EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

17 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT) commencing in September 2021, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering. Read more

Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments. Read more

Artificial cells with biochemical clocks: oscillatory enzyme reactions in confinement

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
Artificial cells are engineered materials that mimic one or more of the functions of living biological cells. Oscillating chemical processes are common within living organisms to control a variety of essential processes, including the metabolism of sugars and the release of hormones. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) offers a four year programme that combines an integrated MSc (completed over the first two years) paired with a three year PhD-level research programme. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.

Understanding the physics of liquid crystal elastomers and composites

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) were recently discovered by us to be the first synthetic molecular auxetic materials - they have a negative Poisson's Ratio and get thicker when stretched rather than thinner. Read more

Directed Co-Crystallisation of Pharmaceuticals: developing a predictive method for co-crystallisation

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
In this project, we propose to use a combination of computational and experimental techniques to develop a predictive method for co-crystallisation. Read more

Pushing the Speed Limits of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Understanding the structural dynamics of complex molecules is vital to advancing our knowledge of materials, medicine and diseases, yet there are few techniques which can capture motions at high enough speeds or resolution to understand the underlying behaviour. Read more

Molecular transport of water and solvents through organic crystal lattices

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The project aims to understand, and measure the transport rate of water and organic solvents through crystal lattices. Building on work in the large EU project ProPAT, this will be achieved by measuring the desorption rate of solvent from crystals using NIR. Read more

X-Shooter spectroscopy of Massive Young Stellar Objects

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The formation of massive stars, stars much more massive than the Sun and which explode as a Supernova at the end of their lives, is still shrouded in mystery. Read more

Terahertz quantum cascade lasers

  Research Group: School of Electronic & Electrical Engineering
The terahertz frequency range sits between the microwave and mid-infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum, but has long resisted exploitation owing… Read more

Auxetic liquid crystal elastomers as novel molecular materials

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
When most materials are stretched, they become thinner in cross-section. On the other hand, certain non-conventional materials, called auxetics, instead become thicker when stretched. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecules to Product

50 funded PhD studentships will be available over the next 5 years for UK and EU students. The Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecules to Product will train tomorrow's research leaders with the skills and know-how in designing, characterising and developing the next generation of chemical and material based products.
