  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.
  Catalytic Conversion of Organic Acid By-products from Sustainable Processes
  Dr J McGregor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organic (carboxylic) acids are produced as by-products from a range of sustainable processes, e.g. in the aqueous phase arising from CO2 conversion via Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; anaerobic digestate residues; BSF larvae used for organic waste decomposition etc.
  Up in smoke! Terrestrial carbon cycle feedbacks during warm climates
  Dr J Whiteside, Dr I Harding
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Organic carbon preserved within sedimentary rocks (fossil OC) is a major carbon reservoir and plays a crucial role in the long-term evolution of atmospheric CO2 and O2, and thus global climate.
  Sustainable catalysis: Using solar energy for the oxidation of organic compounds
  Dr R E Douthwaite, Prof A-K Duhme-Klair
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. There is a clear need to develop processes that minimise the consumption of limited energy resources and reduce waste detrimental to the environment.
