About This PhD Project

Project Description

Six new fully funded PhD research studentships are offered in the School of Applied Sciences for a 23 September 2019 start. The School is made up of the Departments of Biological and Geographical Sciences, Chemical Sciences and Pharmaceutical Sciences.

There is competition funding for 6 of the 12 research projects advertised. Usually the projects which receive the best applicants are funded.

Successful applicants will receive a fully funded PhD opportunity to work with leading experts in development of next generation green chemical propellant for satellites. Hydroxylammonium nitrate (HAN) with the chemical formula NH3OHNO3, is a green liquid propellant that poised to replace Hydrazine in satellites.

The project will cover the following aspects:
1) Effect of nanoparticles on electrolytic decomposition behaviour of HAN solution.
2) Quantitative analysis into NOx released from the decomposition as well as
3) identifying additive that can reduce ignition delay of HAN solution. We are looking for a student with experience and specific interest in this area of research.

The studentships are open to citizens of the UK or EU only, and cover the full cost of tuition fees and an annual tax-free bursary of £14,764 for three years (RCUK rates). Successful applicants will have a very good first or upper second degree or Masters degree in chemistry or relevant subject. The course will begin in September 2019.

To apply, please send your CV and a personal statement to . Please indicate that you wish to apply for the project above and highlight Dr Jitkai Chin, as the supervisor. Please note that the deadline for applications is 25 April 2019.
