  Using next-generation sequencing and CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing to investigate penetrance and phenotypic variation in inherited eye disease
  Dr C Toomes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human inherited retinal diseases (IRDs) result from mutations in over 250 different genes, many of them implicated by the Leeds Vision Research Group (eg Panagiotou et al 2017, AJHG 100:960-968; El-Asrag et al 2015, 96:948-54).
  Understanding drug-resistance in myeloid cancer
  Dr P Laslo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Under pathogenic challenges, cells of the innate system become epigenetically reprogrammed and establish immune memory.
  Leeds University Business School

Funding Type

PhD Type

Leeds University Business School is one of the most influential business schools in the UK. • Ranked in the UK Top 10 for research in the Research Excellence Framework 2014.
  Developing AI approach to autonomous dismantling/packaging of nuclear installations
  Dr X Jia, Prof Shane Xie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At some stage in the decommissioning of nuclear installations (e.g., reactors and gloveboxes), it is inevitable that large metal structures (e.g., reactor vessels, gloveboxes, structural components) need to be cut into smaller pieces to be packed in containers, for temporary storage or permanent disposal or simply for transportation.
  Electron Microscopy of Nanoparticle-Based Systems using Cryogenic and Volume Approaches
  Dr N Hondow
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order for engineered nanoparticles to be successfully applied in the real world, detailed and representative characterisation is first required.
  TRANSCEND: Advanced ultrasonic characterisation of slurry flows
  Dr T Hunter
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

We present an opportunity for STEM graduates to be a part of an exciting new consortium in nuclear waste management and decommissioning, with a fully funded PhD in advanced ultrasonic characterisation of waste slurry flows, for remote process control of nuclear waste transfers.
  Feedback-responsive protocells
  Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Feedback in chemical systems can give rise to clocks, bistable switches or oscillations; all of these features are employed by living cells in order to generate robust decisions and outputs while existing in a deafening background of thermodynamic noise.
  Metallosupramolecular assemblies and metal-organic frameworks
  Dr M Hardie
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanometre-sized polyhedral or prismatic chemical architectures can self-assemble from combinations of transition metal cations and multifunctional ligands.
  Reconfigurable Polymers via Supramolecular Self-Sorting
  Prof A J Wilson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to mimic the ability of biological materials to force macromolecular reconfiguration using photo-switchable non-covalent self-sorting.
  Magnox sludge immobilisation in bespoke acid-based geopolymers
  Dr S Bernal, Dr S Adu-Amankwah, Dr L Black
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disposal of magnesium-bearing intermediate level waste sludge arising from reprocessed spent fuel from Magnox reactors in the UK presents significant decommissioning challenges.
