  Large Scale Bioenergy & BECCS Net Negative Emission Strategies & the Potential Role of Waste & Residue Feedstocks
  Dr A Lea-Langton, Dr A Welfle, Dr C Gough
Application Deadline: 24 March 2019
Background. More than 85% of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) scenarios for achieving the emissions targets of the ‘Paris Agreement’ are reliant on net negative emissions in the second half of this century.
  Numerical Modelling of Melt Flows in Polymer Extrusion
  Research Group: Polymers and Composites
  Dr C Abeykoon, Dr W Mirihanage, Dr J Wilson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
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.
  Combined modulation excitation neutron and X-ray methods to understand catalytic systems
  Prof C Hardacre
Applications accepted all year round
A longstanding challenge in liquid phase chemical science, is understanding the evolution of atomic and molecular structure of catalytically active sites during chemical reaction processes.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Application Deadline: 26 April 2019
Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Cross-linking 2D metal sulfides: An elegant solution to sour corrosion
  Dr R Lindsay, Dr D Lewis
Application Deadline: 30 April 2019
Corrosion is an omnipresent concern in geothermal power plants and oilfield infrastructure, costing more than £1.1 billion per annum.
  Modelling environmentally assisted cracking in Ni-based superalloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr J Fonseca
Applications accepted all year round
Ni-based superalloys in aircraft engines are routinely subjected to temperatures in the range of 650-700oC during operating conditions.
  Exploring the processes of nucleation and growth in the oxidation of zirconium alloy fuel rods
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Dr C Race
Applications accepted all year round
The pellets of uranium oxide fissile fuel in pressurised water reactors are contained within tubes of zirconium alloy - the fuel clad.
  Mechanistic Studies of Fatigue in Austenitic Stainless Steels in a Pressurised Water Reactor Primary Coolant
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr F Scenini, Dr J Fonseca, Prof G Burke
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
Introduction. This project represents an exciting opportunity to work closely with Rolls-Royce in an active international research area and the Materials Performance Centre (MPC).
  Investigating hydride growth mechanisms in zirconium alloys
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr P Shanthraj, Prof M Preuss
Applications accepted all year round
Zirconium alloys are most commonly used as the fuel cladding material in nuclear reactors. Hydrogen uptake in these alloys occurs as a result of aqueous corrosion during service, and the absorbed hydrogen precipitate out of solution as hydrides once its solubility limit in the alloy is exceeded.
  Production and application of graphene materials
  Dr H Badenhorst
Applications accepted all year round
Technologies and our economy in general, usually advance either by incremental developments or by quantum leaps.
