  The long and winding roads of the cell
  Prof M Leake, Dr C MacDonald
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Intracellular membrane trafficking is essential for many cellular processes and its impairment leads to over 80 major human diseases.
  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Recycling of thermoset resins via the development of a solvent trigger de-curing system.
  Dr G Durand, Ms S Walker
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Most composites use thermosetting resins (>50%), there is currently no commercial recycling process for thermoset composites.
  Sustainable Lithium Mining and Recycling using Membrane Technology
  Dr Y Huang
Application Deadline: 11 November 2019
With continual technological advancements in mobile devices and electric cars, the global demand for lithium has quickly outpaced the rate at which it can be mined or recycled.
  Recycling textile fibers into carbon-based electrochemical devices
  Dr E Randviir
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. ER-2018-PhD-1. Project Summary. Around 300,000 tonnes of textile waste is sent to landfill in the UK each year, therefore new methods of recycling end of life textiles are required to.
  Recycling CO2 for production of renewable fuels (Advert Reference: RDF19/EE/MCE/RASUL)
  Dr S Rasul
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Energy storage is one of the major challenges regarding renewable energy systems due to their intermittent nature. One of the practical solutions is to store renewable energy in chemical bonds (high energy density fuels) as nature does in photosynthesis process.
  Laser studies of free-radical recycling reactions in the atmosphere and biofuel oxidation
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard
Applications accepted all year round
This is a project to study gas-phase reactions of organic peroxyl radicals (RO2) in lab-based experiments at York & elsewhere. These reactions control radical propagation and termination rates in low to moderate temperature conditions; RO2 are therefore key intermediates in biofuel combustion and atmospheric oxidation.
  Li-ion Batteries; Recovery and Reconditioning
  Prof E Kendrick
Applications accepted all year round
A fully funded 4-year Faraday Institution studentship (PhD) is available in the School of Metallurgy and Materials, at the University of Birmingham under the supervision of Prof Emma Kendrick.
  Redefining Single Use Plastics: Life Cycle Analysis
  Dr RH Rothman, Prof P. Styring
Application Deadline: 23 January 2019
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.
  New Sustainable Methods in Remanufacturing Thermoset Polymers to Inherently Safe Materials (RDF19/HLS/AS/UNTHANK)
  Dr M Unthank
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Our group at Northumbria University in Newcastle are committed to developing new macromolecules, polymers and chemical processes, and implementing these to solve real-life problems that impact the environment and world we live in.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
