PhD Studentships in Sustainable Manufacturing

Professor Eric S Fraga and Professor Panagiota Angeli

Applications are invited for two PhD funding opportunities in UCL Chemical Engineering for a September 2014 start. The studentships will be part of a multi-disciplinary project with UCL Chemical Engineering, UCL Chemistry and with Chemistry and the School of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at Loughborough University. This project seeks to develop routes to nanoparticle and printed coatings of technologically important materials for industrial printed electronic applications as part of a large University-Industry consortium. In Chemical Engineering, we will be looking at the process design elements, including scale-up, supply chain and life cycle analysis. The project will involve a combination of modelling and experimental work along with interactions with a number of industrial partners.

The studentships cover tuition fees plus a stipend based on the standard UK Research Council rate with London weighting. This studentship may only be awarded to applicants liable to pay tuition fees at the UK/EU rate. The procedure for determining one’s tuition fee status is outlined on the UCL website.

The requirement for admission for the MPhil/PhD in Chemical Engineering is a Master’s degree with merit or distinction in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Mathematics or a related quantitative discipline. Overseas qualifications of an equivalent standard are also acceptable.
