  Investigating novel metabolites on the regulation of microRNAs for the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis
  Dr C McCoy, Dr L O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The study of metabolites has yielded new insights into the mechanisms that mediate immune cell function. Recent advances have highlighted that in addition to regulating energy states in a cell, metabolites can have a major impact on immune cells such as macrophages.
  Supercritical Fluid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (SFC-MS) Analysis of Agrochemicals and Formulated Products
  Prof G Langley
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. G J Langley, J M Herniman, C Howson (Syngenta). Project description. The aim of this project is to realise the full potential of SFC-MS applied to Syngenta chemistries, not just active ingredients but also formulated products.
  Obtaining a better understanding of the identity of agrichemical photoproducts
  Dr C E Dessent
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Agrichemicals are widely used to to protect crops from pests and enhance crop yields, but represent an important class of potential environmental contaminants.
  Imaging of element distribution in brain tissue
  Dr A Raab, Prof J Feldmann, Prof B Platt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trace elements are non-homogenously distributed in brain tissue, the distribution depends on the element. There is some research indicating that trace elements, in particular Fe, Cu and Zn, are associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
  Elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements in the lithosphere
  Prof S Foley, Prof O Alard
Application Deadline: 20 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project entails an analytical and experimental investigation of elemental and isotopic fractionation of chalcophile elements between minerals (sulfides and silicates) and melts and how they relate to volatile elements.
  New methods for ultra-high throughput proteomics for biomarker discovery
  Dr R Unwin, Prof A D Whetton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to reliably measure protein concentrations in blood samples is critical for the identification of disease biomarkers to allow patients’ stratification and improve patient care.
  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.
  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.

Considerable advances in the analytical capabilities of modern techniques afford a new horizon in the study of health and disease.
  Development of metabolomics for understanding AMR in mixed infections
  Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
  Saving the planet through carbon recycling: engineering bacterial capture of gasified waste for bioplastics production
  Dr K Winzer, Prof N Minton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change caused by the release of greenhouse gases from fossil fuels and through change of land use threatens life on our planet.
