Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The built environment contributes some 40% to global greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions, and in similar shares to the consumption of finite resources and the generation of waste flows [1].
  Novel methods for recycling spent lithium ion batteries to develop of electroactive materials for energy storage applications
  Dr CK Kirk, Prof JB Love
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint PhD studentship is available between the School of Chemistry at the University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Dr Caroline Kirk (http://www.chem.ed.ac.uk/staff/academic-staff/dr-caroline-kirk), and Prof Jason Love (https://jasonlovegroup.wordpress.com/) and the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) A*STAR, Singapore under the supervision of Dr.
  Understanding amorphous explosives
  Prof CR Pulham, Prof C Morrison
Applications accepted all year round
