  Understanding and Engineering E. coli biofilm formation
  Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biofilms are communities of bacteria living together, bound by a self-produced extracellular matrix, often attached to a solid surface (Hall-Stoodley et al., 2004).
  NERC-funded PhD studentships: Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet (SSCP) Doctoral Training Partnership integrates six host partners and a number of business and policy sector partners, to offer an exciting programme that trains and inspires the next generation of environmental experts and leaders to tackle some of the toughest challenges of our time.
  (BBRSC DTP CASE) Controlling interfacial adsorption of bispecific therapeutics using multivalent ions
  Dr R Curtis, Dr A Pluen, Dr C F Blanford
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

ImmTAC molecules are a promising new class of bispecific therapeutics produced by Immunocore for applications in oncology and as new treatments for infectious diseases.
  Molecular regulation of surface remodelling in the human pathogen Schistosoma mansoni
  Prof A Walker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this PhD project you will perform cutting edge research that aims to identify molecular signalling events that underpin the survival of schistosomes in their human host.
  Rational engineering of NMDAR subunit-specific peptide affinity reagents and their pharmacological and functional characterisation as novel subtype specific NMDAR ligands.
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to engineer subunit-specific anti-GluN1/2/A/B polypeptide affinity reagents and to characterise their pharmacological specificity and functional activity on the recombinant NMDARs expressed in heterologous expression systems and on native NMDARs in hippocampal slice preparations.
  PhD in Tactile Biomechanics and Neuroscience: How Do Humans Feel Friction?
  Dr RS Redmond
Application Deadline: 20 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Prosthetic and robotic hands demonstrate poor dexterity during object manipulation, often dropping objects. Humans rarely allow objects to slip because we can sense if an object is slippery and adjust our grip.
  Simulation Modelling of Distortion and Shrinkage in Stereolithography 3D Printing.
  Dr E Sabet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project offers a chance to work on a truly disruptive and innovative research project in the high-tech and high-value manufacturing, with very high potential impact in aerospace and energy sectors.
  Engineering of Halomonas to develop a robust microbial chassis for renewable bio-LPG and bioplastics production.
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr N Dixon
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual award PhD in Synthetic and Systems Biology - Manchester and Tsinghua University.
  Novel viscosupplementation formulation for treatment of arthritis
  Dr Z Zhang
Application Deadline: 1 September 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Osteoarthritis of the knee is one of the leading causes of disability. It is common for medical professionals to recommend patients to use viscosupplementation, injection of artificial lubricant into arthritic joints, as a non-surgical intervention, for treatment of early stage arthritis.
  EastBio Understanding the Structural Basis of Encapsulin Assembly for Efficient Engineering of Encapsulated Enzymes
  Dr D Clarke
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Co-Supervisors. Dr Stephen Wallace, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh. Dr. Louise Horsfall, School of Biological Sciences, University of Edinburgh.
  Investigating the Causal Biological Effects on Microbial Induced Corrosion (MIC) Occurring Within Components of Advanced Maritime Systems
  Dr B Connolly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a full time PhD studentship in the Department of Materials at the University of Manchester. The project is supported by BAE Systems, who will provide both industrial supervision, access to research facilities and secondments during the studentship.
  OUR CHANGING OCEANS: data science and the marine carbon cycle. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Dr U Schuster
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Ute Schuster, Department of Geography, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  GW4 FRESH CDT PhD Studentship: Chlorine reduction wetlands
  Dr J Wenk
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Forever Blowing Bubbles: Quantifying Methane Discharge from Inland Water Systems (IAPETUS2 Project)
  Dr A Bass, Dr C Gauchotte-Lindsay
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Methane (CH4) is one of the most potent greenhouse gases and a significant regulator of global climate. Significant CH4 degassing occurs from inland aquatic systems, but substantial variability in spatial and temporal flux rates mean quantifying and characterising this pathway is challenging.
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
