  Transdermal and Topical Drug Delivery: developing novel formulations to increase drug delivery into and through skin
  Prof A Williams
Applications accepted all year round
Human skin is a remarkable self-repairing barrier that controls the ingress of environmental contaminants and regulates water loss from the body.
  The effect of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA, “fish oils”), on vascular and potassium channel function
  Dr A McNeish, Dr G Cottrell, Dr F Tamagnini
Applications accepted all year round
There is a large body of evidence that consumption of oily fish or supplementation of fish oils leads to improvements in cardiovascular heath (as well as other health benefits including anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects).
  Structure-function relationships governing polyphenol bioactivity with respect to plasma membranes
  Prof R A Frazier, Dr R Green
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  Nanostructured Materials For Energy and Devices
  Dr R Bennett
Applications accepted all year round
Functional Materials are increasingly being developed with nanostructures that alter their physical characteristics in comparison to bulk materials.
  Studying phase transitions by computer simulation techniques
  Dr L Bartok-Partay
Applications accepted all year round
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
"“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
"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
"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.
  Nano Materials for Applications in Energy Recovery
  Prof A.V. Powell
Applications accepted all year round
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
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.
