  Developing a virus-like particle (VLP) Polio vaccine
  Dr G Mulley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Rationale. Poliovirus is a non-enveloped RNA virus, spread via the faecal-oral route, that causes the infectious disease Poliomyelitis (Polio).
  EASTBIO: Understanding the pathogenesis of life-threatening Burkholderia cenocepacia infections using blocking antibodies and novel chemistry scaffolds to untangle complex aspects of AMR
  Prof A Porter, Dr S Palliyil, Prof M Jaspars
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisors. Professor Andy Porter (University of Aberdeen). https://www.abdn.ac.uk/people/a.porter. Dr Soumya Palliyil (University of Aberdeen).
  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.
  (BBSRC DTP) Mechanism of early steps in protein synthesis by cryoEM imaging of supramolecular complexes
  Dr A Roseman, Prof G D Pavitt, Prof C Baldock
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to understand the mechanism and control of protein synthesis in eukaryotic cells at the molecular level, particularly focused around the role of the eukaryotic translation initiation factors eIF2, eIF5 and eIF2B.
  Protease-resistant antimicrobial peptides to target bacterial and fungal pathogens
  Dr J Bella, Dr L Tabernero
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Antimicrobial resistance is quickly becoming a serious global health problem. The emergence of multidrug-resistant microbial strains combined with the drying up of the antibiotic pipeline in the pharmaceutical industry has significantly worsened the situation in recent years.
  GW4 BioMed MRC DTP PhD studentship: Structure of ART Toxins: understanding toxicity through host receptor interactions
  Prof R Mrsny, Dr G Masuyer
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the ‘GW4 BioMed MRC Doctoral Training Partnership’ which is offering up to 18 studentships for entry in September 2020.
  Cloning and expression of topoisomerase genes from Trypanosoma brucei (SteverdingD-2U19SF)
  Dr D Steverding
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topoisomerases (TOPs) are essential enzymes that catalysis topological changes in DNA. TOPs are pivotal to cell survival and therefore inhibitors have been developed to target these enzymes both for antimicrobial and anti-cancer chemotherapy.
  EASTBIO: The role of secreted tumour suppressor SPZ1 in Papillomavirus E7-mediated oncogenesis
  Prof J Haas, Dr K Cuschieri
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Currently, 112 different non-human papillomavirus (PV) types are known, which have been isolated from a broad range of 54 host species including cattle, canines, horses, rodents, bats, dolphins and primates.
  Development of a synthetic platform to derive small antibodies against user-defined ligands
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr E Cachat, Prof S Rosser
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in recombinant antibody technologies have greatly facilitated the development of novel antibody formats such as single-chain variable fragments (ScFvs) [1] and single domain nanobodies [2].
  Molecular mechanisms of influenza virus replication
  Prof E Fodor
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Influenza viruses are important human and animal pathogens; they cause widespread clinical and veterinary disease and have a considerable economic impact.
