  PhD position in Developmental Neurobiology: to understand the role and mechanism of action of the Prdm12 gene
  Dr E Bellefroid, Dr A Garcia-Pino
Application Deadline: 31 March 2019
We are seeking highly motivated candidates to join us on a project beginning in 2019 on the molecular mechanisms of sensory neurogenesis.
  Clinical Genetics: Building the skull – normal and abnormal development
  Prof A Wilkie, Dr S Twigg
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Working closely with the craniofacial teams based in Oxford and other UK units, we specialise in the application of whole exome and genome sequencing to children born with a serious malformation of the skull termed craniosynostosis.
  Using genetics to explore patterns of change in weight and height during key life course periods on subsequent health outcomes
  Prof D Lawlor, Prof K Tilling, Dr N Warrington
Application Deadline: 1 February 2019
3/4-year PhD starting in October 2019. Closing date. 5pm, 1st February 2019. We are offering an exciting PhD opportunity for candidates interested in using innovative statistical methods to investigate the causal role of pubertal growth on health outcomes in adulthood.
  Engineering Big Data solutions to mining Imaging Genetics data through Deep Learning
  Dr E Robinson
Applications accepted all year round
First Supervisor - Dr Emma Robinson. Second Supervisor - Professor David Edwards.
  Developmental response induced by abiotic stress during seed development in Brassica sp.
  Dr H.S Robert Boisivon
Application Deadline: 3 February 2019
Food production mostly relies on a proper sexual plant reproduction. Therefore research in fundamental aspects of seed development is crucial to the understanding of processes involved in seed viability.
  Studying chloroplast biogenesis in the basal land plant Marchantia polymorpha: Using CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing and forward genetics to assess functional conservation and seek novel components
  Prof P Jarvis, Prof L Dolan
Applications accepted all year round
Chloroplasts are responsible for photosynthesis, and are the organelles that define plants [1]. They evolved as a result of an endosymbiotic relationship between a cyanobacterium and an algal progenitor, in a process that began over a billion years ago.
  Epigenetic transitions in Development
  Prof R Meehan
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
This is one of several projects available on an MRC funded 4-year multi-disciplinary PhD programme in Human Genetics, Genomics and Disease at the MRC Human Genetics Unit (HGU), part of the Institute of Genetics and Molecular Medicine (IGMM) at the University of Edinburgh.
  Evolution of Reproductive traits - to elucidate the genetic and developmental basis of reproductive failure
  Dr N Hemmings
Applications accepted all year round
Sexual selection is underpinned by variation in reproductive success. Our research group studies the mechanisms underpinning this variation, primarily using birds as a model.
  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.
  PhD in Psychological Medicine & Clinical Neuroscience - Testing the role of relative age within school year on mental health in children with neurodevelopmental vulnerability
  Prof S Collishaw, Dr K Langley
Application Deadline: 27 February 2019
In the UK one in eight children and young people experiences a mental health disorder at any given time. Preventing and ameliorating the impact of mental health problems is a priority, however effective prevention requires the identification of potentially modifiable causal risk factors.
