  Antimatter Chemistry: reactive scattering collisions of antihydrogen atoms with hydrogen molecules
  Dr M Law, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round
Recently interest in antimatter research has increased as facilities such as CERN have succeeded in trapping antimatter atoms to study their properties [1].
  Synthesis and Investigation of Novel Ionic Conductors
  Dr A McLaughlin, Dr A Martinez-Felipe
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Fuel cells convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy with high efficiency and low emission of pollutants. In a fuel cell, the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen produces water and electricity and as such provides a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
  Acoustic sensor to characterise gas mixtures
  Dr D Vega-Maza, Dr W Afzal
Applications accepted all year round
The speed of sound is a very accurate, fast and non-destructive method to determine fundamental properties of matter [1].
  Biogas upgrading by means of cyclic adsorption processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This project will study a frontier technology to decrease the overall current energy penalty of the biogas upgrading process.
  Biomass/CO2 Conversion to Chemicals and Energy
  Dr X Wang, Dr P Kechagiopoulos
Applications accepted all year round
Fossil fuels coal, petroleum crude oil and natural gas, as sources of thermal energy, fuels and chemicals, have been predominant in the world’s energy supply.
  Development of advanced adsorbents for gas separation processes
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
This experimental project will face the global challenge of reducing emissions from industrial activities. The research candidate will develop advanced adsorbent materials aiming at the separation of undesired species and/or impurities from industrial gas mixtures.
  Hybrid Catalytic Systems for Sustainable Chemical Processing
  Dr X Wang, Dr D Vega-Maza
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Catalysis plays a critical role in modern society, where 90% of all chemical processes involve heterogeneous catalysts. Nevertheless, heterogeneous and biological catalysis is still considered as one of the top 24 challenges in chemistry when asking “what’s next”.
  Innovative Tandem Catalysis for Clean Chemical Synthesis
  Dr X Wang, Prof J Anderson
Applications accepted all year round
Catalysis plays a critical role in modern society, where 90% of all chemical processes involve heterogeneous catalysts. Nevertheless, heterogeneous and biological catalysis is still considered as one of the top 24 challenges in chemistry when asking “what’s next” in 2015.
  Microwave-assisted pre-treatment for the cost-effective anaerobic digestion of lignocellulosic substrates
  Dr C Fernandez-Martin, Dr D Dionisi
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a promising technology for the treatment of organic solid waste and wastewater, as it combines energy recovery with waste treatment.
  Atmospheric ice nucleating particles - is there a fingerprint of past changes in polar snow and ice?
  Dr M Frey, Dr A Kirchgaessner
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
BACKGROUND. Cloud droplets freeze homogeneously at temperatures below -37ºC, but the presence of ice nucleating particles (INP) can induce freezing at much higher temperatures.
