  The Biology of Parasitism in Parasitic Nematodes
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We work on the biology of parasitic nematode worms, particularly Strongyloides spp. The recent, detailed characterisation of the Strongyloides genome (Hunt et al.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  Molecular Assembly in Porous Liquids
  Dr R Greenaway
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Porous materials have a wide variety of applications, such as gas uptake, catalysis, separations, and energy storage. These materials are typically solids, but recently, we have shown it’s possible to form liquids with permanent intrinsic porosity.
  Femtosecond synchronization for externally-injected laser wakefield acceleration at CLARA
  Dr L Corner, Dr E Snedden
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded studentship from Oct 2020 on the development of synchronisation, timing and feedback mechanisms in laser plasma wakefield acceleration (LWFA), held at the University of Liverpool and the Accelerator Science and Technology Centre (AsTeC) at the Daresbury Laboratory.
  Suppression of electron cloud in future particle accelerators using Laser Ablation Surface Engineering
  Prof A Wolski, Dr O Malyshev, Dr R Valizadeh
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available from October 2020 to study Laser Ablation Surface Engineering (LASE) for the suppression of electron cloud in future particle accelerators.
  University of Liverpool - Management School

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Liverpool Management School is a world leading centre for education, management and leadership training, and research.
  Computational Studies of Novel Cathode Materials for Li Ion Batteries
  Dr M Dyer
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the growing use of portable electronics and the environmental drive to electrification of transport, the search for lithium ion batteries with improved performance is an exciting and topical area of research.
  Robot grasping and manipulation for materials discovery in a chemistry lab
  Prof A Cooper, Dr S Luo
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

New materials are the foundation of the development of key technologies such as advanced batteries for electric vehicles, solar cells, catalysts for clean energy, and more.
  Novel non-coding RNAs in Drug response, DNA Damage and Aging
  Dr A Kanhere
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. One of the biggest surprises of human genomic sequencing was the finding that only ~2% of the genome codes for proteins.
  Advanced Mathematical Optimisation in Materials Chemistry
  Dr M Dyer, Dr V Gusev
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. The global optimisation of properties such as energy as a function of atomic positions is prevalent in materials chemistry.
  Application of artificial intelligence to analysis of chemical and structural data
  Dr S Chong, Dr L Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Please note that this project will remain open until a successful candidate is found. The analysis of structural characterisation data is a time-consuming stage in the development of new functional materials.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  The effect of low protein diet on the development of the musculoskeletal system
  Dr A Vasilaki, Prof MJ Jackson, Dr I Kanakis, Dr K Whysall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Age-related sarcopenia is characterised by reduction in the number of myofibres and motor neurons and an additional weakening of the remaining fibres, causing reduction in muscle mass and function.
