  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Quantum dot superstructures
  Dr K Critchley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Wet chemical synthesis methods can produce semiconductors that consist of 100s to 10,000s of atoms – known as colloidal quantum dots.
  Teaching a machine to move atoms
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr A Sweetman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is now routine in world leading laboratories to perform experiments where single atoms can be placed with atomic precision. These experiments are performed using scanning probe microscopes, and allow us to study the electrical and chemical properties of matter with sub-molecular, and even “sub-atomic” precision.
