  Genomic basis of extra-group paternity in the cooperatively breeding Seychelles warbler
  Dr H L Dugdale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Indirect genetic benefits are hypothesised to drive the evolution of extra-group paternity (EGP), yet its genomic basis is unknown.
  Marine ecology and spatial planning for changing coral reef ecosystems
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr M Beger
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is an open call for international or self-funded students who wish to develop their skill base in marine conservation science.
  Rational design and production of glyco-peptidic inhibitors of pathogens’ adhesion to host cells.
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E Paci, Prof W B Turnbull
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of protein molecules to stick to cells is crucial for life and disease. The project is based on a novel concept to design adhesive molecules based on multivalence and entropic stabilisation.
  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.
  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.
  SILVER: Improving nuclear decommissioning project performance through reference class forecasting
  Prof N Brookes, Dr G Locatelli
Application Deadline: 31 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

What is the research area?. This project will focus on ‘reference class forecasting’ which is a technique that has been formulated to improve the estimation of time and cost of in large capital projects, like the nuclear decommissioning projects undertaken at Sellafield.
  Bayesian Deep Atlases for Cardiac Motion Abnormality Detection from Imaging and Metadata
  Dr A Gooya
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) cause more than 26% of all deaths in the UK, costing over £15 billion each year. There is good evidence that a large array of CVDs can be diagnosed by an assessment of heart motion abnormalities.
  Deep learning for early detection of cancer recurrence in patients with glioblastoma through imaging
  Dr A Gooya
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Brain tumours are cancer of unmet need and are the most common cause of cancer death in under the 40s. Glioblastoma is the most common primary adult brain tumour and carries one of the worst prognoses amongst human cancers, with a median survival time of about 15 months.
  Deep learning for outcome prediction after pelvic radiotherapy
  Dr A Gooya
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Modern radiotherapy is highly optimized with respect to individual patient anatomy, utilising 3D anatomical imaging for treatment planning and guidance.
  Moduli spaces of algebraic curves and mathematical physics
  Dr A Buryak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The moduli space of curves is the space of all complex structures on a given compact two-dimensional surface. This is a complicated topological space with a very rich and interesting geometry.
