  Biosensor for catching a cereal killer
  Dr R Gupta, Dr G Kettles
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Wheat is a staple food for about two billion people in the world.
  De novo design of a new generation of catalysts based on rhodium coiled coils
  Dr A Peacock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will generate a new class of miniature metalloenzymes based on rhodium coiled coils, which bring together the power of enzymatic catalysis, as provided by the coiled coil miniature protein-type scaffold, and small molecule rhodium catalysis.
  Investigating Potential Applications of Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors
  Prof J Tucker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors.
  Long Period Hydrogel Grating on Optical Fibre for Biosensing
  Dr R Gupta, Dr S. Korposh
Application Deadline: 30 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a joint project will bring together the expertise of Dr Ruchi Gupta (University of Birmingham, UoB) and Dr Serhiy Korposh (University of Nottingham, UoN) in hydrogel gratings [1] and optical fibres [2] to deliver a sensing platform.
  Mechanically interlocked molecules for chiral emissive materials
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A major challenge for the next generation of organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) is to enhance their efficiency and functionality by using electronic materials that emit circularly polarized light.
  Near-infra red emitting surfaces for new diagnostic platforms
  Prof Z Pikramenou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will develop new surfaces for diagnostic devices based on luminescence signal detection. A new approach will be used to make optically surfaces responsive surfaces using near infrared emitting metal complexes.
  Optical Interferometric Biosensor with Lab-on-Chip
  Dr R Gupta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to develop an interferometric biosensor integrated with microchip electrophoresis for potential applications in point-of-care diagnostics.
  Responsive Polymer Nanostructures - the Synthesis of Novel Responsive Polymers and their subsequent self-assembly
  Prof R O'Reilly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available from October 2018 in the group led by Professor Rachel O’Reilly studying the synthesis of novel responsive polymers and their subsequent self-assembly.
  Supramolecular assemblies for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar power provides a clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels and light harvesting has long been a source of renewable energy in Nature.
  Supramolecular sensors for imaging biological substrates
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of selective supramolecular sensors that undergo a macroscopic, detectable response upon binding a particular substrate is an intense area of interest.
