  Optical Biosensor with Integrated Sample Processing
  Dr R Gupta
Application Deadline: 3 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is aimed at developing an optical biosensor integrated with electric field driven sample processing [1,2]. The biosensor will be used to test clinical samples for a range of disease conditions.
  Establishing a rationale for FGF23 modulation as a therapy in the critically ill patient
  Dr D Parekh, Prof D Thickett, Dr A Scott
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Everyone suffers at least one critical illness during their life. In the UK, 160,000 critically ill patients are admitted annually to intensive care units (ICU).
  Identifying typologies of General Practitioners’ through analysis of prescribing decisions
  Prof T Marshall
Application Deadline: 31 October 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It has been demonstrated that used Facebook users’ “likes” can be used to reliably identify their personality characteristics and preferences.[1] This project proposes to use general practitioners’ (GPs’) prescribing decisions to characterise their treatment preferences and provide insights into variation in clinical behaviour between clinicians.
  Uncovering the saliva proteome in co-morbid chronic inflammatory diseases
  Dr M Grant, Prof I L C Chapple, Mr P Sharma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Chronic inflammatory diseases such as periodontitis, rheumatoid arthritis, chronic kidney disease, diabetes and cardiovascular disease share common risk factors and biological pathways.
  Establishing a Scientific-Evidence Base for a Paradigm Shift for Regenerative Clinical Dentistry
  Dr J Camilleri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Management of diseases to the dental pulp is undertaken clinically using protocols that are historical and have no scientific background.
  Application of nanomaterials in precision agriculture to optimise nitrogen use efficiency and increase global food security
  Dr I Lynch, Dr S Ullah, Dr P Zhang, Mr A Witteveen
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global agriculture sector is facing a wide spectrum of challenges such as stagnation in crop yields, notoriously low nutrient use efficiency (NUE), poor soil health, shrinking arable land and water availability etc.
  Epigenetic contribution to grafting induced vigour in Solanaceous plants
  Dr M Catoni
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Grafting is a long-standing agronomical method used to improve plants production since more than 4000 years ago, consisting in physically joining two plants together, generally referred as rootstock (part below the ground) and scion (part above the ground).
  How does heterosis affect yield, quality and disease resistance in hybrid wheat?
  Dr P Borrill, Dr M Catoni, Dr C Uauy, Dr N Bird
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heterosis, or hybrid vigour, is the increased performance of a hybrid relative to the parents. The use of hybrid cultivars in maize and rice have increased the performance of these crops substantially, but the same approach has not yet been widely exploited in wheat breeding.
  Molecular Cookie Cutters: Cutting Edge Drug Discovery using G-Protein Coupled Receptors
  Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane proteins represent 30-40% of the cellular proteome and carry out a wide range of fundamental biological process. These include sensing the outside world, helping maintain cellular structure and homeostasis.
  The development of a cost-effective and stable single-administration vaccine (SAV) formulation to achieve vaccination regimen reduction
  Dr A Al-Khattawi
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vaccination has greatly reduced the burden of infectious diseases worldwide. However, many vaccines e.g. for DTP and Polio require repeated administration over months to achieve effective immunity.
  Extracellular Vesicles – defining the functional surface proteome of vesicles
  Prof A Devitt, Dr D Aubert, Dr A Goddard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Extracellular Vesicles (EV) are an exciting and novel mode of intercellular communication and they are known to have profound effects on recipient cells.
  Computational and Polymer Sciences to Engineer Microbial Physiology
  Dr S Jabbari, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling and statistical inference are key tools in understanding the life sciences. In this project, we will develop differential equation models and apply statistical inference techniques to understand how polymers can be engineered to be of practical use in microbiology.
  Engineering Microbial Physiology through Polymer and Computational Sciences
  Research Group: Materials Chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr S Jabbari
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, there has been an increasing use of polymers to interface with bacteria and other microorganisms, either to treat microbial infections, to prevent and control biofilm formation, or as a platform to grow and maintain microbial cultures for biotechnology.
  Biological nitrogen fixation in forest soils under elevated CO2: response of a key soil nutrient to global change
  Dr S Ullah, Dr A R MacKenzie
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an enthusiastic, well-qualified, and self-motivated candidate to join our team as a PhD student in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) at the University of Birmingham.
  Mathematical Modelling of Cancer-Cell Transmigration Through Blood Vessels
  Dr F Spill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer rarely kills through the primary tumour in which cancer arises, e.g. the prostate in prostate cancer. Instead, cancer cells may travel through the vasculature and colonialize distant organs – a process termed metastasis.
