PhD Studentship in Statistical Physics of Molecular Evolution (3.5 years)

A 3.5 year PhD position is available from October 2024 to work under the supervision of Kabir Husain. This is an exciting opportunity to join an interdisciplinary research group that uses tools from theoretical physics to analyse, predict, and design evolutionary fates in biology. Read more

Chemical evolution of artificial oligonucleotide catalysts for ultra-specific RNA detection and knockdown

Beyond information storage, single-stranded nucleic acids can adopt complex 3D structures with biochemical activities, e.g. antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs), chemical antibodies (aptamers) and catalysts (ribozymes, DNAzymes). Read more

Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology

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. Read more

Development of a new class of biosensors with unique capabilities

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
The sensor industry sees great promise in whole-cell-based biosensors, but because it relies on silicon-based microelectronics it requires biosensors with electrogenic outputs. Read more

Engineering Developable Biopharmaceuticals

The School of Molecular and Cellular Biology invites applications from prospective postgraduate researchers who wish to commence study for a PhD in the academic year 2023/24. Read more

Where has all of the carbon gone? Understanding the molecular mechanisms of long-term soil carbon capture

Soils, while unglamorous, form the basis of the terrestrial biosphere and are ultimately the source of the majority of the food that we eat, yet fundamental aspects of how soils form and how they store carbon are poorly understood. Read more

Engineering Protein Nanocompartments for Biotechnological Applications

Protein nanocompartments have board applications as catalytic nanoreactors and as carriers for therapeutics delivery. They are self-assembled protein-based supramolecules that have spherical and hollow architectures. Read more
