  Combining Synthetic Biology and Modelling to Understand and Predict Evolution
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mutations, and their effects on organismal fitness, lie at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution. Because of its central role in determining evolutionary outcomes, much experimental and theoretical effort has been put into describing the fitness effects of mutations.
  Data-driven and Model-based Design and Computational Analysis of Systems and Synthetic Biology
  Research Group: Applied Computing
  Dr S Konur, Prof M Gheorghe, Dr R Hamed
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding how biological cells and organisms function is a very challenging task, as biological systems are getting more complex.
  Data-driven design of biological systems – Computational synthetic biology
  Dr G Misirli
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology has emerged as an engineering field lately, with the aim of designing novel biological systems. Small biological components can be used together to create devices and systems.
  (BBSRC DTP) Predictive Genotype-Phenotype-Fitness Mapping in E.coli
  Dr M Lagator, Dr J-M Schwartz, Dr P Day
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Genotype-phenotype-fitness mapping, or the connection between genetic mutations and their effects on organismal fitness, lies at the heart of understanding and predicting evolution.
  Fostering development of ‘smart’, responsive therapeutics against cancer-related microRNAs.
  Dr E Bichenkova, Prof D Clarke, Dr H Aojula
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Short functional non-coding microRNAs are implicated in many types of cancer, and thus can be used as biological targets for development of more selective and powerful anticancer therapies.
  The synthetic littermate project: How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain?
  Dr SP Wilson, Prof AJ Prescott
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

How do natural experiences shape the functional organisation of the developing brain? To address this question directly, we have been developing a novel robotic technology - the synthetic littermate (or ’surrogate’).
  Exploiting druggability host spots in protein phosphatase targets
  Dr L Tabernero, Prof D Procter, Dr S Butterworth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the past years the use of virtual screening or computer-based screening of compound libraries against selected targets has expanded exponentially the boundaries of drug discovery.
