Default DNA Damage Response

The University of Manchester
BBSRC Industrial CASE PhD Studentship
Drug Design and Action
School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences
DNA Damage Response and Molecular Recognition by the Innate Immune System.

Professor Ian Stratford & Dr Kaye Williams (University Of Manchester)
Dr Robert Wilkinson (Astrazeneca)
The School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences is inviting applications for a distinguished three-year BBSRC Industrial CASE PhD studentship commencing in January 2008. The studentship is open to UK nationals only due to the nature of the funding and will attract a minimum annual stipend of £15,100 in addition to tuition fees. The project would involve a three-month placement at AstraZeneca, Alderley Park, Cheshire.

New data are emerging that provide further insights into molecular mechanisms/pathways underlying recognition of diseased cells by the innate immune system and in particular Natural Killer (NK) cells. Mouse and human ligands for the NK activation receptor NKG2D are constitutively expressed in vitro on certain transformed lines and upregulated on the surface on cell lines following genotoxic stress and stalled DNA replication. These findings suggest a novel link between the immune response and processes that regulate genome integrity.

This proposed project would focus on a number of key questions around understanding the immune-recognition of the DNA damage response following genotoxic injury in an in vivo setting. The project would be hosted within a group which integrates expertise in experimental therapeutics, cell and molecular biology and tumour biology.

Candidates should hold a first or upper-second class honours degree in a relevant biological/medical discipline and meet the eligibility criteria set out in the BBSRC guidelines (link below). Skills in standard immunology and/or cell biology techniques (e.g. tissue culture, flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry) would be an advantage.

http://www.bbsrc.ac.uk/funding/training/eligibility.pdf.

It is expected that following successful completion of this PhD the candidate would progress into further academia or R&D in industries including pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.
Interested candidates should submit a CV and detailed covering letter outlining their suitability for carrying out this study to Professor Ian Stratford: ian.stratford@manchester.ac.uk.
Contact details for two academic or professional referees should also be provided.

Default Sustainable Contruction Products

EPSRC Industrial Case Award PhD Studentship
Sustainable Contruction Products Using Novel Low Carbon Mgo Containing Binder Technology
Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Dr Chris Cheeseman and Nikolaos Vlasopoulos

A research project in collaboration with Laing O'Rourke

Imperial is ranked in the top ten universities of the world, according to the 2006 Times Higher Education Supplement league tables.

This 3.5-year Industrial Case Award represents an exciting opportunity to carry out innovative research leading to a PhD at Imperial College.

Research at Imperial College is developing a new binder system based on magnesium oxide (MgO) combined with other mineral additives. Unlike Portland cement, this binder does not require high temperature processing, and will be manufactured by a process that has minimal CO2 emissions. The aim is to produce a binder that will set and harden by absorbing atmospheric CO2. This provides unique potential to develop a range of 'carbon negative' construction products (e.g. blocks, tiles) for use in a wide range of applications.

The project is in collaboration with Laing O'Rourke plc, the largest privately owned construction firm in the UK. They are committed to sustainable development, the enhancement of the environment and the development of more sustainable construction products.

Applications are particularly invited from good honours graduate students (1st or upper 2nd class honours degree) with a background in materials science/civil engineering or other relevant scientific disciplines.

Default Design of future complex microsystems

PhD Studentship
Design of future complex microsystems
Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre (IMRC)
Academic Supervisors: Dr Ashutosh Tiwari and Dr Jeffrey Alcock

Duration: Three years

Supported by the EPSRC through Cranfield University's Innovative Manufacturing Research Centre (IMRC), a studentship of up to £12,600 p.a. for 3 years plus fees* is available.

Cranfield University currently has a vacancy for a high-calibre graduate to undertake an exciting PhD research project in the area of the design of future complex microsystems. The successful candidate will form part of a project team undertaking research in this new area.

Future microsystems, such as complex biomedical microdevices, will incorporate many subsections, each of which is likely to have mechanical, electrical, thermal, electrostatic and/or fluidic interactions with other parts of the design. Hence, a change in design of one device sub-section will usually require changes in design of many other sub-sections of the device.

The PhD project seeks to build a new design methodology for future microsystems that can analyse and successfully deal with this in-built level of complexity
How to apply
Please submit a CV and complete the application form at: www.cranfield.ac.uk/prospectus/app/pgappform.pdf.

