3D Spectral Images of Chemical Microstructure: Workflows, Interpretation, Visualization and Impact

  Research Group: School of Computing
The project will create a workflow to interpret 3D spectral images from electron microscopes where each image pixel has an associated EELS (Electron Electron Loss Spectroscopy in a transmission electron microscope(TEM)) or EDX (Energy Dispersive X-Ray in a TEM or scanning electron microscope (SEM)) spectrum giving chemical information.

Developing the next generation of biomaterial structural characterisation

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Folded protein hydrogels are an exciting new class of biomaterial which possess specific biological functionality, enabling dynamic changes in mechanical and structural properties in response to biomolecular cues. Read more

Vibrational and THz spectroscopy for optimising organic co-crystal semiconductors

  Research Group: School of Chemical and Process Engineering
Organic molecular crystals are used in semiconductor applications from electronics to light emitting diodes and solar cells and continue to inspire discoveries of new chemistry and physics. Read more

Controlling fission and fusion shape transitions in artificial cells with self-assembled nanoparticles

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
A fundamental structural characteristic of biological matter is the compartmentalisation of its chemistry by membranes, separating distinct functional organelles within a cell or interfacing the cell with its external environment. Read more

Exploring 2D molecular arrays as a route to controlling the atomic structure of electrocatalytic carbon nanoelectrodes

  Research Group: School of Chemistry
This inter-disciplinary project, based across the Schools of Chemistry and Physics at the University of Leeds, will develop new nanostructured assemblies on surfaces to be exploited in electrocatalysis and sensing applications. Read more

Optics-based distributed magnetic field and temperature sensor

A fully funded PhD scholarship is available for researching and developing composites and devices for fibre-optic based magnetic field and temperature sensors at the Robinson Research Institute [1], Victoria University of Wellington, Lower Hutt, New Zealand. Read more

PhD in Materials Characterisation for Sustainable Catalysis

  Research Group: Sustainable Industrial Engineering
Catalysis is a key technology for multiple industries and will play a critical role to achieve net zero ambitions. In 2020 bp set a goal of being a net zero company by 2050 or sooner and helping the world get to net zero. Read more

Smart Polymer nAnoCompositEs (SPACE)

  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
Polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) are hybrid materials consisting of a polymeric matrix incorporating nanoparticles (NPs). They are paving the path for next-generation smart nanomaterials in energy efficiency and storage, environmental remediation, textile, food and biomedical applications. Read more

Cellular logistics: Biological physics of selective protein and gene transport across the nuclear envelope

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
The coordinated transport of proteins and nucleic acids between the nucleus and the cytosol is vital for proper gene expression and cell function, and hijacked by viruses to propagate. Read more

Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.
