About the Programme

We have no remaining scholarships available for this specific research theme. Scholarships are still available in our other Research Themes BeAST and Heat-2-Power.

In this highly collaborative theme based both at the University of Nottingham and University College Dublin, we are looking for students in Engineering, Chemistry and Physics and related disciplines. The projects will have a particular focus in materials science, flow technologies, crystallisation, organic synthesis, automation and additive manufacturing.

Combining flow technologies and additive manufacturing, our four Industrial Challenge Areas corresponding to the PhD project areas are:

  • Sustainability in multi-step flow reactions: developing intelligent purification and recycling to improve the efficiency and enable simple reuse and recycling of reagents.
  • Machine learning enhanced self-optimisation of reactions: development of apparatus and methodology to automate self-assembly and crystallisation of materials with improved properties and reduced waste.
  • Additive manufacturing (AM, 3D printing) of active reactors: development of new material, including reactive materials for AM of active reactors.
  • Continuous crystallisation: optimising the parameters of flow synthesis and flow crystallisation to directly control crystal structure of newly synthesised materials. Addressing the significant industrial challenge of preventing blocking when actively crystallising in a flow environment 

The first year of this PhD opportunity involves a student-focused and individually tailored programme of technical and laboratory training courses and workshops, designed to provide the students with the skills and confidence required for a successful PhD project. With the support of their academic mentors, the students are also provided with a unique opportunity to design and develop their research projects.
