  Investigating the value of using emotionally intelligent artificial conversational agents to carry out assessments in higher education or healthcare.
  Dr A Money
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Artificial conversational agents, can be embodied (physical robots or digital avatars on a screen) or not embodied (chat-bots or digital assistants).
  Hearing colour and seeing sound - switchable polymer molecular imaging agents for visualizing disease progression
  Dr N Boase
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular imaging aims to use non-invasive techniques to probe and visualize molecules in the body, which can be used to measure biochemical processes and disease progression.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship - Stereoisomerism of antimicrobial agents and risks to freshwater ecosystems
  Prof B Kasprzyk-Hordern
Application Deadline: 11 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

GW4 FRESH is a consortium of the UK’s top research intensive universities. Bath, Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter and research organisations, British Geological Society and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.
  Functional imaging of liver using contrast enhanced ultrasound

  Analysis and control of multi-agent systems using partial differential equations
  Dr A Selivanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Smart grids, social networks, traffic flows, communication networks – all these are typical examples of multi-agent systems. It is common for such systems to grow rapidly in size and complexity due to the continuous introduction of new agents.
  Developing greener alternatives for peptide synthesis
  Prof M North
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptide synthesis (both solution and solid state) is of fundamental importance to the pharmaceuticals sector. They are therefore expected to play a major role in the future of drug discovery.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Peptide hydrogels as novel nanotherapeutic delivery agents enhancing the anti-tumour efficacy of radiotherapy
  Dr J Coulter, Dr G Laverty
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a pressing clinical need for effective localised cancer treatments. Addressing this need we will develop a novel drug delivery system comprised of a nanoparticle/drug releasing hydrogel implant.
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Socially Intelligent Artificial Agents (SOCIAL)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in exploring the future of human-AI social interaction through a fully-funded programme of doctoral training? The SOCIAL Centre for Doctoral…
  Discovery of novel cancer immunotherapeutic agents
  Dr Y Mehellou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although cancer therapeutics, mainly chemotherapy and radiotherapy, have been extremely useful in the treatment of cancer, this disease is still associated with high morbidity and mortality.
  Design, Synthesis and Biological Evaluation of novel inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway with potential application as immune oncology agents
  Dr R Whitehead, Dr K Finegan, Prof N Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Small molecule inhibitors of the JAK-STAT signalling pathway often possess interesting biological properties with many displaying potent anti-proliferative activity towards cancer cell lines.
  Small nerve fibre damage and sexual dysfunction in diabetes and obesity. A mechanistic assessment and effect of lipid modifying agents.
  Dr H Soran, Prof R Malik, Dr R Donn, Dr M Ferdousi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetes and its complications represent a growing global health burden, affecting an estimated 366 million people worldwide.
  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).
  Using pharmacological agents to investigate the mechanisms of the neuronal vascular coupling
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The changes in cerebral blood flow, volume and oxygenation that accompany increases in neural activity form the basis of non-invasive neuroimaging techniques such as blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) which allow human brain mapping.
