Developing a Novel High Frequency Resonator Rheometer

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
The retrieval of nuclear waste from legacy facilities and its transfer to long-term storage is a top priority for the UK nuclear industry. Read more

Nanoparticle-based therapeutics to combat multidrug resistance and biofilms in chronic wound infections

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Read more

Stability Control of Polyaromatic Compounds

Polyaromatic compounds find a range of uses in various industries including agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, pigments and fuels. Their behavior in fluids is strongly influenced by the physicochemical properties which are typically defined by the carbon number and double bond equivalent. Read more

CDT (GREEN) Understanding the effects of natural SCMs in cementitious grouts designed for the safe disposal of nuclear wastes

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
Nuclear waste cementation is one of the UK strategies for the safe disposal of intermediate and low-level nuclear waste. These processes rely on the availability of Portland cement, along with cement replacements referred to as supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) (e.g. Read more

Bubble growth and gaseous release dynamics within viscoelastic nuclear wastes

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
We are looking for an enthusiastic graduate with 1st class honours or 2:1 in an Engineering or related discipline, for a 4 year funded joint PhD, as part of the Doctoral Training Centre in Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear (GREEN CDT). 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. Read more

Epigenetics and Cancer: Determining how Mistakes in V(D)J Recombination Trigger Leukaemias and Lymphomas

  Research Group: School of Molecular and Cellular Biology
V(D)J recombination is essential to produce an effective adaptive immune system but since the reaction involves the breakage and rejoining of DNA, it is highly dangerous and errors have long been thought to lead to leukaemias and lymphomas. Read more

Clinical: Gastroesophageal reflux in respiratory disease: pathogenic role and improved management

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a condition in which stomach contents, such as food and acid pass into the gullet/oesophagus causing heartburn. GERD is very common in patients with lung disease, such as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cystic fibrosis (CF). Read more

Cell Biology: Exploring the mitotic functions of ASPM in human brain size regulation

The increase in relative brain size is one of the most striking events in human evolution. To determine how human brain size is normally regulated we have investigated the cause of autosomal recessive primary microcephaly (MCPH), a congenital disorder of reduced brain size and associated mental retardation. Read more

Targeting protein acetylation to reduce microglia activation in neurodegenerative disorders

Recently, inhibitors of histone deacetylase enzymes (HDACs) have been identified as having potential therapeutic value for a range of neuronal disorders including Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and stroke [1, 2]. 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. Read more

PhD in Continuous Manufacturing and Advanced Crystallisation

The EPSRC CMAC Future Manufacturing Research Hub is offering 13 fully-funded industry-sponsored PhD studentships for research projects in the wider area of continuous manufacturing and advanced crystallisation. Read more

Neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease: what is the role of amyloid-beta fibril structure?

This project will explore the role of amyloid-beta fibril structure in triggering neuroinflammation in Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia and affects millions worldwide. Read more
