  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
  Redefining Single Use Plastics: Life Cycle Analysis
  Dr RH Rothman, Prof P Styring
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently > 7.3 billion tons of plastic in the Earth System, rising to 40 Bt by 2050. ~10 Mt of plastics reach the oceans every year; 12 Bt are projected to be in landfill by 2050.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
  Using psychology to tackle the problem of waste plastic
  Dr T Webb, Dr C Wood
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.
  Application of digital holography for underwater measurements
  Dr T Thevar, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Underwater digital holography is a powerful technique to study marine organisms and marine pollution (e.g. micro-plastics), marine evolution, etc.
  Environmentally friendly thermosets: renewable curing agents for thermally reprocessable epoxy vitrimers
  Dr A Sutti
Application Deadline: 7 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project offers an excellent opportunity for a motivated student to work in a rapidly growing area of material science and acquire valuable experience and knowledge in organic and polymer chemistry, including various laboratory techniques and characterization tools.
  PhD Studentship in Rapid Ionic-liquid Screening for Enhanced Recycling Screening (RISERS)
  Dr A Brandt-Talbot, Prof P Fennell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are inviting applications of motivated candidates for a PhD studentship in the exciting global challenge of ‘Advanced plastic recycling’.
  Flow synthesis of microporous organic polymers
  Dr S Lau
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD project is available to scale up the production of advanced polymers through the Flow synthesis of porous organic polymers.
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
