  Enabling synthesis of fine chemicals through heterogenized catalysis
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Dr C D'Agostino, Prof R Raveendran Nair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Double Exchange Spin Dynamics within Valence Delocalised Molecular Magnets
  Dr M Baker
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applicants are invited to pursue a fully funded PhD studentship affiliated with the University of Manchester and hosted at international neutron research centre, Institut Laue-Langevin (ILL), France.
  Hydrogen Transport and Trapping Mechanisms Controlling Embrittlement of Nickel Alloys in Low Carbon Energy Systems
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many current and next generation energy systems are reliant on the production, transportation, storage and use of gaseous hydrogen, often at high pressure.
  Development of a rapid screening method for Carbapenemase-resistant Enterobacteriaceae using volatile and non-volatile metabolite profiles
  Dr S Fowler, Dr T Felton, Dr W Ahmed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nosocomial infections caused by Enterobacteriaceae are a major concern to clinicians. Species include Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Enterobacter cloacae, all of which are prevalent in ventilator-associated pneumonia.
  Molecular aggregates in solution and their translation into the crystalline phase of pharmaceuticals
  Dr K Edkins, Dr E Bichenkova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) have to be in the solid state to be formulated, and due to improved stability, the crystalline phase is preferred.
  (ICASE) Studies of deactivation of industrial catalysts
  Research Group: Process Development and Integration
  Prof P A Martin, Prof S Holmes
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description The Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science is seeking a highly motivated graduate to undertake an exciting four-year EPSRC industrial CASE PhD project entitled “Operando Studies of Zeolite Active Sites and Their Interactions with Deactivating Coke Species Using Pioneering Vibrational Spectroscopic Techniques”.
  Development of Effective Corrosion Testing Approaches for Performance Evaluation of Organic Coatings
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr M Curioni, Prof X Zhou
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary project which aims to, for the first time, connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of protective coatings and nanocomposite materials.
  Low-field NMR studies to probe motion and dynamics in rock pore structures
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantification of transport and dynamics in rock pore structures is essential for understanding, optimising and enhancing oil and gas recovery as well as assess the capacity and effectiveness for CO2 storage.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  Establishing NMR chemical shifts as reliable reporters of atomic charge distributions in enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Prof P Popelier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are not only central to life but also to the growing need to harness elements of the natural world to the benefit of mankind.
  Understanding regulation of gene expression during development via an integrated computational analysis of ‘omics data
  Prof S Hubbard, Prof S Griffiths-Jones, Dr M Baron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic development requires exquisite control of the expression of large numbers of genes, integrating components from the genome, transcriptome and proteome.
  EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWANO)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Established in 2013 with EPSRC funding and now supported by the University of Manchester and industry, Graphene NOWNANO CDT offers PhD training in science, technology and applications of the fast-growing family of two-dimensional materials.
