Chemistry Postgraduate Study at Loughborough University UK 1230 views

Securing a sustainable fuel supply through controlled synthesis of low-dimensional catalysts is a major aim of new project at Loughborough University.

This project is led by a team of 8 physical scientists and engineers with complementary expertise in catalysis, modelling, material science and engineering.

  1. Underpinned by advisors from industry, academia and professional bodies and linked with the UK Catalysis Hub, SLowCat will revolutionise the next generation of catalysts for fuel and fine chemical generation from dilute feedstocks.
  2. Multidimensional catalysts, specifically tailored to manipulate fundamental interactions between particles will be produced, which utilise both top down (analysis of real feedstocks) and bottom up (controlling particle interactions from 0D to 3D) methodologies to design novel materials with tailored properties.
  3. The successful candidate will join a team of enthusiastic and talented PhD studentswho are expected to work together across the consortium, undertake experiments at Loughborough/national facilities (e.g. Catalysis Hub, DIAMOND) and present their work externally (conferences, outreach).
  4. Each SLowCat project requires different core skills and applicants should apply for the individual projects they are interested in.

Required Qualification

Applicants should have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in chemistry or materials science, a good aptitude for experiment work including excellent chemical synthesis/analysis skills.

English language requirements

Applicants must meet the minimum English language requirements. Further details are available on the international website.
