  Developing reliable ab-inito software for the interpretation of protein structure from BioSaxs data - EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed)
  Dr C Prior
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Biological small-angle X-ray scattering (BioSaxs) is an important method for determining protein structure. Data interpretation in this field is challenging, requiring forward modelling of the protein’s shape to make predictions.
  Harnessing Reactive Phosphorylating Agents for Peptide Bioconjugations - EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed)
  Dr D Hodgson
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Overview. Protein-protein interactions (PPIs) are central to signalling processes associated with many diseases. Disruption of PPI-mediated pathways offers new therapeutic targets, with great potential for selective, potent inhibition because they can mimic native protein structures.
  Modelling Wetting on Structured Surfaces using the Lattice Boltzmann Method
  Dr H Kusumaatmaja
Application Deadline: 20 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The wetting behaviour of liquids on solid surfaces plays an important role for current and emerging technologies involving liquids from the nano- to the macro-scales.
  Multiscale Simulations of Droplet-Membrane Mutual Remodelling
  Dr H Kusumaatmaja
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD studentship as part of the MoSMed CDT which is run jointly with Newcastle University.
  From Fragment-screening to Fragment-growing - new strategies for drug discovery - EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed)
  Dr E Pohl
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type-2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes is the most common form of this disease affecting between 150 and 400 million people worldwide.
  Unravelling the mysteries of retinoid signalling -EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed)
  Dr E Pohl
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Retinoid acid (RA) and its natural and synthetic derivatives control a wide range of cellular processes in chordates, including differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis and homeostasis, by regulating transcriptional control in the cell nucleus.
  Developing New Tools for the Chemical Diversification of Peptide Scaffolds (EPSRC Funded CDT in Molecular Sciences for Medicine - MoSMed)
  Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides are useful leads for the development of new drugs against a wide range of diseases. They occupy the chemical space between small molecules and antibodies and as such they can selectively inhibit targets that these other molecules cannot.
  EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Aura Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Offshore Wind Energy and the Environment invites high-quality applications from students from a broad range of academic backgrounds for 4-year taught and research PhD scholarships.
  PhD Opportunities in Fusion. Training the next generation of fusion scientists….

Funding Type

PhD Type

Training the next generation of fusion scientists…. Fusion has the potential to meet our energy needs in a sustainable way, with minimum impact on the environment.
  Validating and Exploiting Inositol Phosphoryl Ceramide Synthase as a Novel Herbicide Target
  Prof P Steel
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the global population predicted to continue rising there is a need for more efficient food production. An essential component of sustainable intensive cereal production is effective crop protection agents.
  Inorganic Solid State Phosphors for Energy and Environmental Applications
  Prof I Evans, Prof JAG Williams
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will develop solid state inorganic phosphors which exploit f‐ and d‐block activator elements in two main application areas.
  Fully-Funded Doctoral Studentship in Discovering Equations from Data in Biotechnology and Biotherapeutics
  Dr R Carvalho
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will investigate methods to automatically extract governing equations from large datasets in Biotechnology and Biotherapeutics in collaboration with industrial partners.
  Advanced Image Processing and Machine Learning Techniques for Complex Multidimensional Imaging Data
  Dr B Obara
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD in Computer Science at Durham University, UK. The project will develop techniques and methods for processing and analysis of complex multidimensional image data, with applications in biology, medicine, engineering, remote sensing, and arts and humanities.
  Local Tracking of Single Ions Dynamics at Solid-Liquid Interfaces
  Dr K Voitchovsky
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ions are everywhere in nature and technology. They play a crucial role in countless processes, from the salt we use in food to keeping the electrostatic balance in our bodies.
  The eyes have it: fetal reactions to visual stimulation
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The womb is not entirely dark and hence fetuses can perceive light. It is not clear what fetuses might be able to perceive and in what detail they might be able to “see” which has implications for cognitive development.
  Sounds in the womb: fetal reactions to what they hear
  Dr N Reissland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fetuses can hear from around the 23rd week of gestation. They are exposed to a variety of language and non-language sounds in the womb.
