Wrapping virus-like particles in polymer films using protein-carbohydrate interactions

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Polymer films are widely used as barriers to protect objects from their environments or improve their performance.? What if tiny nano- or micron-sized objects could also be wrapped in thin layers of polymer films? Would they also gain benefits from their inclusion in wrappers in the same ways as macroscopic objects do? These questions lead to tantalising possibilities. Read more

Using individualised feedback to improve professional practice in health care

The aim of this PhD scholarship is to investigate the mechanisms by which feedback drives learning and improvement in professional practice for healthcare professionals. There are well-known variations in the quality of health care, which cut across all healthcare systems and specialties.

Postgraduate Research Opportunities in Sociology and Social Policy

The School of Sociology and Social Policy has a wide and varied portfolio of policy-relevant research that is both sociologically informed and methodologically innovative. Read more

Nanoparticle-based therapeutics to combat multidrug resistance and biofilms in chronic wound infections

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Read more

Improving support for people with severe mental illness to quit smoking: comparing a bottom up with a top-down quality improvement approach

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a PhD within the Improvement Science theme of the Yorkshire and Humber Applied Research Collaboration (YHARC), funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). Read more

Genetics: Investigating the functional effect of novel genes and genetic variants in malignant hyperthermia susceptibility using model systems

Malignant hyperthermia (MH) is an inherited condition, where patients exposed to anaesthetic drugs are susceptible to a dramatic hyperthermic and hypermetabolic response that can contribute to a significant proportion of post-operative morbidity and deaths. Read more

Postgraduate Research Opportunities in Education

The School of Education is recognised as one of the very best in the UK for its research and teaching excellence. We were ranked among the top 5 in the UK in the Research Excellence Framework 2014. Read more

Understanding the structural consequences of ribosome specialisation

Protein synthesis by ribosomes (translation) and its regulation is essential to life. While it has been traditionally thought that ribosomes were not involved in the regulation of translation, it is now becoming clear that they do contribute. Read more

Evaluation of potential therapeutics in a mouse model of KCNT1-related epilepsy

  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
Human mutations in the KCNT1 gene, which encodes a sodium-activated potassium channel, results in severe and drug-resistant childhood epilepsy. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.
