  Application of non-thermal plasma-assisted heterogeneous catalysis for the upgrading of methane
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  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.
  The Retrieval of Atmospheric Isoprene from Satellite INstruments (RAISIN)
  Dr J Harrison, Dr E Marais
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Isoprene is the single most important non‐methane biogenic volatile organic compound (BVOC) in the atmosphere. Emitted from terrestrial vegetation, especially in the tropical forests, its annual emissions comprise nearly half the global BVOC budget.
  Energy system modelling of decentralised energy system transitions: integrating technical, economic and social dimensions
  Dr A Maheri
Application Deadline: 21 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cities and municipalities are crucial areas of focus due to the large and growing populations living in them. But they are also complex dynamic systems, which present challenges to energy system modellers.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  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.
  SLowCat (Securing a sustainable fuel supply through controlled synthesis of low-dimensional catalysts): 3D/2D catalysts for waste streams
  Dr J Wagner
Application Deadline: 16 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. CG-JW-2008. Start date of studentship. 1 October 2020. Closing date of advert. 16 June 2020. Interview date. 6 – 8 July 2020.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
  FULLY FUNDED PHD: Strategies for improved nutritional content and sustainability of milk – a farm to consumer approach
  Dr E Combet Aspray
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

*** TO APPLY, CLICK ’VISIT WEBSITE’ ***. Milk and dairy products are traditionally important in European diets, yet consumption in UK is declining in population subgroups.
  Improving Key Carbon Cycle Processes in Climate Models Using Satellite Observations
  Prof H Boesch
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of man-made emissions on climate is recognised as a, if not the, major global societal issue. To understand the effects of these emissions (and mitigate/adapt to the subsequent changes), it is vital that we have a better understanding of the various couplings and feedbacks within the Earth system.
  Impacts of Climate Change on Ecosystems
  Prof G Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.
  Circular Nutrient Metabolism for Mars Exploration
  Dr V Inglezakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For any travel humans need practical and affordable ways to use resources along the way, rather than carrying everything that might be needed.
  Diamond Formation in Giant Ice Planets
  Dr D Gericke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The internal structure of a planet, that is its radial material and density distribution, is largely defined by hydrostatic equilibrium.
