  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Interfacial Photochemistry in Aerosol Droplets: Chemistry and Climate Impacts
  Dr B Bzdek, Dr A Squires
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD studentship starting in Autumn 2020 as part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  Credibility of Predictions of Reactor Core Condition
  Prof EA Patterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically, about 20% of the UK’s electricity is supplied from nuclear power-stations [http://gridwatch.co.uk/] which are operated by EDF.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  Functional nanoparticles for plant systems (EPS2020/37)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop nanoparticle-based reagent for delivery of bioactive molecules to plants. Food shortage is likely to be a major concern in the next decade if the global population grows at the current rate.
  Magnetic molecular imprinted polymers (MMIP) for detecting biohazard pollutants (EPS2020/35)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop MMIP for binding and detecting harmful biomolecules in the environment. Biohazard pollutants are health concerns but they are usually at a very low concentration that many conventional monitoring techniques are inefficient.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  Lead-free pyroelectric materials for a new form of water treatment by harvesting low grade waste heat
  Prof Chris Bowen, Prof F Marken, Prof T Jenkins
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath has launched a joint PhD programme with Monash University, Australia.
  High-confidence modelling of particle resuspension
  Prof J P Reid, Dr J Van Duijneveldt, Dr W Briscoe, Prof D Murnane
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD studentship starting in Autumn 2020 as part of the EPSRC CDT in Aerosol Science. https://www.aerosol-cdt.ac.uk/how-to-apply/.
