  NERC GW4+ DTP CASE studentship: Recycling and degradation scope of anhydride-epoxide co-polymers
  Dr B Ward, Dr A Paul
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The demand for plastics is vast, with 348 million tonnes being produced in 2017 alone,1 and the trend for plastic production is increasing exponentially year-on-year.
  Confined epitaxial growth of InP on silicon for advanced photonic structures
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr Q Li, Dr D Wallis
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the widespread use of mobile devices, the level of data traffic in the world is going up very quickly.
  Elimination at Source of Biocidal Agents from Fresh Water Environments by TiO2 Photocatalysis
  Dr C Pestana, Prof L Lawton, Dr B R Petrie
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herbicides and pesticides (i.e. biocides) are widely used world-wide. Many biocidal agents are persistent in the freshwater environment and are on the EU watchlist for priority and priority hazardous substances, as well as the Scottish Environmental Protection Agencies risk matrix for contaminants in surface waters.
  Reed Bed Use Within Scotch Whisky Distilleries to Treat Wastewater: A New Toolkit to Help Maximise Performance
  Dr M Taggart, Dr B Morrissey, Dr L Maricello, Dr P Gaffney
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The demand for ‘greener’ wastewater treatment (WWT) is increasing globally. In particular, there is a need for more sustainable ‘passive’ approaches that do not rely so heavily (if at all) on hard engineering and continuous energy and chemical intervention/inputs.
  Source Management of Pharmaceutical Compounds Using Novel Magnetic Nanocomposites in Photocatalytic Reactors
  Dr S Devalla, Dr R Prabhu
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Effluent discharges from hospitals and pharmaceutical manufacturing units contain significant amounts of pharmaceutical compounds.
  Thermal Properties of Propellants PhD
  Dr C Stennet, Prof J Akhavan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slower burning materials such as propellants develop much lower pressures compared to detonating explosives, but over a longer time period, that may well lead to an effectively-static load on a structure.
  Designing new porous foam catalysts PhD/ MSc by Research
  Dr P Clough, Dr J Sumner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many chemical processes rely on catalysts to enhance reaction rates and their development from a Material Science and Chemistry standpoint is constantly improving, this PhD (or MSc by Research – MRes) will investigate developing porous catalytic foams using novel methods, with cheap precursors, via sustainable and resource efficient routes.
  Development of a sustainable filtration technology for wastewater treatment
