  All cellulose and all keratin composites
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr M Ries
Applications accepted all year round
Processing of cellulose with ionic liquids gives the possibility to tap into nature’s most abundant biopolymer unlocking its remarkable natural properties via “green” dissolution routes.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting plant diversity to make a new biomaterials
  Prof S Turner, Prof V Allan, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics synthesised from fossil fuels.
  Optically transparent armour reinforced with microbially-synthesized cellulose nanofibres with self-repair capability
  Dr K Lee
Applications accepted all year round
Microbially-synthesised cellulose nanofibres, more commonly known as bacterial cellulose (BC), is an ultra-pure form of cellulose nanofibers with mechanical performance exceeding that of single E-glass or Kevlar fibre.
  Natural Polymers based Functional Textiles for Engineering & Biological Applications
  Dr S.S Rahatekar, Prof K Koziol
Application Deadline: 30 December 2018
Natural polymers like cellulose, chitin, chitosan, alginate are one of the most abundant and renewable polymer with robust mechanical properties.
  Microwave-assisted pre-treatment for the cost-effective anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic substrates
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising technology for the treatment of organic solid waste and wastewater, as it combines energy recovery with waste treatment.
  Characterisation and engineering of novel and enhanced enzymes for the conversion of lignin biomass to high-value products
  Prof J McGeehan, Dr A Pickford, Dr G Beckham
Application Deadline: 24 February 2019
Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD studentship to commence in October 2019.
  New metalloenzymes for biomass degradation
  Prof P Walton, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Where will out fuels come from in the future and still prevent catastrophic climate change? This question lies at the heart of one of humankind’s major challenges.
  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 agri-diagnostic characterisation of algal cell walls for food and biotechnology use
  Dr J.H. Bothwell
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
The overarching aim of this studentship is to characterise how environmental driven cell wall modifications affect the digestibility of edible seaweeds, a novel and promising food source.
