  Plant-microbial interactions: legume-rhizobial cover crops under drought and climate change
  Prof D Cameron, Dr E Harrison, Prof J Gray, Dr C Chater
Application Deadline: 8 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

To develop sustainable agriculture under climate change we need to tackle CO2 emissions and drought stress. Legume-rhizobial cover crops (leys) enhance carbon and nitrogen in soils, reducing vulnerability to drought and water pollution.
  Mechanistic Study of Molecular Assembly for Drug and Gene Delivery
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite numerous advances over the past several decades, effective drug and gene delivery with high efficiency, low toxicity and cell targeting remains challenging.
  Reactive Inkjet Printing of Flexible Devices for Cancer Diagnostics, Environmental Monitoring and Energy Store
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flexible devices such as microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs) have recently received significant attention as a potential platform for low-cost diagnostic assays.
  Reactive Inkjet Printing of Functional Swimmers
  Dr X Zhao
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Production of small-scale devices that can autonomously generate thrust via catalytic reactions within fluidic environments has become an increasingly active field and has led to a focus on potential applications including environmental monitoring and remediation, in vivo drug delivery and repair, and lab on a chip diagnostics.
  Development of Intronless Expression Plasmids for Biomanufacturing of Therapeutic Proteins
  Prof S A Wilson, Dr E Thomson, Dr I Sudbery
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Therapeutic proteins such as antibodies are a successful class of biologic drug used to treat a wide range of diseases in areas such as oncology, respiratory, inflammation, autoimmunity and cardiology.
  PhD: Improving Photosynthesis
  Prof A Fleming
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Improving photosynthetic efficiency has been identified as one of the few remaining traits for exploitation if we are to achieve the significant increases in crop yield required to feed the projected 9 billion world population by 2050.
  Nanotribological properties of organic surfaces
  Prof GJ Leggett
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Friction is ubiquitous in all sliding contacts. Much energy is dissipated in sliding contacts, and the minimisation of friction can make a significant contribution to the efficient use of fuels.
  Mechanisms of cell membranes repair in health and disease
  Dr B Ciani
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Compartmentalisation of chemical reactions and packaging of genetic material is fundamental for the healthy state of any biological cell.
  Engineering Cupriavidus Necator H16 to Convert CO2/Waste Stream into Useful Chemicals Using a Synthetic Biology Approach
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project falls under the umbrella of carbon capture and utilization (CCU), i.e., to turn a greenhouse gas CO2 into a useful feedstock for chemical syntheses.
  Enzyme Engineering for Industrial Biocatalysis
  Dr TS Wong
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fossil fuels have long been the primary energy and carbon sources, providing the raw materials needed for the manufacture of a wide range of products that we use daily.
