  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Revealing dynamic and elusive early-mitotic events using state-of-the-art live-cell light sheet imaging
  Dr T Tanaka, Dr M MacDonald
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Defining novel regulators of cancer cell invasion
  Prof M Parsons, Prof J Marshall
Application Deadline: 29 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cytoskeleton of cells is known to be essential to the behaviour of cancer cells and their ability to invade throughout the body.
  Ultra-high resolution microendoscopy
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microendoscopy is a remarkable imaging technique that exploits single optical fibres with thousands of light guiding cores to image structures in confined regions of the body with ~ micron level resolution.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating Cognitive Correlates of Circuit dysfunctions in Autism Spectrum Disorders
  Dr A Banerjee, Prof C Petkov
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of early postnatal developmental disabilities with executive dysfunction as a key co-morbid feature.
  Tapered microstructure fibre and its application for bio-chemical sensing (SF19/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu, Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently there is an increasing demand for human health monitoring due to the development of the society. This requires to monitor a larger number of analytes, and hence it is crucial to develop an efficient and cost effective detection method.
  Simulation of quantum transport with cold atoms
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum mechanics is believed to play a role in certain natural processes such as light harvesting. For example certain bacteria are capable of capturing the energy of an incoming photon and transporting the resulting excitation to the reaction centre with great efficiency.
  Computational Biomedical Imaging: building a better light-sheet microscope
  Dr J Taylor, Prof A Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available in the Imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University, researching computational imaging for light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM).
  Biophysics of light-induced motility in microalgae
  Dr M Polin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
