  PhD Studentship (Sponsored by Lloyds Register Foundation) - Protection of offshore wind turbines using low-cost, damage tolerant, sacrificial coatings (ProCoat) (NSIRC 179)
  Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitigating corrosion of offshore structures requires the use of cathodic protection often in conjunction with dielectric coatings.
  Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design: Polymer Interfaces at High Resolution
  Prof S Lyon
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary research programme that aims, for the first time, to connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of protective coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of corrosion protective organic coatings and related nanocomposite materials.
  Development of high performance coatings for geothermal drilling applications (NSIRC 220)
  Dr M Riley, Dr S Paul
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background.

Start date. October 2019. Supervisor. Dr M Carnie and Dr P Barker. Sponsoring company. TATA Steel Colors. TATA Steel Europe is the second largest producer or pre-painted steel in Europe.
  Photocatalytic and antimicrobial properties of magnetron-sputtered bismuth oxide and its potential for water treatment application
  Dr M Ratova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photocatalysis is known as a promising and environmentally sustainable method of water purification. Photocatalytic water treatment is a cheap, yet efficient process as it is initiated simply by light irradiation.
  Anti-reflecting and Anti-soiling coatings for solar panel cover glass
  Prof M Walls, Dr P Isherwood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of clean, sustainable energy is one of the greatest challenges facing modern society and solar photovoltaics (PV) provide the best opportunity for rapidly expanding renewable energy.
