PhD studentship - Gas migration through Salt (Fixed Term)

Closes: 
Friday, 1 May, 2020

There are a number of options for the geological storage of nuclear waste. One approach is to use salt as a host rock owing to its low permeability. However, evidence is emerging that gas and water can migrate through salt, and the mechanisms controlling this are therefor of great interest. This PhD project involves exploring some of the mechanisms which may control migration of gas through salt. The project will involve both experimental ad theoretical modelling, and some use of field analogues and field observations.

PhD Studentship - Toxicity-induced phase separation of transcriptional regulators: mechanisms and cellular consequences

MRC Toxicology Unit
Closes: 
Monday, 10 February, 2020

SUPERVISORS:

1st Ritwick Sawarkar

PROJECT OUTLINE

We have recently observed that proteotoxicity in human cells causes biomolecular condensation of critical transcriptional regulators leading to global transcriptional changes. We do not understand the mechanisms underlying the formation of these nuclear condensates or their function in response to toxic injury. The project combines molecular cell biology with biochemistry as well as functional genomics to identify cellular factors that link toxic injury to nuclear condensates.

EPSRC DTP Studentship - Integrating advanced reporter nanomaterials and molecules to indicate the 'health' of biomedical materials during manufacture

Department of Engineering
Closes: 
Sunday, 15 March, 2020

With the advances in biomedical engineering, the possibility of personalised medical treatment such as customized regenerative tissue scaffolds is fast becoming a reality. This technology is enabled via distributed manufacturing processes such as 3D bioprinting. Hydrogels are the material of choice for this application due to their mechanical properties and biological compatibility. Although bioprinting of hydrogels has been proven feasible, the question remains, what happens to the underlying gel structure and mechanical performance following the high shear process of 3D printing?
