  Optimisation of integrated continuous manufacturing processes.
  Prof M Zandi, Dr PZ Moghadam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational tools and model-based optimisation, control and more broadly decision-making methods and applications have grown dramatically over the last decade and opened opportunities for a new generation of digital representation and simulation tools referred to as Digital Twins.
  Development of electroceramics for next generation high capacitance Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors
  Prof D Sinclair, Dr J Dean
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity for an EPSRC-iCASE funded PhD studentship to work with the Functional Materials and Devices group at the University of Sheffield in collaboration with AVX Ltd to develop new and/or modified electroceramics for applications in Multi-Layer Ceramic Capacitors (MLCCs).
  New Knowledge and Tools for Topological Characterisation of the CSD Subset of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)
  Dr PZ Moghadam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently recruiting an outstanding PhD candidate for a fully funded studentship at the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at The University of Sheffield in collaboration with the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) in Cambridge.
  Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) for Gas Adsorption and Separation Applications
  Dr PZ Moghadam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently recruiting an outstanding PhD candidate for a fully funded 3-year studentship at the Chemical and Biological Engineering Dept.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Biogas enrichment and nutrient recovery from wastewater using bio-electrochemical systems
  Dr M Goel, Dr A Asthana
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrated biorefinery is emerging, sustainable, energy producing wastewater treatment, which can also provide a renewable source of various useful products, such as biohydrogen, bioelectricity, nutrients and other biobased products.
  PhD in glass and glass-ceramic materials for solar energy and environmental applications
  Prof Paul Bingham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD candidates with a passion for materials science, engineering, physics and/or chemistry, applied to the fields of energy and the environment, should apply.
  PhD in glass and glass-ceramic materials for waste immobilisation applications
  Prof Paul Bingham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD candidates with a passion for materials science, engineering, physics and/or chemistry, applied to the fields of energy and the environment, should apply.
  Nonlinear control of grid-tied inverters for stabilising future smart grids
  Dr G Konstantopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Power systems stability has been an active area of research for many decades. However, recently, the large number of renewable energy sources being integrated to the power network has started to significantly affect the stable and reliable operation of the grid.
  Microkinetic modelling of selective hydrogenations of alkynes over novel
  Dr S Vernuccio
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are currently recruiting an outstanding PhD candidate for a fully funded 3-year studentship at the Chemical and Biological Engineering Dept.
  Modelling and Simulation of Biomass Pyrolysis and Gasification & Syngas Cleaning using Plasma and Catalytic Technologies
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. To use this syngas for gas turbine power plants, the main technical barrier is the high tar composition in such syngas.
  Modelling and Simulation of Closed Cycle Gas Turbine for Power Generation using Solar and/or Nuclear Heat Sources
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To meet the ever increasing energy demand worldwide, closed cycle gas turbine power plants have the potential to complement the conventional coal-fired power plants and the open cycle gas turbine power plants.
  Modelling and Simulation of Pyrolysis and Gasification of Biomass and Waste Plastic
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass is generally viewed as a CO2 neutral energy source. Biomass pyrolysis and gasification can produce syngas. The process conditions of pyrolysis can alter the proportions of gas, solid and liquid products.
  Molecular Modelling and Simulation for Solid Adsorbents for Industrial Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is viewed as a key technology to reduce anthropogenic CO2 emissions worldwide. In addition to solvent based carbon capture, solid adsorbents for carbon capture have attracted researchers’ interest.
  Performance Assessment and Flexibility Study of Natural Gas-Fired Power Plants Integrated with Intensified Solvent Based Carbon Capture
  Prof M Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Natural gas-fired (mainly combined cycle gas turbine) power plants are becoming increasingly popular due to its cleaner nature. Solvent based carbon capture is the most matured technology for commercial deployment in natural gas-fired power plants.
