  Rheological and mechanical behaviour of fibre composite with nanobiocomposites matrix for aerospace applications
  Dr S Vahid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The applications of nanocomposite materials derived from natural biopolymer components gaining more attraction because of their renewability, biodegradability, flexibility, and their capability of novel functionalities.
  Modular design and assembly of innovative biopolymer beads as drug delivery platform
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FDA-approved polyhydroxybutyrate self-assembles in engineered bacteria and forms spherical beads of approximately 200 nm in diameter.
  Microbial Micro-Engineers
  Dr M Mazza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms occupy every crevice within global ecosystems and impact all aspects of life. However, too little is understood about their movement within physical crannies, and how they can restructure these microspaces for their own benefit.
  Understanding cellulose synthesis in plants
  Prof S Turner, Prof S High
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics derived from fossil fuels. One possibility is to develop novel plastics based on polymers from plants.
  Multiscale mechanics: folded globular proteins as hydrogel Lego bricks
  Dr L Dougan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins are bionanomachines. These workhorses of the cell are responsible for a vast array of biological functions. Acting in isolation or as part of larger, often complex machinery, they perform their function through structural and mechanical changes.
  Synthetic complexes of the histidine brace
  Prof P Walton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cellulose is the world’s most abundant biopolymer. 1011 kg is generated every year, equivalent in energy to 670 billion barrels of oil, some 20 times the current annual global oil consumption.
  PhD Scholarship Biopolymers for tissue repair
  Dr SFR Hinkley, Dr S Carnachan
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ferrier Research Institute has a full scholarship to undertake a PhD programme working on biopolymer isolation and complex carbohydrate analysis.
