  Biofilm Engineering for Healthcare Applications
  Dr AF Taylor, Dr E Karunakaran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biofilms are communities of microorganisms bound to surfaces by a layer of glue-like extracellular polymeric substances (EPS). They can be found virtually everywhere, from water pipes and food packaging to medical devices and human tissues.
  Biomass-assisted Catalytic Reduction of Carbon Dioxide
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon dioxide has the potential to be utilised as a carbon source for the production of chemicals, providing new routes to oxygenates and providing an economic offset to the costs of carbon sequestration.
  Carbon Dioxide Utilisation via Co-electrolysis Powered by Renewable Energy
  Dr RH Rothman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recycling carbon dioxide to form fuel gives the potential for a carbon neutral fuel cycle – reducing net CO2 emissions and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
  Carbon Dioxide Utilisation via Co-electrolysis: Development of Nano-structured Electrodes
  Dr RH Rothman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recycling carbon dioxide to form fuel gives the potential for a carbon neutral fuel cycle – reducing net CO2 emissions and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
  Carbon Dioxide Utilisation via Co-electrolysis: Optimising Operating Strategies
  Dr RH Rothman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recycling carbon dioxide to form fuel gives the potential for a carbon neutral fuel cycle – reducing net CO2 emissions and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
  Carbon Dioxide Utilisation via Co-electrolysis: Synthesis of Electro-fuels
  Dr RH Rothman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recycling carbon dioxide to form fuel gives the potential for a carbon neutral fuel cycle – reducing net CO2 emissions and reducing dependence on fossil fuels.
  Catalytic Conversion of Organic Acid By-products from Sustainable Processes
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic (carboxylic) acids are produced as by-products from a range of sustainable processes, e.g. in the aqueous phase arising from CO2 conversion via Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; anaerobic digestate residues; BSF larvae used for organic waste decomposition etc.
  Catalytic Origins of Organic Compounds in Extraterrestrial Space
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has been proposed that organic compounds are formed in protostellar nebulae through heterogeneous catalytic reactions, analogous to Fischer-Tropsch synthesis.
  Design and Discovery of Adsorbent Materials for Challenging Gas Separation Applications
  Dr PZ Moghadam, Dr SF Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adsorptive gas separation and purification have long been proposed as lower cost and lower energy-use methods to replace traditional cryogenic distillation or absorptive methods.
  Designing Supports for Artificial Photosynthetic Catalysts
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic catalysts are being developed that can convert carbon dioxide into useful chemicals. However, the catalysts’ function depends critically on attachment to solid semi-conductor surfaces.
