  Designing alkali-activated materials with maximised recycled content
  Prof J Provis
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
This project will form an essential part of the NWE Interreg project URBCON http://www.nweurope.eu/projects/project-search/urbcon-by-products-for-sustainable-concrete-in-the-urban-environment/) and will be conducted in partnership with a consortium of academic, commercial and public bodies.
  The integration of photovoltaic devices with carbon-fibre composites
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr D G Lidzey, Dr A Buckley
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
We seek a PhD student who will be an integral part of a team working on the development of perovskite solar-cell devices by spray-coating.
  Vibrational Control of Spin-Orbit Coupling
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark, Prof A Meijer
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The ability to optically control the spin of a molecular excited state would have important applications in fields ranging from biomedical imaging to spintronics and quantum computing.
  Understanding The Role of Spin in Organic Polaritonics
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
In organic semiconductors, the spin of the excited-state can vary from S0 to S2. This spin quantum number determines the electronic and photonic properties of the excited-states and device operation.
  Understanding the spin-entangled triplet-pair state in organic semiconductors.
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr J Clark
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Singlet fission is a process whereby one photon creates two excited states. This two-for-one mechanism could dramatically increase solar cell efficiency (from 33% to >40%).
  Spin-orbit coupling in synthetic semiconductor-protein complexes for solar energy harvesting
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr J Clark, Prof C N Hunter
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Singlet fission is a process whereby one photon creates two excited states. This two-for-one mechanism could dramatically increase solar cell efficiency (from 33% to >40%).
  Materials and processes for the abatement and degradation of organic pollutants in water
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Development and synthesis of zeolites for the conversion of sugars to biofuels and environmental applications
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round
A promising strategy to replace non-renewable fuel sources, as raw material for energy applications, is to convert renewable biomass into transportation fuels and value-added chemicals.
  Characterisation and design of heterogeneous catalysts for the petrochemical industry
  Dr M Conte
Applications accepted all year round
The development of novel catalysts for selective oxidation reactions is an area of decisive importance for both industry and academia.
  Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round
To achieve food security, we can improve the efficiency of food production while reducing the use and cost of pesticides. To tackle both challenges, efficiency and cost, we propose to select crop varieties that are more resilient against pests and diseases.
