  A ‘Metastasis-On-A-Chip’ Microphysiological Model of Cancer Metastasis to Bone
  Dr M Amer, Dr V Pensabene, Prof F Meldrum
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is a frequent site of cancer metastases and usually indicates poor clinical prognosis. Metastasis of tumour cells in the bone marrow is a dynamic process, and cell behaviour is regulated by three-dimensional (3D) cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions with its microenvironment.
  Control of Magnetically-driven Soft Continuum Robots
  Prof P Valdastri, Prof R Harris
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetically-driven Soft Robots are of increasing interest due to the range of new transformative applications they may enable. Within these are continuum robots which are of particular focus due to their potential to be used within the body to perform diagnostics and treatments.
  Fabrication of Magnetically-driven Soft Continuum Robots
  Prof R Harris, Prof P Valdastri
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetically-driven Soft Robots are of increasing interest due to the range of new transformative applications they may enable. Within these are continuum robots which are of particular focus due to their potential to be used within the body to perform diagnostics and treatments.
  Controlling Microstructure of Metal and Polymer Aerogels via Advanced Templating Approaches
  Dr R Menzel
Application Deadline: 26 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aerogels are highly-porous, nanostructured materials with great potential in advanced technologies including energy generation, (electro)catalysis, and sensing.
  The Effectiveness of Esters in Cooling and Lubricating Transmission Systems in Electric Vehicles-Dielectric Fluids
  Dr S Kosarieh, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 30 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Energy conservation and emissions reduction have become increasingly significant for automobiles due to high energy demand, fuel economy and environmental concerns.
  Developing an Imaging-Diffraction Method for Corrosion and Steel Degradation Studies
  Dr A Matamoras Veloza, Prof A Neville
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project provides an excellent opportunity for doctoral training on corrosion and steel degradation as part of a collaborative work between the School of Mechanical Engineering, University of Leeds and ISIS Neutron and Muon Facility, at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory near Oxford.
  Towards the predictive design of PAEK-based polymers - from fundamental polymer physics to advanced materials applications
  Research Group: Soft Matter Physics
  Dr J Mattsson, Dr P Hine
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is focused on developing a predictive framework to control glass-formation and crystallization in polymers, with a particular focus on the efficient design of high performance polymers within the Poly Aryl Ether Ketone (PAEK) family.
  Health Opportunity for Patient Empowerment in Gestational Diabetes (HOPE-GDM)
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof A M Graham, Prof R Qahwaji, Prof A Locke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gestational Diabetes is a temporary condition diagnosed at 24-28 weeks gestation, where the body is unable to maintain normal blood glucose levels due to insulin resistance during pregnancy.
  What do we do with left over Magnox: optimisation of a direct encapsulation process for the treatment of Magnox fuel and wastes
  Prof B Hanson, Dr B Mishra
Application Deadline: 18 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is possible that a small quantity of Magnox fuel may not be reprocessed. Experience from the First Generation Fuel Storage ponds at Sellafield site shows us that wet storage of Magnox fuels leads to extensive corrosion of the cladding and partial corrosion of the uranium metal.
  Strategic synthesis of magnetically interesting high nuclearity complexes of 3d-4f metal ions
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr C Seaton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecule-based magnets are highly interesting with their potential applications in high-density data storage devices and quantum computing.
  Biodegradable composite materials (Bio-PolyMOFs) for applications in targeted delivery of drugs to improve healthcare and reduce antimicrobial resistance in developing countries and worldwide
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr A L Kelly, Dr M Katsikogianni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growing antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is one of the major global challenges and is linked to the use of unnecessarily high doses of orally administered antibiotics following medical surgery and infections.
  Impact of RhoA deregulation on smooth muscle cell phenotypic dysfunction in Type 2 diabetes
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type 2 diabetes (T2D) is an escalating healthcare burden. It inflicts significant physical and emotional distress on patients and their carers, and treatment of T2D and its complications accounts for ~10% of the entire NHS budget.
  Developing a tissue engineered/polyurethane blood vessel using bioengineering techniques
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Prof A M Graham, Dr K Riches-Suman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vein graft failure is a significant issue in cardiovascular disease patients, with restenosis caused by alterations in flow patterns leading to remodelling and disease progression.
  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.
