  Chemo-enzymatic Synthesis and Potential Applications of Novel Heterocyclic Alkaloids
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is rising to dangerously high levels in all parts of the world. In Europe alone, drug-resistant bacteria are estimated to cause 25,000 deaths annually and cost more than US$1.5 billion every year in healthcare expenses and productivity losses.
  Developing an enzymatic toolbox to make complex modified peptides
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr W Houssen, Dr L Trembleau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The pharmaceutical industry has identified a major gap in its portfolio. On the one hand, they are excellent at discovering small molecules that act via a lock and key type mechanism.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

  Quantitative Risk Assessment for Food Safety (allergens, microbial pathogens or chemical contaminants)
  Prof N Strachan, Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use computational methods to assess risks. An expectation of the society we live in is that the food that we eat is safe.
  Immune Responses to Salivary Biomarkers as Tools to Understand the Epidemiology of Vector Borne Diseases
  Dr J Sternberg, Dr A Bowman
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Haematophagous (blood-feeding) arthropods may act as vectors for serious parasitic diseases to humans and livestock. Examples include ticks (Lyme diseases, tick-borne encephalitis, theileriosis), Hemipteran Bugs (Chagas disease), Tsetse Flies (African trypanosomiasis), Mosquitoes (malaria, filariasis, dengue etc).
  Influence of Plant Genetic Diversity on Biological Nitrification Inhibition
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrification is a crucial step of the nitrogen cycle as it oxidises ammonia into nitrate. This has important economic and environmental consequences, with important loss of nitrogen fertiliser, nitrate leaching into groundwater soil and nitrous oxide production.
  Research into Microbially Enhanced Mine Water Geothermal Energy
  Dr A Mitchell
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Low enthalpy geothermal heat recovery and storage in abandoned flooded coal mines is an area of increasing interest as we move towards decarbonised heating and energy systems in both domestic and industrial settings.
  Novel microbes and their biochemistry in C. elegans
  Prof S Mani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Mani Laboratory @The Albert Einstein College of Medicine, INC has an open position for a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow to be part of an expanding research program on novel aspects of the microbial biofilms and C.
  Whole genome sequencing to investigate the mechanisms of fluoroquinolone-resistance in field isolates of Salmonella spp.: a nationwide study of recreational areas
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group
  Dr C Walker, Dr C O'Kane, Dr H McRobie, Dr J Sullivan
Applications accepted all year round
