  High-Performance Compressed Straw Board (HPCSB): A New Generation of Building Materials
  Dr S Ghaffar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to introduce a greatly improved, lightweight variant of Compressed Straw Board (CSB) for the construction industry, strong enough to accommodate structural loads both in tension and under compression.
  Solute transport and precipitation in porous media
  Dr N Shokri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we will combine modelling and experimental approaches to extend our understanding of the processes controlling solute transport and precipitation in drying porous media.
  Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) for energy applications
  Prof M Wriedt
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wriedt Lab’s research activities are mainly focused at developing new strategies for the design and synthesis of advanced functional solid-state materials from molecular building blocks and advancing the understanding of their structure-property relationship.
  Formation mechanisms of corrosion-resistant oxide films in steel reinforced alkali-activated materials
  Dr S Bernal
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The corrosion of steel reinforcement in conventional concrete materials is the most prevalent global challenge for cities and their infrastructure.
  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  Microfluidic manipulation of the properties of soft biocompatible materials via thermophoresis
  Dr D Vigolo
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to exploit an innovative way to locally manipulate the mechanical properties and porosity of a soft material at the micron scale, and thus develop a new class of functionalised materials.
  Molecular Basis of Interfacial Interactions in Crystalline Organic Materials
  Dr E Simone
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crystallization of organic compounds is a separation and purification technique widely used across industrial sectors. pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, foods, healthcare and many formulated household products contain crystalline particulate components.
  Towards Production of Bulk Phase, Rare Earth-Free Magnets
  Dr O Cespedes
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Towards production of bulk phase, rare earth-free magnets via novel nanocarbon-metal hybrids with high energy products at room temperature.
  Nanoporous materials for removal of pollutants from water
  Dr A Fletcher, Prof V Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants have been linked to adverse effects in humans and wildlife, such species e.g. metaldehyde as a persistent pesticide, as well as pentabromobiphenylether, 4-nonylphenol, C10-C13 chloroalkanes and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, which are listed as priority hazardous substances by the EU (refs.
  Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE CDT) fully funded PhDs at Loughborough, UCL (UK) and MaREI (IRL)
Application Deadline: 6 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The new EPSRC CDT in Energy Resilience and the Built Environment (ERBE) brings together established energy research centres at Loughborough University (LU) and University College London (UCL) together with the MaREI Research Centre (MaREI) (Ireland).
