  Cracking down bacterial infection in bone by new photo-responsive nanoparticles
  Dr K Yeung
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-metals have been extensively used in orthopaedic implantations. However, bacterial infection and unsatisfactory integration at the bone-implant interface remain major post-operative complications.
  Recognition and sensing of ions, bioanions, and biomolecules by photo-activated metal complexes
  Prof JA Thomas
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Thomas group is investigating the host-guest chemistry of redox-active and/or photo-active, self-assembled macrocyclic structures.
  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of photosynthetic proteins in devices for solar energy conversion, biosensing, photosensing, photocatalysis, touch sensing, molecular electronics and biodegradable solar cells.
  Artificial microbial photosynthesis: development of biohybrid systems to produce solar chemicals and fuels from waste-carbon (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BLACK2)
  Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar energy is the most abundant energy source and can act as a green and sustainable energy supply. It is worth noting that one-hour sunlight can satisfy the one-year energy demand of the entire world.
  Developing and applying genetically encoded proteins as pre-resonant coherent Raman scattering tags for next-generation live-cell imaging
  Dr D Jones, Prof W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr P Watson
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC funded DTP PhD Studentship within the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Hub “Physics of Life”. The Hub is designed as a cross-disciplinary PhD research and training programme at the physics/life science interface.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Advanced holography for augmented reality head-up displays (Ceres Holographics Ltd.) - University of Dundee
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr T Vettenburg
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Design and development of paper/responsive polymer hybrid micro-device (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/XU)
  Dr B Xu, Dr Y Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Paper micro-device is a technology that is particularly well-suited for use in public health, diagnostics for resource-limited settings, veterinary medicine, testing of food and water quality, and environmental monitoring.
  Optically active molecular nanostructures
  Prof S Kowarik
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project molecular nanostructures for specific applications in biomedical sensing and optoelectronics will be studied. Therefore, atomic scale details of the molecular arrangement and the relationship between supramolecular structure and optical properties are investigated.
  Elucidating Disease Mechanisms using New Approaches to Capture Transient Protein Complexes in the Mitochondria
  Prof L-Y Lian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Its malfunction is the cause of many diseases, ranging from cancer to heart and neurological diseases, which become more prevalent with age.
  Curly, a novel IQGAP protein domain that bends actin filaments: characterisation and novel applications
  Dr D Köster, Prof M Balasubramanian
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Actin filaments are central to a large number of biological processes in all domains of life. Dirven by the interplay with molecular motors, actin binding and actin modulating proteins, the actin cytoskeleton exhibits a variety of geometries.
  A light source for quantum computing and simulation
  Dr A Bennett
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3.5 years October 2020. We seek a motivated PhD student to work on semiconductor quantum light sources. Light is an ideal carrier of quantum information as photons are fast, cheap and easy to encode with quantum-bits carried in their polarisation, phase, time or path degrees of freedom.
  Achieving Net-Zero - Hydrogen as a key factor for energy resilience and emission reduction for the UK water sector
  Prof B Jefferson, Dr L Alibardi
Application Deadline: 6 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This exciting fully-funded PhD, with an enhanced stipend of £19,000 per annum and working in collaboration with Scottish Water and Anglian Water, will research the means of developing an evidence-based strategy for the UK water sector to switch towards a hydrogen economy aligned to achieving carbon neutrality.
  Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): Photonic Sensors for Measuring Green House Gas Emissions in Dairy and Arable Production: Sustainable Precision Agriculture (University of Strathclyde and SRUC Barony Campus)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Prof C Michie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is predicted to reach 9 Billion by 2050. As a consequence, increasing competition for land resource against a backdrop of climate change agricultural practices are presenting farmers with a range of challenges to improve operational efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions.
  Time-Resolved Photoelectron Spectroscopy using Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibres
  Dr D Townsend
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in hollow-core photonic crystal fibre technology now permit widely tuneable generation of femtosecond light pulses in the ultraviolet spectral region.
  Ultrafast Transient Absorption Spectroscopy of Photosensitizers in Photodynamic Therapy
  Dr D Townsend, Dr SJ Greaves
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Femtosecond lasers with pulse durations comparable to the “ultrafast” timescales of molecular motion have become a powerful tool for studying the dynamics of energy redistribution following ultraviolet (UV) absorption in real time.
