  Defined outcomes from chaotic directions – The influence of random nanoscale mechanical stress on cancer cell behaviour and drug resistance
  Dr M Zelzer, Dr A Piccinini
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We invite you to apply for an exciting opportunity for a fully funded PhD project at the interface of material science, engineering, cancer cell biology and mathematic modelling.
  A Comparative Study of Metallic Ions in the Atmospheres of Earth and Mars
  Prof J Plane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metals are injected into planetary atmospheres by the ablation of interplanetary dust particles. The major species (Fe, Mg and Na) exist as atoms and ions that are excellent tracers of dynamics and chemistry.
  A crystal engineering approach for novel Pickering formulations with controlled release properties
  Dr E Simone, Prof B Murray, Dr A Sarkar
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project aims at developing novel sustainable, biocompatible multiphase formulations (e.g., emulsions, foams) for the controlled release of active ingredients, applying a unique crystal engineering approach.
  Bio-inspired quantum-enhanced light harvesting (EPS2020/22)
  Dr E Gauger
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bio-inspired nanostructures are ideal candidates for quantum-engineered antennae. This project aims to identify ways of harnessing the interplay of quantum effects and dissipation to underpin next-generation technologies for light-harvesting.
  Unveiling the nanomechanical properties of the LINC complex proteins with single molecule resolution
  Prof S Garcia-Manyes
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mechanical forces are involved in many physiological processes. While most of the current work in mechanotransduction has focused on the function of focal adhesion proteins and the actin cytoskeleton, the mechanical role of intracellular and nuclear proteins remains rather elusive.
  Earth and Environmental Materials at Extreme Conditions: Recycling Light Elements through Earth
  Prof S Redfern
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully funded PhD studentship is available to start August 2020 to work with Simon Redfern on the mechanisms of light element incorporation into the minerals that make up Earth’s interior and other related materials.
  Development of novel refrigerants with low global warming potential (Advert Reference: SF19/EE/MCE/VICENTE)
  Dr YS Vicente, Prof K Mahkamov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In 2016, a global environmental agreement was introduced to phase out the production and consumption of hydrofluorocarbon refrigerants with global warming potential (GWP) by years 2036 to 2047, starting in 2019.
  Sensitec: Control of strain in magnetoresistive elements and its utilization
  Prof R Lehndorff
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Magnetoresistive (MR) sensors consist of magnetic thin films and micro- to nanostructures. It is important to understand the behaviour of magnetic domain walls in these structures, to be able to optimize the performance of the sensors.
  Group Contribution methods for non-Newtonian fluids
  Dr C Avendano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully funded 3.5 year PhD studentship in the School of Chemical Engineering & Analytical Science, University of Manchester.
  Novel ways to model complex flows
  Research Group: Multiscale Modelling
  Prof A Masters
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

While the equations governing the flow of Newtonian liquids like water or petrol are well-understood and excellent numerical methods exist to make accurate predictions of how such liquids will behave, the situation regarding complex fluids, such as blood, paint, shampoos, etc, is considerably less well understood.
  Two-dimensional layered materials as catalysts for fine chemical production
  Dr C D'Agostino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Catalysts are substances that can speed up chemical reactions and/or increase reaction selectivity without consuming themselves. Relative to non-catalytic processes, catalysed reactions perform through more energy efficient routes, in which reactants are able to be used more efficiently.
  Quantum memory effects in charge density wave transition metal chalcogenides
  Dr E Da Como, Prof S J Bending
Application Deadline: 9 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following PhD project supervised by Dr Enrico Da Como (https://people.bath.ac.uk/edc25/) and Prof Simon Bending (https://researchportal.bath.ac.uk/en/persons/simon-bending) in the Department of Physics.
  Microstructure in molecular framework alloys
  Dr H Yeung
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek to recruit a highly motivated and talented PhD student in the School of Chemistry at the University of Birmingham within the research group of Dr Hamish H-M Yeung.
  Synthesis and functional studies of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) derived from high oxidation state metal ions
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Nayak, Dr K Afarinkia
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Metal-organic frameworks or MOFs are a class of porous materials made of metal ions and rigid organic linkers which are known secondary building units or SBUs.
  Control of metabolite transport into durable protocells and nanoreactors
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P Beales, Prof L J C Jeuken, Prof A Goldman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protocells (or nanoreactors) are seen as a stepping-stone to understanding the origin of life and are being developed to generate novel cell-like biotechnologies.
