  Computer-aided molecular design: improved ligand docking using electronic structure and molecular dynamics simulations
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr N Burton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In structure-based drug design, computational modelling techniques are frequently used to predict the orientation and affinity with which a ligand binds to its protein receptor.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
  Developing a multiscale description of complex fluids from the molecular to the continuum scales
  Dr L Lue, Dr D Kivotides
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engineers have traditionally used continuum equations to model processes, such as the Navier-Stokes equation for fluid flow. These methods require constitutive relations that encode the properties of the fluid; these are typically determined empirically and have limited predictive capabilities.
  Computational modelling of protein dynamics in heart disease
  Dr A Fornili
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from self-funded candidates interested in completing a PhD starting in October 2019 in the group of Dr Arianna Fornili (https://afornililab.wordpress.com) in the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary University of London.
  Rational design of selective modulators of skeletal myosin
  Dr A Fornili, Dr J Ochala
Application Deadline: 14 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD studentship funded by Muscular Dystrophy UK (MDUK) starting January 2020 in Dr. Arianna Fornili’s group at Queen Mary University of London and Dr.
  Molecular interactions in solution for multi-component crystallisation
  Dr K Edkins, Dr J Holbrey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crystallisation is probably one of the most important unit operations in pharmaceutical industry for purification, as well as the generation of materials appropriate for formulation and application to the patient.
  Thermally superconducting and superinsulating nanofluids and their use in nanodevices
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr J Derksen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanotechnology is the forefront of a new industrial revolution. As the scale of new devices shrink, the design bottle-neck becomes getting rid of waste heat.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Atomic/Molecular insights into the formation of valuable products from waste biomass
  Dr X Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lignocellulosic biomass is a green alternative fossil resource to produce fuels (e.g. transport fuel, aviation fuel) and value-added products (e.g.
  Computer Simulation of Crystallization
  Prof J Gale
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD forms part of a major research project to understand and develop predictive models for crystallization processes relevant to both fundamental and applied fields of research from biomineralization through to industrial scale-inhibition.
