  A nanotechnology solution to one of drug discovery’s last challenges.
  Prof T R Dafforn, Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Membrane proteins represent 30-40% of the cellular proteome and carry out a wide range of fundamental biological process. These include sensing the outside world, helping maintain cellular structure and homeostasis.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Artificial metalloproteins as novel MRI contrast agents
  Dr M M Britton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Since MRI’s first clinical applications nearly thirty years ago, MRI has become an essential tool for clinical diagnosis. Image contrast is routinely enhanced by the use of a contrast agent (CA), with the overwhelming majority based on complexes of gadolinium, and more recently manganese.
  Investigating Potential Applications of Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors
  Prof J Tucker
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors.
  The design of artificial metalloenzymes with xenobiotic active sites
  Dr P Davies, Dr A Peacock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This PhD project involves the rational design, preparation and assessment of new artificial metalloenzymes as catalysts for efficient molecular synthesis in water.
  Improving the performance of bacteriocins as natural food additives through the use of nanotechnology.
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
One of the major challenges to modern food industry is the demand by consumers of products that look appealing for longer periods of time and the preference by consumers for minimally processed products that do not contain “chemical” preservatives.
  Novel transfection agents as tools for biology
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Genetically engineered cells are valuable tools in cell biology and biotechnology. The ability to express foreign genes (such as GFP) within cells is critical to modern biological research.
  Nucleating the growth of biofilms for biocatalysis with polymer chemistry
  Dr F Fernandez-Trillo, Dr T Overton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Bacteria often attach to surfaces in the form of biofilms. Biofilms represent a problem in many medical and industrial settings as they are physically tough and hard to kill or remove from surfaces.
  DNA-nanotechnology: light-activated molecular machines
  Prof J Tucker, Dr A Peacock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This DNA nanotechnology project involves exploiting biomolecular recognition, using protein and DNA segments as the building blocks, to generate structures that can operate as molecular machines for eventual molecular data storage applications.
  Biological Behaviour of Metal-modified DNA
  Prof J Tucker, Dr S Horswell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This PhD project will attempt to answer the following question. "To what extent can artificial nucleic acids,[1] in which the components of DNA are replaced with metal-containing units, mimic the structure and function of naturally occurring nucleic acids?".
  Sustainable, optimised cleaning by designed release from dishwashing tablets
  Prof E Pelan
Applications accepted all year round
Normal dishwashing tablets are compact hydroscopic tablets or liquids/gels. The tablets are a proven technology, but have several disadvantages, namely they tend to age badly and clump rather than dispersing in the dishwasher.
