PARTICLE-TURBULENCE INTERACTIONS IN WALL-BOUNDED FLOWS

Deadline:17 March 2017 Opens:3 March 2017

Nearly 70% of hydrocarbons are produced from poorly consolidated sandstone reservoirs worldwide which are inevitably mixed with sand. Sand production – as small as 0.01w% – leads to major erosion problems such as degradation of pipelines, down-hole tubing and production equipment including pumps and valves. The impinging sand particles will cause excessive damage to the surface layer, which will also reduce the effectiveness of corrosion inhibitors and enhance corrosive degradation. Meanwhile, corrosion will in return enhance erosion resulting in severe and rapid loss of surface metal (washout). The massive economic cost of erosion – particulates being the most common source – is highlighted in a Schlumberger review article which reports that erosion and synergy with corrosion annually costs the industry “tens of billions of dollars”.

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.

Integrating technology to support active lifestyles in youth with Type 1 diabetes: The ActivPals programme

Deadline:21 April 2017 Opens:14 March 2017

This PhD studentship will involve exploring new opportunities to use technology to support active lifestyles for individuals living with Type 1 diabetes. Diabetes is a growing global public health problem and involves careful management of blood glucose levels. Leading an active lifestyle is important for successful management of blood glucose and overall diabetes health. This PhD will explore the design and integration of mobile technology (such as smartphones and wearable devices) monitoring glucose and physical activity into and existing intervention called ActivPals (an intervention to support active lifestyles in youth with Type 1 diabetes). In addition the PhD will also investigate integration of the intervention into existing diabetes education systems (My Diabetes My Way) and existing clinical data (SCI Diabetes) platforms.

The specific objectives of this research are:

  • To explore patient, parent/carer and health professional views on the integration of mobile technology within diabetes platforms including views on data management and access (e.g. security, privacy, trust, ownership)
  • To explore what supporting components are needed in combination with physical activity and glucose data to help people with diabetes, their parents/carers and health care professionals to understand and use this data effectively to guide individual health care and self-management.
  • To conduct a pilot study to explore feasibility, acceptability and indicative effects of the ActivPals intervention in combination with mobile activity and glucose monitoring and supporting educational components through My Diabetes My Way.

 

The outcomes of the project will be of interest to a range of individuals including people with diabetes, health care professional, glucose monitoring companies, athletes, coaches and health promotion specialists. The applied nature of the project will also provide the student with opportunities to network with several organisations (e.g. physical activity and health providers and diabetes support teams and charities, mobile technology companies, the Digital Health and Care Institute and the NHS) and for knowledge exchange activities including communicating their research to health professionals and patient groups within diabetes, giving the student important transferrable skills.

Allan & Nesta Ferguson Postgraduate PhD Final Year Scholarship Opportunity

Deadline:31 December 2019 Opens:9 May 2016

The Allan and Nesta Ferguson Charitable Trust was set up in 1979 by their son and daughter in law, John and Elnora. 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 :

www.fergusontrust.co.ukThe Trust awards grants to postgraduate PhD students, whether from overseas or from the UK, to help meet tuition costs, but only in respect of the last year of their course. Students must be studying at a university in the UK.

The Trust will only provide a one-off grant to postgraduate PhD students in their final year of study, therefore if you have received a grant previously you are not eligible to apply again, even if you require funding to help with a different course.

The Trust does not support students undertaking a postgraduate diploma/certificate, or Masters degree (such as an MA, MSc, MBA, LLM, MEd, Mphil, Mres).

REA Scholarship History : Health, Medicine and the First World War : New Perspectives

Deadline:20 March 2017 Opens:1 February 2017

The School of Humanities at the University of Strathclyde is seeking to invest in ground-breaking research into the impacts of the First World War on health and medicine.  The field has been dominated by major debates about the impact of conflict on the mental health of combatants, the condition of populations in nations engaged in the war, and about the extent to which the medical challenges posed by industrial warfare stimulated innovation in surgery and medicine.

