  Co-processing of biomass and fossil fuel as feedstock to the fluid catalytic cracking uni
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr Y John, Dr R Patel, Prof I Mujtaba
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The simulation model of Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) unit and many other refinery processes maximise the yields of fuels such as gasoline, diesel, propylene and minimise the yields of CO2.
  Decision Support Systems for Sustainable Net-Zero Energy Transition, Planning and Management in the Global South (Developing Economy)
  Prof T Olaniyi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy is a universal currency and is considered in modern economic concept as fuel, measured by the capability to do work or the conversion of the capability to do work into motion, which embraces physical, environmental and socio-economic disciplines and pedagogies.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications
  Dr A Logsdail

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £850m a year.
  Modelling and optimising microbial nutrient cycling for the promotion of a circular bioeconomy
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although microbial communities play major biogeochemical roles in all ecosystems, driving carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling, they remain only crudely represented in existing biogeochemical models of these systems.
  Techno‐Economic Impact of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS)
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr N Rahmanian, Dr A Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The reduction of emissions of greenhouse gases is agreed in November 2016 in the Paris international agreement (IEA Dec. 2016). The agreement is expected to create a transformative change in the energy sector to combat climate change.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
  Rational Design of Stable Electrocatalysts on Corrosion Free Carbon Supports: Improving Fuel Cell Performance
  Prof J Macpherson, Prof M E Newton, Dr C Dancer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two of the main global challenges that humanity faces, climate change and the depletion of traditional fossil fuel energy resources, are intrinsically connected.
  Enhancing the conductivity of the solid electrolyte Ba7Nb4MoO20 for application in intermediate temperature fuel cells
  Prof A McLaughlin, Dr E Wildman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency and low emission of pollutants. In a fuel cell the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water and electricity and as such provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
  Finite element analysis of energy diaphragm walls
  Dr Y Rui, Prof A Ivanovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2008, the UK government set an ambitious target for 2050 with an emphasis on reducing UK greenhouse gas emissions. Hence, the development of renewable energy technologies is therefore imperative to ensure the completion of this target.
  Finite element analysis of energy tunnels

  On-board Integrated Chargers and Battery Management Systems for Electrical Vehicles (EVs)
  Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the increasing population and environmental constraints on the conventional transportation system, alternative cleaner and sustainable transportation systems are becoming very demanding.
  Sustainability assessment & Circularity modelling of a new advanced biofuel production scheme.
