Chemistry

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

A PhD in Chemistry will give you profound understanding of interdisciplinary fields such as nanofabrication, bioorganic chemistry, supramolecular synthesis, environmental and atmospheric chemistry and fuel cell research. These emerging areas are grounded in the traditional disciplines of physical, organic, inorganic, analytical and theoretical chemistry.

There are more than four thousand higher education organizations in Europe, from leading research institutions to small, teaching-focused universities. Europe itself is not as much different than other continents, reaching from the Arctic Circle to the coast of Africa.

PhD Studentship in The development of a multi-sensor measurement system for in-process defect detection of metal additive manufacturing

The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering
Campus Full time August 2018 United Kingdom Nottingham

PhD opportunity to support the development of a multi-sensor measurement system for in-process defect detection of metal additive manufacturing. [+]

Doctoral Degrees in Chemistry in Europe 2017/2018. PhD opportunity to support the development of a multi-sensor measurement system for in-process defect detection of metal additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as ‘3D printing’, is revolutionising the way we manufacture parts; permitting almost limitless design freedom and allowing more organic, more lightweight and more bespoke solutions. However production of metal parts by AM is a highly energetic and challenging process and the current state of the technology cannot produce parts with the consistency or geometric tolerances that are required for many applications. Through process monitoring we can improve part quality. Key parameters such as melt pool temperature, powder bed temperature and part form and part texture can be difficult to observe; requiring novel solutions. This PhD studentship offers the opportunity to work alongside leading researchers who are developing novel multi-sensor methods of measurement for AM surfaces. The multi-sensor measurement approach aims to fuse data collected by multiple measurement systems, allowing sources of noise to be rejected, and clearer insights to be made. The successful applicant will work alongside experienced researchers in developing a prototype multi-sensor measurement system, with responsibility for the development of the data capture and data fusion methods. Qualifications/ Education Excellent degree in engineering, computer science, science, or equivalent, qualifying the candidate for obtaining a doctoral degree Skills/Training Strong skill in computational methods or programming Good communication skills Ability to present scientific work in oral and written format Experience General engineering experience Experience with data fusion methods highly...

EPSRC iCASE PhD studentship, Characterisation of Condition-Tolerant Fuel Cell Catalyst Layers

The University of Nottingham - Faculty of Engineering
Campus Full time October 2017 United Kingdom Nottingham

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the area of improving the design of new fuel cell (FC) catalyst layers. [+]

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship in the area of improving the design of new fuel cell (FC) catalyst layers. Although Hg porosimetry and N2 sorption have aided understanding of FC catalyst layer structure, the difference between good layers and bad has not been adequately quantified and we cannot design a layer ‘from the bottom up’. Newer methods such as cryoporometry, FIB-SEM and X-ray CT will be coupled with the standard methods to minimise artefacts in layer characterisation. Characterisation data will be used to identify the reasons for different behaviours seen with differently structured layers and will define the role of the support in determining structure during layer formation. The ultimate aim is to enable design of carbon supports that lead to layers with the required structure and composition to give condition tolerant behaviour in an automotive or stationary FC. This project will address the issue that existing FC cathode layers can be susceptible to performance loss under cool, wet operating conditions. Applicants would be expected to possess at least an upper-second class degree (or equivalent) in chemical engineering, other engineering disciplines, or physical sciences. The stipend for eligible students would be £ £16,296 (figure for 2016/17 subject to inflationary adjustments each year). [-]
