  Artificial microbial photosynthesis: development of biohybrid systems to produce solar chemicals and fuels from waste-carbon (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BLACK2)
  Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar energy is the most abundant energy source and can act as a green and sustainable energy supply. It is worth noting that one-hour sunlight can satisfy the one-year energy demand of the entire world.
  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.
  Seeing photosynthesis at the nanoscale: mapping physical properties of light-harvesting biomembranes by high-resolution microscopy and spectroscopy
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr P.G. Adams, Dr G Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding photosynthesis could provide valuable clues for future solar technology and help our understanding of food crops.
  Viral re-wiring of cyanobacterial photosynthesis
  Prof D J Scanlan, Dr A Millard, Dr R Puxty
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oxygenic photosynthesis is a fundamental biological activity. As well as oxygenating the atmosphere, it is also the basis of all food chains and global carbon cycling via the direct fixation of carbon dioxide (CO2) into organic matter.
  Supramolecular assemblies for artificial photosynthesis
  Dr T A Barendt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar power provides a clean and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels and light harvesting has long been a source of renewable energy in Nature.
  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.
  PhD: Improving 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.
  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.
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
  Strategies for Increasing Crop Stress Tolerance
  Research Group: Ecology and Evolution
  Dr G Johnson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Humanity is facing a growing food crisis – the “perfect storm” of growing world populations and changing climates mean we urgently need to increase crop productivity, including by increasing environmental stress tolerance.
  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  Dissecting the role of MCE proteins in Cyanobacteria
  Dr V Darbari, Prof C Mullineaux
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).

  EPSRC DTP studentship: Quantum coherence in single biomolecules measured by multidimensional optical micro-spectroscopy
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr E Muljarov, Dr F Masia
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life is based on the intricate interactions between a multitude of biomolecules, including lipids, proteins, and DNA. They are dynamical in nature and maintain the non-equilibrium state of life.
