PhD vacancy (4 years) on fatigue testing of composites with advanced instrumentation @ Ghent University (Belgium)

PhD vacancy (4 years) on fatigue testing of composites with advanced instrumentation @ Ghent University (Belgium)

Applications accepted all year round

Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

 Dept. of Materials Science and Engineering, University of Ghent

Project Description

Composites are used more and more as structural components in aerospace industry, automotive sector, wind energy applications,… As a consequence, the loads on those composite components are much higher than for secondary components, and can lead to fatigue damage in the composite part. Moreover, the fatigue behaviour of fibre-reinforced composites is much more complex than that of metals, because of the many different fibre/polymer combinations, the heterogeneous nature of the composite, the anisotropic behaviour of the composite and the multitude of damage mechanisms.

In this research project, it is the purpose to test the mechanical response of fibre-reinforced composites in fatigue, but at the same time monitor the micromechanical damage mechanisms that occur during fatigue. This includes matrix cracking, delamination and fibre failure. Besides that, the degradation of the stiffness properties and the possible occurrence of creep and visco-elastic effects should be measured. To that purpose, advanced online and offline instrumentation techniques have to be developed.
UGent-MMS has already a very long tradition in fatigue testing and monitoring, and has extensive equipment for that. Composite specimens can be tested in various loading scenarios (tension-tension, tension-compression, bending, shear,…), together with online Digital Image Correlation (DIC), video-microscopy and post-mortem inspection with optical and SEM microscopy. The group has also acquired a high-end active thermography system which can be used to monitor fatigue damage.

This PhD project requires a very good experimentalist, who has a thorough background in composites and has experience with fatigue testing and/or advanced instrumentation techniques. The PhD position fits into a larger project, funded by the Dutch Polymer Institute (DPI) in the Netherlands. Along with the experimental PhD track, a postdoctoral track will focus on the modelling of the fatigue damage in composites, based on the micromechanical observations from the experiments in the PhD track. There will be a close collaboration with this postdoctoral researcher and with the DPI industrial partners (Sabic, DSM, Shell, Akzo Nobel, Teijin) that will follow this project.

Only candidates with a Master degree should apply. The candidate should have a strong interest in experimental testing and instrumentation. A background in composites is recommended.

Tailored mechanical design of biodegradable metallic orthopaedic implant devices

Tailored mechanical design of biodegradable metallic orthopaedic implant devices

Project Description

Short Project Description

During the last two decades, rigid internal fixation with micro-plates and screws has gained widespread acceptance in the correction of craniomaxillofacial deformities. However, studies have proposed that in many cases these metallic plates and screws require removal. A biodegradable plating system would eliminate problems associated with permanent devices, as stability is necessary only for a reasonably short period until the fracture segments have become fused. Biodegradable metals such as magnesium alloys have made available new designs of implantable orthopaedic devices, which gradually degrade in the human body. Nevertheless, an optimal design of biodegradable device does not exist yet, despite advances in designing and manufacturing with the use of traditional orthopaedic materials.

The aim of this PhD project is to investigate some novel mechanical designs of biodegradable metallic bone screws along with their different manufacturing techniques. The research will focus on improving treatment outcomes of bone fracture immobilisation in craniofacial orthopaedic applications by developing a resorbable metallic implant system. This work represents a paradigm shift in bone fixation, providing innovations that will lead to reducing patient recovery time, removing the need for secondary implant removal surgeries and enhanced osseosynthesis.

This PhD position requires strong mechanical engineering design and computational skills. The candidate should have a demonstrable interest in the development of medical devices.

New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands

New Drugs, New Biology, Tomorrow’s Therapies: Design and Characterisation of Novel Cannabinoid Ligands

Applications accepted all year round
Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Project Description

Compounds derived from Cannabis sativa, termed “cannabinoids”, primarily exert their effects via two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), Cannabinoid Receptors 1 and 2 (CB1 and CB2). Both receptors are under intense scrutiny as potential therapeutic targets.

Clinical development of CB1-targeted drugs has been hindered by CB1’s high level of central nervous system expression which mediates Cannabis’ psychotropic effects. We are interested in avoiding these side-effects by developing ligands which activate more limited or unique signalling patterns in comparison with traditional cannabinoid ligands, and/or whose physicochemical properties reduce the passage of drug into the central nervous system.

On the other hand, CB2 is expressed primarily in the immune system and CB2-targeted drugs are promising therapeutic leads in a wide range of disorders involving immune system dysregulation, including multiple sclerosis, autoimmune disorders, atherosclerosis, stroke and inflammatory bowel disease.

We are collaborating with researchers at the University of Otago in developing novel cannabinoid ligands which we anticipate may represent new therapeutic leads and/or pharmacological tools.

The focus of this project will be to screen novel cannabinoids (and previously reported cannabinoids of interest) for their properties in various aspects of their molecular pharmacology at CB1 and CB2, and follow up leads of interest to probe further into the functional effects and mechanisms driving these.

We are particularly interested in studying functional selectivity, wherein a single GPCR has the potential to mediate the activation or inactivation of diverse signalling pathways and each molecule that interacts with the receptor has the potential to induce a unique ‘fingerprint’ of signalling events within the cell. A cutting-edge concept in functional selectivity is that of spatio-temporal modulation, and this project will characterise ligand function in this context by utilising cutting-edge spatially restricted signalling pathway biosensors.

This project would primarily be based at the University of Auckland though may include spending some time at the University of Otago carrying out chemical synthesis. The structure and specifics of this can somewhat be tailored to the background and interests of the candidate.

Funding Notes

This is a funded position with tuition fees and stipend available.

Enquiries are invited from prospective PhD candidates preferably intending to commence their studies in early- to mid-2018. A background in the molecular pharmacology of GPCRs is strongly preferred, and familiarity with medicinal chemistry would be an advantage.

Skills Taught (background / working knowledge on application advantageous)
• Mammalian cell culture and transfection
• Radioligand binding assays
• GPCR signalling assays, e.g. cAMP, pERK, intracellular calcium, beta-arrestin, intracellular trafficking
• Medicinal chemistry; SAR / chemical synthesis / receptor-drug modelling

The non-linear states of convection in the Earth core

The non-linear states of convection in the Earth core

 Faculty of Engineering, Environment & Computing, Coventry University

Project Description

The project concerns convection under a magnetic field in the so called “tangent cylinder” region of the Earth’s core. Much of the mystery surrounding the Earth’s dynamics (its magnetic field, plate tecnonics) lies in the nature of the convective patterns within the Earth’s liquid core, and in particular in the region called the “Tangent Cylinder”. What are the possible convective states under the combined influence of the Earth’s rotation and magnetic field, and how erratic are they? This thesis is part of a theoretical and experimental research program funded by the prestigious Levehulme Trust (http://www.leverhulme.ac.uk) that aims at answering these questions. The purpose of this thesis is to theoretically predict all possible nonlinear convective states for the first time. We will then evaluate which of these states are mostly likely to underpin the Earth’s core convection.

The student will conduct the theoretical and numerical analysis of the problem under the joint supervision of Prof. Alban Pothérat (http://users.complexity-coventry.org/~potherat/index.html) and Dr Chris Pringle. The study will seek the possible structure of convection by means of advanced stability theory and branch tracking method, to unveil the possible states. In the frame of the research program, the PhD work will be conducted in collaboration with an experimental study that will seek to reproduce and visualise these non-linear states in an experimental model of the Earth Core.
