Showing 41 to 50 of 84
  Mapping sustainable biomass heating pathways for heat decarbonisation
  Dr T Somorin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heat is the biggest form of energy use in the UK, accounting for more than 85% of the energy use in the domestic and industrial sectors.
  Development of learner autonomy in student-centred learning environments in engineering
  Dr E Ventura-Medina, Dr A Anderson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

More than ever engineering disciplines are playing a key role in the development of solutions to the current and future grand challenges that societies around the globe face.
  Nucleation of organic crystals in flows: Discover how organic crystals nucleate and how fluid flows can be used to influence this
  Prof J Sefcik, Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nucleation is a birth of new crystals.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
  Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
  Dr L Lue, Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engineers have traditionally used continuum equations to model processes, such as the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flow. These methods require constitutive relations that encode the properties of the fluid; these are typically determined empirically and have limited predictive capabilities.
  Modelling the effect of the electric double layer on electron transfer kinetics
  Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron transfer between molecules in solution and a surface (e.g., a metallic electrode or semiconducting substrate) occurs in a wide variety of important areas, including catalysis, corrosion, electrodeposition, photochemistry, etc.
  Real-time control of solid fuel upgrading through innovative torrefaction process
  Dr J Li, Dr E Ventura-Medina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass residues and waste, have a great potential to deliver a significant contribution to the primary energy demand, with the aim of meeting low carbon objectives.
  Computational design of hierarchical porous materials
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Modelling the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for continuous manufacture
  Dr M Jorge, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-Organic Frameworks, or MOFs for short, are exciting nanoporous materials at the forefront of many new scientific discoveries.
  Investigating secondary nucleation at the microscale using optical tweezing
  Dr M Haw, Prof J Sefcik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In secondary nucleation, already formed ‘seed’ primary crystal nuclei generate new secondary nuclei in response to a varied range of stimuli such as mechanical disturbance, shear stress from flow and the presence of impurities.
