Our Research Opportunities
Coventry University £7million Postgraduate Research Studentship fund
Coventry University is a top-50 placed (Complete University Guide 2019,) globally-connected university with research collaborations across the planet and multinational research staff and postgraduate researchers. We give as high a priority to top quality research as we give to top quality teaching. 92% of our research was rated as ‘world-leading’, ‘internationally excellent’ or ‘recognised internationally’ (REF 2014 – assessed every seven years)
Coventry University has a growing reputation as a successful research university with a strong international profile, investment and expertise in professional development for researchers, and an excellent track record in delivering programmes to develop research capability with international partners. We have committed £250m to research, through investment in our estate, infrastructure and facilities, and programmes and initiatives that support researchers.
We have a network of 14 multi-disciplinary Research Centres and a Doctoral College and Centre for Research Capability and Development which offers a home and a community to our 700 researchers, working on an expansive portfolio of research across the themes of: Safety and Security, Sustainability and Resilience, Health and Well-being, Intelligent Products and Processes, Creative Cultures and Global Learning, Education and Attainment.

Sustainable hydrogen production from municipal and agricultural waste streams
Within this area of research, you will master advanced wet chemistry and physical deposition methods for the preparation of electrocatalysts. Advanced characterization methods (i.e., SEM, TEM etc.) will be applied to assess electrode performance, and you will employ electrochemical methods to assess activity. You will also learn about electrochemical cell construction and optimise design to lower energy consumption.
Material monitoring for process control in the roll forming process
This PhD project is part of the Cotutelle arrangement between Coventry University, UK and Deakin University, Melbourne, Australia. The successful applicant will spend the 1st year at Coventry University and the following 2.5 years at Deakin University.
The supervision team will be drawn from the two Universities.
