  A soft sensor for die melt temperature profile prediction of polymer extrusion (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymeric materials play a major role in production industry and hence advanced process monitoring is invaluable for improving the product quality and process efficiency.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion (DTA)
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In polymer extrusion, the behaviour of the flow of materials along the screw shows highly variable nature as it is gradually changing from solid to molten state.
  EPSRC CDT in Integrated Catalysis – iCAT

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from eligible candidates are invited for fully-funded (fees and stipend) four-year PhD studentships, to integrate the second cohort of the EPSRC CDT in Integrated Catalysis (iCAT CDT) at The University of Manchester, starting in October 2020.
  Printed graphene based sensors for real-time and wireless monitoring of nuclear waste storage containers
  Prof C Casiraghi, Dr M Gresil, Dr Z Hu
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life cycle management of radioactive materials packaging is of fundamental importance because it ensures the safety functions of the waste container during the entire life cycle, from storage to transportation and disposal.
  Development of robust and effective downstream purification and analytical techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Research Group: Molecular Systems and Biomaterials
  Dr J Winterburn
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring, microbially produced amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  (BBSRC DTP) Isonitrile synthesizing nonheme iron enzymes: substrate scope and potential
  Research Group: Molecular Systems and Biomaterials
  Dr S De Visser, Dr A Green, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cheap and efficient synthesis of drug molecules remains a challenge and often leads to a large amount of by-products. Nature has developed a large range of enzymes for Natural Product Synthesis, but only few of them are able to incorporate an isonitrile group into a substrate.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing enhanced production and separation techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Research Group: Sustainable Industrial Engineering
  Dr J Winterburn, Dr P A Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  (BBSRC DTP) Isonitrile synthesizing nonheme iron enzymes: substrate scope and potential
  Dr A Green, Prof M Greaney, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to rationally design an enzyme for any desired transformation would have major impacts across the pharmaceutical and wider chemical sectors, leading to more efficient and sustainable synthetic routes to high value chemicals.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Intelligent Engineering of Bacterial Genomes
  Prof R Breitling, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to establish methodology for the intelligent engineering of biological hosts for the production of high-value drugs and chemicals.
  Molecular modelling insights into the performance of polymeric coatings containing active corrosion inhibitors
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Dr F Siperstein, Prof X Zhou, Dr C Avendano
Application Deadline: 27 January 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.
