  Molecular insights into a novel mammalian oxygen-sensing pathway (Ph.D in Biochemistry/Chemical Biology)
  Dr M White, Prof R Payne, Prof J Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Outstanding candidates with a background in biochemistry, molecular biology, organic chemistry or similar are invited to apply for a fully funded Ph.D scholarship…
  CO2 catalytic conversion into fuels and fuel-precursors using biomass-derived H-donors - LEVERHULME
  Dr I Graca, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This experimental project will deal with the global challenge of mitigating CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, by using CO2 as a raw-material to produce fuels and fuel-precursors.
  Conversion of waste plastics to fuel and energy - LEVERHULME
  Dr W Afzal, Dr I Graca
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The remarkable properties of plastics make them the most commonly used modern materials since early twentieth century. Every year several hundreds of millions of tons of plastics are produced globally.
  Efficient upgrading of biogas via plasma catalysis - LEVERHULME
  Dr P Kechagiopoulos, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, plasma-catalysis has emerged as a promising technology to improve the performance of existing catalytic processes.
  Heat pump assisted distillation for the energy efficient separation of the liquid phase products from anaerobic digestion - LEVERHULME
  Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman, Dr A Majumder
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is part of a wider research programme into biological routes for the synthesis of chemical products. A key element of this approach is the separation of the chemical products from the aqueous broths produced by the bioreactors/anaerobic digestors, which is commonly achieved via distillation.
  Can PTP1B inhibition rewire macrophage function to improve anti-tumour immunity in breast cancer treatment?
  Prof H M Wilson, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Delibegovic, Prof V Speirs
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Treatment for breast cancer is improving but new therapies are often only successful in a proportion of patients and some patients develop resistance.
  Examining the biology of breast cancer diagnosed in women aged 40 and under
  Prof V Speirs, Dr E Husain, Dr Y Masannat, Dr R Sharma
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is diagnosed in around 55 000 women in the UK each year. While typically more common after the menopause, some 10 - 12% of breast cancers are diagnosed in women under the age of 40.
  Exploiting the endocannabinoid system in chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
  Dr F Murray, Dr J Hislop, Prof R Pertwee, Prof M A Vickers
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endocannabinoids, such as anandamide and 2-arachidonoyl glycerol, are endogenous cannabinoids produced in mammalian tissues that are anti-proliferative, anti-metastatic and pro-apoptotic in lymphoma and leukaemia.
  Identifying the determinants of tumour susceptibility to replication-inhibiting chemotherapy
  Prof A Donaldson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome replication and maintenance are central for cell division, and derailment of these processes is a major cause of cancer.
  Impact of the immune landscape on androgen ablation therapy and progression to therapy-resistant disease
  Prof I McEwan, Prof H M Wilson, Dr S R Dundas
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and is a leading cause of cancer related death. The androgen receptor is important for the development and function of the prostate gland and is a driver of prostate cancer progression and metastasis.
  Molecular modelling of novel anti-cancer molecules targeting Mortalin-p53 interaction
  Dr S R Dundas, Prof A Donaldson, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mortalin is a highly conserved member of the heat shock 70 family which, when over-expressed, plays a pivotal role in dysregulating signal pathways implicated in carcinogenesis.
  New approaches to treating metastatic bone disease in breast and prostate cancer
  Dr A Riemen, Prof V Speirs, Prof A Johnstone
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is a common metastatic site for breast and prostate cancers. Once metastasised to bones, one-year survival for prostate cancer is 29% (4) compared with 59% for breast cancer.
  Reprogramming the innate immune system to treat malignancy: targeting ovarian cancer
  Prof M A Vickers, Prof I Stansfield, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the major advances achieved in recent years by redirecting the adaptive immune system to recognise cancer cells (notably monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors and chimaeric antigen receptor T cells), the therapeutic potential of innate immunity remains underexploited.
  An improved C. elegans model of Alzheimer’s Disease to monitor neuronal signalling activity
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen, Dr S Clapcote
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is one of the most common form of neurodegenerative diseases known today, affecting approximately 50 million people worldwide.
  EPSRC and SFI CDT in Sustainable Chemistry Atoms-2-Products: An Integrated Approach Fully funded 48-month PhD studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC and SFI CDT in Sustainable Chemistry. Atoms-2-Products would like to invite suitably qualified and highly motivated applicants interested in working in the two of our research thematic areas “Machine Learning Supported Catalysis” and “Sustainable Gelators and Rheology Modifiers”.
