  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
  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.
  EASTBIO Engineering novel RNA Polymerases for RNA vaccine production
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Prof S Rosser, Dr F Menolascina
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A new generation of vaccines is under development by world-leading pharmaceutical companies. These vaccines are based on RNA – a natural molecule that transfers information from the DNA code into the protein antigen in our own bodies so that we effectively produce our own vaccine.
  EASTBIO Targeted genome editing to replace nuclear-encoded Rubisco in rice
  Research Group: Institute of Molecular Plant Sciences
  Dr A McCormick
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Second Supervisor. Dr Elizabete Carmo-Silva, Lancaster University. Overview. Ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/ oxygenase (Rubisco) is the driving force behind CO2 assimilation in all plants.
  Supporting Healthy Microbiota in Aged Skin
  Prof M Hardman, Dr A Oates
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This PhD project is based in Hull York Medical School. The skin is home to diverse communities of microorganisms that display elaborate topographical variation.
  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.
  The molecular mechanisms underlying reproductive organ photosynthesis
  Dr D O'Maoileidigh
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing crop yields while decreasing environmental impacts of agriculture is one of the major challenges facing modern society.
  PhD Programmes at The University of Naples Federico II

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Naples Federico II is one of the oldest Universities in the world and one of the largest in Italy. It was founded in 1224 by an Imperial Decree issued by Federico II Hohenstaufen, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire to which Naples belonged at the time.
