  Novel microfluidic organ on a chip technologies and artificial cells for therapeutics delivery
  Dr N Kamaly
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Technological advances in the fields of microfluidics and tissue engineering have enabled the establishment of biomimetic lab-on-a-chip systems that resemble human biology at the cellular, tissue and organ levels.
  Waste Treatment and Microbial Conversion to Energy Rich Compounds (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BLACK1)
  Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing concerns over usage of fossil resources and its effect on climate change, there has been much interest in producing chemicals and materials from renewable feedstocks mainly non-food-based biomass or directly from CO2.
  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.
  Disrupting the regulatory mechanisms that allow hospital acquired infections to resist antibiotic therapy.
  Dr R McCarthy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The discovery of penicillin over 90 years ago and its subsequent uptake by healthcare systems around the world revolutionised global health and wellbeing.

  A bioinformatics approach to understanding protein solubility tags
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr R Curtis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The crowded environment of a cell cytoplasm reveals that proteins and other biological molecules co-exist at high macromolecular concentrations.
  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.

The CDT will train the next generation of leaders in developing in vitro tissues, sensing and diagnostics to develop humanised in vitro systems to drive better drug screening.
  Microfluidics based core-shell droplet generator: design, construction, drop characterization and bio-compatibility
  Prof M Marengo, Prof M Santin, Dr K Rodriguez-Echavarria
Application Deadline: 20 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Are you looking for a big research challenge in biomedical and pharmaceutical devices? We are looking for a brilliant mechanical engineer or bio-engineer with the ambition to design and construct a prototype of a personalised drug delivery system able to generate micro- or nano-pills, which can be ‘printed’ using the concept of a droplet generator.
  Biosynthetic Lego: Building antibiotic assembly lines from first principles
  Dr P Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature has evolved many elegant strategies for the construction of complex bioactive natural products. The most sophisticated of these involves the action of giant assembly line like megaenzymes, which fuse and tailor simple carboxylic acid building blocks into a vast array of elaborate carbon scaffolds.
  Modular design of custom protein structures
  Dr F Parmeggiani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Proteins perform most of the functions in biological systems, from structural support, to movement, communication and catalysis. Our goal is to use modular building blocks to quickly and precisely design novel protein nanomaterials and nanoparticles to control cell behaviour.

The CDT will train the next generation of leaders in developing in vitro tissues, sensing and diagnostics to develop humanised in vitro systems to drive better drug screening.
  Uncovering the mechanisms of cryoprotectant toxicity and improving cryopreservation protocols
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cryopreservation is the process of placing cells, organs or even whole organisms at low temperatures so that they remain in a state of suspended animation and function is preserved.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  High-throughput mechanobiology
  Dr C Toseland
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer research has traditionally focused upon extra- or intra-cellular biochemical signals, and their relation to cancer development and metastasis.
  Nanoparticles in drug delivery
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr U Kishore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoparticles (NPs) are materials with overall dimensions in the nano scale range (5nm-100nm). Due to their unique physicochemical properties, they have found a wide range of applications and are currently explored as drug and gene delivery vehicles.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  PhD inChemistry - Protein structural mimics through chemical ligation
  Dr D Thomson
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project targets the interface between chemistry and biology. Chemistry has provided many reactions that can be used to join complex molecules together, these ‘ligation’ reactions are useful, but often leave behind chemical functionality that serves no purpose other than to connect fragments together.
  On-chip dielectric micro/nano structures for Mid-IR and Raman Spectroscopic signal enhancement for biomarker diagnostics
  Dr S Ganapathy, Prof J Wilkinson
Application Deadline: 1 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
