  Understanding and exploiting bacterial sugar transporters for increased production of human prebiotics
  Prof G H Thomas, Dr D Ungar
Application Deadline: 29 March 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The production of prebiotic compounds like human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) is a valuable and expanding market for industrial biotechnology.
  Metabolomics informatics
  Prof J P J Chong, Dr E Rand
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are collecting untargeted metabolomics data on microbiomes associated with the process of anaerobic digestion (the conversion of waste biomass to biogas).
  New biological diagnostics for environmental contaminants
  Prof J Moir, Dr S D Johnson
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in recruiting a student interested in using biological methods to detect biological and chemical contamination in environmental samples.
  Improving arsenic tolerance in rice
  Prof F J M Maathuis, Dr H V Isaacs
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Arsenic (As) is an extremely toxic metalloid, which occurs ubiquitously in nature but is particularly prevalent in South-East Asia.
  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.
  Developing phage therapy to control plant pathogenic bacteria in the rhizosphere microbiome
  Dr V Friman
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant pathogenic bacteria cause considerable economic losses to food production systems. The main reason for this is that hardly any effective control methods exist to mitigate this damage.
  Nutritious crops: genomic approaches to improving the nutritional and commercial value of oilseed rape
  Prof Ian Bancroft, Dr A Harper
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Oilseed rape is the third largest source of vegetable oil in the world. It is also a fascinating species in which to undertake genomic studies due to its polyploid ancestry.
