  4 year PhD Studentship in ‘Investigating the performance of solid walls with water-repellent surface treatments’
  Dr H Altamirano, Ms V Marincioni
Application Deadline: 28 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solid-wall buildings account for around a quarter of the UK building stock. The heat loss associated with solid walls is among the highest across all wall constructions in the UK, but little has been done to improve their thermal performance; 91% of solid wall dwellings are yet to be insulated.
  LNG sloshing and Leidenfrost droplet dynamics – modelling gas-cushioned liquid-solid impacts with phase change
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with the walls of its containing tank and the impact of droplets with very hot surfaces are two examples of liquid-solid impacts in which the liquid may be close to thermodynamic equilibrium with the surrounding gas/vapour.
  Metal-nitrogen-hydrogen materials for solid state electrolytes
  Dr J Makepeace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from enthusiastic and motivated students are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.
  Discovery of chemical and biological tools to probe hypoxic solid tumours
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr J Elies Gomez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge in cancer therapy is to develop therapeutic agents that selectively target tumour cells. One avenue towards the development of more selective cancer therapies is to exploit the unique physiological properties of solid tumours using prodrug approaches.
  Molecular Modelling and Simulation for Solid Adsorbents for Industrial Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. In addition to solvent based carbon capture, solid adsorbents for carbon capture have attracted researchers’ interest.
  Instant-on solid oxide cells for hydrogen production and power generation
  Dr D Neagu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

If humanity were to replace fossil fuels, it would need to find a way to store vast amounts of renewable energy cheaply for use when the sun is not shining or when the winds are still.
  Structure-property relationship in solid tumours – An integrated experimental and computational approach towards more effective early cancer diagnosis
  Dr Y Chen, Prof RL Reuben
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological tissue often has unique three-dimensional hierarchical microstructures and morphologies, constantly evolving through their development and patho-physiological stages.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In polymer extrusion, the behaviour of the flow of materials along the screw shows highly variable nature as it is gradually changing from solid to molten state.
  Enhancing the conductivity of the solid electrolyte Ba7Nb4MoO20 for application in intermediate temperature fuel cells
  Prof A McLaughlin, Dr E Wildman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fuel cells convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency and low emission of pollutants. In a fuel cell the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water and electricity and as such provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
  iCASE: Formulation Behaviour at Complex Liquid-Solid Interfaces
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Dr F Siperstein, Dr A Patti
Application Deadline: 28 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully-funded iCASE PhD position in Formulation Behaviour at Complex Liquid-Solid Interfaces is available in the Multiscale Modelling Group at the University of Manchester, working with Dr Flor Siperstein and Dr Alessandro Patti, in collaboration with Dr Breanndán Ó Conchúir from IBM Research UK.
  Next generation solid-state sodium electrolytes for battery and sensor applications
  Prof P S Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is on the development of sodium-based solid-state electrolytes for re-chargeable battery and sensor applications.
  Process Simulation and Technical Evaluation of Solid Adsorbents for Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. In addition to solvent based carbon capture, solid adsorbents for carbon capture have attracted researchers’ interest.
  Developing light-driven molecular switches for use on solid substrates
  Dr R J Maurer, Dr D Duncan
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Designing purpose built molecular devices is one of the ultimate goals of nanotechnology, potentially permitting mechanical control at the sub-nanometer scale.
  Experimental Discovery of New Framework Materials as Ionic Conductors
  Prof M J Rosseinsky, Dr J Claridge, Dr LJ Hardwick
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

New inorganic materials are needed to advance technologies such as batteries for electric vehicles and grid storage, and to develop basic science.
  Local Tracking of Single Ions Dynamics at Solid-Liquid Interfaces
  Dr K Voitchovsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ions are everywhere in nature and technology. They play a crucial role in countless processes, from the salt we use in food to keeping the electrostatic balance in our bodies.
