We have 294 University of Southampton PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

SustAI CDT - The URKI AI Centre Doctoral Training in AI for Sustainability is now recruiting for September 2024

Environmental sustainability is one of the greatest challenges the world is facing, with many organisations and countries including the UK setting ambitious targets to reduce emissions and waste and increase renewable energy production. Read more

Systemic infections accelerate tau spreading by promoting glial activation

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease, with a complex biology. In this PhD project, we aim to explore the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying tau pathology. Read more

Fully funded PhD studentship: Transforming respiratory care at the bedside using machine learning assisted on-chip vibrational spectroscopy

Supervisory Team. Prof. Senthil Murugan Ganapathy. Project description. Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), a widespread respiratory condition affecting all ages, causes respiratory failure due to inflamed, fluid-filled lungs hindering gas exchange. Read more

Large area 2D semiconductor platforms

Project description. Revolutionising the semiconductor industry with next generation 2D materials and devices. Moore’s Law is currently being challenged with Nvidia CEO recently claiming it is over. Read more

Privacy Attacks and Defences in Federated Learning systems

  Research Group: Cyber Security
Project description. In the wake of growing data privacy concerns and the enactment of the GDPR, Federated Learning (FL) has emerged as a leading privacy-preserving technology in Machine Learning. Read more

Harnessing waste-heat from challenging environments with flexible electronics, sponsored by BAE Systems

Supervisory Team. Dr Katrina Morgan, Dr Ioannis Zeimpekis, Prof Nick Harris, Prof Steve Beeby. Project description. This PhD is a sought after industrial Cooperative Award in Science and Techology (iCASE), with sponsorship from BAE Systems Ltd. Read more

Chemically Modified Therapeutic Nucleic Acids for Neurological Diseases

Therapeutic oligonucleotides are unique in targeting mRNA particularly those that cannot be addressed by conventional small molecule drugs or therapeutic antibodies, their potential is growing fast. Read more

Biometric deepfake to physical attack instrument assessment

Deepfake technologies have increased the challenges to biometric systems. Generative AI tools are rapidly advancing, enabling the creation of media tuned to descriptive parameters that can be used within injection attacks, where data are presented to the algorithm in an electronic/media format. Read more

xAI for Biometrics – Legal Presentation of Data

Increasingly AI-based biometric technologies, such as facial recognition and voice biometrics, are playing a major role in assisting public authorities to protect the public, reduce serious crime, and help safeguard vulnerable persons. Read more

PhD Studentship in Quantum Technology and Nanophotonics: Programming photonic quantum chips using phase change materials

In this project, the student will develop new technologies for integrated quantum optical chips allowing programming and tuning of devices under different operating conditions and in particular for operation in a cryogenic environment. Read more
