NWBio applications for 2024 entry are now closed.

Exciting news as we have 3 new PhD project opportunities advertised via the North West Bio DTP program.

There are projects with Elizabete, Marj, and Sam. These projects are intended to be Lancaster-based, but with strong links to partner institutions and the opportunity to spend at least some of the time working with co-supervisors based at these partner institutions.

Elizabete’s project is around Rubisco activase and thermal tolerance using biochemical, structural, and computational approaches, full details here: ENGINEERING PLANT RUBISCO ACTIVASE FOR THERMAL TOLERANCE



Marj’s project is contributing to ongoing work looking at engineering C2 photosynthesis into C3 plants using a synthetic biology approach. Full details here: RECREATING COMPONENTS OF C2 PHOTOSYNTHESIS IN ARABIDOPSIS



Sam’s project is looking at Barley and how it might cope with stress under future high CO2 conditions, using a range of techniques including physiology, you can find more details here: TOMORROW NEVER DIES: WILL A HIGH CO2 WORLD MEAN LESS STRESS FOR BARLEY?



For full details including eligibility and the application process please see the website for the North West Bio DTP.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the project supervisors before applying.
Applications close on 9th February 2024.
