Understanding interactions between minerals and small biopolymers under extreme conditions

Project Summary. This project combines computational screening and wet-lab experiments to develop a comprehensive understanding of the interactions between silicate minerals and small biologically-relevant molecules, such as amino acids, peptides, peptoids and proteins. Read more

Evaluation of the impact of Catchment Sensitive Farming in reducing pesticide contamination in English rivers

With funding from the Environment Agency, this project will work on the high-profile topic of freshwater quality and will contribute to the evaluation of a government-funded water quality programme. Read more

Innovative Spectroscopic Approaches to Water Quality Monitoring

Providing clean water to a growing global population is a huge challenge and there is now a pressing need for us to develop better methods to measure water quality, since these underpin efforts to prevent pollution and measure the success of remediation efforts. Read more

In-situ disposal of cementitious wastes at UK nuclear sites

This fully funded UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) PhD bursary provides an exciting opportunity to pursue postgraduate research relating to waste management during the decommissioning of UK nuclear sites. Read more

Defining how inter-bacterial symbioses regulate aquatic ecosystem health (PhD Project)

Planktonic bacteria play crucial roles in regulating the productivity, health and function of aquatic ecosystems. Recent evidence suggests that the growth and ecological impacts of aquatic bacteria is potentially strongly regulated by previously over-looked inter-bacterial interactions. Read more

Resolving the threat of ocean deoxygenation to reef resilience

This project aims to uncover the role low oxygen plays in shaping healthy corals over space and time. Climate change and land use development are rapidly deoxygenating shallow water coral reefs, yet we have no knowledge of how less oxygen availability affects critical life history factors that govern coral resilience. Read more

Engineering 3D biofilms for sustainable wastewater management

Water pollution from untreated wastewater is a big challenge across many countries. This is partly because centralised wastewater treatment networks are expensive to install and are energy intensive. Read more

Properties of Sustainable Liquid Fuels

In the on-going drive to lower CO. 2. emissions, sustainable biologically-derived and synthetic liquid fuels are expected to replace petroleum-derived fuels in some automotive applications. Read more

12 Dual Degree PhD positions D-Carbonize Consortium

The D-carbonize consortium is seeking 12 PhD students (Doctoral Candidates – DCs) to work in a multidisciplinary & interdisciplinary team formed by 6 academic research groups, 5 companies and 1 industry association, offering excellent research and training both in R&D and entrepreneurship. Read more

GREENCDT The impact of polyacrylamide radiolytic and microbial degradation products on the interim and long term storage of radwaste

Managing the radioactive waste inventory in the UK, is a £multibillion grand challenge. Polyacrylamide has been identified as a potential settling aid which can improve sludge settling operations in nuclear waste storage ponds on the Sellafield site, by flocculating a range of legacy fuel materials. Read more

Probing the local structure of functional materials under high pressure

This is a joint collaborative project between the University of Warwick and the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source. ISIS is a world-leading facility for studying the atomic-level structure of materials that attracts over 3000 external researchers each year from over 30 different countries. Read more

Biological coagulant recovery for resilient and sustainable water and wastewater treatment PhD

This PhD position offers an exciting opportunity to do pioneering research on the recovery of nutrients and metals from water treatment sludge to embrace the circular economy and protect our environment. Read more
