Note: CURRENT UCLAN RESEARCH STUDENTS ARE NOT ELIGIBLE TO APPLY FOR THE ADVERTISED RESEARCH STUDENTSHIPS
Reference Number: RS/13/17
Applications are invited for a full-time PhD studentship in the School of Computing, Engineering and Physical Sciences funded by BAE SYSTEMS Maritime – Submarines. The studentship is tenable for up to 3.5 years for a PhD (via MPhil route) [subject to satisfactory progress]. The studentship will cover the cost of tuition fees for UK/EU residents plus a maintenance grant of £18,120 for 3.5 years.
The successful applicant will start on 1 January 2014. Restricted to Home/EU students only due to security reasons.
Project Title: Automatic defect seeking and geometry characterisation by intelligent beam forming and scanning of ultrasonic arrays.
An opportunity is available for a postgraduate studentship as part of a collaborative project to develop techniques for automating the non-destructive evaluation of welds with ultrasonic array transducers. The aim of the project is to develop potentially world first intelligent ultrasonic non-destructive evaluation system for inspection of welds by automating some of the more laborious aspects of the inspection process.
The work undertaken at UCLan will be to develop pattern recognition and machine learning algorithms to be employed in an automated intelligent software controller for data acquisitions made using an ultrasonic array transducer.
The objectives are to develop a system with the following capabilities:
The successful candidate will develop machine intelligence algorithms and control software for automated data acquisition and analysis using an ultrasonic array transducer.
Applicants should have a good honours degree (2:1 classification or above) in electronic engineering or a cognate discipline, and exceptional technical and interpersonal skills. Postgraduate experience, although desirable, is not essential.
Applicants should have, or expect to receive a minimum of UK 2:1 honours degree (or equivalent) in electronic engineering or a cognate discipline, and exceptional technical and interpersonal skills. Postgraduate experience, although desirable, is not essential.

The successful applicant will start on 1 April 2014. International Applicants may apply but will be required to fund the difference between Home/EU and International Fees.
Project Title: Developing Biophotonic Techniques for the Rapid Diagnosis of Cancer from Biofluids.
The research project will develop the use of vibrational spectroscopy combined the multivariate analysis, Raman and FTIR, for the diagnosis of cancer from biofluids, providing the basis for point-of-care diagnostics. Full training and support in vibrational spectroscopy, pre-processing and multivariate analysis will be provided. Further, the project will involve the participation of clinicians working in the field of cancer diagnosis and treatment.
Applicants should have a undergraduate or postgraduate Masters in a relavant discipline. A strong interest in analytical chemistry (spectroscopy) is essential.
