  Automatic Activity Analysis, Detection and Recognition for Efficient Visual Surveillance
  Research Group: Visual Computing
  Mr I Mehmood
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The detection and recognition of human actions from real-time CCTV video data streams is a popular challenge, with the potential to aid in video surveillance and anomaly detection of, for example, potentially hazardous scenarios in factories.
  ISIS Beamline Facility Development Studentship: Opto-Electronic Control of Magnetism
  Dr O Cespedes, Prof S Langridge
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project to be carried out in collaboration between the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source, a world-leading centre for research at the STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) near Oxford, and the University of Leeds.
  Reconfigurable Polymers via Supramolecular Self-Sorting
  Prof A J Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to mimic the ability of biological materials to force macromolecular reconfiguration using photo-switchable non-covalent self-sorting.
  TRANSCEND: Advanced ultrasonic characterisation of slurry flows
  Dr T Hunter
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We present an opportunity for STEM graduates to be a part of an exciting new consortium in nuclear waste management and decommissioning, with a fully funded PhD in advanced ultrasonic characterisation of waste slurry flows, for remote process control of nuclear waste transfers.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  Developing pluripotent stem cell models of inherited retinal diseases
  Prof C A Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Inherited retinal dystrophies are a leading cause of blindness and visual loss in the UK working age population. However, despite the widespread diagnostic use of next-generation sequencing, a molecular genetic diagnosis is unavailable for many patients world-wide.
  Epigenetic therapy using ultrasound-mediated microbubble drug delivery for cancer treatment
  Dr E Valleley, Dr L Coletta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is an interdisciplinary, pre-clinical study that aims to investigate the response of human tumour cells to treatment with epigenetic inhibitors (such as DNA methyltransferase inhibitors), as a potential combination therapy for colorectal cancer (CRC).
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Design and control of magnetic soft robot for surgical applications
  Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This vacancy is created by a major European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to the STORM Lab, which aims to define a new generation of surgical tentacle-like robots that can be magnetically guided within the human body by magnetic fields.
  Impact of Sediment Transport and Vegetation to the Reservoir Hydrodynamics within Fluvial Environment
  Research Group: Centre For Sustainable Environments
  Prof F Hu, Dr J Pu
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Reservoirs and dams are popular control mechanisms for different water resources around the world. However, lately, there have been increasing incidences of reservoir failure linked to sediment transport and vegetation within its environment, that have caused massive financial and social impacts.
