Lithium batteries are multi-material, multi-component systems where it is difficult to separate and recover materials of value at the end of life. As such, only a small percentage of these batteries are recycled and the rest are sent to landfill. This is a lost economic opportunity and a growing source of waste in the UK. The aim of this project is to develop a molten salt method of recovering materials of value from batteries.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Theory and simulation of phonon transport at the nanoscale

Value: The studentship covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (£4,109 at the 2016/17 rate) and standard stipend (£14,254 at the 2016/17 rate) per annum for three years.

Eligibility: This funding is available to UK/EU students.

Deadline: The closing date for receipt of applications is 30 June 2016.

The goal of this PhD project is to understand phonon transport in nanostructured and low-dimensional materials by exploring both their particle and wave nature through theory and (large-scale) simulations. A variety of theoretical models and simulation approaches will be developed and used to describe phonon transport, spanning from employing the simplified Callaway model, to the particle based Monte Carlo approach, and to the wave based Non-Equilibrium Green’s Function approach. Each model explores a different phonon transport regime and different phenomena. The unified phonon transport computational framework that will developed during the project will provide understanding to a large variety of open problems related to nanoscale heat transfer. This PhD project will be aligned with a larger effort to understand electrothermal properties at the nanoscale that will be initiated within a European Research Council funded project.

Microbiomics is one of the most exciting areas of current research. New tools, in particular next generation sequencing, have transformed our understanding of the microbial world. We now appreciate that the human microbiome plays a key role in both maintaining health and in preventing disease. It is also central to Unilever’s research, for instance, understanding the response of the skin microbiome to personal care products.
