PhD Projects in Sustainable Chemistry

Fully funded PhD studentships available at the University of Nottingham EPSRC and SFI CDT in Sustainable Chemistry: HeatToPower investigates the synthesis and characterisation of thermoelectric materials to address sustainability challenges by converting waste heat into electricity. We are looking for organic, inorganic or physical chemists to take on the challenge of preparing new and exciting molecular thermoelectrics.

We will provide research training in synthetic or theoretical skills leading to a core PhD in chemistry but will also afford opportunities to work across disciplinary boundaries with physics and engineering co-investigators to optimise, characterise and exploit these materials’ thermoelectric performance as part of a multidisciplinary team. These posts would ideally suit those with a strong interest in sustainability and in the search for scientific and technical solutions to global energy issues.

Deadline: 25. February 2022.
