  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

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

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ferroelectric (FE) materials offer many useful properties and are employed in various devices, including nonvolatile memory, capacitors, sensors and actuators.
  Control of organic gels for tailored applications
  Dr A Fletcher, Dr P Mulheran
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic gels are widely used in industry and on the laboratory scale to produce materials for a variety of applications in energy and nanomaterials.
  Designing colloidal films and membranes with complex interactions
  Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Porous films and membranes are important for applications such as adsorbing, separating and storing gases, cleaning water and soils, sensor devices and many others.
  Development of a spatially resolved spectroscopy probe for application in pharmaceutical drying processes
  Dr Y Chen, Dr C Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being the most widely studied PAT technologies, to date, most applications of NIR and Raman spectroscopy are carried out using standard measurement geometry without specifying and differentiating spatial arrangement between the incident and collecting optics.
  Improved Water Treatment via Densification of Flocs
  Dr P Grassia, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Water, whether it is required for domestic consumption, for industry or for agriculture, is essential for life. Increasingly however many parts of the world are facing issues of water stress and/or water scarcity.
  Investigation of pharmaceutical crystallisation using small angle x-ray scattering
  Dr Y Chen, Prof J Sefcik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) offers various ways to characterize nanoscale structures of pharmaceutical crystal and large molecules.
  Modelling the synthesis of metal-organic frameworks for continuous manufacture
  Dr M Jorge, Dr A Fletcher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-Organic Frameworks, or MOFs for short, are exciting nanoporous materials at the forefront of many new scientific discoveries.
  Nanoporous materials for removal of pollutants from water
  Dr A Fletcher, Prof V Phoenix
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Emerging pollutants have been linked to adverse effects in humans and wildlife, such species e.g. metaldehyde as a persistent pesticide, as well as pentabromobiphenylether, 4-nonylphenol, C10-C13 chloroalkanes and di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate, which are listed as priority hazardous substances by the EU (refs.
