  Protein nanocompartments for advanced enzymatic catalysis (PhD in Chemical and Synthetic Biology)
  Dr Y H Lau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Sydney is looking for outstanding candidates who are looking to apply for a PhD position in chemical and synthetic biology, in the group of Dr Yu Heng Lau (http://sydney.edu.au/science/people/yuheng.lau.php).
  Characterising and repurposing cyanobacterial CO2-fixing organelles for metabolic engineering
  Prof LN Liu, Dr J Hartwell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Control of metabolite transport into durable protocells and nanoreactors
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P Beales, Prof L J C Jeuken, Prof A Goldman
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Protocells (or nanoreactors) are seen as a stepping-stone to understanding the origin of life and are being developed to generate novel cell-like biotechnologies.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  Synthetic and Mechanistic Studies into Enzymatic Degradation of Waste Plastics
  Dr L Wong, Dr C F Blanford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastics are a broad range of solid polymeric materials that have found widespread application as industrial components and consumer goods.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  Novel polymers from sugars: synthesis, catalysis and applications
  Dr A Buchard
Application Deadline: 4 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

PhD in organic synthesis, catalysis, synthetic polymer chemistry and the applications of novel polymers. Applications are invited for a 3.5 year PhD studentship in the Buchard group (www.buchardgroup.org) in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Bath, UK.
  Assembling a toolbox to study protein molecular glue kinetics.
  Dr R Doveston
Application Deadline: 21 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Interactions between proteins form a communication network that is an essential feature of life. In many human diseases, especially cancer, one or more these interactions become dysregulated.
  Designing novel composite polysaccharide nanoparticles for combined diagnosis and treatment of cancers
  Dr E Barbu, Dr A Lalatsa
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cancer continues to impose a vast burden with regard to financial costs as well as human suffering but the progress in its treatment is hindered by the limited selectivity and significant side-effects that the current chemotherapy demonstrates, representing a major challenge for modern drug delivery.
