  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.
  Groundwater and nutrient dynamics in heterogeneous agricultural catchments - QUADRAT
  Dr J C Comte, Dr U Ofterdinger
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
In Irish and Scottish agricultural regions, groundwater is increasingly recognised as a major pathway for water and nutrient inputs to streams [1].
  Ice and fire: exploring relationships between glaciers, volcanoes and climate - QUADRAT
  Dr M Spagnolo, Dr D Mullan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Mountain glacier surface mass balance responds to changes in climate. The glacier equilibrium line altitude (ELA), the elevation at which net accumulation equals net ablation, has been empirically linked to both precipitation and temperature.
  The socioecological drivers of tourist decisions and their influence on wildlife tourism sustainability
  Dr D Lusseau, Dr S Cerroni
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
An ever-increasing number of people use nature for recreation and tourism across all ecoregions. Those activities now threaten the conservation of 5930 species and marine coastal regions are particularly affected (Lusseau & Mancini 2018).
  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].
  An integrated carbon capture and conversion process to produce mineral products for large-scale use
  Dr W Afzal, Dr M S Imbabi
Applications accepted all year round
Increasing demand for clean energy has led to significant research towards the development of energy-efficient and environment-friendly technological solutions of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) which encompasses methods to remove CO2 from the flue gas and from the atmosphere, recycling the CO2 for utilization and safe storage options.
  Application of High Frequency Waves to Improve Petroleum Production from Low Energy Reservoirs
  Dr R Rafati, Dr A Sharifi
Applications accepted all year round
In many oil wells the natural energy associated with oil is not strong enough to cause flow into the production facilities. In such cases, some form of artificial lift should supplement natural energy.
  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.
  Carbon Negative Cementised Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate Building Products
  Dr M S Imbabi, Dr W Afzal, Prof F P Glasser
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The proposed PhD will investigate the production of different granularity and morphology Precipitated Magnesium Carbonate (PMC) derivative building products to reduce the carbon footprint and improve the performance of the built environment.
