  The biological control of insect pests using predators and parasitoids
  Prof M D E Fellowes
Applications accepted all year round
This project will focus on building an understanding of the behavioural and physiological interactions of insect pests and their natural enemies (predators and parasitoids), and using this to develop better approaches to insect pest management in the field.
  Host preferences & biocontrol of variegated tortoise beetle in New Zealand eucalypt forestry
  Dr T Murray
Applications accepted all year round
New Zealand has an expanding eucalypt forestry industry with a focus on sustainable production of naturally durable timber that does not require chemical treatment for in-ground use.
  Functional Electrical Stimulation Control in Paraplegia
  Prof W Holderbaum
Applications accepted all year round
"According to statistics from charities such as Every Eight Hours and Spinal Research, there are an estimated 40,000 spinal cord injured people in the UK and a new person is injured every eight hours.
  Movement control using dynamics matching and anticipatory coupling
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round
"There is a lot of interest in explaining motor coordination and control. Such models allow for better understanding of the healthy coordination and provide diagnostic tools and starting points for rehabilitation solutions in case of motor disorders due to stroke or neural degeneration.
  Complex network control of stem cell derived cultures
  Prof S Nasuto, Dr E Delivopoulos, Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round
"In order to create a next generation of interfaces between prosthetic devices and the nervous system or to create next generation of intelligent robots – hybrids between artificial and biological systems, it is necessary to understand the principles that allow biological networks to achieve control of bodies.
  Designing optimal feedback control of stochastic gene expression: an interdisciplinary approach using control theory, statistical physics and machine learning
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr R Grima, Dr F Menolascina
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
Controlling gene regulatory networks can be a fundamental step for their use in the synthesis of therapeutic strategies as, for example, to correct the severe phase lag observed in the circadian rhythms of some patients.
  What Impacts do Invasive Species have on African Wild Mammals?
  Dr W Dawson, Prof R Hill
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Large areas of land in Kenya have been invaded by introduced plant species.
  Neuronal and biomechanical mechanisms underlying the control and plasticity of aimed limb movements
  Dr T Matheson, Dr S Ott
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Optogenetics for integrated, continuous processes for large-scale chemicals manufacture:Next generation manufacturing through synthetic biology.
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This PhD project will exploit new ways of working by providing training in a variety of approaches relevant to the Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology theme.
  Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila - identifying the underlying nutrient-sensing control of host immune regulators and investigating how altered nutrients affect pathogen prosperity
  Dr M Piper, Dr L Wakeling
Applications accepted all year round
PhD Student Position. Nutritional Immunity in Drosophila. Monash University, Australia and Newcastle University, UK.
