Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) Funded PhD Studentships

The Midlands Integrative Biosciences Training Partnership (MIBTP) is a BBSRC-funded doctoral training partnership between five research-intensive universities, the University of Warwick, the University of Birmingham, the University of Leicester, Aston University and Harper Adams University.

Asteroseismic probes of stellar activity cycles

Using data from the NASA Kepler and TESS missions, this project will use subtle changes to the properties of stellar oscillations to explore the stellar cycle properties of Sun-like stars and more evolved sub-giants. Read more

Observing the Sun as a star

The Sun is the only star we know for sure has no orbiting planets in the data - since we can remove them perfectly. That makes it the perfect star to study and eventually aid the search for small planets orbiting other stars. Read more

Observations and methods to characterise small planets around Sun-like stars

Finding and characterising planets like Earth are hindered by variable signals from the star itself. Especially in radial velocity data, essential to measure a planet's mass, these signals are often larger than the planet signals. Read more

Generative Models and Machine Learning in Astrophysics

Science and our quest to understand and explain the Universe around us requires interpretability in our models. Many models and especially machine learning models can appear to be a 'black box' that produces answers without understanding. Read more

Observations and methods to discover circumbinary planets

Circumbinary planets orbit around both stars at once, like Tatooine in Starwars. Such planets are rare, but important to understand better the processes behind planet formation and orbital evolution. Read more

ESRC-Funded Studentship in the Birmingham Business School

The University of Birmingham is part of the Midlands Graduate School Doctoral Training Programme that includes Warwick, Aston, Birmingham, Leicester, Loughborough and Nottingham. Read more

Computational model of music synchronisation

In musical ensembles such as piano duets, jazz trios, string quartets, rock groups, samba bands, and drum circles, there is no stable reference for performance timing, and musicians must time and synchronise their performance with each other. Read more

Usability testing for analysis of three-dimensional knee kinematics during gait

Different pathologies such as osteoarthritis (OA) and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture have been shown to alter knee kinematics during gait; this implies that gait analysis may be used to distinguish between different pathologies, measure their progression and evaluate the value of different treatments.

Net-Zero: Hydrogen Powertrain Systems

Brief Description. In line with the net-zero agenda, hydrogen (H2) is considered as a viable zero-carbon energy carrier for internal combustion engines (ICEs) used in medium/heavy-duty mobile applications with high machine mass, daily hours, and duty factor. Read more

Impact of metal-based anticancer therapies on endogenous metal ion homeostasis

Metals are essential to life. Unlike organic biomolecules, metals cannot be synthesised or degraded in cells, and so the strict regulation of metal homeostasis (for example modulation of influx/efflux, compartmentalisation, and speciation) is critical to achieve correct cellular function.
