  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round
"“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.
  Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery
  Prof A.V. Powell
Applications accepted all year round
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 applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Polymers capable of Self-Repair
  Prof W C Hayes
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Understanding Ionic Liquid Electrochemical Stability: Towards Superior Electrochemical Devices
  Dr K Lovelock
Application Deadline: 15 December 2018
Achieving a sustainable energy supply is one of the most urgent challenges facing the world. Fossil fuels contribute to climate change and their supply is finite.
  Unusual properties of New Inorganic Framework Materials
  Dr A Chippindale
Applications accepted all year round
"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.
  Developing novel drug delivery approaches to treat ocular disorders
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Ocular diseases affect the quality of life of millions of people worldwide. The leading causes of chronic blindness include cataract, glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration, corneal opacities, diabetic retinopathy, and trachoma.
  Fabrication of novel hybrid nano-carriers for pulmonary drug delivery
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round
Pulmonary drug delivery is a non-invasive route for drug delivery where the lungs provide a thin, yet extremely efficient absorptive mucosal membrane with a good blood supply.
  Microencapsulated probiotics for oral delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy, Dr D Charalampopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Probiotics are live bacteria that reside in human intestinal tract and provide numerous beneficial effects. Oral delivery of probiotics is viewed as an efficient therapeutic strategy to improve gut health.
  Novel formulations for oral care - developing a fundamental understanding of the formulation factors and strategies to enhance the retention of oral care ingredients in the mouth.
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Oral care has been widely recognised as a vital contributor to overall health. Modern oral care products including toothpastes, chewing gums and mouthwashes often provide a significant reduction in dental decay; they control plaque and prevent gum disease; they remove staining and restore the original teeth shade.
