  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.
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round
Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
  PhD Industrial CASE studentship in computational modelling of the Human Microbiome
  Prof F Falciani, Dr AC Darby
Application Deadline: 15 March 2019
Project title. - Development and application of computational network approaches for modelling the Human Microbiome. We offer a PhD studentship focusing on the development and application of computational network approaches for modelling the Human Microbiome1,2.
  Understanding and dissecting microbial communities with Raman spectroscopy
  Prof R Goodacre
Application Deadline: 28 February 2019
We have shown that it is possible to label bacteria with heavy isotopes of carbon (13C) and nitrogen (15N) and this incorporation within cellular biomass of heavy isotopes has led to significant shifts in certain vibrational modes from amino acids and nucleic acids that can be readily detected with Raman spectroscopy.
  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.
  The Design and Fabrication of Biocide-free Antifouling Materials
  Dr C Crick, Dr E García-Tuñón
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
Materials that are continually submerged in water/marine environments (e.g. vessel hulls, underwater platforms, and fluid transport networks) form an essential part of highly valued technical systems, as well as local and national infrastructure.
  The Eco-Immunology of Wild Mice
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
The immune responses that wild animals make contribute to their fitness, but what those immune responses are – and how they differ from those of laboratory animals – is hardly known.
  The Biology of Parasitism in Parasitic Nematodes
  Prof M Viney
Applications accepted all year round
We work on the biology of parasitic nematode worms, particularly Strongyloides spp. The recent, detailed characterisation of the Strongyloides genome (Hunt et al.
  The role of modified microRNAs in fibrosis during ageing
  Dr K Whysall, Prof G Bou-Gharios
Application Deadline: 22 November 2019
MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs that regulate the expression of multiple mRNAs posttranscriptionally (Brown & Goljanek-Whysall, Aging Res Rev 2015).
  Examining the host-environmental interface of Histoplasma capsulatum to understand the implications of disease management within endemic populations.
  Dr C Scantlebury, Prof A J McCarthy, Dr T Helgason
Applications accepted all year round
Histoplasmosis is an endemic disease with serious consequences to equine and human health. This dimorphic fungus favours nitrogen rich environments, and generates highly resistant spores.
