  Developing next generation bioimaging/biophotonics tools to dissect the immunological synapse in single cells, one molecule at a time
  Prof M Leake, Dr N Signoret
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We seek an ambitious PhD student to develop/apply new bioimaging/biophotonics tools to gain insight into complex biological processes across multiple length/timescales, from single molecules through to subcellular structures, cells and cellular populations.
  Defining a functional link between constitutive and transcriptional defences to oxidative stress in neurons
  Dr S Sweeney, Prof A J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The activator protein-1 (AP-1) transcription factor is comprised of a Fos and Jun dimer and is the primary mediator of protective and pro-apoptotic responses of neurons to reactive oxygen species (ROS).

  Targeting antibiotic resistance in bacteria: the importance of genome segregation
  Dr D Barilla, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 6 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial antibiotic resistance is a growing problem worldwide. The latter half of the twentieth century has witnessed the dissemination of multidrug-resistant bacteria.
  Emerging targeted radiation therapies: simulations and benchmarking of cellular response to radiation.
  Dr C Diget
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ionizing radiation is a highly effective way to treat cancer. It is used in about 50% of all cancer patients, either alone or in combination with surgery or chemotherapy.
  2D materials for bio- and chemical- sensing applications
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Graphene and graphene-like two dimensional (2D) materials, such as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), hexagonal boron nitride (h-BN), and transition metal oxides (TMOs), have attracted great attention for a wide variety of biosensing technologies in recent years.
  Novel molecular targets to combat antimicrobial resistance: probing the assembly dynamics of a bacterial genome segregation machine
  Dr D Barilla, Prof M Leake
Application Deadline: 12 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial antimicrobial resistance is a growing burden on human health worldwide. However, the latter half of the twentieth century has witnessed a gap in research and development of novel antimicrobial drugs together with the emergence and dissemination of multidrug-resistant bacteria.
  Observing Nucleic Acid Aptamer Binding with Ultrafast 2D-IR Spectroscopy
  Prof N Hunt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project will be a collaboration with Prof Glenn Burley (University of Strathclyde). Background. The strong and specific binding of small molecules and proteins to DNA has relevance across many areas, from fundamental biophysics, through chemical biology to nanotechnology.
  Normal and malignant blood stem cell biology
  Dr D G Kent, Prof I Hitchcock
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the simplest and most provocative concepts in all of stem cell biology is how a single stem cell can give rise to any of the highly specialised cell types of a given tissue while also having the capacity to make a new equally potent stem cell.
  Ion channel signalling in cancer cells
  Dr W Brackenbury
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our cells constantly sense and transport ions present in their environment. From embryonic development to epilepsy to heart disease to cancer, our cells’ ability to respond to changes in the ionic microenvironment is essential for healthy ageing.
  Sorting old from new: protein assembly and turnover in the Gram-negative outer membrane
  Dr C G Baumann, Dr M A Fascione
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gram-negative bacteria have evolved to survive in diverse ecological niches. Some species are pathogenic, while others colonise the mammalian gut and aid food digestion.
  WRDTP ESRC PhD Studentships 2020/21

Funding Type

PhD Type

The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
