  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.
  Durability analysis in hydrogen fuel cell vehicles
  Dr M Aleyaasin, Dr A ALIAKBAR JAMSHIDI FAR
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project , the heavy duty hybrid electric vehicles is considered for the investigation. The propulsion in these trucks is based on parallel operation of a bank of lithium batteries and series of hydrogen fuel cells.
  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.
  Towards a self-healing hydrogen-powered fuel-cell: Fully funded PhD studentship in Engineering Department at Lancaster University, funded by the Leverhulme Centre for Material Social Futures Research and Engineering Department.
  Dr H Lin, Dr R Dawson, Prof M Büscher
Application Deadline: 1 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leverhulme PhD Training Centre for Material Social Futures brings together concepts and approaches from across the disciplines to help produce futures that people want and the world needs.
  Embedded optical sensors for polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells
  Dr E Brightman, Dr Y Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalyst durability is currently one of the biggest challenges limiting widespread commercialization of polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cells (PEMFC).
  Enhancing stability of biocatalyst for fuel cells and bioelectrocatalysis
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in biotechnology over the last two decades has greatly increased the use of biocatalyst in the industrial production of fine chemicals.
  Cutting off the fuel supply to calcium pumps in pancreatic cancer: a novel therapeutic strategy
  Dr J Bruce, Prof K Williams, Dr A P Gilmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Rationale. Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC) has the poorest survival and limited treatment options. Therefore, the search for novel therapeutic targets and drugs designed to selectively kill PDAC cells must remain a central research strategy.
  Biogas enrichment and nutrient recovery from wastewater using bio-electrochemical systems
  Dr M Goel, Dr A Asthana
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrated biorefinery is emerging, sustainable, energy producing wastewater treatment, which can also provide a renewable source of various useful products, such as biohydrogen, bioelectricity, nutrients and other biobased products.
  Instant-on solid oxide cells for hydrogen production and power generation
  Dr D Neagu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

If humanity were to replace fossil fuels, it would need to find a way to store vast amounts of renewable energy cheaply for use when the sun is not shining or when the winds are still.
  Metabolic reprogramming in cancer: starving tumors of essential nutrients to promote cell death
  Dr S Papa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All the cells in our bodies are programmed to die. As they get older, our cells accumulate toxic molecules that make them sick. In response, they eventually break down and die, clearing the way for new, healthy cells to grow.
  Diffusion mechanisms in energy materials using polarised neutrons
  Prof J Goff, Dr D Voneshen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scientific aims. Understanding diffusion is of crucial importance for the operation of fuel cells and battery materials.
  Metal-nitrogen-hydrogen materials for solid state electrolytes
  Dr J Makepeace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from enthusiastic and motivated students are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.
  Rewiring Bacterial Metabolism through Assembly of Biological nanowires (CLARKETU20VC)
  Dr T Clarke, Prof D J Richardson, Prof J Butt
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BACKGROUND. In a microbial fuel cell, respiring bacteria pass electrons generated during metabolism to an anode, which generates electric current.
  Multi-objective Optimisation of Hybrid Renewable Energy Systems
  Dr A Maheri, Dr S Sriramula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In planning and sizing of hybrid energy systems the conflicting objectives cost and performance are to be optimised simultaneously via a multi-objective optimisation process [1-2].
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Computational Design of Sustainable 2D Catalysts
  Dr M Sacchi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysis is ubiquitous in chemistry and biology. Catalysts allows chemical transformations to proceed at a faster rate by lowering the overall energy demand for several energy-intensive chemical mechanism, such as those involving covalent bond breaking.
