  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 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.
  Discovery of novel pharmaceuticals from marine and desert microorganisms
  Prof M Jaspars, Dr R Ebel
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Microorganisms from extreme environments such as the deep seas, cold seas and hyper arid deserts have been shown to produce a range of complex natural products with high biological activity.
  Genome mining of novel antimicrobial natural products from new bacterial strains
  Dr H Deng, Prof M Jaspars
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.
  Characterisation of SNA-2, a potential target for new drugs against parasitic nematodes.
  Dr B Mueller, Dr J Pettitt
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Spliced leader trans-splicing is a conserved and essential step involved in gene expression in many animal and human parasites that is responsible for the formation of mRNA 5’ ends in these organisms.
  Novel tools for bioengineering gut anaerobes
  Dr K Scott, Dr S Shaw
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Bioengineering is widely used to incorporate new activities into specific bacteria, for example the industrial production of 1,3-propanediol from glycerol by Clostridium butyricum (1).
  The mechanistic basis of eukaryotic operons as a gene expression strategy.
  Dr J Pettitt, Dr B Mueller
Application Deadline: 28 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nematodes are a highly successful group of organisms, having adapted and colonised a wide range of environmental niches. For many nematodes these niches are the other animals and plants that they parasitise.
  Functional magnetic nanomaterials as the next generation of bioproducts for healthcare applications
  Dr A Fernandez-Castane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A three-year project for doctoral studies is offered to support the application of highly motivated graduates willing to pursue their PhD studies.
  London Interdisciplinary Biosciences Consortium (LIDo)

Funding Type

PhD Type

 . LIDo is an exciting collaboration between UCL, Kings College London, Queen Mary, Birkbeck, Royal Veterinary College and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, six of London's world-class universities and specialist institutions.
  Investigating the requisites of increasing the reuse of waste electrical and electronic equipment in the UK
  Dr E Iacovidou
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Waste minimisation is key to implementing the circular economy. Circular economy is a concept that promotes the efficient use of resources, by retaining them in the economy for as long as possible, thereby increasing their longevity.
  Nanoparticles in drug delivery
  Dr G Stenbeck, Dr U Kishore
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoparticles (NPs) are materials with overall dimensions in the nano scale range (5nm-100nm). Due to their unique physicochemical properties, they have found a wide range of applications and are currently explored as drug and gene delivery vehicles.
  Seeking critical branch points in bacterial evolution with comparative genomics
  Prof N Saunders, Mr A Khan
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This is a bioinformatics and comparative genomics-focussed project, seeking to identify the basis of speciation and sub-speciation of bacterial species accounting for the development of individual and independent lineages.
  Multitasking abilities – Are computerised laboratory tasks predictive of real-world tasks?
  Dr A Szameitat, Dr A Parton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Multitasking, i.e. the concurrent performance of two or more tasks, has been investigated in many different domains. In Cognitive Psychology, experimental paradigms such as the task switching paradigm or the dual-task paradigm of the Psychological Refractory Period (PRP) are the most widely used multitasking paradigms.
  Developing a clinical tool to quantitatively assess and monitor upper limb and shoulder function in clinical and home settings
  Dr A Shaheen
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Upper limb and shoulder disorders are poorly defined, diagnosed and rehabilitated. Current management of these disorders is focussed on the prescription of physiotherapeutic treatments, yet the efficacy of such treatments is not well established and the prognosis of patients with shoulder disorders is very poor.
  BBSRC Case Studentship: A novel approach to Biopharm cell line selection using advanced molecular microscopy and chemical profiling.
  Dr P Watson, Prof P Borri, Prof W Langbein
Application Deadline: 21 June 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cultured cell lines have great potential within the pharmaceutical industry for the production of biotherapeutics. Our understanding of the cellular, metabolic and genetic mechanisms underpinning various biological processes within “producer” cell lines are not fully understood.
