Showing 1 to 10 of 53
  Isotopes and ecohydrological models for sustainable urban water management - LEVERHULME
  Prof C Soulsby
Application Deadline: 3 March 2019
Urbanisation is one of the major global drivers of land use change, and sustainably managing urban water is one of the key environmental challenges of the 21st Century.
  Precision profiling the breast cancer microenvironment
  Prof V Speirs, Dr R Abu Eid
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
The cancer microenvironment contains many different cell types, including various subsets of immune cells and cancer-associated fibroblasts, which support cancer growth.
  Non-invasive Mapping of Oxygen Extraction Fraction in Patients with Breast Cancer: Development of Novel Multi-Parametric Relaxometry Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Methods
  Dr J He, Dr Y Masannat, Prof D Lurie
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
This project aims to translate, optimise and extend quantitative oxygen extraction fraction mapping based on oxygen enriched air inspiration and magnetic resonance (MR) relaxometric imaging for human application.
  Development of ex vivo tissue culture models for developing next-generation biomaterial scaffolds for acellular regenerative medicine.
  Prof I Gibson, Prof N Vargesson
Application Deadline: 29 March 2019
Bone repair and regeneration can be influenced by various guidance cues, including pharmacological cues, hypoxia environment and chemical cues released from scaffolds [1-3].
  Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) from depleted Sandstone and Carbonate/chalk reservoirs
  Dr P Jadhawar, Dr H Hamidi
Applications accepted all year round
Nearly one third of the oil is left behind in the reservoir after the primary and secondary recovery methods of oil recovery.
  Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Production of Chemicals and Materials
The University of Aberdeen has been awarded over £1million in funding to establish a centre that will train a new generation of researchers to develop technologies that convert organic waste into sustainable materials.
  Heat pump assisted distillation for the energy efficient separation of the liquid phase products from anaerobic digestion
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr A Majumder
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
This project is part of a wider research programme into biological routes for the synthesis of chemical products. A key element of this approach is the separation of the chemical products from the aqueous broths produced by the bioreactors/anaerobic digestors, which is commonly achieved via distillation.
  Carbon Negative Cementised Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate Building Products
  Dr M S Imbabi, Dr W Afzal, Prof F P Glasser
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The proposed PhD will investigate the production of different granularity and morphology Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate (PMC) derivative building products to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the performance of the built environment.
  Synthesis and Investigation of Novel Ionic Conductors
  Dr A McLaughlin, Dr A Martinez-Felipe
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Fuel cells convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency and low emission of pollutants. In a fuel cell, the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water and electricity and as such provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
  Microwave-assisted pre-treatment for the cost-effective anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic substrates
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising technology for the treatment of organic solid waste and wastewater, as it combines energy recovery with waste treatment.
