  Novel biosynthetic fuel development: An approach on fuel design (Advert Reference: SF18/MCE/AZIMOV)
  Dr U Azimov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Multi-scale Characterisation of Residual Stress in AGR Fuel Cladding
  Dr H Coules
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Residual stresses in the stainless steel cladding of spent Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor (AGR) nuclear fuel elements affect their behaviour during storage.
  New responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells have high efficiency, generate low levels of emissions, and can consume renewable sources, in combination with energy vectors, making them excellent candidates as for alternative power production technologies.
  Materials development for proton exchange membrane based fuel cells and electrolysers
  Prof P Kelly
Application Deadline: 18 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Widescale deployment of fuel cell and electrolyser technologies is hindered by high precious metal loadings. This project will develop novel and advanced materials towards reducing and eliminating precious metal usage.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  Real-time control of solid fuel upgrading through innovative torrefaction process
  Dr J Li, Dr E Ventura-Medina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass residues and waste, have a great potential to deliver a significant contribution to the primary energy demand, with the aim of meeting low carbon objectives.
