  Evaluation of the capabilities of 2-dimensional mass spectrometry in a variety of molecular systems
  Prof P O'Connor
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an industrially funded PhD project in collaboration with Verdel Instruments, Ltd., a spinout company from the University of Warwick.
  Proteomic and mass spectrometric analysis of disease progression in Acute Myeloid Leukaemia
  Prof A D Whetton, Dr Andrew Pierce
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acute myeloid leukaemia is a disease where unfortunately outcomes have improved little in the recent past and new approaches are required in treatment of the disease.
  Transforming data to understanding and knowledge for the sequencing of therapeutic oligonucleotides by mass spectrometry
  Prof G Langley
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. G J Langley, Dr E Stulz, Dr A Ray (AstraZeneca), Dr S Holman (AstraZeneca). Project description. Oligonucleotides are a promising and growing class of therapeutics.
  Strategies to retard the decline in skeletal muscle mass and function in older age (Ref: SF20/SER/SAXTON)
  Prof J Saxton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle mass and function decline progressively in older age. Evidence suggests that maintenance of a healthy body composition, including skeletal muscle mass, is an important factor influencing metabolic health and functional independence in older people.
  Probing organic composition of the atmosphere with Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry
  Research Group: Atmospheric Science
  Prof H Coe, Dr J Allan, Prof G McFiggans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are a huge number of organic compounds present in the atmosphere. They are emitted from a wide range of sources that are both natural and man-made.
  Decoding the Language of Nature: It is time for Artificial Intelligence to predict the function of natural products based on structure
  Prof R Quinn, Dr M Liu, Dr CW Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The profound and specific biological activity of natural products coupled with their immediately recognizable structures suggests a code within these structures that we are not as yet aware of.
  Flocking dynamics in birds : the role of personality and experience
  Dr S Portugal
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many birds travel in flocks comprising many individuals. During flights, decisions have to be made about who leads and follows, and who is positioned where in the flock.
  Linear Poisson Modelling Independent Component Analysis of DESI Mass Spectral Tissue Images
  Dr A McMahon, Dr N Thacker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Desorption Electrospray Ionisation - Mass Spectrometry Imaging (DESI – IMS) allows mass spectra to be acquired from an. array of.
  Conformational dynamics and protein folding/misfolding of alpha1-antitrypsin studied by state-of-the-art tandem ion mobility mass spectrometry
  Prof K Thalassinos, Prof D Lomas
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein A1AT is the most abundant circulating protease inhibitor. It is synthesised in the hepatocyte ER and its key target is the enzyme neutrophil elastase.
  Understanding non-genetic inheritance in Daphnia magna with Raman spectroscopic imaging and mass spectrometry-based metabolomics
  Dr H Muhamad Ali, Dr S J Plaistow, Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inheritance is an integral part of the evolutionary process. We all know that offspring inherit genes from their parents. But it is now increasingly recognised that parents also transmit ’non-genetic’ factors that interact with genes to shape offspring development.
  Investigating the links between osteoporosis & Alzheimer’s disease – effects of β-amyloid upon the mechanical set-point in bone
  Dr S McArthur, Dr SCF Rawlinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Individuals with Alzheimer’s disease are more likely to suffer from osteoporosis (the loss of bone mass and strength) than age-matched individuals; significantly contributing to the frailty associated with dementia.
  Programming and Real-Time Monitoring Light Degradability of Polymers
  Dr H Frisch, Dr B Poad
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic polymers are arguably the class of man-made materials that have most shaped the last century. However, the majority of polymers results from radical polymerization techniques yielding all carbon backbones, which critically prevent their degradation and pose a vital threat to the future of our planet.
  Investigating the role of N-type glycosylation in protein-ligand interactions using a unique commercial microarray technology
  Dr J Pandhal, Prof MJ Dickman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years microarray technology has been instrumental in expanding knowledge of the interactions between proteins and both synthetic and natural ligands, contributing to substantial advances in the global biopharmaceutical industry.
  Mass spectrometry analysis of human tissue to characterise cleavage events resulting in amyloid deposition associated with aortic aneurysm and dissection
  Dr J Madine, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most common form of localised amyloid occurs in the aorta (aortic medial amyloid; AMA) and is estimated to occur in 97% of Caucasian people over 50.
  Search for Doubly Charged Higgs Bosons Decaying to Like-Sign Pairs of Tau Leptons with the ATLAS Experiment at the CERN LHC
  Dr T Wyatt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of the Higgs boson by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at the CERN LHC in 2012 represents the culmination of a 50-year theoretical and experimental endeavour to complete the “Standard Model” of particle physics.
