  The role of cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs) in transcription and cell cycle control.
  Prof C Norbury, Prof S Murphy
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cyclin-dependent kinases (CDKs), including CDK1, 2, 4 and 6, act as master regulators of the cell cycle through phosphorylation of numerous protein targets (1).
  Global cellular controls in eukaryotic cells
  Dr P Nurse
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Paul Nurse’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick). The laboratory is interested in the global networks that regulate the eukaryotic cell cycle, cell form and cell growth.
  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.
  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

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.
  Homologous recombination: when, where and how does it act?
  Dr F Esashi
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our genomic DNA is constantly challenged by numerous environmental stresses, such as radiation and genotoxic drugs, as well as those arising from normal processes of cell growth, including DNA replication and transcription.
  Characterisation of the genotype and phenotype of epithelial cells invaded by the periodontal pathogen Porphyromonas gingivalis.
  Dr S Whawell, Dr G Stafford
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The presence of the Gram negative anaerobe Porphyromonas gingivalis is consistently associated with the more severe forms of periodontal disease and its ability to invade host epithelial cells is thought to be important in the pathogenesis of the disease.
  Regulation of mitotic and meiotic chromosome function by different cohesin complexes
  Research Group: Meiosis
  Dr E Martinez-Perez
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cohesin, the complex that provides sister chromatid cohesion (SCC) to ensure correct chromosome segregation during cell division, belongs to a family of SMC (structural maintenance of chromosomes) proteins conserved from bacteria to humans (1).
  Controlling the uncontrollables: How FAM83 proteins regulate the serine/threonine protein kinase CK1 family in cells
  Dr G Sapkota
Application Deadline: 1 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Members of the CK1 family of kinases, thought to be constitutively active, control a plethora of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, circadian rhythms, and Wnt signalling, yet how they are controlled to allow such diversity remains poorly understood.
  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.
