  Natural toxins and their synthetic analogues as tools to study ion channels and as potential drugs and pesticides
  Dr I R Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will use a combination of electrophysiological techniques such as voltage-clamp and patch-clamp with molecular biology and protein expression to understand how natural toxins and their synthetic analogues act on ion channels in the nervous system.
  Raindrops, pesticides, and oil spills – droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces
  Dr P D Hicks, Dr Y Tanino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Droplet interactions with porous and textured surfaces play a crucial role in many important physical processes including the spraying of plant leaves with…
  Developing a sustainable management system for the diamondback moth, a globally important crop pest
  Dr D Chandler, Dr G Teakle
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The diamondback moth (DBM) Plutella xylostella is a brassica-feeding specialist and one of the most important pests worldwide, causing US$5 billion crop losses globally p.a.
  Photoelectron Circular Dichroism as a Chiral Probe
  Dr D Townsend
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project will investigate photoelectron circular dichroism (PECD) in chiral molecules (i.e. molecules exhibiting distinct left- and right-handed forms that are non-superimposable mirror images).
  Radionuclides in soils in urban regions.
  Prof G Gillmore, Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD concerns the collection, analysis and health impact assessment of soil geochemical data in order to.
  Water pollution control using polymer-inorganic complexes
  Dr F Clegg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Water pollution arises via several different sources, including municipal, industrial (in particular petroleum) and agricultural activities.
  Supramolecular sensors for the detection and removal of environmental pollutants
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of selective supramolecular sensors that undergo a macroscopic, detectable response upon binding a particular substrate is an intense area of interest.
  Biochemical interactions of the gut microbiome with environmental pollutants
  Dr K Patil
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit is an internationally renowned institution focused on the delivery of field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease.
  Conservation of pollinator biodiversity and sustainable management of pollination services in agroecosystems
  Prof S G Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wild and managed pollinators provide a wide range of benefits to society in terms of contributions to food security, farmer and beekeeper livelihoods, social and cultural values, as well as the maintenance of wider biodiversity and ecosystem stability.
  Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To achieve food security, we can improve the efficiency of food production while reducing the use and cost of pesticides. To tackle both challenges, efficiency and cost, we propose to select crop varieties that are more resilient against pests and diseases.
  Novel, essential genes in lineages of pest insect species
  Dr K Panfilio, Dr D Hebenstreit
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive insect pest species are a growing problem that severely impacts agriculture and crop plants. The UK Plant Health Risk Register currently recognizes over 1000 specific pests, with beetles (Coleoptera) and bugs (Hemiptera) among those recognized as high profile pests and those with rapidly changing statuses.
