  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.
  PhD studentship in Chemical Looping Technologies for a Low-Carbon Energy Future

Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
  Joint PhD with University of Bayreuth: Control of Excitons in Single Polymer Chains
  Assoc Prof T Smith
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The distribution of conjugation lengths with a conjugate polymer chain gives rise to a distribution of absorption and emission wavelengths.
  Joint PhD with University of Bayreuth: Exciton Logic Gates
  Prof P Mulvaney
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical circuitry remains a long-cherished goal in the fields of high-density data storage and ultrafast communications. Logic gates can be used to modulate energy flow for energy-harvesting applications or monitored in photo-mathematical operations (optical logic).
  Joint PhD with University of Bayreuth: Light Pulse Control of Excitons
  Assoc Prof T Smith
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Using timed sequences of ultrashort laser pulses, it should be possible to control the fate of an exciton. We aim to investigate multichromophoric molecules the comprise groups that absorb (and perhaps emit) in specific regions of the spectrum, that we can modulate with timed pulses of different wavelengths.
  Joint PhD with University of Bayreuth: Synthesis and Manipulation of Semiconducting Block Copolymers for Organic Photovoltaic active Layers
