  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Distributed Algorithms

Funding Type

PhD Type

60 funded PhD studentships will be available over the next 5 years for UK and EU students.
  PhD in Fundamental Physics: Advanced Charged Particle Dynamics in Electromagnetic Fields
  Dr S Maher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Charged particle dynamics (also known as charged particle optics) is concerned with the manipulation of charged particles (e.g., electrons, protons, ions) within an electric and/or magnetic field.
  PhD in Micro/Nano Vacuum Electronics
  Dr S Maher, Dr I Sandall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Vacuum tubes (or valve electronics) were a key component of electronic circuits for the first half of the 20th century, crucial for the development of the radio, television, radar, computers, etc.
  PhD in Healthcare Technology Development using Biosensors: Novel Point-of-Care Lateral Flow Assay for Salivary Biomarkers
  Dr S Maher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Saliva is an incredibly rich matrix, a valuable source of biomarkers for a range of diseases, yet it is vastly underutilised in medical diagnosis.
  PhD in Instrumentation/Electronics: Development of a Novel Portable Ion Mobility Spectrometer
  Dr S Maher
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ion mobility spectrometry (IMS) is a versatile analytical technique that allows general-purpose chemical detection and measurement.
  Differential Regulation of the Stimulator of Interferon Genes (STING) pathway in HPV+ and HPV- Head and Neck Cancer
  Dr L Dahal, Prof T Jones
Application Deadline: 2 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Head and neck cancers (HNC) represent a heterogeneous cluster of aggressive, difficult to treat malignancies that account for 3% of cancers in the UK.
  Centre for Doctoral Training in Data Analytics and Society

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an exciting opportunity to undertake a 4-year funded integrated PhD and MSc in Data Analytics and Society, working on a project which has been developed in conjunction with external organisations.
  Optics measurements and corrections for future electron colliders and light sources
  Dr T Charles, Dr I Agapov
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electron storage rings have been instruments of choice for precision measurements both in High Energy Physics colliding beam experiments, as well as experiments with synchrotron radiation in materials science, life science, and others.
  Bioinspired nanotopographies to control bacterial adhesion and biofilm formation
  Dr R D'Sa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By 2050, it is predicted that the rise of resistant strains of bacteria and the ever-growing threat of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will be the cause of 10 million deaths annually, and will burden the global economy by £64 trillion.
  Investigation of the role of post-translational modifications in hypoxia signalling
  Dr V See, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hypoxia signalling pathway is required for the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen environment, which cells can experience in various physiological and pathological circumstances related to high altitude, development, wound healing and cancer.
  Validation of novel biomarkers for improved risk stratification and therapy for the paediatric cancer neuroblastoma
  Dr V See, Dr A Herrmann
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuroblastoma is the second most common cancer in childhood but still has one of the lowest survival rates of all childhood malignancies.
  Dam reliability assessment
  Prof S Ferson, Dr L Di Sarno
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dam failures can be estimated by structural reliabily analysis given local environmental conditions and history (if available). Such analysis can be used to identify dams at risk and derive fragility curves for multiple natural and man-made hazards.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Vapour deposited coatings for long cycle-life Li-ion positive electrodes
  Dr LJ Hardwick, Prof M J Rosseinsky
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The positive electrode (or cathode) represents one of the greatest barriers to increasing the energy density of lithium-ion batteries.
