  (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.
  Developing Bacterial Nanowires for Light-Driven Catalysis (BUTTU20DTP)
  Prof J Butt, Dr T Clarke
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inspired by natural photosynthesis and addressing limitations of purely synthetic approaches, this PhD project aims to provide proof of principle for light-driven chemical synthesis through the design and assembly of novel inorganic:biological hybrid materials.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Discovery and Engineering of Expanded Halogenases for Late Stage Enzymatic Functionalisation
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to discover and engineer novel enzymes (biocatalysts) that can affect regioselective halogenation of complex molecules enabling more efficient and environmentally sustainable production of pharmaceuticals which are urgently required to combat disease.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  Precision Medicine DTP - A step change in sensitivity of Raman spectroscopy for accurate and rapid analysis of living cells
  Dr A Downes, Dr H Yin
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Most methods of cell characterization require a destructive or invasive test, without any real-time readout.
  Integrating chemocatalysis and biocatalysis to create new synthetic pathways (iCBPATH)
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof M Greaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we aim to combine the power of enzymatic C-H bond functionalisation and transition metal catalysis to construct complex molecules in a single reaction providing new, more efficient and rapid routes to pharmaceuticals and other essential products.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  Development of Optical Nanobiosensors for Opioids and Fentanyl-related Substances
  Dr O Adegoke, Prof N Nic Daeid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Opioid use is currently on the increase and its abuse poses serious risks that affects the economic state of all societies worldwide as well as health and social wellbeing.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Environmental Exposure to Cannabinoids, Metabolites and Transformation
  Dr J B Sallach, Dr A Singer
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical and recreational use of cannabis and cannabis-derived compounds, cannabinoids, are increasing as prohibitionary legislation has evolved in many countries throughout the world.
