  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.
  Synthetic complexes of the histidine brace
  Prof P Walton
Applications accepted all year round
Cellulose is the world’s most abundant biopolymer. 1011 kg is generated every year, equivalent in energy to 670 billion barrels of oil, some 20 times the current annual global oil consumption.
  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.
  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.
  Sustainable Composites for Manufacturing Wind Turbine Blades
  Dr S.S Rahatekar
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
We are pleased to announce PhD studentship project in “Sustainable Composites for Manufacturing Wind Turbine Blades”.
  Sustainable multifunctional polymer foams (ref: SF18/APP/Perry)
  Prof J Perry
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Plumbing the depths of microbial carbon cycling in restored peatlands
  Dr D Kumaresan, Dr D Mauquoy
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The project will be supervised by Dr Deepak Kumaresan of Queen’s University School of Biological Sciences and by Dmitri Mauquoy of the University of Aberdeen’s School of Geosciences.
