  Mechatronics Tracking using Inertial Sensors
  Dr J Economou, Dr D Galvao-Wall, Dr N Hettiarachchi
Application Deadline: 21 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Operators when walking or in vehicles would benefit having awareness of their position and posture. This is especially more challenging when GPS is unavailable.
  Radar Cross Section (RCS) of novel Radio Frequency (RF) countermeasure solutions
  Dr A Balleri, Prof M Richardson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MSc by Research. The project investigates cutting-edge solutions in the area of RF electronic warfare, with emphasis on false targets generation techniques to deceive hostile radar systems.
  Characterising Clostridium difficile defence strategies against bacteriophages
  Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Healthcare associated infections are a major problem for patients and a global health challenge.
  What happens within? Organellular interactions during plant disease and defence
  Prof M Grant, Prof L Frigerio
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop losses due to biotic stress contribute disproportionately to yield losses, generally accounting for ~25% of the crop. Thus, developing novel approaches to restricting pathogen infections of crops and consequently yields must be a key futurey objective.
  Nanoscale imaging of membrane pore formation in bacterial attack and immune defence
  Prof B Hoogenboom
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pore forming proteins are crucial armaments in the battle between organisms and their pathogens. Secreted as monomers in solution, these proteins self-assemble into oligomeric structures that punch holes into membranes.
  Flood mitigation schemes in rural communities in the south west of England
  Dr K Clarke, Dr A P Dykes, Dr M Ibsen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There have been several severe flood events in southwest England in recent years, including Boscastle in 2004, Dawlish in 2014 and Coverack in 2014 and July 2017.
  UCL Bartlett: PhD studentships in Digital Building Services Engineering or Sustainable Facilities and Asset Management

Funding Type

PhD Type

Digital Building Services Engineering with Skanska Facilities Services Ltd and Modus Services Ltd based at Ministry of Defence Main Building London.
  Bistatic UHF Synthetic Aperture Radar Phenomenology
  Dr M Antoniou, Prof M Cherniakov
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is funded by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) of the UK with the research conducted at the University of Birmingham, UK.
  Finding the right fungal friends: determining how plant defences against against insect herbivores are impacted by different mycorrhizal fungal communities.
  Dr A Frew
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Almost all plants on the planet are attacked by at least one, if not many, insect herbivores. Many of these insects have become pests of crops and they impact crop productivity.
  Transcriptional battles in plant-pathogen interactions: understanding and re-wiring gene regulatory networks to enhance disease resistance
  Prof K Denby, Prof I A Graham
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The severity of plant disease is determined by a battle between pathogen virulence and host plant immunity – understanding this relationship is key to developing sustainable methods of pathogen control.

Explore research at Cranfield University . Research degrees offer you time to pursue your ideas in your chosen specialist area of interest.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  Machine learning for Autonomous and Interconnected Vehicles
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr ARA Abdullatif, Dr S Kabir, Dr I Ghafir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyber-Physical Mechatronic Systems such as autonomous vehicles, and intelligent transportation rely heavily on machine learning techniques for ever-increasing levels of autonomy.
  Nucleic Acid Sensing During Virus Infection – Innate Immunity
  Dr J Rehwinkel
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus infection is a constant threat to the cells of all living organisms. To counter this threat, cellular receptors detect virus presence and activate potent antiviral immune responses.
