  Bioengineering of bacterial CO2-concentrating system for improved photosynthesis
  Prof LN Liu, Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The single-cell photosynthetic bacteria, cyanobacteria, account for over 25% of global carbon fixation, thanks for their powerful CO2-concentrating machinery.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
  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.
  Development of a new biomaterials platform by combining biomimetics with microfluidics
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology enables engineering of bacterial cells to serve as cell factories for the assembly of novel material such as tailor-made biopolymers attached to protein functions which mediate deposition of inorganics such as found in tooth formation.
  Development of nature-inspired polyester particles for cancer vaccines
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in synthetic biology allows recombinant bacteria to produce protein coated polyester particles. These polyester particles have been utilized as particulate vaccines against bacterial and viral infections.
  Modular design and assembly of innovative biopolymer beads as drug delivery platform
  Prof Bernd Rehm, Dr D Wibowo
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The FDA-approved polyhydroxybutyrate self-assembles in engineered bacteria and forms spherical beads of approximately 200 nm in diameter.
  Feedback-responsive protocells
  Dr P Beales
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Feedback in chemical systems can give rise to clocks, bistable switches or oscillations; all of these features are employed by living cells in order to generate robust decisions and outputs while existing in a deafening background of thermodynamic noise.
  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.
  PhD candidate in synthetic chemistry within the Sensor Engineering group of the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Maastricht University
  Dr B van Grinsven, Dr K Eersels, Dr D Hewitt, Dr H Diliën
Application Deadline: 11 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research within the Sensor Engineering research group of Maastricht University is focused on developing innovative sensor technologies for implementation in diverse fields ranging from the healthcare sector to the food industry.
  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.
