  PhD in the Biosynthesis and Enzymology of Fluorine Containing Metabolites in Streptomyces Bacteria
  Prof D O'Hagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the O’Hagan group has had a focus on the biosynthesis of fluorine containing natural products and the identification of a fluorination enzyme, ‘the fluorinase’, from Streptomyces cattleya.[1] Fluorine is very rare in nature, and in those rare cases where an organism can form a C-F bond from fluoride ion, then the enzymology is unique and interesting.
  High Pressure Enzymology
  Dr L Schneider
Application Deadline: 31 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pressure (up to 400 bar) significantly alters the thermal stability and kinetics of enzyme reactions.
  Evolutionary roots of allosteric regulation of enzymes
  Dr L Pedro Carvalho, Prof F Fraternali
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A joint Crick-Imperial College London funded PhD position for the 2019 programme between the labs of Luiz Pedro Carvalho and Franc Fraternali.
  Breaking the rule: blocking protein degradation by N-terminal tagging as a strategy to cure disease
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr CM Czekster
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background and project details. Proteins in a cell can last less than a minute to several days. Not only does the cell need to control protein levels but it must also eliminate proteins that are misfolded or abnormal in any way.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Mechanisms of regulation of the phosphoinositide 3-kinase family of enzymes
  Dr R Williams
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our research programme aims at establishing mechanisms of regulation of an ancient family of giant kinases involved in cellular homeostasis.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
  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.
  Getting Dirty with Soil Phosphorus (BREARLEYU20DTP)
  Dr C Brearley, Dr J Todd
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

A growing world population demands that agricultural production is managed sustainability. A major threat is our over-reliance for fertilizer on rock phosphate that is a dwindling and geo-politically vulnerable resource.
  Developing Bacterial Nanowires for Light-Driven Catalysis (BUTTU20DTP)
  Prof J Butt, Dr T Clarke
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by natural photosynthesis and addressing limitations of purely synthetic approaches, this PhD project aims to provide proof of principle for light-driven chemical synthesis through the design and assembly of novel inorganic:biological hybrid materials.
