  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.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
Applications accepted all year round

  How to make molecular machines: modelling ribosome biogenesis
  Prof C Romano, Prof I Stansfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ribosomes are arguably the most important biological molecular machines. Cells can be seen as factories of proteins, with ribosomes being the machines producing them.
  Noisy translation: modelling of stochastic effects on protein production
  Prof C Romano, Prof I Stansfield
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will focus on the mathematical modelling of a fundamental process in the cell. translation of the messenger RNA into a protein.
  Statistical physics of DNA replication
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Romano
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The goal of this project is to apply statistical physics and probability theory to the problem of DNA replication in living cells.
  Ecology of Dynamic Seasonal Salt Lakes
  Dr V Louca, Prof F Kuepper
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Seasonal salt lakes present extreme environments, often characterised by low levels of biodiversity and relatively simple food webs.
  Influence of Plant Genetic Diversity on Biological Nitrification Inhibition
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof J Prosser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nitrification is a crucial step of the nitrogen cycle as it oxidises ammonia into nitrate. This has important economic and environmental consequences, with important loss of nitrogen fertiliser, nitrate leaching into groundwater soil and nitrous oxide production.
  Landscape Genomics of Damselflies in Scotland and Indonesia
  Dr L Lancaster, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr M N Nangoy, Dr R D Dudaniec
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Odonates (damselflies and dragonflies) are charismatic insects which exhibit a diversity of colour forms and adaptations to ecological conditions.
  Supporting Healthy Honey Bees Against Varroa and Viruses: a Scientific Understanding for Practical Solutions
  Dr A Bowman, Dr J Sternberg
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is an increasing need for insect pollination for crop production worldwide. At the same time, there is a global crisis in honey bee health resulting in a shortage of managed bee colonies to satisfy the growing needs of food production.
  Development of ex vivo tissue culture models for developing next-generation biomaterial scaffolds for acellular regenerative medicine.
  Prof I Gibson, Prof N Vargesson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bone repair and regeneration can be influenced by various guidance cues, including pharmacological cues, hypoxia environment and chemical cues released from scaffolds [1-3].
  Using CRISPR genome editing to determine the effects of obesity and hypertension associated polymorphisms
  Dr A MacKenzie, Prof M Delibegovic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Introduction. There is now little doubt that morbid conditions such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes are mechanistically linked.
  What are the mucosal components in fish that give protection towards saprolegniosis and can we stimulate their effectivity via nutritional supplements?
  Prof P Van West, Prof S Martin
Application Deadline: 6 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This industry funded PhD Studentship covers a 3.5-year research position in the frame of a 3.5-year PhD doctoral programme. The PhD student will join a large and vibrant research group that includes about 15 full time researchers such as postdocs and other PhD students, with a further 20 researchers within ICARD.
  Investigating the potential of novel mimetic molecules (Toll-like receptor 4 antagonists) to modulate the microphage polarisation
