  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Computational modelling of skin absorption of chemicals
  Dr T Chen, Prof G Lian
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin is a complex organ of human body with multilayer tissues and multiple components such as sweat ducts and glands, sebaceous glands and hair follicles.
  Molecular mechanisms of herpesviral infection
  Dr A Golovanov
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Herpes viruses are known to cause a wide range of human diseases, ranging from simple cold sores to cancer, Kaposi Sarcoma. Kaposi Sarcoma, for example, is a type of cancer which affects immunocompromised patients and is endemic in Africa, where it is linked with the spread of HIV infection and AIDS.
  New Point of Care Diagnostic Technology for Cancer Biomarkers
  Prof P Mendes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is now overwhelming evidence that glycosylation, the process by which sugars are attached to proteins, changes during the development and progression of various malignancies.
  Informing Design of Novel Materials for Drug Pollution Remediation through Molecular Modelling
  Dr V Erastova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. In this project, molecular modeling will be used to bring atomic-level understanding to the retention and release of contaminants by soils.
  Application of artificial intelligence to analysis of chemical and structural data
  Dr S Chong, Dr L Chen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Please note that this project will remain open until a successful candidate is found. The analysis of structural characterisation data is a time-consuming stage in the development of new functional materials.
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to investigate polyphenol binding to lipid membrane surfaces with a view to understanding how polyphenol structure and aggregation within the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) affects the bioavailability of these nutraceuticals.
  Intra-intestinal inactivation of residual antibiotics as a promising approach to fight against antimicrobial resistance.
  Dr M Khoder
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a grave threat to public health causing 50000 deaths per year in the US and Europe alone. With virtually no new antibiotic classes created in the new millennia, identifying novel strategies to preserve and extend the useful life of existing antibiotics has therefore become a priority.
  Super resolution imaging of DNA damage and repair - Interdisciplinary Single Molecule Biology PhD
  Dr D Whelan
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. A fully funded La Trobe University PhD scholarship is available in the Whelan Single-Molecule Biophysics group, to be undertaken at the Bendigo campus within the La Trobe Institute for Molecular Science (LIMS).
  (BBSRC DTP) Selective knockdown of proinflammatory microRNAs to tackle neurodegeneration and cognitive decline: myth or reality?
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof J Neill, Dr F Roncaroli, Prof D Clarke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neurodegenerative diseases (e.g. multiple and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) have tremendous psychological, clinical and social impact, which becomes increasingly challenging in the global trend of population aging.
  High-confidence modelling of particle resuspension
  Prof J P Reid, Dr J Van Duijneveldt, Dr W Briscoe, Prof D Murnane
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

  Replication and modelling of infectious respiratory droplets in humans and animals
  Dr D Hill, Prof T Tetley, Prof J P Reid
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a 4 year PhD studentship starting in Autumn 2020 as part of the EPSRC CDT in Aerosol Science. https://www.aerosol-cdt.ac.uk/how-to-apply/.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future (Sensor CDT), at the University of Cambridge, is looking for aspirational, enthusiastic and open-minded students to join its vibrant environment.
  Environmental data science: a new machine learning approach to study the influence of climate change on extreme weather (NOWACKPU20SCIEC)
  Dr P Nowack, Prof M Joshi
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change is one of the most pressing societal and scientific challenges. Improving our understanding of climate change, in particular concerning its impacts on the country- or even city-scale, is therefore a global research priority.
  Photochemical Processing of Atmospheric Aerosol
  Prof D Heard
Application Deadline: 3 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric aerosol particles modify climate by directly scattering or absorbing sunlight and by serving as the seeds for cloud droplets and thereby indirectly scattering sunlight.
  PhD Studentship – Predicting Skin Interactions and Permeation of Chemical Agents using Computational Modelling
  Prof J W Essex
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-Supervisor. Dr Thomas J Piggot (Dstl). The skin is the outermost barrier for most of the human body. The majority of chemicals that come into contact with the body will initially do so through an interaction with the skin.
