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.

Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations. Read more

Colloidal Semiconductors for Photonics

Photonics is the technology of light. materials, devices and systems that create, transport, control and detect photons in order to realise advanced functions. Read more

Photonic Technologies for Ultrafast Neuromorphic Information Processing

The human brain is exceptional at performing fast and efficiently, highly complex tasks such as recognising patterns or faces. Hence, neuromorphic (brain-like) computing approaches are the subject of increasing research interest for use in Artificial Intelligence (AI) platforms. Read more

Visible light photonic circuits for quantum technology applications

Quantum states of light such as single photons and entangled photon pairs play a fundamental role in many quantum technology applications, ranging from quantum imaging and metrology to quantum information processing. Read more

Multiscale molecular simulation approaches to understanding polymer adsorption at surfaces

A PhD studentship is available from 1st October 2021 to develop new coarse-grained simulation models to understand the deposition of polymers at model soft matter surfaces, and to allow for predictions of interfacial properties such as interfacial tension and surface charge. Read more

Research assistant (PhD student) needed - Department of Physics - Institute for Experimental Physics

Job description. Participation in a research project in a group focusing on “EPR Spectroscopy in Photovoltaics”, Active participation in a bilateral German/French network project on the development of magnetic resonance techniques for studying energy materials,. Read more

PhD project: Low-cost, InteGrated Holographic Technology for Specialized, Highly Adapted, Photopolymer beam shaping Elements (LIGHTSHAPE)

Project Description (max 300 words). Diffractive Optical Elements (DOEs) are flexible polymer optical components that efficiently focus and redirect light using diffraction rather than refraction and are therefore thin, lightweight and versatile. Read more
