  Lead isotope ratio measurements in microcosms and avian samples as indicators for the source of lead poisoning in wildfowl
  Dr J Barker, Dr S Barton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead (Pb) poisoning is commonly linked amongst anthropogenically-caused deaths in waterfowl and this is often associated with hunting and fishing activities.
  Unraveling Metabolic Pathways of Deuterium-Depleted Water (DDW) in Australian Wines using Chemical Fingerprint - Stable Isotope Tracer and Modelling
  Prof Y Ren
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygen and hydrogen isotope fingerprints, derived from local-regional rainfall, can be used to identify the geographical origin of wine.
  Cave exploration: shedding light on organic sulfur cycling in a terrestrial underground chemosynthetic system
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr H Schaefer, Dr Y Chen, Dr D Kumaresan
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Investigate the organic sulfur cycle of a closed cave ecosystem based on chemosynthesis. Apply stable isotope and metagenomics approaches to characterise uncultivated bacteria.
  From Big Bang nucleosynthesis to medical science: advanced electronic signal analysis for extreme-light experiments in nuclear science.
  Research Group: Nuclear Physics
  Dr C Diget, Dr C Matei
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Extreme-Light Infrastructure - Nuclear Physics (ELI-NP) is currently under construction in Bucharest, Romania.
  Low temperature steam reforming of methane for hydrogen production
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr A McCue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Hydrogen, a primary raw material of the chemical industry, presents significant potential as an energy carrier that can drive the implementation of highly efficient energy systems at a reduced environmental impact.
  Dinoflagellate cysts and palaeoenvironmental change during Cretaceous oceanic anoxic events: a study of OAE1a
  Prof I Jarvis, Prof G Gillmore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will study Cretaceous dinoflagellate cysts. It seeks to understand relationships between dinocysts, a proxy for marine nutrient availability and organic zooplankton fertility, and episodes of black shale (petroleum source rock) deposition during Oceanic Anoxic Events (OAEs) in the mid-Cretaceous.
  Fueling chemotherapy resistance in triple-negative breast cancer
  Dr K Brown
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a molecularly heterogeneous group of diseases defined by the lack of estrogen receptor (ER), progesterone receptor (PR) and absence of human epidermal growth factor receptor-2 (HER2) amplification.
  Molecular Transport through Angstrom scale confinement
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Housed within the world-leading condensed matter physics group and National Graphene Institute, our group focuses on 2D materials and angstrom scale capillaries.
  A combined magnetic resonance (NMR and EPR) approach to identifying and characterising ligand interactions. (MACMILLANF1U20SF)
  Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We use advanced magnetic resonance approaches to identify and characterise weak molecular interactions. The aim of this project is to combine both Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopic techniques to study such interactions.
  Human liver fat metabolism and metabolic disease: Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  Prof L Hodson, Dr K Pinnick, Dr S Parry
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the underlying causes and mechanistic basis for intrahepatic fat storage to identify ways of preventing and treating fatty liver disease.
  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 plant soil interactions
  Prof T J Daniell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern agriculture relies on high inputs of reactive nitrogen fertiliser produced by the Haber-Bosch process.
  PhD in Plants and Microbes: crop production and protection, the interaction between plants and other plants, pests and pathogens, and soils, and the interactions of ecosystems with global change
  Dr C Voigt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants underpin life on Earth. In Sheffield, world leading plant research is undertaken across all scales from the molecular level through to the leaf and root, whole plant and ecosystem.
  Structural and functional significance of Mucoromycotina ‘fine root endophyte’ fungal associates of vascular land plants
  Prof K Field, Prof T J Daniell
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The colonisation of the landmasses by plants >500 Mya was a major turning point in Earth’s history, drastically altering the development of the biosphere and providing the basis for all terrestrial life ever since.
