Training the next generation of fusion scientists…. Fusion has the potential to meet our energy needs in a sustainable way, with minimum impact on the environment.
  Research opportunities in the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies is widely recognised as a leading centre for interdisciplinary research in the long 18th century.
  Research opportunities in the Centre for Medieval Studies

Funding Type

PhD Type

As the oldest interdisciplinary centre for postgraduate study of the Middle Ages in the UK, the Centre for Medieval Studies (CMS) offers world-class teaching from expert academics.
  Research opportunities in the Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Renaissance and Early Modern Studies (CREMS) is a thriving interdisciplinary community devoted to the study of the long 16th and 17th centuries.
  Research opportunities in the Centre for Women's Studies

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Centre for Women's Studies (CWS) is a leading interdisciplinary centre for feminist and gender-oriented research. Located in our own dedicated space, our seven core members of staff are all prominent feminist academics.
  Research opportunities in the Department of Archaeology

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Department of Archaeology at York is a vibrant research community and a centre of excellent research-led teaching.
  Advancing our understanding of fundamental cellular processes by investigating membrane contact sites.
  Dr P Pryor, Dr C G Baumann
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An emerging, exciting area of research is that of membrane contact site (MCS) biology.
  Behavioural Mechanisms Driving Collective Smothering in Hens
  Dr D Franks, Dr EJH Robinson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the qualities of captive environments that cause abnormal behaviour has been a major topic in animal welfare. However, smothering - a type of abnormal behaviour in hens - has received little study to date.
  Caught in a Venus flytrap: investigating the segregation dynamics of a multidrug resistance plasmid
  Dr D Barilla, Dr M Hawkins
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial multidrug resistance is a growing burden on human health worldwide. Large, low copy number plasmids carrying resistance genes shuttle easily from cell to cell in bacterial populations, causing intra-species and inter-species spreading of antibiotic resistance.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Development of magnetic nanoparticles for in vivo tissue regeneration
  Dr D Ungar, Prof P G Genever
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The regeneration of injured tissues can best be achieved through the action of appropriate stem cells that proliferate and differentiate to heal the injury.
  Dissecting the mechanisms underlying sleep disturbances in Parkinson’s Disease
  Dr S Chawla, Dr C J H Elliott
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ageing and neurodegenerative disorders, such as Parkinson’s, are characterized by a progressive loss of neurons in particular brain regions leading to characteristic behavioural changes including cognitive decline and sleep disruption.
  Ecological and evolutionary interactions in insect symbiont communities
  Dr J Ferrari
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most organisms host bacterial symbionts, which can substantially affect the biology of their hosts. For example, they can alter the host’s nutrition, reproduction, immunity and protect the host from environmental stresses.
  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
