  Biology and genetics of reproduction in filamentous fungi
  Prof P S Dyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Filamentous fungi are of importance in the food, industrial and medical sectors and have important roles in the ecology of natural ecosystems.
  (BBSRC DTP) Developing enhanced production and separation techniques for glycolipid biosurfactants
  Research Group: Sustainable Industrial Engineering
  Dr J Winterburn, Dr P A Martin
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Glycolipid biosurfactants are naturally occurring amphiphiles with a range of unique properties including biodegradability and tolerance of a wide range of temperature and pH.
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Discovery and Engineering of Expanded Halogenases for Late Stage Enzymatic Functionalisation
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof P Barran
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project aims to discover and engineer novel enzymes (biocatalysts) that can affect regioselective halogenation of complex molecules enabling more efficient and environmentally sustainable production of pharmaceuticals which are urgently required to combat disease.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Exploitation of P450 BM3 variants for production of valuable drug metabolites
  Prof A Munro, Prof D Leys
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have recommended that human drug metabolites (as well as their parent drugs) should be subject to testing for safety/toxicity.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Intelligent Engineering of Bacterial Genomes
  Prof R Breitling, Prof E Takano
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to establish methodology for the intelligent engineering of biological hosts for the production of high-value drugs and chemicals.
  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of whole cell biocatalysts for biomass and plastic degradation
  Dr N Dixon, Prof N Scrutton, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two major societal challenges exist today i) how can we consumable more sustainably and ii) how can we minimise environmental contamination.
  (BBSRC DTP) Discovery and Editing Pathways to New Antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Prof D Leys, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics. The majority of antibiotics that are used to treat infectious diseases today are small molecules produced by microorganisms, called natural products, or derivatives thereof.
  (BBSRC DTP) Functional characterisation of orphan cytochrome P450 enzymes in Mycobacterium tuberculosis
  Prof A Munro, Dr S Hay, Prof D Leys, Prof J Waltho
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) poses a major threat to human health worldwide and remains the biggest killer of humans among infectious diseases.
