  MSc by Research Programme: Identifying key regulators of growth-arrested states in Pseudomonas aeruginosa
  Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Factors Controlling Protein Metabolism and Growth in the Intertidal Limpet Patella vulgata
  Dr K Fraser, Dr B Ciotti, Dr R Billington
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

While growth is a fundamental process in all organisms, little is known of the factors that govern individual growth performance in marine animals in situ.
  PhD in Engineering: Defect Simulations and Material Growth of III-V Nanostructures – European Industrial Doctorate (DESIGN-EID)
  Dr V P Georgiev
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Information.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for improved targeted delivery of growth factors
  Dr V Chechik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) can be heated by applying oscillating magnetic field. MNPs can hence be used to thermally destroy biological tissue (e.g., cancer cells) by remote magnetic activation.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  The Hippo pathway and Yap1 in vascular growth control in development and disease
  Prof B Hogan, Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lymphatic vessels play roles in the drainage of tissue fluid, trafficking of immune cells and the metastatic spread of cancer.
  Fishing for metabolic clues: Role of the Hippo/Yap pathway in reprogramming metabolism in liver cancer
  Dr A. Cox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Hippo/Yap pathway is an evolutionarily conserved cascade that plays a fundamental role in governing organ size control, stem cell homeostasis and cancer.
  Watching the Hippo pathway in real time in growing organs
  Dr K. Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new frontier in biomedical research will involve watching individual proteins work in real time, in living organs. Traditionally, researchers have drawn conclusions about gene function using indirect techniques that only allow us to infer what a gene normally does, without actually watching it work.
  A microstructural mechanobiological model of hair growth
  Research Group: nCATS
  Dr G. Limbert
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. G Limbert and A Page. Project description. Personal care products fuel a multi-billion pounds industry which relies more and more on advanced multiphysics computational simulations to accelerate development and assist in the design decision-making process.
  Selective epitaxial growth of Silicon Carbide thin film materials
  Dr M Myronov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is an exciting opportunity to be involved in innovative and pioneering research on selective epitaxial growth of silicon carbide (SiC) semiconductor material.
  A multiple modality approach for targeting treatment-resistant ovarian cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) accounts for 70% of ovarian cancer (OvCa) deaths and its five-year survival rate is 43%.
  mRNA translation reprogramming and metabolic re-wiring in response to ribosome-targeted therapies
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr J Kang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increased synthesis and activity of ribosomes are associated with oncogenesis downstream of the major oncogenes including MYC, RAS and PI3K.
  Confined epitaxial growth of InP on silicon for advanced photonic structures
  Dr Q Li, Dr D Wallis
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the widespread use of mobile devices, the level of data traffic in the world is going up very quickly.
  A key role for FKBPL in the regulation of cancer stem cell signalling and the microenvironment; therapeutic implications for tumour growth and metastasis
  Prof T Robson, Prof D O'Connor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer stem cells (CSCs) are a special type of cell found within tumours that are able to undergo unlimited self-renewal and are highly resistant to therapy.
  Are Digital Transformations driving economic growth in Yorkshire?
  Dr R Woodhead, Dr D Mali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Context. Some industrial enterprises in Yorkshire are investing heavily in Digital Transformations, others are not. Jeff Immelt, former chairman of General Electric said “Every industrial company has to become a software and analytics company” (Immelt, 2015).
