  Comparative biomechanics of insect flight
  Dr S.M. Walker, Dr G N Askew
Application Deadline: 28 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a PhD student to join the Comparative Biomechanics group in the Faculty of Biological Sciences at University of Leeds.
  Mathematical Virology: A New Mathematical Approach to Viral Evolution Grounded in Experiment
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling of natural phenomena has the potential to be predictive but requires direct verification by experiment. Such models can then be very powerful indicators of our understanding and they permit in silico simulations of situations that are difficult to test experimentally.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Predicting outcome from cancer treatment using clinical and imaging data in multiple countries
  Dr A Appelt, Prof D Sebag-Montefiore
Application Deadline: 2 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Prediction models for cancer outcomes can provide direct clinical value and are becoming increasingly important to individualise treatment.
  CFD Modelling of Metal Powder Production
  Dr A Mullis
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advent of 3D printing with metal powders has opened up a new era in manufacturing technology and is driving demand for fine, highly spherical metal powders.
  Developing AI approach to autonomous dismantling/packaging of nuclear installations
  Dr X Jia, Prof Shane Xie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At some stage in the decommissioning of nuclear installations (e.g., reactors and gloveboxes), it is inevitable that large metal structures (e.g., reactor vessels, gloveboxes, structural components) need to be cut into smaller pieces to be packed in containers, for temporary storage or permanent disposal or simply for transportation.
  Reconfigurable Polymers via Supramolecular Self-Sorting
  Prof A J Wilson, Dr N Warren
Application Deadline: 19 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to mimic the ability of biological materials to force macromolecular reconfiguration using photo-switchable non-covalent self-sorting.
  Dynamic Control of Crystallization Processes using Microfluidic Systems
  Prof F Meldrum
Application Deadline: 1 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered as part of a €2.6M ERC Advanced Grant to Professor Fiona Meldrum “DYNAMIN – Dynamic Control of Mineralization”.
  Feedback-responsive protocells
  Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Feedback in chemical systems can give rise to clocks, bistable switches or oscillations; all of these features are employed by living cells in order to generate robust decisions and outputs while existing in a deafening background of thermodynamic noise.
  Metallosupramolecular assemblies and metal-organic frameworks
  Dr M Hardie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanometre-sized polyhedral or prismatic chemical architectures can self-assemble from combinations of transition metal cations and multifunctional ligands.
