Showing 1 to 10 of 12
  Understanding marine predator habitat use in the Mediterranean through eDNA
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr S Goodman, Dr E Valsecchi
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Overview. Understanding how animals use their habitats in relation to environmental and ecological factors is fundamental to basic ecological studies, evaluating potential exposure to impacts from human activities, and assessing species vulnerability to climate and ecosystem change.
  Species Conservation Evolutionary Algorithms for multi-objective optimisation and applications in Engineering
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr JP Li
Applications accepted all year round
This highly multidisciplinary PhD project will develop computational methods or optimisation frameworks to solve engineering optimisation problems.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Mining large international genetic datasets to identify new therapeutic targets in giant cell arteritis through innovative genetic methodology
  Prof A Morgan, Prof JH Barrett, Dr A Mälarstig
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is the commonest primary systemic vasculitis, occurring exclusively after 50yrs. Irreversible ischaemic complications, including blindness, occur in 19% of UK patients, despite prompt treatment.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Gene expression network analysis to identify candidate drivers of treatment resistance in glioblastoma multiforme
  Dr A Droop, Dr L Stead, Prof D R Westhead
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Glioblastoma (GBM) is an incurable brain cancer. Patients survive an average 14 months post-diagnosis, despite receiving surgery and intensive chemoradiation because 100% of tumours grow back.
  Predicting the next global geomagnetic reversal using machine learning
  Dr P Livermore, Dr C Davies
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Earth’s magnetic field, generated by turbulent convection in the liquid outer core, has reversed many times over its 3.5 billion-year history, at a present rate of about 2-3 times per million years (Stern, 2002) The last global reversal took place 780,000 years ago, leading to speculation that we are “overdue”.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding the genetics of melanoma by studying heritable risk factors
  Dr MM Iles, Prof T Bishop
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Background. Melanoma is the fifth most common cancer in the UK and its incidence has risen faster than any other common cancer - a five-fold increase since 1975.
  Warm climate, high seas. How did sea level change in Europe during the Last Interglacial?
  Dr N Barlow, Dr L Gregoire
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The big picture. Global sea-level rise is one of our greatest environmental challenges and is predicted to continue for hundreds of years, even if global greenhouse-gas emissions are stopped immediately (Clark et al., 2016).
  The role of natural aerosol in biosphere-atmosphere interactions and feedbacks
  Dr A Rap, Dr D Spracklen
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project will investigate the role of natural aerosol in vegetation-climate feedbacks, using state-of-the-art models to improve our understanding of biosphere-atmosphere interactions with important implications for future climate projections.
  Severe weather over Southeast Asia: fieldwork and modelling
  Dr C Birch, Dr J Marsham, Dr R Neely
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The Maritime Continent in Southeast Asia is a key region in the global weather and climate system. Its complex island geography and position among the warmest oceans on Earth lead to a multi-scale concoction of severe atmospheric convective and dynamical weather systems.
  The Red Queen versus the Court Jester: do biotic or extrinsic factors shape the reptilian tree of life?
  Dr G Lloyd, Prof P Wignall
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Living reptiles – the group that includes turtles, lizards, snakes, crocodiles, and birds – represent a highly successful radiation of terrestrial vertebrates containing roughly four times as many species as their sister clade, the mammals.
