  Engineering crops for improved freezing tolerance and better yields
  Dr PH Knight, Dr J Hartwell
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is predicted we will need to increase crop yields by 50 - 70 % by 2050 to feed the world. In many parts of the planet, yields are severely limited by freezing temperatures that kill or damage crops.
  Recognition and mapping of DNA hypermodifications by type IV restriction enzymes
  Dr T Blower, Dr R D Morgan
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Training Opportunity. This project will appeal to a motivated student who wants experience and training in both a UK academic setting, and in the world-class research labs of a leading US biotechnology company.
  The cell envelope of bacteria as a target for chelant and antibiotic combinations
  Dr GJ Sharples, Dr W Vollmer
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial metal and antibiotic resistance are increasingly recognised as processes that evolve in parallel. Although not well-characterised, co-resistance is frequently associated with cellular import and export mechanisms.
  Uncovering new signalling nodes in the interaction between wheat and the fungal pathogen Mycosphaerella graminicola (Septoria tritici)
  Dr A Sadanandom, Prof A Gatehouse
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycosphaerella graminicola is an economically important fungal pathogen of wheat leaves and the causal agent of Septoria tritici blotch disease (STB).
  Validating and exploiting inositol phosphoryl ceramide synthase as a novel herbicide target
  Prof P Steel, Dr PW Denny
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With the global population predicted to continue rising there is a need for more efficient food production. An essential component of sustainable intensive cereal production is effective crop protection agents.
  Causal Neural Mechanisms for Decision Making: Putting Rules into Context
  Dr C Petkov, Dr A Easton
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In nature, different rules apply under different contexts. For example, how we act in a classroom is very different from how we might be when we are with our friends.
  Combining cutting edge molecular microbiology and super-resolution microscopy to reveal how bacteria divide
  Dr S Holden, Dr GJ Sharples, Prof S J Foster
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking to recruit an outstanding student to work on uncovering the architecture of the Bacillus subtilis bacterial cell division septum by super-resolution microscopy.
  Comparative functional genomics of trichomonads infecting animals and humans: new insights into their zoonotic capacity and diverse mucosal life styles
  Prof R Hirt, Dr A Jackson, Dr D Bolam, Dr E Lowe
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project represents a unique opportunity to gain multidisciplinary skills integrating ‘omics (comparative and evolutionary genomics and transcriptomics) with functional characterisations (biochemistry, enzymology) of candidate colonisation/virulence factors of important Trichomonads symbionts with worldwide distribution among human, pet animals, bovine and avian populations.
  Computational image analysis assisted optimisation of retinal organoid cryopreservation
  Prof M Lako, Dr JP de Magalhaes, Dr R Bauer, Dr P Kilbride
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interested in using computers to better understand biology? Then this project might be what you are looking for! The aim is to use novel software and high-performance computers, in order to analyse retinal tissue after freezing and thawing.
  Exploring fungal-specific aspects of ribosome production to find new ways to protect global food security and human health
  Dr C Schneider, Dr M X Caddick
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fungal contamination leads to reduced harvest and post-harvest food spoilage and accounts for the loss of 10-20% of food production worldwide.
