  Towards the predictive design of PAEK-based polymers - from fundamental polymer physics to advanced materials applications
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr J Mattsson, Dr P Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is focused on developing a predictive framework to control glass-formation and crystallization in polymers, with a particular focus on the efficient design of high performance polymers within the Poly Aryl Ether Ketone (PAEK) family.
  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.
  Characterising sequence-controlled polymers in real space: polymer genome through submolecular imaging
  Prof L Barner
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD student is needed for a project focused on developing an approach to the characterisation of sequence-controlled polymers (SCPs) by direct spatial investigation using high resolution scanning probe microscopy.
  Programming and Real-Time Monitoring Light Degradability of Polymers
  Dr H Frisch, Dr B Poad
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic polymers are arguably the class of man-made materials that have most shaped the last century. However, the majority of polymers results from radical polymerization techniques yielding all carbon backbones, which critically prevent their degradation and pose a vital threat to the future of our planet.
  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
  Polymers for treating amoebic infections in India
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amoebic parasitic infections are widespread in the tropics. Amoebic dysentery can be fatal if the parasite progresses to the brain.
  Microporous polymers for energy and sustainability
  Dr R Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous polymers are a class of porous material made from organic building blocks possessing high surface areas and chemical stability.
  3D and 4D Printing of Functional Polymers: Adding Function to Printed Objects
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will transform commodity polymers used in 3D printing to control their properties for advanced applications. The student will utilise a number of techniques to synthesise and characterize the polymers to create new materials with interesting properties.
  Programming Polymers
  Dr H Frisch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD position on the interface of organic and polymer chemistry available in the Soft Matter. Materials laboratory located at Queensland University of Technology (Brisbane, Australia).
  Formulation of poorly-soluble drugs
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poorly water-soluble drugs is an important class of pharmaceutical compounds that are finding numerous applications for the therapy of different pathological conditions.
  Characterisation of the fracture resistance of polymers used in fibre-reinforced composites and its rate dependence
  Dr G Alfano, Dr G Fern
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brunel University London (BUL) is recruiting to EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) PhD studentships effective 1 October 2020.
  Towards the next generation of polymers
  Dr E Leitao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon-based polymers are ubiquitous. From textiles, to electronics, to packaging, to banknotes, to structural materials, we see and use these daily.
  Computational and Polymer Sciences to Engineer Microbial Physiology
  Dr S Jabbari, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling and statistical inference are key tools in understanding the life sciences. In this project, we will develop differential equation models and apply statistical inference techniques to understand how polymers can be engineered to be of practical use in microbiology.
  Direct numerical simulation of polymeric-fluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymers and turbulence are two of the most difficult problems in statistical physics. In the past, the study of polymeric liquids was divided in two categories.
  Investigating and Improving the Thermal Degradation Pathways of Polymer and Composites
  Dr F Clegg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Throughout the world people are injured and killed in fires, and many suffer from the effects of inhaling toxic fumes and smoke.
