  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.
  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.
  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.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
  A digital manufacturing process for creating 3D fluidic channels
  Dr E Saleh
Application Deadline: 9 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to fabricate 3D micro robots digitally from a CAD model enables enormous opportunities to the development of robotic systems.
  Computer Simulations of Biological Macromolecules
  Dr SA Harris, Dr D Read
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
  The physics of glass - fundamental mechanisms and novel applications
  Dr J Mattsson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The formation and behavior of glassy disordered non-equilibrium solids is one of the deepest unsolved fundamental questions in physics.
