  Soil microbial communities and biodegradable plastic
  Dr A Blaud, Prof I Singleton
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is a major problem across the globe, affecting oceans, freshwater, soil and organisms. There is an urgent need to reduce plastic pollution.
  Disappearing into thin air? Understanding degradation of plastic polymers in soils and freshwaters
  Dr B Surridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic pollution is one of the most pervasive threats facing global ecosystems. However, very little is known about the processes and governing factors that control the persistence of plastic polymers within environmental matrices such as soil or freshwater.
  Using psychology to tackle the problem of waste plastic
  Dr C Wood, Dr T Webb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste plastic can have a devastating effect on the environment, threatening the biodiversity of our oceans and introducing micro-plastics into the food chain.
  Production of value-added chemicals and/or fuels from plastic wastes by unconventional technologies
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are the preferred materials in many important areas, such as packaging, beverage, construction, automobiles, medicine, etc., owing to their low cost, easy manufacture, and physicochemical properties.
  3D Print and Additive Manufacturing of Wax and Plastic Injection Moulds.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Understanding interactions that determine the fate of microplastics in riverbed environments
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr J M Pearson, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Developing novel methods to track and analyse microplastics. Design mesocosms to study the behaviour of microplastics in riverbed sediments.
  Engineering Enzymes to address global plastic pollution problems
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  PhD in Depolymerisation of Plastic Waste
  Prof A Dove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded PhD studentship is available in the group of Prof. Andrew Dove at the University of Birmingham (group website. http://www.dovegrouplab.com).
  Ph.D. in the preparation and characterization of organic materials for plastic electronics
  Prof W Skene
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A financed Ph.D. position is available in the research group of Photophysical Characterization of Conjugated Materials at the Université de Montréal.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. The process conditions of pyrolysis can alter the proportions of gas, solid and liquid products.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Modelling Creep-Fatigue Damage and Life Prediction for Gas Turbine Rotors
  Prof W Sun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current market conditions are such that combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plants are now considering double two-shift operation, so potentially accruing upwards of 600 starts per year.
