  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.

  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  Engineering The Rice Leaf for Improved Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050.
  Biophysics of light-induced motility in microalgae
  Dr M Polin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
  PhD in nanomaterials for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr S Eslava
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Funding is available for a PhD studentship to start as soon as possible. The project will be based in the group of Dr Salvador Eslava in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London and will be linked to a recently awarded EPSRC Fellowship project to Dr Eslava.
  PhD in nanomaterials for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr S Eslava
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of artificial leaves is crucial to exploit the solar energy and meet the increasing population energy demand, which is rising 10% per year.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
