  Adhesion force regulation as a mechanism of cell adaptation to tissue stiffness and composition in health and disease
  Dr I Barsukov
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Cells have amazing ability to adapt to different conditions. They form complex multi-cellular tissues, differentiate and migrate.
  Analysis of Heparin Binding Proteins and the Supramolecular Structure of Extracellular Matrix
  Prof D G Fernig, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round
Changes in heparan sulfate structure and location have long been associated with Alzheimer’s disease, but the functional significance of this has remained elusive.
  Are farm animal-associated Salmonella hyper-susceptible to bacteriophage killing?
  Prof J Hinton
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) is a bacterial pathogen that generally causes gastroenteritis in humans.
  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Dr LN Liu
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
With the rapid growth of the global population, the demand for food is steadily increasing. However, advancement in crop yields by traditional breeding has reached its limits.
  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Dr LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round
Compartmentalisation represents an effective strategy used by cells to enhance their activities. By creating physical barriers and compartments, cells sequester the metabolic pathways from the cellular milieu to allow controls of metabolic flux and toxic diffusion.
  Characterising genetic diversity of Wild Rocket (Diplotaxis tenuifolia (L.) DC) and developing a pipeline for marker assisted breeding
  Dr P Walley
Application Deadline: 11 January 2019
Food Security has risen to the top of the international agenda following recent spikes in the price of food and the perceived growing threat to future supplies (see, e.g., the “G8 Action on Food Security and Nutrition” http://www.state.gov/s/globalfoodsecurity/190282.htm).
  Climate change and the evolution of insect mating systems
  Dr SJ Cornell, Dr T Price
Applications accepted all year round
The pervasiveness among animal species of polyandry – i.e., females mating with multiple males – perplexes evolutionary biologists, because it is costly to females (e.g.
  Conservation genetics and infectious disease in Brandt’s bats
  Prof S Paterson, Dr K Zeng, Dr T Lilley
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
There are hundreds of species of bats, each adapted to its environment. This project will use latest methods in genome sequencing to understand bat biodiversity, evolution and resistance to infectious disease.
  Development of metabolomics for understanding AMR in mixed infections
  Prof R Goodacre
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
Without correct antibiotic stewardship we could be cast back to a pre-infective era where we have run out of antibiotics to treat life-threatening infections.
  Disease control and conservation: applying grazing pressure to solve ’The World’s Worst Wildlife Infectious Disease’
  Dr D J S Montagnes, Prof A Fenton
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
BACKGROUND & TIMELINESS. Infectious diseases threaten ecosystem function, biodiversity, and humans through zoonotic infections. Water-borne diseases, in particular, are predicted to increase through anthropogenic factors, including climate-change.
