  Investigating Transport System Risks due to Cyber-Physical Security Threats
  Prof S Shaikh, Dr H Nga Nyguen
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coventry University (CU) is inviting applications from suitably-qualified graduates for a fully-funded PhD studentship. The successful candidate will be joining the project ‘Investigating Transport System Risks due to Cyber-Physical Security Threats’ in the Systems Security Group at Coventry.
  Pore-scale modelling of drug transport in brain tumour tissue
  Dr W Zhan, Prof D Pokrajac, Dr Y Zhou
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Malignant glioma is characterised as aggressive and invasive in clinic owing to its high mortality rate.
  Kinesin-mediated transport of Marek’s disease virus
  Prof A Straube, Prof V Nair, Dr M Fife
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Marek's disease is a fatal, highly contagious, neoplastic disease affecting chickens. It is caused by an alphaherpesvirus called Gallid herpesvirus-2 or Marek's Disease Virus (MDV).
  The transport of alien particles under waves
  Prof T O'Donoghue, Dr D Van der A
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While substantial fundamental research has been conducted in recent decades on sediment transport under waves (including research at the University of Aberdeen), little is known about the behaviour of alien particles dispersed within a sand bed mobilised by waves.
  Understanding and supporting personal security during walking journeys
  Dr M Beecroft, Dr C Cottrill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

As well as being a travel mode in its own right, walking plays a critical function as a stage/multiple stages in almost any journey whether undertaken by public or private transport.
  Simulations of charge transport in organic polymer semiconductors
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Prof Alison Walker in the Department of Physics.
  Impact and Evaluation of Future Transport Zones (FTZs)
  Dr M Frost
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reference number. ABCE20/FTZ. Start date of studentship. 1 October 2020. Closing date of advert. 31 May 2020. Interview date. tbc.
  Simulation of quantum transport with cold atoms
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum mechanics is believed to play a role in certain natural processes such as light harvesting. For example certain bacteria are capable of capturing the energy of an incoming photon and transporting the resulting excitation to the reaction centre with great efficiency.
  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  Phytopharmacology of Polar Auxin Transport
  Prof Richard Napier, Dr A Cameron, Dr M Wall
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polar transport of hormones lays down patterning in plants. Polar auxin transport is mediated by PIN proteins which are plasma membrane-bound transporters.
  Unlocking the potential of 5G through cross-layer optimisation
  Dr R Secchi, Prof G Fairhurst
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aberdeen University has a track record of successful development of Internet technologies, and the successful PhD candidate will join the Internet Engineering research activities to develop a focus on Internet TV video transport [1],[2].
  Mapping the circadian clock-dependent regulation of the secretory pathway
  Prof K E Kadler, Dr Q-J Meng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The protein secretory pathway in cells comprises a series of membranous compartments and transport vesicles that the cell uses to synthesise, post-translationally modify, and move proteins for delivery to the plasma membrane or for secretion to the extracellular matrix.
  Mathematical modelling of wounding response in plants (BLYTHMU20SF)
  Dr M Blyth
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

When a plant is wounded, for example by cutting, a signal is sent out from the wound site to other parts of the plant. However, the mechanism by which this signal is transported is not well understood.
  How do organelles use short tracks to make long trips in cells
  Dr A Hume
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cells of our body contain internal structures (organelles) that perform essential functions e.g. energy production. Organelle transport is vital for function and the viability of cells and the whole body.
  Modelling traffic disruptions using machine learning and simulation modelling
  Dr S Mihaita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Topic. Traffic incidents are among the primary concerns of all transport authorities around the world due to their significant impact in terms of traffic congestion and delay, air and noise pollution, and management cost.
