  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  The Unknown Unknowns: Quantifying Uncertainty in Deep Machine Learning
  Prof N Robertson
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deep learning has seen incredible success in a huge range of applications ranging from audio visual data to natural language. For all its success, to become truly viable for safety critical or auditable applications, there is a requirement for understanding when it doesn’t work and why.
  Understanding the link between healthy ageing and social interaction
  Dr E Kevei, Dr N Vasudevan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Healthy ageing is a priority for all countries since we are living longer than ever before. A number of studies show that social behaviours can prevent some detrimental aspects of aging such as dementia and memory loss.
  Autonomous learning with Artificial Intelligence
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to learn the sensorimotor maps of unknown environments without supervision is a vital capability of any autonomous agent, be it biological or artificial.
  Structural studies of the TPLATE complex
  Dr K Tripsianes
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The TPLATE complex (TPC) is essential for endocytosis in plants, yet it is evolutionary lost from yeasts and animals, pointing to the fact that endocytosis is mechanistically regulated differently.
  Regulating Shedding of Syndecan-3: A Novel Approach to Combat Bone Ageing
  Prof R van ‘t Hof, Dr K Yamamoto, Dr A Daroszewska
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing is associated with bone loss, osteoporosis and fragility fractures, which impact on health and quality of life. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying age-related bone loss are currently largely unknown.
  Biologically-Plausible Continual Learning
  Dr K Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Continual learning (aka lifelong learning) refers to a problem on how a learning system learns multiple tasks in succession over the lifespan where later tasks do not degrade the performance of the system learned for the earlier tasks and, ideally, the system can leverage the knowledge learned in previous tasks to facilitate learning the new tasks better.
  Computational modelling of the emergence of somatosensory cortical maps
  Dr H Saal, Dr SP Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to to build a computational model of the development of cortical somatotopy in humans, focusing specifically on the representation of the hand.
  A Theoretical Investigation in Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management
  Research Group: Operational Research
  Dr A Avramidis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is aimed at a primarily theoretical investigation in Dynamic Pricing and Revenue Management, drawing from Applied Probability and Mathematical Statistics, and contributing to these areas.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Optimising Mechanical Performance of Additively Manufactured (3D Printed) Titanium Alloys
  Dr M Kartal, Dr Amir Siddiq
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additive Manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a common term used to describe the technology in which three-dimensional (3D) objects are fabricated by successive layers of material.
  Ontology-based system for human movement experts
  Research Group: Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group
  Dr C Luca, Dr F Cavallerio, Ms K McDonald
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. Computing, Informatics and Applications Research Group and. Cambridge Centre for Sport and Exercise Sciences. (https://www.anglia.ac.uk/science-and-engineering/research/institutes-and-groups/cambridge-centre-for-sport-and-exercise-sciences).
  Central Nervous system Gene therapy to treat obesity Bardet-Biedl Syndrome (BBS). Analysis of the BBS brain development
  Dr V Hernandez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bardet-Biedl syndrome (BBS) is a debilitating, often life-limiting heritable multisystem disorder caused by dysfunction of non-motile cilia (ciliopathy).
  Egr2 and 3 mediated T cell tolerance in cancer and their impact in immune checkpoint therapy
  Dr S Li
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tumour infiltrated lymphocytes (TILs) contain tumour reactive T cells and have been used as adoptive cell transfer therapy in patients which can mediate cancer regression.
