  Materials development for proton exchange membrane based fuel cells and electrolysers
  Prof P Kelly
Application Deadline: 18 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Widescale deployment of fuel cell and electrolyser technologies is hindered by high precious metal loadings. This project will develop novel and advanced materials towards reducing and eliminating precious metal usage.
  Stable Silica Based Strong Acids
  Prof M Davidson, Prof J Scott
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath focuses on developing new molecules, materials, processes and systems from the lab right through to industrial application, with an emphasis on practical sustainability.
  Turning organocatalysts green
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organocatalysis (catalysis using organic molecules) fulfils two green chemistry guidelines1 by avoiding the use of rare metals, and by being catalytic.
  Engineering Design and Catalyst of Novel AEM Water Electrolyser Cell for Green Hydrogen Production for Energy Storage, Renewable Energy – PhD (Funded)
  Dr Xiaohong Li, Dr S Sundaram
Application Deadline: 18 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence in November 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  Catalytic Conversion of Organic Acid By-products from Sustainable Processes
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic (carboxylic) acids are produced as by-products from a range of sustainable processes, e.g. in the aqueous phase arising from CO2 conversion via Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; anaerobic digestate residues; BSF larvae used for organic waste decomposition etc.
  Application of non-thermal plasma-assisted heterogeneous catalysis for the upgrading of methane
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr X Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications
  Dr A Logsdail
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications. PhD Supervisor. Dr. Andrew J. Logsdail http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/481607-logsdail-andrew.
  Flow measurement and visualisation in swirling flows
  Dr S Aleksandrova
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type
