  Numerical Simulation of Sustainable Anaerobic Baffled Reactors for Wastewater Treatment
  Dr B Fraga, Dr S Sharifi
Application Deadline: 10 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diseases that originate in poor sanitary conditions cause 2.1M deaths every year. This situation particularly affects developing countries, as indicated by UNICEF and WHO, with only 56% of the population having access to sanitation facilities in 2010.
  Production of two-dimensional materials with multiphase flows
  Dr J Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have received significant scientific attention due to their exceptional properties. The most well-known of this class of nanomaterial is graphene, however, there are numerous 2D materials which have the potential to transform existing and future technologies across a wide range of sectors.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  A microfluidic approach to assess the effectiveness of stabilisers on product shelf-life.

  Investigating the effect of nanoscale vibration cues on material surfaces for preventing bacterial adhesion
  Dr P Mendes, Dr T Overton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms respond to vibration, and bacteria are no exception. It is well established that external vibration can affect bacterial phenotypes, including surface adhesion, proliferation and virulence.
