Chemical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 400 Chemical Engineering PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Microneedle biosensors for rapid and painless disease diagnosis

This project aims to develop rapid disease diagnostics based on transdermal microneedle biosensors. Disease diagnosis often relies on invasive tissue sampling techniques, such as blood sampling or skin biopsies, in order to extract biomarkers for analysis. Read more

Low carbon hydrogen production from biomass gasification

Prospective Start Date. 1 April 2024. Supervisor. Dr Paula Blanco Sanchez. Co-Supervisor. Dr Scott Banks. Applications are invited for a three-year Postgraduate studentship, supported by Aston University to be undertaken within the Energy & bioproducts Research Institute (EBRI) at Aston University. Read more

Plasma-based gas conversion into value-added chemicals

  Research Group: Plasma and fusion science and technologies
Plasmas are promising technology for the conversion of gases such as CO2, CH4 or N2 into more valuable ones, e.g. CO (starting material for alcohols and hydrocarbons), H2 (clean fuel applications) and NH3 (fertilisers). Read more

Model-based Approach for Prognostics Health Management (PHM) for Fusion Reactors

  Research Group: Plasma and fusion science and technologies
The University of York is at the forefront of transformative research in data-centric engineering, digital twins, and AI, bringing about a revolution in the design and operation of systems. Read more

Modelling the Role of Hard Particles in Hard Facing Alloys

Supervisory Team: Robert Wood, Georges Limbert and Dave Stewart (RRSL). Project description. Hard facing alloys, such as those used in nuclear power plant, are composite materials comprising carbides (and other hard phases), in galling resistant metallic matrices. Read more

Explainable AI for Safety Critical Engineering Systems

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
The University of York is at the forefront of transformative research in data-centric engineering, digital twins, and AI. Our pioneering work is revolutionizing the design of complex systems by harnessing the power of data. Read more

PhD Studentship in Solar Chemical Technologies

A PhD studentship is available at the University of Cambridge, starting in October 2025 under the supervision of Professor Erwin Reisner in the Yusuf Hamied Department of Chemistry. Read more

Controlling plasma chemistry of cold atmospheric-pressure air plasmas

  Research Group: Plasma and fusion science and technologies
Plasma technologies already form a key part of many of today’s multi-billion pound industries such as the nanoscale fabrication of microprocessors, production of solar cells and the deposition of advanced functional coatings. Read more

PEM Electrolyser for Green Hydrogen Production

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
About the Project. Producing green hydrogen using water electrolysis is an important step towards achieving net-zero emissions by 2050. Read more

Multi-Fidelity Modelling of Rechargeable Battery Degradation

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Robotics
Rechargeable batteries play a key role in electric vehicles and transition to net zero. One of the current challenges in batteries is degradation, which causes capacity retention and resistance increase as the battery cycles. Read more

Understanding shale rock swelling for energy systems: novel integrated modelling and experimental approaches

A fully funded PhD position is available in the group of Professor Carbone (Department of Chemistry) and Professor Taylor (Department of Earth Science) at the University of Manchester starting from September 2024. Read more

Modelling bubble-particle interactions for solids separation

Bubble-particle systems are encountered in a wide range of industrial and environmental applications (flotation, bioreactors, slurry bubble columns) but the complex dynamics and interactions make the design and operation of such systems particularly challenging. Read more

Programming Colloidal Self-Assembly for Advanced Materials

A PhD place is available with Dr Dwaipayan Chakrabarti in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham on a project themed on designing and developing colloidal advanced materials, using high-performance computing, underpinned by theories of statistical mechanics and wave propagation in periodic structures.
