PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in Lancaster

We have 48 PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships for Self-funded Students in Lancaster

Lancaster University Faculty of Health & Medicine, Division of Health Research

100% of our research environment is judged to be world-leading (4*) in REF2021. The Division of Health Research (DHR) has an active research community comprising over 100 staff from a range of academic and applied backgrounds. Read more

Self-assemblies to Influence Emitter Orientation and Fluorescence Trajectory

Background. Dr Jonathan Ward is a Lecturer in Chemistry at Lancaster University with an interest in the synthesis and application of π-conjugated molecules, designing molecules to exhibit useful photophysical properties for application in optoelectronics, photocatalysis and molecular electronics. Read more

The potential of local action to address structural determinants of health inequalities: A PhD fellowship

Public health practice and efforts to improve the social determinants of health inequalities operate within a climate characterised by multiple and intersecting crises including the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, global financial insecurities and climate change. . Read more

Expanding drug-relevant chemical space with Pt-Au bimetallic catalysis

Background. There is a constant demand for original, more potent drugs to target new and old diseases. Natural products remain a good source of pharmaceuticals, but their availability is limited in many cases. Read more

Polyoxometalate Hybrid Light Switches: From Molecule to Material

Background. Nothing travels faster than light, and non-linear optical (NLO) materials that manipulate laser light are vital to current high speed optical telecommunications, future optical or electro-optical computing, and a host of other applications. Read more

Probabilistic Linking in AI-Powered Knowledge Bases

We are currently seeking a PhD researcher in Statistics and Machine Learning for the project "Probabilistic Linking in AI-Powered Knowledge Bases.” This project aims to advance the state-of-the-art in probabilistic algorithms for entity linkage in large language models (see detailed project description below). Read more

Controlling Sequence in Biodegradable Polymers

Background. Modern society faces a plastic waste crisis, coupled with the urgent need to reduce our dependence on oil and gas. In tandem, the last decade has seen the design of ever ‘smarter’ and more functional materials and global demand for these materials is growing. Read more

Developing Electrically-switchable Glazing for Electric Vehicles

Project description. Lancaster University and Jaguar Land Rover are pleased to offer a fully-funded 3.5-year PhD position focused on the development of electrically-switchable glazing for electric vehicles. Read more
