The Wincott Foundation Journalism Scholarship, Cardiff University, UK

We are delighted that The Wincott Foundation offers a one-year full fee scholarship for a post graduate Masters student at School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies.

Cardiff University Cathays Park Campus UK

The Scholarship is to support excellence in financial and business journalism and is available to any student with a place accepted on one of Cardiff’s practise-based vocational Masters courses. During the course they will be expected to focus on business and financial reporting in their elective module and projects.

Business, Finance and Economics journalism is an area of specialist expertise of growing importance. As such, for graduates with a focus on these areas there are very strong employment opportunities.

It’s about more than market reporting. As Luigi Zingales, professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, put it in his Wincott Memorial Lecture in 2015:

“Inquisitive, daring and influential media outlets willing to take a strong stand against economic power are essential in a competitive capitalist society. They are our defence against crony capitalism.”

  • Application deadline: 30 June 2017
  • Start date: September 2017
  • Duration: 1 year
  • Level of study: Postgraduate taught
  • Award type: Master’s studentship

PhD Studentship in Engineering, Cardiff University, UK

Project title: Optimisation for novel material for additive manufacturing

Cardiff University Cathays Park Campus UK

This PhD project will develop a numerical method for tailoring material properties. The material properties may be metamaterial (i.e. material that does not exist in nature such as cloaking material or negative stiffness material) or smart material (i.e. morphs or changes shapes as a result of external stimulus). They can be achieved by optimizing the shape of a periodic material structure and making the material using additive manufacturing techniques. The project is primarily numerical and computational in nature with an interest in finite element and/or PDE systems and a keen enthusiasm to learn engineering optimization based on multivariable calculus. The primary tasks will be conducted by programming in C/C++. The PhD is placed in an active research group located both at Cardiff and UC San Diego and will require traveling between the two institutions although the degree awarding institution and primary base will be Cardiff. Working collaboratively and cooperating with the research group and external collaborators will be essential to the success of the project.

  • Application deadline 1 April 2017
  • Start date 01/04/2017
  • Duration 3½ years
  • Level of study Postgraduate research
  • Award type PhD studentship
  • Number of studentships One

PhD Studentship in Earth and Ocean Sciences, Cardiff University, UK

PhD in Earth and Ocean Sciences: The geology of ‘deep’ slow slip and tremor: Instability in the viscous regime?

Cardiff University Cathays Park Campus UK

To unlock the enigmatic physical processes behind a recently discovered spectrum of slow earthquake phenomena, where faults slip at speeds intermediate between steady creep and earthquakes, the ERC Project ‘MICA’ aims to define testable hypotheses based on geological observations in active and ancient fault zones, and test these inferences in numerical models with realistic lab-defined stress-strength relationships. The potential outcome is to understand the physical mechanism(s) of slow earthquakes, and thus bridge the knowledge gap in understanding what controls the speed at which faults slip.

Traditionally, major tectonic faults were thought to accommodate displacement by either slow, continuous creep, or episodic, potentially damaging earthquakes. This old paradigm of two end-member fault behaviours is now replaced by a new notion that fault slip velocities span a continuum from millimetres per year to metres per second (Peng and Gomberg, 2010). The greatest range of slip behaviours is observed at the edges of the geodetically locked zone in subduction megathrusts, in episodic slow slip and tremor events. This PhD project aims to explore structures in ancient megathrust faults exhumed from depths where active slow slip and tremor occurs.

The reason for the field-based approach is: (1) the geological record includes a range of structures formed by a mixture of continuous and discontinuous deformation processes, analogous to the seismic-aseismic transitional properties assumed for slow earthquakes; (2) tabular fault zones with mixed rheological properties contain a rich variety of deformation structures, likely arising from a rich variety of geophysically observed fault slip styles; and (3) brittle and ductile structures are intimately interconnected, and have cross-cutting relationships implying that either can trigger the other, consistent with interplay between coincident seismic and aseismic shear displacement.

PhD Studentship in Electrical Engineering, Cardiff University, UK

Project title: Rapid Identification of Broadband and Efficient PA Modes

This is a fully-funded research project, which provides an exciting opportunity in the area of RF (radio frequency) and HF (high frequency) power amplifier design with very strong multinational industry collaborations.

Cardiff University Cathays Park Campus UK

Futurewei Technologies (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Huawei North America) and Cardiff University will cooperate on the investigation of broadband and efficient PA Modes. The main goal of this project is to gain an understanding of the theoretical device/transistor limitations at RF/HF when it comes to the bandwidth/frequency tradeoffs as an enabler for future wireless communication systems (e.g. 5G to be introduced around 2020).

The collaboration will also include National Instruments utilising their hardware and software solutions. The resulting RF nonlinear measurement and modelling demonstrator will allow shorter characterisation/investigation times of RF devices (transistors) and RF PA (power amplifiers) by up several orders of magnitude.

Supervisors: Prof J Benedikt & Prof P Tasker

Start date: 1 October 2016

Funding
The award will cover tuition fees (at either the home of overseas rate) plus an annual stipend equivalent to current UK Research Council rates (£14,057 p.a. for 2015/16, updated each year).

One studentship is available.

PhD Studentship in Vision Sciences, Cardiff University, UK

Project title: Visual perception in the presence of involuntary eye movements

To avoid mistaking retinal image motion for real world movement, the visual system must take eye movements into account. This is achieved by summing eye velocity (extra-retinal information arising from the motor system, referred to as ‘efference copy’) with the retinal image motion. Any mismatch in the two neural signals generates apparent background movement. In fact, the brain’s efference copy mechanism is not perfect, even for normal observers, who consistently report that stationary backgrounds appear to move during pursuit eye movements (the Filehne illusion). By exploiting such eye movement-based illusions, it has been possible to gain an understanding of the underlying eye movement control systems in normal subjects.

Cardiff University Cathays Park Campus UK

Infantile nystagmus (IN) is a relatively common oculomotor disorder (1.4 per 1000 population), present at birth or soon after, that is characterised by repetitive, involuntary horizontal eye movements. Like any eye movement, the horizontal oscillation of IN generates retinal image motion, and therefore this condition affords us the opportunity to test a variety of models of oculomotor control and the impact of eye movements on perception.

This project will examine visual perception during nystagmus eye movements to test a variety of existing oculomotor models on a population whose eyes are constantly moving and yet who do not report that they perceive the retinal image motion. The outcome is to better understand basic oculomotor control mechanisms and their interplay with visual motion perception in the normal population by comparing performance in typical adult subjects with those who have IN.
