Molecule-based magnets are highly interesting with their potential applications in high-density data storage devices and quantum computing.
  Biodegradable composite materials (Bio-PolyMOFs) for applications in targeted delivery of drugs to improve healthcare and reduce antimicrobial resistance in developing countries and worldwide
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr A L Kelly, Dr M Katsikogianni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major global challenges and is linked to the use of unnecessarily high doses of orally administered antibiotics following medical surgery and infections.
  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
  Polymers for treating amoebic infections in India
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amoebic parasitic infections are widespread in the tropics. Amoebic dysentery can be fatal if the parasite progresses to the brain.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.
  Directed Co-Crystallisation of Pharmaceuticals: developing a predictive method for co-crystallisation
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to use a combination of computational and experimental techniques to develop a predictive method for co-crystallisation.
  Discovery and Development of Biocatalytic Solutions to Mitigate Microplastic Pollution
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr R Hamed, Dr U Sivarajah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic contamination is a great ecological disaster facing modern society; a burden overwhelmingly heaped on the least economically developed countries.
  Development of highly stable porous composite membranes for separation of greenhouse gases
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Prof S Rimmer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers, which are known as secondary building units or SBUs.
  Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  Development and performance improvement of structural concrete using reused aggregate
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Dr X Dai, Prof D Lam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Concrete is one of the most used construction materials in construction practice overall world. Aggregate is the main constituent material for concrete and it affects the concrete properties significantly.
