  Seeking critical branch points in bacterial evolution with comparative genomics
  Prof N Saunders, Mr A Khan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a bioinformatics and comparative genomics-focussed project, seeking to identify the basis of speciation and sub-speciation of bacterial species accounting for the development of individual and independent lineages.
  Multitasking abilities – Are computerised laboratory tasks predictive of real-world tasks?
  Dr A Szameitat, Dr A Parton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multitasking, i.e. the concurrent performance of two or more tasks, has been investigated in many different domains. In Cognitive Psychology, experimental paradigms such as the task switching paradigm or the dual-task paradigm of the Psychological Refractory Period (PRP) are the most widely used multitasking paradigms.
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  Improving surgical planning in foot and ankle reconstruction through a validated parametric foot model
  Dr P Zioupos, Dr S Junaid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Musculoskeletal issues in the feet of growing children result in pain and gait problems during skeletal maturity in adolescence. Many of these cases require surgery to relieve pain and prevent disability in adult life such as joint arthritis.
  Bioengineering of innovative functional biomaterials for diagnosis of Q fever
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Q fever is an infection by the intracellular pathogen Coxiella burnetii that can cause a severe flu-like illness. The sensitive and specific diagnosis of Q fever is important for early intervention and for control and management of the disease.
  Development of a new biomaterials platform by combining biomimetics with microfluidics
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology enables engineering of bacterial cells to serve as cell factories for the assembly of novel material such as tailor-made biopolymers attached to protein functions which mediate deposition of inorganics such as found in tooth formation.
  Development of nature-inspired polyester particles for cancer vaccines
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in synthetic biology allows recombinant bacteria to produce protein coated polyester particles. These polyester particles have been utilized as particulate vaccines against bacterial and viral infections.
  Genome editing toward bacterial cell factories for synthesis and assembly of innovative materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial cell factories were developed to demonstrate production of tailor-made biopolymers such as polyesters and polysaccharides.
  Innovative bioseparation resins
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The manufacture of biopharmaceuticals, such as therapeutic proteins, is increasingly facing limitations due to insufficient performance of existing purification processes.
  Modular design and assembly of innovative biopolymer beads as drug delivery platform
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FDA-approved polyhydroxybutyrate self-assembles in engineered bacteria and forms spherical beads of approximately 200 nm in diameter.
