  Laser induced breakdown spectroscopy for subsea applications
  Dr T Thevar, Dr S S Aphale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is a widely used technique to obtain the elemental constituents of a sample. The process uses a short pulse of focused laser light to evaporate a minute volume of a target substance by highly localized heating to temperatures greater than 5000 K.
  Production of value-added chemicals and/or fuels from plastic wastes by unconventional technologies
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are the preferred materials in many important areas, such as packaging, beverage, construction, automobiles, medicine, etc., owing to their low cost, easy manufacture, and physicochemical properties.
  Biomass-derived oils catalytic cracking in existing refinery processes
  Dr I Graca, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The partial replacement of crude oil by renewable sources to produce high quality transportation fuels is a timely and interesting topic.
  Green conversion of (mixed) waste into porous carbon materials with application in gas treatment by adsorption
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will face the global challenge of reducing landfilling by revalorising wastes of different nature and composition (i.e.
  Sustainable development of cutting-edge porous sorbents for gas separation
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr I Graca, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective and sustainable porous adsorbents aiming at separating impurities and main constituents from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Conversion of waste plastics to useful chemicals, fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Imaging of element distribution in brain tissue
  Dr A Raab, Prof J Feldmann, Prof B Platt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trace elements are non-homogenously distributed in brain tissue, the distribution depends on the element. There is some research indicating that trace elements, in particular Fe, Cu and Zn, are associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
