Removing organic contaminants from drinking water; testing the effectiveness of a novel water treatment technology

  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
Although the United Nations General Assembly, through resolution 64/292, explicitly recognized the human right to water and acknowledged that clean drinking water is essential to the realisation of all human rights, still around 663 million people worldwide lack access to an improved water source, making this one of the biggest environmental problems of our time.

Investigating the role of the biofilm in waste water treatment plants as a reservoir for antimicrobial resistance

Ref. SHLS20023 Spencer. Background. By 2050, 10 million premature deaths could occur annually as the result of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). An important route of AMR into the environment is via the sewerage network where key control points are the wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs). Read more

Water Chemistry: Understanding the role of Nitrogen in Disinfection By-Products

This exciting fully funded PhD, with an enhanced stipend of £19,000 per annum, will deliver insights into the formation of nitrogenous disinfection by products to allow their concentrations to be minimised through assessment of source water nitrogen and its removal through treatment. Read more

Integrating climate risk to reservoir water quality into water infrastructure planning

This PhD offers a world-class environment and highly competitive compensation (see funding). It is ideally suited to a motivated individual with a strong quantitative background, who is keen to develop a range of advanced technical and transferable skills that are highly sought after both in industry and academia.

Non-tuberculous mycobacteria: From water source to lung

An exciting collaborative research project between the UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) and the Department of Global Health and Infection at the University of Sussex, UK. Read more

Atmospheric transport and orographic rainfall of microplastics

Microplastics are transported in the natural environment by a wide range of processes and as a consequence are found in all environments, from the highest mountains to the deepest oceans, in urban environments and polar ice caps. Read more

Coatings of Anammox Bacteria for Nitrogen Removal from Contaminated Water

Nitrogen, in the forms of ammonium and nitrates ions, is a serious problem in the UK and elsewhere in water being discharged into the environment because it can harm aquatic ecology and detrimentally affect human health. Read more

GREENCDT Application of advanced simulation tools for multiphysics evaluation of the SMR cores

This project will primarily be based at The University of Liverpool. Nuclear energy is currently the only very low carbon technology which can deliver energy 24/7 on demand which will be a key for the successful transformation into a future net-zero society. Read more
