A fully funded PhD studentship is available to work under the co-supervision of Dr Giorgio Volpe and Dr Matthew Blunt on the experimental development of a controllable printing method to deposit and self-assemble 2 dimensional Covalent Organic Frameworks (2D-COFs).
Erosion and flooding represent significant threats to our coastlines. In recent years, much progress has been made in understanding the role of natural habitats in providing coastal protection both in isolation and, in combination with, engineered sea defence structures.
Wearable technology and data science are active and important areas of research. In particular, there is growing interest in the use of wearables for positive outcomes in health and well-being applications.
The molecular function of circadian clock genes are well understood and conserved from flies to mammals, but the implications of natural variation in clock gene sequences are only recently becoming evident.
