  CFD of Flow and Temperature Control Using Porous Materials
  Dr Y Mahmoudi Larimi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of porous materials (i.e. solid medium permeated by a network of pores), in particular, for passive control of flow and thermal purposes has received considerable academic and industrial attention over the past five decades.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Making the world sound better – acoustic metamaterials for manipulating sound in air and underwater
  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.
  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.
  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.
  Computational design of metal-organic framework photocatalysts for solar fuel synthesis
  Dr R Grau-Crespo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous crystalline materials consisting of metal atoms or clusters connected by organic linkers.
  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.
  Nature-Inspired Low Friction Lubricated Surfaces
  Prof G McHale
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A large amount of the world’s disposable energy is lost through friction and drag. This project will create new types of liquid and liquid-like surfaces which remove liquid friction and drag.
