  Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease.
  Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.
  Investigating the role of the protease ADAMTS5 in ovarian cancer
  Dr E Rainero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovarian cancer is the most lethal gynaecological malignancy. Mostly because of late stage diagnosis, the 5-year survival rate is.
  Live imaging of neural circuits mediating pain
  Dr A Nikolaev, Dr E Seward
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to characterize the neuronal circuitry involved in pain signaling in genetically modified zebrafish expressing fluorescent reporters of activity.
  Novel therapeutic approaches for the treatment of Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
  Prof S Winder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is caused by mutations in the DMD gene leading to loss of the cytoskeletal protein dystrophin.
  Regulation of SNARE complex assembly and function by the lysine deacetylase Sirtuin-2
  Dr M Collins, Dr A Peden
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sirtuin-2 (Sirt2) is a lysine deacetylase that regulates acetylation levels of cytoplasmic proteins and has established roles in neurodegeneration, cancer and infection.
  Regulation of synaptic protein function by protein palmitoylation
  Dr M Collins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Palmitoylation (S-acylation), the only known reversible lipid modification of proteins, is an important regulator of protein localisation and function.
  Investigating mechanism, reactivity and catalysis in organic, supramolecular and biological chemistry
  Prof NH Williams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in designing and synthesising organic molecules to investigate the basis of catalysis, and to apply these principles to designing our own, artificial catalysts.

  Palaeoglaciology of Eurasian ice sheets
  Dr J Ely, Dr Ch Clark
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The future of our current ice-sheets, in Antarctica and Greenland, is uncertain. To make better predictions of how much these ice-masses will contribute to future sea-level rise, we need to improve numerical models of how ice-sheets work.
  Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life-threatening invasive fungal infection is a major health problem in the immunocompromised, and emerging drug resistance is a major threat to global health.
  Sharpening the blunted neutrophil response to antimicrobial resistant fungal infection
  Dr P Elks, Prof A Condliffe, Dr S Johnston
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project for inclusion in China Scholarship Council – University of Sheffield competition. More information is available at https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/postgraduate/phd/scholarships/csc.
  The role of endothelial kugeln in human neurological diseases
  Prof T Chico
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We recently discovered a new behaviour of the brain blood vessels. These develop transient spherical protrusions that have never been observed on any cell type before.
  Development of new innovative materials and processing routes
  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training
  Dr M Jackson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Machinability of Ni-based super alloys is a constantly evolving topic, driven by the development of improved alloys for the aerospace industry.
  Nuclear Waste Glass Durability as a Function of Groundwater Composition
  Research Group: Immobilisation Science Laboratory
  Dr C L Corkhill
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking an enthusiastic, motivated individual who wishes to learn about radioactive waste management in the UK with a desire to help influence Government policy on nuclear waste disposal.
  Understanding the interaction between silver and lead-free solders in order to develop new alloys
  Research Group: Advanced Metallic Systems Centre for Doctoral Training
  Dr R Goodall
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The printing of electrically conductive tracks on glass is an important technology in areas such as the automotive industry, where silver pastes are used to create the tracks for heated windscreens.
