  Macroscopic capillary pressure in multi-phase porous media flows
  Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although multi-phase flow in porous media is an established research field for decades, its theoretical background is still being developed.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  Synthesis of Carbon-rich Molecular Materials
  Dr N Lucas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

New carbon-rich molecular materials, based on well-defined nanographenes and other novel polyaromatic architectures, will be rationally synthesised to better understand structure-property relationships.
  Design and Discovery of Adsorbent Materials for Challenging Gas Separation Applications
  Dr PZ Moghadam, Dr SF Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adsorptive gas separation and purification have long been proposed as lower cost and lower energy-use methods to replace traditional cryogenic distillation or absorptive methods.
  Exploitation and production from Methane Hydrate reservoirs (Arctic and Subsea porous media)
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Naturally occurring gas (mostly methane) hydrates along the continental margins (coastal offshore) and permafrost sediments are the clean source of energy outnumbering the rest forms of conventional energy sources.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Continuous Manufacturing with Carbon Nanoreactor Supported Nanoparticle Catalysts for the Self-Optimisation of Heterogenous Reduction Reactions

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.
  Mesoscopic modelling of Polymer Nano-composites
  Dr A Parnell, Dr B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The statistical theory of transport in polymer networks and gels, which are examples of mesoscale porous structures holds many challenges, including connections between structures across length scales, their associated mechanics, and role of thermal fluctuations.

  Hydrodynamics of Magnetic Responsive Foams
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multiphase flow systems such as foams contribute considerably to the world economy and have a wide range of applications from food, medical and fire-fighting to environmental treatment, mineral processing and oil and gas industries.
  Investigation of enhanced oil recovery processes in complex fractured reservoirs
  Dr A Sharifi, Dr R Rafati
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oil recovery from fractured reservoirs is a complex process due to the presence of high-permeability fracture networks. Many processes that have been used successfully in sandstone reservoirs may not be economically feasible in fractured reservoirs.
