PhD Studentship - Warwick Medical School BMS

Title: How similar is Bacillus cereus G9241 to Bacillus anthracis?

Value: This WCPRS PhD studentship joint with DSTL (MoD) offers an annual stipend at the standard RCUK rate (£14,777 for the 2018/2019 academic year) and covers full tuition fees at the Home/EU rate for 3.5 years.

Deadline: The closing date for applications is 1st September 2018

Project: One of the most feared bacterial pathogens is Bacillus anthracis (Anthrax). Other closely related members of the genus are either commensals or pathogens of invertebrates. B.anthracis has undergone genomic degradation from a recent B. cereus ancestor, the consequence of the acquisition of mammalian virulence plasmid pX01 that locked it into a mammalian disease cycle. Interestingly the B. cereus G9241 isolate, which can cause an illness resembling inhalation anthrax, is able to flip between an ancestral insect pathogenic state and a serious human disease state. This molecular microbiology project will focus on understanding the molecular adaptations that make this possible.

Title: Warwick Collaborative Postgraduate Research Scholarship - Precision Diagnostics and Data Analytics of Electronic Health Records Temporal disease trajectories derived from Electronic Health Records (EHR) of high risk patient groups focusing on co-morbidities: identification of blood tests important for signposting journey and improve decision making.

Value: The WCPRS PhD studentship is available to Home and EU students who meet Research Council eligibility requirements based on residency. It includes full fees for the successful candidate along with a tax free maintenance allowance for 3.5 years in line with Research Council UK standard stipend (£14,777 for the year 2018/19).

Deadline: The closing date for applications is 15th August 2018 with interviews being held on 30th August 2018.

Project: There is an urgent need for re-design of the care pathways focusing on new integrated models of health delivery. This requires understanding of disease-treatment profiles of patients. Employing discovery-driven analysis of temporal disease progression patterns using data from EHRs, this project will investigate disease correlations and temporal disease progression (trajectories), especially for high risk groups of patients such as cancer and mental health patients, exhibiting higher-than-average readmission rates due to high level of co-morbidities. Analysis of lab results from blood tests will enable identification of key tests important for signposting and predicting co-morbidity journey and improve decision making. Analysis of such trajectory analyses may be useful for predicting and preventing future diseases and clinical events of individual patients.

Applicants should submit their CV and a personal statement explaining why they are suitable for this PhD studentship to Professor Dimitris Grammatopoulos on e-mail: D.Grammatopoulos@warwick.ac.uk and also apply for admission to study at the University here by the deadline above.

PhD Studentship - Warwick Manufacturing Group

Title: Modelling and understanding battery performance due to changes in the manufacturing processes

Value: This studentship offers an annual stipend of £14,553 for 3 years and covers full tuition fees and is open to Home/ EU students.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, by completing the online enquiry form .

Project: This is a challenging and unique PhD opportunity for a student with a good mathematical background interested in applying the knowledge to a rapidly growing area: battery manufacturing. Mathematical modelling of batteries is critical, for the success of such initiatives, as they allow advanced energy storage systems to be designed. The modelling approaches are however varied, as batteries are multi-scale and multi-physics devices.

PhD Studentship - Warwick Manufacturing Group

Title: Thermal Performance of Automotive Lithium ion Batteries

Value: This studentship offers an annual stipend of £20,277 which includes a £4,000 industrial top up, for 4 years and covers full tuition fees and is open to Home/EU students.

Deadline: Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, by completing the online enquiry form .

Project: This studentship focuses on investigating the thermal behaviour of Lithium-ion batteries packs. This will involve understanding automotive thermal management systems for batteries and then investigating them on individual lithium ion cells to understand the effect of the thermal load over time. This would be achieved through electrical characterisation during test and then disassembly and materials characterisation post-test. This would then extend into safety testing of automotive batteries at higher temperatures which would include thermal propagation.
