  Investigating the mechanobiological mechanisms of cancer
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is the second-leading cause for death globally and there is a high demand for novel approaches to understand and treat cancer.
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence

Funding Type

PhD Type

Building on a tradition of world-leading research and innovation at the University of Edinburgh, our Centre will train a new generation of interdisciplinary scientists who will shape the development of AI within biomedical research over the next decades.
  Mechanics of Advanced Materials: the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions - Ref: VS2UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
  High-throughput discovery of novel antibiotics using synthetic microbiology
  Dr R Draheim
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a frequent problem in the treatment of disease caused by several clinical bacterial pathogens. In the European Union, antibiotic-resistant infections kill nearly 25,000 patients and represent a total expenditure of £1.5 billion per year.
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a self-funded project, match-finding option may be available for qualifying candidates. Please include a detailed CV with any enquiries.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Application Deadline: 3 September 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.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Prof LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation represents an effective strategy used by cells to enhance their activities. By creating physical barriers and compartments, cells sequester the metabolic pathways from the cellular milieu to allow controls of metabolic flux and toxic diffusion.
  Elucidating Disease Mechanisms using New Approaches to Capture Transient Protein Complexes in the Mitochondria
  Prof L-Y Lian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Its malfunction is the cause of many diseases, ranging from cancer to heart and neurological diseases, which become more prevalent with age.
  Evolutionary insights for engineering improved globin oxygen carriers
  Dr M Berenbrink, Dr J Madine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Around 2 million red blood cell units at a cost of 120.00 GBP per unit are transfused annually in England alone (http://www.nhsbt.nhs.uk/what-we-do/blood-transfusion/).
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Dr D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein structural information is crucial for an understanding of protein function and evolution. Currently, there is only experimental data for a tiny fraction of the protein universe.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
