  Characterising Colourful Protein Complexes for Biotechnological Applications
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr A Leney, Prof H J Cooper
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Microalgae are becoming of increasing economic interest due to their application as a natural source of compounds such as lipids, pigments, proteins and polysaccharides.
  Integrating omics, imaging and informatics to develop physiology-based kinetic (PBK) models for perturbation biology in an invertebrate model species
  Prof M Viant, Dr B Campos, Dr C Rivetti, Dr I Sorrell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This exciting 4-year BBSRC iCASE PhD opportunity bridges the University of Birmingham’s (*) metabolomics team and Unilever’s Safety and Environmental Assurance Centre (SEAC), both having state-of-the-art facilities and renowned research programmes, thereby creating an excellent environment for this challenging yet impactful research project.
  Developing new targeted approaches to study human metabolism across the life course
  Prof W Dunn, Prof M Viant
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Introduction and project rationale. Metabolism plays many important roles in humans including providing the precursors for the synthesis of other biochemical (proteins, RNA and DNA), in acute responses to changes in lifestyle and environment and in defining the dynamic phenotype of humans at the molecular level.
  BBSRC MIBTP - Artificial metalloproteins as novel MRI contrast agents
  Dr M M Britton
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Since MRI’s first clinical applications nearly thirty years ago, MRI has become an essential tool for clinical diagnosis. Image contrast is routinely enhanced by the use of a contrast agent (CA), with the overwhelming majority based on complexes of gadolinium, and more recently manganese.
  Investigating Potential Applications of Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors
  Prof J Tucker
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors.
  Total Atmospheric Emissions from the Biosphere
  Dr W J Bloss, Dr L Kramer
Applications accepted all year round
The dominant source of hydrocarbons to the atmosphere is vegetation – biogenic volatile organic compounds or BVOCs. In the atmosphere, BVOCs undergo chemical processing, leading to the formation of secondary pollutants such as ozone and organic aerosol particles, affecting human and environmental health and climate.
  DNA-nanotechnology: light-activated molecular machines
  Prof J Tucker, Dr A Peacock
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This DNA nanotechnology project involves exploiting biomolecular recognition, using protein and DNA segments as the building blocks, to generate structures that can operate as molecular machines for eventual molecular data storage applications.
  Biological Behaviour of Metal-modified DNA
  Prof J Tucker, Dr S Horswell
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This PhD project will attempt to answer the following question. "To what extent can artificial nucleic acids,[1] in which the components of DNA are replaced with metal-containing units, mimic the structure and function of naturally occurring nucleic acids?".
  Development of a spectroscopic assay for Potato Virus Y (PVY)
  Prof J Tucker, Prof T R Dafforn
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Potato virus Y (PVY) is a major and prevalent potato virus, causing necrosis (dead spots in leaves and tubers) that leads to a significant reduction in crop yield.
  Hot stuff? Evaluating the human exposure hazard presented by land contaminated with organic flame retardants
  Prof S J Harrad, Dr M Abdallah
Applications accepted all year round
Chemical flame retardants (FRs) such as polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and chlorinated organophosphates (e.g. tris (2-chloroisopropyl)phosphate – TCIPP) have been used extensively in a wide range of applications worldwide.
