  Macromolecules for drug delivery
  Dr L Twyman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have worked with a number of water soluble polymer systems that are capable of encapsulating and solubilising various hydrophobic drug moieties.
  Disease phenomics - quantifying the development of disease symptoms in infected plants
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biology is undergoing a revolution as ‘omic technologies allow us to make hundreds or thousands of measurements on large populations of plants.
  How does clubroot obtain nutrients from its living plant host?
  Dr S A Rolfe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Clubroot is an important pathogen of Brassica crops. The disease is found throughout the world and causes severe economic losses.
  PhD in Chemical Ecology
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In response to the near-universal threat of being consumed by insect herbivores, plants have evolved a sophisticated arsenal of chemical defences.
  Development of methodologies to accelerate alloy design for additive manufacturing
  Research Group: MAPP - Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes
  Dr K Christofidou
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability to produce parts with complex geometries, previously inaccessible via traditional fabrication methods, has made additive manufacturing (AM) an enabling production process for a host of industries.
  Coupled homogenization and precipitation kinetics during additive manufacture and processing
  Research Group: MAPP - Manufacture using Advanced Powder Processes
  Dr M Anderson, Prof H Basoalto
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The additive manufacture of metal alloys through powder processing is an exciting field where the potential benefits to industry are numerous and the scientific problems are challenging.
  Developing RNA therapeutics to target heart attack and stroke
  Prof P Evans
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The build-up of fatty deposits in arteries (called atherosclerosis) can lead to heart attack and stroke. This disease develops at branches and bends of arteries that are exposed to complex blood flow patterns which causes damage to vascular endothelial cells (a vital sheet of cells at the inner surface of arteries).
  Synthesis and Structural Characterisation of Calcium Thickened Greases
  Dr OM Mykhaylyk, Prof A Ryan
Application Deadline: 23 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lubricants have been in use for centuries. Their primary purpose is to increase efficiency of movement and reduce friction and wear between components.
  Studying protein aggregation in patient derived cellular models of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
  Dr S De, Dr L Ferraiuolo
Application Deadline: 24 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aggregation and deposition of specific protein(s) are common hallmark of several neurodegenerative disorders including ALS. Aggregation of several proteins such as FUS, TDP-43, C9orf72, SOD1 are closely linked with ALS initiation and progression.
  Water pollution control using polymer-inorganic complexes
  Dr F Clegg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Water pollution arises via several different sources, including municipal, industrial (in particular petroleum) and agricultural activities.
  Utilising sensors for predicting the residual strength of corroded reinforced concrete beams
  Prof F O'Flaherty, Dr V Starinieri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. The project is structural engineering based and will investigate the influence of corrosion on reinforced concrete beams using sensors to automatically detect differences in the ability of the structural member to carry its design load.
  Driving forward the future of magnetic materials through advanced micromagnetic simulation
  Dr J Dean
Application Deadline: 1 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

NOTE. This is an industrial CASE (Cooperative Awards in Science & Technology) award supported by Volkswagen (VW) and involves a three-month placement at their Research Centre in Wolfsburg, Germany.
  Biogas enrichment and nutrient recovery from wastewater using bio-electrochemical systems
  Dr M Goel, Dr A Asthana
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The integrated biorefinery is emerging, sustainable, energy producing wastewater treatment, which can also provide a renewable source of various useful products, such as biohydrogen, bioelectricity, nutrients and other biobased products.
  Aqueous Erosion-Corrosion Studies of nanoscale multilayer PVD coatings
  Dr Y Purandare, Prof P Hovsepian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solid particle erosion-corrosion of surfaces is highly destructive in nature and leads to deleterious effects such as loss of material, efficiency and economic losses.
  PhD in glass and glass-ceramic materials for solar energy and environmental applications
  Prof Paul Bingham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD candidates with a passion for materials science, engineering, physics and/or chemistry, applied to the fields of energy and the environment, should apply.
