  Mathematical modelling of the global oxygen production by marine phytoplankton in response to global warming
  Prof S Petrovskii, Dr A Morozov
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Ocean dynamics is known to have a strong effect on the global climate change and on the composition of the atmosphere. In particular, it is estimated that about 70% of the atmospheric oxygen is produced in the oceans due to the photosynthetic activity of phytoplankton.
  Novel interactions of anaesthetics on oxygen sensitive TASK K+ channels derived from rat chemoreceptor cells
  Prof K Buckler, Prof J Pandit
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Fully funded 3-year National Institute of Academic Anaesthesia (NIAA) PhD studentship to investigate the novel interactions of anaesthetics on oxygen sensitive TASK K+ channels derived from rat chemoreceptor cells (carotid body).
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round
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/).
  Hyperthermal Atomic Oxygen Effects on Satellite Systems
  Research Group: Aerospace Engineering
  Dr P Roberts, Dr V Oiko, Dr S Edmondson
Applications accepted all year round
A funded PhD studentship is currently available, developing robust satellite technology to deal with the challenges of erosion and oxidation in Low Earth Orbits.
  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
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
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
The Tiganis Laboratory is seeking a highly enthusiastic student to conduct research in cancer metabolism and obesity-associated liver cancer.
  AMPK deficiency and respiratory disease
  Prof A M Evans
Applications accepted all year round
Regulation of breathing is critical to our capacity to accommodate deficits in oxygen availability and demand during, for example, sleep and ascent to altitude.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mass-spectrometry analysis and live cell/zebrafish imaging to discover the function of novel post-translational modifications occurring in hypoxia signalling
  Dr V See, Prof C Eyers, Dr P Elks, Prof S Rocha
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
To survive, multicellular organism need to sense and respond to changes in oxygen level. Episodes of low oxygen (hypoxia) occur during many physiological processes and also in pathological circumstances such as stroke, ageing and cancer.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) High Pressure Biocatalysis: generating generic and scalable approaches to biocatalysis using engineered enzymes
  Dr S Hay, Prof A Munro
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Oxidation reactions play a key role in the bulk chemical industry and enzyme-mediated biocatalysis offers an alternative to the use of traditional catalysts, which can suffer from poor chemical selectivity and require the use of harsh reaction conditions and produce hazardous waste products.
