Supramolecular sensors for neurotransmitters

Neurological diseases are a leading cause of disability worldwide. Neurotransmitters (e.g. dopamine) are key molecules in neuronal communication, making their detection and quantification vital for medical diagnostics and therapeutics. Read more

PhD studentship in sustainable mechanosynthesis of green battery materials

Applications are sought for a funded joint PhD position joint between the University of Birmingham (UoB) and Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und -prüfung (BAM) in Berlin. Read more

PhD in Sustainable Polymer Synthesis

The design and synthesis of new, sustainably sourced polymers and plastics presents a major challenge that would enable the transition to a sustainable plastic future. Read more

PhD in Predicting the environmental degradation of plastics

Understanding how plastics and polymers degrade in the environment is an important sustainability target. Our work in this area use innovative analytical techniques and simulated environments to understand how specific plastics degrade in different environments. Read more

PhD in Depolymerisation of Plastic Waste

Creating catalysts that can rapidly depolymerise plastic waste into added value small molecules is an important research target. Our work in this area are focused on expanding the catalyst design to make them more active and selective and to broaden the substrate scope. Read more

Perylene diimides as smart optical reporters for environmental sensing and bioimaging

This is a PhD project in the fields of synthetic supramolecular chemistry and photophysics. The research will be conducted at both the University of Birmingham (in the UK) and Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (in Berlin, Germany), under the joint supervision of Dr Timothy Barendt and Dr. Read more

Permeation of Hydrogen Isotopes into Fusion Reactor Materials

This project is co-sponsored by UK Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) / Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) Hydrogen-3 Advanced Technology (H3AT) Research Centre. Read more

Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors

This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors. Read more

Catalysts for mild-conditions ammonia synthesis and decomposition

Applications are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham. Energy storage technologies are a key part of the transition to a sustainable energy system, enabling the balancing of intermittent renewable electricity supplies and low-carbon transportation. Read more

Anomaly detection in sequential single-molecule data

Single-molecule measurements, for example current-time or current-distance recordings from single-molecule detectors, usually produce data that are characterised by large variance and high levels of "noise". Read more

Molecular Imaging of Conjugated Polymers

A funded PhD studentship is available in the group of Prof. Giovanni Costantini at the University of Birmingham to work in the field of molecular imaging of conjugated polymers. Read more
