  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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Tackling the genomic dark matter through system engineering of ncRNAs in yeast
  Prof D Delneri, Prof P Cai
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-coding RNAs (ncRNAs) are thought as of genomic "dark matter" for which the biological significance has been largely underestimated.

  Understanding the role that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in sorting ribonucleoprotein (RNP) complexes and the mechanism by which this role of UPF1 might reduce cellular stress and cell degeneration.
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr S Brogna
Application Deadline: 7 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project’s specific objective is to study the molecular role(s) that the RNA helicase UPF1 plays in RNA processing. UPF1 is a key player in nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD), it is universally conserved in eukaryotes and is essential to the development of many organisms [1].
  Computer aided design methods for mammalian genome engineering
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr G Stracquadanio, Dr F Menolascina
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Computer Aided Design (CAD) software assists engineers in designing systems in-silico, thus reducing the time-to-market of a product and increasing the overall productivity.
