  Combustion Technologies for Hydrogen Carrier Fuels in Internal Combustion Engines.
  Dr P Lappas
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking to recruit one Ph.D. candidate to undertake high impact research. The research program is driven by the potential to greatly reduce carbon emissions from internal combustion engines using hydrogen carrier fuels such as ammonia.
  Zero emissions power plants through combustion optimisation
  Prof M Pourkashanian
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
The combustion of fossil fuels for power generation will remain to play a significant role to meet the increasing energy demand in the foreseeable future.
  Design of an Algae-bacteria Scrubber for Combustion Gases
  Dr J Pandhal
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
This project aims to design a photo-bioreactor based biological scrubber for cleaning biomass flue gas. The goal is to remove pollutants, so the gas can be used downstream in horticulture.
  Characterization of Some Biofuels from Waste Resources for Diesel Engine Applications.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Research Institute Reference Number. OA-2018-2-PhD. Project Summary. Biofuels such as alcohols and biodiesel from waste restaurant foods and agricultural residues have prospects as alternative source of energy for diesel engines in ensuring a low carbon environment.
  Computational design and development of rotating heat pipes for gas turbine cooling
  Dr C Abeykoon, Prof A Turan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Gas turbines are critical elements for power generation and transportation systems. They transform the chemical energy contained in the fuel by combustion, into mechanical energy.
  Laser studies of free-radical recycling reactions in the atmosphere and biofuel oxidation
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard
Applications accepted all year round
This is a project to study gas-phase reactions of organic peroxyl radicals (RO2) in lab-based experiments at York & elsewhere. These reactions control radical propagation and termination rates in low to moderate temperature conditions; RO2 are therefore key intermediates in biofuel combustion and atmospheric oxidation.
  Simulation of External Fire Spread Mechanisms in High Rise Buildings - Ref: WMUF2018
  Prof W Malalasekera
Applications accepted all year round
Very recently the UK has seen one of the most disastrous fires in history, the Grenfell Tower fire, in London. The loss of life and immense suffering caused by this fire is inconceivable.
  Optimization of hybrid heavy-duty diesel vehicle running on biofuels from waste resources.
  Dr O Kuti
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. OA-2018-1-PhD. Project Summary. In achieving an ultra-low carbon environment, the UK and other countries have proposed a future ban on vehicles operating solely on internal combustion engines (ICE).
  Novel biosynthetic fuel development: An approach on fuel design (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/AZIMOV)
  Dr U Azimov
Applications accepted all year round
The aim of this project is to experimentally design novel biosynthetic fuels and investigate their stability, combustion, and emission characteristics and their effects on regulated, unregulated and GHG emissions in order to improve the engine performance and achieve complex reduction in exhaust gas emissions.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Advanced computer modelling of turbine stator well flow and heat transfer
  Research Group: Aerodynamics and Environmental Flow
  Prof J Chew
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019
This research will investigate the complex flow and heat transfer occurring in gas turbines using advanced computational fluid dynamics, and aiming to improve current design methods and understanding in industry.
