Predicting the roles of anadromy and freshwater carry-over effects in the sustainability of threatened brown trout Salmo trutta populations

This PhD is based on developing new understandings on the ecology and conservation of brown/sea trout Salmo trutta. This is because human activities in freshwaters are driving major and unsustainable declines in freshwater biodiversity, with population reductions of over 80% since the 1970s. Read more

Agent-Based Modelling of Future Clean Energy Systems

Socio-technical transitions are complex and subject to deep uncertainty[1]. Indeed, topics previously considered to be subjected to scientific processes of `prediction’ – such as the retail price inflation index - are now increasingly considered to be steeped in deep uncertainty. Read more

Consideration of Environmental Features for Microgrid Dispatch Optimisation

With increased penetration of renewables into electricity systems world wide the behaviour of actors within the energy system requires increased consideration of uncertainty and environmental impacts to support the wider decarbonisation effort. Read more

Pan cancer Ex vivo immunotherapy screening in 3D models

Immunotherapies are a fast evolving therapeutic area in the treatment of many cancer types. Here at Sheffield we have been working on ex vivo drug screening as part of the EVIDENT trial (NCT05231655). Read more

Self-funded PhD- Understanding Cell Biology through Imaging

We study the trafficking and interaction of molecules and structures inside cells. Extracellular signals need to be processed in a correct manner for a cell to function properly. Read more

Self-funded MSc R: Understanding Cell Biology Through Imaging

We study the trafficking and interaction of molecules and structures inside cells. Extracellular signals need to be processed in a correct manner for a cell to function properly. Read more

Biodiversity footprint of quarry restoration

  Research Group: Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG)
Research Group. Applied Ecology Research Group (AERG). Proposed supervisory team. Dr Alvin Helden. Several other members of Biology staff with interest in this subject area could be part of the team e.g., Dr Tom Ings, Dr Peter Brown and Dr Sarah Hart. Read more

Molecular characterisation of scavenger receptor ligand binding.

Scavenger receptors have been identified as being important in Human disease and normal physiological responses. Scavenger receptors are a large family of cell surface receptors that are expressed ubiquitously. Read more

Managing traumatic wounds in zero gravity.

Invitation. Applications are now invited for a fully funded, multidisciplinary, PhD position in applied microgravity biomedicine and engineering at the University of Auckland. This project aims to develop a new technology for assisting wound care management in microgravity and long duration spaceflight. Read more

The role of ageing cutaneous fibroblasts in modulating melanocyte pigmentation

  Research Group: Centre for Skin Sciences
The aim of the project is to gain an understanding of how aged skin fibroblasts and their secretory phenotype contribute to ageing pigmentation and commonly associated disorders. Read more

High-speed astrophysics with ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM

  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
ULTRACAM and HiPERCAM are high-speed optical cameras that can take hundreds/thousands of CCD images per second simultaneously in three/five colours, respectively. Read more

Deep phenotyping of genetic syndromes associated with autism

Autism is an extremely heterogeneous condition. Some of this variability results from genetic heterogeneity. Some rare genetic conditions appear to have an increased prevalence of autism. Read more
