  4-year PhD studentships in Behaviour Informatics and the multimodal study of behaviour

Funding Type

PhD Type

Newcastle University is offering five, 4-year PhD studentships in the field of behaviour informatics.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Combining cutting edge molecular microbiology and super-resolution microscopy to reveal how bacteria divide, and how to stop them
  Dr S Holden, Prof S J Foster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking to recruit an outstanding student to work on uncovering the architecture of the Bacillus subtilis bacterial cell division septum by super-resolution microscopy.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Drug discovery to control C. difficile infections by targeting sporulation
  Dr P Salgado, Dr J Hubbard
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in a PhD studying antibiotic resistant bacteria and explore new ways to treat drug-resistant infections? In this PhD, you will use a range of biochemistry, biophysical and structural techniques, together with molecular biology, genetics, and microbiology approached to develop new therapeutics targeting C.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating Cognitive Correlates of Circuit dysfunctions in Autism Spectrum Disorders
  Dr A Banerjee, Prof C Petkov
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are a group of early postnatal developmental disabilities with executive dysfunction as a key co-morbid feature.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: New MRI scan technologies to measure pulmonary structural and functional change associated with lung disease
  Dr P Thelwall, Prof A Blamire
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are developing MRI-based methods to image lung ventilation and perfusion properties. These new methods provide quantitative measures of lung function in a non-invasive and radiation-free scan, and the goal of our research is to develop these technologies towards use in the clinic.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Understanding dysregulated repair in lung disease through precise laser injury and quantitative analysis of live cell behaviours in a human airway epithelial model
  Dr C Ward, Dr R Tetley, Dr J Garnett
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Noncommunicable diseases, including chronic respiratory diseases, are responsible for 63% [36 million] of all deaths worldwide, making improved understanding and research an international priority.
  Tapered microstructure fibre and its application for bio-chemical sensing (SF19/EE/MPEE/WU)
  Dr Q Wu, Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently there is an increasing demand for human health monitoring due to the development of the society. This requires to monitor a larger number of analytes, and hence it is crucial to develop an efficient and cost effective detection method.
  Natural Polysaccharide-based Networks for Food Applications (ref: RDF20/APP/TINOCO)
  Dr M Benlloch Tinoco, Dr M Unthank
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applicants are invited to apply for this exciting fully funded 3-year PhD studentship exploring the utilisation of natural polysaccharide-based networks as advanced food materials.
  A novel approach to developing rechargeable fluoride containing polymeric dental materials
  Prof M Patel, Dr N Karpukhina
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Fluoride has the potential to inhibit caries by promoting remineralisation of carious lesions and acid eroded enamel.
  Iontophoresis to deliver corticosteroids across buccal mucosal using hydrogel as delivery systems
  Prof M Patel, Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Topical delivery of drugs to treat oral mucosal disease is often challenging. This is due to, for example, the saliva washing therapeutic agents away into the gastrointestinal system, the movement of oral structures during mastication and the presence of keratinized oral mucosal surfaces.
  Modelling of Oral Neutrophil Epithelial interactions
  Dr E Hagi-Pavli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and Clinical Significance. Neutrophils are an important and vital cellular component of the innate immune system providing rapid protection against microbial invasion.
  Overcoming the penetration depth limitations of optical coherence tomography in clinical dentistry using full electromagnetic wave computer models
  Dr P H Tomlins, Dr R Donnan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. In healthcare, imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools available. Deep tissue imaging is usually achieved using either ionising X-Ray radiation, MRI which is expensive or ultrasound, which has low resolution.
  Dissecting the role of MCE proteins in Cyanobacteria
  Dr V Darbari, Prof C Mullineaux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
