  Next generation methods for the isolation of plastic-degrading bacteria and fungi.
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  The microbial ‘plastisphere’ – Characterisation of plastic-associated microbial communities in natural and engineered environments
  Dr G Lear
Applications accepted all year round
We are currently seeking a PhD student with interests in microbiology, molecular biology and the environment to conduct research into the microbial degradation of waste plastics.
  Depolymerisation of real-world plastic waste
  Research Group: Plastics
  Prof A Dove, Prof S J Harrad
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Plastics are an integral and important part of the global economy and will continue to be critical in addressing the ongoing demands of our society.

  Determining the Spatial and Temporal Distribution of Macro- and Micro-plastics in Soil and Their Impact on Soil Function
  Dr E Pagaling, Prof L Dawson, Dr S Devalla, Dr R Prabhu
Application Deadline: 5 April 2019
Current global production of plastics has reached over 300 million metric tons and is predicted to reach 1200 million metric tons by 2050.
  PhD Project: AI for improving Information Workflows. (PhD Computer Science)
  Dr C Kambhampati, Dr Y Cheng
Application Deadline: 1 April 2019
Plastic has changed the way we live, but the time has come to address the way in which it is used and disposed of. We urgently need new ways of thinking about the problems of plastic use.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
  Toward a Circular Economy for Plastics: Advanced Imaging and Numerical Modelling of Segregation and Transport of Plastics in Fluidised Beds
  Research Group: Plastics
  Dr C Windows-Yule, Prof J Seville
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Plastic waste is one of the great environmental challenges of our time. Recently, a promising new technique has been developed, which converts waste plastics into petrochemical feedstock by injecting them into a gas-fluidised bed of heated particles.
