Usc Fully Funded PhD International Awards

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship in ecology in USA. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

We have fully funded positions available for two outstanding PhD candidates, who will work towards evaluating the potential of restorative aquaculture to reverse human impacts on coastal marine environments, through the co-culture of seaweed and shellfish within the Moreton Bay marine park. The scholarships align with a FRDC funded project on the economic, environmental and social benefits of aquaculture.

Southeast Queensland is home to several large, urbanised estuaries that fall within multi-zone marine parks. This region is also one of the fastest growing in Australia. Rapid population growth creates a challenge for wastewater utilities to deal with the increase in nutrient loads. At the same time, aquaculture producers face reduced productivity due to environmental change, disease and algal blooms, and challenges associated with the business risks presented by monoculture. Aboriginal communities and corporations in the region are also investigating new opportunities to diversify income through sustainable projects that provide benefits for the environment and people.

Seaweed production offers a unique and timely solution to address some of the economic, environmental and social challenges in southeast Queensland. Seaweed farming is a 'no-feed' form of aquaculture; it is zero waste and compatible with shellfish farming and marine park zoning. Seaweeds grow quickly and strip nutrients from the water column, draw down carbon dioxide and can remove pollutants such as heavy metals. At the right scale, seaweed farming will reverse environmental change.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated academic excellence in ecology, biology or a related discipline relative to career stage and a strong commitment to improving the world with science. The ideal candidate will have the capacity to work with a diverse range of people and stakeholders as part of a large, multidisciplinary team. Strong quantitative, statistical and programming skills (preferably R) are desirable and the candidate must have fieldwork experience and an interest in broader communication of research findings.

PhD Studentship Industrial Strategy to Deliver Absolute Zero at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position. Applications should be sent before September 16, 2020.

The UK (UK scholarships) has recently had a passive approach to Industrial Strategy, largely based on the belief that the market will find the best solutions, so government intervention is not required. That has led to a rapid decline in industrial production in the UK, and hence limited the opportunity to capture value from UK innovation. However, our recent work in the UK FIRES programme, summarised in the ‘Absolute Zero’ report that was debated in the House of Lords on 6 February 2020, reveals an extraordinary opportunity: a proactive national industrial strategy could stimulate rapid domestic growth in the industries we will certainly need to meet our legal zero emissions commitments. Our emissions targets are cutting edge, and could be the basis for a significant industrial renaissance, provided government policy is sufficiently pro-active to support the private sector in rapid re-tooling and transformation.

Based on comparative evidence of governmental interventions in industrial strategy in the UK and elsewhere, and in collaboration with the academic and industrial partners of UK FIRES, this PhD will attempt to develop a model of the features of government actions that are politically acceptable, industrially meaningful and compatible with zero emissions. The aim of the PhD is to provide the basis for a stream of politically achievable recommendations from the UK FIRES programme to support profitable responses to the zero emissions commitment.

Research Objectives include: -A comprehensive review of industrial strategy in the UK and at least two comparative countries with related contexts but different outcomes (eg Germany, Finland or South Korea). -Two or more policy case studies where past policy has had little effect in the UK but more effect elsewhere, to allow interview-based evaluation of opportunities for different approaches. -Pro-active work with the UK FIRES industrial partners, to frame new approaches to policy in priority areas. Specific Case Studies could include: -The Green Investment Bank, and opportunities for reducing the cost of capital for large industrial investments in new processes fit for zero emissions production -Organic food, and other cross-border standards, as a basis for exploring how new forms of trade agreement could create a level playing field for zero-emission innovations in the UK without facing cost disadvantages with high-emitting trading partners -Net Present Value assessment of policy actions to test their robustness to external change such as pandemics or climate impacts.

Applicants should have at least a good 2.1 degree in a subject related to industrial strategy and policy. This could include economics, policy, engineering or management. Prior experience of industrial strategy or policy dialogue would be a significant advantage.

To apply for this studentship, candidates must apply through the University’s Graduate Admissions application portal not later than 16 September 2020. The portal is at: www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/courses/directory/egegpdpeg and there is a 65 fee for PhD applications.

If you would like an informal discussion about the position, please send your CV and a letter setting out your suitability to “allwood-office@eng.cam.ac.uk” but note that this does not constitute an application. We will not respond to enquiries sent by applicants who are ineligible for the funding.

The aim of the program is to fill evidence gaps in the design and implementation of national priorities for blood, and to provide econometric and health informatic modelling of health practices and systems. The use of blood products has many interesting economic aspects. Blood as a resource derives its therapeutic value from its ability to be donated, stored and transfused to treat illness. This value gives rise to a market for blood that can be separated into its demand and supply components. The supply side of the market concerns the collection, preparation, distribution and storage of blood products ahead of transfusion. The demand side concerns the prescription of blood products to patients to alleviate ill health. Potential projects within the program include using the Massive Transfusion Registry and other large datasets to analyse the causes and consequences of national variation in access to blood products on system performance; or the efficient use of novel blood products for major haemorrhage and blood cancers. As part of these projects thePhD Candidate further will develop transferable skills in health economics and applied econometrics.

