  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Recycling and degradation scope of anhydride-epoxide co-polymers
  Dr B Ward, Dr A Paul
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The demand for plastics is vast, with 348 million tonnes being produced in 2017 alone,1 and the trend for plastic production is increasing exponentially year-on-year.
  Engineering Design and Catalyst of Novel AEM Water Electrolyser Cell for Green Hydrogen Production for Energy Storage, Renewable Energy – PhD (Funded)
  Prof X Li
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. We are seeking applications from enthusiastic graduates for a three and half year PhD studentship to develop a novel anion exchange membrane (AEM) water electrolyser cell for green hydrogen production.
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  Incest and insects: How plant sex affects herbivores and pollinators
  Dr S Campbell, Prof M T Siva-jothy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A long-standing paradigm in ecology and evolutionary biology suggests that the immense diversity of insects has been driven by adaptation to the defences of the plants they feed on.
  Synthesis of New Metal-Oxo Cluster Molecules for Photocatalysis
  Dr S Pike
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One PhD studentship funded by The Royal Society (with stipendiary support for four years) is available for a talented researcher with an interest in Inorganic Chemistry.
  QUADRAT DTP: Trace element behaviour in surface environments on enriched shales, Britain and Ireland
  Prof J Parnell, Prof A Meharg
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A critical aspect of environmental studies is the understanding of how trace elements are distributed in surface deposits where they can cause toxicity in the water supply, animals and foodstuffs.
  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.
  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  Presence, morphology and size distribution of nanoplastics and natural fibres in the environment
  Dr P Kay
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. Plastics in the environment has been seen as one of the most important contemporary environmental issues since David Attenborough’s recent coverage of the topic on Blue Planet.
  The global carbon cycle budget imbalance
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use state-of-the-art models to investigate the extent to which improved representation of biosphere-atmosphere processes reduces the global carbon cycle budget imbalance.
  Better air quality through chemistry: Real-time monitoring of reactive trace species in key atmospheric reactions impacting air quality
  Dr D Stone, Prof P Seakins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Poor air quality has been reported as the greatest environmental risk to public health in the UK, has recently been linked to dementia, and is estimated to cause over 40,000 premature deaths in the UK each year.
  Fibrous minerals in the environment – occurrence, longevity and risk to human health.
  Dr D Bullen, Dr A Gibson, Dr M Fowler
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded three year PhD to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based in the Faculty of Science and Health, and will be supervised by Dr Bullen, Dr Gibson and Dr Fowler.
  Computational design of metal-organic framework photocatalysts for solar fuel synthesis
  Dr R Grau-Crespo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous crystalline materials consisting of metal atoms or clusters connected by organic linkers.

  Research Group: Water and Environmental Engineering
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Yongqiang Liu. Co-supervisor Prof Sonia Heaven. Project description. Municipal wastewater treatment is moving from energy-intensive conventional activated sludge to more advanced technology for sustainability.
  Ocean acidification monitoring using novel sensing technologies on marine autonomous platforms
  Dr S Loucaides, Dr N Lawrence, Dr M Mowlem, Dr A Nightingale
Application Deadline: 4 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution the ocean has become more acidic due to uptake of atmospheric CO2, a process that is projected to continue under current scenarios.
