  Regulation of autophagy in human embryonic stem cells and its therapeutic application in induced pluripotent stem cell-based disease models
  Dr S Sarkar
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project background. Regulation of proteostasis is critical for maintaining tissue homeostasis. Autophagy, a major intracellular degradation pathway essential for cellular and energy homeostasis, functions in the clearance of aggregation-prone proteins and damaged organelles.
  Using convolutional neural networks to distinguish between autophagy and related processes
  Dr R Beale
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Rupert Beale’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
  Autophagy and neuroinflammation in Parkinson’s
  Dr J D Lane
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Autophagy is an essential catabolic process that protects cells against diverse stresses. Autophagy prevents many human diseases including neurodegeneration, so a complete understanding of this process is needed.
  Flaviviral manipulation of autophagy for biogenesis and evasion of host immune responses
  Dr S Sanyal
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project will investigate mechanisms of flavivirus biogenesis, with particular emphasis on Zika and Dengue. Current understanding on how progeny virions are assembled and secreted is limited.
  Novel autophagy pathways for the control of influenza virus infection (WILEMANQ20DTP)
  Prof T Wileman
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The recent outbreaks of avian influenza and the threat of a human influenza pandemic has highlighted the need to understand prevention and control of this virus by developing effective antiviral therapies.
  Finding the eat-me signals
  Dr I Ganley
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ganley lab is interested in unravelling the molecular mechanism of autophagy (which literally translates from the Greek meaning to eat oneself).
  Identifying new therapeutic targets for diabetic heart disease
  Dr K Mellor
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a PhD student to work in the field of cellular and molecular cardiac research in the Department of Physiology, University of Auckland.
  Impaired stress response as a pathological mechanism in Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1 and related degenerative conditions
  Research Group: Biomedical Sciences Research Centre
  Dr J Sleeman
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Myotonic Dystrophy Type1 (DM1) is an incurable inherited multi-system disease that results in numerous symptoms including early cataract development, which can be the first sign of the disease.
  How cells transform cytosol-invading bacteria into anti-bacterial signalling platforms
  Dr F Randow
Application Deadline: 3 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The cytosol of mammalian cells appears an attractive niche for bacterial pathogens since it is rich in nutrients. However, perhaps surprisingly, most intracellular bacteria avoid the cytosol and rather reside inside membrane-surrounded vacuoles.
  Elucidating the interplay between mitochondrial dynamics, organelle contact sites and metabolic (re)programming (On the University’s application portal, please select "PhD in Medical Science at the MRC Mitochondrial Biology Unit").
  Dr J Prudent
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Mitochondria house hundreds of biochemical reactions involved in processes critical for the survival and homeostatic adaptation of the cell.
