  Surface texturing of coated surfaces for demanding nanotribology applications
  Dr B Inkson, Dr A Leyland
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plasma-assisted CVD and PVD coatings, such as Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) and transition-metal ceramic nitrides (eg. CrN; TiN), provide improved friction control and/or wear resistance in bearing applications involving rolling/sliding.
  Uptake of ozone to the sea surface
  Prof L J Carpenter
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This funded PhD project is part of a £2M European Research Council (ERC) Advanced grant to study how gaseous ozone (O3) interacts with the ocean surface or “sea surface microlayer” (SML).
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Molecular Understanding of the role of Surface Functionality on the properties of cellulose films and surfaces
  Prof Steve Parker, Prof J L Scott
Application Deadline: 23 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Sustainable Chemical Technologies (CSCT) at the University of Bath has launched a joint PhD programme with Monash University, Australia.

Imaging confocal microscopy (ICM) is increasingly being applied for surface texture measurement of advanced manufactured components, including those for additive manufacturing.
  Detection of iodine emissions from the ocean
  Prof L J Carpenter, Dr M S Shaw
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This funded PhD project is part of a £2M European Research Council (ERC) Advanced grant to study how gaseous ozone (O3) interacts with the ocean surface or “sea surface microlayer” (SML).
  Development of cutting-edge microporous adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr A Majumder
