Sustainable compostable packaging formed from all natural materials

  Research Group: School of Physics and Astronomy
We live in a throw-away society in which we make, use, and dispose with detrimental effects to our environment and health, such as plastic contaminants in oceans and food chains. Read more

Examining the mechanisms that cause cardiovascular disease by studying the heart or adipose tissue

Heart failure has a serious impact on our society and once diagnosed has a poor survival rate. In the United Kingdom, there are about 1.5 million people living with the after-effects of a heart attack. Read more

The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership

 The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme is a 4-year DPhil*/PhD programme that aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research. Read more

How GABA neurones in the DVC control glucose metabolism

The Dorsal Vagal Complex (DVC) of the brain is an important regulator of glucose metabolism and food intake. The Nucleus of the Solitary Tract (NTS) in the DVC senses insulin and triggers a neuronal relay to decrease hepatic glucose production (HPG) in rodents. Read more

Understanding the Impacts of Inhaled Particulate Matter on Neurological Health

The biological processes underlying the development of dementia and other neurodegenerative disorders are complex and not fully understood, but accumulating evidence has demonstrated that exposure to air pollution, especially airborne particles, is a potentially important environmental risk factor.

Investigating novel molecular regulators of the brown adipocyte programme

Brown adipose tissue is an enigmatic tissue that plays an important role in energy metabolism. The increasing prevalence of obesity-related disorders has led to a growing need for therapeutic strategies to reverse diet-induced weight gain. Read more

Co-design and real-world testing of an intervention to implement an evidence- and theory-based long-term physical activity intervention into stroke rehabilitation pathways (PARAS-IMP) (REF: SF22/HLS/SER/MOORE)

The Department of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation at Northumbria University, Newcastle has a global reputation for academic excellence that is underpinned by a vibrant, high-quality research-rich environment. We are seeking enthusiastic and talented PhD candidates for the following project.

Exploring the Molecular Mechanism of Novel Mitochondrial Neurotoxins identified through a Machine Learning Approach

Mitochondrial inhibition is an important ‘OFF-target’ mechanism of drug-induced toxicity in the clinic, contributing to drug attrition in clinical trials and drug withdrawal following approval because of severe adverse events 1. Read more

PhD: Co-fermentation in the whisky industry for sustainability and flavour creation

The International Centre for Brewing and Distilling (ICBD) at Heriot-Watt University in association with the Scotch Whisky Research Institute (SWRI) are offering an IBioIC-Industry co-funded PhD project, expected to commence by 30th September 2022. Read more

Identifying novel ways of producing keratin proteins and resultant sustainable textile fibers

Applicants are invited to apply for a fully funded PhD programme to carry out a feasibility study to identify novel ways of producing recombinant keratin proteins and resultant sustainable textile fibers. Read more

Biodegradable fibres for antimicrobial face masks

Applicants are invited to apply for a fully funded PhD programme to investigate the creation of biodegradable fibres from bacteria-generated bioplastics, i.e. polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs), with appealing mechanical competence and functionalities. Read more
