  (BBSRC DTP CASE) Design of a light-driven biocatalyst
  Prof D Leys, Dr S Hay
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Illumination is able to unlock a wide range of photochemical reactions, but light is rarely used by living organisms. In fact, to date only three light dependent enzymes have been described in detail.
  PhD in Chemical Biology -- Neuropeptide Research -- University of Vienna
  Prof M Muttenthaler
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Neuropeptides are key mediators in many biological functions and understanding their interaction with target proteins is fundamental to unravel the underlying mechanism of diseases.
  (A*STAR) Engineering pathways to next generation antibiotics
  Prof J Micklefield, Dr A Green
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The provision of new antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and to treat neglected tropical diseases (NTD), which are problematic in the developing world, is a major global challenge.
  The chemical glycobiology of carbohydrate metabolism
  Prof R Field, Prof S Flitsch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Carbohydrates are widespread in nature and fulfil many important biological functions. However, the biology of carbohydrates is much less well explored than that of nucleic acids and proteins.
  St Andrews Global PhD Scholarship - Developing Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy for Studying Biomolecular Structures and Dynamics under Native Conditions
  Dr B E Bode
Application Deadline: 13 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Structural investigation of biomolecules is fundamental to the elucidation of their functional mechanisms. In the dogma of modern structural biology, structure determines biomolecular function.
  Targeting ubiquitin ligases with small molecules to develop new therapeutics (CHANTRYAU20SCIO)
  Dr A Chantry, Dr A M Hemmings
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ubiquitination (the addition of ubiquitin to specific proteins) is a key regulatory mechanism for cellular processes such as protein turnover via the ubiquitin-proteasome system (UPS), trafficking, autophagy, subcellular localisation, transcription and DNA repair.
  Taking back control of the immune system (BEEKMANAU20SCIEC)
  Dr A Beekman, Prof M Searcey
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the hallmarks of cancers is their ability to evade the immune system. Most tumours in the body are recognised and destroyed by the immune system, but cancer cells overproduce proteins which turn off the immune system and underproduce proteins which turn on the immune system.
  Novel strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of snakebites
  Dr S Vaiyapuri
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Snakebites represent a major neglected tropical disease affecting several million people worldwide and resulting in as many as 150000 deaths each year.
  Probing the Chemical Space of Heterobifunctional Molecules Targeting the Epigenome (GTA 20 HOD)
  Dr J Hodgkinson, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 4 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The development of new chemical tools and probes is vital to understanding the functions of multifaceted proteins and enzymes in the cell and their role in disease.
  PhD inChemistry - Protein structural mimics through chemical ligation
  Dr D Thomson
Application Deadline: 1 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project targets the interface between chemistry and biology. Chemistry has provided many reactions that can be used to join complex molecules together, these ‘ligation’ reactions are useful, but often leave behind chemical functionality that serves no purpose other than to connect fragments together.
