  Biodiesel production from waste cooking oil using novel catalyst
  Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The policy of reducing fuel consumption, together with the increasing awareness on environmental concerns, have prompted extensive research worldwide on alternative fuel development, and an improvement in the performance of existing engines.
  CO2 capture with radiofrequency heating
  Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since all the UK’s industrial activities need to reduce carbon emissions 57 % by 2030 on 1990 levels as part of the “fifth carbon budget”, decreasing the cost of carbon capture technologies is an important concern for all energy intensive sectors.
  Developing AI approach to autonomous dismantling/packaging of nuclear installations
  Dr X Jia, Prof Shane Xie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At some stage in the decommissioning of nuclear installations (e.g., reactors and gloveboxes), it is inevitable that large metal structures (e.g., reactor vessels, gloveboxes, structural components) need to be cut into smaller pieces to be packed in containers, for temporary storage or permanent disposal or simply for transportation.
  Imaging nanoscale electronic structure at interfaces in molecular magnetic films
  Dr S Collins
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular films exhibit emergent magnetic properties arising from the interface between the molecular film and the support material, properties of interest for next generation device technologies.
  Innovative applications for radiofrequency heating
  Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
Application Deadline: 18 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently radiofrequency heating has been successfully used in fine chemistry and pharmacy considering the main advantages of avoidance of hot spots, very high heat transfer rate from inside out and easy separation of magnetic catalysts by external magnet.
  Minimizing industrial fouling
  Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fouling is a major industrial problem where solids/macromolecules accumulate on interior surfaces of process units and ancillaries forming dense layers that are difficult to remove.
  Nanoscale transport mechanisms in zeolites and metal-organic frameworks
  Prof R Brydson
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will build on recent work on the two- and three-dimensional imaging of composition1,2 and nanoscale optical properties3 in metal-organic framework (MOF) glasses.
  Pyrolysis of polymers with radiofrequency heating
  Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently disposal of wastes is a key factor in many companies. Polymers and plastics are not biodegradable so dealing with them is difficult.
  Radiofrequency controlled continuous polymer synthesis
  Dr J Fernandez-Garcia
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, the field of polymer synthesis is based on batch operations which have implicit drawbacks such as the use of large volumes of hazardous chemicals and low heat transfer rate.
  Stress modulated antiferromagnetism in thin film heterostructures
  Prof A J Bell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the challenge to develop new, high- density logic and memory devices, the concept of employing electron spin transport as the data vector (i.e.
