  Investigating the value of using emotionally intelligent artificial conversational agents to carry out assessments in higher education or healthcare.
  Dr A Money, Dr T Koulouri
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).
  PhD Studentship – Predicting Skin Interactions and Permeation of Chemical Agents using Computational Modelling
  Prof J W Essex
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-Supervisor. Dr Thomas J Piggot (Dstl). The skin is the outermost barrier for most of the human body. The majority of chemicals that come into contact with the body will initially do so through an interaction with the skin.
  New antimicrobial agents for biofilm-related infections
  Dr K Fairfull-Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The adhesion of bacteria to surfaces and their subsequent ability to aggregate into colonies called biofilms is a significant problem in healthcare systems around the world.
  Accountable autonomy of software agents
  Prof W Vasconcelos, Dr N Oren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many tasks once performed by humans are now carried out by autonomous artificial intelligence systems. An important aspect of such systems is their accountability, that is, how their decisions and behaviours can be recorded, scrutinised and, if necessary, revised.

  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.
  Design and synthesis of novel, targeted, anti-cancer agents
  Prof H Osborn, Dr F Greco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is that the drugs used have poor selectivities for cancer cells and cause damage to normal cells and organs.
