  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in the Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene-NOWNANO)
University of Manchester & Lancaster University, North West Nanoscience Doctoral Training Centre. Graphene NOWNANO is a recently established Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) at the University of Manchester in partnership with Lancaster University.
  Wellcome Trust 4-year PhD Programme in Quantitative and Biophysical Biology
Have you trained in physics, engineering, mathematics or computer science?. Would you like to use your skills to tackle fascinating and important problems in biology?.
  (A*STAR) Engineering of virus-like particles and novel multimeric assemblies as scaffolds for presentation of viral antigens
  Prof J P Derrick, Dr F Hayes
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will use structural vaccinology to investigate the potential for de novo engineering of large, synthetic macromolecular assemblies.
  (BBSRC DTP) Cardiac Physiology in the World’s Oldest Vertebrate, The Greenland Shark
  Dr H Shiels, Dr G Galli, Dr A Stevens, Dr C Pinali
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The life span of the Greenland shark is at least 272 years and may be as long as 500 years making this animal the longest living vertebrate on the planet1.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing enhanced production and separation techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Dr J Winterburn, Dr Peter Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  (BBSRC DTP) Elucidating the responses to nascent protein misfolding and aggregation stress
  Prof C M Grant, Prof S Hubbard, Prof M Ashe
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
The aim of this study is to characterize the proteins that aggregate during nascent protein misfolding and to investigate how cells mitigate the damaging effects of aggregate formation.
  (BBSRC DTP) Exploiting plant diversity to make a new biomaterials
  Prof S Turner, Prof V Allan, Prof S Flitsch
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
It is clear that there is now enormous pressure to develop much better replacements for plastics synthesised from fossil fuels.
  (BBSRC DTP) Improving phosphorus use management in UK grasslands through soil-plant interactions
  Dr V Niasar, Prof D Johnson, Dr S Lee
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This ambitious project will lead to a major shift in how soil phosphorus (P), is managed in UK grasslands.
  (BBSRC DTP) Metal handling systems in metal-reducing bacteria: Application to engineering high activity biometallic catalysts for clickable chemistries
  Dr J Cavet, Prof J Lloyd, Prof N Turner
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
This project will contribute to a multidisciplinary research team focussed on the development of a new approach to making high value chemicals for a range of industries (including pharmaceuticals), in the vibrant and rapidly developing area of industrial biotechnology.
  (BBSRC DTP) Partitioning primary and secondary changes of gene expression caused by gene mutations
  Dr D Talavera, Prof G D Pavitt, Dr J-M Schwartz
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Control of gene expression is a complex cell process, which involves balancing both the synthesis and the degradation of RNA and protein so as to establish optimal levels of each protein.
