Applications are invited for a fully-funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to work on Fabrication and characterisation of monolithic on-chip integration of III-nitride photonics and electronics.
  Water pollution control using polymer-inorganic complexes
  Dr F Clegg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Water pollution arises via several different sources, including municipal, industrial (in particular petroleum) and agricultural activities.
  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.
  SANS – SEMSANS for the study of hierarchical length scale materials systems (soft, hard and biological)
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr A Parnell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project would also be supervised by Rob Dalgliesh and Adam Washington from ISIS. Coatings underpin our material world by creating surfaces that have the desired properties e.g.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.
  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.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
  Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered about self-cleaning surfaces. an object that cleanse itself just by shining light on it? Such technology already exists, and the field is fast developing.
  Quantum Control: shaping light to enhance chemistry
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By modulating the light with which you excite materials we can enhance specific electronic, nuclear and even chemical reactions! The goal is therefore to set up a MIIPS pulse shaper and to adapt it to our Helios transient absorption system..
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
