  Protein engineering enzymes for Industry
  Prof K A Watson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in key features of protein sequence - structure - function relationship, and how this information can be translated to health.
  Accelerating molecular phylogenetic inference using high performance computing.
  Dr A Meade
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Molecular phylogenetic inference, constructing evolutionary histories from molecular data, is an activity universal to all biological disciplines.
  Bioinformatics analyses of unknown metagenomics fraction
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"DNA sequencing technology now allows us to investigate not only the identity of organisms that are present in complex environments like soil, but also what these tiny microbes are doing.
  Bioinformatics studies of protein structures, functions and their interactions
  Dr L J McGuffin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The computational study of protein structures, functions and their interactions is fundamental to our understanding of disease.
  Multilevel selection on transposition rates in cancer
  Dr L J Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is an evolutionary process. Cells in a tumour vary due to mutation, and so over many generations they adapt in response to both intrinsic selective pressures (such as anoxia) and extrinsic selective pressures (such as chemotherapy).
  Next generation wearable healthcare sensors
  Prof S Sherratt, Prof W Harwin, Dr S Hadjiloucas, Prof F Hwang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to research and develop the next generation of Internet of Things (IoT) connected wearable sensor technologies for applications in healthcare and physiotherapy.
  Studying the mechanisms that cause heart failure
  Dr S Boateng
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack, and this presents a huge economic burden each year.
  SCENARIO - Soil microbial carbon metabolism for climate positive soils
  Dr E J Shaw, Dr M Redmile-Gordon, Dr R Griffiths
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Soils are essential to human well-being because they perform multiple functions that underpin the provision of ecosystem services that sustain life and regulate climate.
  Using digital technologies to understand the sensory experience of urban spaces
  Dr I.J Ewart, Dr Carolina Vasilikou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This research project aims to bring together digital technologies with ethnographic methods to examine how we can better map human perceptions and experiences of the built environment.
  Modelling the cardiovascular side-effects of anaesthesia
  Prof I Bojak
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Propofol is currently the anaesthetic most commonly employed in surgical operations. However, it has a variety of cardiovascular side-effects that are potentially life-threatening, in particular for fragile patients.
  The molecular mechanisms of thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr C.E. Hughes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A healthy cardiovascular system relies on the cells lining the blood vessels (endothelial cells) and heart cells (cardiomyocytes) to function normally.
  Microbiology and ecology of microbes in our rivers - their niche distribution and functional implications
  Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The distributions of microorganisms in our rivers and their interactions play an important role to environment and human health.
  Systems level analysis of platelet signalling
  Dr M J Fry, Prof J M Gibbins
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in how intracellular signal transduction networks bring about complex biological behaviours in cells. We do this by combining computational biology with wet laboratory experimentation.
  Multi-organ signalling and diseases. How maintaining skeletal muscle mass impacts the development of liver diseases
  Prof K Patel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Skeletal muscle has a number of roles in the human body beyond locomotion. It is has a vital role in controlling the metabolic activity the organism.
  Developing methods for the analysis of chromosome conformation data
  Dr T Thorne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chromosome conformational data allows us to investigate the three dimensional structure of the genome. This project will involve developing novel computational and statistical methods for the analysis of genomic contact data.
  Developing pipelines for the inference of gene regulatory networks
  Dr T Thorne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gene regulatory networks are fundamental to many processes that take place in the cell. However learning the structure of these networks from high-throughput experimental data and deriving useful biological insights is challenging.
  A Nutrigenetics approach to study gene-diet interactions on Cardio-metabolic diseases in different ethnic groups
  Dr V Karani, Prof J Lovegrove
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"We are seeking a highly motivated candidate for a PhD project that will focus on genetic epidemiology and statistical genetics.
  Multi-omics data fusion for better understanding of host-microbe interactions in health and disease
  Dr A Wijeyesekera, Dr S Gweon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The rapid development and adoption of high-throughput, high resolution analytical technologies (e.g. genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, metagenomics) has resulted in the generation of an avalanche of omics data.
  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.
