  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].
  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.
  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.
  Applications of topology to soft matter physics
  Dr M Grant, Dr R Hepworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will address mathematical problems in the research field of algebraic topology, inspired by the theory of topological defects in soft materials.
  Boundary Effects in Active Matter Systems
  Dr F Ginelli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

he study of collective properties of active matter is a fast-emerging interdisciplinary research field.
  Chaos and fractals in fluid motion
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Grebogi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The advection of particles and fields by fluid flows is a problem of great interest for both fundamental physics and engineering applications.
  Enhancing predictability in chaotic systems
  Dr F Ginelli, Prof A Politi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this research program – which involves theoretical analysis and numerical simulations -- is to apply fundamental results and recent developments (to which the supervisors significantly contributed) of dynamical system theory to enhance our ability to predict the future evolution of complex and chaotic dynamical systems -- such as weather and climate systems.
  Fast, reliable and secure wireless IoT chaos-based communication
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project tackles scientific issues aimed at creating and laying the mathematical foundations of an innovative Wireless IoT Communication System…
  How to make molecular machines: modelling ribosome biogenesis
  Prof C Romano, Prof I Stansfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ribosomes are arguably the most important biological molecular machines. Cells can be seen as factories of proteins, with ribosomes being the machines producing them.
  Modelling the deformation of cells
  Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the elementary building blocks of living organisms. The correct functioning of living organisms is therefore conditioned to the ability of living cells to withstand forces and deformations and to promptly adapt to their mechanical environment.
  Neuronal Dynamics from a complex network perspective
  Prof A Politi, Dr E Ullner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human brain is possibly the most intriguing complex system we know. The combination of experimental work and theoretical approaches has gained many insides in the last century but we are still far away from a real understanding.
  Noisy translation: modelling of stochastic effects on protein production
  Prof C Romano, Prof I Stansfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on the mathematical modelling of a fundamental process in the cell. translation of the messenger RNA into a protein.
  Statistical physics of DNA replication
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Romano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to apply statistical physics and probability theory to the problem of DNA replication in living cells.
  The mathematics behind the smartness of neural networks
  Dr M S Baptista
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Intelligence is one of the pillars that allows animals to master their environment. Scientific approaches recently proposed have been capable of simulating networked systems that reproduce similar emergent manifestations of behavior as those observed in the brain.
