  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.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
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.
  Quantitative Risk Assessment for Food Safety (allergens, microbial pathogens or chemical contaminants)
  Prof N Strachan, Dr F Perez-Reche
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will use computational methods to assess risks. An expectation of the society we live in is that the food that we eat is safe.
  Characterisation of SNA-2, a potential target for new drugs against parasitic nematodes.
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spliced leader trans-splicing is a conserved and essential step involved in gene expression in many animal and human parasites that is responsible for the formation of mRNA 5’ ends in these organisms.
  Defining metabolic pathways controlling the response to infection.
  Prof S Spano, Dr M Baldassarre, Dr J Rochford
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

In order to fight off infection, the body must activate a highly orchestrated response to the infectious agent. The ability to respond to infections critically depends on our general health status and the strength of our immune system.
  High mannose exposure on blood cells and development of new therapeutic modalities for sickle cell disease and cancer.
  Prof M A Vickers, Dr H M Wilson
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

When cells reach the end of their lives, often induced by oxidative damage, they display eat me signals to macrophages. Several such signals have been described, but it is widely believed others are yet to be discovered.
  How does meiotic DNA replication shape sexual genetic recombination?
  Dr A Lorenz, Prof A Donaldson
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The mitotic cell cycle, a recurring cellular process consisting of DNA replication followed by cell division, produces two identical daughter cells from a single mother.
  Novel tools for bioengineering gut anaerobes
  Dr K Scott, Dr S Shaw
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioengineering is widely used to incorporate new activities into specific bacteria, for example the industrial production of 1,3-propanediol from glycerol by Clostridium butyricum (1).
