  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships
We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  Exploring large-scale nuclear spin polarisation physics of xenon-129 for hyperpolarised gas MRI applications
  Dr G Norquay, Prof JM Wild
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Within this project, the PhD student will be given the unique opportunity to research the unexplored fundamental physics of large-scale nuclear spin polarisation physics.
  Using conformational changes in polyelectrolytes as a transduction component signals in bioelectronics
  Research Group: Materials Physics
  Dr M Geoghegan
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
The need for biocompatible scaffolds that can be integrated into the body to support therapeutic applications requires a number of factors to work in concert.
  Spin-orbit coupling in synthetic semiconductor-protein complexes for solar energy harvesting
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr J Clark, Prof C N Hunter
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Singlet fission is a process whereby one photon creates two excited states. This two-for-one mechanism could dramatically increase solar cell efficiency (from 33% to >40%).
  Biophysical modelling of bacterial cell wall architectures
  Research Group: Biological Physics
  Dr B Chakrabarti
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Bacterial cell walls are examples of self-assembled composite structures that are formed out of equilibrium. In recent times the text book view of bacterial cell wall has been modified as a result of high resolution imaging studies[1, 2].
  Investigating the role of the mechanosensor channel Piezo1 in human disease
  Dr K Erdmann
Applications accepted all year round
Piezo proteins are ion channels that are gated by mechanical stimuli like stretch or shear stress. In mammalians there are two Piezo isoforms (Piezo1 and Piezo2) with largely different expression pattern.
  Unravelling how mechanical forces build breast tissue to help tackle cancer
  Dr N Akhtar, Dr A Fletcher
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Project description. Disrupted tissue architecture is a central hallmark of cancer. For example, breast cancer is characterized by an abnormal growth of cells filling the hollow spaces of the tissue.
  In silico characterisation of venous valve dynamics
  Dr A Narracott, Dr A Marzo
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
The role of the venous valve in venous haemodynamics remains poorly understood. However, changes in valve behaviour have been identified as factors associated with a number of venous disorders including deep vein thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency.
  Towards a comprehensive computational model of myocardial ischemia
  Prof J Gunn, Prof R Hose
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Background. Physiological measures are of critical importance to make the right therapeutic decisions for individuals.
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2019/20
 . The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
