  (BBSRC DTP) Development of whole cell biocatalysts for biomass and plastic degradation
  Dr N Dixon, Prof N Scrutton, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two major societal challenges exist today i) how can we consumable more sustainably and ii) how can we minimise environmental contamination.
  (STFC DTP) Investigating the organic record of early Mars
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr R Tartese, Dr R Garwood, Dr B O'Driscoll
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Northwest Africa (NWA) 7034 and paired stones are unique martian meteorites that provide us with our first and only samples of the martian surface regolith (Agee et al.
  (STFC DTP) Using minerals analogues to understand effects of sterilisation procedures and applications for Mars Sample Return
  Research Group: Isotope Geochemistry & Planetary Science
  Dr K Joy, Dr S Nixon, Prof M Patel, Prof R Burgess
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future missions aim to collect samples from a range of planetary bodies. NASA and ESA are working on plans for a series of Mars missions to collect, transport and return rocks and soil samples to the Earth.
  Readying Miniaturized Reactors for Flow Biocatalysis
  Dr M Marques
Application Deadline: 12 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In almost all engineering sectors there has been a successful transition from batch to continuous processing. One particularly promising area for continuous processing in biochemical engineering is the biocatalytic synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and value-added chemicals.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating the metabolic alterations that initiate pre-neoplastic development in zebrafish and in humans
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr Y Feng, Dr K Burgess, Dr R Burchmore, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. “Warburg metabolism” is characterised by an increased uptake of glucose and its conversion to lactate by glycolysis under normoxia.
  EASTBIO A quantitative approach to understanding regulation of developmental genes by bivalent promoters
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr P Voigt, Dr G Sanguinetti
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Histone modifications play key roles in the regulation of gene expression. In embryonic stem cells, promoters of developmental genes carry a signature combination of histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), which is usually found at active promoters, and H3K27me3, a hallmark of repressive chromatin.
  EASTBIO Exploring the Untapped Chemical Potential of the Microbial World – a cellular and synthetic biology approach to organic synthesis
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr S Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology is revolutionising the field of chemical synthesis. Using genetically modified microorganisms this approach enables the production of compounds of industrial importance (e.g.
  EastBio Expanding enzymatic fluorination: development of artificial fluorinases
  Dr A Jarvis, Prof D O'Hagan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluorine is an important element in drug design, as it can be used to both increase the half-life of a drug and its bioavailability.
  Electrosynthesis - Exploring the Potential of Electrogenerated Radicals!
  Dr K Lam
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Electrosynthesis is a powerful tool in organic chemistry that circumvents the use of expensive and toxic reagents for the generation of reactive intermediates.
  Development of metabolomics for understanding AMR in mixed infections
  Prof R Goodacre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
