  Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr R Richter
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
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.
  Scaffolds for supporting epithelial cells
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Prof S Rimmer, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Tissue engineering requires the availability of polymer materials that can support cells and the development of tissues. Many synthetic materials are tough, easily fabricated and non-toxic.
  Oxidic Nanomaterials for High Density Storage in Li-ion Batteries
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
The oxides of a number of materials are very appealing candidates as substitutes for conventional anodes in lithium-ion batteries because of their high theoretical capacity, high electric conductivity low potential of lithium ion intercalation, as well as superior electron mobilities, with one such material, SnO2 being particularly appealing.
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  Core and core-shell nanomaterials synthesis for Optoelectronics
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round
Nanoscience and technology, which involves the manipulation of materials using the property of size to bring about specific desired changes in the electronic structure of materials, has proven to be a powerful additional tool permitting the materials scientist to effect greater control over the charge transport properties in materials.
  Intelligent catalysts for biodiesel production
  Research Group: Advanced Materials Engineering
  Dr P Pimenidou
Applications accepted all year round
Heterogeneous catalysis for the production of biodiesel can benefit from nanotechnology since milder operating conditions can be applied compared to bulk catalysts.
  Phenolic compounds removal from the petroleum industries wastewater
  Research Group: Advanced Materials Engineering
  Dr P Pimenidou
Applications accepted all year round
Phenolic compounds (phenols) found in the wastewater of various industries (oil refineries, petrochemicals, ceramic, steel, coal conversion, phenolic, pharmaceuticals) can result in significant health and environmental problems.
  Deformation of multiphase materials: Experiments and numerical modelling
  Dr S Piazolo
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This exciting project aims to shed light on the long standing problem of how multiphase materials behave during deformation and how the deformation history influences material behaviour during subsequent deformation.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: The in situ 3D molecular structure of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology
  Dr R Frank, Prof S E Radford, Dr E W Hewitt
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Synapses are the microprocessors of the mind that encode and store memories. In Alzheimer’s disease (AD), synapses are damaged by the constituents of abnormal beta-amyloid plaques that accumulate in the brain.
  Understanding the photoprotective mechanism: correlation of the structure and optical properties of single Light Harvesting proteins
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P.G. Adams, Dr S Muench
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Light-Harvesting Complex II (LHCII) is a chlorophyll-protein complex found in plant chloroplasts, estimated to be the most abundant membrane protein on Earth.
