  Joint PhD with University of Bayreuth: Light Pulse Control of Excitons
  Assoc Prof T Smith
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using timed sequences of ultrashort laser pulses, it should be possible to control the fate of an exciton. We aim to investigate multichromophoric molecules the comprise groups that absorb (and perhaps emit) in specific regions of the spectrum, that we can modulate with timed pulses of different wavelengths.
  Designing better wound dressings that mimic the body
  Dr A Hook, Dr C Merry
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to design better wound dressings that can actively promote healing within chronic wounds.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Assoc Prof M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Electric dust storms: environmental challenges and impacts
  Prof G Harrison, Dr C Ryder, Dr K.A. Nicoll
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mineral dust aerosol is a major component of the Earth-Atmosphere system, comprising 70% of the global aerosol mass burden.
  The cost of being well-defended: How leaf herbivores make flowers stink and what plants can do about it
  Dr S Campbell
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants use a diverse array of traits to repel or kill pests and pathogens. Following attack, a sophisticated hormonal signaling system regulates the production of defensive metabolites, allowing plants to fine-tune their responses to specific enemies and environments.
  Exploiting the Collective Behaviour of Catalytic Colloids to Make Optoelectronic Devices
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalytic active colloids are able to produce rapid enhanced motion but also possess unusual additional interactions. The interactions can cause colloids to organise into new arrangements that can have interesting optoelectronic properties, which may be used for new technologies.
  Light Actuated Microfluidic Devices for Medical Diagnosis
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to control the motion of colloids within microfluidic devices has significant potential for applications in healthcare diagnostics, where colloids are used to find and concentrate cells and biological molecules for analysis.
  Using Catalytically Powered Microfluidic Transport to Enable Medical Diagnosis
  Dr S Ebbens, Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microfluidic devices have the potential to enable diagnostic tests to be performed rapidly at the "point-of-care" enabling rapid responses to medical emergencies, and allowing patients to self-monitor medical conditions in their homes.
  High-speed astrophysics with HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC
  Research Group: Astronomy and Astrophysics
  Prof V Dhillon, Dr S Littlefair
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

HiPERCAM, ULTRACAM and ULTRASPEC are high-speed cameras built by Sheffield/Warwick/UKATC for the study of astrophysics on fast timescales.
  Aurora caused by energetic proton precipitation into the polar atmosphere
  Dr D Whiter, Dr R Fear, Prof B Lanchester
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The aurora is a result of energised charged particles (electrons and protons) travelling down the Earth’s magnetic field lines and colliding with the neutral atmosphere.
