Computational category theory

Applications are invited for a self-funded, 3 year full-time or 6 year part-time PhD project. The PhD will be based in the School of Mathematics and Physics and will be supervised by. Read more

Homotopy representations of p-local groups

The theory of p-local groups was introduced and developed by Broto-Levi-Oliver. These are algebraic objects that encode and generalise topological aspects that can be associated to a discrete group from a p-local point of view. Read more

Fourier optics

This project is in the area of numerical wave optics. These simulations are used in the design and analysis of optical systems in everything from aerospace to automotive, to biomedical research. Read more

EASTBIO Novel aptamer tools for Synthetic Biology and the control in cell and gene therapies

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Aptamers are rapidly developing oligonucleotide tools that consist of single stranded DNA or RNA molecules that are capable of binding nearly any ligand of choice with high affinity and specificity due to their specific three-dimensional structures. Read more

Bio-Acrylic Acid Production from Seaweed (BAAPS) (TODD_U22CASE)

Annually ~6.3 million tonnes of acrylic acid, with a global market of $12 billion, is industrially synthesised from propylene (a fossil fuel derivative) as a platform chemical for e.g textiles, adhesives, paints. Read more

Making Light Work With Bacterial Nanowires (BUTT_U22DTPR)

Inspired by natural photosynthesis and addressing limitations of purely synthetic approaches, this PhD project aims to provide proof of principle for light-driven chemical synthesis through the design and assembly of novel inorganic:biological hybrid materials. Read more

Lighting up biotherapeutics (SACHDEVA_U22DTP)

Over the last decade, several antibody-based biotherapeutics have been developed for treatment of cancer. These antibodies, often marketed as “targeted therapeutics”, bind to cell surface receptors on cancer cells and direct them towards apoptosis (programmed cell death). Read more

Novel methods and tools for genome-wide characterisation of enhancer elements (MOXON_U22DTP)

The correct spatiotemporal regulation of genetic programmes is critical for the development and function of complex organisms. The majority of vertebrate genome sequence is non-coding and includes many cis-regulatory elements (CREs) such as enhancers that control gene activity in a cell and tissue specific manner. Read more

Shining a bright light on skin pigmentation: the role of LC3-associated phagocytosis in melanosome uptake (MORRIS_U22DTP)

The epidermis serves several key functions in maintaining human health. The production of the skin pigment, melanin, is triggered in response to UV light and serves to protect the skin from UV-induced DNA damage that causes premature ageing and predisposes to skin cancer. Read more
