  Cytoskeleton self-organisation and microtubule-based transport
  Prof A Straube
Application Deadline: 11 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Disciplines. Physical Sciences, Biological and Medical Sciences,. Subjects. Biophysics, Biochemistry, Cell Biology / Development.
  Mapping the three dimensional structure of RNA
  Prof M Wills
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We aim to combine organic synthetic chemistry, molecular biology, virology and computational biology tools to elucidate the 3D structure determinants behind RNA viruses such as dengue virus and coronaviruses.
  Warwick’s MRC-Funded DTP in Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research

Funding Type

PhD Type

Fully funded four-year studentships are available for September 2020 to join Warwick's MRC-funded Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).
  “Green carbon capture”: Towards a mechanistic understanding of how photosynthetic bacteria transport and store CO2.
  Dr A Cameron, Dr R Puxty, Prof D J Scanlan
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Membrane transport proteins enable small molecules such as nutrients, ions, neurotransmitters, and toxins to move across cellular membranes.
  A multidisciplinary approach to elucidate how TB obtains and uses essential energy sources
  Dr E Fullam, Dr A Cameron, Prof I Gibson
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Tuberculosis (TB) is a major global health challenge. TB is now the leading cause of death from a single infectious agent worldwide killing more people than HIV and malaria combined.
  Asymmetric cell division as mechanism for generating cell diversity
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryonic development, a single fertilised egg ultimately generates every cell of an organism. To generate diverse types of cells, some cell divisions occur asymmetrically, resulting in daughter cells inheriting different proteins and organelles.
  Bacterial ABC transporters involved in antibiotic resistance and sensing
  Dr A Crow, Prof D Roper, Dr S Gebhard
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Type VII ABC transporters are a superfamily of ATP-powered membrane proteins that function in bacterial antibiotic resistance, toxin secretion, cell division and membrane biogenesis [1,2,3].
  Biomass conversion into platform chemicals for a future biorefinery
  Dr V Degirmenci, Dr A Jones
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Biomass can be either purposefully grown through energy crops (e.g. miscanthus, switchgrass) or produced in large amounts as unwanted organic matter once edible components are collected.
  Circadian rhythms in plant-microbe interactions
  Prof G Bending, Dr I A Carré
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plants live in close association with complex communities of microbes which together constitute their ‘microbiome’. The microbiome interacts with the plant in numerous ways; some microbes are beneficial and promote plant growth, while others are pathogens which reduce crop yields.
  Developing novel drugs targeting gut microbiota-accelerated heart diseases
  Dr Y Chen, Prof T Bugg, Dr A Cameron
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

It is increasing evident that human is a “super-organism”. We co-exist with trillions of microorganisms in our body (collectively named as microbiota), and our health can largely depend on the interrelationship between ourselves and associated microbiome.
  Development of novel halogenase enzymes for biopharmaceutical applications
  Dr B Menon, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Identification of new halogenated synthetic, natural and non-natural compounds; and further exploitation and synthesis of these compounds are of extreme importance in this modern era.
  Engineering microbial chemical factories to produce renewable and modified biomaterials
  Dr B Menon, Dr C Corre
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The polymers, such as plastics are ubiquitous and integral in everyday human life with many applications that varies from medical, transport, electrical, construction and packaging.
  Epigenetics of the germline: how maternal cues get passed to the next generation
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr J Gutierrez-Marcos
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Recent evidence suggests that environmental signals received by somatic tissues can influence the phenotype of subsequent generations by reprogramming the germline.
  Evolving molecular switches
  Prof Richard Napier, Dr C Del Genio, Dr P Stansfeld
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

You will study two ligand-activated molecular switches in detail. Crystal structures for the related F-box proteins TIR1 and COI1 are available.
  Health span extension mediated by the diet and microbiota
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Although human longevity has increased through improved nutrition, sanitation and healthcare in the last century, the full benefits of this increased lifespan can only be realised if there is a parallel increase in the health-span of an individual.
