Extensive research has been undertaken to determine the mechanisms of corrosion in cast iron, and the factors that affect corrosion rate.
  Iron Oxidation at the atomic scale: an In-situ environmental TEM/STEM study
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fe and Fe-oxide (FeOx) based nanoparticles (NPs) have shown promising applications in physical and medical sciences. These include magnetic storage devices, catalysis, contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia.

  Studentship Opportunity in Deterioration relationships for a variety of water main materials
  Dr D Jesson, Dr M Mulheron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For something that we drink every day, water is a surprising problem for the materials scientist. there are no materials suitable for large scale water distribution networks that remain unaffected by their contents over time.
  Magnesium alloy implants: corrosion effects on its mechanical performance
  Dr Y Liu
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Resorbable metals, including magnesium- and iron-based metal alloy, were investigated intensively as biomaterials for production of orthopaedic implant and stents.
  Development of hybrid electrochemical systems for the upcycling of acid mine drainage into functional nanoproducts
  Dr R Crane
Application Deadline: 3 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Dr Rich Crane, Camborne School of Mines, College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences. Location:University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall, TR10 9FE.
  Plasma-catalytic synthesis of ammonia at low temperatures and ambient pressure
  Dr X Tu, Dr HY Tiffany Chen
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ammonia is an important chemical feedstock for the synthesis of fertilizers. Industrially, ammonia is currently produced via the Haber-Bosch (H-B) process by reacting N2 with hydrogen (H2) over an iron-based catalyst at high pressure (150 to 300 atm) and high temperature (400o to 500 oC).
  Exploiting Carbon Laydown on Solid Catalysts for Petrochemical Processing
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon laydown, known as coking, is a well-known challenge in heterogeneous catalysis typically leading to catalyst deactivation.
