Sustainable clean energy and water management are among the most urgent global challenges, and pose fundamental scientific and engineering questions. We will address key research challenges that span the chemistry/chemical engineering interface, including: sustainable solar cells; energy storage and batteries; sustainable water supply; and water cycle and human health.

Research topics will be chosen from the broad range of themes that the Centre covers and will be supported by industrial or international partners.

Main Theme:

Renewable Feedstocks and Biotechnology: biofuels, biopolymers, biorefineries, platform chemicals

Applicants may be from anywhere in the world, but must not have resided, or carried out their main activity (work or studies), in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior.
