  Understanding and predicting disease-associated mutations in dynamic and disordered regions of proteins
  Research Group: MRC Human Genetics Unit
  Dr J Marsh
Application Deadline: 13 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from outstanding candidates to join the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Application of Data-Driven Technologies to Aid Pneumonia Diagnosis in Resource-Constrained Settings
  Dr A Shah, Prof S Cunningham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Pneumonia is the leading cause of death among children younger than 5 year worldwide. The majority of these deaths occur in resource-constrained settings.
  River Soar Natural Flood Management: Bringing together local scale impacts and catchment scale strategies
  Dr I Pattison
Application Deadline: 22 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding, and management, cost the UK £2.2billion per year. Under current economic pressures, flood policy is shifting from entirely flood defenses to broader management strategies.
  Digital Manufacturing of Wearable Sensors and Soft Robots
  Dr M Amjadi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Integrated Soft Machines Lab in the Institute of Mechanical, Process and Energy Engineering (IMPEE) at Heriot-Watt University is offering a 3-year fully funded PhD studentship to explore digitally manufactured wearable sensors and soft robots.
  UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence

Funding Type

PhD Type

Now recruiting to a fully funded 4-year programme, to start in September 2020.
  Cold-water coral reef growth and loss in a changing ocean
  Dr S Hennige, Prof M Roberts, Dr U Wolfram
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Cold-water corals (CWC) are key habitat-forming organisms found throughout the oceans from 30 to 3000 m deep. The complex three-dimensional frameworks made by these vulnerable marine ecosystems support high biodiversity and commercially important species compared to neighbouring, less complex habitats.
  Assessing the impact of multiple environmental stressors on Atlantic Ocean deep-sea ecosystems
  Research Group: Institute of Life and Earth Sciences
  Dr A Sweetman
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Since the mid-20th century, pressure from fishing has increased along continental margins and offshore banks and seamounts worldwide, with many pelagic and benthic ecosystems having already been heavily impacted by trawling and substantial international concerns raised over the potential impacts of deep-water hydrocarbon exploration and production.
  Signal Processing and Machine Learning for microendoscopy sensing for in vivo pharmacology
