  The influence of a low carbohydrate high fat diet on exercise and performance
  Dr O Spendiff
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current and long standing nutrition guidance in the UK and most other countries advocate that carbohydrates are essential for the maintenance of health and especially for any individual engaging in regular physical activity or sport performance.
  New carbohydrate-based surfactants from Australian Canola oil
  Dr B Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 29 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project seeks to utilise Australian-produced canola oil and other carbohydrate renewable feedstock for the synthesis of new surfactants with a range of key applications as detergents, quaternary esters, and emulsifiers.
  Carbohydrate analysis for biomedical applications.
  Dr S Allman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Changes in the patterns of carbohydrates produced by the cell can provide insights into disease states, revealing perturbations and differences in cellular metabolic processes.
  Inhibitors and probes for carbohydrate-active enzymes
  Dr L Willems
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of chemical biology aims to design and synthesize chemical tools (such as inhibitors, substrate mimics, or enzyme probes) to answer fundamental questions in biology.
  Development of immunoassays for specific classical and lectin pathway activation markers
  Prof Z Prohaszka, Prof R Würzner
Application Deadline: 10 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Infections and various immune-inflammation mediated conditions are characterized by the activation of the complement system. Antibodies (immune complexes) activate the classical pathway whereas repetitive carbohydrate structures give rise to the initiation of the lectin pathway.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
  Prebiotics and synbiotics for human health - converting biomass into functional food ingredients
  Prof R Rastall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prof. Rastall is interested in research in the area of prebiotic oligosaccharides, synbiotic combinations with probiotics and the impact of structure on the gut fermentation of carbohydrates.
  Automated synthesis of oligosaccharides
  Dr M A Fascione
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates play important roles in a number of biological processes including tumour metastasis, bacterial and viral recognition, and the immunological response.
