  Emissions of Greenhouse Gases from Extensive Agriculture in the Indio-Gangetic Plain
  Dr H Boesch, Dr H Sembhi
Application Deadline: 8 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Agriculture is the world’s second-largest emitter of damaging greenhouse gases (GHG) after the energy sector. The future growth of the global population will result in additional pressures on the agricultural sector to secure food production whilst aiming to reduce GHG emissions.
  Unlocking Western Tropical Indian Ocean temperature and hydroclimate back to the Little Ice Age and the Holocene, reconstructed from coral geochemistry
  Prof J Zinke
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indian Ocean sea surface temperatures (SST) play an important role in determining the location of precipitation over the tropics and the Indian Monsoon regions.
  Bioinspired worm-like nanoparticles for the delivery of anti-cancer stem cell agents
  Dr K Suntharalingam, Dr R Britton
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer relapse and metastasis, the leading cause of cancer-associated deaths, is strongly linked to the existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs), a small sub-population of cancer cells defined by their ability to self-renew, differentiate, and form secondary tumours.
  Efficient Evolution for Intelligent Autonomous Systems
  Dr J Ringert, Dr I Tyukin
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Informatics Ringert 2020. Intelligent software is pervading the world around us. It is the driving enabler for innovations and products from autonomous vehicles, to enhanced health care, to efficient crisis response, to simple things like recommending the right movie for inspiration.
  Assembling a toolbox to study protein molecular glue kinetics.
  Dr R Doveston
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interactions between proteins form a communication network that is an essential feature of life. In many human diseases, especially cancer, one or more these interactions become dysregulated.
  Constraining CO2 emission of cities with sensor networks
  Prof H Boesch, Dr J Vande Hey
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Physics Boesch 2020. Reducing carbon emissions to prevent damaging climate change is one of the grand challenges of our time.
  Discovering rare brown dwarf companions to white dwarfs
  Dr S Casewell, Prof G Wynn
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project reference. CSE Physics Casewell 2020. Brown dwarfs are often thought of as failed stars.
  The first supermassive black holes
  Dr J Aird, Prof J Osborne
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supermassive black holes, with masses up to billions of times the mass of the Sun, are found at the centres of most galaxies, including our own.
  Plant and crop fertility: the evolution and impact of gene control networks
  Prof D Twell, Dr R Badge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant fertility is vitally dependent upon sexual reproduction and the differentiation of male (sperm) and female (egg) gametes. Despite the importance of this process for future food security we have limited knowledge of the mechanisms involved in gamete development.
