  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  The relationship between dietary iron and zinc, and the gut microbiota: Can dietary iron and zinc regime be exploited to improve health?
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The gut microbiota (100 trillion cells) outnumber human cells by 10 to 1. Its composition of around 500 to 1000 species is specific for each individual and is dynamic, changing with age, health and diet.
  Iron and Immunity: studying how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases
  Prof A Drakesmith, Dr S Draper
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We study how iron and anaemia influence immunity and infectious diseases. Our research inspires therapies that control iron physiology to improve immunity, combat infections and treat disorders of iron metabolism.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in The Control of Corrosion in Cast Iron Trunk Main
  Dr M Mulheron, Dr D Jesson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extensive research has been undertaken to determine the mechanisms of corrosion in cast iron, and the factors that affect corrosion rate.
  Minimal Peptide Scaffolds for Modelling and Catalysis
  Dr N Mitchell, Dr A Croft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron-sulfur clusters are ubiquitous cofactors in nature; present in a variety of metalloproteins, these clusters mediate a broad variety of essential biological processes, including electron transfer, reaction catalysis (hydrogenase, nitrogenase, etc.), oxygen-sensing and the regulation of gene expression.
  The road to personalised anticancer therapy : utilising the LAT-1 transporter as a selective means for iron deprivation (ref: SF18/APP/Veuger)
  Dr S Veuger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent statistics show that 1:2 people in the UK will develop cancer during their life. Of particular interest are new therapeutics that potentially allow a specific focus on tumours that are aggressive, metastatic and associated with poor prognosis.
  Self-reducing Arc Furnace Feedstock offering environmental, cost and quality advantages
  Dr D Hughes
Application Deadline: 2 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD Fully-Funded Studentship. School of Science, Engineering and Design. Teesside University and Binding Solutions Ltd. This PhD studentship opportunity is offered through the Intensive Industrial Innovation Programme (IIIP).
  Iron-Catayzed Cross-Coupling
  Dr G Pritchard
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbon-Carbon bond formation is fundamental to synthetic organic chemistry. The project will look at make sp3-Sp1 carbon-carbon bonds using Fe as a metal catalyst.
  Iron Oxidation at the atomic scale: an In-situ environmental TEM/STEM study
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr L Lari, Dr V Lazarov
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fe and Fe-oxide (FeOx) based nanoparticles (NPs) have shown promising applications in physical and medical sciences. These include magnetic storage devices, catalysis, contrast enhancement in magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic hyperthermia.
  Ground (soil) modification caused by degrading (corroding) buried metallic utilities (pipes)
  Prof D N Chapman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Iron (cast iron, ductile iron and steel) and other metallic products have historically been used frequently to make pipes for distribution of water and petroleum products globally, often buried in the ground which is chemically reactive and likely to induce degradation of the pipe / pipeline with time.
  Contributing to the circular economy: biological coagulant recovery in water and wastewater treatment PhD
  Dr G Dotro, Prof B Jefferson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sponsored by EPSRC, Cranfield University, Severn Trent Water, Thames Water, United Utilities and Scottish Water, this studentship will provide a bursary of up to £18,500 (tax free) plus fees* for three years.

  Studentship Opportunity in Deterioration relationships for a variety of water main materials
  Dr D Jesson, Dr M Mulheron
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

For something that we drink every day, water is a surprising problem for the materials scientist. there are no materials suitable for large scale water distribution networks that remain unaffected by their contents over time.
  Investigating the biomedical implication of microplastic accumulation on human epithelial barriers and associated effects on immune function, fibrosis and premature tissue ageing
