  (EPSRC DTP) Understanding the impact of capillary network structure on oxygen delivery in the brain using MRI and computational modelling
  Dr L Parkes, Dr A Revell, Dr H Boutin, Prof S Allan
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vascular network supplying the brain is highly specialised and tightly regulated in order to meet ever-changing metabolic demand.
  (EPSRC DTP) Understanding the toxicology of frontier bioelectronic materials and devices
  Dr A Povey, Dr L Wong, Dr L Majewski
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Silicone-based elastomers [1] and intrinsically conducting polymers [2] (ICPs; e.g. polyanilines, polythiophenes, polypyrroles) are likely to be important components of the next generation of implantable bioelectronic devices due to their viscoelasticity, resistance to biofouling, chemical and thermal resistance.
  EPSRC CDT in Advanced Biomedical Materials
Application Deadline: 21 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited from qualified graduates for fully-funded four-year PhD studentships in the area of Advanced Biomedical Materials.
  (ACED Non-Clinical) Development of a 3D in vitro lung cancer model to track genetic instability
  Prof S Cartmell, Dr A P Gilmore, Dr A Malliri
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This interdisciplinary project will utilise a variety of material science and biological approaches to create an improved in vitro lung tumourigenesis model that can be used for therapeutic pre-clinical testing and biological mechanistic study.
  Range verification in proton beam therapy through prompt gamma-ray imaging
  Dr M Taylor, Prof R Mackay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. The beauty of proton therapy over x-ray therapy is that the majority of protons stop within the patient. The problem lies in the fact that we cannot tell, with a great degree of accuracy, exactly where they stop !.
  “Smart” scaffolds for preventing post-surgery infections and evaluation in a simulated in vivo microenvironment
  Dr A Anastasiou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections associated with bacterial colonisation around implants and scaffolds is a significant clinical problem both in orthopaedics and regenerative dentistry.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering aims to train the next generation of leaders at the interface of biology, engineering and data science.
  Effective models for function-structure relationship in complex biological media
  Dr I Chernyaysky, Prof O Jensen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A complex multiscale relationship between the structure and function is common in many human organs (such as the lung, liver and placenta), and many diseases are associated with an imbalance in the relationship.
  Up to 10 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics

Funding Type

PhD Type

Up to 10 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Prosthetics and Orthotics, commencing in October 2019.
  Genetic mechanisms of chronic kidney disease
  Prof M Tomaszewski, Prof A Woolf
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is one of the most common complex disorders. The prevalence of CKD is on the rise in all populations around the globe and both the clinical and economic pressures of CKD on the healthcare systems increase exponentially.
  Development of a three dimensional in vitro model of the human cornea to dissect the inflammatory events associated with sight-threatening ocular pathogens
  Dr C Dobson, Dr C Maldonado-Codina, Prof P Morgan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of microbes at the corneal surface may trigger low grade discomfort through to acute eye infection and permanent loss of vision.
  Tackling neurovascular dysfunction in dementia: a cell biology and biomaterials approach
  Prof N Hooper, Dr M Domingos, Dr T Wang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurovascular dysfunction is a central process in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In the brain, vascular and neuronal structures are tightly integrated forming the multicellular neurovascular unit comprising endothelial cells, pericytes, astrocytes, microglia and neurons.
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2020/21

Funding Type

PhD Type

The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
  EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWANO)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Established in 2013 with EPSRC funding and now supported by the University of Manchester and industry, Graphene NOWNANO CDT offers PhD training in science, technology and applications of the fast-growing family of two-dimensional materials.
  Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley, Dr C Whitfield
Application Deadline: 9 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic disorder that affects the production and clearance of mucus from various organs in the body. In the lungs this causes blockage and thickening of airways, leading to lung damage and early death from respiratory failure.
