Identifying the cause of meningoencephalitis of unknown origin (MUO) in dogs to improve clinical management

Dogs naturally present with diseases of the brain and spinal cord such as meningo-encephalitis of unknown origin (MUO), in which severe inflammation occurs that shares many similarities with some human conditions such as multiple sclerosis or neuro-sarcoidosis. Read more

Navigation in Darkness Using Vision in Unknown Environments

The Robotics for Extreme Environments Group invites applications for a PhD studentship to develop vision-based simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) for usage in low-light and obstacle rich environments. Read more

Investigating novel Arabidopsis recombination mutants

Meiosis is a specialised cell division during sexual reproduction that is essential for fertility. It reduces chromosome numbers by half, so that haploid gametes are restored to normal ploidy levels upon fertilisation. Read more

Autonomous multi robot system for fast and long traversal PhD

This is an exciting opportunity for a fully funded PhD studentship in the Centre for Autonomous and Cyber-Physical Systems at Cranfield University, to develop an autonomous multi-robot system for fast and long traversal in extreme planetary environments. Read more

Natural products in bacterial physiology and chemical interaction

Microbial natural products have diverse chemical structures and bioactivities, which range from cell-cell signalling, nutrient acquisition, antifungal and antibacterial activity to stress resistance (1). Read more

BBSRC NLD Doctoral Training Partnership: How to resolve the big break-up: understanding the role of novel DNA damage repair mechanisms in Gram-positive bacteria

By 2050, bacterial pathogens will be the foremost threat to human health due to the rise in antimicrobial resistance. For instance, Staphylococcus aureus is the leading Gram-positive bacterium causing death from bacterial infections worldwide and was accounted for killing around one million people in 2019. Read more

How do complex fault geometries influence earthquake cycle deformation?

This exciting project aims to understand how complicated fault geometries influence earthquake nucleation and recurrence. You will combine field work, lab analyses, and seismology to investigate fault slip patterns on multiple scales in time and space. Read more

NERC E4 Ecophysiology and biochemistry of starch metabolism in fungal members of the rumen microbiome

  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
Sustainable ruminant farming is required to ensure global food security while mitigating environmental impacts. Ruminant performance, including greenhouse-gas emission, is critically impacted by activity of the microbiome. Read more

Sub-cellular localisation and functional effects of micro/nanoplastics on aquaculture fish with coherent Raman microscopy

Project description. Plastic pollution is a major challenge threatening the future sustainability of fish aquaculture. Petrochemical plastics are a modern commodity, deliberately designed to be resistant to degradation. Read more

ACCE DTP Studentship - Impacts of plant and pest identities on the functionality of mycorrhizal networks

The ACCE DTP is committed to recruiting extraordinary future scientists regardless of age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, faith or religious belief, pregnancy or maternity, parental or caring responsibilities or career pathway to date. Read more

Nonlinear systems of PDE and vectorial Calculus of Variations in L∞ (L-infinity)

The calculus of variations is, roughly speaking, the mathematical theory of how to minimise or maximise magnitudes. Variational problems from science typically require minimisation of an average magnitude over a space-time region depending on unknown quantities. Read more
