  The Taphonomy of Archaeological Molecular Biomarkers
  Prof A.W Pike, Prof G S Attard, Dr S Bray
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Rationale. Molecular biomarkers have the potential to reveal archaeologically invisible aspects of the past.
  Role of the tumour microenvironment in gastric cancer
  Dr A. Boussioutas, Dr R. Busuttil
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Gastric cancer (GC) is the fourth most common cancer globally and 7th in incidence in Australia. It has a poor survival rate which can be attributed to the advanced stage at diagnosis in most patients.
  Targeting the Role of Myeloid Steroid Metabolism in Chronic Inflammation
  Dr R Hardy, Dr P Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Myeloid derived cell populations such as macrophages play a critical role in the early innate immune response, whilst dendritic cells are essential in bridging the progression to an adaptive immune response.
  How do hormones improve learning and memory?
  Dr N Vasudevan, Prof P G Knight
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Deficiencies of thyroid hormone, in particular subclinical hypothyroidism is common throughout the globe. Adult-onset hypothyroidism affects around 8-10% of the population and has been associated with reproductive disorders, anxiety, depression and impairment of memory.
  QUADRAT DTP: Temperature regulation of crop - rhizosphere ecology
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 22 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions and community structure through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  Temperature regulation of non-coding RNA and crop - rhizosphere interactions
  Dr J Dalzell, Dr FL Liu
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Crop plants manipulate rhizosphere interactions through the release of root exudates. Whilst root exudates can attract beneficial microbes, they are also exploited by pathogens and plant parasitic nematodes (PPNs).
  The marine phosphorus cycle and the methane paradox
  Prof J Mcgrath, Dr J Chin
Application Deadline: 16 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project details. Marine microorganisms play major roles in regulating climate and driving global biogeochemical cycling. It has long been recognised that phosphorus (P) availability plays a major role in these processes by controlling marine primary productivity.
  The Application of Genomics and Genetics into a Commercial Strawberry Breeding Programme to Dissect Yield Traits
  Dr J Graham, Dr R Hancock, Prof D Stewart, Dr G Clarkson
Application Deadline: 28 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

An exciting opportunity is available to develop the application of genomics technologies into an established commercial strawberry breeding programme.
  (BBSRC DTP) Development of whole cell biocatalysts for biomass and plastic degradation
  Dr N Dixon, Prof N Scrutton, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Two major societal challenges exist today i) how can we consumable more sustainably and ii) how can we minimise environmental contamination.
  Dual autonomous-inducible genetic regulation for bioprocess control
  Dr N Dixon
Application Deadline: 12 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Dual award PhD in Synthetic and Systems Biology - Manchester and Tsinghua University.
  Precision Medicine DTP – Investigating the metabolic alterations that initiate pre-neoplastic development in zebrafish and in humans
  Research Group: Centre for Inflammation Research
  Dr Y Feng, Dr K Burgess, Dr R Burchmore, Dr G Ho
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. “Warburg metabolism” is characterised by an increased uptake of glucose and its conversion to lactate by glycolysis under normoxia.
  EASTBIO A quantitative approach to understanding regulation of developmental genes by bivalent promoters
  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
  Dr P Voigt, Dr G Sanguinetti
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Histone modifications play key roles in the regulation of gene expression. In embryonic stem cells, promoters of developmental genes carry a signature combination of histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylation (H3K4me3), which is usually found at active promoters, and H3K27me3, a hallmark of repressive chromatin.
  EASTBIO Exploring the Untapped Chemical Potential of the Microbial World – a cellular and synthetic biology approach to organic synthesis
  Research Group: Institute of Quantitative Biology, Biochemistry and Biotechnology
  Dr S Wallace
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Synthetic biology is revolutionising the field of chemical synthesis. Using genetically modified microorganisms this approach enables the production of compounds of industrial importance (e.g.
  EastBio Expanding enzymatic fluorination: development of artificial fluorinases
  Dr A Jarvis, Prof D O'Hagan
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fluorine is an important element in drug design, as it can be used to both increase the half-life of a drug and its bioavailability.
  Resilience of soil surface microbial communities and their ecosystem functions to extreme weather
  Research Group: CENTA - Central England NERC Training Alliance
  Prof G Bending, Dr R Mushinski
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Highlights. Biological soil communities (BSC) at the soil surface perform vital ecosystem functions, including C and N fixation, and protection of the soil surface from erosion.
