EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

17 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 2021, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering. Read more

Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments. Read more

Stability Control of Polyaromatic Compounds

Polyaromatic compounds find a range of uses in various industries including agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, pigments and fuels. Their behavior in fluids is strongly influenced by the physicochemical properties which are typically defined by the carbon number and double bond equivalent. Read more

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics

The Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) offers a four year programme that combines an integrated MSc (completed over the first two years) paired with a three year PhD-level research programme. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize. Read more

Directed Co-Crystallisation of Pharmaceuticals: developing a predictive method for co-crystallisation

  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
In this project, we propose to use a combination of computational and experimental techniques to develop a predictive method for co-crystallisation. Read more

Pushing the Speed Limits of High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Understanding the structural dynamics of complex molecules is vital to advancing our knowledge of materials, medicine and diseases, yet there are few techniques which can capture motions at high enough speeds or resolution to understand the underlying behaviour. Read more

Observational studies of massive star formation (1)

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Leeds is one of the leading institutes in the in the observational study of massive star formation. We have specific interests in the near infrared, radio and mm properties, since these can probe the disc around the young star, as well as the jets and winds it generates. Read more

Nanoparticle-based therapeutics to combat multidrug resistance and biofilms in chronic wound infections

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Chronic wound infections are a significant and fast-growing global healthcare problem compounded by the widespread occurrence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Read more

CDT (GREEN) Understanding the effects of natural SCMs in cementitious grouts designed for the safe disposal of nuclear wastes

  Research Group: School of Civil Engineering
Nuclear waste cementation is one of the UK strategies for the safe disposal of intermediate and low-level nuclear waste. These processes rely on the availability of Portland cement, along with cement replacements referred to as supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) (e.g. Read more

Dust and gas filaments in the Interstellar Medium

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Herschel observations have revealed that every interstellar giant molecular cloud contains a rich network of filaments (e.g. Andre et al. Read more

X-Shooter spectroscopy of Massive Young Stellar Objects

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The formation of massive stars, stars much more massive than the Sun and which explode as a Supernova at the end of their lives, is still shrouded in mystery. Read more
