  Quantum Control: shaping light to enhance chemistry
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By modulating the light with which you excite materials we can enhance specific electronic, nuclear and even chemical reactions! The goal is therefore to set up a MIIPS pulse shaper and to adapt it to our Helios transient absorption system..
  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.
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
  EPSRC-SFI Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems – Call for Applications for 4-year Funded PhD and EngD Studentships

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for one hundred STEM graduates excited to improve the world via impactful research in new and novel metallic materials for power generation, transport, sustainability and recyclables, in a rapidly evolving digital manufacturing era using advanced computing techniques.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  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.
  Non-equilibrium models for curing of thermoplastic/thermoset blends
  Prof N Clarke
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The fuel consumption of commercial aircraft has been reduced by about 20% due to an increased use of lightweight, plastic-based, composites.
  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.
  3D imaging technology roadmap and software tool for X-ray histology
  Research Group: Bioengineering
  Dr P Schneider
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Philipp Schneider, Philip Basford, Peter Lackie (Faculty of Medicine). Project description.
  Intelligent systems for effective chest compressions during Cardiopulmonary resuscitation
  Research Group: Engineering Materials
  Prof L. Jiang
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Prof. Liudi Jiang. Co-supervisor Dr. Serena Cottrell, Dr. Rachael Gregson. Project description. In the UK alone, there are over 30,000 cardiac arrests outside hospitals every year, but the survival rate remains less than 1 in 10.
  Advanced ultra-short pulse two-micron fibre lasers for medical and bio-science imaging
  Research Group: Fibre & Systems Group
  Dr D J Richards
Application Deadline: 30 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Professor David Richardson FRS, FREng. Co-supervisor. Dr Jonathan Price. Project description.
  3D image based modelling of collagenous soft tissues
  Research Group: nCATS
  Dr G. Limbert
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. G Limbert and P Schneider. Project description. Due to their fibrous nature soft collagenous tissues (e.g. skin, ligaments) possess strongly directional mechanical properties which play a key role in ensuring their diverse physiological functions.
  A microstructural mechanobiological model of hair growth
  Research Group: nCATS
  Dr G. Limbert
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. G Limbert and A Page. Project description. Personal care products fuel a multi-billion pounds industry which relies more and more on advanced multiphysics computational simulations to accelerate development and assist in the design decision-making process.
  Quantum biology on a chip: investigating the optical properties of single biomolecules within nanofabricated photonic devices
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Dr L Sapienza
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Luca Sapienza. Project description. The progress in fundamental science and technology has allowed researchers to explore intriguing, but often elusive, quantum effects in atoms, ions and semiconductor nanostructures.
  3D image based modelling of drug transfer through placental nanopores
  Dr B Sengers
Application Deadline: 31 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisor. Bram Sengers. Co-supervisor Rohan Lewis (Medicine). Project description. How pharmaceuticals and environmental toxins cross the placenta is not clear in many cases and this has a direct impact on drug safety in pregnancy and any medical advice given by doctors.
