Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Memory consolidation and forgetting in natural and artificial neural circuits
  Dr A Lin, Prof E Vasilaki
Application Deadline: 31 December 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

How should intelligent systems store learned information? Biological brains have evolved to retain important information as consolidated memories, while forgetting unimportant or obsolete memories.
  Unravelling the mysteries of retinoid signalling
  Dr E Pohl, Prof J Endicott
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoids, such as all-trans-retinoic acid (ATRA), are a class of endogenous molecules derived from Vitamin A. These compounds control a wide range of cellular processes in chordates, including differentiation, proliferation and apoptosis, by binding one or more of related transcriptional receptors in the cell nucleus.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Answering Questions about Medical Images (Canon Medical Research Europe, Ltd)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Dr F Deligianni, Dr J Dalton
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Visual Question Answering (VQA) [1] is the task of answering free-text questions about the content of images. For example, given an image of a room - ‘What colour is the chair standing in the corner?’ - answering this question requires joint understanding of vision, language, spatial reasoning, and common sense.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  SOLAR-protect: preventing human skin aging with tomato extracts (GAVRILOVICU20CASE)
  Dr J Gavrilovic, Dr F MacMillan
Application Deadline: 23 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Maintaining healthy skin as we age is vital to prevent a number of skin conditions and diseases, including cancer.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Neuronal Dynamics from a complex network perspective
  Prof A Politi, Dr E Ullner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain is possibly the most intriguing complex system we know. The combination of experimental work and theoretical approaches has gained many insides in the last century but we are still far away from a real understanding.
  PhD Studentship in Biomechanics and energetics of foraging in leaf-cutter ants.
  Dr D Labonte
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Evolutionary Biomechanics Laboratory invites applications for a research studentship in the field of insect biomechanics/physiology, leading to the award of a PhD degree.
  Cell-permeable cyclic peptide library generation for target-based screening
  Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Waring, Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides hold enormous promise as chemical tools for selective intervention in biology. They can target chemical space distinct from that of small molecules and their chemical diversity provides high specificity and affinity or target binding.
  Design and synthesis of DNA encoded libraries of unnatural peptides to discover specific chemical probes
  Prof M Waring, Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Noble, Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides of allow the rapid identification of protein ligands from huge libraries of genetically encoded peptides, including cyclic peptides.
  Molecular cancer therapeutics activated by radioisotope-generated Cerenkov radiation
  Dr J Knight, Dr R Pal, Dr K Rankin
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The beta-particles emitted by certain medical radioisotopes can travel faster than light through the human body. When this happens, a photonic boom - comparable to a sonic boom – releases energy in the form of Cerenkov radiation which has a characteristic blue glow.
  Developing New Tools for the Chemical Diversification of Peptide Scaffolds
  Dr SL Cobb, Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Waring
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides are useful leads for the development of new drugs against a wide range of diseases. They occupy the chemical space between small molecules and antibodies and as such they can reach or selectively inhibit drug targets that these other molecules cannot.
  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).
  PhD Positions in Life Science Research Groups supported by a structured PhD program
