  Molecular modelling insights into the performance of polymeric coatings containing active corrosion inhibitors
  Dr F Siperstein, Prof X Zhou, Dr C Avendano
Application Deadline: 27 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary project which aims to, for the first time, connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of protective coatings and nanocomposite materials.
  Electrochemical mechanisms of coating failure
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr N Stevens
Application Deadline: 27 April 2020

  Continuous Manufacturing with Carbon Nanoreactor Supported Nanoparticle Catalysts for the Self-Optimisation of Heterogenous Reduction Reactions
  Dr T Chamberlain, Dr R Bourne
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. This industrially sponsored project, between Dr Thomas Chamberlain and Dr Richard Bourne (University of Leeds) and Dr Kevin Leslie and Dr Graeme Clemens (Process Chemistry at AstraZeneca), will enable high throughput, flow hydrogenation at scale enabling robust, continuous manufacture.
  Nanoscale transport mechanisms in zeolites and metal-organic frameworks
  Prof R Brydson, Dr S Collins
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous materials, with pores less than 2 nm in size, are central materials technologies for chemical separations and catalysis and, increasingly, show promise for energy storage applications.
  Additive Manufacture of Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces using Novel High Performing Polymer “Inks”
  Prof D Irvine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Title. Additive Manufacture of Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces using Novel High Performing Polymer “Inks”. Topic. The production of Novel Devices Incorporating Bacterial Biofilm Resistant Surfaces via Additive Manufacturing Techniques.
  Designing Supports for Artificial Photosynthetic Catalysts
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic catalysts are being developed that can convert carbon dioxide into useful chemicals. However, the catalysts’ function depends critically on attachment to solid semi-conductor surfaces.
  Light Actuated Microfluidic Devices for Medical Diagnosis
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to control the motion of colloids within microfluidic devices has significant potential for applications in healthcare diagnostics, where colloids are used to find and concentrate cells and biological molecules for analysis.
  High-Performance Compressed Straw Board (HPCSB): A New Generation of Building Materials
  Dr S Ghaffar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to introduce a greatly improved, lightweight variant of Compressed Straw Board (CSB) for the construction industry, strong enough to accommodate structural loads both in tension and under compression.
  3D laser beam shaping
  Dr R Carter, Dr J D Shephard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Combining 2D beam shaping elements (including refractive and diffractive elements) with bespoke focussing optics to shape a laser beam though the entire focal volume rather than in a single focal plane.
  Mechanisms and applications of collisions at liquid surfaces
  Prof K G McKendrick
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will study the dynamics of scattering at the gas-liquid interface. You will improve fundamental understanding of mechanisms of collisions at atmospherically relevant surfaces and explore the exploitation of this insight through new methods to probe the surfaces of technologically interesting materials.
