  Photochemical synthesis of new drug-like scaffolds
  Dr C Smith, Dr A T Russell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Our laboratory is interested in the application of enabling technologies, such as continuous flow[1] and photochemistry,[2] for the synthesis of useful functional molecules such as drugs, agrochemicals and materials.
  Studying phase transitions by computer simulation techniques
  Dr L Bartok-Partay
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer simulation on the atomistic level became a powerful tool in modern chemistry in the past decades. Computational techniques are widely used to augment experiments and make initial predictions, thus saving time and money by reducing the amount of experimental work.
  “Operando” Characterisation of oxide-supported bimetallic Pd/Pt Nanocatalysts
  Dr G Held
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"“Operando” studies of catalyst surfaces under reaction conditions have emerged recently as a very valuable tool for improving catalysts for energy applications and exhaust purification.
  Computational design of metal-organic framework photocatalysts for solar fuel synthesis
  Dr R Grau-Crespo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are porous crystalline materials consisting of metal atoms or clusters connected by organic linkers.
  Computational modelling of intrinsically disordered proteins
  Dr D Nutt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Not all proteins fold into well-defined structures. These intrinsically-disordered proteins (IDPs) perform a wide variety of roles and functions within living organisms, for which their disorder is key, from binding to biomineral surfaces for controlling growth and morphology, to protecting plants against drought.
  Electronic Structures of Substituted Osmanaphthalynes and Related Metallacycles in Donor-Bridge-Acceptor Systems
  Prof F Hartl
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chemistry of transition metal-containing aromatics has attracted considerable attention both experimentally and theoretically.
  Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery
  Prof A.V. Powell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an opportunity to pursue a PhD in solid-state materials chemistry. The project will involve the synthesis of novel nano-scale materials for applications in thermoelectric energy harvesting.
  Nanostructured materials for energy applications and sensing.
  Dr J Elliott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed research area concerns the fabrication and study of the behaviour of mesoporous electrodes. The main focus of the project will be to undertake the control of surface macro-morphology and nanostructure and to investigate how these properties influence surface activity and electrode performance.
  Polymers capable of Self-Repair
  Prof W C Hayes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A synthetic-focussed project, this will target the generation and materials assessment of novel polymers that are capable of either autonomous or stimuli-responsive repair in order to recover the mechanical characteristics of the pristine material.
  Unusual properties of New Inorganic Framework Materials
  Dr A Chippindale
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We have a vacancy for a PhD student to synthesise and characterize new materials with open-framework structures, such metal phosphates, transition-metal cyanides or metal-organic compounds.
  Determining the susceptibility of nucleic acids to damage as a function of structure
  Dr J Hall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is to examine the relationship between the structure of nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) and their susceptibility to damage.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebites represent a major neglected tropical disease affecting several million people worldwide and resulting in as many as 150000 deaths each year.
  The definition of an Architect. Professional identity in a changing world and the role of the architect in the future
  Prof F B Samuel, Prof L Farrelly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

What it means to be an architect is highly contested.
  Housing developer’s use of demonstration projects to trial and roll out off-site production
  Dr L Schweber, Prof M Sexton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In many countries and firms, the promotion of green building has started with demonstration projects. The aim of these projects is to provide a niche where firms and businesses can develop new ways of working, free from regular commercial constraints.
  Physical activity, energy expenditures, and time use in agriculture and rural livelihood
  Dr G Zanello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The limited uptake of agricultural innovations with proven productivity-enhancing potential and the translation of productivity increases into improvements in nutrition are two major development challenges facing Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs).
  Mine site restoration and ecosystem development
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will include various aspect of minesite rehabilitation including early development of terrestrial ecosystems and the nutritional constraints to ecosystem development (plants and soil biota) using a space-for-time substiution appraoch.
  The nature of mycorrhizal symbioses
  Prof M Tibbett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will build on recent work highlighting the changing view of the nature of the relationship between plant and fungus in the (near) ubiquitous symbiosis.
  University of Reading, PhD Opportunities

Funding Type

PhD Type

Each year, the University of Reading awards over £8 million of funding in research studentships to home/EU and international students and these great opportunities are open to high quality students for funded research in a wide range of subject areas.
