  A 3Rs approach to tumour metastasis: investigating the role of cancer stem cells in metastasis using an in vitro microfluidic model
  Dr A Biddle, Dr J Gautrot
Application Deadline: 8 February 2019
Applications are invited for a three year PhD studentship at QMUL, fully funded by the NC3Rs, to support an ambitious student with a strong interest in using cross-disciplinary ‘organ-on-a-chip’ approaches to improve the experimental modelling of human cancer.
  Carbonic anhydrases as a molecular target to destroy the therapy resistant cancer stem cells in small cell lung cancer (RDF19/HLS/AS/GIELING)
  Dr R Gieling
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Cancer treatment is often compromised by populations of cells which are resistant to the therapy. These cells possess stemness properties and are therefore often regarded to be the cancer stem cells (CSCs).
  Aldehyde dehydrogenase expression and function in cancer stem cells
  Research Group: Institute of Cancer Therapeutics
  Dr K Pors, Dr A Mardaryev, Prof A Locke
Applications accepted all year round
Applications are invited for a 3-year Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) PhD studentship to be held in the Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Bradford.
  How does amino acid metabolism affect tumour growth?
  Dr L. Cheng
Applications accepted all year round
The effect of diet on tumour growth is hotly debated but poorly characterized. Due to the heterogeneous nature of the tumours, dietary studies in patients with varied genetic background often led to inconclusive outcome.
  Therapy-induced senescence and stemness in ovarian cancer
  Prof R. Pearson, Dr K Chan
Applications accepted all year round
Cellular senescence is a stress response characterized by a robust cell cycle arrest and is a brake for malignant transformation.
  Mechanisms of Cancer Stem Cell Survival, Metastasis Formation and Immune Evasion in Cancer
  Dr D Widera
Applications accepted all year round
Recent research suggests that cancer cells within a tumour represent a highly heterogeneous cell population. In particular many tumours contain small percentage of cells that share several characteristics with stem cells.
  PhD in Cancer & Genetics - Investigating the influence of Wnt signalling in the leukaemic microenvironment during allogeneic stem cell transplantation
  Dr J Zabkiewickz, Prof O Ottmann
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
AML is an aggressive blood cancer requiring allogeneic stem cell transplantation to improve outcome in the vast majority of poor risk patients.
  Exploring Stem Cell Regulation by Heparan Sulphates using Chemical Biology and Glycomics Strategies
  Prof J E Turnbull
Applications accepted all year round
Heparan sulphates (HS) are complex sulphated polysaccharides expressed at the cell surface. They are essential co-receptors for many proteins, most notably many signalling growth factors, and they act as dynamic regulators of protein function.
  Haematopoietic Stem Cell Biology: Understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies
  Dr A Mead, Dr S Thongjuea, Dr B Psalia
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Understanding how the normal haematopoietic stem/progenitor hierarchy is disrupted during the development of myeloid malignancies.
  China Scholarship Council PhD Programme: How growth signals regulate replication licensing and cell division in normal and cancerous oesophageal cells
  Prof J Blow, Dr I Nathke, Prof R Petty
Application Deadline: 11 February 2019
In order to maintain genetic stability and prevent the amplification of chromosome segments, the process of DNA replication occurs in two strictly non-overlapping phases.
