  Polymers for detection of infection
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The increase in resistance of bacteria to antibiotics is one of the biggest issues facing the world and many commentators have written on the catastrophic effects of the descent into a post-antibiotic world.
  Polymers for treating amoebic infections in India
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amoebic parasitic infections are widespread in the tropics. Amoebic dysentery can be fatal if the parasite progresses to the brain.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.
  Novel routes for manufacturing low carbon cements
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Global population growth, and the increased need for infrastructure, has doubled since 1990 the worldwide demand for Portland cement (PC), which is the main binder used in almost all concretes.
  Structural and Biophysical Characterisation of Novel Membrane Protein Ion Channels (Chinese candidates / China mainland only)
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the Pliotas group (https://www.pliotasgroup.org/) focuses on the investigation of molecular mechanisms which underlie the structure and function of integral membrane proteins, in particular ion channels.
  Resolving the limitations on plant growth and biomass
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett, Dr S Batterman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

What limits primary productivity in plants remains a major question relevant across scales and biological systems. Agronomists and farmers have long sought the factors that support efficient accumulation of biomass in order to maximize crop production.
  Learning to communicate: How do pheromones work in social and solitary bees and how did they evolve?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Honeybees, bumblebees and other bee species are facing a multitude of threats from disease, pesticide exposure and loss of habitat.
  Sociobiology on the fly; understanding social interactions in multispecies groups
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A Bretman, Dr X Harrison
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The effects of social environments on individuals are widespread, even in species not classically thought of as social (Bailey and Moore 2018).
  Invasive species and water resources: developing the evidence base for effective mitigation to prevent the spread of invasive non-native species through water transfer networks
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr A M Dunn, Prof M Tillotson
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) cost the UK over £2bn pa and are an increasing threat to aquatic biodiversity and ecosystems.
  Herbivore and mycorrhizal mediation of carbon cycling in heather moorlands
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S M Sait, Prof K. Field, Prof P Chapman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The multiple drivers of environmental change, such as climate change and pollution, have led to widespread negative impacts on ecosystem functioning and services that are critical for human well-being.
