Fully Funded M2A MSc by Research Scholarship: Massive Scale-up of Hybrid Nanomaterials for Multiple Industrial Applications

Swansea University - Engineering

Location: Swansea
Salary: The scholarship covers the full cost of UK tuition fees and a stipend of £12,500 p.a. for a period of one year.
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 30th June 2022
Closes: 2nd September 2022

Start date: October 2022

Project:

Nanotechnology is the control of materials at the ultimate limit – the atoms and molecules. It has now matured into a powerful technology capable of addressing and supporting real world needs, especially in sustainable materials and manufacturing. In essence: you can do more, and new things, with less material. 

Grove Nanomaterials Ltd is a high-tech spin-out company from Swansea University based on a novel method to produce nanomaterials, which is environmentally friendly – it is solvent-free and therefore effluent-free. The key challenges of this exciting MSc project, which sits at the cutting edge of research and industrial innovation, are to:

(a) consolidate and automate the scale-up of nanomaterials production, so far yielding a scale-up factor of 100,000x which has already been demonstrated, and;

(b) to process the nanomaterials into a hybrid functional form designed for a particular high-value market.

It would suit a committed and technically confident student with a background in:

  • physics or mechanical/electrical engineering (since the process employs an elaborate vacuum technology system), or
  • chemical engineering or chemistry (well suited to the materials processing and testing part of the work).

The balance of the project can be adjusted to some extent based on the background of the successful candidate. Our previous MSc by Research students have gone onto PhD’s e.g., at Cambridge or into high-tech companies. Moreover, Grove is itself an expanding company.

We recommend that you submit your application as early as you can in advance of the final scholarship deadline of 2 September 2022 as we may close earlier if sufficient number of applications are received.

Eligibility

Candidates must normally hold a minimum undergraduate degree at 2.1 level (or Non-UK equivalent as defined by Swansea University), or a combination of degree and equivalent experience to the same level.

We would normally expect candidates to have met the University’s English Language requirements (e.g. IELTS 6.5 overall with 5.5+ in each component) by point of application. 

Candidates must have the legal right to live/work in the UK at the start of their studies (student visas do not apply).
