  Discovery of new drug leads from under-explored marine microorganisms (PhDCEPS192002)
  Dr M Rateb
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from under-explored environments such as the deep seas and cold seas have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with diverse and potent biological activity.
  Master by Research: Gregarine apicomplexan parasites in freshwater invertebrates
  Dr S Rueckert, Dr J Dodd
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

PROJECT DESCRIPTION. Gregarine apicomplexans are micro-eukaryotic parasites that are found in almost every group of terrestrial, freshwater and marine invertebrates (Leander 2008; Desportes & Schrével 2013).
  PhD position in Environmental Effects of Nanoplastics in Freshwater Ecosystems
  Dr K Simon, Dr M Kah
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD position addressing the environmental effects of nanoplastics in freshwater ecosystems is available in the School of Environment at the University of Auckland, New Zealand.
  Analysis and Treatment of Orthopaedic Pin Site Infections
  Dr J McEvoy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pin site infections are a major complication of external fixation of fractures, and bacterial biofilms are known to form on the pin surface.1 This project, in collaboration with Dr Shobana Dissanayeke (RHUL) and St Peter’s Hospital, Chertsey, will investigate bacterial biofilms that have been obtained from percutaneous pins used in orthopaedic fixation frames.
  *EASTBIO* Exploring the biotechnological potential of GH68 family fructosyltransferases from evolutionary diverse haloarchaea
  Dr S MacNeill, Dr T Gloster
Application Deadline: 13 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Bioscience for Renewable Resources and Clean Growth. Fructans such as inulins and levans are fructose-based oligo- and polysaccharides derived from sucrose that have found use in a variety of industrial, agricultural and healthcare applications, most notably as prebiotic dietary supplements [1, 2].
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Clove Production, Crop Diversity and Biodiversity
  Prof T Caro
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Cloves are central to Pemba Island, Tanzania, sometimes grown as a monoculture, but also with native and introduced species.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Function and development of superhydrophilic slippery plant surfaces
  Dr U Bauer
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. The trapping surfaces of carnivorous pitcher plants are unusually wettable and turn extremely slippery for insects when wet.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: How can farming methods help to mitigate climate change?
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Global temperatures are likely to increase by 1.5°C compared to pre-industrial levels by 2030-2052.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Identifying DNA sequences in crops with the potential to reduce soil erosion
  Prof C S Grierson
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. We wish to understand how plants help hold roots and soil together. This is important because crops have major effects on soil erosion rates and the fertility of land in cultivation.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Light control of leaf senescence
  Prof K Franklin
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Leaf senescence reduces the quality and postharvest shelf life of crops. Delaying this process is therefore a key objective for reducing waste in the food chain.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Map the gap – making palm oil more sustainable by mapping yield gaps across tropical landscapes
  Dr T Jucker
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. When it comes to producing vegetable oil, oil palm is king. Up to 10 times more productive than rival crops, today oil palm accounts for one third of the global supply of fats and oils.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: Re-engineering peroxisome movement in plants
  Dr I Sparkes
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. The growing global population requires the development of novel strategies to sustainably increase food production.
  FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT: The gene regulatory logic of plant stem cell function
  Dr J Harrison
Application Deadline: 17 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

FULLY FUNDED MASTERS BY RESEARCH PROJECT. Plant shape is patterned by the activity of stem cells in the growing shoot tips and is a major productivity and yield determinant.
