  Toxicological Assessment of Nanomaterials towards the development of a Nanotoxocicology Framework
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of sophisticated delivery systems that allow the delivery and targeting of anti-cancer drugs into tumour tissue is an ever expanding area of research.
  Toxicological Assessment of Carbon Based Nanomaterials
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of sophisticated delivery systems that allow the delivery and targeting of anti-cancer drugs into tumour tissue is an ever expanding area of research.
  Carbon Nanotubes Mediated Drug Delivery in 3D cancer models
  Dr H Ali-Boucetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current treatment with anticancer drugs suffers from the drawbacks of systemic toxicity, drug resistance and limited cellular entry.
  Discovering molecular genetic mechanisms of central nervous system regeneration
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Is it possible to promote regeneration of the central nervous system after injury, damage or disease? During normal development, neutrons and glia interact to coordinate the generations of neutrons and glia, and direct cell migration patterns, axonal navigation, dendritic arborisation and the emergence of neural circuits.
  De novo design of a new generation of catalysts based on rhodium coiled coils
  Dr A Peacock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will generate a new class of miniature metalloenzymes based on rhodium coiled coils, which bring together the power of enzymatic catalysis, as provided by the coiled coil miniature protein-type scaffold, and small molecule rhodium catalysis.
  Molecular and genetic mechanisms of brain structural plasticity and neurodegeneration in the fruit-fly Drosophila.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain changes throughout life. brain plasticity enables the brain to adjust in response to experience, whereas during aging natural neurodegeneration takes over.
  Artificial metalloenzyme design with late transition metal active sites
  Dr A Peacock, Dr P Davies
Application Deadline: 15 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project involves the rational design, preparation and assessment of artificial metalloenzymes. Nature’s catalysts, enzymes, have been perfected by evolution to perform reactions under mild conditions and with enviable asymmetric control and selectivity.
  Metal-nitrogen-hydrogen materials for solid state electrolytes
  Dr J Makepeace
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications from enthusiastic and motivated students are invited for a PhD project with Dr Josh Makepeace at the School of Chemistry, University of Birmingham.
  Genetic analysis of the bacterial translocation machinery
  Dr D Huber
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Every subcellular compartment in a cell contains proteins, and yet all of these proteins are initially synthesised in the same compartment.
  Structural plasticity and regeneration in the Drosophila brain.
  Dr A Hidalgo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The brain is plastic. neurons and glia make adjustments in cell size and shape (dendrites, axons), in synapses, and in cell number, throughout life.
  Deprivation of Liberty in Mental Capacity Law and Practice: A socio-legal study of the new Liberty Protection Safeguards
  Dr R Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Mental Capacity (Amendment) Act 2019 introduced a new legal framework for protecting people with mental capacity impairments from being unlawfully deprived of their liberty through care and treatment arrangements.
  Planning for the Future: Legal Decision-Making and Dementia
  Dr R Harding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

People with dementia and those who care for them are some of the most disadvantaged and powerless people in our society. They require special attention in both law and society to ensure that their voices are heard, their rights are respected, and their interests are protected.
  Cognitive deficits and accelerated brain ageing in older adults at risk for undiagnosed sleep apnea
  Dr M Chechlacz, Prof H Dehghani
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cognitive ageing is inevitable but numerous studies indicate a large heterogeneity in the rate of cognitive deterioration, ranging from a gradual drop in cognitive functioning to dementia.
  The genetics of cognitive ageing: neuromodulators and prefrontal cortex
  Dr M Chechlacz, Prof G Gkoutos, Dr P C Hansen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuromodulators including dopamine, noradrenaline, serotonin, and acetylcholine have been implicated in numerous cognitive functions and behaviours.
  Artificial metalloproteins as novel MRI contrast agents
  Dr M M Britton, Dr A Peacock
Application Deadline: 10 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since MRI’s first clinical applications nearly thirty years ago, MRI has become an essential tool for clinical diagnosis. Image contrast is routinely enhanced by the use of a contrast agent (CA), with the overwhelming majority based on complexes of gadolinium, and more recently manganese.
