  Elucidating plant alkaloid biosynthesis
  Dr B R Lichman, Dr W Unsworth
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants are capable of forming complex natural products from simple starting materials. Many of these natural products are bioactive, but access is limited as they are difficult to synthesise using organic chemistry and are present in small quantities in the natural source.
  Fully-funded PhD positions in several natural sciences & engineering disciplines

Funding Type

PhD Type

Join an internationally renowned scientific community with the Hector FellowPhD program. PhD students benefit not only from the experience of the program, but also from the network of Hector Fellows.
  Synthetic Virology: Development of gene delivery vectors/synthetic vaccines
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Prof P G Stockley
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is worldwide interest in exploiting our modern understanding of genomics to target gene expression therapeutically via a variety of mechanisms, such as transgene insertion and CRISPR-Cas gene editing.
  Developing chemical probes to distinguish CDK4-cyclin D
  Prof J Endicott
Application Deadline: 15 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Number of awards. 1. Start date and duration. October 2020 for four years. Overview. CDK4/6 inhibitors have been approved to treat hormone responsive/HER2 negative breast cancer.
  A step change in the modelling of enzymatic catalysis
  Prof P Popelier, Dr L Johannissen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A deep understanding of enzymatic processes requires an atomic-level description, which is often beyond experimental techniques but achievable through synergy with computational chemistry.
  Learning from plant cell walls as a path for innovations in food and material sciences
  Dr Y Benitez-Alfonso, Dr C Bosch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The research will dissect the structural factors controlling cell walls and cell communication for two main purposes. to improve the health value of food crops and to design strategies for the valorisation of wasted plant materials.
  Bioscience for Renewable Resources for Medchem and Toward Sustainable Pharmaceutical Molecule Manufacture
  Prof R Goss
Application Deadline: 13 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

There is a need for novel and renewable technologies to enable the sustainable manufacture of pharmaceuticals. Enzymes offer a matchless opportunity for selective synthesis and late stage functionalisation, they also offer a sustainable, green and cost-effective approach toward synthesis.
