Prof J Eastoe, Prof P Dowding
29 March 2019
Industry-funded PhD in Colloid and Interface Science in the School of Chemistry, University of Bristol. The aim of the PhD is to study self-assembly of surfactants in non-aqueous solvents under extreme conditions, especially high temperatures as are experienced in modern efficient internal combustion engines.

29 April 2019
Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
Direct Numerical Simulation of Ferrofluid flows
Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round
Ferrofluids (magnetic or superparamagnetic fluids) are a special case of colloidal fluids, where single-domain, nanosize ferromagnetic partices are dispersed in a simple liquid.
