  Dr E Valsami-Jones, Dr Z Li
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Nanoscience and nanotechnology explore the special properties and processes that occur in the nanoscale. the size range conventionally considered as 1-100nm.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  Pre-nucleation in the metal–organic framework crystallisation
  Dr H Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek to recruit a highly motivated and talented PhD student in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham within the research group of Dr Hamish H-M Yeung.
  15 fully funded PhD studentships in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Sustainable Hydrogen

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited to undertake a 4-year PhD at the EPSRC Centre of Doctoral Training (CDT) in Sustainable Hydrogen.  .
  Catalysts for the low-temperature production of hydrogen from ammonia
  Dr J Makepeace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from enthusiastic and motivated students are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.
  The climatology of thunderstorm downbursts
  Prof Mark Sterling, Prof G Kopp, Dr M Jesson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thunderstorm downbursts are relatively short-lived, extreme winds which can result in wind speeds matching those of medium-strength tornadoes.
  Supramolecular assemblies for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar power provides a clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels and light harvesting has long been a source of renewable energy in Nature.
  Supramolecular sensors for the detection and removal of environmental pollutants
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of selective supramolecular sensors that undergo a macroscopic, detectable response upon binding a particular substrate is an intense area of interest.
  Use of polymer concrete as a lining material for small diameter tunnels installed using Microtunnelling Machines
  Dr A Royal, Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trenchless technologies are used to install buried infrastructure without the need for open cut excavations. One such technique is microtunnelling; this uses microtunnelling machines to excavate the bore whilst the lining is traditionally installed via pipe jacking or auto-erecting segmental systems.
  Drivers of marine ecosystem change during an ancient abrupt global warming event
  Dr K Edgar, Dr R Butler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Palaeocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) ~56 million years ago, is the largest of a series of abrupt global warming events known from the Cenozoic.
