  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.
  An Organ on a Chip Platform for Biomedical Applications
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Organ on a chip devices are an emerging technology which employ microfluidics to grow 3D tissues, mimicking the physiological conditions found in vivo.
  Polymeric Hydrogels for Regenerative Medicine Applications
  Dr P De Bank
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Regenerative medicine aims to repair injured or diseased tissues using a multidisciplinary approach to stimulate natural repair mechanisms or promote healing through the transplantation of cells, often the patient’s own stem cells.
  Mathematical Virology: A New Mathematical Approach to Viral Evolution Grounded in Experiment
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mathematical modelling of natural phenomena has the potential to be predictive but requires direct verification by experiment. Such models can then be very powerful indicators of our understanding and they permit in silico simulations of situations that are difficult to test experimentally.
  Neuropeptide Research - PhD Opportunity at a World Class Institution
  Assoc Prof M Muttenthaler, Assoc Prof I Vetter
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are seeking talented and highly motivated PhD candidates for the following multidisciplinary project. Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Unravelling the nature of hair: How protein composition and structure responds to damage
  Dr C Holland
Application Deadline: 14 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The use of hair treatments is common across many countries in the world. These can involve a reactive chemical treatment in order to modify hair proteins (keratins) but are often detrimental to hair structure and composition.
  *EASTBIO* Exploring the biotechnological potential of GH68 family fructosyltransferases from evolutionary diverse haloarchaea
  Dr S MacNeill, Dr T Gloster
Application Deadline: 13 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

BBSRC Thematic Group. Bioscience for Renewable Resources and Clean Growth. Fructans such as inulins and levans are fructose-based oligo- and polysaccharides derived from sucrose that have found use in a variety of industrial, agricultural and healthcare applications, most notably as prebiotic dietary supplements [1, 2].
  Bioscience for Renewable Resources for Medchem and Toward Sustainable Pharmaceutical Molecule Manufacture
  Prof R Goss
Application Deadline: 13 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a need for novel and renewable technologies to enable the sustainable manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Enzymes offer a matchless opportunity for selective synthesis and late stage functionalisation, they also offer a sustainable, green and cost-effective approach toward synthesis.
  Computational design of bio-inspired silica materials for carbon capture
  Dr M Jorge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Materials that are porous at the nanoscale are used in a wide variety of applications, like gas separation, carbon capture, catalysis and drug delivery.
  Design of functional chitosan films: antimicrobial and heavy metal capture applications
  Dr P Mulheran, Dr V A Ferro
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Chitosan is a biodegradable polymer obtained from natural, abundant and renewable sources. Chitosan has been the focus of much research into its applications as an antimicrobial, and for its ability to capture heavy metals from contaminated water.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Bioplastic from sustainable feedstock – tackling the plastic challenge
  Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic is used in many applications, including packaging, construction material, parts in the automotive, biomedical devices and electronic components.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
  Production of Industrial Chemicals for Personal Care and Health Care Using Oleaginous Yeast
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many ingredients in the personal care and health care products, for example lipids, are derived from petroleum, animal fat or vegetable oil.
