  Design and synthesis of DNA encoded libraries of unnatural peptides to discover specific chemical probes
  Prof M Waring, Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Noble, Dr SL Cobb
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides of allow the rapid identification of protein ligands from huge libraries of genetically encoded peptides, including cyclic peptides.
  Molecular cancer therapeutics activated by radioisotope-generated Cerenkov radiation
  Dr J Knight, Dr R Pal, Dr K Rankin
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The beta-particles emitted by certain medical radioisotopes can travel faster than light through the human body. When this happens, a photonic boom - comparable to a sonic boom – releases energy in the form of Cerenkov radiation which has a characteristic blue glow.
  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.
  PhD Cancer Genetics - Examining how telomere dysfunction drives the evolution of the cancer genome
  Prof D Baird, Dr K Cleal
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Telomeres are structures that cap the ends of eukaryotic chromosomes, preventing the recognition and repair of the natural chromosomal terminus by the DNA damage response (DDR) apparatus.
  Developing New Tools for the Chemical Diversification of Peptide Scaffolds
  Dr SL Cobb, Prof A Kawamura, Prof M Waring
Application Deadline: 6 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Peptides are useful leads for the development of new drugs against a wide range of diseases. They occupy the chemical space between small molecules and antibodies and as such they can reach or selectively inhibit drug targets that these other molecules cannot.
  PhD position - Structural basis of melanogenesis enzymes
  Dr M Soler-Lopez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ref. InnovaXN_17_ESRF. Categorisation. Places of work. - Grenoble, Rhône-Alpes, France. Contract type. Contract, start on 2020-09-07.
  Formation of methyl ketones in distillery fermentations
  Dr A Hill
Application Deadline: 1 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The influence of wood versus stainless steel washbacks in distillery fermentations has been a long-running interest. The natural microbiological flora present within the distillery and in raw materials has also been widely studied, but a number of questions still remain.
  FGFR signalling in breast cancer
  Dr A Chioni
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Growth factors are used during development to convey messages that tell cells to divide, survive, migrate and adopt a particular fate.
  Investigation of a probiotic strain of Lactobacillus plantarum 2025 and the development of novel antibacterials
  Prof A Karlyshev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The rise of multidrug resistant forms of microbial pathogens imposes a serious problem to public health worldwide. The rapid spread of antimicrobial resistance is associated with misuse of conventional antibiotics.
  PhD program in Molecular Inflammation, Molecular Medicine and Advanced Medical Biomarker Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Projects starting October 1, 2020. Application deadline. March 30, 2020.
