  Optimization of hybrid heavy-duty diesel vehicle running on biofuels from waste resources.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. OA-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. In achieving an ultra-low carbon environment, the UK and other countries have proposed a future ban on vehicles operating solely on internal combustion engines (ICE).
  Characterization of Some Biofuels from Waste Resources for Diesel Engine Applications.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Research Institute Reference Number. OA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. Biofuels such as alcohols and biodiesel from waste restaurant foods and agricultural residues have prospects as alternative source of energy for diesel engines in ensuring a low carbon environment.
  Eco-efficient downstream processing of biofuels and bio-based chemicals
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Prof A Kiss
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
The aim of this project is to investigate and develop eco-efficient separation technologies (based on process intensification principles) for the downstream processing of biofuels and bio-based chemicals.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round
A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Development of an innovative techno-economic model for European biorefineries producing biofuels and chemicals
  Dr K Chong
Applications accepted all year round
Finding the most efficient way to process biomass is becoming increasingly important as competition for feedstocks increases due to the development of the bio-based industry within Europe.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round
Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  University of Nottingham & Rothamsted Research BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership
 University of Nottingham & Rothamsted Research BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership. Four year PhDs available in the research area Industrial Biotechnology & the Bioeconomy – Starting October 2019.
  Development of a process to valorise lignin
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr L Horsfall, Dr D Clarke
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
When fossil fuel reserves are exhausted, essential by-products of refining will no longer be available. Since these aromatic chemicals are used in many processes including the manufacture of plastics, detergents, fertilisers, pharmaceuticals and synthetic fibres it is vital that alternative sources become available.
  Yeast engineering for enhanced triterpenoid production
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser, Dr S Wallace
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This PhD is a joint research project between the Rosser Group (http://rosser.bio.ed.ac.uk) at the University of Edinburgh and Unilever.
  Faculty of Health and Life Sciences
World class teaching facilities with an emphasis on interdisciplinary research and the generation of impact. The University of Liverpool provides one of the largest concentrations of health and life science expertise in the UK.
