  New Materials for Thermal Battery Insulation
  Prof A.V. Powell, Dr R Grau-Crespo
Application Deadline: 10 April 2019
"A PhD studentship fully funded by AWE is available to work on a project that seeks to develop novel thermally-insulating materials for thermal batteries.
  Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round
Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs.
  Dr P Vaqueiro
Applications accepted all year round
"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to work on the synthesis and characterisation of functional inorganic materials. The project concerns the discovery of new thermoelectric materials, which can be used in devices for the direct conversion of heat into electrical power.
  Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery: developing novel formulations to increase drug delivery into and through skin
  Prof A Williams
Applications accepted all year round
Human skin is a remarkable self-repairing barrier that controls the ingress of environmental contaminants and regulates water loss from the body.
  Nanostructured Materials For Energy and Devices
  Dr R Bennett
Applications accepted all year round
Functional Materials are increasingly being developed with nanostructures that alter their physical characteristics in comparison to bulk materials.
  Studying phase transitions by computer simulation techniques
  Dr L Bartok-Partay
Applications accepted all year round
Computer simulation on the atomistic level became a powerful tool in modern chemistry in the past decades. Computational techniques are widely used to augment experiments and make initial predictions, thus saving time and money by reducing the amount of experimental work.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round
"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery
  Prof A.V. Powell
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Polymers capable of Self-Repair
  Prof W C Hayes
Applications accepted all year round
A synthetic-focussed project, this will target the generation and materials assessment of novel polymers that are capable of either autonomous or stimuli-responsive repair in order to recover the mechanical characteristics of the pristine material.
