  Observing reactions at working catalyst surfaces with X-ray spectroscopy
  Dr R Weatherup
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Catalysis is critical to the efficient conversion of raw materials into the chemicals needed for products such as detergents, soaps, pharmaceuticals, and plastics.
  Understanding Catalyst Evolution through In Situ XPS
  Dr Alex Walton, Prof C Hardacre
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The Fischer-Tropsch (FT) process is a catalytic reaction which takes syngas (a mixture of carbon monoxide and hydrogen) and converts it into long-chain hydrocarbons which can be used as fuel or precursors for the chemical industry.
  Turning organocatalysts green
  Dr A Routledge, Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round
Organocatalysis (catalysis using organic molecules) fulfils two green chemistry guidelines1 by avoiding the use of rare metals, and by being catalytic.
  Informatics-driven Catalyst Design towards Enhanced Catalysts for Radiolabelling Applications
  Prof W Kerr, Dr M Reid
Applications accepted all year round
A fully funded, industry-linked PhD Studentship is available in the Department of Pure and Applied Chemistry at the University of Strathclyde under the supervision of Professor William J.
  Accelerating Heterogeneous Catalytic Reactions Using Renewable Energy
  Dr S Freakley
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
The Department of Chemistry at the University of Bath invites applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round
"“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
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
  Biomass/CO2 Conversion to Chemicals and Energy
  Dr X Wang, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Fossil fuels coal, petroleum crude oil and natural gas, as sources of thermal energy, fuels and chemicals, have been predominant in the world’s energy supply.
  High-purity hydrogen production through a hybrid plasma-catalytic process
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
The water gas shift (WGS) is a key reaction in the production of high purity hydrogen both for the use of the latter in refineries and as fuel in fuel cell applications.
  Hybrid Catalytic Systems for Sustainable Chemical Processing
  Dr X Wang, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Catalysis plays a critical role in modern society, where 90% of all chemical processes involve heterogeneous catalysts. Nevertheless, heterogeneous and biological catalysis is still considered as one of the top 24 challenges in chemistry when asking “what’s next”.
