  EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWANO)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Established in 2013 with EPSRC funding and now supported by the University of Manchester and industry, Graphene NOWNANO CDT offers PhD training in science, technology and applications of the fast-growing family of two-dimensional materials.
  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
  A bioinformatics approach to understanding protein solubility tags
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr R Curtis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The crowded environment of a cell cytoplasm reveals that proteins and other biological molecules co-exist at high macromolecular concentrations.
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  Characterising surface properties of protein biopharmaceutical molecules
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr J Warwicker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein biologicals have great potential for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases. However, aggregation and instability are inherent issues with all protein pharmaceuticals, which is a problem that can limit their utility and developability.
  Establishing NMR chemical shifts as reliable reporters of atomic charge distributions in enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Prof P Popelier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Enzymes are not only central to life but also to the growing need to harness elements of the natural world to the benefit of mankind.
  Modelling photosynthetic water oxidation
  Dr P O'Malley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims use molecular modelling methods and spectroscopy to understand how the protein environment of electron transfer cofactors in photosysnthesis and in particular how the water oxidising complex, facilitates electron transfer and also helps stabilise these radical species to maintain a charge separated state.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.
