  High Power Renewable Energy Nano Catalysis – Fundamental and Applied Electrochemistry
  Prof A Schechter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of a low-cost, high-performance fuel cell is hindered by the lack of an active and electrocatalysts at the anode and cathode.
  (BBSRC DTP) A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond the reach of experimental techniques but can be achieved through synergy with computational chemistry.

  Computational design of polymer thin films for flexible sensor devices
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ferroelectric (FE) materials offer many useful properties and are employed in various devices, including nonvolatile memory, capacitors, sensors and actuators.
  Exploiting the Collective Behaviour of Catalytic Colloids to Make Optoelectronic Devices
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalytic active colloids are able to produce rapid enhanced motion but also possess unusual additional interactions. The interactions can cause colloids to organise into new arrangements that can have interesting optoelectronic properties, which may be used for new technologies.
