  Development of microfluidic devices to support actinide analysis
  Dr C Sharrad, Dr B Treves Brown
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The primary objective of the project is to develop methods for the analysis of actinide materials using minimal sample amounts and generating the lowest volumes of radioactive wastes requiring costly treatment and disposal processes.
  Processing and characterisation of ceramics for nuclear applications
  Research Group: Coatings and Ceramics
  Prof P Xiao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The successful candidate(s) will join the ceramic coating group in School of Materials, University of Manchester to develop ceramics for nuclear applications.
  (MRC DTP) Modelling lung deposition of inhaled particles in cystic fibrosis
  Prof O Jensen, Dr A Horsley
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

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.
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  (MRC DTP) Improved identification of brain tumour extent on advanced multi-modality medical images
  Dr R Hinz, Dr David Coope, Dr M Asselin, Prof A Jackson
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gliomas are primary brain tumours which span a spectrum from comparatively slow growing tumours in young adults to highly aggressive tumours presenting later in life.
  (MRC DTP) Quantifying change in mammographic appearance using Artificial Intelligence
  Dr S Astley, Dr Yit Lim, Dr S Howell, Dr M Fergie
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, with over 54,000 new cases diagnosed each year in the UK.
  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.
  (MRC DTP) Development of a risk model towards personalised screening for radiation-induced breast cancer using the national Breast Screening After Radiotherapy Dataset (BARD)
  Dr M Aznar, Dr S Howell, Dr S Astley, Prof J Radford
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiotherapy uses radiation (x-rays, protons) to kill cancer cells, and is an important part of cancer treatment for many patients.
  (MRC DTP) Determining potential targets to enhance radiotherapy treatment of cancer by activating the immune system
  Dr M Travis, Prof K Williams, Prof T Illidge
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer causes more than one in four of all deaths in the UK, and despite recent advances in therapy, much more still needs to be done to identify new treatments, and to make existing treatments more effective.
  Decreasing the side effects from breast cancer treatment
  Dr M Aznar, Prof M Van Herk, Prof C West
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiotherapy is an important part of a successful treatment for many women with breast cancer, but it can lead to side effects. Women often complain about skin burns, a stiff shoulder or a swollen arm.
