  Water metabolism in cities: towards a deeper understanding of the lifecycle of drinking water in the urbanocene
  Dr V Inglezakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The urbanization trend is an undeniable fact worldwide in large and small cities. The urban conglomeration is continuously evolving as an organic entity that metabolizes energy, food and water into economic growth and waste.
  Circular Nutrient Metabolism for Mars Exploration
  Dr V Inglezakis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For any travel humans need practical and affordable ways to use resources along the way, rather than carrying everything that might be needed.
  Atomic/Molecular insights into the formation of valuable products from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lignocellulosic biomass is a green alternative fossil resource to produce fuels (e.g. transport fuel, aviation fuel) and value-added products (e.g.
  Clean energy technologies for a rapidly developing world
  Dr T Somorin, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world’s population is expected to exceed 9 billion by 2050, 30% higher than current estimates. Most of the growth and development are expected to occur in emerging and developing countries, where energy access remains a daunting challenge.
  Source detection and treatment of microplastics
  Dr T Somorin, Dr Y Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastics pose an ecological risk, causing starvation, suffocation, laceration and death of marine organisms and disrupting critical ecosystem services and biological functions.
  System design on co-production of transport fuel and value-added chemicals from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a national and global imperative to reduce reliance upon fossil fuels and, at the same time, to improve the efficiency of natural and renewable resource utilisation.
  Computational design of bio-inspired silica materials for carbon capture
  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.
  Foam improved oil recovery
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Typically in oil and gas production, only a small fraction of the oil present manages to flow out of an oil reservoir under the reservoir’s own pressure.
  New methods for removal of pollutants from water
  Dr A Fletcher, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants have been linked to adverse effects in humans and wildlife, such species e.g. metaldehyde as a persistent pesticide, as well as pentabromobiphenylether, 4-nonylphenol, C10-C13 chloroalkanes and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, which are listed as priority hazardous substances by the EU (refs.
  Robust modelling of biomass conversion processes to meet low carbon objectives
  Dr J Li, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass residues and wastes have a great potential to deliver a significant contribution to the primary energy demand, with the aim of meeting low carbon objectives.
  Sustainable paper making using foam
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the advent of 21st century electronic communications, paper remains one of the most widely utilised materials in the world.
  Valorisation of wet biomass waste for sustainable production of fuels and chemicals
  Dr J Li, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global solid waste production has seen dramatic increases over recent years. It is recognised that the development of alternative, cleaner sources of fuels and chemicals from wet biomass waste can secure energy sources and address environmental concerns.
  From fines migration to filter cake formation and back again: state-of-the-art in situ observation to understand pore scale processes
  Dr K Dobson
Application Deadline: 1 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use the latest 4D (3D + time) imaging methods to capture the porosity networks within the geological samples, and then track flow, and the transport of the suspended fine particles through that pore network.
  EPSRC and NERC InDustrial CDT for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE)

Funding Type

PhD Type

A jointly awarded Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, Exeter University and Strathclyde University, offering ten places per year funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
