  Development of highly stable porous composite membranes for separation of greenhouse gases
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Prof S Rimmer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers, which are known as secondary building units or SBUs.
  Serial Crystallography for Materials Science: A New Route to Structural Characterisation of MOFs and other Microcrystalline Materials
  Prof L Brammer
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Detailed structural characterisation by X-ray diffraction underpins the materials chemistry. Accurate structure is a foundation for understanding properties and developing applications.
  Natural porous vibro-acoustic media
  Dr S Oberst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Audio, Acoustics and Vibration (CAAV) was formed in 2017 and now has nine full time academic staff. The Centre is based at Tech Lab, which is a brand new research led facility that is close to the airport in Sydney.
  What makes particle packings stable? Novel answers to a baffling question
  Dr M Haw, Dr L Lue, Dr K Dobson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils, catalysts, nanoporous materials, pharmaceutical tablets, sand dunes. all are packings of particles, with microstructure on scales from nanometre to centimetre.
  Experimental topics in the manipulation of sound using metamaterials and metasurfaces
  Prof A P Hibbins, Prof J R Sambles
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The studentship is part of the UK’s Centre of Doctoral Training in Metamaterials (XM2) based in the Departments of Physics and Engineering on the Streatham Campus in Exeter.
  Chemical and Biological Recycling of Plastics - Fully funded 48-months PhD studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lack of sustainable plastic waste management strategies has led to the global plastic crisis being one of the major environmental and public health challenges of our time.
  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.
  Understanding the electromechanical switching behaviour of porous ferroelectric ceramics
  Dr J Roscow
Application Deadline: 25 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Informal queries should be directed to Dr James Roscow ([email protected]). Introducing carefully structured porosity into ferroelectric ceramics is an effective way of achieving a favourable balance of piezoelectric and dielectric properties for sensing and energy harvesting applications.
  Modelling Wetting on Structured Surfaces using the Lattice Boltzmann Method
  Dr H Kusumaatmaja
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The wetting behaviour of liquids on solid surfaces plays an important role for current and emerging technologies involving liquids from the nano- to the macro-scales.
  Low-field NMR studies to probe motion and dynamics in rock pore structures
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantification of transport and dynamics in rock pore structures is essential for understanding, optimising and enhancing oil and gas recovery as well as assess the capacity and effectiveness for CO2 storage.
  Sustainable conversion of biomass-based wastes into porous bio-carbons and their application in CO2 capture - LEVERHULME
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current most difficult challenge of biomass-based wastes is the lack of a volume-balancing set of applications and valorisation techniques which can decrease the large volumes that are sent to the landfill.
