  Understanding Dynamic Intracellular Organization in Gene-Engineered Cells by Advanced Fluorescence Microscopy and Physical Micromanipulation
  Dr T Surrey
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The inside of living cells is highly organized. Nevertheless, cellular components constantly move around and all molecules constantly turn over.
  HELMs: self-assembling cyclic lipopeptides for the efficient transport and delivery of drugs to the GI-tract
  Prof S Cutting
Application Deadline: 10 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have discovered a unique class of molecule produced by environmental bacteria termed HELMs (heterogenous lipopeptide micelles).
  Stimuli-responsive biopolymers for life science, materials and therapeutic applications
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a self-funded project, match-finding option may be available for qualifying candidates. Please include a detailed CV with any enquiries.
  Investigate a novel, unexplored link between WNT signalling and regulators of cell migration in cancer progression using CRISPR-Cas9 and advanced live cell imaging.
  Dr M Krause
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer is a devastating disease. more than one in three people in the UK will develop cancer in their lifetime. WNT signalling is a key pathway controlling morphogenesis in embryos and it has been shown that perturbations of this pathway promote cancer progression.
  Thermoregulation and Ventilation in Termite Nests: Towards Bio-Inspired Solutions to Design Energy Efficient Buildings
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Dr K Singh
Application Deadline: 2 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Termite nests have long been investigated as effective examples for ventilation and thermoregulation. Their structure maintains a stable temperature throughout the year and permits self-sustainable CO2 exchange with the atmosphere without using any mechanical devices.
  Modelling and understanding of biological systems, using physics as a tool
  Dr Y Hayashi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Living systems are complex, and are based on the basic building blocks of genes, proteins, chemical reactions, and physical forces.
  Mechanistic Study of Molecular Assembly for Drug and Gene Delivery
  Dr X Zhao
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite numerous advances over the past several decades, effective drug and gene delivery with high efficiency, low toxicity and cell targeting remains challenging.
  Micro-rheology of active matter
  Dr V Kantsler, Prof R C Ball
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project concerns microrheology of active matter - to study properties of biological microscopic constituents and its complex environment via optical microscopy and microfluidic methods.
  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Prof LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation represents an effective strategy used by cells to enhance their activities. By creating physical barriers and compartments, cells sequester the metabolic pathways from the cellular milieu to allow controls of metabolic flux and toxic diffusion.
  Characterising surface properties of protein biopharmaceutical molecules
  Dr A Golovanov, Dr J Warwicker
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protein biologicals have great potential for the effective treatment of a wide range of diseases. However, aggregation and instability are inherent issues with all protein pharmaceuticals, which is a problem that can limit their utility and developability.
