PhD: Recovering precious metals from electronic waste to create new artefacts

This PhD will collaborate with chemistry colleagues at Edinburgh University and the Indian Institute of Technology in Varanasi India to take precious metals recovered from e-waste and create exemplar surface treatments and new artefacts in Gold and Copper. This is a practice led PhD where you will be expected to have some jewellery and metal design technical skills.

The aim of the project is to develop new jewellery & silversmithing from precious metals recovered from electronic waste to demonstrate the potential for a new sustainable supply chain.
