  Multi-omics data fusion for better understanding of host-microbe interactions in health and disease
  Dr A Wijeyesekera, Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our lab uses cutting-edge combinations of neuroimaging and analytic techniques to investigate aspects of human cognition. Specifically, we’re interested in the following.
  Flexibility in Energy Demand - the role of technology
  Dr S Smith, Prof J Torriti
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Change in electricity generation sources and increasing energy demand are bringing into question the ability of existing energy distribution networks to cope with greater variation in supply by network management measures.
  Decision making dynamics with non spatially embedded networks and superimposed information layers
  Dr G Punzo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deciding between available alternatives, each more or less appealing than others depending on the proportion of people choosing it, is a classical decision and control problem.
  Information Dynamics in Decentralized Decision Making Processes
  Dr I Esnaola
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most daily-life activities of both humans and machines depend upon a simple yet central set of capacities inherent to humans and recently granted to machines.
  The role of the road network on city economic performance
  Dr G Punzo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims at mapping the transport enabled connectivity of the city economy. Using traffic data from Sheffield City Council and insights from the census, this project will draw a picture of mobility within Sheffield an across the City Region.
  Targeting pathogen subversion of cellular ageing to combat antimicrobial-resistant typhoid fever
  Dr D Humphreys, Dr T Darton
Applications accepted all year round
