  Localised antibiotic delivery and release with luminescent mesoporous silica nanoparticles
  Prof Z Pikramenou, Dr J Blair
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Bacterial infections are becoming harder to treat as antibiotic resistance becomes increasingly prevalent. There is also a lack of drugs in the pipeline to take the place of those that can no longer be used due to resistance and novel therapeutic options are needed.
  Development of novel fibre-based thermometers for harsh environments
  Dr F Poletti
Applications accepted all year round
Supervisor. Prof Francesco Poletti. Co-supervisor. Dr Eric Numkam Fokoua, Dr Joris Lousteau. When immersed in a harsh environment, i.e in ionizing radiation, silica glass, one of the most transparent materials known to date, quickly becomes opaque.
  Computational design of hierarchical porous materials
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round
Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  (BBSRC DTP) Understanding and Harnessing Enzymes for Organosilicon Chemistry
  Dr L Wong, Dr S De Visser, Dr P Quayle
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
As a project that traverses the boundaries of the physical and life sciences, the student will learn skills in a. wide range of areas.
  Diatoms for the efficient trapping of solar energy
  Dr K Ryan, Dr Gerald Smith
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
A PhD scholarship in biological nanostructures is offered for experimental research into marine diatoms, and in particular to study their outer cell wall that functions as an efficient trap for solar energy.
  Atmospheric pressure plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition of functional thin films.
  Dr D Sawtell, Dr Z Abd-Allah
Applications accepted all year round
Reference Number. EMR-DS-2017-1-PhD. Project Summary. Atmospheric pressure plasma enhanced chemical vapour deposition, AP-PECVD, has great potential as an inexpensive method of producing functional thin films over large surface areas.
  Sediment flux in and around the Sør Rondans Mountains in East Antarctica (RDF19/EE/GES/WINTER)
  Dr K Winter
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Sediments in glacial systems can alter frictional stress at the glacier bed, modify ice flow speeds and change ice flow direction through long-term erosive processes.
  BAOU18CPRT Anti-cancer activities of dietary isothiocyanates
  Dr Y Bao
Application Deadline: 20 September 2019
Sulforaphane (SFN) is an isothiocyanate (ITC) derived from glucosinolate (glucoraphanin) under the action of myrosinase when the plant tissue is damaged or chewed.
  Thermodynamic modelling of alkali-activated materials
  Dr R Myers
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
The Industrial Ecology Team at the University of Edinburgh is seeking an outstanding PhD candidate to apply thermodynamic modelling to alkali-activated materials.
