In situ HDX-MS of membrane protein-ligand interactions

The project aims to develop an HDX-MS workflow to profile ligand-membrane protein interactions. The identification of hits with high selectivity constitutes an important landmark for the design and development of novel therapeutics. Read more

Deployable tritium detector using diamond voltaic structures for use in fusion fuel handling facilities

The climate emergency requires significant urgent advancement of a range of technologies to produce cleaner power. Fusion power is a key component of a range of climate change tackling advances which are required, hence the recent significant investment in fusion R&D at the UKAEA and worldwide. Read more

Laser Spectrometry Development for Isotopic Analysis in Environmental and Medical Applications

Summary. This is a fully-funded PhD opportunity based at NPL (London) that will investigate and establish laser spectrometry for measurement of stable isotope ratios and radiocarbon in carbon dioxide and methane, relevant for environmental monitoring and drug discovery applications. Read more

Natural Product Synthesis

Project Summary. This PhD studentship will be focused on the biomimetic total synthesis of complex natural products. The chemical feasibility of proposed biosynthetic pathways towards biologically active diterpene structures will be investigated. Read more

Synthesis of novel binder polymers

The 1 year MSc studentship will be available from October 1st 2022 with a stipend of £16,062 per year and home fees paid. The student will work developing polydienes and functionalised polydienes as new materials for use as binders in rocket propellants. Read more

The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership

 The Oxford Interdisciplinary Bioscience Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) programme is a 4-year DPhil*/PhD programme that aims to equip a new generation of researchers with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle the most important challenges in bioscience research. Read more

GREENCDT Decontamination of carbonaceous nuclear waste streams for segregation and possible re-use

In the next decade, all of the graphite-moderated reactors (Magnox and AGR) in the UK are due to shut down. With additional contributions from Sellafield and research (RSRL and DSRL) reactors, there will be more than 85,000 tonnes of radioactive graphite waste with variable compositions of long-lived (e.g. Read more

GREENCDT Next-generation low-carbon cement wasteforms for safe disposal of radioactive waste

In the UK, over 150,000m3 of radioactive waste (enough to fill 60 Olympic size swimming pools) has been produced to date. Most of this radioactive waste needs conditioning by encapsulating it in cement to prevent release to the biosphere. Read more

“Staggarenes” – synthesis of new extended aromatic materials (CAMMIDGEA_U23SF)

Extended aromatic systems are crucial organic materials and the general class includes discrete materials such as fullerenes through to high order 2D (graphene) and curved (e.g. Read more

Creating novel sophorolipid structures via biological transformation

  Research Group: Biochemical and Bioprocess Engineering
This collaborative PhD project with Holiferm Limited will investigate the post fermentation transformation of the sophorolipid biosurfactant molecule, generating novel structures with interesting and useful properties. Read more

Sustainability assessment of biobased surfactants by fermentation and biomass transformation

  Research Group: Sustainable Industrial Engineering
This PhD project in collaboration with Holiferm Limited will assess the environmental impacts and techno-economic aspects of different types of biosurfactants, produced via a variety of pathways such as fermentation and biomass transformation, and compare these to traditional chemical surfactants in a consistent way – allowing for fair and even evaluation of the environmental profiles/benefits.
