Novel processes for the production of industrial inorganic materials (industry enhanced stipend)


   Department of Materials Science and Engineering

  Dr Theodore Hanein,  Applications accepted all year round  Funded PhD Project (UK Students Only)

About the Project

Cement and metal are the backbone of our infrastructure and economy. The aim of this project is to develop novel ways to integrate manufacturing and wastes recoveries in these foundation industries. The candidate will design economically viable manufacturing processes and identify process conditions which optimises yield and material performance, whilst minimising impurities with processing conditions suitable for industrial scale-up.

We are looking to recruit a graduate with a first or high 2.1 class honours degrees with a background in materials science, chemical engineering, chemistry, or a related discipline. Knowledge and experience in inorganic powders are particularly beneficial. Familiarity in high temperature process and relevant materials testing and characterisation techniques such as SEM, XRD, calorimetry, and thermal analyses is desirable but not essential. This project is partially sponsored by ALTEK EUROPE LTD (parent company: Harsco Environmental), and it is expected that the candidate will engage with industry supervisors and with some time spent at the company in Chesterfield.

The PhD student will join a dynamic team of researchers based in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at TUoS to develop research and innovation that will enhance clean economic growth in a sustainable and responsible manner. MSE at TUoS is a globally leading research centre in the innovation and development of materials to resolve global challenges. We are an equal opportunity organisation and value diversity at our university; we know that diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact. It is expected that the student will have a research training visit to Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
