  Quantitative Risk Assessment of Mercury in the Aquatic Environments: Linking Mobility, Bioavailability and Bioaccumulation
  Dr G I Paton, Dr L Mbadugha
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD opportunity to work with leading academics at the National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) and Chevron Corporation to address some of the major questions around the environmental implications of decommissioning energy assets at a number of global locations and provide guidance for optimal decommissioning.
  Stratified shear flows in inclined pipes
  Dr Y Tanino, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stably stratified shear flows are ubiquitous in the environment and industrial systems. In the atmosphere such flows are associated with clear air turbulence.
  Listeria monocytogenes in food supply chains – the persistent pathogen (Ref: SF20/APP/FOX)
  Dr E Fox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The foodborne pathogen Listeria monocytogenes is an important contaminant of food products and associated supply chains, and has caused significant outbreaks of disease through consumption of contaminated food products.
  He¯/H¯ High-Current Low-Metal-Contamination Volume-Cusp Ion Source for Semicon Applications
  Prof N Broderick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Implanted Helium or Hydrogen ions are used to exfoliate a thin layer of GaAs, which can be bonded to Silicon to create high quality Silicon-On-Insulator wafers having applications in optoelectronics, microwave electronics, and high temperature electronics [1].
  Structural characterisation of cellular mechanisms for the valorisation of water resources
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Prof A Baker, Dr R Frank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Phosphorus is essential to all living organisms but limited in its biological active form while at the same time representing a major contaminant in waste water.
  Electrochemical Conversion of Captured Carbon Dioxide
  Prof A Cowan
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and utilisation (CCU) is anticipated to be a key technology for enabling industrial decarbonisation. Critical industries such as glass and steel manufacture will continue to be significant emitters of CO2 for the foreseeable future.
  Understanding and dissecting microbial communities with Raman spectroscopy
  Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have shown that it is possible to label bacteria with heavy isotopes of carbon (13C) and nitrogen (15N) and this incorporation within cellular biomass of heavy isotopes has led to significant shifts in certain vibrational modes from amino acids and nucleic acids that can be readily detected with Raman spectroscopy.
  Understanding interactions that determine the fate of microplastics in riverbed environments
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr J M Pearson, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Developing novel methods to track and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments.
