  System design on co-production of transport fuel and value-added chemicals from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
There is a national and global imperative to reduce reliance upon fossil fuels and, at the same time, to improve the efficiency of natural and renewable resource utilisation.
  Atomic/Molecular insights into the formation of valuable products from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round
Lignocellulosic biomass is a green alternative fossil resource to produce fuels (e.g. transport fuel, aviation fuel) and value-added products (e.g.
  In silico design of high-affinity recombinant antibodies
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Currently there is a trend to move from small drug molecule therapy to use of biologics such as monoclonal antibodies (mAb).
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
  Computational design of hierarchical porous materials
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round
Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Computational design of polymer thin films for flexible sensor devices
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round
Ferroelectric (FE) materials offer many useful properties and are employed in various devices, including nonvolatile memory, capacitors, sensors and actuators.
  Designing colloidal films and membranes with complex interactions
  Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round
Porous films and membranes are important for applications such as adsorbing, separating and storing gases, cleaning water and soils, sensor devices and many others.
  Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
  Dr L Lue, Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round
Engineers have traditionally used continuum equations to model processes, such as the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flow. These methods require constitutive relations that encode the properties of the fluid; these are typically determined empirically and have limited predictive capabilities.
  Direct Numerical Simulation of Ferrofluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round
Ferrofluids (magnetic or superparamagnetic fluids) are a special case of colloidal fluids, where single-domain, nanosize ferromagnetic partices are dispersed in a simple liquid.
  Direct numerical simulation of polymeric-fluid flows
  Dr D Kivotides, Dr P Grassia
Applications accepted all year round
Polymers and turbulence are two of the most difficult problems in statistical physics. In the past, the study of polymeric liquids was divided in two categories.
