  Understanding cellulose synthesis in plants
  Prof S Turner, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics derived from fossil fuels. One possibility is to develop novel plastics based on polymers from plants.
  PHD in Miniaturised Cellulose Nanomaterial-based Antennas and Arrays Design and Performance Evaluation for Internet of Things applications. SEBE0029
  Dr C H See, Dr M Dorris, Dr D Sun, Prof H Yu
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advances in wireless networks and electronics have led to the emergence of Wireless Sensor networks (WSNs), which are considered to be one of the most important technologies that can revolutionize healthcare systems.
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Coffee waste metabolism by Extremophiles for the Bioethanol production (Ref: SF20/APP/MUNOZ)
  Dr J Munoz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Due to an increasing demand of fossil fuels, the search for alternative bioenergy has gained much attention from the scientific community and the general population.
  Fabrication of tuneable biomaterial composites (Ref: SF20/APP/ZHANG)
  Dr M Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cellulose (BC) is a polysaccharide hydrogel with many fascinating material properties (e.g. High tensile strength, high water holding capacity, biocompatibility, etc.).
  Developing bio-augmented Concrete
  Prof M Fan
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brunel University London (BUL) is recruiting to EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships effective 1 October 2020.
  Computational Enzyme Design for the Development of Biotechnology to Create a new generation of living buildings (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SINGH)
  Dr W Singh
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will involve the following topics. Plastic breakdown. Computational enzyme design to suggest mutants which may improve the catalytic efficiency of PETase and MHETase for polyethylene terephthalate hydrolysis.
  Sustainable multifunctional polymer foams (Ref: SF20/APP/PERRY1)
  Prof J Perry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chitin is the second most abundant biopolymer after cellulose it being found in the exoskeletons of insects and other invertebrates as well as providing structural rigidity to fungi.
  Development of a bio-based membrane for application as weather barrier in the building industry
  Prof P Blanchet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Weather barriers are membranes used in the building wall envelopes. Their function is to prevent water (and wind) from entering the vulnerable sections of walls and roofs, while allowing moisture to escape to the outside.
  Fully Funded Studentships on 4 year MRes + PhD at EPSRC CDT in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC CDT in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC) at the University of Cambridge invites applications from top-class independent-thinking students for its multi-facted MRes + PhD programme in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.

  Behaviour of high strength steel structures in fire
  Dr K Cashell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High strength steel is an increasingly popular material choice for civil engineering structures owing to its high performance and ability to reduce the overall material usage in a project.
