  Understanding and Engineering E. coli biofilm formation
  Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biofilms are communities of bacteria living together, bound by a self-produced extracellular matrix, often attached to a solid surface (Hall-Stoodley et al., 2004).
  Functional nanoparticles for plant systems (EPS2020/37)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop nanoparticle-based reagent for delivery of bioactive molecules to plants. Food shortage is likely to be a major concern in the next decade if the global population grows at the current rate.
  Magnetic molecular imprinted polymers (MMIP) for detecting biohazard pollutants (EPS2020/35)
  Dr HHP Yiu
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed to develop MMIP for binding and detecting harmful biomolecules in the environment. Biohazard pollutants are health concerns but they are usually at a very low concentration that many conventional monitoring techniques are inefficient.
  Engineering of Halomonas to develop a robust microbial chassis for renewable bio-LPG and bioplastics production.
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr N Dixon
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual award PhD in Synthetic and Systems Biology - Manchester and Tsinghua University.
  EastBio Understanding the Structural Basis of Encapsulin Assembly for Efficient Engineering of Encapsulated Enzymes
  Dr D Clarke
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-Supervisors. Dr Stephen Wallace, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh. Dr. Louise Horsfall, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh.
  3D shape reconstruction of deformable objects for biomechanics applications
  Dr A Drory
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for an exciting fully-funded PhD studentship in the Bioengineering Research Group, Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham.
  New approaches for studying and understanding Cancer
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Prof SD Evans
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key questions in cancer research is what drives cells to switch from a normal healthy state to a cancerous one, in which they continually divide and reproduce.
  (BBSRC DTP) A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond the reach of experimental techniques but can be achieved through synergy with computational chemistry.
  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.
  Heat Transfer between the ocean and the seabed: implications for the effective operation of marine high voltage cables.
  Dr J Dix, Dr G Callender, Dr J Pilgrim, Dr T Henstock
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. The temperature of the sediments that surround buried marine high voltage cables play a critical role in their design, operation and maintenance.
  Bacteria Recognition-Extraction from Wastewater (BREW) for next generation Microbial Fuel Cell Technology (Ref: Renu20-06)
  Dr M Peeters
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU) is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham.
  Precision Medicine DTP - Tumour exosome-functionalised magnetic nanoparticles for magnetic resonance imaging guided precision medicine and personalised breast cancer treatment
  Dr M Chen, Dr B Qian, Prof R Vellaisamy
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. One of the difficulties in cancer treatment is the tumour heterogeneity. Therefore, the conventional “one size fits all” approach and even the targeted therapeutics will not efficiently treat all cancer patients.
  Nanoparticle conjugates for agricultural disease detection and diagnosis
  Dr L Wong, Prof J Micklefield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infectious diseases in plant crops present a significant socioeconomic burden globally, as they compromise the safety and reliability of food supply, as well as other agricultural products.
  Nanoparticle based delivery to the heart
  Prof R O'Reilly, Dr K Gehmlich, Dr A Pearce
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description.
  Developing a Combined 105Pd NMR and XRD/Neutron Diffraction Approach to Enable the Study of Pd Metal Nanoparticle Systems Used in Industrial Catalytic Processes
  Dr J Hanna
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

An ability to clearly relate local (short range) structure to the function of any material is a critical feature for any catalytic system.
