  Optically transparent armour reinforced with microbially-synthesized cellulose nanofibres with self-repair capability
  Dr K Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbially-synthesised cellulose nanofibres, more commonly known as bacterial cellulose (BC), is an ultra-pure form of cellulose nanofibers with mechanical performance exceeding that of single E-glass or Kevlar fibre.
  Synthetic complexes of the histidine brace
  Prof P Walton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellulose is the world’s most abundant biopolymer. 1011 kg is generated every year, equivalent in energy to 670 billion barrels of oil, some 20 times the current annual global oil consumption.
  PhD Studentship – Reducing the physiological burden of individual protective clothing with nanocellulose
  Dr K Lee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Individual protective equipment (IPE) is used to protect personnel from the effects of chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) warfare agents.
  Development of an innovative techno-economic model for European biorefineries producing biofuels and chemicals
  Dr K Chong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Finding the most efficient way to process biomass is becoming increasingly important as competition for feedstocks increases due to the development of the bio-based industry within Europe.
  Sustainable multifunctional polymer foams (ref: SF18/APP/Perry)
  Prof J Perry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chitin is the second most abundant biopolymer after cellulose it being found in the exoskeletons of insects and other invertebrates as well as providing structural rigidity to fungi.
  Using Tribological Principles to Optimise Grinding Process for the Manufacturing of MFC

PhD Type

During the manufacturing process of Micro-Fibrillated Cellulose (MFC), grinding media (beads of mm/cm diameter) are used to break down pulp into MFC.
  Fully Funded Studentships on 4 year MRes + PhD at EPSRC CDT in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC CDT in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC) at the University of Cambridge invites applications from top-class independent-thinking students for its multi-facted MRes + PhD programme in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
  Chitin valorisation via enzymatic deacetylation
  Prof D Campopiano
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

A 4 year Industrial PhD studentship is available in the group of Professor Dominic Campopiano in the School of Chemistry, The University of Edinburgh.
  Application of Plastic Degrading Enzymes for Synthesis of Esters and Amides
  Dr A Carnell
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes have evolved to work under mutually compatible conditions for multi-step synthesis. We have been developing new enzymes for conversion of biomass-derived intermediates to biodegradable plastics precursors.
  Novel catalytic materials for cascade chemical transformations.
  Dr C Parlett, Dr A Garforth
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The chemical industry is highly reliant on heterogeneous catalysis, underpinning 90% of all global chemical production, with the UK a key contributor to the development of catalytic materials and processes.
