  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: RNA modifications: cracking the RNA code in health and disease
  Prof K Stellos, Prof I Spyridopoulos, Dr A Gatsiou, Dr S Tual-Chalot
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Inflammation comprises a fundamental biological process tasked to protect our body against invasion of microorganisms (e.g virus, bacteria, etc).
  Understanding Biofilm Formation in the Domain Archaea
  Dr J Megaw, Prof B Gilmore
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Biofilms - structured and organised microbial communities - represent one of the most successful forms of life.
  Plant responses to stress, metabolites for health and fuel from cell walls.
  Prof A Devoto
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects are available in the following areas. Stress responses in crops and sustainable biomass production and processing. The project aims at elucidating several aspects of the control of plant defences and to identify environmentally friendly forms of plant protectants, leading to enhanced crop yields.
  (BBSRC DTP) A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond the reach of experimental techniques but can be achieved through synergy with computational chemistry.
  (BBSRC DTP) How nature reduces nitrogen – unravelling design features for a nitrogenase mimic
  Dr P O'Malley, Dr S De Visser, Prof M W Anderson
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrogen is required for life as a crucial component of both nucleic acids and proteins. Even though nitrogen is the most abundant gas in our atmosphere, our cells can’t use it in its atmospheric form, relying on other processes to "fix" that nitrogen into a biologically available form, ammonia or ammonium.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering, i.e.

  Functional mirror-image ribo-regulation tools
  Dr N Dixon
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual award PhD in Synthetic and Systems Biology - Manchester and Tsinghua University.
  Integrating chemocatalysis and biocatalysis to create new synthetic pathways (iCBPATH)
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof M Greaney
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In this project, we aim to combine the power of enzymatic C-H bond functionalisation and transition metal catalysis to construct complex molecules in a single reaction providing new, more efficient and rapid routes to pharmaceuticals and other essential products.
  Synthesis of ribonucleosides using biocatalytic cascades
  Prof N Turner, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background – Current state of the art for the synthesis of Anti-Sense Oligonucleotides employs solid phase synthesis. The ASOs are assembled from individual ribonucleotides which themselves are often requiring complicated multistep routes to prepare.
