  Nanostructured membranes for selective toxic gas separation
  Prof P Budd, Dr M Attfield
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual-award between The University of Manchester and The University of Melbourne. This dual-award programme offers candidates the opportunity to apply for a project with a strong supervisory team both in Manchester and in Melbourne.
  Hybrid Graphene-based Composites
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr M Bissett, Prof I Kinloch
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The scope of this project is to investigate the possibilities for the use of nanocomposites based on graphene (and other 1D, 2D and 3D materials) in a broad range of thermoplastic polymers, with focus on engineering and high-performance engineering polymers.
  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.
  Understanding the properties of van der Waals heterostructures from transmission electron microscopy imaging

  Cleaner Fuels via Atomic Imaging and Elemental Engineering
  Research Group: Nano and Functional Materials
  Dr S Haigh, Prof C Hardacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis is a method to produce high performance fuels with a decreased environmental impact. For example, Fischer-Tropsch fuels can be generated from municipal waste and have 80% lower environmental impact compared to traditional fuel approaches.
  Monolayer Metal-Organics
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

pical IoT Edge devices collect data from several sensors and may also control several actuators depending on the target application.
  Evolving novel and unconventional methods for making precise angstrom capillaries using 2D materials, and exploring molecular separation through them
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angstrom-scale pores and capillaries have been studied intensively because of their importance in many natural phenomena and use in numerous applications.
  A New Generation of Terahertz Emitters: Exploiting Electron Spin
  Dr P Nutter, Dr D Graham, Prof T Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, the emission of extremely broadband electromagnetic radiation, spanning from the mid- to far-infrared spectral regime and covering the so-called ‘terahertz gap’ in the spectrum, has been observed from ferromagnetic thin-film structures when exposed to femtosecond pulses of light.

  Developing NMR methods to characterise water transport through graphene-based membranes
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene oxide membranes (GOMs) have shown significant promise as filtration devices since they are impermeable to many substances but not to water.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  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.
  Making monoatomic layers by physical methods
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene, many self-standing, stable, single atomic layers such as boron nitride (BN), molybdenum disulphide (MoS2), tungsten disulphide (WS2) etc., have been isolated.
