  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 a carbazole-base biosensor for the measurement of methacrylate intermediates
  Dr H Deng, Dr L Trembleau
Application Deadline: 14 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This will be a fully funded studentship for a EU/UK applicant who is keen to develop a sustainable solution to an industry need. Methacrylate (MA) is an organic compound and is produced industrially on a large scale as a precursor.[1] Over 3 million tons of MA are produced annually.
  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

  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.
  What are the mucosal components in fish that give protection towards saprolegniosis and can we stimulate their effectivity via nutritional supplements?
  Prof P Van West, Prof S Martin
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This industry funded PhD Studentship covers a 3.5-year research position in the frame of a 3.5-year PhD doctoral programme. The PhD student will join a large and vibrant research group that includes about 15 full time researchers such as postdocs and other PhD students, with a further 20 researchers within ICARD.
  Investigating the potential of novel mimetic molecules (Toll-like receptor 4 antagonists) to modulate the microphage polarisation
  Research Group: Biomedical Research Group

  CRISPR-based deep mutagenesis for characterisation of functional domains in oncogenic signalling pathways
  Dr S Cook
Application Deadline: 27 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

CRISPR/Cas and base editing (BE) for genome manipulation have been transformative for the generation of cellular models to interrogate gene function in healthy and disease states.
