  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.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  The synthesis and photolysis of photoacid generators used in polymer resists for making silicon chips
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer resists are used as thin films in the manufacture of silicon chips. They are spin coated onto a silicon wafer and irradiated through a pattern in a mask.
  Accountable autonomy of software agents
  Prof W Vasconcelos, Dr N Oren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many tasks once performed by humans are now carried out by autonomous artificial intelligence systems. An important aspect of such systems is their accountability, that is, how their decisions and behaviours can be recorded, scrutinised and, if necessary, revised.
  Complex Norm Synthesis via Deep Learning
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how agents operating as part of a group should learn behaviours that benefit the group as a whole. These behaviours are commonly referred to as norms, and describe obligations, permissions and prohibitions on actions in specific contexts.
  Early Stage Researcher in Explaining Bayesian Reasoning
  Prof E Reiter
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

People have a hard time understanding probabilistic and Bayesian reasoning, because we don’t naturally think in probabilistic terms.
  Explainable Autonomous AI Systems
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how the decisions made by an AI system operating as part of a group can be explained.
  Novel Approaches to Engaging Land Managers in Monitoring the Impact of Agri-Environment-Climate Schemes
  Dr K Prager, Prof S Redpath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agri-environment-climate schemes (AECS) are a voluntary policy mechanism to incentivise and compensate farmers for undertaking environmental measures as part of their land management.
  SEESALT: Novel ways to ’SEE’ coastal ’SALT’ marshes using low-cost drones and sensors
  Dr D Green, Dr D Mauquoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saltmarshes are found extensively along low wave energy coastlines resulting from fine sediment accumulation and vegetation establishment.
  Sustaining partnership approaches – evaluating effectiveness, health and longevity of agri-environmental collaboratives
  Dr K Prager, Dr T Potts
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A multitude of partnerships have developed between actors from the farming, environment, conservation, community, business and government sectors.
  Algebraic groups, geometric invariant theory and boundedness
  Prof B Martin, Dr E Meir
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Group theory is the mathematical study of symmetry. Algebraic groups are certain groups of matrices with entries coming from a field such as the real numbers, the complex numbers or the integers modulo a prime.
  Algebraic Methods in Musical Composition
  Dr W Turner, Dr E Henke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Algebraic operations have been used as compositional tools for centuries. For example, the group theoretical operation of translation on the integers can be identified with the musical operation of transposition.
  Applications of topology to soft matter physics
  Dr M Grant, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address mathematical problems in the research field of algebraic topology, inspired by the theory of topological defects in soft materials.
  Applied Algebraic Topology in Geometry
  Dr R Hepworth, Dr M Grant
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years the techniques of algebraic topology have been applied to data analysis with great success, and the resulting subject areas of Applied Algebraic Topology and Topological Data Analysis have seen rapid growth.
  Combinatorial Representation Theory: Partitions and Basic Sets
  Dr J.B. Gramain, Dr W Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The representation theory of many families of finite groups can be presented in terms of combinatorial objects. The most famous example is the symmetric groups, where the irreducible complex representations are parametrized by partitions.
