New Fully Funded PhD Studentship – APPLY NOW

PhD Studentship in Fire Toxicity
An exciting opportunity exists to investigate the toxicity of products from burning materials.  Fire toxicity increases exponentially with fire growth – a small fire  produces a low yield of toxic products, but as it grows it becomes oxygen depleted,  produces 10-50 times greater yield of the major toxicants carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide, as well as hydrocarbon irritants and minor toxicants.  The work will use the steady state tube furnace ISO 19700 and on-line analytical instrumentation, including gas phase FTIR.  Data from large scale fires will be correlated with these controlled bench-scale tests.
This project attracts a tax free bursary payment of £13 863 p.a. for 3 years, and include tuition fees for UK and EU students.  For further information please write directly to trhull@uclan.ac.uk .
