  Control of antibiotic production through synthetic biology of bacterial hormone signalling
  Prof E Takano, Prof R Breitling
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an urgent need for new antibiotics due to an increase in antibiotic resistance. To produce these essential drugs efficiently in biotechnological systems, we need to have a better understanding of the regulatory mechanisms of antibiotic production.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  (BBSRC DTP) Novel antimicrobial discovery using high-throughput pathway assembly and robotics
  Prof E Takano, Prof A Munro, Prof R Breitling
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent advances in molecular biology, in particular our improved ability to read and (most importantly) write genomic sequences, have led to renewed excitement in the area of genetic engineering, i.e.
  Using synthetic biology to understand the evolution of antibiotic resistance
  Dr M Lagator, Dr C Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Imagine an architect, tasked with converting an old stadium into a building with a different function, without demolishing it.
  Protein nanocompartments for advanced enzymatic catalysis (PhD in Chemical and Synthetic Biology)
  Dr Y H Lau
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Sydney is looking for outstanding candidates who are looking to apply for a PhD position in chemical and synthetic biology, in the group of Dr Yu Heng Lau (http://sydney.edu.au/science/people/yuheng.lau.php).
  Improving Photosynthetic Efficiency - Engineering and Evolution of Light-Harvesting Complexes via Synthetic Biology
  Dr D Canniffe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Photosynthesis is the ultimate source of food and energy for almost all forms of life. Using sunlight as the energy input, photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the atmosphere generating the oxygen and carbohydrate that support complex life.
  Breaking frontiers for the development and production of custom-made fuels through synthetic biology and fuel design – a multidisciplinary approach (Advert reference: RDF20/EE/MCE/Azimov)
  Dr U Azimov
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The UK transportation sector heavily relies upon fossil fuel products (96%) and is the main contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
  Engineering synthetic ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  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.
  Synthetic biology toward innovative virus-like particles
  Prof Bernd Rehm
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Virus-like particles (VLP) are self-assembled viral proteins that do not contain genetic material and are non-infectious. VLPs have been successfully developed into particulate vaccines for prevention of viral infections such as human papilloma virus or Hepatitis B.
