industries across Scotland, the stereotype is also apparently provoked by the absence of labour, cf. John Caughie’s assertion: ‘when masculinity can no longer define itself in ‘hard work’ it increasingly identifies itself with the ‘hard man’ for whom anguish, cynicism and violence are the only ways to recover the lost dignities of labour’.

While the implications that this hard drinking, heavy smoking and often violent lifestyle have for the actual medical health of the population of Glasgow and Scotland is relatively well understood, what has been under-explored is both the manner and impact of the NHS, Council and other attempts by public bodies and charities to address and challenge this stereotype in public health films with the intention of improving population health. While the project will explore how public health films mapped onto the evolution of particular health campaigns and concerns (for e.g. alcoholism, lung cancer, occupational health) since the Second World War, it will also engage directly with the construct of the ‘hard man’ as it features implicitly and explicitly in the content of the various films and how this persona is remembered and articulated through interviews. It is anticipated that other dimensions of Scottish masculinity (the man as ‘provider’, their sentimental attachment to family and loyalty to their peers) may emerge, which could provide a more nuanced understanding of the ‘hard man’ archetype and its impact – for better and worse – on key areas of medical concern in relation to masculine health in Scotland during the latter part of the twentieth century.

“Beyond Shell-Shock: New perspectives on psychological and/or emotional responses to the First World War.”

Deadline:3 August 2016 Opens:11 July 2016

'Shell-shock' has tended to dominate the historiography of the psychological and emotional responses to the First World War. Historians have shown that the category was contested, often related to the ‘industrial’ nature of the warfare, and had lasting impacts on British society. Much of this research has focused on male combatants and female nurses. Research on women who experienced active service in other contexts (the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps (WAAC), the Women’s Royal Naval Service and the Women’s Royal Air Force) and men who did not fight overseas remains under-developed. This project promises to go beyond the limitations of the existing literature, namely its restricted focus on nurses and its narrow concern with those classified as suffering from ‘shell-shock’, to provide fresh perspectives on the ways in which people experienced and responded to conflict. The project is in part an examination of the impacts of experiencing warfare on society, in part a study of the response of the medical profession to combat trauma in this period, and in part an effort to recover lost histories of trauma and suffering.

The new fiscal powers of the Scottish Parliament and their impact on public services and the Scottish economy

Deadline:31 May 2016 Opens:4 March 2016

The delivery of the Smith Commission’s recommendations for the Scottish Parliament (Smith 2014) mark the next major step in the process of devolution within the UK.

This scholarship – part of 2 PhD studentships in the Fraser of Allander under this overarching theme – will help inform our understanding of the economic implications of greater devolution within the UK and the challenges and opportunities that this brings.

The project will be in two parts.  Firstly, the technical research programme will extend and develop existing FAI models of the Scottish economy to formalise new frameworks to improve the ability of economic researchers to evaluate key devolution and policy issues at the regional level, and in particular, in the post-Smith era of Scottish devolution.

Secondly, it will then use these new techniques to run a series of simulations to illustrate the likely economic and fiscal implications of different policy choices on the Scottish economy and public finances (including their dynamic trends)as well as exploring the robustness of these results to model assumptions. The project will be undertaken in the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI) within the Department of Economics. The FAI is Scotland’s leading applied economic research institute and has established an international reputation for regional economic modelling over more than 40 years.

The transition to a low carbon future: Ex post evaluations of the economic impacts of energy technologies

Deadline:17 April 2016 Opens:14 March 2016

In addition to the widely cited energy trilemma of emissions reduction, energy security and energy affordability, energy policy – and particularly in the transition to a low carbon economy - is increasingly being promoted for its potential economic development consequences.

There has been recent debate about whether the specification of economic models might overestimate the economic impacts of low carbon economy, and the net gains at a national level (Blyth et al, 2014). Simultaneously there has been increasing use of ex post statistical techniques to explore the scale and timing of economic impacts from energy developments (e.g. Brown et al, 2012; Munasib and Rickman, 2015, Paredes et al, 2015). This poses the central question to be answered in this research: using ex post techniques, what factors explain recent developments in low carbon energy in the UK, and what are the economic consequences at different spatial levels of recent low carbon energy developments?

This study thus plans to address the following research questions:

  • What are the factors which explain the spatial and technological pattern of recent low carbon developments in the UK?
  • Can the latest statistical techniques shed light on the economic consequences of low carbon technologies in the UK?
  • What are the economic consequences at different spatial scales of recent low carbon developments in the UK?
