  Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization
  Dr L Morrill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dr Louis Morrill (https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/69691-morrill-louis) is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project “Earth-Abundant First Row Transition Metal Catalysis for Diverse Alcohol Functionalization”.
  EPSRC DTP Hub – Sustainable Plastics

Funding Type

PhD Type

These studentships will be part of Cardiff University's interdisciplinary doctoral training hub in sustainable plastics. The manufacture, performance and end-of-life (recycling, environmental fate) of polymers (plastics) is an area of intense current interest and importance.
  Investigating the use of photoactive crystalline porous materials such as metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) as a platform for nanofluidic devices
  Dr T Easun
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dr Timothy Easun http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/69904-easun-tim is looking for a PhD student to work on the research project ’Metal-Organic Frameworks and Supramolecular Photochemistry’.
  PhD in Chemistry: New applications of Frustrated Lewis Pairs in Organic Synthesis
  Dr R Melen
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will look at new reactions that can be performed using frustrated Lewis pairs. The student will develop skills in organic and inorganic synthesis.
  PhD in Chemistry: Single or Double? A Radical Approach to Synthesis via Frustrated Lewis Pairs Through EPR Characterisation
  Dr E Richards, Dr R Melen
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims to characterise electron transfer processes that direct the chemical reactivity of Frustrated Lewis Pairs, opening the potential for divergent reactivities in organic synthesis and small molecule activation.
  PhD in Chemistry: Surface Engineered Nanocrystals: EPR Radical Detection of Photoactivity
  Dr E Richards
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heterogeneous photocatalysis is a promising technology to address the global grand challenges of accelerated energy consumption and increased atmospheric levels of toxic gases.
  PhD in Chemistry; Development of new DNA-binding sensitisers for biosensors
  Prof S Pope, Dr N Buurma
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to develop new molecules for use as DNA-binding sensitisers in biosensors for detection of pathogens by their DNA.
  PhD in Engineering: Fundamental interactions of cells with electromagnetic fields
  Dr C Williams
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Underpinning the function of any biosensor is the fundamental interaction that leads to the reporter signal of the sensor. Within this IDTH, we are already using microwaves for the rapid release of target DNA from cells, and study the fundamental interactions of microwaves with living cells.
  PhD Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences: Towards the development of a point-of-care detection system for acute respiratory infections
  Dr J Bowen
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pneumonia remains the leading cause of death in children under 5 worldwide, killing an estimated 1.4 million children each year. In order to improve clinical outcomes, appropriate treatment(s) need to be started as soon as possible.
  Sustainable Catalysis Using Non-Metals
  Dr R Melen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research program will illustrate new design strategies to synthesise ambiphilic molecules that contain both electrophilic (Lewis acidic) and nucleophilic (Lewis basic) sites that may be employed as catalysts (known as Frustrated Lewis Pairs).
  Accelerated Industrial application of Electrical Vehicle Charging Technologies
  Dr J Liang, Dr L Cipcigan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

October 2020 4 Years. It is estimated that in 2018, total UK greenhouse gas emissions were 43.5 per cent lower than in 1990 and 2.5 per cent lower than 2017.
  MULTIPHYSICAL HELMET LINERS TO ENHANCE EQUESTRIAN HEAD PROTECTION
  Dr P Theobald
Application Deadline: 8 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3 Years July/October 2020. Horse riders achieve a very high compliance of helmet wearing, yet equestrian activities still represent the highest rate of head-related accident and emergency admissions.
  Nanomaterials for the Next Generation of Functional and Smart Fluids
  Dr D Zabek, Dr J Bartley, Prof G Min
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Functional-, or smart materials naturally respond to external forces by adapting their mechanical, electrical, thermal and magnetic properties to the environment.
  Numerical simulation of new cementitious composite materials
  Prof A D Jefferson, Dr I Mihai
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

4 years October 2020. The studentship will focus on the numerical simulation of a new cementitious construction material system (or new material for short).
  Radio Frequency Techniques applied to additive manufacturing
  Prof A Porch, Prof S Cripps
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1st October 2020 4 years full time. This iCASE project combines the world class expertise of Renishaw in additive manufacturing with Cardiff’s Centre for High Frequency Engineering, using radio frequency (RF) techniques for the manufacture of metal parts.
