  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.
  Mitochondrial protein folding and diseases
  Prof L-Y Lian, Dr D Criddle
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many diseases, including cancer and neurological disease, stem from mitochondrial dysfunctions often triggered by sudden elevation of agents such as calcium and reactive oxygen species.
  Multi-omics investigations for enhanced understanding of NF-κB mediated drug resistance
  Prof R Goodacre, Prof N Perkins, Prof C E Eyers, Dr A R Jones
Application Deadline: 1 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have an established system that can be used to investigate the role of NF-κB signalling in the cancer cell response to DNA replication stress and have generated cell lines which are resistant to treatment with a highly selective and specific CHK1 inhibitor (CCT244747).
  Elucidating Disease Mechanisms using New Approaches to Capture Transient Protein Complexes in the Mitochondria
  Prof L-Y Lian
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitochondria is the powerhouse of the cell. Its malfunction is the cause of many diseases, ranging from cancer to heart and neurological diseases, which become more prevalent with age.
  SOD1 The Key protein for finding a cure for familial Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Investigating the molecular mechanisms and consequences of ANP aggregation for cardiovascular disease; a computational and experimental approach
  Dr J Madine, Dr D J Rigden, Dr M Winn
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) is a cardiovascular hormone synthesised and secreted by myocytes in the atrial wall where it regulates atrial blood volume and vasodilation.
  Methionine adenosyltransferases in disease and regulation of gene expression
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Transmethylation, the transfer of a methyl group from one molecule to another, is a fundamental chemical reaction that plays a central role in important biological processes such as gene expression, cell growth and apoptosis.
  TDP-43 The Key protein for finding a cure for Motor Neurone Disease
  Dr S Antonyuk, Prof S Hasnain
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal neurological disorder with no known cure. It is characterised by selective loss of motor neurons in the spinal cord and cortex.
  Investigation of the role of post-translational modifications in hypoxia signalling
  Dr V See, Prof C E Eyers
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The hypoxia signalling pathway is required for the adaptation of cells to a low oxygen environment, which cells can experience in various physiological and pathological circumstances related to high altitude, development, wound healing and cancer.
  Developing novel formulations and materials for transmucosal drug delivery
  Prof V Khutoryanskiy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mucosal routes of drug administration offer numerous advantages including ease of application, non-invasive nature and sometimes possibility of targeting particular organs.
  Development of pulmonary dosage forms for improved antibacterial activity
  Dr H Al-Obaidi
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"Conventional formulations for drug delivery to the lungs are limited to less than a few milligrams as a fine particle fraction.
  Atomistic Modelling Studies of New Materials for Lithium Batteries
  Prof M S Islam
Application Deadline: 26 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Bath is inviting applications for a PhD opportunity in the Department of Chemistry under the supervision of Prof Saiful Islam.
  Designing colloidal films and membranes with complex interactions
  Dr M Haw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Porous films and membranes are important for applications such as adsorbing, separating and storing gases, cleaning water and soils, sensor devices and many others.
  Molecular aggregates in solution and their translation into the crystalline phase of pharmaceuticals
  Dr K Edkins, Dr E Bichenkova
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) have to be in the solid state to be formulated, and due to improved stability, the crystalline phase is preferred.
