  Molecular Cookie Cutters: Cutting Edge Drug Discovery using G-Protein Coupled Receptors
  Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane proteins represent 30-40% of the cellular proteome and carry out a wide range of fundamental biological process. These include sensing the outside world, helping maintain cellular structure and homeostasis.
  Computational and Polymer Sciences to Engineer Microbial Physiology
  Dr S Jabbari, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling and statistical inference are key tools in understanding the life sciences. In this project, we will develop differential equation models and apply statistical inference techniques to understand how polymers can be engineered to be of practical use in microbiology.
  Engineering Microbial Physiology through Polymer and Computational Sciences
  Research Group: Materials Chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr S Jabbari
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently, there has been an increasing use of polymers to interface with bacteria and other microorganisms, either to treat microbial infections, to prevent and control biofilm formation, or as a platform to grow and maintain microbial cultures for biotechnology.
  Application of nanomaterials in precision agriculture to optimise nitrogen use efficiency and increase global food security
  Dr I Lynch, Dr S Ullah, Dr P Zhang, Mr A Witteveen
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global agriculture sector is facing a wide spectrum of challenges such as stagnation in crop yields, notoriously low nutrient use efficiency (NUE), poor soil health, shrinking arable land and water availability etc.
  Atomistic simulations of nanoparticle reactivity for safe-by-design applications
  Dr E Valsami-Jones, Dr I Lynch
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Nanotechnology is a key enabling technology with the potential to deliver a wide range of technological breakthroughs through the production of novel and emerging engineered and manufactured nanomaterials (NMs) whose unique features serve numerous applications across all EU priority sectors.
  Nanoscale boundaries: understanding size effects on the reactivity of ultra-small particles
  Dr E Valsami-Jones, Dr Z Li
Application Deadline: 10 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Nanoscience and nanotechnology explore the special properties and processes that occur in the nanoscale. the size range conventionally considered as 1-100nm.
  Shape Transforming Active Microfluidics
  Dr T Montenegro-Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The student will be joining part of a large interdisciplinary team working on the Leverhulme Trust funded project "Shape-Transforming Active Microfluidics", led by Dr Tom Montenegro-Johnson, which will comprise around 4 PhD students, 4 Postdoctoral Research Associates, and an Artist in Residence.
