PhD in Marie Sklodowska-Curie Doctoral Researcher in Carbon Capture and Storage: MISSION-CCS, Corrosion Assessment of Additively Manufactured Metals in Carbon Capture and Storage Infrastructure

University of Leeds - School of Mechanical Engineering

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Leeds
Funding for: UK Students, EU Students, International Students
Funding amount: Not Specified
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 13th February 2024
Closes: 17th March 2024
Reference: EPSME1158

Are you an excellent researcher in the field of Corrosion, Electrochemistry, Additive Manufacturing and/or Material Science/Degradation? Are you interested in technological development and cutting-edge research in corrosion science and additive manufacturing? Would you like to contribute to the safe, successful and sustainable deployment of Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) technologies worldwide?

MISSION-CCS (Material Science Innovation for Accelerated, Sustainable and Safe Implementation of Carbon Capture and Storage) is a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Doctoral Network (MSCA-DN) program that will provide a bespoke training environment for 13 Doctoral Candidate Researchers (DCRs), focussed on understanding and mitigating material degradation phenomena across the entire CCS chain. The interdisciplinary network consists of 16 internationally-leading organisations across 7 countries, who are at the scientific forefront of combining material science, engineering, physics, chemistry and techno-economics to develop the next generation of research and innovation leaders in the field of CCS. You will be funded for 3 years and will pursue a doctoral degree during this time.

The project will focus on assessing the feasibility of using additively manufactured alloys for CCS infrastructure, examining uniform, galvanic and localised corrosion initiation. To understand corrosion behaviour, specialised electrochemical techniques coupled with advanced lab-based characterisation techniques, such as electron microscopy, will be utilised. The combination of these techniques will allow the Doctoral Researcher to gain an excellent range of interdisciplinary skills that will equip them for exciting industrial and academic positions in the future.

You will have a first class or 2:1 undergraduate degree and/or a Masters degree, or equivalent, in Engineering, Material/Corrosion Science or a relevant Physical Science, with research experience or an interest in Corrosion, Electrochemistry, Material Science and/or Additive Manufacturing, and the flexibility to travel throughout the EU. 

Important eligibility rules for this position:

There are no restrictions on the nationality, but:

  • Applicants must, at the time of recruitment, have not yet been awarded a doctorate degree and be in the first 4 years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers. This is measured from the date that you obtained the degree which would entitle you to embark on a PhD.
  • At the time of recruitment, applicants must not have resided or carried out their main activity (i.e. work, studies, etc.) in the UK for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to their recruitment under the MISSION-CCS project. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account.
