Development of resilient batteries : 3D tomography of electrode cracking mechanisms, and methods for mitigation

This EPSRC studentship is an exciting opportunity to work with the NanoLAB group at The University of Sheffield, the Faraday Institution FutureCAT project and industrial partners to determine the evolution/degradation of batteries in 3D using advanced tomographic methodologies. Read more

Continuous Manufacture of Materials for Energy Storage

Manufacturing high performance batteries is a key requirement to address the pressing challenges of climate change. Battery technology is critical in enabling electric vehicles and storing renewable energy. Read more

Sustainable Hydrogen Production Through Photoreforming of Organics Under Visible Light Radiation

As of 2020, the majority of hydrogen (∼95%) is produced from fossil fuels. This leads to several problems. first, the fossil energies are decreasing strongly; second, the use of the fossil fuels results in several environmental problems such as greenhouse effect and global warming. Read more

Understanding the hydration of ferrite in Portland cement

To increase resource use efficiency in the UK cement industry, the formulation of Portland cement clinker will need to include a higher amount of ferrite minerals, but the fundamental understanding of hydration (reaction with water) of those minerals are still lacking. Read more

Developing novel iron-rich cement

The cement and steel sectors are foundational to the UK and are essential to construct our infrastructure. Cement is the most manufactured commodity worldwide and due to the large demand and urbanisation, the industry is extremely resource and carbon intensive. Read more

PhD in Alloy development for “blue hydrogen” steam reformer applications

  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training
This project is based at the University of Sheffield and is sponsored by Paralloy, and seeks candidates with a 2.1 or 1st class degree in a STEM discipline. Read more

Learning from historical cement sample stores

The Cements@Sheffield group in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield, is recruiting a PhD student to join us for a project funded by the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority. Read more

Understanding Cement-Superplasticiser Interactions in Blended Portland Cement Wasteforms

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning, by either encapsulating it in cement, or another method, to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more
