  Antimatter Chemistry: reactive scattering collisions of antihydrogen atoms with hydrogen molecules
  Dr M Law, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recently interest in antimatter research has increased as facilities such as CERN have succeeded in trapping antimatter atoms to study their properties [1].
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Electrocatalysis for Energy Conversion and Storage
  Prof A Cuesta Ciscar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electrochemistry allows to convert chemical energy directly into electrical energy, and vice versa, with high efficiency and, therefore, electrochemical systems are excellent candidates to store energy from renewables and convert it back into work when needed.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  New calcium phosphate bone cements for potential biomaterial applications; bone repair and/or scaffold fabrication
  Prof I Gibson, Prof J M S Skakle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Calcium phosphates bone cements are widely used for bone-replacement materials due to their chemical similarity to natural bone but also their ability to set and harden in situ and their ability to be injected as a paste.
  The synthesis and photolysis of photoacid generators used in polymer resists for making silicon chips
  Dr M J Plater, Dr W T A Harrison
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polymer resists are used as thin films in the manufacture of silicon chips. They are spin coated onto a silicon wafer and irradiated through a pattern in a mask.
  Accountable autonomy of software agents
  Prof W Vasconcelos, Dr N Oren
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many tasks once performed by humans are now carried out by autonomous artificial intelligence systems. An important aspect of such systems is their accountability, that is, how their decisions and behaviours can be recorded, scrutinised and, if necessary, revised.
  Complex Norm Synthesis via Deep Learning
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how agents operating as part of a group should learn behaviours that benefit the group as a whole. These behaviours are commonly referred to as norms, and describe obligations, permissions and prohibitions on actions in specific contexts.
  Explainable Autonomous AI Systems
  Dr N Oren, Prof W Vasconcelos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate how the decisions made by an AI system operating as part of a group can be explained.
  Generating persuasive messages with controlled attributes for people with mental health conditions
  Dr C Lin, Prof E Reiter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

According to the national statistics, approximately 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year. In England, 1 in 6 people report experiencing a common mental health problem (such as anxiety and depression) in any given week.
  Integrating structured knowledge with Machine Learning Representations
  Dr F Guerin, Dr C Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he problem. Machine learning systems are effective at learning from scratch, but it is not clear how to reuse the knowledge they have learned for another purpose.
  Using an AI App to Encourage Safer Driving in Non-Western Countries
  Prof E Reiter, Dr C Lin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have been developing smartphone apps which encourage safer driving.
  Testing the DFS Paradigm: determining controls on the development, thickness, lateral extent and character of mudstone distribution in the Clair Field - BP
  Prof A Hartley, Prof J Howell
Application Deadline: 8 July 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent work has shown that the distribution, lateral extent, thickness and character of mudstones varies systematically depending on location within either an axial or distributive fluvial system.
