Clinical movement analysis provides quantitative information on patients with movement disorders in order to aid clinical decision making when managing their conditions.
  Biomechanical modelling of tendon transfers in the upper limb
  Dr E Chadwick, Dr D Blana
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Traumatic injuries to the hand and arm can result in serious loss of function for individuals, leading to an inability to carry out the activities of daily living, and a loss of independence.
  Bioinspired Robot Swarm for Monitoring Tasks
  Dr M Giannaccini, Dr A Starkey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for one doctoral position in robotics at the School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen. The successful candidate will undertake research focusing on bioinspired swarm robotics for monitoring applications.
  Soft Robotics Tactile Sensors for Healthcare
  Dr M Giannaccini, Dr E Chadwick
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for one doctoral position in soft robotics at the School of Engineering, University of Aberdeen. The successful candidate will undertake research focusing on modelling, designing and characterising bioinspired soft robotic sensors to enhance tactile sensing abilities in robots and prosthetics.
  Automated 3D Data Analysis using Artificial Intelligence - (studied by Distance Learning)
  Dr A Starkey, Dr M N Campbell-Bannerman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oil & gas sector and health sector has massive data sets in the form of seismic data and the health sector in MRI data that it needs to analyse in order to identify the location of hydrocarbons and also to assess the risk for drilling operations in a particular area, or to diagnose underlying health conditions.
  Reprogramming the innate immune system to fight ovarian cancer
  Prof M A Vickers, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 24 June 2020

Funding Type

This project is one of 16 four year PhD Studentships funded by Medical Research Scotland (https://www.medicalresearchscotland.org.uk) to be delivered jointly by the named University and External Partner Organisation (EPO).
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial and antiviral natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Dr R Ebel
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.
  Dynamic prediction modelling in Parkinson’s disease
  Dr D McLernon, Dr A Macleod, Dr C Counsell
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

1. Background to the project. Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a progressive, disabling, neurodegenerative disorder which is common in the elderly.
  Investigation of the environmental implications of decommissioning and the longevity and fate of offshore structures left in place

Funding Type

PhD Type

The National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) and Chevron Corporation have recently signed an Anchor partnership agreement that will fund a research programme to address some of the major questions around the environmental implications of decommissioning energy assets at a number of global locations and provide guidance for optimal decommissioning.
  Statistical physics of DNA replication
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Romano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to apply statistical physics and probability theory to the problem of DNA replication in living cells.

  Dr G I Paton, Dr L Mbadugha
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD opportunity to work with leading academics at the National Decommissioning Centre (NDC) and Chevron Corporation to address some of the major questions around the environmental implications of decommissioning energy assets at a number of global locations and provide guidance for optimal decommissioning.
  Acoustics to Monitor Fish on Man-Made Marine Structures
  Dr P Fernandes
Application Deadline: 4 June 2020

Funding Type

  Development of antiviral peptidomimetic enzyme inhibitors
  Dr L Trembleau, Dr H Deng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Coronaviruses are a large group of viruses that circulate and evolve among various animals. They can cause mild human illnesses such as the common cold or more serious respiratory diseases as seen in the recent outbreaks of SARS (2002), MERS (2012), and COVID-19 (2019).
  Imaging of element distribution in brain tissue
  Dr A Raab, Prof J Feldmann, Prof B Platt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Trace elements are non-homogenously distributed in brain tissue, the distribution depends on the element. There is some research indicating that trace elements, in particular Fe, Cu and Zn, are associated with neurodegenerative diseases.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
