  Dynamics of a minimal neuronal network with multisynaptic dendrites
  Dr J Liu, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 5 May 2019
Neurons are morphologically very complex cells with large arborisations that can extend for several millimetres. Communication between neurons relies on action potential driven release of neurotransmitter at specialised sites called synapses.
  A chemical sensor to detect active metabolites linked to the pathogenesis of neurodegenerative disorders
  Dr A Hudson, Prof F Giorgini
Application Deadline: 25 April 2019
Kynurenine is an intermediate in the pathway that converts the amino acid, tryptophan, to the redox enzyme, nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+/NADH) - an essential molecule of life.
  What’s the Matter with Walruses?
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round
Walruses, the tusked and massive marine mammals, spend much of their time resting on polar sea ice, but when that ice recedes in the summer months, they must find shore.
  Microbial Micro-Engineers
  Dr M Mazza
Applications accepted all year round
Microorganisms occupy every crevice within global ecosystems and impact all aspects of life. However, too little is understood about their movement within physical crannies, and how they can restructure these microspaces for their own benefit.
  Growth of a bacterial biofilm
  Dr M Mazza
Application Deadline: 1 June 2019
The vast majority of living organisms are microorganisms such as bacteria and archaea. We now know that most microorganisms do not live in the planktonic state, but rather in organized communities called biofilms.
  Adding a New Layer to Biophysics
  Dr T Shendruk
Applications accepted all year round
In recent years, there has been an explosion in applying liquid crystal theory to biological systems. Dense suspensions of swimming microbes, cytoskeletal components, fibrous tissues and bacterial colonies all exhibit properties associated with nematic liquid crystals.
  Porosity tailored titanium scaffolds for bone engineering
  Dr C Torres-Sanchez, Prof P Conway
Applications accepted all year round
Replacing a part or a function of the body in a safe, reliable, long-lasting and economic manner is the main motivation of this study.
  Mechanics of Advanced Materials: the response of advanced engineering and bio-materials to various types of external loading and environmental conditions - Ref: VS2UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round
In the last two decades, Mechanics of Materials as a discipline has experienced a type of revival. The main reason for this has been a continuing introduction of new materials (or even their classes) with extraordinary microstructures, properties and performance.
  Mechanics of biomaterials: characterisation and quantification of interaction between microstructure and mechanical properties - Ref: VS1UF2018
  Prof V Silberschmidt
Applications accepted all year round
Understanding mechanical properties and performance of various biological materials and tissues and their responses to different loading and environmental conditions is becoming increasingly important for development of new medical procedures and devices.
  Analysis of mechanisms of pre-mRNA splicing by single molecule fluorescence
  Prof I C Eperon
Applications accepted all year round
Project co-supervised with Dr D. Cherny. Pre-mRNA splicing is highly complex. Over a hundred proteins and several RNA species assemble into dynamic complexes, in a pathway defined by several stable partial complexes.
