EPSRC Doctoral Training Collaboration (DTP) Studentships

The University of Lincoln has actually gotten financing from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Study Council (EPSRC) to develop a Doctoral Training Collaboration (DTP), which will supply abilities and training to cultivate the next generation of first-rate research study leaders in locations of tactical value to both EPSRC and the University of Lincoln.

Our training program prioritises the following 3 thematic locations of robotics and expert system: clever energy, medical diagnosis and health care support group, and bio-physics influenced robotics, in which the University has strong research study groups. These research study groups will supply DTP trainees with an abundant research study environment and a broad variety of knowledgeable and brand-new scientists.

Each studentship will be connected with a particular job that will be developed to advance essential research study in computer technology or engineering within among the thematic locations. Interdisciplinary relate to other disciplines will likewise be anticipated.

Studentship applications are now open for entry into the DTP program, beginning in October 2021.

Please make certain to examine the eligibility requirements prior to you use. Generally, a trainee should have no limitations on for how long they can remain in the UK and have actually been normally resident in the UK for a minimum of 3 years prior to the start of the studentship. UK trainees will be qualified for a complete studentship, covering the expenses of House costs, a stipend to support living expenses for 3.5 years, and a generous research study training assistance grant making it possible for global travel and involvement in the leading conferences and seminar.

Although many DTP trainees should be UK citizens, we likewise have a chance for a worldwide (EU and non-EU) trainee. The global studentship award will undergo eligibility, and likewise the schedule of complementary financing (to supply the differential to the global charge rate). You need to connect with the lead manager prior to using this award.

Closing date: Sunday 13 June 2021

Smart Energy

Nanostructural style of MnO2 cathodes for rechargeable liquid Zn-ion batteries

Academic contact: Dr Guanjie He ( [email protected]), Senior Speaker, School of Chemistry

This job targets at boosting the partnership in between MSS Ltd and University of Lincoln, and to deal with the mass production of cathode products for Zn-ion batteries

The UK federal government has actually revealed a 10 Point Prepare For a Green Industrial Transformation in 2020, stressing the nationwide value for tidy energy research study. Offshore wind intends to produce 40 GW electrical energy by 2030, for that reason, the energy storage innovations are important to speeding up the shift to no emission cars. Zn-ion batteries in liquid electrolyte are among the appealing prospects for next-generation tidy energy providers due to their cost-efficient and safe homes, however the efficiency of cathode products restricted their massive application.

This job intends to establish inexpensive and high-performance MnO2 cathode products through nano-structural engineering. The system will be studied through the sophisticated products characterisation methods, the battery assessment in coin cells will be performed. The mass production of the products and grid scale battery application will be examined. This studentship targets at developing long-lasting partnership amongst our commercial partners (MSS Ltd., One electrical Ltd.) and the University of Lincoln. The routine travel (3 to 6 months) in between Manchester and Lincoln is anticipated to improve the links in between the University and the business.

Trainees can find out:

  • Products synthesis, mass production and characterisation approaches
  • Electrochemical analysis
  • Fabrication of batteries
  • Market analysis
  • Collective abilities amongst scholastic fields and markets.

The perfect prospect needs to have, at a minimum, a 2.1 degree in chemistry, products science, chemical engineering, or an associated discipline. They should show abilities and experience (or an ability for mastering) of the artificial chemistry, electrochemistry– specifically batteries. They need to be academically curious and believe deeply and artistically. They need to interact well in both composed and spoken English. They need to take pleasure in dealing with others from varied backgrounds and take obligation for the development and quality of tasks
