  (BBSRC DTP) Probing the chemistry of the prenylated flavin cofactor: Synthesis, mechanistic probes, and biocatalysis
  Prof D Procter, Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This cross-disciplinary project fuses chemical synthesis and mechanism, structural biology, computational (bio)chemistry and cutting-edge biotechnology in a highly innovative approach to the development of new biocatalytic processes of interest to industry and addresses the BBSRC’s strategic research priority, Bioenergy and Industrial Biotechnology.
  Developing new methods for counting and identifying microplastics in environmental samples (MAYESAU19SF)
  Dr A G Mayes, Dr G Malin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
As people become ever more aware of the enormous global problem of plastic litter, there has been a corresponding rapid increase in concern about microplastics accumulating in the environment.
  Validating “undruggable” or orphan cancer targets by combining fragment based screening peptidomimetic chemistry, phage display, structural biology and cell biology.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof M Auer, Dr J Arulanandam
Application Deadline: 13 December 2018
In comparison to prominent and successful target classes like GPCRs, the success rate in targeting protein – protein interactions (PPIs) is very low.
  Understanding the mechanism of TRPC1/4/5 channel activation by the natural product tonantzitlolone
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr R.S. Bon, Dr S Muench, Dr M Wright
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The six human TRPC proteins form tetrameric cation channels that play key roles in cellular signal transduction/integration, and their implication in human disease (including anxiety disorders, renal/breast cancer, heart failure and kidney disease) has led specific TRPC channels to emerge as potential therapeutic targets in both academia and industry.
  Optimal search strategies for automated, robotic material discovery
  Dr J Fearnley, Prof A Cooper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2019
This position will remain open until a suitable candidate has been found. New functional materials are central to society but they can be hard to find in the laboratory because of the astronomical search space that is defined by the available atomic and molecular building blocks.
  (BBSRC DTP) Biofuel synthesis from enzymes: how do charge distributions affect product control?
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
One of this project ‘s strengths is the novel computational technology it introduces to the paramount field of biocatalysis. Any quantum mechanical insight into enzymes is initially holistic in character, that is, energies and electron densities are calculated for the whole systems.
  Opening up New Oxidation States in Metallocene Chemistry Across the Periodic Table
  Dr D P Mills, Dr N Chilton
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
An EPSRC DTG-sponsored PhD studentship is available for an outstanding and ambitious chemist to undertake research in the field of synthetic organometallic chemistry with the Mills group at Manchester.
  Environmental maternal effects and intergenerational inheritance
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr R Allaby
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
Project Highlights. Mechanisms by which organisms rapidly respond to sudden environmental changes. Mother senses environmental stress signals to produce stress-resistant progeny.
  De-novo building protein models into Electron Microscopy maps at intermediate resolutions
  Dr K D Cowtan, Prof A A Antson, Dr J Agirre
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
A PhD position is available to work in the group of Dr Kevin Cowtan on computational methods for automatic building of protein structures.
  How can we reduce the numbers of people exposed to particulate matter in the UK?
  Prof M Evans, Prof A C Lewis
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Air quality in the UK has received increasing attention over the last decade. The government is drafting a new air quality strategy (
