  Regulation of cell cycle progression in skeletal muscle stem cells
  Dr A G Borycki
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The ability of skeletal muscles to regenerate in response to injury, exercise, growth or disease depends on a population of adult skeletal muscle stem cells called satellite cells.
  MSc by Research Programme: Does CDK1 regulate NICD turnover in a cell cycle dependant manner in Drosophila Melanogaster?
  Prof J K Dale, Dr J Januschke
Application Deadline: 16 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

This course allows you to work alongside our world renowned experts from the School of Life Sciences and gain a ’real research’ experience.
  Cell cycle regulation in Arabidopsis
  Prof L Bogre
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Plant growth is tightly controlled by environmental factors. We investigate how these stress and growth stimulatory factors regulate plant growth and cell cycle.
  Novel non-coding RNAs in Drug response, DNA Damage and Aging
  Dr A Kanhere
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. One of the biggest surprises of human genomic sequencing was the finding that only ~2% of the genome codes for proteins.
  Regulation of host cell DNA damage response pathways by adenovirus
  Dr A S Turnell, Dr C McCabe
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Human adenoviruses are small non-enveloped viruses with a linear, double-stranded DNA genome. Adenovirus has long served as a faithful model for dissecting the molecular basis of key cellular signalling pathways that regulate fundamental biological processes such as cell growth, cell differentiation and cell death.
  Proteomic analyses of adhesion signalling in cancer
  Prof M J Humphries
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Why adhesion? Cell surface adhesion receptors play key roles in the control of cell movement, survival, division and differentiation.
  Characterization and functional analysis of a novel cancer-associated gene
  Dr JP de Magalhaes
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This opportunity will remain open until the position has been filled. In order to identify new candidate cancer-related genes, our lab developed a bioinformatics “guilt-by-association” method to identify and rank genes that are co-expressed with known cancer-related genes.
  Cryo-Electron Microscopy of Histone Deacetylase Complexes
  Prof J Schwabe, Dr S Cowley
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Histone deacetylase complexes play a role in many cellular processes, such as cancer, cell cycle progression and DNA repair. Investigating how these HDAC complexes act to control gene expression and their interactions with other proteins should lead to an understanding of their influence in the cell.
  Deep learning approaches to discover new roles for non-canonical protein modifications in cancer
  Prof C E Eyers, Prof A Jones
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Abnormal protein phosphorylation is strongly associated with cancer aetiology. Considerable efforts have been undertaken to profile phosphorylation signalling networks acting through serine, threonine and tyrosine residues.
  Understanding microtubule-actin crosstalk in neuronal cell migration
  Prof A M Fry, Prof I D Forsythe
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Summary. This BBSRC-funded 4-year PhD studentship will address the mechanism of action of a microtubule-associated protein, EML4, in promoting microtubule-actin crosstalk and neuronal cell migration [1].
  The role of phase separation in epigenetic inheritance by Polycomb Group proteins.
  Dr N Francis
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, the role of phase separation in organizing macromolecules in cells is increasingly appreciated. This includes the organization of chromatin into physical and functional domains.
  Basal stem cells in the lung and their recognition of dying cells
  Prof T Hussell, Dr N Fujino
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Stem cell division and differentiation is critical for barrier repair following inflammation, but the initial trigger for this process is unknown.
  Developing and applying genetically encoded proteins as pre-resonant coherent Raman scattering tags for next-generation live-cell imaging
  Dr D Jones, Prof W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr P Watson
Application Deadline: 5 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC funded DTP PhD Studentship within the Interdisciplinary Doctoral Training Hub “Physics of Life”. The Hub is designed as a cross-disciplinary PhD research and training programme at the physics/life science interface.
  The regulation of Staphylococcus aureus cell division
  Prof S J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Staphylococcus aureus is a major human pathogen causing significant death and disease around the world. The problem is exacerbated by the spread of antibiotic resistant strains.
  What is the significance of MCT1 distribution to a novel subcellular location (nucleus) for cancer progression?
  Dr A Latif, Prof K Williams, Dr A Hurlstone
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

MCT1 is a transmembrane protein involved in cell metabolism and mediates transport of monocarboxylates (such as pyruvate {a metabolic substrate} and lactate {a metabolic by product}) in and out of the cell.
