  Uncovering new signalling nodes in the interaction between wheat and the fungal pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola (Septoria tritici)
  Prof A Sadanandom, Prof A Gatehouse
Application Deadline: 27 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycosphaerella graminicola is an economically important fungal pathogen of wheat leaves and the causal agent of Septoria tritici blotch disease (STB).
  Fully funded PhD Scholarship (3.5 years) in Pre-operative Assessment of Lower Limbs in Virtual and Augmented Reality
  Dr G Koulieris
Application Deadline: 23 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interpretation of medical imaging of lower limbs [1][2] can be challenging, given that complex 3D anatomy is evaluated on 2D screens, and there exists significant inter-observer variability.
  Platform Technology to Enhance the Growth of Human Tissues In Vitro for Use in Biomedical Research and the Assessment of New Molecular Entities
  Prof S A Przyborski, Prof T von Zglinicki
Application Deadline: 29 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many molecules fail when tested in humans as activity data do not always extrapolate into man. Accordingly, there is demand to develop new biomedical in-vitro assays to test compounds in human tissues earlier in product development.
  Characterisation of cell death pathways upon activation of the endoplasmic reticulum stress sensor IRE1alpha
  Dr M Schroeder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A self-funded PhD project to investigate cell death pathways activated by endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress is available in the group of Dr.
  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.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Molecular Sciences for Medicine - 4 year PhD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

The CDT in Molecular Sciences for Medicine (MoSMed) is a joint venture between Newcastle and Durham Universities. It will train the next generation of researchers at the interface of molecular and medical sciences, business skills, innovation and entrepreneurship.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

Funding Type

PhD Type

16 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 2020, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
