PhD Scholarship: Carrier lifetimes in silicon solar cells measured by muon spin spectroscopy

Photovoltaic installations have recently reached the terawatt level and this is almost entirely due to the success of silicon-based solar cell technologies. Silicon PV is low-cost and stable for 25+ years, and cell efficiencies are unrivalled by other mass-market single-junction technologies. Improvements in silicon cells will have a real-world impact on climate change mitigation and improving energy supply security.

PhD Scholarship: Mathematical and Computational Modelling of High Flow Nasal Oxygen Therapy

An exciting opportunity exists to join the Interdisciplinary Collaboration in Systems Medicine (ICSM) Research Group as a doctoral candidate. Working with an international team of clinicians and engineers, you will develop mathematical models of high-flow nasal oxygen therapy (HFNOT), an advanced form of non-invasive respiratory support that is increasingly widely used in the treatment of acute hypoxic respiratory failure (AHRF). Models will be coded in Matlab and incorporated into the ICSM Cardiopulmonary simulator, a world-leading simulation platform that has been in continuous development by our group for over 25 years [1-5].

PhD Scholarship: Model-informed development and dose rationale for combination therapy in oncology

To develop a modelling framework to predict and translate the pharmacodynamic interaction in oncology for both tumour growth and safety (e.g. thrombocytopenia). The modelling will provide a better understanding and translation of the nature of the interaction of drug combinations in preclinical experiments. The proposed model-based approach will also inform more informative experimental protocols for the ranking of drug combinations based on the underlying pharmacodynamic interactions.

Scholarship: Design a novel fast optical technique for structured catalysts in plasma flow reactors

The primary objective of this research is to develop a method allowing to obtain reliable temperature and concentration maps for key components inside the chemical reactor. Then the catalytic reaction will be studied in real-time to determine the reactant conversion and product yields/selectivity as a function of several process parameters (flow rate, catalyst type, pressure etc.).

Exploring the link between Arts Interventions and Degenerative Brain Conditions

Tuesday 26 July 2022, 5.00pm - 8.30pm, Telegraph Hotel, Coventry City Centre

Can making and experiencing art help maintain a healthy brain? How might art be used to help people with degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s or dementia?

We know that great art can stir the emotions, but now it looks like it can actually improve brain function, (raise serotonin levels and impact on your nervous system). And these benefits don't just come from making art, they also occur by experiencing art!

In this free event, hear from our fantastic line up of researchers (in rehabilitation medicine and neuroscience) from the University of Warwick who will be joined by local artists, authors, care home workers and representatives from local charities. All the speakers will ignite discussion around the link between the Arts and the brain, and how the Arts can be used to improve the quality of lives of those that have been affected by degenerative brain conditions.

Raise 2022 Committee Recruitment

DEADLINE SOON

Opportunity to continue an award-winning charity initiative in Warwick

Raise is an award-winning student charity initiative which aims to change the way students think about charity, encouraging students to take a positive and deliberate approach towards giving. Nationally, we have raised over £380,000 for the Against Malaria Foundation in just 5 years by encouraging hundreds of students to celebrate the end of the academic year by making a personally significant donation to charity. Last year we started a chapter at Warwick, and in our first year, we raised over £3000 as well as establishing the foundations of an intimate and passionate community!

Now you have the chance to build on these foundations this year! We’re looking for a team of talented and passionate students (with skills and interest to work in areas such as leadership, sponsorship, publicity, events, and fundraising) to shape and grow this exciting project, forming a committee for the next academic year. You’ll gain valuable skills across the board, make an impressive addition to your CV, and have the chance to partake in an exciting project with the potential for huge long-term impact long after you’ve moved on.

The committee positions offer a range of time commitments, so please apply if you have any interest at all in the project! For more details on the committee roles please view https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gOSWU6sKa77Us2VBflNYzRCv4j3u7UQsdKyNm4SajjE/edit?usp=sharingLink opens in a new window

Role descriptions for the Raise 2022 Committee Introduction Raise is run primarily by our committee, which meets weekly and is responsible for everything that we do. As an indication of the commitment level, the current committee estimates they spend an average of 3-7 hours a week working on Ra...

Research Invitation

As a medical student, the topic of organ donation is one that has been discussed a few times during my education. However, I would like to explore if it is the same for students studying other courses and investigate whether sciences-based students and arts-based students are likely to have a differing understanding and opinions of organ donation. Since English law changed in May 2020 to an opt-out rather than opt-in system and that there are currently, 5972 people awaiting a transplant in the UK, the topic seems as important as ever.

I am looking for participants to complete an anonymous, online questionnaire to investigate students current understanding of organ donation (i.e. what can be donated and who can donate). Additionally, I am exploring scenarios around life-sustaining treatments and investigations necessary for successful transplants and if this is ethically acceptable to participants.

This has been approved by the BSREC ethics committee.

If you would like to take part, then please read the information leaflet attached to this email. Alternatively, please use the link below to access the cover sheet and questionnaire:
