  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.
  EASTBIO Exploring the Untapped Chemical Potential of the Microbial World – a cellular and synthetic biology approach to organic synthesis
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr S Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology is revolutionising the field of chemical synthesis. Using genetically modified microorganisms this approach enables the production of compounds of industrial importance (e.g.
  EASTBIO A synthetic biology approach to design ‘intelligent’ organoids for the study of host-microbe interactions
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr E Cachat, Dr L Boulter
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organoids are self-organised, 3D structures generated in vitro from adult or pluripotent stem cells, that exhibit similar functionality as their tissue of origin.
  Synthetic biology-enabled new generation biosensors to tackle global health and environmental challenges
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr Baojun Wang
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The traditional laboratory-based analytical assays for disease biomarkers and environmental toxins are expensive, time consuming and normally require specialised personnel and complex equipment.
  EASTBIO Understanding cohesion establishment at DNA replication origins using a synthetic biology approach
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Prof A Marston
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Second Supervisor. Prof Anne Donaldson, University of Aberdeen. During cell division, chromosomes must be replicated and then evenly distributed to daughter cells.
  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.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering, i.e.
  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.
  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).
  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.
  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of photosynthetic proteins in devices for solar energy conversion, biosensing, photosensing, photocatalysis, touch sensing, molecular electronics and biodegradable solar cells.
  Tracking anaerobic microbial community responses using a synthetic biology approach
  Dr J P J Chong, Dr K Redeker
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion (AD) supports the biogenic production of methane from. organic waste by utilising the catabolic activities of complex microbial.
  EASTBIO Advanced model-based optimization of biomolecular systems.
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr D Oyarzun
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are looking for an excellent doctoral student to join us on a project at the interface of computational optimization and synthetic biology.
