  Intelligent Dynamic Flood Response and Recovery Strategy (iD-FRe2S) PhD
  Prof M Rivas Casado, Dr Y Bajón Fernández
Application Deadline: 15 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flood recovery response in urban areas depends on the type of flood (e.g., pluvial, fluvial, groundwater) and the type of water (i.e., clean, grey or black water) affecting the area.
  Functional characterization of Neisserial toxin-antitoxin systems
  Dr N Oldfield, Dr D Turner
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Toxin-antitoxin (TA) systems are commonly found in both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria and comprise a stable toxin able to stall bacterial replication and an antitoxin that neutralises the activity of the toxin.
  Regulation of clostridial solvent production by quorum sensing
  Dr K Winzer, Dr Y Zhang
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The genus Clostridium comprises a large group of strictly anaerobic and metabolically diverse spore-forming bacteria.
  Investigating the role of bioactive lipids in skin health
  Prof A Nicolaou, Prof C A O'Neill
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human skin depends on systemic provision of fatty acids that are important to maintain the integrity of the epidermal barrier as well as to support the associated immune and inflammatory reactions.
  Evolution and biochemistry of photosynthesis - electron transfer reactions, renewable energy production, biotechnology, and chloroplast genomes
  Prof C J Howe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The common theme of our work is the biochemistry and evolution of photosynthesis.

  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 31 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although microbial communities play major biogeochemical roles in all ecosystems, driving carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling, they remain only crudely represented in existing biogeochemical models of these systems.
  FoodBioSystems DTP - DSS4Food - Development of a novel and effective post-harvest decision support system (DSS) for stored cereals to minimise mould spoilage and mycotoxins in food
  Dr A Medina Vaya, Prof R Krska, Prof N Magan, Dr J Meneely
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research Group. FOODBIOSYSTEMS BBSRC DTP. UK grain production represents a value of £2 Billion in ex-farm gate value. Post-harvest losses and rejection due to fungal spoilage and mycotoxin contamination often represents between 5-10% of this value, especially in wet harvest years.
