  Plague hazard assessment toolset
  Prof C Molina-París
Applications accepted all year round
The pathogen of interest in this project is Yersinia pestis, a gram-negative bacterium and the causative agent of plague, a disease of humans and mammals which has been recognised since antiquity.
  Medical Research Foundation 4-year National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance Research
The Medical Research Foundation National PhD Training Programme in Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) Research is the first nationwide PhD training programme to tackle AMR – one of the greatest emerging threats to global human health.
  The size, sources and transport of the seeds of ice in clouds
  Prof J Murray, Prof C Noakes
Application Deadline: 15 April 2019
The formation of ice in clouds is one of the least well understood aspects of the planet’s climate system. Special aerosol particles, known as ice-nucleating particles (INPs), are needed to trigger ice formation in cloud droplets, whereas in the absence of INP cloud droplets can supercool to well below -35oC.
  How cells respond to stress: The role of chaperone post-translational modifications in health and disease
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A Zhuravleva, Prof R.W. Bayliss
Application Deadline: 1 May 2019
The Hsp70 chaperones are key cellular molecular machines that protect organisms from the toxic consequences of environmental and pathological stresses.
  Rational design and production of glyco-peptidic inhibitors of pathogens’ adhesion to host cells.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E Paci, Prof W B Turnbull
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019
The ability of protein molecules to stick to cells is crucial for life and disease. The project is based on a novel concept to design adhesive molecules based on multivalence and entropic stabilisation.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)
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 2019, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
  Pattern Formation (Applied Nonlinear Dynamics): understanding the formation and stability of complex patterns such as quasipatterns, spatio-temporal chaos or turbulent spirals
  Prof A M Rucklidge
Applications accepted all year round
Regular patterns, such as stripes, squares and hexagons, are ubiquitous in nature, and their formation and stability are governed by the intricate and complex interactions of symmetry and nonlinearity.
  Skyrmions under strain
  Research Group: Condensed Matter
  Dr T A Moore
Application Deadline: 3 May 2019
There has been an explosion of interest in skyrmions in recent years, with the very first x-ray images of skyrmion dynamics being released recently.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round
The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20
 . The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
