  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Integrated mathematical modelling and experimental research into interactions between microorganisms
  Dr J U Kreft
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our group aims to combine theoretical & experimental approaches to understand major problems in the ecology and evolution of microbes.
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  Mechanistic mathematical/computational modelling of the PAR polarity network
  Dr N Savage, Dr J Rodriguez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cell function is dependent on cell shape. For example, dendritic spine morphology changes from filopodia, which are thought to be searching structures, to mushroom shaped once a potential synaptic connection is found, increasing the postsynaptic surface.
  Multicellular Cell Differentiation Model: The control of root hair patterning in Aspergillus thaliana
  Dr N Savage, Dr A Bishopp
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants absorb water and nutrients from the soil through hairs that grow along their roots. As such, being able to manipulate root hair numbers may be advantageous to the development of crops more resistant to drought and nutrient deficient soils.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  The contradictory functions of carotenoid-based light-harvesters: Understanding energy harvesting and dissipation in the Fucoxanthin-Chlorophyll Protein (FCP)
  Dr C Duffy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Protein ghost recognition using deep learning
  Research Group: Sustainable Electronic Technologies
  Prof A Brown
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof Andrew Brown. Project description. POETS (Partially Ordered Event Triggered Systems) technology is based on the idea of an extremely large number (millions) of small processing cores, embedded in a fast, bespoke, hardware, parallel communications infrastructure – the core mesh.
  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
  Effective models for function-structure relationship in complex biological media
  Dr I Chernyaysky, Prof O Jensen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A complex multiscale relationship between the structure and function is common in many human organs (such as the lung, liver and placenta), and many diseases are associated with an imbalance in the relationship.
