  Engineering synthetic ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  BioCHIP: synthetic tissues with collective information-processing functions
  Dr P Gobbo
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A more detailed project description can be found on the University of Bristol website. http://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-library/sites/chemistry/documents/Gobbo_PhD_studentship.pdf.
  High-throughput screening of single-cell dynamics using microfluidics and optical tweezers
  Dr L. Potvin-Trottier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Previously, we have succeeded in engineering the most precise and robust synthetic oscillator to date. This was done with multiple iterations of precise evaluation of the circuit’s properties in a microfluidic device, stochastic modeling of the circuit followed by re-design, to end up with a handful of circuits.
  Using Synthetic Biology to Engineer an Industrially Relevant Chassis for the Built Environment (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/JAMES)
  Dr P James
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world’s first research Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment (HBBE http://bbe.ac.uk/) is a £8M initiative between Northumbria and Newcastle Universities funded by Research England that aims to catalyse innovation to develop a building industry fit for the 4th industrial revolution.
  Expanding the Genetic Code of a Synthetic Yeast
  Prof P Cai, Dr A Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project aims to develop an efficient yeast-based protein expression platform with an expanded genetic code. The standard genetic code of natural organisms comprises 20 canonical amino acids.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  Data-driven and Model-based Design and Computational Analysis of Systems and Synthetic Biology
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr S Konur, Prof M Gheorghe, Dr R Hamed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how biological cells and organisms function is a very challenging task, as biological systems are getting more complex.
  Engineering Immune Cell Surfaces
  Prof I Gibson, Dr D Mitchell
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the past decade there has been a revolution in therapeutics with protein and cell based therapies emerging to supplement traditional ‘small molecule’ drugs.
  Mapping the three dimensional structure of RNA
  Prof M Wills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We aim to combine organic synthetic chemistry, molecular biology, virology and computational biology tools to elucidate the 3D structure determinants behind RNA viruses such as dengue virus and coronaviruses.
  Design and Synthesis of Bifunctional 3-D Building Blocks for Use in Medicinal Chemistry
  Prof P O'Brien
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is in collaboration with Professor Mike Waring (Newcastle University). Background. Fragment-based methods are established for the identification of lead compounds in drug discovery.1 Fragments are small molecules (molecular weight ~150-300) which bind weakly to proteins.
  Protein nanocompartments for advanced enzymatic catalysis (PhD in Chemical and Synthetic Biology)
  Dr Y H Lau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Sydney is looking for outstanding candidates who are looking to apply for a PhD position in chemical and synthetic biology, in the group of Dr Yu Heng Lau (http://sydney.edu.au/science/people/yuheng.lau.php).
  Data-driven design of biological systems – Computational synthetic biology
  Dr G Misirli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology has emerged as an engineering field lately, with the aim of designing novel biological systems. Small biological components can be used together to create devices and systems.
  Control of antibiotic production through synthetic biology of bacterial hormone signalling
  Prof E Takano, Prof R Breitling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics due to an increase in antibiotic resistance. To produce these essential drugs efficiently in biotechnological systems, we need to have a better understanding of the regulatory mechanisms of antibiotic production.
