Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology
Agency for Science, Technology and Research, Singapore
Position Description

We are seeking an enthusiastic and highly motivated candidate to join our laboratory studying how metabolism is regulated by gut-brain axis. The PhD position is fully funded by A*STAR SINGA program
Metabolism is regulated by both peripheral and central nervous system, elucidating how the gut-brain axis is influenced and regulate metabolic process is our key research interest. To this end, we use cutting-edge techniques to characterize the genetic and functional changes in mouse gut-brain axis. These approaches include (but are not limited to) single cell sequencing, metabolomics, proteomics, in vivo imaging, whole brain imaging and systems neuroscience methods.

Skills and Qualifications
B.S. or M.S. in biology, neuroscience, molecular biology, genetics, physics or related discipline
Strong work ethic and ability to design, carry out and analyze independent projects
Preferred skills include programing or data science skills

Imperial College London Institute of Chemical Biology

Developing new technologies to monitor translocation of chemicals in plant leaf

Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
Applications accepted all year round
About the Project
This project is sponsored by the Institute of Chemical Biology EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training and BASF

Professor Marina Kuimova (Department of Chemistry, ICL)

Dr Markus Rueckel (BASF)

Dr Nick Brooks (Department of Chemistry, ICL)

The effectiveness of pesticides (including herbicides, fungicides and insecticides) for crop protection crucially depends on the permeability of the formulation’s active ingredient across various leaf layers and membranes. Chemical adjuvants are often used to soften the top wax layer of the leaf and enable herbicide transport across this protective barrier. In practice the link between active ingredient uptake, wax softness and/or permeability and the effectiveness of a herbicide is very challenging to measure. Engineering effective adjuvants and understanding the gains and losses in efficacy are, therefore, significant agrotech challenges.

This project is a collaboration between BASF and the Institute of Chemical Biology EPSTC Centre for Doctoral Training, and will develop a suite of novel methods to measure wax softening and permeability in two complementary ways:

direct imaging of permeability of highly controllable wax barrier in droplet interface bilayer tool; and,
via directly imaging of wax viscosity using environmentally sensitive molecular rotors and advanced optical microscopy.
Recruitment will continue until the post is filled.

The entry requirement is a degree in the physical sciences with a minimum 2.1 or above (or equivalent).

Building a concept for hydrogen-tolerant alloys

Prof Michael Preuss
Applications accepted all year round
Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)
About the Project
Supervisors: Professor Michael Preuss (Monash)

Application deadline: accepting applications immediately for a planned PhD commencement March/April 2023

Fully Funded PhD Project: open to all nationalities

About the project

With the anticipated transition from natural gas to hydrogen to combat climate change, new challenges for engineering materials are created. Today, the mechanical properties of most engineering alloys degrade quickly in a hydrogen environment, known as hydrogen embrittlement, requiring the development of new engineering materials concepts for an infrastructure to safely store, transport and combust hydrogen.

This project will explore a new concept of creating hydrogen reservoirs within an engineering alloy to store the picked-up hydrogen without affecting the mechanical properties. To explore this concept, we will utilise well-known two-phase titanium alloys where the minority beta-phase can be utilised as a reservoir. The mechanical performance and phase-specific properties will be studied using novel in-situ loading methodologies. This will be achieved by undertaking loading experiments inside electron microscopes and at large-scale research facilities (for example,,

The project is part of a collaboration with researchers from the University New South Wales, Sydney, and TIMET, a large titanium manufacturer based in the UK and the US. The PhD candidate will have the opportunity to present their work and interact with the industrial partner and other companies due to the very high industrial interest in this field of research. In addition, the candidate will have the opportunity to undertake one-week experiments at international facilities in Europe or the US.

Interested candidates:

This project is open to students of any nationality although the ability to obtain a student visa to enter Australia is required. The candidate should have a 1st class Undergraduate or Masters degree (or equivalent) in Materials Science and Engineering, Metallurgy or a related discipline. A strong background in metallurgy, microstructural characterisation and/or mechanical testing and/or physical science is advantageous.

To express an interest please provide: (1) a curriculum vitae (CV) including your academic transcripts, (2) a cover letter summarising your research interests and suitability for the position, and (3) the contact details of two referees.

Please send to: Professor Michael Preuss – [email protected]

Funding Notes:

This is a fully funded PhD project of 3.5 yrs duration. Reasonable relocation costs will be provided as well as student healthcare coverage for non-Australian citizens. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to participate in an international conference and a domestic conference as part of their candidature.
