  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.
  Circular economy and resource efficiency principles applied to the development of a sustainable innovative building material.
  Research Group: Institute for Infrastructure & Environment
  Dr G Medero, Dr M Sutman, Dr B Suryanto
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The construction and demolition sector is the largest contributor of waste globally. In the UK alone, over 30% of the UK’s landfill waste and 45% of total carbon emissions come from construction and demolition.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  Low-Carbon Repair Materials for the Conservation of Post-War Listed Buildings
  Prof A Klemm, Dr D McCormick, Dr P Baker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

SCEBE-19-005. Our cultural heritage is being destroyed faster today than at any time in the past. An understanding of the basic processes causing deterioration of artefacts is urgently needed.
  QUADRAT DTP: Investigation of the growth of molds (fungi and bacteria) in bio-based materials made from agro-waste food
  Dr M Sonebi, Dr Q Gan
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The production of insulating materials for buildings obtained from the valorization of agro-resources is a promising way both in terms of ecology and hydrothermal performances of these composites.
  Augmenting indoor and outdoor building environment by optimising the effect of urban heat island (UHI) (Advert Reference: RDF20/EE/ABE/ZINGRE)
  Dr K Zingre
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The urban and indoor thermal environments are complex outcomes of a number of factors including urban morphology, building materials, weather conditions, etc.
  Discovery of new transparent conducting materials
  Prof M J Rosseinsky, Dr J Alaria, Dr M Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

This opportunity will remain open until filled. An opportunity for a 3.5 year PhD position supported by NSG Group towards the discovery of new transparent conducting materials.
  First principles modelling of defects in solar absorber materials
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr K McKenna
Application Deadline: 21 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of materials are emerging as promising candidates to replace silicon in the next generation of solar cells. They offer the prospect of high efficiency, low cost and flexibility allowing for their incorporation into building materials for example.
  Natural porous vibro-acoustic media
