  The chemistry and biophysics of phosphoryl transfer enzymes
  Prof J Waltho, Dr A Almond
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most remarkable features of the chemistry of living organisms is the evolutionary utilisation of phosphate esters to provide biopolymers that encode genetic information, deliver temporal protein regulation, generate and distribute free energy throughout the cell, and to provide a ubiquitous handle for metabolic intermediates.
  Modelling photosynthetic water oxidation
  Dr P O'Malley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims use molecular modelling methods and spectroscopy to understand how the protein environment of electron transfer cofactors in photosysnthesis and in particular how the water oxidising complex, facilitates electron transfer and also helps stabilise these radical species to maintain a charge separated state.

  Molecular Transport through Angstrom scale confinement
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Housed within the world-leading condensed matter physics group and National Graphene Institute, our group focuses on 2D materials and angstrom scale capillaries.
  A New Paradigm in “On Demand” Manufacture: Radiation Chemical Functionalisation During 3D Printing
  Dr A Baidak, Prof F Currell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The automation of modern economy has an immense impact on our everyday life; the development and implementation of machine learning and artificial intelligence will bring about further socio-economic changes of great significance and scale.
  Characterising surface properties of protein biopharmaceutical molecules
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr J Warwicker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein biologicals have great potential for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases. However, aggregation and instability are inherent issues with all protein pharmaceuticals, which is a problem that can limit their utility and developability.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  Odd metal clusterings and peculiar phases in nuclear extraction processes
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At the end of a nuclear reaction, many countries seek to recover unspent uranium and plutonium from the spent fuel. The most common way to do this is to dissolve the spent fuel in nitric acid, add some oil and also a special ligand.
  Design of advanced cyclic adsorption processes for complex gas separations
  Dr L Joss
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas adsorption is one of the key physical processes that underlie the numerous industrial uses of porous solids. These include separation processes (adsorption and membrane processes), catalytic reactions, energy storage, and gas recovery from unconventional plays.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
  High-performance smart ceramic coatings on light alloys
  Dr B Mingo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The vision set out by the UK government is that by the year 2050 almost every car and van should be Ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV).
  Developing NMR methods to characterise water transport through graphene-based membranes
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene oxide membranes (GOMs) have shown significant promise as filtration devices since they are impermeable to many substances but not to water.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  EPSRC CDT in Nuclear Energy - GREEN (Growing skills for Reliable Economic Energy from Nuclear)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
