PhD Fellowships- Department of Psychology

Title: Four PhD Fellowships in Psychology and in Statistical Analysis of Longitudinal Data

Value: These Fellowships cover full academic tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and maintenance grant in line with the UK Research Council standard maintenance grant (for 2016/17, the fee was £4,052 and the maintenance grant was £14,057 although these will increase slightly for 2017/18).

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 28th February 2017.

PhD Studentship - School of Life Sciences

Title: Understanding and mitigating against the causes of yield decline in pea

Value: This four year studentship is BBSRC funded and will cover full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and an annual stipend of at least £14,296 (current RCUK 2016/2017 rate) and consumables.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 31st March 2017.

Project: The project is a collaboration between the University of Warwick and the Processors and Growers Research Organisation (PGRO). The successful candidate with join the MIBTP programme, which includes skills training in the first year.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: Mathematical modelling for clinical outcome prediction in kidney transplantation

Value: This three year studentship will cover full tuition fees (Home/EU students only) and an annual stipend of £14,656* (*estimated over 3 years). International candidates are welcome to apply, but will have to seek alternative funding sources.

Deadline: Open (flexible start date)

Project: This is a joint venture between the School of Engineering at the University of Warwick and the Kidney Transplantation Unit at the University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire. The project aims to apply dynamic systems approaches, based on modern machine learning algorithms, for the prediction of acute kidney rejection and chronic graft loss after kidney transplantation in patients with end stage renal failure. We would like to use mathematical modelling to identify the key factors associated with significant risk of kidney rejection and loss. The project will provide a unique opportunity for the PhD student to engage with the specialists from distinct research areas and gain working experience in highly cross-disciplinary environment. We are well-established team with joint publications, conference trips, research grants, and we meet on regular basis to exchange our research ideas and progress.

PhD Studentship - School of Life Sciences

Title: Self-organising nanosensors for imaging morphogenic gradients in plants.

Value: This three year studentship will cover full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and an annual stipend of at least £14,296 (current RCUK 2016/2017 rate).

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 31 January 2017.

Project: An exciting opportunity is available to join a project funded by the Leverhulme Trust. You will be carrying out research at the interface of synthetic polymer chemistry, biophysics and plant biology on a project that involves the development of novel polymer nanoparticle based sensors for use in plants.

PhD Studentship - School of Life Sciences

Title: Sleep disordered breathing and its relationship to other diseases.

Value: This three year studentship will cover full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and an annual stipend of at least £14,296 (current RCUK 2016/2017 rate).

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 31 January 2017.

Project: Sleep apnoea is a relatively common disorder of breathing. We have recently created a stable and realistic model of central sleep apnoea, allowing an in depth study into this disorder. The project will begin by further developing this model, which will then be characterised by an array of physiological recordings, in awake behaving and anaesthetised preparations. To further understand the neurobiological changes caused by sleep apnoea, the student will perform live imaging of deep brain structures, and make microelectrode biosensor recordings both in vivo and in vitro.

PhD Studentship - School of Engineering

Title: PhD in Diamond Sciences and Technology : Multiscale Modelling of the Effect of Defects on the Mechanical Properties of Diamond

Project: This four year PhD position is funded through the Diamond Science and Technology CDT. The successful candidate will be required to undertake the MSc taught component at Warwick and then two associated mini-projects at partner universities, Imperial College London (with Dr Finn Giuliani, Mechanical Engineering/Materials) and Newcastle (with Dr Jonathan Goss, Electrical Engineering). The student will benefit from being part of a supportive network, and from being taught by experts from eight different universities which they can tap into in future years.

Value: This four year studentship will pay a standard stipend to cover maintenance as well as paying the university tuition fees and provide funding for mini-project, PhD travel expenses and research support. The stipend is usually paid at standard Research Council UK rates.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by the end of January 2017.

Further information and details on how to apply can be found on the link provided.
