  Chemosensors for atmospheric peroxyl radical investigations (CAPRI)
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard, Dr V Chechik
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric chemistry lies at the heart of a wide range of environmental issues of substantial societal and economic impacts.
  Understanding the changing sources of volatile organic compounds in the UK over the last two decades and implications for the future
  Dr J F Hamilton, Dr J Hopkins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are emitted into the atmosphere from a wide variety of sources and can be anthropogenic (man-made) or biogenic (naturally produced) in origin.
  Understanding the impact of trace level sulfur dioxide on air pollution and climate
  Dr P Edwards, Dr J D Lee
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use a newly developed laser induced fluorescence instrument to investigate the chemistry of sulphur dioxide (SO2) and its role in atmospheric particle formation.
  Developing new laser-based instruments to characterise optical properties of aerosol particles from road traffic
  Dr K Manfred, Dr D Carslaw
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Road traffic remains among the most significant sources of particulate matter (PM) pollution in the UK. With the decline in tailpipe emissions, non-exhaust sources – including resuspended road dust and tyre and brake friction – of PM are becoming increasingly important.
  Detection of iodine emissions from the ocean
  Prof L J Carpenter, Dr M S Shaw
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This funded PhD project is part of a £2M European Research Council (ERC) Advanced grant to study how gaseous ozone (O3) interacts with the ocean surface or “sea surface microlayer” (SML).
  Uptake of ozone to the sea surface
  Prof L J Carpenter
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This funded PhD project is part of a £2M European Research Council (ERC) Advanced grant to study how gaseous ozone (O3) interacts with the ocean surface or “sea surface microlayer” (SML).
  Spectroscopy, structure and stability of liquid crystal dyes: from nematic to smectic hosts
  Dr J N Moore, Dr S Cowling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. A variety of devices for colour and monochrome displays can be obtained by incorporating a dye as a guest in a liquid crystalline (LC) host, providing a flexible route to light-scattering devices that can operate in strong ambient light, including outdoors.
  Developing Magnetic Resonance Targeting Methods
  Dr A Kennerley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetic resonance targeting (MRT) is a novel method which repurposes the imaging gradient coils, inherent in most clinical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems, to essentially steer super paramagnetic iron oxide (SPIO) labelled particles to a target regions deep within a sample.
  Sensitivity-enhanced benchtop NMR spectroscopy
  Dr M E Halse
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy is powerful analytical technique with routine applications throughout the chemical and physical sciences.
  Laser studies of free-radical recycling reactions in the atmosphere and biofuel oxidation
  Dr T J Dillon, Dr A R Rickard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a project to study gas-phase reactions of organic peroxyl radicals (RO2) in lab-based experiments at York & elsewhere. These reactions control radical propagation and termination rates in low to moderate temperature conditions; RO2 are therefore key intermediates in biofuel combustion and atmospheric oxidation.
