Phd studentship opportunity in Integrated Carbon Dioxide Capture And Utilization at the Department of Chemical and Process Engineering, University of Surrey.

Reference: 073019

 Studentship description

This is a fully funded Ph.D. project focusing on developing dual function materials (DFMs) that can capture carbon dioxide from an emission source and release it as a high value fuel or chemical upon exposure to a reducing co-reactant. By coupling carbon dioxide capture to an exothermic reduction reaction, the energy demand of carbon dioxide release from adsorption sites is balanced by the energy produced from the exothermic reaction.

Organization: This project will be conducted in the Chemical and Process Engineering Department at University of Surrey

Project: The focus of this project is to develop new dual function materials by investigating the catalytic transformations of carbon dioxide, catalyst performance under cyclic conditions and upon integration with adsorbent materials. The ideal candidate will hold a Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering or a relevant discipline. Prior experimental research experience is desirable.

Entry requirements

  1. Master’s degree in Chemical Engineering or relevant discipline
  2. UK/EU students
  3. Strong verbal and written communication skills, both in plain English and scientific language for publication in relevant journals and presentation at conferences. If English is not your first language, you must have IELTS 6.6 with at least 6 in all the components.
