  Prof L J Carpenter, Dr M S Shaw
Application Deadline: 10 March 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).
  Uptake of ozone to the sea surface
  Prof L J Carpenter
Application Deadline: 10 March 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).
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  Velocity Map Imaging Study of Atmospherically Relevant Gas Liquid Reactions
  Dr SJ Greaves
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will use state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methods to study the dynamics of atmospherically relevant reactions that occur at the gas-liquid interface.
  Thermal Properties of Energetic Materials PhD
  Dr C Stennet, Prof J Akhavan
Application Deadline: 2 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slower burning materials such as propellants develop much lower pressures compared to detonating explosives, but over a longer time period, that may well lead to an effectively-static load on a structure.
  Mechanisms and applications of collisions at liquid surfaces
  Prof K G McKendrick
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will study the dynamics of scattering at the gas-liquid interface. You will improve fundamental understanding of mechanisms of collisions at atmospherically relevant surfaces and explore the exploitation of this insight through new methods to probe the surfaces of technologically interesting materials.
  Stereodynamics of Molecular Collisions
  Prof M L Costen
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will study the dynamics of inelastic energy transfer and reactive scattering relevant to atmospheric chemistry, combustion or astrochemistry using state-of-the-art experimental and theoretical methods, to determine the underlying mechanisms and improve our understanding of chemical interactions in these important environments.
  Time-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy using Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibres
  Dr D Townsend
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in hollow-core photonic crystal fibre technology now permit widely tuneable generation of femtosecond light pulses in the ultraviolet spectral region.
  Ultrafast Transient Absorption Spectroscopy of Photosensitizers in Photodynamic Therapy
  Dr D Townsend, Dr SJ Greaves
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Femtosecond lasers with pulse durations comparable to the “ultrafast” timescales of molecular motion have become a powerful tool for studying the dynamics of energy redistribution following ultraviolet (UV) absorption in real time.
  Chemical design of a sustainable reactor for reducing oxygen and potentially carbon dioxide with industrial and climate applications
  Dr Simon Freakley
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.
  Next generation solid-state sodium electrolytes for battery and sensor applications
  Prof P S Salmon, Dr A Zeidler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is on the development of sodium-based solid-state electrolytes for re-chargeable battery and sensor applications.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  Bioactive Peptide Nanostructures: The relation between bioactivity and molecular self-assembly into diverse nanostructures
  Prof I W Hamley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into bioactive peptides includes work on antimicrobial peptides, amyloid-related peptides with relevance to protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimers, lipopeptides with applications in immune therapies and for wound healing and skincare.
  Computational modelling of intrinsically disordered proteins
  Dr D Nutt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Not all proteins fold into well-defined structures. These intrinsically-disordered proteins (IDPs) perform a wide variety of roles and functions within living organisms, for which their disorder is key, from binding to biomineral surfaces for controlling growth and morphology, to protecting plants against drought.
  Electronic Structures of Substituted Osmanaphthalynes and Related Metallacycles in Donor-Bridge-Acceptor Systems
  Prof F Hartl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemistry of transition metal-containing aromatics has attracted considerable attention both experimentally and theoretically.
  Nanostructured Materials For Energy and Devices

  Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research area concerns the fabrication and study of the behaviour of mesoporous electrodes. The main focus of the project will be to undertake the control of surface macro-morphology and nanostructure and to investigate how these properties influence surface activity and electrode performance.
  Solution-Phase Electronic Structure of Organozinc Reagents – Understanding Catalytic Cross Coupling
