  (UKM GUP) Microbial genome engineering for sustainable production of bioplastic
  Dr A B Ramzi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial use of fossil fuel-derived products has brought about alarming concerns of climate change and environmental pollution particularly the harmful effects of recalcitrant waste such as synthetic plastics to the surrounding ecosystem.
  The production of alcohols as commodity chemicals/ biofuels using yeast as a vehicle
  Prof M Ashe, Prof C M Grant, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr J Winterburn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crude oil represents probably the most important natural resource to industrial nations. As well as fuel, crude oil is used to produce a host of chemicals that govern modern day life.
  Reprogramming stomatal behaviour to reduce water use in crops
  Prof L Sweetlove, Prof R G Ratcliffe
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Future food security will depend on developing crop plants that are as efficient as possible in their utilisation of finite resources such as water.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Intelligent Engineering of Bacterial Genomes
  Prof R Breitling, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to establish methodology for the intelligent engineering of biological hosts for the production of high-value drugs and chemicals.
  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Dynamic control of metabolism for biotechnology applications
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr D Oyarzun, Dr K Burgess
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Precise control of metabolism is key for producing high-value chemicals with microbes. In this project we will combine cutting-edge time course metabolomics and control theory to create new strategies for controlling metabolic production pathways.
  (BBSRC DTP) Predictive Genotype-Phenotype-Fitness Mapping in E.coli
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr P Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genotype-phenotype-fitness mapping, or the connection between genetic mutations and their effects on organismal fitness, lies at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution.
  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.
