  Multicellular Cell Differentiation Model: The control of root hair patterning in Aspergillus thaliana
  Dr N Savage, Dr A Bishopp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil through hairs that grow along their roots. As such, being able to manipulate root hair numbers may be advantageous to the development of crops more resistant to drought and nutrient deficient soils.
  Developing and testing models of human tooth shape using dental radiographs
  Prof H Liversidge, Prof F Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Human teeth vary in shape. The dimensions and shape of teeth from dental radiographs has not been studied in detail. Knowledge of the variation in crown and root dimensions of the mature tooth helps to define abnormal teeth as well as abnormal tooth eruption.
  Integrating with Renewable Energy Sources: Low Pressure Steam Turbine Last Stage Blade Durability
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof P.A. Reed
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increased deployment of renewable energy sources requires integration with conventional power plant to back-fill the inevitable dips in supply.
  Developing novel bioactive restorative materials
  Dr J Camilleri, Dr M Milward, Prof PR Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This work will focus on gingival recession and the use of smart dental material in order to mitigate it. Gingival recession is prevalent in the adult population with studies suggesting that approximately 50% of the population has one or more recession defects this increases to 88% in over 65 year olds.
  Function of miRNAs in formation and regeneration of human hair follicles
  Dr S Kurinna, Dr S Herrick, Prof R Paus
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in treating a severe skin condition with autologous transgenic keratinocyte cultures emphasises the importance of molecular mechanisms in selecting subpopulations of skin cells for cutaneous repair [1].
  Understanding the aetiology of diabetic neuropathy
  Dr N Gardiner, Dr R Unwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Diabetic neuropathy is a common secondary complication of diabetes mellitus which affects around 50% of all patients with diabetes - impacting on health, wellbeing and quality of life.
  Seeing the unseen: application of novel sensor networks to measure the potential of soils for greenhouse gas mitigation.
  Dr L Todman, Prof M Lukac
Application Deadline: 7 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils can store carbon but also emit greenhouse gases such as nitrous oxide. As such, there is global interest in understanding the role that soils could play in mitigating net greenhouse gas emissions.
  Combining melatonin and omega-3 fatty acids to manage chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy and spinal injury-induced neuropathic pain.
  Prof H Galley, Dr W Huang
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) is a common and debilitating complication during cancer treatment, which can lead to chemotherapy drug dose reduction or treatment cessation.
  Medicinal Chemistry - ‘Prion diseases: how to develop therapies for prion diseases’
  Prof S Ward
Application Deadline: 23 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project will be funded through a Scholarship which will be delivered jointly by the Coleg Cymraeg Cenedlaethol and Cardiff University.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): High-Reliability Materials for High-Intensity Laser Applications (UnikLasers)
  Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Selection and recruitment to this project will be conducted in parallel with our other projects being advertised with UnikLasers.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  Examining the interactions between plant-feeding insects and symbiotic fungi
  Prof A Gange
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

“Plants are not discrete entities, but instead are mergers of fungal cells with plant tissues”. This statement implies that every living plant has fungi living within the roots and shoots.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Soil microbiome function controlling radionuclide bioavailability and soil-to-plant transfer
  Dr J Pittman, Dr C Robinson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the behaviour and environmental impacts of radionuclides such as radium (Ra) and uranium (U) is of critical importance for the management and risk modelling of sites with elevated concentrations of these radionuclides.
  PhD: Characterisation of whole plant abiotic stress resilience traits
  Dr R Bhosale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The PhD student will work as part of a team conducting multi-trait rice phenotyping to establish the genomics basis of stress resilience using GWAS approaches.
