  Synthetic Resistance to Potato Blight
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The oomycete potato pathogen Phytophthora infestans has caused devastation during the Irish Potato Famine in the 1840s. P. infestans still causes major problems in the potato industry, and is mostly controlled using agrochemicals.
  Genetic basis of extracellular potato blight recognition in wild Solanum sp.
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
Potato late blight has caused the devastating Irish potato famine in the 1840s and is still an important pathogen in agriculture today.
  (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.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round
Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  The effects of exercise on the ocular stress response to dry environments (RDF19/HLS/SER/PEART)
  Dr D Peart
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Unpublished pilot work from our group has identified that a single one hour exposure to a desiccating environment (. The successful applicant will contribute to shaping the direction of the project, and full training will be provided in all of the relevant methods of data collection.
  Novel extremophilic metalloprotease for consumer product application
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project will identify and characterise novel protease enzymes from extremophiles for use in processes and products of interest to the industrial collaborator Unilever.
  Cryo electron microscopy to study innate immune complexes on the surface of cancer cells
  Dr J Emsley
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
Blood vessels of tumors carry specific markers on the cell surface. The innate immune system consisting of complement proteins and white blood cells (macrophages) are involved in the recognition and destruction of cancer cells.
  Functional assignment of Papain-like Cys proteases in plant development and immunity
  Prof R Van der Hoorn
Applications accepted all year round
The rapid and structured disassembly of plant proteomes during germination, senescence and defence are massive proteolytic events that underpin plant development and immunity.
  Characterising the genetic aetiology of common elastic tissue diseases using UK Biobank
  Prof D Furniss, Dr K Zondervan
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
NDORMS 2019/5. The extracellular matrix (ECM) is a complex, three-dimensional, non-cellular structure that is present in every organ in the human body.
  Biological role of Stress Hormones
  Dr A B Bicknell
Applications accepted all year round
OVERVIEW. Our lab focuses on the biological roles of peptide hormones derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC), a protein produced in the anterior pituitary gland.
