  Design of an improved path for cellulose and sugar production from lignocellulosic biomass waste
  Dr Z Visak
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Summary. Biopolymer cellulose has a significant manufacturing value. Enormous quantity of cellulosic waste is generated through wood waste from several sources.
  Optimal Design of Sustainable Anaerobic Baffled Reactors for Wastewater Treatment
  Dr B Fraga, Dr S Sharifi
Application Deadline: 5 March 2019
Most wastewater in developing countries is untreated. Poor water quality and inadequate sanitation leads to the spread of infectious diseases and negatively impacts water quality and availability, food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world.
  Experimental study of biomass fractionation into high-value fuels and chemicals
  Dr P Blanco-Sanchez
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by the School of Engineering and Applied Science, to be undertaken within the European Bioenergy Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University.
  Taking the pulse of Mother Ganga – Identifying hotspots and hot moments of microplastic freshwater pollution at unprecedented scale
  Research Group: Water availability/cleanliness
  Dr I Lynch, Prof S Krause
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Besides the many technological benefits of living in the “plastic age”, the plethora of today’s plastic products, their unsustainable use and high durability cause severe pollution risks with major uncertainties regarding their environmental and human health risks which has understandably lead to considerable public health concerns.

  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
  Microplastics as conduits of flame retardants in birds feeding on landfills
  Dr M Abdallah, Dr S J Reynolds
Applications accepted all year round
There is increasing evidence of widespread ingestion of plastics by birds, mistaking it for food, during foraging. The demonstrated effects of plastic ingestion by birds include.
  Non-exhaust particulate matter from road traffic
  Prof R Harrison, Dr Z Shi
Applications accepted all year round
Background. Our group has been at the forefront of work internationally to characterise and quantify non-exhaust emissions from road traffic1.
