  Local gene drives for mosquitoes
  Dr M Anderson, Dr R Noad, Prof L Alphey
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship funded by The Pirbright Institute is available to highly motivated students interested in genetic control of mosquitoes.
  Defining antigenic structure of avian influenza virus haemagglutinin protein to generate broadly reactive antibodies
  Dr J Sadeyen, Prof J Stewart
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza viruses are an increasing threat to global poultry production and, through zoonotic infection, to human health where they are considered viruses with pandemic potential.
  Improving vaccines for poultry: targeted delivery of multivalent viral antigens to distinct immune cells of different avian species
  Prof M Iqbal, Prof D Blake
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Avian influenza viruses (AIV) continue to be responsible for severe economic losses in poultry production in many parts of the world and remain a credible threat to food security and public health.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Understanding resin distribution during modification of wood
  Dr D Jesson
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wood modification uses a range of processes to alter wood’s properties. It is often used to improve properties of sustainable plantation softwoods.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Non-Markovian dynamics in biomolecular complexes
  Dr M Florescu
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this study, we will model the non-Markovian dynamics of biomolecular aggregates and structured phononic baths employing open quantum system techniques which go beyond the Markov approximation.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Ultrafast excited-state dynamics of photo-excited fluorophores
  Prof J Allam
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to characterize excited-state ultrafast dynamics of photo-excited fluorophores that is required to reveal the underlying physics by which fluorescent proteins enable quantum behaviours under physiological conditions.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Highly efficient photons detection in retina
  Dr M Shkunov, Prof C Lane
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to translate understanding of nature’s exceptionally efficient phototransduction processes in animal retinas to synthetic photo-systems, leading to bio-compatible devices, such as artificial retinas, which do not require external wiring and are capable of restoring lost vision in humans.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Measurement of proton position in DNA
  Prof J J Mcfadden, Dr D Whelligan
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations are a cause of cancer and genetic disease as well as being the driver of drug-resistance in cancer and infectious disease.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Quantum and drugs: spin dynamics in an antibiotic (theory)
  Dr B Howlin, Prof J J Mcfadden
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spin physics, the science that describes how electron spin may be coupled through ‘spooky action at a distance’ or quantum entanglement.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Classical and quantum thermodynamical frameworks for understanding off-equilibrium properties of living systems
  Dr A Rocco, Prof J Al-Khalili
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

“Quantum thermodynamics” and “Thermodynamics of small systems” are exciting new areas of fundamental research, which may help explain how life maintains its highly ordered, low entropy, dynamical state.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Feasibility Study of Organic Semiconducting crystals for dosimetry in Radiotherapy and radioprotection applications
  Dr P Sellin, Prof M Petasecca
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This joint UK-Australia project will develop new radiation sensors using novel organic single crystals. Students will spend half their time at the University of Surrey in the UK, and half their time in Australia at the University of Wollongong, close to Sydney.
  PhD Opportunity in room temperature coherent interactions between fluorescent proteins
  Prof J Allam
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum coherence between fluorescent proteins (FPs) at physiological temperature was thought to be impossible because of rapid vibrational decoherence and structural limitation in close proximity.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity: Exploration of ion selectivity in the Epithelial Sodium Channel
  Dr R Lewis, Dr B Howlin
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion channels in living cells are examples of where quantum effects can play a role in biology. These proteins provide a selective conduction of ions across cellular membranes, which is crucial for cell survival.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in quantum and drugs: spin dynamics in an antibiotic
  Prof J J Mcfadden, Dr SS Turner
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spin physics, the science that describes how electron spin may be coupled through ‘spooky action at a distance’ or quantum entanglement.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Quantum Biology in Photosynthesis
  Prof J J Mcfadden, Dr D Beste
Application Deadline: 19 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project will be to examine predictions of the hypothesis of our collaborator, Professor Alexandra Olaya-Castro (AOC), that the interplay between excitonic and vibrational motions is involved in maintaining long-lived coherence in photosynthesis complexes.
