  (BBSRC DTP) The role of clock dysfunction in obesity-related inflammation and insulin resistance
  Dr D Bechtold, Dr S Cruickshank, Dr I Iqbal
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Obesity is one of the biggest challenges to public health in the UK and across much of the world. The major threat is in obesity-related metabolic disturbances, which drive insulin resistance, type-2 diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
  Modelling the effect of ageing on Drosophila and mouse clockneurons
  Dr J Hodge, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova, Prof H Piggins
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

All organisms are subject to daily environmental changes caused by the earth’s rotation leading to the evolution of circadian clock mechanisms that regulate changes in behaviour, physiology and metabolism across the day to ensure their timely occurrence and allowing environmental adaption.
  Circadian control of energy metabolism and inflammation
  Prof D Ray
Application Deadline: 10 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Employing a range of approaches to address the physiological importance of the circadian:nuclear receptor system, ranging from population genetics, Circadian mechanisms regulate most mammalian physiology, with particular importance in the regulation of innate immunity, through the macrophage in particular, and energy metabolism, regulating liver, adipose and muscle.
  Rhythmic control of energy balance - to understand how our internal clocks regulate energy metabolism
  Dr D Bechtold, Prof D Ray
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

24-hour rhythms are present in virtually all aspects of our behaviour and physiology. These rhythms are underpinned by circadian clocks that run throughout the body, and act within each tissue to orchestrate many organ functions and rhythmic activities (e.g.
  How does the macrophage molecular clock modulate thrombogenesis?
  Dr R Preston, Dr A Curtis
Application Deadline: 2 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of mortality and morbidity worldwide. A common feature of CVD is vascular inflammation that in turn promotes blood clotting and thrombosis.
  Unravelling and modelling endogenous controls of plant respiration. PhD in Geography (NERC GW4+ DTP)
  Prof S Sitch
Application Deadline: 6 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Dr Stephen Sitch, Department of Georgraphy, College of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Exeter. Additional Supervisors.
  Time-resolved analysis by cryo-electron microscopy of regulators of ubiquitin signalling
  Dr R Enchev
Application Deadline: 12 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This 4-year PhD studentship is offered in Dr Rado Enchev’s Group based at the Francis Crick Institute (the Crick).
  EASTBIO Time to hatch and feed: Neuroendocrine mechanisms underpinning appetite in birds
  Prof S Meddle, Prof G Leng
Application Deadline: 5 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies / The Roslin Institute. Aim. This fascinating PhD project will investigate the crucial time in every bird’s life.
  Fly, mouse and computational modelling of the effect of Alzheimer’s disease on clock neuron excitabilit
  Dr J Hodge, Prof K Tsaneva-Atanasova
Application Deadline: 25 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) involves amyloid-B and tau accumulation resulting in memory, sleep and circadian rhythm loss. How this occurs is unknown hampering the development of effective AD drugs.
  (MRC DTP) The importance of 24h rhythms in the gut microbiome for immunity
  Dr J Gibbs, Dr M Hepworth, Prof K Else
Application Deadline: 15 November 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gut microbiome is a collection of trillions of organisms. These bacteria and the metabolites they produce (through the breakdown of dietary components) play a critical role in the maintenance of immunity.
