  Artificial Intelligence and Mechanism Design for Optimal Routing of Connected Vehicles
  Research Group: Agents, Interactions & Complexity
  Dr E H Gerding
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Sebastian Stein. Co-supervisor Enrico Gerding, Paul Brookes (Siemens). Project description. Connected and autonomous vehicles have the potential to make better use of the existing road infrastructure.
  Asymmetric cell division as mechanism for generating cell diversity
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryonic development, a single fertilised egg ultimately generates every cell of an organism. To generate diverse types of cells, some cell divisions occur asymmetrically, resulting in daughter cells inheriting different proteins and organelles.
  The mechanism of gating and transport of pentameric Magnesium ion channels
  Dr S M Prince, Prof R Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnesium ions are a co-factor in many important biological processes particularly because of the requirement for Mg2+ in the hydrolysis of Adenosine tri-phosphate, the ubiquitous cellular energy source.
  Molecular mechanism of innate immunity mediated by the Toll/IL1 receptor signalling pathways.
  Prof N J Gay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This group participates in the Wellcome Trust 4 year PhD programme in Developmental biology., MRC and BBSRC Doctoral Training Programmes.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.

  In-situ reaction mechanism and material speciation determination in operational batteries
  Research Group: Energy Technologies
  Dr R Wills
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Dr Richard Wills. Co-supervisor Prof Andrew Cruden, Prof Martin-Owen Jones. Project description. Aluminum-ion (Al-ion) batteries, offer lower cost more abundant electrode materials, higher thermal stability and higher theoretical energy density than lithium-ion batteries.
  Comparing romantic jealousy and friendship rivalry
  Dr A Schuetzwohl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The main project aim is to test whether the same or different psychological mechanisms are defending against threats to romantic relationships and friendships emanating from a rival or competitor using a variety of methods.
  Performance Evaluation and Failure Analysis of Preventive Corrosion/Erosion Coatings Used in Power Plant and Refinery
  Dr D Daniel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels are currently the major energy source with approximately 80% of total energy consumption of the world. Renewable energy including traditional biomass contributes to about 14%.
  Robot design and construction of jumping-take off unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or drones) for use in precision agriculture
  Dr E Frasnelli
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to address two research challenges. (1) an engineering challenge, with respect to design of energy-efficient biologically-inspired flying robots; and (2) an application challenge, with respect to high-precision sensing for agricultural settings.
  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  Investigating the mechanism of action of dual antiangiogenic/ antineoplastic drugs using organotypic co-culture of fibroblasts and endothelial cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr J Elies Gomez, Dr K Pors
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An important feature of many types of cancer is the ability to develop abnormal angiogenesis (blood vessel formation); this allows cancer cells to gain access to nutrients and favours metastasis.
  TRPM2 channel mechanism of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr I Wood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and also a major cause of morbidity and mortality. Currently, there is no effective therapeutics to treat or slow the disease progress.
  Oncogenic reprogramming of immune cells, a novel mechanism of drug-resistance.
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
  Structural mechanism of signal-dependent gene transcription
  Prof D Panne, Dr A Revyakin
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Start date. September 2020. The control of gene transcription is the main regulatory step for cellular gene regulation.