This studentship is designed to encourage imaginative and highly original projects that get beyond these debates to offer fresh perspectives on the period, particularly the ways in which people experienced and responded to conflict. Applications that include combatants and/or non-combatants, men and/or women, medical, cultural, social and/or political contexts, national case studies or transnational histories, and primary sources as diverse as pension records, works of art or medical journals would all be considered.

The project will be supervised by Dr. Emma Newlands and Professor Jim Mills and will be supported by the Centre for the Social History of Health and Healthcare (CSHHH) Glasgow and the School of Humanities Peace, Conflict & Identity research group.  The successful candidate will join the thriving postgraduate community at the CSHHH Glasgow and will be a full member of the Graduate School in Humanities and Social Sciences.  History at Strathclyde was ranked second in Scotland, and ninth in the UK, by the Times Higher Education Supplement for research intensity after REF2014.

REA Scholarship Psychology : Intergenerational engagement interventions for enhanced cognition in older age.

Deadline:3 April 2017 Opens:20 January 2017

The UK is ageing rapidly. Age-related decline in cognitive abilities like memory and attention is among the most feared aspects of ageing, with implications for quality of life and independence. Lifestyle factors such as social engagement, new learning, and physical activity may be beneficial for cognitive functioning in older age. School-based intergenerational engagement is a promising approach to enhancing cognition in older age. This involves placing trained older adult volunteers into local schools to help children‘s educational and social skills. 

While contributing knowledge, expertise, and social support to their local communities, older adult participants have shown improved cognitive performance, enhanced brain structure and functioning, and better physical and lifestyle activity levels. 
Beginning in October 2017, this PhD project is aimed at developing and implementing an evidence-based intergenerational engagement programme within Scotland. A pilot trial will assess a range of cognitive abilities in older adult volunteers, before and after the intervention. We will also assess the volunteers’ experiences of the intervention, and key outcomes for the schools involved.

REA Scholarship Education : Poverty, income dynamics and developmental trajectories in early and late childhood

Deadline:3 April 2017 Opens:20 January 2017

The impact of poverty on children’s developmental outcomes (e.g., cognitive, behavioural, and health related) is a major concern for researchers, policy makers and practitioners around the world. While research exploring the association between economic deprivation and childhood outcomes abound, there are three significant limitations in our existing knowledge.

First, the mechanism by which economic deprivation leads to poor developmental outcomes remains unclear.

Second, existing studies mainly focus on pathways from poverty to a single developmental outcome rather than considering effects on multiple outcomes and the dynamic interrelationship between these outcomes.

Finally, there is limited research into the effect of differing dynamics of income poverty on developmental outcomes.

The PhD will aim to address these important issues in order to deepen our understanding of the relationship between family income dynamics and developmental outcomes in childhood. The study will be undertaken using existing large scale prospective longitudinal data sets in the UK and abroad. It will capitalise on recent advancements in longitudinal analytic techniques such as latent growth modelling, growth mixture modelling, or Bayesian analysis to advance knowledge in the field.

REA Scholarship Education : Using Pupil Views Templates to investigate the development of thinking across children at point of school entry in Scotland

Deadline:3 April 2017 Opens:20 January 2017

Metacognition is an area of increasing relevance in education, with strong correlations reliably confirmed between metacognitive awareness and attainment; however, what this looks like in young children starting school is under researched. 

With the Scottish Parliament’s emphasis on early years education then a systematic exploration of the metacognitive awareness of children entering their first year at school and the variables that impact on this would be useful in informing the ways in which we induct children into learning and support their achievement. This would also have close links to the Scottish Attainment Challenge.

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 impact of changing tax rates and welfare spending in a devolved context: the case of Scotland and the Smith Commission powers

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 element will be to develop new methods to assess the impact of changes in devolved policy on key economic behaviours, including labour market responses. 

Secondly, you will then use these new techniques to undertake analysis to illustrate the likely economic and fiscal implications of different policy choices and undertake policy recommendations.

The project will be undertaken within the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI) within the Department of Economics. The FAI is Scotland’s leading applied economic research institute and has built an established international reputation for economic modelling.

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?
