Exploring new control processes in pi-acid catalysis for efficient synthesis

The project concerns the development, study and application of new catalysis-based methodology seeking to deliver highly efficient routes into functionalised heterocycles. Read more

Development of shelf-stable emulsion-based confectionery fillings

Many of the current “filled confectionery” products communicate (through packaging and advertising) a certain sensorial/textural promise to the consumer; this is that they provide an eating experience that closely resembles that of freshly made foods (fruits, dairy products, desserts etc.). Read more

Metal Atoms on Surfaces & Interfaces (MASI)

This is a 3 year, full-time, fully-funded PhD position as part of the MASI (EPSRC funded) project which includes the Universities of Birmingham, Cambridge, Cardiff and Nottingham. Read more

Investigating the utility of exercise to enhance the yield of haemopoietic stem and progenitor cells in peripheral blood

Haemopoietic stem and progenitor cells (HSPC’s) are donated by approximately 2000 healthy individuals for patients with a variety of blood cancers and genetic disorders in the UK every year, however; there are barriers that limit this process working optimally. Read more

Redefining the origin of life:(Photo)electrochemistry at subfreezing conditions

The origin of life remains one of the greatest and most controversial problems of science. Since 1953, when Miller and Urey performed their now-famous experiment, the scientific community has been strongly divided over whether life arose on Earth under hot-start or cold-start scenarios. Read more

PhD Studentship. Multi-measurand Optical Fibre Sensors. Applications are invited for a 3-year fully-funded PhD studentship in the School of Metallurgy and Materials in the area of optical fibre sensors for harsh environments. Read more

Lifing of Dual Wall Turbine Blade Technologies A

A funded 3-year UK/EU PhD studentship is available in the research group of Professor Paul Bowen and the High Temperature Research Centre (HTRC), School of Metallurgy and Materials at the University of Birmingham, with a stipend of £14,777 per year. Read more

Joint MTC-UoB PhD Scholarship on Laser Enabled Hybrid-Manufacturing Technologies for Surface Functionalisation

Project brief. This PhD project will be focused on developing and implementing hybrid manufacturing solutions that integrate laser surface processing/structuring/texturing (LSPST) with complementary processes, e.g. Read more

Establishing a rationale for FGF23 modulation as a therapy in the critically ill patient

Research interests/description of main research theme. Everyone suffers at least one critical illness during their life. In the UK, 160,000 critically ill patients are admitted annually to intensive care units (ICU). Read more

Chemical Recycling of Plastics Case Study Poly Ethylene Terephthalate (PET) – Catalyst and Process Scale Up

There is an urgent need to devise processes for recycling plastics, with an estimated total of 8300 million metric tonnes of plastics produced to date, of which less than 10% have been recycled overall. Read more
