  Deciphering the origins of chromosome mis-segregation and aneuploidy in humans
  Prof A McAinsh, Prof N Burroughs
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The accurate segregation of chromosomes into daughter cells is a prerequisite for all eukaryotic life. In humans, this process maintains a diploid karyotype of 46 chromosome, with errors associated with a myriad of pathologies, such as tumour evolution, developmental disorders (i.e.
  MSc by Research Programme: Identification and role of key phosphorylation events during oocyte meio
  Prof F G Pelisch
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.
  Engineering synthetic ribosomal RNAs (rRNAs) in yeast
  Prof P Cai, Prof D Delneri
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Advances in DNA synthesis technology have led to rapid growth in the field of synthetic biology, heralding a nascent era of synthetic genomics.
  Defining the sequence requirements for neo-centromere function in the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe
  Dr W R A Brown, Dr W Wickstead
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Centromeres are the regions of the chromosome necessary for accurate segregation at cell division. They bind a complex set of proteins called the kinetochore which in turn tethers the chromosome to the microtubules of the spindle at cell division.
  How do human cells ensure the accurate segregation of chromosomes?
  Prof VM Draviam
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Investigating the mechanisms driving meiotic gene re-expression in cancer
  Dr U McClurg, Dr W Wei Tee
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Meiosis is a specialised type of cell division which involves genome rearrangements. Many of the genes involved in meiotic homologous recombination are meiosis-specific however, they also constitute a latent toolbox of chromosome remodelling and recombination factors, which can be exploited by cancer cells.
  The genomics of sperm killing gene drive
  Dr T Price, Prof G Hurst, Prof S Paterson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Many selfish genetic elements spread rapidly through populations by killing gametes that do not carry them. This fascinating phenomena also has practical applications.
  Laboratory of Gene Regulation
  Prof D Higgs, Prof J Hughes, Dr R Gibbons, Dr V Buckle
Application Deadline: 24 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Our laboratory is interested in the general question of how mammalian genes are switched on and off during lineage commitment and differentiation.

  Asymmetric cell division as mechanism for generating cell diversity
  Dr A Pires da Silva, Dr I Nezis
Application Deadline: 7 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

During embryonic development, a single fertilised egg ultimately generates every cell of an organism. To generate diverse types of cells, some cell divisions occur asymmetrically, resulting in daughter cells inheriting different proteins and organelles.
  Functional analysis of CIZ1
  Prof D Coverley
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

We are interested in the structure, function and disease implications of the CIZ1 protein, and related factors involved in organisation of the mammalian cell nucleus.
