  Investigating Photosynthesis in Nannochloropsis – An Important Algal Genus for Biofuel Production
  Dr D J Gilmour
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the key insights from phylogenetic studies of eukaryotic microorganisms is the enormous diversity within the microalgal group with green algae being similar to plants and other groups such as diatoms being very different.
  Investigating the molecular basis of this adhesion and the development of tetraspanin-based reagents for preventing bacterial infections
  Dr L J Partridge
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The tetraspanins are a diverse, conserved family of eukaryotic membrane proteins. Their principal feature is the ability to form dynamic multi-molecular assemblies in cell membranes known as tetraspanin enriched microdomains (TEM).
  Metabolomic studies of E. coli adaptation from anaerobic to aerobic growth
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Escherichia coli is a commensal organism that lives in the human gut. Occasionally it gives rise to food poisoning incidents, but mainly it is important for digestion and uptake of nutrients.
  Photoreceptor regulation of plant development
  Dr S Casson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth and development is highly dependent on the light environment. Light provides energy to drive photosynthesis but light quality and quantity is also perceived by photoreceptors, which signal to regulate responses enabling plants to adapt to their environment.
  Redesigning the absorption and storage of solar energy for photosynthesis
  Prof C N Hunter, Dr A Hitchcock, Dr D Swainsbury
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the fundamental biochemical process on Earth that converts solar energy into chemical energy, releasing the oxygen we breathe, providing the food we eat and absorbing the carbon dioxide we produce.
  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).
  Structural biology of the intrinsically disordered protein SH2B1
  Prof M P Williamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Signalling between the outside of the cell and the inside uses a complicated network of interacting systems. One common signalling mechanism uses receptor tyrosine kinases.

  The molecular basis of a genetic susceptibility gene in Alzheimer’s disease: the case of cystatin C
  Dr R Staniforth
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Degenerative diseases associated with ageing occur sporadically and are associated with the misfolding and aggregation of a number of proteins in vivo.
