  Unraveling corneal fibrosis mechanisms via the study of vimentin expression in corneal cells on electrospun membranes
  Dr I Ortega, Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is estimated that 135 million people have severely impaired vision because of a loss of corneal transparency. Corneal blindness is considered the 4th largest cause of blindness worldwide, after cataracts, glaucoma and macular degeneration.
  Fully-funded PhD studentship – Fabrication and characterisation of monolithic on-chip integration of III-nitride optoelectronics
  Prof T Wang
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to work on Fabrication and characterisation of monolithic on-chip integration of III-nitride photonics and electronics.
  Treating cancer by targeting the mechanical properties of cells
  Dr A Gad
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer development is marked by massive increase of matrix fibres around tumor cells, which changes the mechanical properties of the tissue and is used to diagnose tumours by manual palpation.
  Investigating and Improving the Thermal Degradation Pathways of Polymer and Composites
  Dr F Clegg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Area. Throughout the world people are injured and killed in fires, and many suffer from the effects of inhaling toxic fumes and smoke.
  SANS – SEMSANS for the study of hierarchical length scale materials systems (soft, hard and biological)
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Dr A Parnell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project would also be supervised by Rob Dalgliesh and Adam Washington from ISIS. Coatings underpin our material world by creating surfaces that have the desired properties e.g.
  Nanoplasmonic measurements on biological molecules
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently we have developed fast, inexpensive, simple routes to nanostructured proteins1 and metals, including macroscopically extended, nanostructured arrays of gold nanoparticles.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials.
  Surface analysis of layered polymer brushes
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the most exciting new features on our recently installed state-of-the-art XPS spectrometer is the capacity for depth-profiling of delicate organic polymeric materials.
