  Ligands on demand
  Prof B Hanson, Dr R Bourne
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current recycling of used nuclear fuel is based on the PUREX process; a solvent extraction process utilising tri-butyl phosphate as a ligand to extract uranium and plutonium.
  Switchable molecules for information processing
  Dr C Wood, Prof C Wälti
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project you will develop fundamental understanding of how arrays of electrodes can be used to switch molecules controllably and thereby provide on-demand access to e.g.
  Investigation of mechanisms of interaction/performance of Green Corrosion inhibitors for High temperature and pressure H2S/CO2 Corrosion Environment
  Dr F Pessu, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 12 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cost of corrosion is currently over $2 Trillion or 3% of the GDP of all G20 economies. Corrosion consistently presents a significant threat to the UK and world energy production infrastructure and manifests in various forms.
  How protective signals from the gut modify neuronal activity and behaviour, using C. elegans as a model system.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid protein misfolding leading to loss of neuronal function are fundamental pathogenic mechanisms of numerous age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s (AD).
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Multi-Objective Optimisation for Sustainable Steel Structures Employing Artificial Intelligence
  Dr KD Tsavdaridis
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will engage with Artificial Intelligence (AI) methods recently developed for structural engineering applications, as is proving to be an efficient alternative approach to classic modelling techniques, and attempt to reduce the percentage of uncertainty of the results as well as saving significant human time and effort spent in experiments.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Analytics and Society

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a 4-year funded integrated PhD and MSc in Data Analytics and Society, working on a project which has been developed in conjunction with external organisations.
  Dispersion Modelling of Polyaromatic Compounds
  Dr D Harbottle, Dr R Hammond, Prof K Roberts
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polyaromatic compounds are encountered in a range of industries from pharmaceuticals to petroleum. Unlike the ultrapure organic compounds, petroleum polyaromatic compounds have been shown to exhibit > 20,000 distinct structures, which makes predicting their solution behaviour difficult.
  The Effectiveness of Esters in Cooling and Lubricating Transmission Systems in Electric Vehicles-Dielectric Fluids
  Dr S Kosarieh, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy conservation and emissions reduction have become increasingly significant for automobiles due to high energy demand, fuel economy and environmental concerns.
