  Promoting self-management and developing resilience to protect and promote nurses’ physical and mental health and wellbeing.
  Dr Louise Hoyle, Dr Carol Bugge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nurses make up the largest part of the NHS Scotland workforce (43%) and nearly 50% of the global health workforce. Yet, nurses suffer more than average from health problems due to the physical and mental stress of their jobs.
  Landslide early warning: developing novel geophysical monitoring approaches to ‘see inside’ unstable slopes
  Dr J Chambers, Prof A M Binley
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Slope instability is responsible for considerable social and economic harm. In the UK, impacts are principally economic, through damage and disruption to critical infrastructure (e.g.
  Urban Situational-Awareness for Autonomous Vehicles

The Flight Dynamics and Control Laboratory (http://fdcl.seas.gwu.edu) at The George Washington University, Washington DC, USA is looking for a doctoral candidate in robotics and control.
  Bioorthogonal Chemistry and Fluorescent Post-Labeling for Real-Time Tracking of a Platinum-based Anticancer Drug
  Dr D Griffith, Dr D O’Shea
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-based drugs have a wide range of medicinal applications and are routinely used clinically as therapeutic and diagnostic agents.
  KETOGENIC DIET: An in vitro single-cell imaging and molecular analysis approach to determine and therapeutically target the control principles of neuronal bioenergetics for the treatment of epilepsy with ketogenic diet
  Prof J Prehn
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glutamate is the main excitatory neurotransmitter in the central nervous system (CNS)CNS. Glutamate receptor activation imposes a significant work load and energy demand on neurons which requires neurons to increase ATP production.
  Bioinspired worm-like nanoparticles for the delivery of anti-cancer stem cell agents
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer relapse and metastasis, the leading cause of cancer-associated deaths, is strongly linked to the existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a small sub-population of cancer cells defined by their ability to self-renew, differentiate, and form secondary tumours.
  Towards sustainable surface water ecosystems in India: Predicting the fate, transport and effects of urban wastewater pollutants in rivers (CENTA2-SGGE5-WHEL)
  Dr M Whelan, Dr M Powell
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Urban areas are a major source of water pollution in developing countries where a significant (but often unknown) fraction of urban wastewater is discharged with little or no treatment.
  Erosion hazards in river catchments: How resilient is critical infrastructure to climate change?
  Dr J Cooper, Prof A Plater
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The overall aim is to quantify how future climate scenarios will affect the frequency and severity of erosion hazards in catchments, the future risks posed to critical infrastructure and the vulnerability and resilience of these assets.
  Modelling wave-induced sea ice breakup on small and large scales
  Dr F Montiel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sea ice is a key component of the climate system, which is experiencing significant changes as a consequence of global warming. The rapidly decreasing sea ice extent in the Arctic Ocean means solar radiations are increasingly being absorbed into the ocean, causing further melting and weakening of the sea ice cover.
  Impact of Inflammatory Signals on the Regenerative, Anti-inflammatory and Immunomodulatory Potential of Human Mesenchymal Stem Cells and their Secretome
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Adult multipotent stem cells can be easily isolated from a variety of adult human tissues and organs including bone marrow and adipose tissue.
