  Streptomyces venezuelae a next-generation cell-factory for synthetic biology
  Dr S Moore
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
Streptomyces venezuelae a next-generation cell-factory for synthetic biology. Synthetic biology is beginning to explore new cell-factories for opportunities including biofuels and drugs.
  Towards new antibacterial drugs to treat infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria: identification and characterization of novel natural product antibiotics
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round
The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared antimicrobial drug resistance one of the greatest problems currently facing human health, and the situation is especially grave in the case of infections caused by bacterial pathogens.
  (A*STAR) Awakening natural product biosynthetic gene clusters for novel compound discovery using systems and synthetic biology
  Prof E Takano, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering.
  Lowering reuse costs by reducing fouling on immersed structures - National Decommissioning Centre
  Prof M Jaspars, Prof F Kuepper
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
Fouling on marine immersed structures is a multi-billion pound issue for the offshore industry, requiring mechanical removal of foulants.
  Targeting the P2X7 purinergic receptor in melanoma (STOKESLU19SF)
  Dr L Stokes, Dr C Morris
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
There is much research into trying to regain control of cell proliferation or cell death (apoptosis) in cancer. Different strategies exist to do this and a multitude of individual receptor targets are being identified in tumour cell lines and primary cells.
  Is the bonding in ionic liquids ordinary or exotic: using molecular dynamics to shed light on these complex systems
  Dr C Evans, Prof A P Abbott
Application Deadline: 21 January 2019
One of the key technologies developed at the University is that of deep eutectic solvents, DESs. The behaviour of solutes in a largely ionic medium governs their reactivity and phase behaviour and this is vital to technologies such as mineral processing, electrochemistry and natural product extraction.
  Bicyclic peptides: targeting toxins and pathogens to accelerate anti-infective discovery
  Prof C G Dowson
Application Deadline: 14 February 2019
PhD in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research. Fully funded studentship available for entry in September 2019. This Industrial Collaborative Award in Science and Engineering (iCASE) studentship is offered by Warwick’s MRC Funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
  (BBSRC DTP) Biofuel synthesis from enzymes: how do charge distributions affect product control?
  Prof P Popelier, Dr S De Visser
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
One of this project ‘s strengths is the novel computational technology it introduces to the paramount field of biocatalysis. Any quantum mechanical insight into enzymes is initially holistic in character, that is, energies and electron densities are calculated for the whole systems.
  Brønsted Acid Catalysed Asymmetric Synthesis of Cyclic Ethers
  Dr P Clarke
Applications accepted all year round
Over recent years there has been a drive by medicinal chemists to explore more 3-dimensional areas of chemical space. Cyclic ethers, such as the tetrahydropyran (THP) and the tetrahydrofuran (THF) rings, are the most common and 6th most common saturated heterocyclic function present in marketed pharmaceuticals.
  PhD in Geographical & Earth Sciences: Anthropogenic geodiversity – how can Scotland’s industrial waste legacy contribute to geodiversity and biodiversity?
  Dr J MacDonald
Applications accepted all year round
Co-supervised by Professor Alistair Jump, University of Stirling. As recognised in Scotland’s Geodiversity Charter, geodiversity underpins biodiversity and faces pressures from human influence.
