  New Force Field Development to Improve Conformational Searches in Zeolites (EPSRC stipend + £2000 top up p.a.)
  Prof N Allan, Prof A J Mulholland
Application Deadline: 19 May 2019
Zeolites are vitally important materials used as catalysts and adsorbents in the processing or renewable, oil and gas. The origin of the unique behaviour of zeolites, whether as selective adsorbents or as catalysts for particular transformations.
  Data mining for microbial adaptation to climate change - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr G Barker
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Microbes are key members of nutrient and energy cycles in all global ecosystems. Whole meta genome DNA sequencing is increasingly used to characterise microbial ecosystems and vast amounts of data are deposited in the public domain every year.
  Atmospheric dispersion of greenhouse gases using novel tracers - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Prof S O'Doherty, Dr M Rigby, Prof P Simmonds
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Emissions of greenhouse gases are now widely recognised as a potential threat to the long-term stability of the Earth’s climate.
  PhD studentship in Biogeochemistry: Investigating the routing of hydrogen from water and feed to ruminant tissues
  Dr M Roffet-Salque
Application Deadline: 21 April 2019
This fully-funded 4-year PhD studentship is a unique opportunity to carry out interdisciplinary research at the University of Bristol.
  Does CO2 Enrichment of Temperate Forests also Affect Soil N Cycling and the Emission of Nitrous Oxide (N2O)? - MScR in Global Environmental Challenges
  Dr J House, Dr F Sgouridis
Application Deadline: 1 August 2019
About the Project. Increasing atmospheric CO2 concentrations in temperate forests may affect soil nitrogen (N) cycling processes due to the increased demand for nitrogen availability by tree photosynthesis.
  Actin-dependent mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs
  Dr B Mogessie
Applications accepted all year round
Every human life starts when an egg is fertilised by a sperm. Fertilisable eggs are produced from oocytes by a specialised form of cell division called meiosis (1).
  Spatial control of autophagosome biogenesis
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round
Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that promotes cell survival during episodes of nutrient/growth factor stress. Autophagy is involved in many human diseases, so complete understanding of this process is needed.
  The endosomal network in health and disease
  Prof P J Cullen
Applications accepted all year round
Approximately 25% of the human genome encodes for integral membrane proteins (around 5,500 proteins). Efficient intracellular transport of these proteins, and associated proteins and lipids (together termed ‘cargos’), is essential for organelle biogenesis, maintenance, and quality control.
  Molecular basis of pathogenesis: Structure based design of novel therapeutics for the treatment of infectious diseases
  Prof R L Brady
Applications accepted all year round
Through the study of protein structure, primarily using protein crystallography but also electron microscopy and small-angle X-ray scattering, we aim to probe crucial biomolecular interactions central to a variety of diseases.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round
Transcription-coupled DNA repair (TCR) pathways prioritise the repair of certain lesions in "active" genes. These pathways help maintain genome integrity throughout the lifetime of multi-cellular organisms, and thus help prevent the occurrence of mutation that might cause cancer or other disorders.