Default Behaviour of Bio-Diesel Fuels

PhD Studentship
Keeping Britain on the Move in Winter: Understanding the Cold-Flow Behaviour of Bio-Diesel Fuels
Institute of Particle Science and Engineering
Applications are invited for a 42 month industrially-funded PhD research studentship to work on a project entitled "An Examination of Methyl Fatty Ester Crystallisation in Relation to Improving the Cold-flow Behaviour of Pure and Formulated Bio-diesel Fuels" under the supervision of Professor Kevin Roberts in the Institute of Particle Science and Engineering, University of Leeds. The project is funded via an industrial studentship from Infineum (a joint venture company owned 50:50 by ExxonMobil and Shell) involved in the development and manufacture of speciality petrochemical products.

You will have the opportunity to undertake work in laboratories of the industrial sponsor and will be encouraged to attend national and international training courses and conferences. You will receive a stipend of £12,600 per year, and in turn will be encouraged to contribute towards publication of work and defining opportunities within the project. You will work in a grade 5*-rated research school in the Institute of Particle Science and Engineering, one of the University's gold-star rated centres of research excellence, enjoying access to state of the art instrumentation and computation in recently refurbished laboratories.

The backdrop to the project reflects the fact that modern environmental factors, driven by global warming considerations, has seen a significant shift in recent years towards a low-carbon economy and concomitant demand for the use of more sustainable fuel sources, notably through the increased use of bio-diesel fuels. However, there are challenges to the routine use of such fuel sources, notably related their behaviour under cold weather conditions, due to the crystallisation within the fuel of waxy bio-fuel components, notably long-chain methyl fatty esters.

This project will focus around this theme aiming to develop a fundamental understanding of such deleterious crystallisation behaviour together with the concomitant impact on the flow properties of the fuel. The planned research work will involve molecular and crystallographic studies adopting surface engineering approaches for potential crystallisation control coupled to experimental studies of their crystallisation using laboratory techniques.

This studentship is only open to UK/EU applicants (due to funding body restrictions).

For further details please contact Prof. Kevin Roberts at k.j.roberts@leeds.ac.uk.

Interested candidates should send a letter of application and a detailed CV with the names and addresses of three referees to him at:

Professor Kevin J Roberts
Brotherton Professor of Chemical Engineering
Institute of Particle Science and Engineering
School of Process, Environmental & Materials Engineering
University of Leeds
Leeds, LS2 9JT, UK.

Default Optical biomedical imaging

PHD PROJECTS IN BIOPHOTONICS
Optical biomedical imaging: towards live imaging and single protein detection
The MQ Photonics at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia is one of the leading institutions in the world for photonics research. We are seeking a candidate for a postgraduate research scholarship (PhD) in the field of Biophotonics. You will explore both experimental and theoretical development of optical biomedical imaging as a part of a dynamic research team. A passion for doing good science and excellent study record are main selection criteria, whereas a range of undergraduate degrees may qualify for this postgraduate research.

Three projects are available, described below - please contact Associate Professor Andrei Zvyagin (azvyagin@ics.mq.edu.au) for more details. To apply, please supply a detailed CV and the email addresses of two academic referees.

1. Background-free optical imaging of biological macromolecules and nanoparticles
In most cases in optics, imaging resolution is limited to roughly the wavelength of light. At the same time, the optical detection sensitivity of individual particles is unlimited theoretically. It is limited practically by the ratio of wanted versus unwanted photons, called background. The better the background is suppressed, the smaller particles, e.g. proteins, are detectable. A PhD project will address realisation of this detection principle.

2. Application of multiphoton microscopy to study of collagen regeneration
Multiphoton microscopy (MPM) is a new imaging method, which produces exquisite images of live cells and biological tissue. Tightly focused ultrashort pulsed laser radiation elicits non-linear optical response in the biological matter, which is detectable and carries wealth of information.
We intend to apply MPM to image collagen-abundant tissue, such as cartilage, relying on a strong second-harmonic signal from collagen. In collaboration with the medical and laser physics researchers, we will investigate, yet mysterious, mechanisms of collagen regeneration under the exposure to the laser light. Understanding these mechanisms will have tremendous impact on the current practice of treatment of osteoarthritis and the related disease.

3. Application of luminescent nanodiamonds to intracellular imaging
Imaging at the molecular level has recently become a reality, if specific molecular sites are tagged with "optical labels", so that even an individual molecule becomes visible in the cell. These optical labels can be engineered as organic dyes, quantum dots, or luminescent nanocrystals. Our research is focused on the latter, i.e. luminescent nanodiamond (LND). LND is a diamond nanocrystal with a colour centre, which renders nanocrystal highly visible in the cell, even on the background of the cell's own fluorescence, called autofluorescence.

A PhD student will carry our research into characterisation of LNDs and LND-assisted intracellular imaging
