  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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amorphous explosives offer a number of advantages in comparison to conventional (crystalline) explosives. They are generally safer, can be more powerful, and easier to mould and shape.
  Sustainable formulations based on cellulose based colloid-nematic gels.
  Dr T Wood, Dr M. Dorris
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An opportunity has arisen for a 4-year PhD studentship within the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Edinburgh funded by the BBSRC through the Industrial Biotechnology Innovation Centre (IBioIC).
  Experimental and Computational Studies of Nitrocellulose, Nitroglycerin formulations
  Prof C Morrison, Prof CR Pulham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Double base propellants are complex formulations of nitrocellulose (NC), nitroglycerin (NG) and other stabilisation and performance-enhancing additives.
  Understanding the role of lead-based ballistic modifiers in the combustion of double base propellants
  Prof CR Pulham, Prof C Morrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ballistic modifiers are additives in double base propellants that stabilise the burning rate of the propellant mixture to changes in pressure.
  Examining the Molecular Basis of Friction and Viscosity
  Prof S L Cockroft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This proposal seeks to examine the physicochemical molecular-level origin of macroscopic viscosity and friction. Background. Viscosity and friction influence the operation of all macroscopic mechanical devices, from the smallest electric motors, to motor engines and the giant turbines found within generators.
  Quantum‑Enhanced Imaging (EPS2020/16)
  Prof G Buller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Single‑Photon Group at Heriot‑Watt University offer a four year fully funded PhD position examining aspects of single‑photon and quantum‑enhanced imaging.
  Ultrafast Transient Absorption Spectroscopy of Photosensitizers in Photodynamic Therapy
  Dr D Townsend, Dr SJ Greaves
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Femtosecond lasers with pulse durations comparable to the “ultrafast” timescales of molecular motion have become a powerful tool for studying the dynamics of energy redistribution following ultraviolet (UV) absorption in real time.
  Time-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy using Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibres
  Dr D Townsend
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in hollow-core photonic crystal fibre technology now permit widely tuneable generation of femtosecond light pulses in the ultraviolet spectral region.
  Photoelectron Circular Dichroism as a Chiral Probe
  Dr D Townsend
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project will investigate photoelectron circular dichroism (PECD) in chiral molecules (i.e. molecules exhibiting distinct left- and right-handed forms that are non-superimposable mirror images).
  Fuel structure effects on wildfire hazard assessments
  Dr R Hadden
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wildfire risk is changing in the UK. As the climate changes it is anticipated that the UK will experience longer periods of drier, hotter weather and that this will result in conditions that mean wildfire occurrence and fire danger will increase.
