  Expanding the Genetic Code of a Synthetic Yeast
  Prof P Cai, Dr A Green
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The proposed project aims to develop an efficient yeast-based protein expression platform with an expanded genetic code. The standard genetic code of natural organisms comprises 20 canonical amino acids.
  Evolving novel and unconventional methods for making precise angstrom capillaries using 2D materials, and exploring molecular separation through them
  Dr R Boya
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angstrom-scale pores and capillaries have been studied intensively because of their importance in many natural phenomena and use in numerous applications.
  The nanoscale organisation of immune cell surfaces in health and disease
  Prof D Davis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Super-resolution microscopes, celebrated in the 2014 Nobel Prize for Chemistry, are one of the tools that allow us to study immune cells in unprecedented detail.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  PhD in Chemical Ecology
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In response to the near-universal threat of being consumed by insect herbivores, plants have evolved a sophisticated arsenal of chemical defences.
  PhD in the Evolutionary Ecology of Mating Systems
  Dr S Campbell
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mating and breeding systems govern a wide range of evolutionary processes in plants and animals, including gene flow, genetic variation, and the strength of natural selection.
  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.
  SPORES-ON-A-CHIP:Deciphering the responsiveness of environmental spore communities using microfluidic chemostats
  Dr C Stanley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Microbiome, Microscopy and Microfluidics Lab at the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London – the UK’s leading Bioengineering department – has a fully funded PhD studentship to develop Spores-on-a-Chip microfluidic technology to gain a deeper insight into bacterial spore germination.
  Cell-permeable cyclic peptide library generation for target-based screening
  Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Waring, Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides hold enormous promise as chemical tools for selective intervention in biology. They can target chemical space distinct from that of small molecules and their chemical diversity provides high specificity and affinity or target binding.
