Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in Reading

We have 24 Chemistry PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in Reading

Conformational dynamics of transmembrane molecular machines

About the project. A fully funded PhD position (tuition fees and stipend) is available in the group of Dr James Cooper (https://www.cooperchemistry.com/) at the University of Reading. Read more

Photochemical synthesis of new drug-like scaffolds

Our laboratory is interested in the application of enabling technologies, such as continuous flow[1] and photochemistry,[2] for the synthesis of useful functional molecules such as drugs, agrochemicals and materials. Read more

Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery

There is an opportunity to pursue a PhD in solid-state materials chemistry. The project will involve the synthesis of novel nano-scale materials for applications in thermoelectric energy harvesting. Read more

Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites

Snakebite envenomation (SBE), a high priority neglected tropical disease affects several million people worldwide resulting in as many as 150,000 deaths and around 500,000 permanent disabilities every year. Read more

New Materials for Solid-State Batteries

Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries are widely used in mobile applications. However, concerns about the availability of lithium and cobalt raw materials suggest alternative materials may be needed in future large-scale applications. Read more

Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs. Read more

Self-Immolative Polymeric Sensors

Stimuli-responsive compounds, such as self-immolative molecules and polymers,[1] have become significant targets in organic-based material development as systems of this type offer enormous potential in a diverse range of applications that span drug delivery, biological and chemical sensors, diagnostics, and degradable polymers or degrade-on-demand adhesives. Read more

New materials for solar cells

We have a vacancy for a PhD student to work on the synthesis and characterisation of new materials for solar cells. Hybrid lead halide perovskites are attracting considerable interest due to their potential as photovoltaic materials for solar cells with very high efficiencies. Read more

Scanning probe microscopy of nanostructure directed process and mechanisms at surfaces

Nano-structuring of materials allows for the development of novel physical properties due to changes in electronic structure, unusual interactions with the environment due to molecular confinement effects in nanopores and the ability to direct processes and mechanisms in desired directions by combining these effects. Read more

Unusual properties of New Inorganic Framework Materials

"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to synthesise and characterize new materials with open-framework structures, such metal phosphates, transition-metal cyanides or metal-organic compounds. Read more

Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.

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. Read more

Integrative approach to valorise vegetable waste

The FAO estimates that around one third of all food produced worldwide is not consumed, which represents around 1.3 billion tons per year, and is wasted throughout the whole food chain, from farmers to consumers. Read more
