  Marine micronutrient cycling between sediments and seawater: What controls the concentration and isotopic composition of micronutrient trace metals in the global oceans?
  Prof C.L. Peacock, Dr C Marz
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
WHAT IS THIS PROJECT ABOUT & WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?. In this project you will use new and exciting experimental and analytical approaches to investigate how micronutrients in seawater are taken up into fine-grained reactive minerals in marine sediments.
  Voltammetric detection of trace metals at mercury-free electrodes
  Dr P Salaun, Dr C Mahaffey
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
Our aim is to develop new analytical methods to detect trace metals that are of environmental or industrial concerns. Metals (e.g.
  Biological recovery of metals from lithium ion batteries (LIBs) and synthesis of nanoparticles
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr L Horsfall
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
The resource efficiency Knowledge Transfer Network estimated that world-wide mining activities are responsible for 5% of global carbon dioxide emissions, consume limited fossil fuel resources and produce other damaging ’greenhouse gases’, recovery of metals would reduce the burden on mining and its environmental impact.
  Computer simulation of metal-amyloid interaction and its role in plaque formation
  Dr J Platts
Applications accepted all year round
Alzheimer’s disease is one of the greatest healthcare challenges facing 21st century society. AD is associated with formation of fibrils and plaques in brain tissue that impair proper functioning of neurons.
  Novel bacteria-mediated metal detoxification strategies for bioremediation
  Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Heavy-metal contamination is a major problem worldwide, with fertilizers, pesticides, dyes, paints, and industrial processes such as metal processing and mining contributing to the problem.
  Asymmetric catalysis using environmentally benign calcium complexes
  Dr B Ward
Applications accepted all year round
Dr Ben Ward http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/38527-ward-benjamin is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project ’Asymmetric catalysis using environmentally benign calcium complexes’.
  Heterogeneous Nucleation during Solidification of Light Metals
  Prof I Chang
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for four full time PhD studentships BCAST at Brunel University London beginning 1st February 2018 or later, to be agreed at interview.
  Electric field assisted machining: understanding mechanical (super)plasticity in metals and alloys induced by high-intensity electric fields for improvement of material processing in modern manufacture - Ref: AR1UF2018
  Dr A Roy
Application Deadline: 22 April 2019
The application of electric-field in materials processing will revolutionise future manufacturing. In comparison with conventional thermo-mechanical processing, it is rapid, consumes less energy, has a lower environmental impact and requires less capital investment.
  Precious metals in the fight against cancer
  Dr I Romero-Canelon
Applications accepted all year round
Platinum-based complexes, Cisplatin, Oxaliplatin and Carboplatin, are the most widely used chemotherapeutics, nonetheless there is a major unmet clinical need for new treatments that expand the range of treatable cancers and overcome inherent and acquired platinum resistance.
