  (Photo)Synthetic Biology - Engineering Biohybrid Photosystems For Enhanced Solar Energy Conversion in Devices
  Dr M R Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is growing interest in the use of photosynthetic proteins in devices for solar energy conversion, biosensing, photosensing, photocatalysis, touch sensing, molecular electronics and biodegradable solar cells.
  Adhesion Pathways in Extracellular Matrix Organisation
  Prof J Adams
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The extracellular matrix (ECM) provides structural and mechanical support to tissues and modulates cell phenotype and behaviour in health and disease.
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  BBSRC PhD studentships with the South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP)

Funding Type

PhD Type

There are 4 year fully-funded 4 year PhD studentships* available to start in September 202019, across a wide range of bioscience academic disciplines.
  Biosynthetic Lego: Building antibiotic assembly lines from first principles
  Dr P Race
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nature has evolved many elegant strategies for the construction of complex bioactive natural products. The most sophisticated of these involves the action of giant assembly line like megaenzymes, which fuse and tailor simple carboxylic acid building blocks into a vast array of elaborate carbon scaffolds.
  Circadian control of secretory pathway function
  Prof D J Stephens
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cells are the fundamental unit of life. Our aim is to understand cell function in the context of membrane and cytoskeleton dynamics.
  Comparative studies of wound and cancer inflammation in plants and animals
  Prof P B Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms need to be able to repair wounds. A key aspect of this is combating the potential for infection when barrier layers are breached by tissue damage.
  Cytoskeletal dynamics and intracellular trafficking in angiogenesis
  Prof H Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Angiogenesis is the fundamental physiological process by which new blood vessels are generated from pre-existing vasculature.
  Effects of transcription on genome stability
  Prof N J Savery
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

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.
  Elucidating the mechanism of SMC complexes
  Prof M Dillingham
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The segregation of bacterial chromosomes is orchestrated by the co-ordinated actions of ParB and condensin [1]. ParB (also called Spo0J) is a site-specific DNA binding protein that binds at and around parS sequences near the origin of replication to form “ParB networks” which define the bacterial centromere [2].
