  New light-responsive electrolytes for energy conversion
  Dr A Martinez-Felipe, Mr J Cavanagh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project, we will develop new electrolytes with high ionic conductivity to increase the efficiency of fuel cells and batteries.
  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.
  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.

  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.
  Realising Industry 4.0: Joining Machine Learning with Additive Manufacture for Design Optimisation (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Prof M Dargusch
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Industry 4.0 is a group of disruptive technologies that is transforming manufacturing and has the potential to revolutionise the manufacture of a range of high value products leading to significantly improved more efficient and more sustainable designs.
