  Marine Mammal Ecotoxicology
  Dr G Troisi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Exposure to persistent organic pollutants such has been shown to cause reproductive failure in wild seals and other aquatic mammal species and endocrine disruptive toxic mechanisms are believed to be involved.
  Development of a novel 3D gut-microbiota model for the assessment of absorption and metabolism of health supplements and therapeutic drugs
  Dr P Ragazzon
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut epithelium is a complex setting of intestinal cells and epithelial cells filled with transporters, enzymes and channels; these cells are then populated by bacteria (microbiota) that help with the metabolism of nutrients and transport into the blood stream.
  Bridging the gap between environment and health – exposure assessment of potentially harmful agents in soil
  Dr P Hooda
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our current understanding of soil exposure in the UK population is extremely limited. The current risk assessment paradigm makes large assumptions based on very uncertain data to estimate direct exposures via soil ingestion or dust inhalation.
  Assessing hazard and exposure from microplastics by oral exposure
  Prof T Gant
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microplastics have gained public attention since their environmental impact was highlighted by media outlets including Blue Planet (BBC) and have been subject to a House of Commons inquiry with evidence given by this project’s academic supervisor.
  Toxicological assessment of electronic cigarette flavours and flavour-derived e-liquid constituents.
  Dr T Marczylo
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The initial aims of this project will be a literature review of the toxicity of e-cigarette flavours and then to screen a range of e-cigarette flavours for toxicity using high throughput screening techniques in a suitable in vitro lung model.
  Developing inhibitors of Rac1b as a potential novel drug against breast cancer stem cells
  Dr R A Bryce, Dr A Ucar, Dr R Whitehead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK with a lifetime risk of 1-in-8 for women and accounts for 12,000 deaths annually.
  Discovery and Development of Biocatalytic Solutions to Mitigate Microplastic Pollution
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr T Swift, Dr R Hamed, Dr U Sivarajah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic contamination is a great ecological disaster facing modern society; a burden overwhelmingly heaped on the least economically developed countries.
  Towards “Precision Mining” of wastewater: Development of modular electrochemical systems for the in situ upcycling of acid mine drainage into functional nanoproducts (Funded by the QUEX Institute)
  Dr R Crane
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join a world-leading, cross-continental research team.
  The effect of air pollution on the interaction between bacteria and bacteriophage
  Dr J Morrissey, Prof M Clokie, Dr A Millard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Air pollution is the world’s largest single environmental health risk, being responsible for an eighth of all global deaths per year (World Health Organisation, 2017).

This is an industrially funded PhD project in collaboration with Verdel Instruments, Ltd., a spinout company from the University of Warwick.
  Obtaining a better understanding of the identity of agrichemical photoproducts
  Dr C E Dessent
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Agrichemicals are widely used to to protect crops from pests and enhance crop yields, but represent an important class of potential environmental contaminants.
