Are you interested in pushing the boundaries of metal additive manufacturing? We have an exciting PhD opportunity within the MAPP Future Manufacturing Hub to develop the next generation of laser based additive manufacturing systems.
  Materials and processes for the abatement and degradation of organic pollutants in water
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of clean water is a global issue with societal, health, and economic implications. An important challenge is the removal of aromatic solvents and chlorinated compounds, which are very frequent pollutants in both industrial and rural areas, and which are highly toxic.
  Microporous polymers for energy and sustainability
  Dr R Dawson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microporous polymers are a class of porous material made from organic building blocks possessing high surface areas and chemical stability.
  Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials.
