  The outcomes of innovative radiotherapy regimes for the treatment of cancer under the RadNet programme
  Prof G Royle, Dr C Allemani, Prof M Coleman
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiotherapy is a key treatment modality for at least half of all cancers. Delivering a curative radiation dose to the cancer can be complicated by imprecise targeting of the tumour, radiation resistance, clonal heterogeneity or other reasons.
  PhD Studentship: Portable hybrid gamma-optical camera for quantitative 3D precision imaging in cancer diagnosis
  Dr S Bugby, Dr G Cosma
Application Deadline: 3 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. SB/PH/2020. Start date of studentship. 1 October 2020. Closing date of advert. 3 April 2020.
  Ubiquitin signalling in the pathogenesis and therapy of glioblastoma
  Dr V D'Angiolella, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 3 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

THE PROJECT. Glioblastoma, the most common primary brain tumor in adults accounts for more than 4000 deaths every year in the UK.
  Cosmic-Ray Muons in Different Applications
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cosmic-ray muons are known to be useful in applications beyond particle astrophysics. They have helped with mapping structure of volcanoes and with finding voids in various geological structures.
  Dark Matter Search with the LZ Experiment
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

LUX-ZEPLIN (LZ) is a project to build and operate a high-sensitivity dark matter experiment in the deep mine at SURF (South Dakota, USA) able to probe most of the WIMP parameter space region free from neutrino background.
  Neutrino Oscillation Study and Proton Decay Search with DUNE
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr V Kudryavtsev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

DUNE is a large international project to design, construct and operate a multi-kiloton scale liquid argon detector for neutrino physics, neutrino astrophysics and a search for physics beyond the Standard Model.
  Combining precision radiotherapy with immunotherapy in head and neck cancer
  Dr S Terry, Dr T Kalber
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is the sixth most common cancer world-wide. Patients with locally advanced HNSCC are usually treated with (i) radiotherapy with or without concurrent chemotherapy or with (ii) surgery with or without radio/chemotherapy.
  Effects of Radiotherapy on CAR T-cell function over time
  Dr M Pule, Dr C Roddie
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. Chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) graft the specificity of an antibody onto the dynamic and persisting effector function of a T-cell.
  Enhancing radiotherapy sensitisation and improving cancer control by modulating tumour microenvironment derived angiocrine signalling
  Prof K Hodivala-Dilke, Dr S Boulton
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Radiotherapy resistance constitutes a major limitation for effective cancer treatment, emphasising the need to understand the mechanism(s) of radiotherapy sensitisation.
  Mechanistic Insights into Astrocytes Dedifferentiation during Glioblastoma Tumorigenesis using Executable Modelling
  Prof J Fisher, Prof S Parrinello
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is both the most common and the most lethal adult brain tumour. GBM malignancy and recurrence are driven by a subpopulation of stem-like cells known as glioma stem cells (GSC).
  Resolving the impact of genomic instability and error prone DNA repair on radiation resistance through phylogenetic analysis in NSCLC
  Dr N McGranahan, Dr C Hiley
Application Deadline: 16 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death in the UK. In patients with stage III non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) chemoradiotherapy is the most common treatment.
  Coherent and incoherent attosecond x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions
  Prof D Jaroszynski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhDs are offered in an exciting and challenging research area, with a vibrant group of experimentalists and theoreticians developing and applying ultra-compact accelerators and x-ray sources based on laser-plasma interactions.
  Hybrid beam-driven plasma wakefield acceleration for highest brightness beams
  Prof B Hidding
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are on a quest towards ultracompact electron accelerators and 5th generation light sources -- transformative ultrafast microscopes for the 21st century.
  Theoretical and numerical studies of relativistic laser-plasma interaction and applications
  Prof Z Sheng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

You might be a potential candidate if you are interested in using high performance computing to discover novel physics or solve key problems in high intensity laser-matter interactions and their applications, particularly in advanced particle accelerators and radiation sources (from THz to X-rays).