The Centre for Health Economics is an internationally renowned institution that contributes to academic research and public policy (public policy scholarships) in the economics of health and health care. As a student in the centre you will be part of a team of academics and researchers at the cutting-edge of important international research, using the latest methods. We offer excellent research facilities including a dedicated student study space, a behavioural laboratory, high quality computing facilities, and frequent seminars. Monash is one of the top 100 universities in the world, ranked top in health economics in the Asia Pacific. The Business School contains both a leading Economics Department and a distinct Department of Econometrics and Business Statistics with an international reputation in theoretical and applied econometrics.

The project would suit someone with a strong research background in economics, econometrics, statistics, health services research, or health economics. It is NOT expected that the individual will have knowledge about the use blood products. Applicants must have an excellent academic track record with a first class honours degree or master's degree (with research component) in a relevant quantitative field (e.g. economics, econometrics and statistics).

3 Year PhD Studentship in Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing Predictive Modelling and Design Optimisation of Erodible Drug Delivery Systems

Applicants are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship in pharmacy at The University of Nottingham. Applications are invited up to October 20, 2020.

In collaboration with Warwick and Birmingham Universities, as well as with the School of Pharmacy (Pharmacy scholarships) and Physics at Nottingham, the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/research/groups/cfam/index.aspx will continue a deeper exploration the area of multifunctional AM through the recently awarded Programme Grant, Enabling Next Generation Additive Manufacturing.

The programme vision is to establish controlled next generation multifunctional AM and translate this to industry and researchers. Initially focussing on novel electronic and pharmaceutical/healthcare applications, the aim is to move beyond single material AM by exploiting the potential to deposit multiple materials contemporaneously for the delivery of spatially resolved function and structure in three dimensions.

Additive Manufacturing / 3D printing allows for bespoke production of devices that are tailored to patient need. However, this can only be realised if coupled with effective models and design protocols that capture the phenomenological behaviour linking material, structure and drug release. This behaviour is relatively simple in the case of, for example, simple diffusion release, but where more complex elution occurs, such as when non Fickian behaviour is present, and devise erosion and release predominates. We propose to use finite element based models to describe the mass transport and elution of small and large drug molecules during erosion of the tablet / implant / depot structure.

International PhD Thesis Position Cemef

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship in polymers in France. There is no application deadline for this position.

Due to the growth of population, the demand for textile products is increasing, leading, as a consequence, to the increase of their waste. Currently, most of textile waste is either incinerated or landfilled. Modern textiles are multicomponent materials making their recycling challenging. Innovative solutions are needed to help building circular economy

The goal of this work is to make new high-added value materials from waste textiles based on mixed natural (cotton, wool) and synthetic (polyester) components. The components will be separated and new high-added value porous materials, bio-aerogels, will be made.

The work is at the frontier of polymer chemical physics and materials' processing. It will involve the use of various techniques, including formulation, rheology, optical and electron microscopies, characterisation of solutions, blends and porous materials, and the understanding of thermodynamics of mixed solvents for cellulose and wool dissolution.

The experimental work will be performed in CEMEF (2/3) and in RAPSODEE (1/3) laboratories in close collaboration with CTP in what concerns theoretical thermodynamics. CEMEF is world leader in the development of biomass-based materials, in particular, in bio-aerogels. RAPSODEE is expert in shaping and characterization of divided solids/powders and CTP is a recognized expert in thermophysical properties and phase diagram determination, especially in solvent screening.

Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a postdoctoral position in genomics. Candidates are welcome before August 31, 2020.

An opportunity is available for a Postdoctoral Scientist to join the group of Dr. Michael Imbeault in the Department of Genetics, Cambridge – https://www.gen.cam.ac.uk/research-groups/research-groups/imbeault. Our research is focused on characterizing the role of KRAB zinc finger proteins, the largest family of DNA binding factors in the human genome. While many of the projects in our lab relate to their function in transposable element regulation and the evolution of gene regulatory networks, this project is based on a new and exciting hypothesis related to genome stability.

There is emergent evidence that heterochromatin is a signal that is used locally to decide which pathway is used to repair DNA damage. The project is to probe this phenomenon at KRAB zinc finger targeted loci in the genome, as these proteins induce heterochromatin locally. The long-term aim is to understand the implications for human health – for example, if genomic stability is impacted in individuals with mutations in various KRAB zinc finger proteins or at specific binding sites they target. Through the project, the candidate will have the opportunity to develop a strong expertise in epigenetics and transposable elements.

The candidate is expected to undertake cutting edge research, acting as a lead on the project. The duties/responsibilities of this post include – working efficiently to reach objectives in a timely manner, keeping up to date with the latest literature, writing scientific reports on the research performed, collaborating with others on research projects in the lab, delivering research presentations and contributing to the smooth running of the Imbeault laboratory.

The successful candidate will be involved in the use and development of methods to quantify repair pathway choice and rare mutation profiles developing over time at precise genomic loci following genetic manipulations. The project requires a combination of various approaches, including the use of “traffic-light” reporter systems, deep sequencing, CRISPR/Cas9 and genetic KO mutants of KRAB zinc finger genes we have available in the lab. Although a plan has been designed to answer the question efficiently, the candidate will have the opportunity to provide their input and bring their own set of ideas and expertise.

We particularly welcome applications from women and candidates from a BME background for this vacancy as they are currently under-represented at this level in our University.
