Polymer Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Birmingham

We have 16 Polymer Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships in Birmingham

Visualising Molecular Doping in Conjugated Polymers

Visualising Molecular Doping in Conjugated Polymers. A fully funded 3.5 years PhD position in the field of experimental nanoscience at surfaces and molecular imaging of conjugated polymers is available in the group of Prof. Read more

Glycan sensing technology for early and accurate cancer diagnosis

The Mendes group (https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/research/healthcare-technologies/research/nanoengineering-surface-chemistry/index.aspx) in the School of Chemical Engineering, University of Birmingham welcomes applications from prospective PhD students to conduct work in the area of glycan sensing technology for cancer diagnosis. Read more

Degradable and sustainable polymers in the Environment

The influence of plastic pollution on our environment has been well documented, however, there remains a knowledge gap between relating to how new polymers and plastics might biodegrade. Read more

High-Resolution Imaging of Green Conjugated Polymers

High-Resolution Imaging of Green Conjugated Polymers. A fully funded 3.5 years PhD position in the field of experimental nanoscience at surfaces and molecular imaging of conjugated polymers is available in the group of Prof. Read more

Chemical Recycling of PET Plastic Using Thermo-Responsive Catalyst Supports

There is an urgent need to devise processes for recycling plastics, with an estimated 460 million metric tonnes of plastics being utilised worldwide in 2019 alone, of which only 10% is recycled globally, the remainder going to incineration, landfill or export. Read more

Soft & Crystalline Composite Materials: Developing Total Scattering Workflows for the Interrogation of Structure.

An exciting interdisciplinary project for an enthusiastic student to develop a broad range of expertise, combining the experimental and computationally-based characterisation of advanced composite materials. Read more

Sustainable processes – reducing single use plastics in healthcare

The burden of medical plastic waste has become an increasingly pressing concern in recent years. The healthcare industry relies heavily on single-use plastic items due to their convenience and hygiene factors, but this has led to a significant environmental problem. Read more

Stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules for sensing and catalysis

Background – the stereoselective synthesis of mechanically chiral molecules. The stereoselective synthesis of chiral organic molecules is one of the core challenges in synthetic organic chemistry. Read more

PhD in Predicting the environmental degradation of plastics

Understanding how plastics and polymers degrade in the environment is an important sustainability target. Our work in this area uses innovative analytical techniques and simulated environments to understand how specific plastics degrade in different environments. Read more

Wearable Sample Collection for Biosensing

Measurement of low abundance proteins is key for enabling early detection of diseases [1]. A widely used method for the measurement of low abundance proteins is enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) [2]. Read more
