  Engineering a water retention system for plants based on novel polysaccharide sulfotransferases from red algae
  Dr E A Yates
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Effective water use is a major challenge for agriculture. In is this project we will investigate new routes for water capture and retention by engineering soil microorganisms and plants to produce sulphated polysaccharides that are similar to those from red algae.
  Functional magnetic nanomaterials as the next generation of bioproducts for healthcare applications
  Dr A Fernandez-Castane
Applications accepted all year round
A three-year project for doctoral studies is offered to support the application of highly motivated graduates willing to pursue their PhD studies.
  Evolutionary algorithms for engineering applications: developing computational methods and optimisation frameworks to solve engineering optimisation problems
  Research Group: Mechanical and Process Engineering
  Dr JP Li
Applications accepted all year round
This highly multidisciplinary PhD project will develop computational methods and optimisation frameworks to solve engineering optimisation problems.
  Regulation of clostridial solvent production by quorum sensing
  Dr K Winzer
Applications accepted all year round
Second Supervisor. Ying Zhang. Background. The genus Clostridium comprises a large group of strictly anaerobic and metabolically diverse spore-forming bacteria.
  How do antibiotic-producing bacteria decide when to synthesise antibiotics, and how much to make?
  Dr H O'Hare, Dr G Mukamolova
Applications accepted all year round
Actinobacteria are well-known as secondary metabolite producers and hence are of high interest commercially for drug discovery and for production of agrochemcials and human and animal therapeutics.
  How do antibiotic-producing bacteria decide when to synthesise antibiotics, and how much to make?
  Dr H O'Hare, Dr G Mukamolova
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Actinobacteria are well-known as producers of bioactive secondary metabolites including antibiotics, insecticides and immunosuppressants.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This is an interdisciplinary research project in Industrial Biotechnology, especially in the emerging area of Synthetic Biology applied to antimicrobial resistance.
  Mucosal Vaccines - using Bacillus subtilis spores to develop vaccines and adjuvants against disease
  Prof S Cutting
Applications accepted all year round
Heat stable bacterial spores are being used as novel mucosal vaccines. Spores of Bacillus subtilis have been used successfully as both vaccines and adjuvants against a number of diseases.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Investigating the role of oxidative stress and anti-angiogenic factors in preeclampsia utilising physiological and 3D-cell models.
  Prof C Murdoch, Dr C Henderson
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Preeclampsia occurs in 3-8% of all pregnancies causing rapid hypertension and kidney dysfunction in pregnant woman which is difficult to predict and untreatable.
  Plant metabolism and remediation of the explosive and pollutant 2,4,6- trinitrotoluene (TNT)
  Prof N Bruce, Prof K Denby
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Explosive compounds used in munitions are highly toxic and the potential for. progressive accumulation of such compounds in soil, plants and groundwater is.
