  How protective signals from the gut modify neuronal activity and behaviour, using C. elegans as a model system.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr P van Oosten-Hawle, Prof N Cohen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid protein misfolding leading to loss of neuronal function are fundamental pathogenic mechanisms of numerous age-associated neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s (AD).
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Neurocomputational mechanisms of modularity in human motor control
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr I Delis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human motor behaviour is the outcome of the combined action of an extensive neural circuit that generates and controls movement and the mechanical properties of the human body.
  Structural insights into ligand binding and channel gating in ATP-gated P2X7 receptor
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr L H Jiang, Dr S Muench
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

P2X7 receptor, belonging to the ATP-gated ion channel P2X receptor family, exhibits distinct functional and pharmacological properties that are crucial for its role in innate immunity and inflammatory diseases and cancers (Jiang et al., 2013; Caseley et al., 2014; Roger et al., 2014; Wei et al., 2018).
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence for Medical Diagnosis and Care

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on the Leeds distinctive strength, depth and international excellence in multi-modal AI, and medical diagnosis and care, we will train cohorts of researchers equipped with the necessary skills to unlock the immense potential of AI within the health domain.
  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
  Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment
  Dr E Valleley, Dr L Coletta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC).
  Design and control of magnetic soft robot for surgical applications
  Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This vacancy is created by a major European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to the STORM Lab, which aims to define a new generation of surgical tentacle-like robots that can be magnetically guided within the human body by magnetic fields.
  Functional Evaluation of the Meniscus and Meniscus Replacement using MRI
  Dr R K Wilcox
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this PhD study is to develop new methods for examining the human knee joint under load using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
  Direct characterisation of TRPC channel dynamics triggered by drug-like modulators using high-speed atomic force microscopy
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr G Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rapid expansion in the structural understanding of membrane proteins through recent progress in electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography is leading to an ever greater need for techniques which provide high temporal resolution dynamics.
  Nanoparticle-based Therapeutics to Combat Multidrug Resistance and Biofilms in Chronic Wound Infections
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr Z Ong, Dr J R McLaughlan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
