"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
  (A*STAR) RNA-based sensors of host-imposed stress in the major fungal pathogen of human lungs: Potential as drug targets
  Prof E Bignell, Prof J Micklefield
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The often-fatal fungal lung disease invasive aspergillosis (IA) has claimed more than 8 million human lives since its. emergence ~ 40 years ago.
  Development of a novel therapeutic for the treatment of sickle cell anaemia
  Dr M Brennan, Prof M Devocelle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sickle cell anaemia is a chronic condition that is expensive to treat and requires significant clinical intervention and management.
  Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley, Dr C Whitfield
Application Deadline: 9 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
  Aerosol Dynamics on Inhalation at High Relative Humidity
  Prof J P Reid, Prof D Murnane
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD studentship starting in Autumn 2020 as part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science.
  Nanoparticle delivery of antibiotics for treatment of pulmonary infection
  Dr V Kett, Dr M Tunney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In respiratory diseases such as Cystic Fibrosis (CF) and COPD, the lungs are colonized by diverse polymicrobial bacterial communities.
  Development of an inhalable anti-tubercular therapies to include pre-clinical screening and 3D printing/additive manufacturing.
  Prof S Cryan, Prof A Heise, Dr J Keane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) is the primary infectious disease killer in the world. In 2016 alone 1.7million people died from TB and 10 million people fell ill [1].
  Pharmacoengineering of advanced RNA-nanomedicines to treat cystic fibrosis (CF)
  Prof S Cryan, Prof A Heise, Prof C Greene
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is an inherited disorder caused by a mutation in a single gene responsible for the production of a protein called the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR).
  (A*STAR) Unravelling the metabolic basis of Aspergillus fumigatus adaptation to combinatorial stress conditions
  Dr J Amich, Prof E Bignell
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aspergillus fumigatus is an environmental saprophytic fungus that lives ubiquitously in the soil. This fungus can also infect the lungs of individuals with any kind of immune imbalance, causing a broad range of diseases collectively termed aspergillosis.
  Soma-Germline communication and the role of cortical polarity in signalling regulation during Drosophila spermatogenesis
  Dr F Papagiannouli
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cells have the unique capacity to develop into specialized cell types in our tissue and organ systems. They are critical for multi-cellular development, since they supply the new cells that build up our bodies as we grow and replenish, as we age, worn out, damaged, and diseased tissues.
  Aerosol Jet Printed p- and n-type Semiconductor Materials: Practical Routes to Printed Electronics
  Dr A Johnson
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science (CAS) is inviting applications for a PhD research project at the University of Bath under the supervision of Dr Andrew Johnson https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/andrew-johnson.
  Crystallisation in nano-droplets
  Dr A Squires
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Aerosol Science (CAS) is inviting applications for a PhD research project at the University of Bath under the supervision of Dr Adam Squires https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/adam-squires.
  Modelling aerosols in an acoustic trap
  Dr A Souslov
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Acoustic levitation involves using sound from a speaker (or transducer) to float particles. These particles are suspended mid-air and do not touch the walls, so that levitation could become an essential platform for experimentally observing and analysing aerosols.
