  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  MSc by Research Programme: How are SUMO substrates selected for modification
  Prof R Hay
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Data-driven engineering of novel drugs by machine-learning-derived understanding of the molecular basis for drug action
  Dr I Styles, Prof D Veprintsev
Application Deadline: 17 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to pave the way for AI-based data-driven drug “engineering” that will shape a new generation of drugs that are more efficacious and have fewer side-effects.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Bacterial stress sensing and antibiotic action
  Dr U Zachariae, Dr M Bergkessel
Application Deadline: 11 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is offered as part of the University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme “Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science”.
  Adjuvant therapies for mupirocin-resistant bacteria
  Dr B Bonev, Dr A Cockayne
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus has been able to adapt constantly to therapeutic use of antibiotics and remains an important source of clinical complications, morbidity and mortality.
  BBSRC MIBTP: Investigating the influence of myelin plasticity on neural circuit function
  Dr D Fulton, Dr V Marra
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research interests/description of main research theme. Oligodendrocytes (OL) wrap axons in myelin, an insulting material whose formation in tightly compacted spirals increases the speed of action potentials by up to 10-fold.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: From Live Cells to Single-molecules: Unravelling the interplay between 3D genomic structure and gene expression
  Dr C Toseland, Dr T Craggs
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This studentship is focused on applying state-of-the-art single molecule imaging techniques to study the molecular basis of DNA condensation and its impact upon gene expression.

  (BBSRC DTP) A computational model for improving catalytic rate in enzymes
  Dr J Warwicker, Dr S De Visser, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Directed evolution of enzyme activity is an established methodology, generating biocatalysts that are of benefit for biotechnology, for example in bioenergy production [Turner 2009].
  Cationic antimicrobial peptides as anticancer agents
  Dr R Green, Prof R A Frazier
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cationic peptides are widespread in nature where they play a key role in host defense within plants and animals. The mechanism by which these peptides interact with cell membranes potentially leads to these being less prone to antimicrobial resistance than conventional antibiotics.
  Deciphering the neural code of the hippocampus
  Dr M Montemurro, Dr J Gigg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The brain processes and stores information about our lives and the world that surrounds us. At the neural scale, information is encoded through the precise timing of activity across populations of neurons.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  Protein Misfolding and the Molecular Basis of Alzheimer’s Disease
  Dr J Viles
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. World-wide one in three people over the age of 65 will die with Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). The disease is characterised by deposits of amyloid plaques and fibrils of amyloid-beta peptide (Ab) are their main constituent.
  Targeted Agrochemical delivery using smart nanoparticles for sustainable agriculture
  Dr A Tyler, Prof K. Field, Prof N Kapur, Dr T.A. Bennett
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Huge amounts of agrochemicals, such as fertilisers and biostimulants, are applied to arable farmland each year to boost crop performance.
  Eastbio PhD Programme: Targeting the MYCBP2 E3 ubiquitin ligase with small molecules
  Prof A Ciulli, Dr S Virdee
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4 year PhD project is part of a competition funded by EASTBIO BBSRC Doctoral Training Partnership http://www.eastscotbiodtp.ac.uk/how-apply-0.
