  Bioplastic from sustainable feedstock – tackling the plastic challenge
  Dr K Tee
Application Deadline: 15 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plastic is used in many applications, including packaging, construction material, parts in the automotive, biomedical devices and electronic components.
  How do antibiotics kill bacteria?
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Despite being a lynchpin of modern healthcare we still do not understand how cell wall active antibiotics such as penicillin and vancomycin kill growing bacteria, although several theories have been proposed.
  The regulation of Staphylococcus aureus cell division
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staphylococcus aureus is a major human pathogen causing significant death and disease around the world. The problem is exacerbated by the spread of antibiotic resistant strains.
  The role of protein turnover in bacterial life and death
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The control of protein levels in bacterial cells is essential for their growth and survival. This is an interplay between protein synthesis and turnover.
  MRC DiMeN Doctoral Training Partnership: Investigating the in vivo targets and mechanism of action of a toxic acetylcholinesterase-derived peptide upregulated in Alzheimer’s disease
  Dr M Collins, Prof S Greenfield
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterised by the deposition and accumulation of amyloid beta plaques and phosphorylated tau filaments in the brain, the latter correlating with the onset of symptoms.

  BBSRC White Rose DTP Studentship - Role of cytidine deaminase in (epi)genetic adaptation of the plant immune system.
  Prof J Ton, Dr L Smith, Dr J Stassen
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

As sessile organisms, plants are masters in adapting to environmental stresses. Recent work from the Ton lab has shown that plants employ epigenetic mechanisms to prime their immune system long-term against potential pests and diseases.
  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.
