  (BBSRC DTP) Engineering novel stress-resilient microalgae strains as improved platform strains for industrial biotechnology
  Dr J Pittman, Dr P Gallois, Dr A Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microalgae have potential as photosynthetic cell factories for the production of chemicals and metabolites that can be used for industrial applications or as platform strains for the production of recombinant proteins.
  Remodeling of plant proteolytic systems to boost biopharming and disease resistance
  Dr T Bozkurt, Dr F Guder
Application Deadline: 12 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is a self-eating machinery central to cellular homeostasis and coping with stress responses. In addition to facilitating removal of unwanted/foreign proteins in the lysosome, specialized forms of selective autophagy are co-opted to contribute to plant immunity.
  Structural studies of the TPLATE complex
  Dr K Tripsianes
Application Deadline: 20 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The TPLATE complex (TPC) is essential for endocytosis in plants, yet it is evolutionary lost from yeasts and animals, pointing to the fact that endocytosis is mechanistically regulated differently.
  Regulating biosynthesis of the pigments of life
  Dr A Hitchcock, Dr P Jackson, Prof C N Hunter
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tetrapyrroles are often referred to as the pigments of life as they are required for a number of vital cellular processes, including respiration (haems), photosynthesis (chlorophylls), amino acid biosynthesis (vitamin B12), sulphur and nitrogen assimilation (sirohaem) and methanogenesis (cofactor F430).
