  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

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.
  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.
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental ancient DNA analysis of Lateglacial and Early Holocene contexts in Ireland and Scotland
  Dr L Girdland Flink, Dr G Plunkett
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to refine our understanding of Lateglacial and Early Holocene biodiversity and ecosystems in Scotland and Ireland using ancient DNA extracted from ancient sediments (sedimentary ancient DNA, or sedaDNA).
  QUADRAT DTP: Environmental change and the epidemiology of a multi-host pathogen: Leptospira in Africa
  Dr M Moseley, Prof E Morgan
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multi-host pathogens include some the most important pathogens of livestock and humans. These pathogens are maintained in complex ecological reservoirs that are comprised of epidemiologically connected animal host populations and environments (Viana et al., 2014).
  QUADRAT DTP: Functional parasite epigenomics and transcriptomics for improving honey-bee health in a global pollination crisis
  Dr M Wenzel, Dr C Meharg
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Pollination is an immensely important ecosystem service that not only contributes to maintaining biodiversity in wild ecosystems but is also indispensable for meeting ever-increasing demands on agriculture to sustain global food security.
  QUADRAT DTP: Impact of climate change on stability of sponge-microbe symbiosis
  Dr C Gubry-Rangin, Prof M Emmerson
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project aims to understand the biodiversity and stability (resilience and resistance) of sponge-microbe symbiosis following multiple environmental perturbations influenced by climate change.
  QUADRAT DTP: Modelling metagenomics-derived microbial traits in soils under climate change
  Dr A Malik, Dr T Caruso
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Microorganisms are critical in terrestrial carbon cycling because their growth and activity largely control the fate of recent plant carbon inputs as well as protected soil organic carbon (SOC).
  QUADRAT DTP: The cost of being a fussy eater – Oligolectic pollinators and environmental change
  Dr F Manfredini, Dr L Scott
Application Deadline: 29 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Insect pollinators provide fundamental ecosystem services to natural and human-dominated communities. Different pollinators have different abilities to cope with environmental changes, due to differences in their behaviour, physiology and life-history traits.
  Clinical and molecular correlates of response to first line treatment in oral lichen planus
  Dr K Hijazi, Prof J Gibson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oral lichen planus is a chronic disease of the lining of the mouth that causes pain and increases the risk of oral cancer. The negative impact of oral lichen planus on quality of life has been proven.
  Determination of the function of inherited refractive error risk factor genes in the embryonic development of the eye.
  Prof L Erskine, Prof N Vargesson, Prof M Collinson
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Refractive errors, such as short-sightedness (myopia) and long-sightedness (hyperopia), are becoming epidemic, and in parts of southeast Asia around 80% of people have short-sight.
  Do rural-dwellers develop more aggressive breast and prostate cancer than those living in the city?
  Prof P Murchie, Dr Z Miedzybrodzka, Prof V Speirs, Dr R Vieira
Application Deadline: 13 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type
