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.

PhD Studentship - School of life Sciences

Title: Dynamics of microbe-microbe and microbe-host interactions in mixed-species biofilm infection

Project: Why are chronic infections so hard to treat? How do chronic pathogens interact and evolve in the dense microbial ecosystem within an infected host? Can we find new ways of treating antibiotic-resistant chronic infection by interfering with bacterial behaviour to reduce damage to the host? In this PhD, you will explore these questions in the context of cystic fibrosis lung disease.

Value: The studentship covers full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate and an annual stipend of at least £14,296 (current 2016/2017 RCUK standard rate) for 4 years starting in October 2017.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 22nd December 2016.
