  Nanoparticle based delivery to the heart
  Prof R O'Reilly, Dr K Gehmlich, Dr A Pearce
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description.
  Supramolecular sensors for the detection and removal of environmental pollutants
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of selective supramolecular sensors that undergo a macroscopic, detectable response upon binding a particular substrate is an intense area of interest.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Early life adversity and hippocampal dysfunction in rodents: the impact of novel, fast-acting antidepressants
  Dr S Martin, Prof J Lambert
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Molecular Modeling for Design of Biochar Materials
  Dr V Erastova
Application Deadline: 9 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project brings molecular modeling into biochar research, providing atomistic details to the key properties of biochar, and through this enabling the informed design and optimization of biochar for desirable functionality.
  Unravelling and modelling endogenous controls of plant respiration. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof S Sitch
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Stephen Sitch, Department of Georgraphy, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Microplastic Transport in Environmental Flows
  Dr R Dorrell
Application Deadline: 13 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastics are anthropogenic particles that range from micron to millimetre in size. Carrying biological and chemical pollutants they pose a significant risk to natural ecosystems and habitats.
  MPhil/PhD Studentship in Biomechanics
  Dr F Mulloy, Dr S Willmott, Dr S Lindley, Prof D R Mullineaux
Application Deadline: 17 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

School of Sport and Exercise Science, University of Lincoln. Delsys Europe Ltd, Salford, UK. The School of Sport and Exercise Science, at the University of Lincoln are offering a funded studentship, in partnership with Delsys Europe Ltd.
  Cell biology and evolution of cancer metastasis
  Prof P R Dash
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the spread of cancer, a process called metastasis. Metastasis is responsible for the majority of cancer deaths and there are currently no effective treatments to stop this process.
  Metal-organic nanosheets (MONs): Programmable 2D materials for use as sensors, catalysts, membranes and devices
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two-dimensional nanomaterials such as graphene hold enormous potential for use in advanced electronics, energy, separation and composite materials applications.
  Mesoscopic modelling of Polymer Nano-composites
  Dr A Parnell, Dr B Chakrabarti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The statistical theory of transport in polymer networks and gels, which are examples of mesoscale porous structures holds many challenges, including connections between structures across length scales, their associated mechanics, and role of thermal fluctuations.
  Climate Change, Plate Tectonics and Machine Learning
  Dr C Rychert, Dr J Whiteside
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Our understanding of the transition from the lithospheric plate to the weaker asthenosphere has recently been revolutionized by seismic imaging that finds a sharp, strong discontinuity at the base of the plate.
  Evolution of Southern Ocean temperature and Antarctic circumpolar circulation.
  Dr S Bohaty, Prof P Wilson, Dr CD Hillenbrand, Assoc Prof H Scher
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The flow of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) through the Drake Passage is the primary conduit for modern surface and deep-water communication between the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
  Computational Modelling of Leidenfrost Fractals
  Dr J Sprittles
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Leidenfrost effect levitates small liquid drops above hot surfaces via a strong evaporative flux and is seen when water droplets skate across a hot pan.
  Band structure measurements in van der Waals heterostructures
  Dr N Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angle resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) beautifully reveals the momentum-resolved electronic structure at the surface of crystalline solids.
  Developing a Combined 105Pd NMR and XRD/Neutron Diffraction Approach to Enable the Study of Pd Metal Nanoparticle Systems Used in Industrial Catalytic Processes
  Dr J Hanna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An ability to clearly relate local (short range) structure to the function of any material is a critical feature for any catalytic system.
