  Micro-rheology of active matter
  Dr V Kantsler, Prof R C Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns microrheology of active matter - to study properties of biological microscopic constituents and its complex environment via optical microscopy and microfluidic methods.
  Floaters vs. sinkers: How do marine phytoplankton combat the biological pump?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Uncover the “genetic dark matter” responsible for maintaining buoyancy in marine phytoplankton. Test how abiotic and biotic stress impact buoyancy traits of marine phytoplankton.
  The application of sedaDNA to landscape archaeology
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. The opportunity to establish a methodology for sedimentary DNA (sedaDNA) as a viable technique for landscape archaeological investigations.
  Towards a mechanistic understanding of peatland reactive nitrogen cycling
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Peatlands act as large reservoirs of organic matter; however, environmental change processes, such as increased atmospheric nitrogen deposition, may lead to large emissions of greenhouse and trace gases from these ecosystems.
  Understanding the genetic blueprint of photosynthetic bacteria?
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Cutting-edge 3D chromosome reconstruction and “gene transplants” using CRISPR. Understanding the evolution of chromosomes of photosynthetic organisms.
  Fully funded MSc + PhD 4 year studentships in Analytical Science

Funding Type

PhD Type

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science. A new generation of Analytical Scientists.
  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
  Prof A Straube
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disciplines. Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences,. Subjects. Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology / Development.
  Asymmetric Clip-Cycle Reactions of Cyclic Amines
  Dr P Clarke
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cyclic amines are privileged pharmacophores present in many drug molecules and biologically active natural products, with the 5- and 6-membered rings by far and away the most prevalent.
  Brønsted Acid Catalysed Asymmetric Synthesis of Cyclic Ethers
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years there has been a drive by medicinal chemists to explore more 3-dimensional areas of chemical space. Cyclic ethers, such as the tetrahydropyran (THP) and the tetrahydrofuran (THF) rings, are the most common and 6th most common saturated heterocyclic function present in marketed pharmaceuticals.
  Decision making through artificial chemical intelligence
  Dr J Slattery, Prof I J S Fairlamb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Automation will transform the chemical landscape. Powerful robotic platforms can perform reactions or analyses much more rapidly than traditional approaches.1 Ever faster computers allow huge numbers of molecules to be studied in an automated way using computational chemistry.
