  Thermal Properties of Energetic Materials PhD
  Dr C Stennet, Prof J Akhavan
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slower burning materials such as propellants develop much lower pressures compared to detonating explosives, but over a longer time period, that may well lead to an effectively-static load on a structure.
  The synthesis of novel alkaline materials for carbon mineralisation to prevent climate change
  Assoc Prof P Renforth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available at the Research Centre for Carbon Solutions at Heriot-Watt University.
  Novel friction pairs for environmentally-friendly automotive brakes
  Dr S Kosarieh, Dr A Hassanpour, Prof A Neville, Prof D C Barton
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compared to the massive effort aimed at reducing diesel particulate emissions, wear emissions from friction brakes have received far less attention.
  Design principles for active solids
  Dr A Souslov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soft materials surround us and compose us. Biological functions rely on active components embedded in soft biological matter. For example, muscles move because molecular motors convert chemical energy into work.
  Next generation solid-state sodium electrolytes for battery and sensor applications
  Prof P S Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is on the development of sodium-based solid-state electrolytes for re-chargeable battery and sensor applications.
  Exploring 2D molecular arrays as a route to controlling the atomic structure of electrocatalytic carbon nanoelectrodes
  Dr T Chamberlain, Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 27 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This inter-disciplinary project, based across the Schools of Chemistry and Physics at the University of Leeds, will develop new nanostructured assemblies on surfaces to be exploited in electrocatalysis and sensing applications.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A New Approach to the Production of Cultured Meat with Enhanced Texture
  Prof I W Hamley, Dr R Wonfor
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. Future food production needs to meet a growing demand for food and changing diets, as the human population is predicted to reach 9 billion by 2050.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - Fundamental study of the inter-relationships between structure, physicochemical properties and sensory profile of emulsions to evaluate their potential as fat replacers
  Dr J Rodriquez Garcia, Dr T Koidis, Prof L Methven
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. There is a growing need to reduce calorie, fat, saturated fats and sugar intake, and a constant release of unsuccessful reformulated products onto the market.
  Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery
  Prof A.V. Powell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an opportunity to pursue a PhD in solid-state materials chemistry. The project will involve the synthesis of novel nano-scale materials for applications in thermoelectric energy harvesting.
  Nanostructured Materials For Energy and Devices
  Dr R Bennett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Functional Materials are increasingly being developed with nanostructures that alter their physical characteristics in comparison to bulk materials.
  Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research area concerns the fabrication and study of the behaviour of mesoporous electrodes. The main focus of the project will be to undertake the control of surface macro-morphology and nanostructure and to investigate how these properties influence surface activity and electrode performance.
  New Materials for Thermal Battery Insulation
  Prof A.V. Powell, Dr R Grau-Crespo
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

"A fully-funded PhD studentship is available to work on new metal-oxide materials, with applications in solid-state thermal batteries.
  Polymers capable of Self-Repair
  Prof W C Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A synthetic-focussed project, this will target the generation and materials assessment of novel polymers that are capable of either autonomous or stimuli-responsive repair in order to recover the mechanical characteristics of the pristine material.
  Studying phase transitions by computer simulation techniques
  Dr L Bartok-Partay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer simulation on the atomistic level became a powerful tool in modern chemistry in the past decades. Computational techniques are widely used to augment experiments and make initial predictions, thus saving time and money by reducing the amount of experimental work.
  Unusual properties of New Inorganic Framework Materials
  Dr A Chippindale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to synthesise and characterize new materials with open-framework structures, such metal phosphates, transition-metal cyanides or metal-organic compounds.
