  Antimatter Chemistry: reactive scattering collisions of antihydrogen atoms with hydrogen molecules
  Dr M Law, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently interest in antimatter research has increased as facilities such as CERN have succeeded in trapping antimatter atoms to study their properties [1].
  Electrocatalysis for Energy Conversion and Storage
  Prof A Cuesta Ciscar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electrochemistry allows to convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy, and vice versa, with high efficiency and, therefore, electrochemical systems are excellent candidates to store energy from renewables and convert it back into work when needed.
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global warming is one of the most worldwide current challenges facing humanity, a direct consequence of the increasing CO2 emissions generated from the combustion of fossil fuels.
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing cost-effective adsorbents aiming at separating impurities from different gas mixtures is a real and necessary challenge for the industry, especially the energy sector.
  High temperature thermodynamics of Portland cement
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cement is the most ubiquitous product after drinking water, with 4.1B tons produced in 2017 alone, enough for half a ton per person per year worldwide.
  Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications
  Dr A Logsdail
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computation-led materials design for heterogeneous catalytic applications. PhD Supervisor. Dr. Andrew J. Logsdail http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/people/view/481607-logsdail-andrew.
  KESS2 East PhD in Chemistry: Synthesis of thermochromic Spin Crossover (SCO) molecules
  Prof D Bonifazi

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will innovate novel thermochromic molecules by accessing the research expertise and knowledge base in the group of Prof.
  Microwave assisted heterogeneous catalysis
  Dr J Bartley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD will be based within the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) (www.cf.ac.uk/cci) which is one of the leading centres for catalyst research focussed on improving the understanding of catalysis, developing new catalytic processes with industry and promoting the use of catalysis as a sustainable 21st century technology.
