Project Description

A fully funded 3-year PhD position is available in the School of Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham to start October 2016. It forms part of an ongoing collaboration involving the DSTL and the Schools of Chemical Engineering and Chemistry. The project will involve the processing of novel materials, based on self assembly, into nanoscale heterocatalysts, and subsequent characterisation of their properties in comparison to traditional heterocatalysts. New materials formed by this approach are expected to exhibit interesting physical properties of relevance to power generation. The position will involve close collaboration with a second PhD in the School of Chemistry who is synthesising appropriate materials.

Applicants should hold a 1st or 2.1 class degree (or equivalent) in Chemical Engineering or Chemistry or a related discipline and be a UK/EU national (dual nationality is accepted if one is UK/EU). Experience of electrochemistry would be desirable. They should be a good communicator and team player.

Supervisors: Dr APG Robinson, Dr NV Rees, Prof JHR Tucker.
