  EPSRC CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWANO)

Funding Type

PhD Type

Established in 2013 with EPSRC funding and now supported by the University of Manchester and industry, Graphene NOWNANO CDT offers PhD training in science, technology and applications of the fast-growing family of two-dimensional materials.
  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering

Funding Type

PhD Type

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in BioDesign Engineering aims to train the next generation of leaders at the interface of biology, engineering and data science.
  (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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Isonitrile synthesizing nonheme iron enzymes: substrate scope and potential
  Research Group: Molecular Systems and Biomaterials
  Dr S De Visser, Dr A Green, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cheap and efficient synthesis of drug molecules remains a challenge and often leads to a large amount of by-products. Nature has developed a large range of enzymes for Natural Product Synthesis, but only few of them are able to incorporate an isonitrile group into a substrate.
  Development of robust and effective downstream purification and analytical techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Research Group: Molecular Systems and Biomaterials
  Dr J Winterburn
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring, microbially produced amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  Multiscale dynamic visualisation framework for industrial mutants design and biological knowledge discovery
  Dr D Zhang
Application Deadline: 30 August 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Current industrial bio-production processes exclusively uses yeast and bacteria as the microorganism hosts to synthesise valuable commercial compounds.
  (A*STAR) A multiscale approach to modelling the structure and dynamics of large enzymes
  Dr S Hay, Prof N Scrutton, Dr L Johannissen
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Much of biochemistry relies on atomic resolution structural information, most commonly determined using X-ray crystallography. However, due to their dynamic nature, it is often not possible to determine the structure of large multi-domain proteins.
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  (A*STAR) Next generation sequencing methods for glycoconjugates
  Prof S Flitsch, Prof P Barran, Prof R Field
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project builds on a highly successful existing collaboration between the Manchester (existing collaboration between Flitsch/Barran and Field) and A*STAR laboratories (Nguyen-Khuong), including a current A-star studentship (2017-2020 to Ed Pallister).
  (A*STAR) Protein solubility in biology and biotechnology
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr R Curtis
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein aggregation is an issue in biology and biotechnology. A wealth of studies have focussed on proteinopathies and neurodegenerative diseases in particular.
