  Emerging application of gas plasma technologies
  Dr F Iza
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gas plasmas generate reactive environments at low temperature that can trigger chemical and bio-chemical processes that are hard to initiate by other means.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.
  PhD Studentship: Next-generation bio-fuels: optical and theoretical analysis of particulate formation
  Dr R Yang
Application Deadline: 29 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Application details. Reference number. RYWS2019. Start date of studentship. 1 January 2020. Closing date of advert. 30 September 2019.
  The role of matrix interactions in regulating the SPARC family of matricellular proteins.
  Dr N Hill, Dr A Munasinghe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The SPARC family of matricellular proteins determine the way in which cells respond to their extracellular environment. SPARC family proteins interact with a range of binding partners, including matrix proteins (1).
  De novo design of a new generation of catalysts based on rhodium coiled coils
  Dr A Peacock
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project will generate a new class of miniature metalloenzymes based on rhodium coiled coils, which bring together the power of enzymatic catalysis, as provided by the coiled coil miniature protein-type scaffold, and small molecule rhodium catalysis.
  Genetic studies of corneal endothelial dystrophies and development of alternative treatment options
  Dr M Ali
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cornea is the protective front part of the eye that provides most of the eyes focusing power. The endothelium is a single-cell layer on the inside of the cornea that maintains fluid balance and is required for corneal transparency.
  Exploiting advanced methods for protein structure prediction
  Dr D J Rigden, Dr R Keegan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein structural information is crucial for an understanding of protein function and evolution. Currently, there is only experimental data for a tiny fraction of the protein universe.
  A proteomic study of serum from children with neurofibromatosis type 1 autism
  Prof J Green, Dr S Garg, Dr R Unwin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteomic approaches using mass spectrometric analysis have proved a valuable tool in understanding the molecular pathogenesis of complex disorders such as schizophrenia and ASD.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  Discovering new DNA repair enzymes using archaea as a model for mammals
  Dr E Bolt, Dr T Allers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project will combine protein biochemistry and molecular biology methods, and will provide detailed training into how to analyse gene and protein function.
  DNA replication, recombination and repair in Archaea
  Dr T Allers, Dr E Bolt
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Additional Supervisor. Anita Marchfelder (University of Ulm, Germany). Archaea are the third domain of life, alongside eukaryotes and bacteria.
  Enzymes of endocannabinoid turnover in inflammatory responses
  Dr SPH Alexander
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over recent years, we have generated, developed and established a wide range of assays for different enzyme activities.
  Functional characterization of Neisserial toxin-antitoxin systems
  Dr N Oldfield, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are commonly found in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and comprise a stable toxin able to stall bacterial replication and an antitoxin that neutralises the activity of the toxin.
  Genome Editing: Engineering CRISPR-Cas Enzymes to Improve Genetic Replacement in Human and Bacterial Cells
  Dr E Bolt, Prof R Chalmers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD research project is aimed at individuals who are keen to learn about the biology and biotechnology of CRISPR systems, and who are interested to investigate protein engineering of Cas1, Cas3 and Cas9 enzymes.
  Role of lipids in regulating in vivo chemotaxis
  Dr A Renault
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Aberrant cell migration is a critical factor in the progression of many diseases including cancer and atherosclerosis.
  Extracellular vesicles in health and disease
  Prof P Yaqoob, Dr D Tannetta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Endothelial dysfunction (ED) is associated with classical and emerging risk factors of cardiovascular disease (CVD), correlates with disease progression and is an independent predictor of the risk of future cardiovascular events.
  Fully funded MSc + PhD 4 year studentships in Analytical Science

Funding Type

PhD Type

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Science. A new generation of Analytical Scientists.
