Closes: 
Monday, 24 January, 2022

A 3.5-year PhD studentship is available from October 2022 within the Reisner Lab in the Department of Chemistry, funded by AstraZeneca. This PhD project will focus on the development and implementation of photo-flow techniques to enable green and cost-effective methods to perform challenging organic transformations to support AstraZeneca's ambition to reach carbon neutrality by 2025. A part of the project will involve decade-long experience of the Reisner Lab in designing photocatalyst materials based on inexpensive, robust, and easily scalable carbon nitride and carbon nanodots.

The Use Less Group has taken a top-down systems approach to revealing and pursuing the interventions that will have a big effect in delivering climate mitigation. For more than a decade, our work examining the drivers of industrial emissions revealing that "material efficiency" is the key to emissions reduction, seemed too far-fetched for an industry focused on volume sales. But now, material efficiency is a mainstream component of mitigation in both industrial and government analyses of climate strategy.

PhD Studentship - Low-impact electric motors

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Monday, 7 March, 2022

We are looking for a new PhD student to do excellent research on the specification, design and manufacture of new, low-impact electric motors. The materials required by existing electric motors create two major environmental problems: permanent magnets are difficult to produce and difficult to recycle; the copper-windings of conventional motors are difficult to separate from other materials at end-of-life, particular for cars, leading to a significant loss of quality in steel-recycling.
