This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Insect technology: Taking a ’bite’ out of plastic pollution
  Prof R Atkins
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polystyrene is a non-biodegradable persistent plastic that is accumulating at alarming rates on land and in rivers, lakes and oceans.
  Bioplastic from sustainable feedstock – tackling the plastic challenge
  Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic is used in many applications, including packaging, construction material, parts in the automotive, biomedical devices and electronic components.
  Engineering Enzymes to address global plastic pollution problems
  Assoc Prof L Connal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are nature’s catalysts, they perform highly specific chemical and physical functions from the generation of movement to the synthesis of DNA.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. The process conditions of pyrolysis can alter the proportions of gas, solid and liquid products.
  The management of marine plastics
  Prof Paul Lant, Prof B Laycock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics pollution in our oceans is a wicked problem.
  Advanced Optical Fibre Fabrication and Applications
  Prof J Canning
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advanced Optical Fibre Fabrication. Areas can include new Bi fibres (led by Prof. Peng at UNSW; Prof Canning is a Conjoint Professor) for amplifiers, lasers and sensors and novel structured fibres including photonic crystal fibres, Fresnel fibres, spun structured optical fibres and so on.
  Prediction of engineering properties of thermomechanically treated aluminium alloys
  Prof H Assadi
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for one full-time EPSRC Industrial CASE (ICASE) PhD studentship for the project above at Brunel Centre for Advanced Solidification Technology (BCAST), Brunel University London, starting from 1st October 2020.
  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.
  Understanding domestic water use behaviour - PhD
  Dr H Smith, Dr P J Jeffrey
Application Deadline: 17 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting fully funded PhD, will deliver innovative insights around domestic water use behaviours and the use of ‘smart’ water use sensors, in order to support more resilient water services well into the future against a backdrop of significant challenge.
  Marie Sklodowska–Curie Innovative Training Network Early Stage Researcher on new chiral emitters for chiral devices
  Prof M Fuchter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions funded PhD studentship position in chemical synthesis and characterisation of chiral molecular emitters is available within the Department of Chemistry at Imperial College, London.
  Structural batteries mechanical resilience
  Dr ATR Rhead, Prof MSI Islam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Batteries based on carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) have the potential to supply power with an improved overall efficiency (vehicle power to weight rather than battery power to weight) compared to current battery technologies.
  PhD vacancy (3 years) on experimental testing of thermoplastic automotive composites
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Thermoplastic composites are gaining more and more interest in automotive, aerospace and sports applications, because of the short cycle times and recycling possibilities.
  PhD vacancy (4 years) on nondestructive testing (NDT) of composites using Guided Waves
  Prof W VAN PAEPEGEM
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop robust guided waves NDT methods that can detect defects in Fiber reinforced plastic parts (focus on aerospace and automotive industry).
  Sensor Design for Food Safety and Quality and Traceability
  Prof F Deghani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food packaging will not be limited to containing a product. Rather, it will play a pivotal role in providing information about the authenticity, quality, and history of the packaged food.
