  Tiny fractals in the sea: the biogeochemistry of particle shape
  Dr P Lam
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Particles* are a critical aspect of life and chemistry in the ocean. Marine particles are hotspots of biological activity, and their sinking mediates a major vertical transport of mass and energy that connects the sunlit and dark ocean ecosystems and fundamentally influ-ences global biogeochemistry.
  Improving our understanding of ice cloud microphysics using new aircraft and multi-wavelength radar measurements
  Dr C Westbrook, Dr T Stein, Dr S Mason
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ice particles in clouds play an important role for both weather and climate prediction. Half of all precipitation globally is initiated through the formation of ice, while the radiative impact of ice clouds is very important because of their widespread coverage.
  Development of nature-inspired polyester particles for cancer vaccines
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in synthetic biology allows recombinant bacteria to produce protein coated polyester particles. These polyester particles have been utilized as particulate vaccines against bacterial and viral infections.
  Machine Learning with Active Particles
  Prof F Cichos
Application Deadline: 14 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position is available to work under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Frank Cichos on machine learning of active particles. Active particles are model systems for biological systems like bacteria.
  Development of pulmonary dosage forms for improved antibacterial activity
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
  CYGNUS - Global Search for Dark Matter Particles with Directionality
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof N Spooner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sheffield is a key player in the world-leading dark matter experiment CYGNUS that is seeking a unique directional signal for Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs), the favoured candidate to explain the missing dark matter of the Universe.
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  NERC GW4+ DTP studentship: Understanding the fate and potential impact of nano-plastics in freshwater organisms and ecosystems
  Prof I Durance, Prof P Borri
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a growing realisation that the widespread use and degradation of plastics has created a legacy of plastic pollution. Mass balance studies have suggested that a large proportion of release plastics waste may now be present as micro- nano-scale particles.
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
