  DNA Damage and Repair: Studying DNA damage and repair to understand the causes of cancer and improve its treatment
  Prof P McHugh, Prof J Rehwinkel, Prof A Harris
Application Deadline: 26 July 2019
Our DNA is constantly under threat from damaging agents. If unrepaired this DNA damage can lead to errors during genome duplication, including the mutations that can lead to cancer and other human diseases.
  Statistical physics of DNA replication
  Dr A Moura, Prof C Romano
Applications accepted all year round
The goal of this project is to apply statistical physics and probability theory to the problem of DNA replication in living cells.
  Forensic DNA Recovery and Amplification from Metal Surfaces
  Dr A Gray, Dr H Menard, Prof N Nic Daeid
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
The interaction of DNA with metal surfaces is likely to be complex with the composition of the metal surface with alloy composition, surface oxidation state and texture all being contributing factors to how the DNA is bound to the material surface.
  Defining the ‘molecular signature’ of PARP inhibitor sensitivity in blood cancers
  Dr T Gaymes
Applications accepted all year round
Despite significant advances in the understanding of the biology of blood cancers, identification of the most effective and safe form of treatment continues to present a formidable challenge to clinicians.
  Why do some DNA sequences poison cells?
  Research Group: BBSRC MIBTP
  Dr D Grainger
Applications accepted all year round
Life on our planet is permitted by an ancient set of instructions encoded by DNA. Consequently, the observation that a cell can be poisoned by its own DNA is completely counterintuitive.
  MRC DTP 4 Year PhD Programme: Dissecting the epigenetic regulation of enhancer function in hematopoiesis
  Dr K Rasmussen, Dr G Schweikert
Application Deadline: 19 April 2019
This project is part of our exciting and challenging University of Dundee 4-year MRC DTP Programme in Quantitative and Interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical science.
  Investigating Potential Applications of Functional DNA-based Materials and Sensors
  Prof J Tucker
Applications accepted all year round
This PhD project falls into the areas of supramolecular chemistry, chemical biology and DNA nanotechnology and involves the preparation and study of DNA-based materials and sensors.
  Activation of targeted DNA Damage Response as a novel therapy for Ovarian Cancer
  Dr E. Sanij, Prof R. Pearson
Applications accepted all year round
High-grade serous ovarian cancer (HGSOC) is the most common and aggressive subtype of ovarian cancer and accounts for 70% of all ovarian cancer deaths.
  Investigating the role of lysine methylation in the DNA damage response.
  Dr M Higgs
Applications accepted all year round
Our genomic DNA is under constant attack from DNA damaging agents, which are a continuing threat to genomic integrity. Defective resolution of DNA damage underlies several human diseases, including haematopoietic abnormalities and developmental disorders as well as cancer.
  Epigenetic machine learning: utilizing DNA methylation patterns to predict age
  Dr X Zhai, Prof L Schalkwyk, Dr K McDonald-Maier
Application Deadline: 7 May 2019
Basic Funding details – Full time Home/EU fees and a stipend of £15,009 p.a. Application deadline – Tuesday 7th May 2019. Start date – October 2019.
