  EPSRC CDT in Bioprocess Engineering Leadership: Complex Biological Products Manufacture

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biological products and their manufacture are progressing to unparalleled levels of complexity. Examples include engineered biocatalysts, antibody-drug conjugates, multivalent vaccines and cellular therapies.
  EPSRC PhD studentship in: Managing biofilms and disinfection residuals to protecting drinking water safety
  Prof J Boxall, Dr K Fish, Prof V Speight
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A partnership between The University of Sheffield, Sheffield Water Centre and Scottish Water, as part of the Water Infrastructure and Resilience EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training.
  CO2 catalytic conversion into fuels and fuel-precursors using biomass-derived H-donors - LEVERHULME
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project will deal with the global challenge of mitigating CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, by using CO2 as a raw-material to produce fuels and fuel-precursors.
  Conversion of waste plastics to fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Efficient upgrading of biogas via plasma catalysis - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Heat pump assisted distillation for the energy efficient separation of the liquid phase products from anaerobic digestion - LEVERHULME
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr A Majumder
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a wider research programme into biological routes for the synthesis of chemical products. A key element of this approach is the separation of the chemical products from the aqueous broths produced by the bioreactors/anaerobic digestors, which is commonly achieved via distillation.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Mathematical simulation and optimisation of anaerobic digestion processes for the production of methane, hydrogen and chemicals - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  Optimisation of anaerobic digestion to produce chemicals and methane - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  Sustainable conversion of biomass-based wastes into porous bio-carbons and their application in CO2 capture - LEVERHULME
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current most difficult challenge of biomass-based wastes is the lack of a volume-balancing set of applications and valorisation techniques which can decrease the large volumes that are sent to the landfill.
  Synergetic effect of surface-active metallic additions on structure modification in aluminium alloys
  Prof D Eskin
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full-time EPSRC Industrial CASE (iCASE) PhD studentship for the project “Synergetic effect of surface-active metallic additions on structure modification in aluminium alloys” at Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST), Brunel University London starting from the 1st October 2020.
