  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Directed Co-Crystallisation of Pharmaceuticals: developing a predictive method for co-crystallisation
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we propose to use a combination of computational and experimental techniques to develop a predictive method for co-crystallisation.
  Polysialyltransferases as a target in metastatic cancer
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases.
  The impact of male partners on breastfeeding initiation, exclusivity, and continuation: An investigation of new and expectant fathers in the UK
  Dr E Doe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD research student on a project assessing the role male partners play in the initiation, exclusivity and continuation of breastfeeding, with the ultimate aim of intervention design.
  The UCL-Cambridge Connected Electronic and Photonic Systems (CEPS) CDT

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vision of the CEPS CDT is to create a new generation of researchers who are able to carry out world-leading research in circuits and systems which incorporate electronic, photonic and wireless components, thus providing future leaders in the creation of the connected electronic and photonic systems upon which society will depend.
  Identification of a biomarker of sensory dysfunction for patients who have developed neuropathic pain following cancer chemotherapy using functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) and machine learning.
  Prof D Steele, Prof L Colvin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Acute pain is intrinsically unpleasant and aversive but is useful as it has survival benefit. However, many people suffer from chronic treatment-resistant pain that lasts months or years, lacks survival benefit, seriously impairs quality of life and causes unnecessary suffering.
  Investigations into the neuroprotective actions of leptin and leptin-based mimetics in models of tauopathy.
  Dr J Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In neurodegenerative disorders like Alzheimer’s disease (AD), synaptic communication within brain networks are impaired leading to significant memory deficits and dementia.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Robotics and Autonomous Systems

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heriot-Watt University and the University of Edinburgh are jointly offering an exciting opportunity to study a PhD through an innovative 4-year PhD training programme, drawing on our extensive experience with postgraduate teaching and research supervision in the area of Robotics and Autonomous Systems.
  Dynamically-tuneable optical metasurfaces for laser implosion fusion applications
  Prof C D Wright, Dr J Bertolotti
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof. C. David Wright and Dr Jacopo Bertolotti. External partner. AWE PLC (Dr A. J. Comley). Inertial confinement fusion (ICF), a scheme in which powerful lasers are used to compress and ignite a cryogenic pellet of deuterium-tritium fuel, is one route towards a clean energy source of the future [1].
  Improving the diagnosis of cow’s milk protein allergy in children. Self funded Medical Studies PhD
  Dr J Peters
Application Deadline: 16 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead supervisor. Dr Jaime Peters, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter. Additional supervisors. Dr Zhivko Zhelev, College of Medicine and Health, University of Exeter.
