  Investigating pear-shaped nuclei with radioactive ion beams
  Dr L Gafney, Prof R Page
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most atomic nuclei are not spherical as envisaged in the simplistic picture, but they are in fact deformed. The lowest order and most common deformation observed is the quadrupole shapes of prolate and oblate nature, i.e.
  Exploring the role of meiotic proteins in cancer
  Dr U McClurg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is one of the main causes of death worldwide. The main challenge is the development of treatments specifically targeting cancers without killing healthy cells.

The Department of Geography and Planning, Liverpool University, supported by the ESRC North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP), invites applications for a funded 1+3 or +3 PhD project “Turning the tables.
  X-ray Characterisation of Energy Materials
  Prof C Lucas
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synchrotron radiation (SR) is revolutionising the fundamental understanding of materials through the application of x-ray diffraction and spectroscopy techniques.
  Supersonic Gas Jet for High Luminosity LHC
  Prof C Welsch, Dr H Zhang
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020
