  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Microbial chassis engineering for next generation hydrocarbon biofuels manufacturing
  Prof N Scrutton, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of economically viable microbial biofuels is a consequence of global concerns about reducing carbon emissions, dwindling fossil fuel supply and the development of cost effective renewable and sustainable bio-based strategies.
  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.
  (UKM GUP) Microbial genome engineering for sustainable production of bioplastic
  Dr A B Ramzi
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Perennial use of fossil fuel-derived products has brought about alarming concerns of climate change and environmental pollution particularly the harmful effects of recalcitrant waste such as synthetic plastics to the surrounding ecosystem.

This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Centre for Doctoral Training in Freshwater Biosciences and Sustainability (GW4 FRESH CDT) which is offering up to 14 studentships to start in September 2020.
  Generation of transplant tissue following correction of patient stem cells by genomic engineering
  Dr F Manson, Dr RL Taylor, Dr A Adamson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A number of retinal degenerations result from mutations in genes expressed in the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) which lies under the photoreceptors.
  Rational engineering of NMDAR subunit-specific peptide affinity reagents and their pharmacological and functional characterisation as novel subtype specific NMDAR ligands.
  Dr M Soloviev
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The aim of this project is to engineer subunit-specific anti-GluN1/2/A/B polypeptide affinity reagents and to characterise their pharmacological specificity and functional activity on the recombinant NMDARs expressed in heterologous expression systems and on native NMDARs in hippocampal slice preparations.
