  Deciphering the Built Environment Microbiome (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/SHERRY)
  Dr A Sherry
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The impact that the construction of new dwellings has on our rural and urban environments is still in its infancy. Understanding this is of the utmost importance as the UK government has pledged to build half a million homes between 2020 and 2022 to meet the demand of a growing population.
  Nano-Engineered Functional Biomaterials for the Built Environment (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/JIANG)
  Dr Y Jiang
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

Developing environmentally friendly and sustainable biomaterials for the built environment is necessary to address climate change and reduce carbon dioxide emission.
  Using Synthetic Biology to Engineer an Industrially Relevant Chassis for the Built Environment (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/JAMES)
  Dr P James
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world’s first research Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment (HBBE http://bbe.ac.uk/) is a £8M initiative between Northumbria and Newcastle Universities funded by Research England that aims to catalyse innovation to develop a building industry fit for the 4th industrial revolution.
  Artificial microbial photosynthesis: development of biohybrid systems to produce solar chemicals and fuels from waste-carbon (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BLACK2)
  Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Solar energy is the most abundant energy source and can act as a green and sustainable energy supply. It is worth noting that one-hour sunlight can satisfy the one-year energy demand of the entire world.
  Waste Treatment and Microbial Conversion to Energy Rich Compounds (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BLACK1)
  Prof G Black
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Increasing concerns over usage of fossil resources and its effect on climate change, there has been much interest in producing chemicals and materials from renewable feedstocks mainly non-food-based biomass or directly from CO2.
  Novel Bioinformatics and Artificial Intelligence approaches for microbiome analysis (Ref: ET20/HLS/APP/BASHTON)
  Dr M Bashton
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The microbiome, the collective genomic entity of all microbiota - bacteria, archaea, fungi, protozoa, and viruses of an environment holds an immense amount of information, a considerable amount of improvement with respect to data analysis and real-time interpretation is still needed to bring research out of the lab and into everyday usage in our home environment and health system.

  Dr M Dade-Robertson
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. 1 October 2020 for 3 years. Overview. We are pleased to announce a PhD studentship in the Hub for Biotechnology in the Built Environment working on the Living Textile Interface project.
  PhD Studentship in Host-Microbial Interaction – Understanding how diet and the microbiome influence health and disease in preterm infants
  Dr C Stewart
Application Deadline: 27 May 2020

  The role of the diet in affecting neurocognition and mood through effects on the production of neuromodulators by the intestinal microbiome (Ref: SF20/APP/FORD)
  Prof D Ford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacteria can produce metabolites that have a neuromodulatory function or direct neuroactive properties. The best-studied examples include free fatty acids, which activate microglial cells, and the neurotransmitter GABA.
  Phage therapy as a treatment of Equine Strangles, and causative bacterial pathogen Streptococcus equi (ref: SF20/APP/SMITH4)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Streptococcus equi is an important equine bacterial pathogen causing the disease ‘strangles’, which affects both Thoroughbred and non-Thoroughbred horses around the world.
  Bacteriophage role in the establishment of preterm infants’ gut microbiota (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH3)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Survival of very preterm infants has increased over the last 20 years, but late onset sepsis (LOS) and necrotising enterocolitis (NEC) remain a major cause of death and ongoing developmental problems in this population.
  The role of bacteriophages in Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection in Chronic Respiratory disease. (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH1)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a key opportunistic respiratory pathogen in patients with cystic fibrosis and non-cystic fibrosis bronchiectasis.
  Temperate bacteriophages and Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR) (Ref: SF20/APP/SMITH2)
  Dr D Smith
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bacterial genomes are studded with prophage regions, some that can be stimulated to produce active phages that horizontally transfer their genomes between related bacterial species.
  Understanding the effects of lung disease and vaping to the lung through breath-based bioanalytics (Ref: SF20/APP/MOSCHOS4)
  Dr S Moschos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Your breath contains a vast amount of information about you. whether you’ve had a drink, damaged your liver, your blood blood glucose levels, even type of breast cancer treatment can be assessed through breath.
  The synthesis and evaluation of novel esters for the detection of pathogenic microorganisms (Ref: SF20/APP/TURNBULL)
  Dr G Turnbull
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The detection and differentiation of pathogenic microorganisms, those which cause disease in human beings and animals, routinely relies on the observation of a change of colour in the growth medium caused by the action of microbial enzymes on artificial substrates.
