  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.
  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.
  Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials.
  Nanoinjection: a single molecule technique to study amyloid toxicity in neurons
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford, Dr P Actis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in amyloid disorders such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. Want to work with cutting edge technology in a multidisciplinary team.
  Enhancing stability of biocatalyst for fuel cells and bioelectrocatalysis
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Progress in biotechnology over the last two decades has greatly increased the use of biocatalyst in the industrial production of fine chemicals.
  Direct characterisation of TRPC channel dynamics triggered by drug-like modulators using high-speed atomic force microscopy
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr G Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rapid expansion in the structural understanding of membrane proteins through recent progress in electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography is leading to an ever greater need for techniques which provide high temporal resolution dynamics.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Mathematical Virology: A New Mathematical Approach to Viral Evolution Grounded in Experiment
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling of natural phenomena has the potential to be predictive but requires direct verification by experiment. Such models can then be very powerful indicators of our understanding and they permit in silico simulations of situations that are difficult to test experimentally.
