Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Developing access to new molecules is a key objective for chemists, particularly to three-dimensional, sp3-rich compounds which show improved bioactivity compared with flatter structures favoured by recent strategies within the pharmaceutical sector.
  Stereochemical Evolution and Catalyst Discovery for Asymmetric Synthesis (RICHARDSCU20SF)
  Dr C Richards
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small molecule catalysts are transforming synthetic chemistry by enabling the rapid, efficient and sustainable generation of target compounds.
  PhD in Healthcare Technology Development using Biosensors: Novel Point-of-Care Lateral Flow Assay for Salivary Biomarkers
  Dr S Maher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is an incredibly rich matrix, a valuable source of biomarkers for a range of diseases, yet it is vastly underutilised in medical diagnosis.
  Cooperative catalysts for the conversion of sustainable feedstocks
  Prof D Wass
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is based in the Cardiff Catalysis Institute (CCI) and will explore new homogeneous catalysts in which multiple active sites work cooperatively to convert sustainable feedstocks into more valuable products.
  Effect of Induced Plasticity on the Very High Cycle Fatigue of aluminium alloy under biaxial stress field
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most important task in the design process is the assessment of cyclic loading since half of the mechanical failures are due to fatigue.
  Mechanical Properties of Interfaces in 3D Printed Single- and Multi-Material Parts
  Dr M Grasso, Dr H Hadavinia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacturing techniques can be seen as an important change in the manufacturing methodology as the final form is achieved through a bottom-up approach, via the addition of material in a layer-by-layer fashion.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
