  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.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  Chemical glycobiology: new methods for stereoselective and automated glycosylations in the synthesis of biologically relevant carbohydrate probes
  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.
  Development of chemical biology tools to study mammalian O-mannosylation pathways
  Dr L Willems, Prof G Davies
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.
  Chemoenzymatic approaches to explore polysaccharide structure-property relationships
  Dr G J Miller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Polysaccharides are carbohydrate architectures containing multiple units of common monosaccharide precursors that are assembled into linear and branched chains where they constitute around 80% of biomass.
  PhD Student in Organic/Medicinal Chemistry (New Antibiotics)
  Dr A Titz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Helmholtz Association is the largest research organisation in Germany with over 40.000 employees. The Helmholtz Institute for Pharmaceutical Research Saarland (HIPS) was founded between the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research (HZI) and Saarland University in 2009.
  Dietary fibres and cardiometabolic health (Ref: SF20/APP/BROWNLEE4)
  Dr I Brownlee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The term “dietary fibre” refers to a spectrum of indigestible carbohydrates, mainly of plant origin that have been linked to a range of health benefits.
  Influence of nutritional intervention on antisocial behaviour in young people (Ref: SF20/APP/YOUNG)
  Dr J Young
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Evidence supports the idea that poor diet can lead to antisocial behaviour and work by Gesch et al (2002) has shown that supplementing prisoner’s diets with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids can lead to a reduction in antisocial behaviour.
  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.
  An integrated approach to understanding effects of Candida albicans on cerebral functions
  Dr M Hamann, Prof N Hartell
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Candida albicans is a common member of the human gut flora detected in the gastrointestinal tract and mouth in 40–60% of healthy adults.
  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.
  Probing protein-substrate interactions for enzymatic biomass degradation
  Dr L Ciano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dr Luisa Ciano (https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/chemistry/people/luisa.ciano). Application deadline. Open until filled. Starting date.
  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.
  Comparative analysis of carbon assimilation pathways in key species of marine phytoplankton
  Dr T Tonon, Dr L Mackinder
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seas and oceans cover more than 70% of our planet, contribute to half of the primary production on Earth, and are responsible for cycling half of the carbon fixed by living organisms.
  The molecular basis of the success of bacterial pathogens.
  Dr M van der Woude, Prof G H Thomas
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The success of a bacterial species depends on its ability to grow and survive in a changing and potentially hostile environment. This requires adaptation at both the single cell and population level.
