  Investigating the effects of fragmentation and environmental change on tropical montane butterflies and moths
  Dr K Peh
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deforestation is a major threat to biodiversity in South-East Asia where more than 14% of forest cover was lost in the last decade [1].
  Quantifying the role of natural and anthropogenically driven geomorphic disturbances in forest landscapes on global carbon emissions
  Prof SE Darby, Dr GJ Roberts, Prof J Dash
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. This project aims to quantify (1985-2020) the extent to which the world’s forests have been fragmented by geomorphic disturbances (landsliding and river channel migration) and explore the implications with respect to determining the impacts of this fragmentation and loss on the global carbon cycle.
  The synthesis and photolysis of photoacid generators used in polymer resists for making silicon chips
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer resists are used as thin films in the manufacture of silicon chips. They are spin coated onto a silicon wafer and irradiated through a pattern in a mask.
  Establishing a Circular Economy for Leather Products
  Prof S Rahimifard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world’s first footwear recycling system was developed by a team of researchers at the Centre for Sustainable Manufacturing and Recycling Technologies (SMART) at Loughborough.
  Microstructure control in metal additive manufacturing
  Research Group: Imaging and Characterisation
  Dr W Mirihanage
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal additive manufacturing (AM) is rapidly emerged as a viable alternative to subtractive manufacturing. Among various AM techniques.
  Electrophysiological changes in ion channels in human haploid and diploid (spermatozoa and lymphocytes) after nanoparticle exposure
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr L Shang, Dr M H Brinkworth, Prof D Anderson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterial-mediated delivery represents a promising technique for repro- and geno- toxicology with a potential to improve the safety and efficacy of existing methodologies, including experimental gene therapy and sperm-mediated gene transfer.
  Ecology and conservation of blue ground beetles: from microhabitat use to landscape connectivity. PhD in Biosciences (NERC GW4 + DTP)
  Dr N Royle
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Nick Royle, Department of Biosciences, Centre for Ecology & Conservation, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter.
  Developing Artificial Intelligence Tools for the Identification of Sleep Apnoea
  Dr Y Zheng, Dr S Craig, Prof GYH Lip
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) occurs due to the repetitive closure of the pharynx during sleep, leading to sleep fragmentation and, often, daytime somnolence.
  Impacts of land-use change on tropical biodiversity
  Dr D Edwards
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tropical land-use change is a core driver of the global extinction and climate change crises. In the Edwards lab, we use field research, economic assessment and rigorous statistical analyses to determine the impacts of tropical land-use change on biodiversity, carbon stocks and other ecosystem services.
  PhD in Food Web Networks and Environmental Change: Exploring how natural and anthropogenic stress influence the structure and dynamics of communities.
  Dr A Beckerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The interactions among species define a food web network. In these networks, species have dynamics (e.g. numbers and biomass), the community has structure (e.g.
