Fabrication and development of hollow fibre membranes for advanced gas separation applications

This project will focus on polymer science, rheology, material/fibre science, gas separation, gas transmission modelling and spectroscopy for the manufacture of advanced performance gas separation hollow fibre membranes.

Number of places

1

Opens

4 August 2017

Duration

3 years

Eligibility

Students applying should have (or expect to achieve) a minimum 2.1 undergraduate degree in a relevant engineering/science discipline, and be highly motivated to undertake multidisciplinary research.

Project Details

This project will focus on polymer science, rheology, material/fibre science, gas separation, gas transmission modelling and spectroscopy for the manufacture of advanced performance gas separation hollow fibre membranes.

Fabrication – structure – property relationships will be addressed in order to optimise membrane performance with respect to a number of key applications.

In addition to undertaking cutting edge research, students are also registered for the Postgraduate Certificate in Researcher Development (PGCert), which is a supplementary qualification that develops a student’s skills, networks and career prospects.

Funding Details

This PhD project is initially offered on a self-funding basis. It is open to applicants with their own funding, or those applying to funding sources. However, excellent candidates will be eligible to be considered for a University scholarship. Tuition fees for 2017 for postgraduate research students at the University of Strathclyde are £4,195 for Home/EU students and £18,000 for international students. This does not include bench fees.
