  Towards broad spectrum antimicrobial vaccines: uniting automated and enzymatic glycan assembly for the synthesis and bioconjugation of the biofilm exopolysaccharide PNAG
  Dr M A Fascione, Prof G Davies
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. There is a pressing need for antibodies and vaccines of improved efficacy, and improved methods for their production.
  Understanding receptor clustering via multivalent ligand display
  Dr C Spicer, Prof P Genever
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Extracellular signalling is a vital means for cells to communicate with each other, respond to their environment, and ultimately form functioning tissues.
  ONE Planet DTP - Simulating evolving snow processes in the changing climate of High Mountain Asia (OP20276)
  Dr N Forsythe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

River flows originating in High Mountain Asia (HMA) – i.e. the Himalaya and Tibetan Plateau -- support the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people.
  Electrochemical mechanisms of coating failure
  Research Group: Metallurgy and Corrosion
  Dr N Stevens
Application Deadline: 27 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sustainable Coatings by Rational Design (SusCoRD) is a multi-disciplinary project which aims to, for the first time, connect a detailed scientific understanding of the mechanisms of coatings failure with state-of-the-art-machine learning to deliver a framework for the optimisation of protective coatings and nanocomposite materials.
  RF and mm-wave imaging using optical modulation
  Prof E Hendry, Dr N Stone
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Joint supervisors. Prof Euan Hendry, Prof Nick Stone. External partner. Prof Chris Lawrence (QinetiQ). ***. Radiation in the mm-wave band is intrinsically safe, non-ionising and non-destructive.
  Designing Supports for Artificial Photosynthetic Catalysts
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic catalysts are being developed that can convert carbon dioxide into useful chemicals. However, the catalysts’ function depends critically on attachment to solid semi-conductor surfaces.
  Light Actuated Microfluidic Devices for Medical Diagnosis
  Dr S Ebbens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to control the motion of colloids within microfluidic devices has significant potential for applications in healthcare diagnostics, where colloids are used to find and concentrate cells and biological molecules for analysis.
  Redefining Single Use Plastics: Life Cycle Analysis
  Dr RH Rothman, Prof P Styring
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is currently > 7.3 billion tons of plastic in the Earth System, rising to 40 Bt by 2050. ~10 Mt of plastics reach the oceans every year; 12 Bt are projected to be in landfill by 2050.
  High-Performance Compressed Straw Board (HPCSB): A New Generation of Building Materials
  Dr S Ghaffar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to introduce a greatly improved, lightweight variant of Compressed Straw Board (CSB) for the construction industry, strong enough to accommodate structural loads both in tension and under compression.
  Mechanisms and applications of collisions at liquid surfaces
  Prof K G McKendrick
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will study the dynamics of scattering at the gas-liquid interface. You will improve fundamental understanding of mechanisms of collisions at atmospherically relevant surfaces and explore the exploitation of this insight through new methods to probe the surfaces of technologically interesting materials.
