Materials Science PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

We have 535 Materials Science PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students

Novel supramolecular biomaterials

Our current cryo-TEM findings show that. Protein-fibers & Protein sheets are generated from doubly His-tagged proteins + metals. This phenomenon was demonstrated with 2 unrelated proteins (Ubiquitin & Cas9) that differ greatly in their molecular weight and biological function. Read more

Understanding Galling Performance in Co and Fe-Based Alloys under Nuclear Plant-Relevant Conditions

Summary (250 words max; this will be used in recruitment publicity). Hard facing materials based on Co-alloys have long been utilised in nuclear power plants for their exceptional galling and wear resistance. Read more

Irradiation performance of electron beam steel welds for fusion breeder technologies

Structural steels based on body-centred cubic structures are a preferential option for first wall and breeder blanket components in magnetically-confined fusion tokamak designs, due to their enhanced resistance to radiation-induced void swelling, as compared to face-centred cubic materials, and to their high-temperature mechanical strength. Read more

PhD in Mono-Material Barrier Films for Sustainable and Circular Plastic Packaging Applications (MonoFilm)

Plastic packaging materials play a crucial role in today's society, offering advantages such as versatility, hygiene, safety, lightweight properties, and, notably, a low carbon footprint when compared to alternative materials. Read more

De Montfort University PhD Scholarships

De Montfort University is providing 18 fully-funded PhD scholarships offered within three clustered interdisciplinary research themes which students will reside within. Read more

Textile biodegradation and end of life strategies for material sustainability

This project focuses on the potential of biodegradation and compostability for the end-of-life management of a range of textiles, within the context of the biological cycle of the circular economy of textiles. Read more

Recycling and Reuse of Waste Wool: Enzymatic Extraction of Polypeptides and their Applications

This project focuses on the enzymatic extraction of wool polypeptides from low value wool materials or waste wool fabrics and developing potential applications for different end uses. Read more

Next Generation Electroactive Membranes (EMs) for Sustainable Water Purification

NTHU-UoL Dual PhD Programme between National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan and the University of Liverpool in the UK is a well-established programme, where students spending 2 years at both institutions. Read more

Accelerated Inorganic Materials Discovery Driven by Magnetic Resonance

This studentship will explore experimental and computational Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy approaches to probe the fast oxide ion transport (e.g., self-diffusion coefficients, diffusion pathways, dimensionality of motion) of oxide in inorganic materials aimed at establishing design rules for the discovery of next generation fast conductors.
