  Robot Learning for Long-term Autonomy
  Dr L Sun
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting PhD opportunity in robotics is available within the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield - to be supervised by Dr.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of spinal cord PET-MRI for translational neuroscience applications
  Dr S.P. Sourbron, Dr C Tsoumpas, Dr T Jenkins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The combination of positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in hybrid PET-MRI scanners promises major advances in our understanding of neurodegenerative disease and development of more effective treatment.
  BBSRC White Rose CASE studentship - Novel approaches for the identification of allosteric inhibitors of high value therapeutic targets
  Prof J P Waltho
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This study will develop a novel approach to identify allosteric inhibitor sites on a wide variety of high-value therapeutic targets, including protein kinases, protein phosphatases and small G-proteins.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How do non-coding enhancer RNAs confer genetic risk in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)?
  Dr Dan Bose, Dr J Cooper-Knock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project. Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is an aggressive neurodegenerative disease with no effective therapy. The established genetic causes of ALS can only explain a small fraction of the observed disease phenotypes.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How does the human innate immune system kill the Streptococcus pneumoniae bacterium during infection?
  Dr A Fenton, Dr L Prince
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae is a highly successful human pathogen and a leading cause of pneumonia, a disease responsible for millions of deaths every year.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Development of an automated analysis pipeline to study bacterial cell wall structure and resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics
  Dr S Mesnage, Dr M Collins
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The most widely used antibiotics ever discovered (beta-lactams) are targeting the enzymes that polymerize peptidoglycan (PG), the essential component of the bacterial cell wall.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: How to kill a difficult superbug: understanding the evolution of antimicrobial resistance in Clostridioides difficile
  Dr R Fagan, Prof M Brockhurst
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing resistance to antibiotics is one of the greatest health challenges facing humanity today. Clostridioides difficile is the primary cause of antibiotic-associated infections in UK hospitals and antibiotic-induced disruption of the gut microbiota is a prerequisite for infection.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Magnetic resonance imaging of lung fibrosis in interstial lung disease – physics or engineering PhD project
  Prof J Wild, Dr P Ford, Dr S Bianchi
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project the student will work with the primary supervisor (Jim Wild, Professor of MRI physics [email protected]), clinical collaborators in Sheffield (Dr Steve Bianchi) and an industrial partner (Dr Paul Ford, Galapagos Pharmaceuticals) to develop quantitative magnetic resonance imaging methods for the assessment of lung fibrosis.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Activation of Aurora Kinase A by DNA damage – understanding the signalling pathway to improve radiotherapy response
  Dr H Bryant, Prof C Eyers, Prof P Eyers
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radiation is a mainstay of cancer therapy, however radioresistance is a significant challenge in the treatment of locally advanced, recurrent and metastatic cancers.
