The Sustainable Environment Research Centre undertakes national and world-leading research into waste treatment and the sustainable production of energy from waste and grown biomass.
It brings together leaders from biology, engineering, chemistry, and physics in a single academic team combining their resources and skills in order to address major energy and environmental R&D challenges.
Team members have experience in operating lab scale, pilot scale and full-scale biological process plants, and have participated in a number of large national and international collaborative projects, both Research Council and EU funded.
SERC has already established itself as one of the most forward-looking institutions in Europe by achieving large grants for research projects in many key areas.
SERC has laboratory facilities at Glyntaff and Baglan and works with partners and institutions from across the world.
We welcome UK and international applications for postgraduate research, such as PhD and Masters by Research, in one of our areas of expertise.
