  Exploring natural and artificial biofilms of acetogenic bacteria to improve microbial electrosynthesis rates
  Prof J Philips, Prof K. Koren
Application Deadline: 1 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microbial electrosynthesis is a novel biotechnological process for the conversion of excess renewable electricity and CO2 into biofuels or other organic compounds.
  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  QUADRAT DTP: Development of artificial reefs: design, scientific monitoring, environment impact and management in North/Irish Seas
  Prof F Kuepper, Dr M Sonebi
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

With the population growth along coastlines the demand of infrastructure for various societal needs such as transportation (ports), energies (pipelines…
  Optimisation of anaerobic digestion to produce chemicals and methane - LEVERHULME
  Dr D Dionisi, Dr C Fernandez-Martin
Application Deadline: 28 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Anaerobic digestion has a large potential for the production of renewable energy and renewable chemicals, however this potential is currently largely unexploited.
  A novel silk biomaterial-based combinational approach to enhance axonal regrowth after spinal cord injury
  Dr W Huang, Prof C McCaig, Dr P Seib
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spinal cord injury causes permanent and incurable functional impairment below the injure site. No single therapy has ever been successful, so a combined approach is much more likely to succeed.
  Clinical and molecular correlates of response to first line treatment in oral lichen planus
  Dr K Hijazi, Prof J Gibson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oral lichen planus is a chronic disease of the lining of the mouth that causes pain and increases the risk of oral cancer. The negative impact of oral lichen planus on quality of life has been proven.
  In Silico design and chemoenzymatic synthesis of bioactive cyclic and stapled peptides
  Dr W Houssen, Dr S Dall'Angelo, Dr G S Bewick
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclic and modified cyclic peptides are very appealing scaffolds especially as therapeutics with several examples reach the clinic e.g.
  Investigating a parasite-specific gene expression mechanism for the identification of novel anthelmintic drug targets
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Connolly
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematode parasites remain a major cause of neglected human disease and make significant global impacts on the health of agriculturally important animals and plants.
  Reprogramming the innate immune system to treat malignancy: targeting ovarian cancer
  Prof M A Vickers, Prof I Stansfield, Prof H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 17 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite the major advances achieved in recent years by redirecting the adaptive immune system to recognise cancer cells (notably monoclonal antibodies, checkpoint inhibitors and chimaeric antigen receptor T cells), the therapeutic potential of innate immunity remains underexploited.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - A receptor-ligand module that triggers cell death in plants: a killer in disguise
