  Robotic Molecules: Self-repairing and Self-assembling Machine
  Dr S Miyashita
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to develop a totally new approach for the realization of self-repairable and self-assemble machines. We literally aim at making "living LEGO".
  Responsive biomaterials with tunable self-healing properties
  Dr C Spicer, Prof D K Smith
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The use of biomaterials to regrow or repair damaged biological tissue has the potential to revolutionise how we treat disease.
  Self-powered cardiac implantable devices enabled by energy harvesting from heart motions (HFUF2019)
  Dr H Fu, Prof S Korossis
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nowadays, implantable medical devices are widely used in patient assistance, monitoring, and diagnosis. However, these devices are powered by batteries inside the implants that have limited discharging capability or via transcutaneous power leads connected to wearable batteries.
  Bioactive Peptide Nanostructures: The relation between bioactivity and molecular self-assembly into diverse nanostructures
  Prof I W Hamley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research into bioactive peptides includes work on antimicrobial peptides, amyloid-related peptides with relevance to protein misfolding diseases such as Alzheimers, lipopeptides with applications in immune therapies and for wound healing and skincare.
  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  EASTBIO Forward engineering of pattern formation: Models and experiments towards predictive multicellular self-organisation
  Research Group: Institute of Stem Cell Research
  Dr G Blin, Dr L Schumacher
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The aim of developmental biology is a complete understanding of how the embryo develops, how embryonic cells acquire their fate and how they arrange in time and space to create complex organisms.

  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
  Prof A Straube
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disciplines. Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences,. Subjects. Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology / Development.
  Electronic switching of peptide self-assembly: new approaches for directing nanofabrication.
  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
  Dr S D Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomolecular recognition is considered one of the most promising approaches for high-throughput nanofabrication. For example, the ability of proteins, peptides or DNA to assemble spontaneously into complex and well-defined 3D structures has been exploited for fabricating a range of nano-structured materials and devices.
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
