  Studying phase transitions by computer simulation techniques
  Dr L Bartok-Partay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer simulation on the atomistic level became a powerful tool in modern chemistry in the past decades. Computational techniques are widely used to augment experiments and make initial predictions, thus saving time and money by reducing the amount of experimental work.
  Unusual properties of New Inorganic Framework Materials
  Dr A Chippindale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to synthesise and characterize new materials with open-framework structures, such metal phosphates, transition-metal cyanides or metal-organic compounds.
  SCENARIO - Determining carbon pool turnover rates in semi-arid biomes of Australia as drivers of global carbon cycle inter-annual variability
  Dr K.H. White
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The atmospheric carbon component exhibits large interannual variability primarily driven by terrestrial processes, some of which are poorly understood.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  SCENARIO - The domestication of Amazon rainforests by pre-Columbian societies
  Dr F Mayle, Dr JS Singarayer
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extent to which pre-Columbian (pre-AD1492) human societies transformed Amazonia from a virgin wilderness into a domesticated landscape is one of the most contentious debates in tropical ecology.
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in the patterns of carbohydrates produced by the cell can provide insights into disease states, revealing perturbations and differences in cellular metabolic processes.
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Design and synthesis of novel, targeted, anti-cancer agents
  Prof H Osborn, Dr F Greco
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the major problems of cancer chemotherapy is that the drugs used have poor selectivities for cancer cells and cause damage to normal cells and organs.
  Determining the susceptibility of nucleic acids to damage as a function of structure
  Dr J Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is to examine the relationship between the structure of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and their susceptibility to damage.
  Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs.
