  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.
  Modelling and understanding of biological systems, using physics as a tool
  Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Molecular-genetic analysis of intra- and extra-cellular iron reduction systems in bacteria: role in gut colonisation and utilisation of dietary iron sources.
  Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The innate immune defense systems respond to bacterial infection by reducing the amount of available iron in order to restrict bacterial growth.
  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).
  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.
  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.
  Plant-insect interactions in a changing world
  Dr S Gripenberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insects associated with plants comprise one of the most diverse groups of species on earth. Their impact on the ecology and evolution of their host plants is widely recognised, as is their contribution to a number of important ecosystem functions.
  Platelet-cell interactions: Platelets beyond thrombosis and haemostasis
  Dr A Pollitt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Platelets play a key role in the prevention of bleeding following blood vessel damage.
  Silver ion-based antimicrobials: mechanisms of toxicity and resistance
  Dr G Mulley, Prof S C Andrews
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The emergence and persistence of bacterial strains with resistance to multiple classes of antibiotics has led to renewed interest in the antimicrobial properties of silver ions.
  Smart textiles to support rehabilitation and daily living activities post stroke
  Prof R McCrindle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The aim of this PhD is to investigate how smart textiles and/or other wearables can be used to assist people who have had a stroke with their communication, rehabilitation, and/or reengagement in daily living activities and hobbies.
