  Potential role of digital twins in seeking consensus for GDF siting
  Prof R Taylor, Prof EA Patterson
Applications accepted all year round
A new consent-based process for siting a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) was launched by the UK government in December 2018. Proposals for the implementation of this process are captured in a revised ‘Working with Communities’ framework published as part of the launch.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  Viability of novel processing routes to current and advanced nuclear materials
  Prof T Abram, Dr R Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Nuclear power accounts for 20% of UK energy production, making it a critical energy source for the development of society and economy.
  X-ray Spectroscopy Quantification of f-block Electronic Structure
  Dr M Baker, Dr D P Mills
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Applicants are invited to pursue a fully funded postgraduate studentship in the research group of Dr. Michael L. Baker and Dr. David Mills at The University of Manchester at Harwell, located alongside the Diamond Light Source and ISIS Neutron and Muon Source near Oxford.
  Development of novel coolant chemistry for use in dynamic reactor systems
  Dr F Scenini, Dr M Curioni
Applications accepted all year round
The performance of nuclear power plants, including pressurised water reactors (PWRs), can be affected by the formation of corrosion deposit.
  Unified high‐performance hydrodynamic modelling framework for offshore renewables
  Dr Z Ma
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
The UK is looking into the development and use of renewable energies to reduce carbon emission to mitigate its adverse impact on global warming and climate change.
  (EPSRC DTP) Lifecycle exposure and risk assessment for graphene and other carbon based nanomaterials
  Prof M van Tongeren, Dr C Bussy
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
The University of Manchester (UoM) is leading research and knowledge transfer on the production and use of carbon based two dimensional materials (2D materials), through the National Graphene Institute (NGI, part of the Henry Royce Institute, the UK National Institute for Advanced Materials Research and Innovation) and the Graphene Engineering Innovation Centre (GEIC).
  [EPSRC - iCASE] Microbe – radionuclide interactions in legacy nuclear waste systems
  Research Group: Molecular Environmental Sciences
  Prof J Lloyd, Prof K Morris, Prof S Shaw, Dr L Natrajan
Application Deadline: 29 April 2019
Recent work in the Geomicrobiology Group at the University of Manchester has shown that microorganisms can have a controlling impact on the speciation (and hence mobility) of key radionuclides in a broad range of natural and engineered systems.
  Determining the Gas Adsorption Behaviour of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) by In-situ X-ray Diffraction
  Dr M Attfield, Dr I Vitorica-Yrezabal, Dr G Whitehead
Application Deadline: 12 April 2019
A EPSRC DTG funded 42 month PhD Studentship is available in the Centre for Nanoporous Materials, School of Chemistry for an excellent chemist in the field of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs).
  Evaluation of Uranium Retention in Geological Minerals at the Sub-Micron Level
  Dr L Natrajan, Prof S Shaw, Prof N Kaltsoyannis
Application Deadline: 8 April 2019
Uranium (U) is a key contaminant at many nuclear sites and its remediation remains a significant issue, as its speciation and mobility is complex.
