Improving materials for a better world: toward clean environment by rational material design

The replacement of current petroleum based fuels with cleaner energy source, the valorisation of waste, the sustainable production of H2 as powerful fuels, the replacement of the heavy Haber-Bosch process and the reduction of CO2 emission have one thing in common. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.

Atomistic and multiscale simulations of next generation energy storage systems

Supervisory Team. Professor Chris-Kriton Skylaris (80%) and Professor Denis Kramer (20%). Project description. Li-ion batteries have a vast range of applications from mobile phones and laptops to electric vehicles. Read more

Development of Nanomaterial Coating and Stabilising Strategies

Supervisory Team.   Prof. Xunli Zhang (Engineering, 60%); Dr Eugen Stulz (Chemistry, 40%). Project description. There are unmet needs to develop effective materials to absorb infra-red (IR) light, e.g., for IR signature management. Read more

Ultrafast Photoelectron Spectroscopy as a sensitive probe for molecular structure and dynamics

Supervisory Team. Dr Russell Minns, Dr Maria Krikunova (External, ELI Beamlines). Project description. Photochemistry involves the coupled motion of atoms and electrons on ultrafast timescales. Read more

Learning from historical cement sample stores

The Cements@Sheffield group in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering, University of Sheffield, is recruiting a PhD student to join us for a project funded by the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning authority. Read more

Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.

The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.
