A major challenge for the next generation of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) is to enhance their efficiency and functionality by using electronic materials that emit circularly polarized light.
  Size effects in pure and alloyed metals under dynamic loading
  Dr B. Gurrutxaga-Lerma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The strength of metals and metallic alloys is usually thought to be independent of the system’s geometry and dimensions. However, at the micron scale this ceases to be true.
  Determining novel molecular regulators of necrosis controlling premature cell death
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Necrosis, a form of premature cell death, is frequently caused by excessive insults such as trauma, infection and toxins. It has been implicated in many human diseases including cancer, neurodegenerative disorders and inflammatory diseases.
  Regulation of apoptosis-induced compensatory cell proliferation and its implications for cancer and tissue regeneration
  Dr Y Fan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In multi-cellular organisms, coordinated cell death (e.g. apoptosis) and cell replacement is critical for tissue recovery in response to stress or damage.
