Cell-free protein engineering using high throughput microfluidics

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Applications are welcome for a fully-funded 3-year PhD studentship as part of a Leverhulme Trust project entitled ‘Life not as we know it. Read more

Sorption Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps represent a promising technology to accomplish decarbonisation of the heating and cooling sectors. Within this category sorption heat pumps can recover are interesting for their eco-friendly properties. . Read more

Disentangle the water-energy nexus by using low temperature heat for water desalination

Climate change is already exacerbating water scarcity bringing uncertainty in the future of the water availability vs. abstraction (water stress), especially in delicate eco-systems. Read more

CO2 Capture directly from the atmosphere

The design of the forthcoming future is negative in emissions. Among the negative emission technologies options, those capturing CO2 directly from the air are called Direct Air Capture technologies. Read more

Earth, wind and fire: the effects of vegetation structures on the dynamics of wildfires

Wildfires are a growing threat to ecosystems and communities globally. Improved understanding of the processes which drive wildfires is essential to develop tools to mitigate their impacts. Read more

Numerical modelling of roots and fibres as soil reinforcement

Summary. This project will use continuum and discrete numerical techniques to model how roots and geotextiles can increase the strength of soils at risk of geohazards such as landslides and debris flows. Read more

Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains

Summary. This project will develop an "instrumented grain" for tracking granular flows, allowing lab-based experimental modelling (and eventually field-based monitoring) of geohazards such as landslides. Read more

Mechanism of CO2 transport in membranes for carbon capture applications

Applications are invited for postgraduate research leading to a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering. Carbon capture has shown great potential for tackling global climate change challenges but its deployment is hindered by the cost of the technology. Read more

Droplet-wise condensation on smart engineered surfaces

Condensation is ubiquitous in nature and industry, but quite challenging to understand! In particular, it is of paramount importance in many engineering applications, including heat transfer, fog harvesting, printing and cleaning. Read more

EPSRC and NERC InDustrial CDT for Offshore Renewable Energy (IDCORE)

A jointly awarded Doctorate in Engineering from the University of Edinburgh, Exeter University and Strathclyde University, offering ten places per year funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Applied Photonics

Our CDT has been funded by EPSRC and Industry since 2001 and we are the longest running Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonics in the UK. Read more
