  Evaluating motor and cognitive function through gaze-control technology
  Dr D Souto
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gaze-control technology has proved invaluable in assisting people with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Motor Neuron Disease (MND) or Cerebral Palsy (CP), at times dramatically improving their quality of life by extending their ability to communicate independently.
  Proteomic approach to understand mitochondrial quality control under normal and stress conditions
  Dr H Lu, Prof S Hubbard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Defects in protein quality control lead to the accumulation of misfolded and damaged proteins, which play an important role in many diseases (e.g.
  Biologically-plausible neural network models of movement control algorithms
  Dr A Gilra
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of neural network implementations of control theory algorithms have been proposed, especially with the recent rise of machine learning.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr R Swidbert
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most animal movements are driven by muscle contractions controlled by the nervous system, but there is now considerable evidence that passive forces, originating in muscles, tendons or other tissues, interact with active forces to generate limb movements in both vertebrates and invertebrates (Page et al.
  Proteomic analyses of adhesion signalling in cancer
  Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Why adhesion? Cell surface adhesion receptors play key roles in the control of cell movement, survival, division and differentiation.
  Multicellular Cell Differentiation Model: The control of root hair patterning in Aspergillus thaliana
  Dr N Savage, Dr A Bishopp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil through hairs that grow along their roots. As such, being able to manipulate root hair numbers may be advantageous to the development of crops more resistant to drought and nutrient deficient soils.
  Optimizing drug schedules using control theory
  Dr F Sorrentino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seeking a Ph.D. candidate with background engineering to work on control of a cellular process known as autophagy. The effects of molecularly targeted drug perturbations on cellular activities and fates are difficult to predict using intuition alone because of the complex behaviors of cellular regulatory networks.
  Development of hybrid machine learning based strategy for bioprocess online control
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The background of this research is to explore and integrate a range of mechanistic and machine learning based modelling strategies to develop a multilevel digital framework (digital twin) for industrial bioprocess dynamic simulation and prediction, online optimisation (online learning), and product quality control.
  MSc by Research Programme: Jasmonate control of barley development
  Dr S McKim
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Control of antibiotic production through synthetic biology of bacterial hormone signalling
  Prof E Takano, Prof R Breitling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics due to an increase in antibiotic resistance. To produce these essential drugs efficiently in biotechnological systems, we need to have a better understanding of the regulatory mechanisms of antibiotic production.
  Robotic Implants to Control Body Functions
  Dr D Damian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project we explore a new class of medical robots – robotic implants, which reside inside the body for the repair, reinforcement, and control of physical functions for a long period of time.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.

  Modelling the spread and control of livestock and zoonotic infectious diseases
  Assoc Prof M Tildesley, Dr E Gorsich, Prof M Keeling
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical models are extensively used in both public-health and veterinary-health policy planning. Modern predictive models are now at the heart of policy decisions, and such models are having an increasing role in supporting decisions associated with livestock infections.
  Biological role of neurooestrogens in behaviour
  Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory primarily investigates animal behaviour through the lens of neuroendocrinology i.e. hormones. We are interested in non-classical ways in which hormones may act to regulate behaviours.
