Project Description

There is increasing awareness across the globe of the disposal of waste materials. The significant of the problem increases for waste with high heterogeneity, which complicates their recycling in terms of environmental and economic feasibility. The proposed project is looking to introduce an out-of-the-box solution for carbon-based materials waste problem. The project aims to develop an integrated system to recycle various carbon waste materials and converting them into nanostructures that can be used in energy storage applications. The project will utilise new green technology for the conversion process. Existing concepts that have been developed in the Advanced Materials Lab in Bournemouth will be explored further, and new ideas will be developed. This PhD studentship also aims to deliver novel battery electrodes based on the recycled materials with properties meeting the latest application requirements in terms of performance, safety and sustainability. The project is multidisciplinary and covers aspects of chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science.

How to apply:

Applications are made via our website using the Apply Online button below. If you have an enquiry about this project please contact us via the Email NOW button below, however your application will only be processed once you have submitted an application form as opposed to emailing your CV to us.

Candidates for a PhD Studentship should demonstrate outstanding qualities and be motivated to complete a PhD in 4 years and must demonstrate:

• Outstanding academic potential as measured normally by either a 1st class honours degree (or equivalent Grade Point Average (GPA) or a Master’s degree with distinction or equivalent
• An IELTS (Academic) score of 6.5 minimum (with a minimum 6.0 in each component, or equivalent) for candidates for whom English is not their first language and this must be evidenced at point of application.

Additional eligibility: The ideal candidate for the role will have received a First-class Honours degree in Materials Science, Chemistry, chemical engineering, or a related discipline. They will preferably have some experience with molten salts and/or lithium-ion batteries.

Funding Notes

Funded candidates will receive a maintenance grant of £15,225 per year to contribute towards living expenses during the course of your research, as well as a fee waiver for 36 months.

Funded Studentships are open to both UK/EU and International students unless otherwise specified.
