  Design, synthesis and evaluation of protease-activated anti-cancer prodrugs
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Prof P Loadman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of endoproteases that are overexpressed in tumours and play crucial roles in many tumourigenic processes, not least tumour invasion and angiogenesis.
  Design, synthesis and evaluation of novel polysialyltransferase inhibitors as anti- metastatic agents
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr R Falconer, Dr S Shnyder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysialic acid plays an essential role in neuronal development, but by adulthood is absent from the human body. Its biosynthesis is regulated by two polysialyltransferases (polySTs).
  Polysialyltransferases as a target in metastatic cancer

  Role of cellular exosomes in the onset of immune mediated tissue damage
  Dr F Del Galdo
Application Deadline: 5 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Scleroderma (SSc) is an interferon-mediated chronic autoimmune diseases with the highest morbidity and mortality among rheumatologic conditions.
  Fault Geomorphology and Seismic Hazard of Major Fault Zones
  Dr J Elliott, Dr L Gregory, Prof T Wright
Application Deadline: 28 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project description. This exciting project aims to improve our understanding of relative crustal faulting activity and better assess earthquake hazard on a number of major fault zones by combining high resolution satellite optical imagery and DEMs with deterministic seismic hazard and risk models.
  Identifying and working with people with co-existent physical and cognitive frailty
  Prof G Mountain, Dr C Quinn
Application Deadline: 17 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you interested in undertaking PhD study into dementia and frailty? An exciting opportunity exists to work on this priority topic for ageing research, policy and practice within a dynamic research environment.
  Design and control of magnetic soft robot for surgical applications
  Prof P Valdastri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This vacancy is created by a major European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator grant awarded to the STORM Lab, which aims to define a new generation of surgical tentacle-like robots that can be magnetically guided within the human body by magnetic fields.
  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.
  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.
  Addressing barriers to maternity care for migrant women
  Research Group: Health Inequalities
  Dr M Cooper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is well documented that migrant women experience barriers accessing maternity care. These include language barriers, cultural differences, lack of understanding of services and also financial barriers.
