The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Metal-organic nanosheets (MONs): Programmable 2D materials for use as sensors, catalysts, membranes and devices
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene hold enormous potential for use in advanced electronics, energy, separation and composite materials applications.
  Microporous polymers for energy and sustainability
  Dr R Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous polymers are a class of porous material made from organic building blocks possessing high surface areas and chemical stability.
  Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
