  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery, development and application of novel amine and imine biocatalysts for the synthesis of natural products, their analogues and other privileged motifs
  Dr R Whitehead, Prof N Turner, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a cross-disciplinary project, which combines the complementary research expertise of Professor Nick Turner (biocatalysis), Professor Perdita Barran (mass spectrometry) and Dr Roger Whitehead (organic synthesis/biological chemistry).
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Design of a light-driven biocatalyst
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Illumination is able to unlock a wide range of photochemical reactions, but light is rarely used by living organisms. In fact, to date only three light dependent enzymes have been described in detail.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Answering Questions about Medical Images (Canon Medical Research Europe, Ltd)
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Visual Question Answering (VQA) [1] is the task of answering free-text questions about the content of images. For example, given an image of a room - ‘What colour is the chair standing in the corner?’ - answering this question requires joint understanding of vision, language, spatial reasoning, and common sense.
  Nanomechanics of collagen
  Dr PM Mesquida
Application Deadline: 14 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Collagen is a structural protein that forms microscopically small fibrils in all vertebrates. These fibrils constitute the main component of many tissues, ranging from skin and bone to eyes.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Exploitation of P450 BM3 variants for production of valuable drug metabolites
  Prof A Munro, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recommended that human drug metabolites (as well as their parent drugs) should be subject to testing for safety/toxicity.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Designing and evolving plastic-degrading enzymes for new function
  Dr B Lichtenstein, Prof J McGeehan, Dr S Robson
Application Deadline: 7 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded four year PhD studentship to commence in October 2020. The PhD will be based at the University’s Centre for Enzyme Innovation (CEI), and will be supervised by Dr Bruce Lichtenstein, Prof.
