  QUADRAT DTP CASE: The role of biodiversity in mitigating parasite impacts in farmed landscapes
  Prof M Emmerson, Prof J Travis, Dr A Aubry
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biodiversity provides a range of benefits for the functioning of ecosystems, but it also helps to limit the spread of disease. This occurs because congeneric species in a community can compete with vectors of disease limiting the abundance of the vector and hence the overall prevalence of the disease.

  Terrestrial Hg pools inter-compartmental exchanges.
  Dr D Kocman
Application Deadline: 29 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Terrestrial Hg pools can act as both source and sink for atmospheric and aquatic Hg, respectively, its actual fate being driven by complex mechanisms and processes of retention, deposition and remobilization.
  Mechanochemistry with mechanical bonds
  Dr G De Bo, Prof D Leigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Any force developed at the macroscopic scale can induce dramatic changes at the molecular scale, even breaking covalent bonds.[1] Indeed, mechanical force is a formidable source of energy that, with its ability to distort, bend and stretch chemical bonds, is unique in its ability to promote reaction pathways that are otherwise inaccessible to traditional methods of activation.
  Modelling photosynthetic water oxidation
  Dr P O'Malley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims use molecular modelling methods and spectroscopy to understand how the protein environment of electron transfer cofactors in photosysnthesis and in particular how the water oxidising complex, facilitates electron transfer and also helps stabilise these radical species to maintain a charge separated state.
  Molecular tug-of-war: promoting reactions with force
  Dr G De Bo, Prof D Procter
Applications accepted all year round

  (BBSRC DTP) Integrative statistical inference methods for eukaryotic gene regulation with applications to embryonic stem cell differentiation
  Dr I Iqbal, Prof M Rattray, Prof A Sharrocks
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Embryonic stem cells (ESCs) can differentiate into different cell types through intermediary cell states and deeper understanding of the regulatory control underlying these differentiation stages is a very important topic in the study of mammalian development (Yang et al., 2014 & 2019).
  How regulatory immunological cues (re)programme cellular metabolism to control effector T cell behaviour and function
  Dr K Couper, Prof R K Grencis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upon activation a T cell transitions from a state of semi-quiescence to a state of high activity. During the process of activation the T cell therefore needs to up regulate metabolic pathways to acquire the energy and nutrients required to facilitate the behavioural changes associated with its new functional state.
