  Unlocking clinopyroxene records of magma and mantle oxygen fugacity
  Research Group: Geoscience
  Dr D Neave, Dr M Hartley, Dr R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Subduction recycles oceanic lithosphere formed at mid-ocean ridges back into the Earth’s convecting mantle, creating much of the deep compositional heterogeneity we now see reflected in the diversity of magmas erupted at mid-ocean ridges and ocean islands.
  Platelets and hypoxia: how do varying oxygen concentrations affect platelet function and signalling?
  Dr M Arman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Platelets have key functions in regulating haemostasis and maintaining vascular integrity, which can cause cardiovascular disease if unbalanced.
  Molecular insights into a novel mammalian oxygen-sensing pathway (Ph.D in Biochemistry/Chemical Biology)
  Dr M White, Prof R Payne, Prof J Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Outstanding candidates with their own funding and a background in biochemistry, molecular biology, organic chemistry or similar are invited to apply for…
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  Development of a novel therapeutic for the treatment of sickle cell anaemia
  Dr M Brennan, Prof M Devocelle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sickle cell anaemia is a chronic condition that is expensive to treat and requires significant clinical intervention and management.
  Artificial blood
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by Nature, we have developed a number of macromolecules that can bind a release oxygen. These have included polyfluorinated micelles, polyion complexes and porphyrin cored polymers.
  Assessing the hemodynamic signal sources of fMRI based spontaneous connectivity maps and how neuronal plasticity such as increased spatial working memory can change these networks
  Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many psychiatric (e.g. schizophrenia) and neurological diseases are characterised by a disturbance of the connections between different parts of the brain that need to communicate with one another.
  The neurophysiological basis of spontaneous fluctuations in neuroimaging signals
  Dr M Jones, Dr J Berwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A technique called blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) can determine levels of different activity in parts of the living human brain and how malfunctions can occur in disease.
  Metabolic Reprogramming in Liver Cancer: delineating the role of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in tumour development
  Prof T. Tiganis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  Nanodroplet emulsions for oxygen delivery in bone repair
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Dr N Evans
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Nicholas D Evans, Dario Carugo, Janos Kanczler Co-supervisor. Project description. Applications are invited for a PhD student to join the research groups of Dr Evans and Dr Carugo to develop novel methods of delivering bioactive gas using ultrasound-responsive nanodroplets to promote bone fracture healing.
  Synthesise of new macromolecules for application in photodynamic therapy.
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an effective and licensed treatment for a number of conditions, including various cancers and certain skin and eye conditions.
  Microbial biogeochemistry in agricultural landscapes: An investigation of reactive nitrogen oxide fluxes from soil
  Dr R Mushinski, Prof G Bending
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A range of pollutant gases, and especially nitrogen (N) compounds (N2O, NO, NO2, etc.) are emitted to the atmosphere from agricultural activities.1 These gases are extremely important for a myriad of reason including their contribution to climate change, urban air pollution, and N-deposition.
  Therapeutic effects of low-level (infra-red) light on muscle function in health and disease (Ref:SF20/SER/WILKINSON)
  Dr M Wilkinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many disease states are characterised by low exercise tolerance and low daily activity levels, secondary to central and/or peripheral oxygen transport and utilization limitations.
  Nano-hydrogel bandage for non-invasive Raman monitoring of chronic wound healing (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Assoc Prof I Blakey
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wounds (CW), wounds that persist more than 3 months, have been referred to as a major and snowballing public health burden which adversely affects the quality of life.
  What happens within? Organellular interactions during plant disease and defence
  Prof M Grant, Prof L Frigerio
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop losses due to biotic stress contribute disproportionately to yield losses, generally accounting for ~25% of the crop. Thus, developing novel approaches to restricting pathogen infections of crops and consequently yields must be a key futurey objective.
