  Self-assembly of engineered biopolymers and proteins toward functional materials
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biopolymers and proteins can be bioengineered to self-assemble into defined hierarchical architectures. Here protein engineering will be applied to design proteins, which link biopolymers such as alginate, biopolyester and spider silk to form complex hybrid materials.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Bacteriolysis: how cell envelope-targeting antibiotics trick bacteria to self-digest
  Dr H Strahl von Schulten, Dr A Fenton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The bacterial cell envelope is the target for some of our most successful antibiotics including penicillins and cephalosporins, and also for last-resort antibiotics such as vancomycin and daptomycin used to treat life-threatening multidrug-resistant bacterial infections.
  Metals and host-pathogen interactions: the role of metal handling systems in the human gastrointestinal pathogen Campylobacter jejuni
  Dr J Cavet, Dr D Linton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Campylobacter jejuni is a globally important food-borne pathogen causing an estimated 400-500 million cases of acute human gastroenteritis each year.
  Induction of T cell tolerance #RACE1
  Prof M Dustin, Dr C Hilkens
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Supervisory team. Hub 1. Oxford – Prof. Michael Dustin (Lead Supervisor). Hub 2. Newcastle – Catharien Hilkens. Project Description.
  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.
  (UKM GUP) Microbial genome engineering for sustainable production of bioplastic
  Dr A B Ramzi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial use of fossil fuel-derived products has brought about alarming concerns of climate change and environmental pollution particularly the harmful effects of recalcitrant waste such as synthetic plastics to the surrounding ecosystem.
  Investigating the influence of polyploidy on the evolution of a major human fungal pathogen
  Dr E Ballou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The human fungal pathogen Cryptococcus neoformans undergoes an unusual morphological transition from haploid yeast to highly polyploid Titan cells during infection of the human host.
  Exploring relationships between Wild house mouse ecology and immunology
  Prof J Bradley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Understanding the causes of variability in the immune systems response underpins our knowledge of disease susceptibility, control of infectious diseases and ultimately, healthy aging.
  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.
