The GREEN CDT is a consortium of the five universities of Lancaster, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Sheffield, which aims to train the next generation of expert nuclear scientists and engineers.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT)

Funding Type

PhD Type

16 fully funded, four-year PhD studentships are available in the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Soft Matter for Formulation and Industrial Innovation (SOFI2 CDT) commencing in September 2020, for graduates in the physical and biological sciences, mathematics and engineering.
  Fluid mechanics of polymer melt filtration
  Dr M Wilson
Application Deadline: 16 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Fluid Dynamics is now recruiting to this fantastic PhD opportunity in partnership with Dupont Teijin Films.
  Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Facuty of Arts, Humanities and Cultures brings together academic Schools and Institutes specialising in a wide range of research areas.
  A ‘Metastasis-On-A-Chip’ Microphysiological Model of Cancer Metastasis to Bone
  Dr M Amer, Dr V Pensabene, Prof F Meldrum
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone is a frequent site of cancer metastases and usually indicates poor clinical prognosis. Metastasis of tumour cells in the bone marrow is a dynamic process, and cell behaviour is regulated by three-dimensional (3D) cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions with its microenvironment.
  A mechanistic understanding of allosteric regulation of neuronal sodium-activated potassium channels
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr S Muench, Dr A Kalli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and couples sodium influx to excitability.
  Ca2+ signalling in neurodegeneration and Alzheimer’s disease
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Prof I A Hope
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human variants of the ryanodine receptor, the main intracellular calcium ion channel, could be responsible for Alzheimer’s disease.
  Cellular mechanisms of detrimental skeletal muscle remodeling induced by cardiac dysfunction
  Dr T.S. Bowen, Dr D Steele
Application Deadline: 14 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The loss of skeletal muscle mass and strength is a key impairment in many disease states. This occurs in both limb and respiratory muscles and leads to pulmonary complications and severe disability.
  Control and inhibition of virus replication
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A.K Tuplin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type


The Tuplin laboratory utilises a range of cutting-edge approaches to investigate how arboviruses - specificaly Chikungunya, Dengue and Zika viruses - control replication and translation of their genomes through interactions between RNA structures, host cell proteins and non-coding RNA, and the potential of such RNA elements/interactions as novel therapeutic targets.
  Dissecting the molecular mechanisms of antibiotic resistance in bacterial pathogens
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antibiotics make possible the treatment and cure of life-threatening bacterial infections. Since their introduction in the middle years of the 20th Century, they have added ~10 years to the human lifespan, and have become a cornerstone of modern medicine.
