  Understanding the biological function of a highly unusual bacteriophage DNA ligase
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr S MacNeill
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In all forms of life, DNA ligase enzymes are essential for joining strands of DNA when new DNA is being made or when damaged DNA is being repaired.
  Unravelling the mechanism of glutamyl-tRNA reductase, a target for broad-spectrum antibiotic development
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr RG Da Silva
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is on the rise. This global threat is predicted to claim more lives than cancer by 2050 if not properly addressed.
  PhD in the Biosynthesis and Enzymology of Fluorine Containing Metabolites in Streptomyces Bacteria
  Prof D O'Hagan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in the O’Hagan group has had a focus on the biosynthesis of fluorine containing natural products and the identification of a fluorination enzyme, ‘the fluorinase’, from Streptomyces cattleya.[1] Fluorine is very rare in nature, and in those rare cases where an organism can form a C-F bond from fluoride ion, then the enzymology is unique and interesting.
  Defining the role of de novo DNA methylation in the regulation of female fertility
  Dr J Tello
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ovulation disorders are a leading cause of female infertility, present in ~25% of couples who have difficulty conceiving. A women’s fertility is dependent on effectively timing ovulation within a highly-regulated ovarian cycle.
  EASTBIO The neural basis of descending motor control
  Dr S Pulver, Dr M Zwart
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A central view in neuroscience is that brain neurons produce the commands to start, stop and change movements,. while neurons in the spinal cord carry them out.
  Towards an understanding for the role of the microbiota to whiteleg shrimp production in a commercial recirculation aquaculture system
  Dr A Desbois
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

First supervisor. Dr Andrew Desbois, University of Stirling. Second Supervisor. Dr Kim Thompson, Moredun Research Institute. Third Supervisor.
  Can improving biodiversity help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from small waterbodies?
  Dr A Law, Prof N Willby, Dr I Jones, Dr A Pickard
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Climate change and the intensification of land use practices are causing widespread changes in ecosystems globally. This is particularly evident in freshwater ecosystems, a critical resource for society, where high connectivity within and between ecosystems allows multiple stressors to degrade these habitats.
  The combined environmental health impact of microplastics, toxic algae & human pathogens
  Prof R Quilliam, Dr E Mackay, Dr P Hunter, Dr D Oliver
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking a highly motivated individual to carry out PhD research in the fields of environmental pollution and water quality, microplastics and freshwater ecology.
  Biodegradable plastic composites from renewable or waste sources
  Dr K Johnston, Dr L Lue
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To reduce the amount of plastic waste in the marine environment, there is a strong incentive to switch to biodegradable polymers, which are ideally synthesised from renewable or waste streams, rather than from oil.
  Inhibiting amyloid development using natural compounds: a molecular dynamics study
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Amyloid fibrils are highly ordered protein aggregates associated with many neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Flavanoids, which are polyphenols such as curcumin present in the human diet, have been shown to inhibit fibril formation in tau protein which is abundant in neurons.
